From Gratitude Journal to Dream Journal
Listening to Oprah Winfrey, the queen of talk shows, on her show on
July 3, 2000, as she discussed the importance of keeping gratitude
journal, made me think twice about my dream journal. Some of the
guests read and shared their journal entries with the audience. John
Edwards has also emphasized the importance of keeping journals
as one of the ways to develop our intuitive abilities. John Edwards
has appeared on several national TV shows including The Oprah
Winfrey Show, and The Jane Pauley Show to mention but a few.
Dreams with Special Themes
First of all, it is normal to have dreams and normal also for some people
to keep a dream journal. In this book, I will be sharing some of my
dream experiences which include flying. I have flown over buildings,
crowds of people, and forests, etc. The flying dream experience is
amazing; I often have flying dreams consecutively, night after night. The
feeling, at times, is comparable to altered states. I have flown once or
twice with my sisters, other times I fly solo. Each time I fly, the feeling
seems to be the same; it is the kind of feeling you would like to get all the
time and never want to stop. I have also heard my first name called out
loud by someone in a crowd.
In my dreams, I have also listened to highly sophisticated and subtle
musical compositions. Some of my dreams involve numbers, algebraic
expressions embedded in elementary and advanced mathematics. My
grammar has once been corrected in one of my dreams. Each dream
starts with a title and the date it occurred.
Writing Down Your Dreams
Writing down your dreams takes a lot of discipline and willpower. If you
remember the full details of your dream, write it down; do not trust your
memory. It could be just a word or a sentence. Write it down. Review
your dreams periodically in order to check for correspondence.
