5 Reasons to Keep a Dream Journal

This may come as a surprise to you. Your dreams are powerful communication vessels from your higher self sending you messages about your life.

Every night when you go to bed, when you fall asleep, you actually let go of your physical focus and emerge into the non-physical.

And every night when you fall asleep, through your dreams, you are given profound messages from your higher self about solving every problem and fulfilling every desire that you want in your physical world.

Through your dreams, you get the answers on how to get everything that you want!

But the problem is that most of us are not careful about going to sleep in a high vibrational state of mind. Instead, we tend to fall asleep worrying about this or that.

Even if you have a wonderful, prophetic dream every night, if you were feeling bad when you fell asleep, then that wonderful, awesome, profound dream instead gets interpreted or translated as a nightmare, or a strange dream.

This is why it is important to go to bed feeling as good as you can. You can help yourself interpret your dreams and achieve your desires - when you lead a dream journal.

Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Keep a Dream Journal.

1. It will help you get information about what direction to take in life.

Most of us rarely get to this level of dreaming. Usually when we fall asleep, we almost always do so from a lower vibrational level.

On the rare occasion you do fall asleep in a very high vibrational state of mind, you will then get a pure and unobstructed message from your higher self and will definitely want to write it down.

The problem with dreaming is that many times we quickly forget what we dreamt about.

Edgar Cayce, who was a renowned, well-documented psychic of the 20th century, said that when you first wake up from a dream, you will be able to remember it perfectly until you start moving around.

Remain still, think a little bit about your dream, and then right away, grab a pen and your dream journal and write it down. If you move around too much, your dream will be lost.

2. It will help you to keep track of how you are feeling.

If you have a bad dream, that means that you aren't feeling very good during your awakened state. Your dreams can help you figure out how you are really feeling.

Many times, we think that we are feeling better than we actually are.

Instead of beating yourself up about it, all you have to do is simply choose to think more positive thoughts during the day.

3. It will help you to learn how to have a lucid dream.

A lucid dream is a dream where you are aware that you are dreaming. In a lucid dream you are able to control your dream to one extent or another.

You can either get into a lucid dream while you are falling asleep, or while you are waking up. Either way, it is always recommended that you keep a dream journal so that you can more easily induce a lucid dream.

  • The great thing about a lucid dream is that you can do anything that you want to do.
  • You can travel anywhere you want.
  • Experience anything that you want to experience.
  • Do it all without limitations.

Lucid dreaming is a fun skill to master. In order to make it happen more easily, it is recommended that you keep a dream journal.

4. You will be able to research the meaning of things you dreamt about.

Fortunately, it is easy to research anything on the internet.

If you have a dream that has an owl in it, you can research what the owl represents and see the deeper meaning - and usually it's the one that resonates most with you. Any object or any type of an animal can have significance to you.

When you keep a dream journal, you will be able to keep track of some of the odd, bizarre things that you dream about, therefore beginning to shine light on the meaning behind it all.

Keeping a dream journal will help you grow as a person. Especially if you can learn how to remember your dreams with ease.

5. It's fun!

Let's face it – dreams are fun to remember and analyze. It can become a fun hobby to analyze your dreams and to compare your dreams with those of others.

Add a little fun to your life and start keeping a dream journal! You'll be glad you did.
