Dream Diary

I believe that I dream every single night. I tend to remember most of my dreams as I am waking up. Some of them stick with me and affect my starting mood. Some of them are reoccurring and then there are the bizarre dreams that make me question my imagination.

I spoke a little about some of my reoccurring dreams not too long ago and a couple of you thought that keeping a dream journal would be a good idea. Yesterday I went out and bought a notebook which I will keep by my bed and make notes of any dreams I remember as I wake. There are times when I remember slight details of a dream and then there are other times when I can recall the entire thing as if I had just watched a movie during my slumber.

If there happens to be anything that I record in depth and I feel is worth sharing, then I will. I must warn you though, I also have nightmares and they can be quite graphic and disturbing. I am not sure they would be shareable, but I suppose that depends on what you want to read. So, let me know how you feel about that.

There is one dream I had in either 2014 or 2015 which was intense. It played out like a movie and I was the lead role. I was me, but it was not me. If that makes sense? This dream led to a book idea, which I have been playing with for at least 3 years. I go back and forth to it, because sometimes I think it is too big of a story for me to take on and I doubt my capability to write it. Maybe in the future it will be something, as the dream still lingers in my memory.

I did used to journal my dreams, but the book I wrote in before doesn’t seem to have made it with me to Sweden, which is a shame. So now to start anew.

Until next time, I hope you have a great day.

  1. I don’t think there would be anything wrong with sharing nightmares regardless of the goriness of it. There could be something in the details someone might be able to spot that could help you down the line. =)

    Also, loving the new design that you’re rolling with! I think it works very well. Nice and clean.

    1. That is a good point. It could be worth it in that case. Thanks for the feedback, I wasn’t sure, but I quite like the clean cut look. I wish I knew how to use CSS, because I wanted to darken the white just a little. I am going to have to take a little look and teach myself how to do it. 🙂

  2. You’ve got this! ❤ I rarely dream. But when I do, it is like I lived it. Never a movie. Always a message. And they're rarely wrong. The recurring ones are awful. Because I know it's only a matter of when will it happen with me. Though I know I can choose actions in my life that will prevent it. So I try to. Every single day.

  3. I don’t remember my dreams often, just snippets. I find it weird when a dream I had from the night before randomly pops into my head in the afternoon.

  4. Oh i’ve thought several times about keeping a dream diary but never pursued it ! I do have the weirdest dream but I will only remember them for about 5 to 10 minutes if I don’t tell them to someone or write them down right away. I also have a lot of reoccurring nightmares and I think sharing them might be a good idea, thank you so much for this article ahah !

  5. I firmly believe that I do dream, and I remember many of my dreams vividly. I like the idea of a dream journal or diary, so I think I’m going to get a notebook and do just that. I just hope I can read my writing the next day, haha!

  6. I too, have recurring nightmares. I bought a journal at the advice of a friend, and I have kept it since. I love it! I have so many ideas for books! Ever since I started writing my nightmares down they have become a lot less frequent, but they do still happen from time to time. I hope writing helps keep yours at bay as well.

  7. I’ve had story ideas inspired by dreams too. I’ve also had some so real they’ve lingered with me. There are some I’ll never forget that were like watching a movie. Dreams are great. If you can record them do so. You can also search for meanings behind dreams – very interesting.

      1. I used to and found that often the meanings behind things did have some kind of link to what was going on but not always -it would be that odd thing that made no sense like a house full of frogs. It’s interesting to look up, like specialised horoscope 🙂

      2. Googled it – means the passing of time or your ability to manage your time. Winning a watch & already have one sounds good – probably means your managing your time well and got extra time 🙂
