Dream Journal Entry Length

Postby Unionformity » 25 Jan 2014 05:39

Hey forum,
Today I'd like to ask about dream journals. I am horrible at writing my dreams down every morning, and that's either because I can't remember them at all or the only parts I can remember are very short and seemingly too complex to write down. I was wondering, just how long does each dream entry have to be? We're all suggested to write for at least 10-15 minutes, but what if all we can remember takes much less than that to write, or we're simply not writing down every specific detail? And can it impede our journey to lucidity by damaging our dream recall?
Thanks again,
*Should be Uniconformity

I don't think it matters how long you write something down, just write something.

1.As soon as you wake up think "Oh I dreamt, my dream journal!"
2. Don't do anything but go over your dream.
3 Get your dream journal out and start writing.

I helps if your dream journal is right beside your bed so then you don't move as much so you will remember more.

And yes write down anything you remember

Write down what you can remember however brief and vague. Write dreams in the present tense as it reinforces the idea that they are not gone and you relive them. Revise your dream journal occasionally. Do all these things and you will notice a considerable mnemonic improvement.

For me, i remember 5 dreams per day but the problem is that i dont have time to write all them.

I wake up at 4:00, and remember 3 dreams but i only write 1 dream because i take 45min to write only a dream. Then i go back to sleep and Wake up at 5:40 and remember 1 or 2 dreams and write it as fast, (because here school start at 7:00) and i refall asleep and wake up at 6:00 and remember a dream, at that time i only draw image while im taking my breakfast and when i come back i will complete.

Get motivation by lucid dreaming and you will remember a lot of dream.

I just write the dream out in point form with key words to jog my memory and then go back to sleep. Later I use those notes to write the dream out in long form on a computer. It's amazing how only few words is all it takes to remember a dream and write out full pages later on.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.
