Dream Journal query

Postby deepakkumaar97 » 09 Mar 2013 15:40

So, it has been a month since I started writing my dream journal.
I write about 1-2, and sometimes even 3 pages, Now I am tired of writing this much, so, I was thinking is it okay if I write only specific and main points?
Because that would save a lot of time and energy.
Thank You

I stopped writing my dream journal too because it would take so long. I would spend up to two hours a day trying to write it all down in detail. But it doesn't mean I stopped recalling my dreams. I always take a moment in the morning while still in bed to think back and remember all I can. And then I write it down on paper in note form and that is it. I still lucid dream, if that is your reason for asking, I think recalling the dream is all that is needed, but it is fun to read past dreams I had and I wish I had written them down.

And even if I had all the money in the world it is impossible to hire somebody to write it for me!

Anyway, if you want a dream journal to help with lucid dreaming, recalling a dream happens in the mind, not with a paper and pencil (or computer), but after a week or so my notes don't seem to spark the memory as much as a fully fleshed out paragraph does. But by simply remembering them as events that happened to me as if they were a different day between days is all it takes I think. (that's just the dream journal aspect of lucid dreaming I'm talking about, a good night's sleep is also important!)

One last thought: Dream journals should be fun. Once it becomes work, take a break and only record the dreams you WANT to record. Or write down the basic gist of them all and only expound on the ones you want to.
