Dream Journaling…7 Tips & Tricks!

Dreaming is one of the easiest, most natural ways to connect with the spirit world. It’s been taken for granted in the modern world, mostly because of people’s lack of understanding, and the knowledge behind why we dream having been lost and/or forgotten. Ancient civilizations had a great understanding of why we dream, and they used this information to connect with the spirit world.

Dreaming is truly – an extension of our reality – and that naturally allows you very easy access into the spirit world. This is where dream journaling can become very helpful. Why dream journaling? Because it’s the first step to helping you remember your dreams, even if you don’t think you dream. Secondly, it will allow you to become more familiar with this “other reality”, and the other dimensions that you visit. Lastly, it will help you to learn how to analyze what information you are receiving from the spirit world or your Spirit Guides. So here are 7 tips for dream journaling: 

1) First you should pick a good dream journal and leave it by your bed.

Pick something that you like, try not to just throw a few sheets of paper over there, unless that’s all you have at the moment. A journal specifically picked to be your dream journal helps to keep everything in order and not be cluttered with other things like shopping lists, etcetera. Also, make sure that you have something to write with. You don’t want to be searching around for something to write with in the middle of the nigh or morning.

2) This is very important: always write in your dream journal first thing in the morning. 

You are still in a groggy state when you wake up, and you are still tapped into your higher consciousness, so this is when you can really get some great information. The later in the day it gets, the foggier the dream becomes and it makes it very hard to remember all the details.

3) Try to write something in your dream journal every day for two months. 

Even if it’s something short that seems insignificant. The reason for this is, many times writing will jog your memory of other things that happened during the dream state. It is also during these two months that you are honing in this new skill.

4) Ask for guidance before you fall asleep.

Talk to your Spirit Guide and ask them for their guidance. Ask them to help you with a specific problem at work, a personal issue, or whatever it is that you are stressed about. Do not get frustrated if you do not “dream” your solution right away. This is a training process; you are shifting your perspective on why you dream, and training yourself to utilize dreaming more effectively, it takes time.

5) Give each dream a name or title. 

This helps you to find dreams faster if you are searching for a specific one later. It also allows you to sum up the overall “feel” of the experience you are going to be writing down. It’s like giving a title to a story. Or in some instances just by naming the dream or giving it a title can trigger an awareness of the overall meaning of the dream.

6) Put more emphasis on the “feel” of the dream than the actual dream itself.  

Write down symbols and all of that, but make sure you note how you felt throughout the dream; lost, confused, happy, concerned, etcetera. This theme on how you “feel” is repetitive when developing your spirit communication skills. Your sixth sense is felt in the body and throughout this entire process you are going to retrain yourself how to get back in touch with these senses. So, in essence, how you “feel” during the dream is just as important as everything else you can remember.

7) After writing down your dream, look at your dream from an outsider’s perspective. 

View it from outside of yourself and try to form an overall picture of what the dream means with no attachment. Try and connect the dots; if you are scared of something and you dream about it, then you are probably facing something during your waking conscious state that you are scared of.

Slowly as you dream journal, and watch the patterns in your dreams, it will open a whole new door to the spirit world for you. However, it takes time, so be persistent and patient. And watch the dream world to unfold.
