    My Dream Journal

    I created this group as, even though there are already groups for people who dream, and dream lucidly or vividly, I saw none for people who keep track of said dreams in a journal. Seeing as there are numerous websites where people may keep journals of their dreams (including...

    Dreaming Is Important

    I keep a dream journal because I have very vivid and action packed dreams. I want to remember them so I write them down as soon as I wake up, assuming I remember them. My latest dream:I looked out the window of my parent's sun room to see the moon- full, huge and so bright. I...

    Not Only Do I....

    ...but I also keep up with dream interpretations too. I use my LiveJournal account to post my dreams and keep up with them. I also like using the site Dream Moods to find meanings of symbols in my dreams. It's been my experience it's very accurate for me and my dreams. I think...

    I Keep a Dream Journal

    I keep a dream journal. I have consistently started writing down my dreams (again) since in 2006. I have some dreams written from early 2000 on HOWEVER I password protected the disk so now I have NO clue how to crack the code. Maybe I'll dream about that! :) I have found...

    Very rarely do I ever dream.

    I know that people have several dreams a night and just might not remember them. I can't find any way to remember my dreams. I started keeping a dream journal, writing the date I had a dream and some of what it was about. The last time I had a dream was June 26, and I only...

    I Keep A Dream Journal

    Dreams have always fascinated me. I do believe that dreams have a purpose and one day we will fully understand. When I was a kid I used my nightly dreams as an escape from reality. I've been documenting my dreams for at least 10 years. I just recently started keeping a notebook...

    Last night I had a very vivid dream,

    in fact so vivid that it woke me up. In my dream I was in my bed, laying there, drifting off to sleep. I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye and then to my absolute horror realized there was an enormous snake in the room. Dim amber color from my night lamp was...

    Another dream i had today,

    was about a white monkey. Me and my mother were sitting in grass in front of my house. There was a white monkey with us and it hugged both of us before jumping onto my neighbors fence. It jumped off but the shadow stayed on the wall. It hugged me again and left, my dream ending...

    I'm starting a dream journal. Today was my first entry. After reading it, I've begun to question my sanity.

    Today, my first dream was about Thranduil.

    Me and some dwarves were standing on this ledge. Thranduil was talking to another dwarf and then i called him over, saying we had to talk. He came over and we walked up the stairs, onto a street. The stairs were like little ponds with fish in it but i couldn't see the fish, just...

    For About 4 Months

    My Deepest Thoughts In Plain Sight..

    I love love love, my dream journal. It is natural and quite common to forget a dream. But when you write it down spur of the moment, it makes it all the better to re-read later. Its funny, it can be hours later in the day, and a super important dream will come to me, I immediatly...

    Sometimes I simply don't want to write them down ANYWHERE. They're too stupid sometimes. But most of the time I write them down anyway. edit: I changed my habit and write every dream down nowadays. It's amazing. I sleep well, but remember dreams anyway. Because normally I...

    My First Lucid Dream

    I had my first lucid dream since starting my dream journal a month ago (my second ever in my whole life that I remember). Oddly enough, it was during a nightmare. There was this Insidious-esque lady coming after me in a school, and there was this haunting thought pervading in my...

    I only recently started keeping a dream journal

    (for so long I never had to because I could always remember and analyze my dreams for at least a day), and since then it's been quite the journey. I don't know how many of you believe in metaphysical science, the consciousness shift or other things in that realm, but I've felt...

    Help! My Dreams Are Disappearing

    I've always had very complex dreams. As a child, a dream without a plot was basically a dream wasted. My family was surprised when I said kidnapping was one of my favorite events in dream because it was so fun to show those kidnappers who the boss was. I can also control my...

    Started A Dream Journal

    The reason I started a dream journal was due to the fact that I noticed that my dreams turn into reality. It's pretty interesting. I noticed after I had my car accident that a lot of instances I've 'felt' before. Like converstations, people, buildings, etc. I've seen them in my...

    I've tried keeping a dream journal before

    but I soon lost interest and motivation. Recently I bought a little A5 note pad (a nice moleskine one) and I've been writing in it for the past few days. At first my dreams were only a couple of pages long, but today I managed to write seven pages! I've always had a knack for...

    A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
