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 some pages that I printed out though. Oh well.
I have dreams written down (and yes I know the passcode :) since 2006. I have well over 375 pages worth to this day. The majority of the pages have 2 - 5 or so dreams for the day. If had to guess, I may have close to 2000 dreams. I find this FASCINATING! I type my dreams out in Word document. I give it a title which helps me to recall a particular dream. Instead of saying I have my dreams in a notebook...I say I have a manual of my life! :)
I find it ABSOLUTELY fascinating and exciting to write down the dreams. At times I am more focused on getting it typed. Then later, it could be weeks or months later, I'll go back and re-read them. It blows my mind to read a dream that I had 6 months ago. If you were to ask what's going on in my life now, it would be just about word for word from the dream I had six months ago! That just blows my mind. It fascinates me how that happens!
If I get down about a situation in my life I'll go back and read my dreams only to find what it says the outcome of the situation would be. Its as if I give myself a little reading. This causes me to stay focused on the good or the learning lesson or the reason I'm going through whatever it is. It keeps me focus.
Symbols - to my amazement if I didn't write down my dreams I would not realize that I dream of the same symbols at times. For instance this year I realized since January I've periodically had dreams that has a pick up truck in it. I also realized I have had patterns about time in the last month or so. I've had dreams about the 3:00 hour. If I didn't write the dreams down, I definitely would have missed it.
Here's one more for the road. I found a print out of a dream from September 2000. The content of the dream was of me asking if I was going to get a new car or not. Well I was shown a car way down the road sitting under a garage. In the dream I was frustrated with the salesman because I couldn't see the car from that far away. So I walked away irritated with him. The end. Well today I laugh about that dream.
The dream showed me that 'yes I will be getting another car down the road (in life)'. And I did in the spring of 2003! What really gets me to this day is I saw the color in 2000 but never paid much attention that I bought the exact same color! The car in the dream was a 4 door car and I purchased a 4 door car. Ask and you shall receive! At the time of the dream, my car at that time was acting up and I wondered if I was going to have to get another car. The dream was a confirmation of yes and to have patience. Neat, huh? :) Had I not written down the dream, I wouldn't have ever remembered such a thing.
