Benefits of a dream journal practice:
- It helps reduce overall stress by building a mindful, reflective writing practice.
- It increases creativity by helping you connect with untapped parts of the right side of the brain and imagination.
- Recording dreams immediately may help you capture a brilliant idea that came to you in your sleep.
- It helps you solve problems by linking the creative right brain and the logical left brain.
- It helps you review patterns and learn from ‘mistakes’.
Tips on how to recall your dreams:
- Keep a recording device by the bed (paper notepad, notes app on your phone, or voice memo).
- Record even small snips and symbols from the dream before you leave the bed in the mornings.
- Practice good sleep hygiene each night. If you’re exhausted, you’re less likely to recall dreams.
And attached you’ll find a document that gives you tips on how to work with your dreams (both individually and in our circle). I will be covering this over the course of our time together, so no need to try to master this right now.
But for now, here are the basic questions to ask yourself when reflecting on a dream in your journals:
- How did you feel in the dream?
- How did you feel about the dream?
- How did you feel when you woke up from the dream?
- What are the key symbols, people, or images in the dream?
- What do those symbols mean to you?
I am looking forward to gathering again with you beautiful souls!
