We all dream every night but many of us only remember little snippets of our dreams. During our sleep time our conscious mind or ego is switched off, making it easier for guidance to come through.
Keeping a dream journal is an excellent way to record and remember your dreams and the guidance you are receiving. Keep your journal by your bedside so that you can write in it as soon as you wake; as this will give you the most chance of remembering bits from your dreams. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make sense now, it will do at a later date, when you have more information. Any information no matter how irrelevant it may seem is worth writing down!
How to keep a Dream journal
Date your dream and then write down everything that you can remember. Write everything in the present tense.
Identify dream themes. Think about the location, characters, sensations, sounds, objects and emotions of the dream and how the dream made you feel.
You may then want to analyse the themes and fully interpret your dream. Otherwise, continue to write down all the memorable details in your dream journal.
Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation and grammar. As long as you can read it back later and it makes sense to you then it is fine.
Sketch any strong images from the dream. It doesn’t matter if you’re not an artist. A sketch is just to help you visualise the dream later on.
When you have finished, jot down any major events that are going on in your life at the moment so that you can link your dreams to reality.
Give the dream a title as this will make it easier for you to look back on.
Personalise your journal, add pictures, drawings etc. make it special to you.
Every now and then have a look through what you have written in your journal and see if there is a pattern emerging or if some of the dreams are now making sense. As we know our angels provide messages and guidance whilst we are in a dream state as then our ego can’t interfere whilst we are sleeping. This guidance is important; as we dream the same or similar dreams when getting guidance and they will keep happening until we understand the message we are being given.
We can also ask our angels, guides and loved ones to visit us in our dreams and give us answers and guidance. You can try saying the following just before you fall asleep or you can write it in your journal so that you have a record of the questions you have asked. You can address your question to angels, your guardian angel, guides or loved ones i.e. Archangel Michael or your Nan.
“Dear angels, whilst I am sleeping tonight please could you give me messages or guidance about my work situation, thank you.”
“Dear angels, please can you help me remember my dreams in the morning when I wake. Thank you.”
This is a lovely record to keep, so get a pretty notebook or decorate one yourself.
