#4 – Keep A Dream Journal
The most important thing any aspiring dream adventurer should do is always keep a regular record of the dreams which he/she is seeing . In the beginning it would be a bit difficult I know, but you can think of it in a way like like creating a map of the territory which you want to explore.
Ideally, you should write all the dreams even if that dream wasn’t making any kind of sense. But immediately after you wake up in the morning try doing this. For those who find it difficult to write it all down then you can record your voice in your phone and later write it down in your journal. Sometimes you might find it difficult to remember your dream. Even after considerable effort it could be difficult at that time just write down the details, emotions or any thought you remember after you woke up.
One important thing don’t edit out any embarrassing aspect which you see in your dream and you are not comfortable to write it down. Trust me it’s a bad idea. Even if you consider it very embarrassing then no one’s looking at it, you have to write complete details of it. So try to be honest with yourself.
Also, include additional information such as what time you went to bed, the time you woke and what was your mood before sleep. This might sound like way to much details but trust me it’s important.
This journal will become your map of the universe of your mind and it expands just beyond your dreams.
This journal can help you create a relationship with your dreams, which is simply not possible by any other way.
