quote:As data is read from the hard disk, DRIVECRYPT automatically decrypts the data before it is loaded into memory. When data is written back to the hard disk, it is automatically re-encrypted. The encryption/ decryption process is completely transparent to the user or any application program -the data is caught "on the fly" as it transfers back and forth between the hard disk and memory. Consequently, users don't need to remember to decrypt or re-encrypt their data, or change the normal operation of the PC. In addition, only individual files are decrypted at any one time, not the whole hard disk.
Quote from: Reemy on June 09, 2004, 07:01:03My dream journal is absolutely critical. It helps in more ways than I can probably cover in this post. First, it really does improve dream recall. When you tell your self that your dreams are important enough to be written down every day, your mind seems more willing to hold onto the dreams. I probably had 10% or less dream recall before journaling. Now I would say it's at least 90%. I have several dreams to record almost every morning--sometimes 5 or 6 pages worth.Secondly, I think if one is serious about dream activity, lucid dreaming, OBEs, etc. then writing it down just makes sense. I know I'd never be able to remember all of the subtleties of those experiences otherwise. It makes it easier to go back and see important patterns as well. I can see improvement and setbacks early on. It makes it easy to notice if a new technique that I'm employing is really making a difference. I would have never noticed some really important, but subtle, dream patterns if it had not been for my journal.Also, I think journaling helps program our subconscious. We're reinforcing the dream imagery by writing it down. If you're interested in lucid dreaming that's important--especially if you use dream signs as a trigger for lucidity. I've had many more lucid dreams since starting my journal.For me it's not just the journal. I have my journal, and eventually all my dreams, OBEs, and even important meditation notes are transcribed there, but I don't start by writing it all there. By my bed there is a note pad and pen, sometimes I reach for that and start writing while I'm still half asleep--it's barely legible, but I just need to get some quick notes out before I lose the images. I also keep a tape recorder by the bed. If I can't bring myself to write, that's the best--that's also good because I can use it while still lying in bed with my eyes closed--and that's the best state for dream recall. If a dream is really vivid and lengthy I may go to the computer to type it out. I can type faster than I can write so it helps sometimes. Eventually all of those sources get copied over to my journal later.I can't recommend it enough. Admittedly I'm obsessed with my dream journal but, honestly, it's just so extremely valuable to me and a really important part of the progress I've made. Namaste,Reemy
Quote from: orian on September 04, 2023, 08:19:42Sorry for reviving am old thread, but regarding dream journals helping you to recall lucid dreams, I thought the whole point of a lucid dream was that it was lucid and experienced while you are dreaming it, and not just a vague memory that you write in a journal.
Quote from: orian on September 04, 2023, 11:35:10The thing is though, that if you can only experience a lucid dream after the fact, so to speak, and not while it is happening, what is the point of it? For example, in the waking fully conscious state, we don't need to be aware that it is going on by writing a journal the next morning. We know it fully and while we are experiencing it.
QuoteThe thrill of lucid dreaming should surely be the immediate experience of it and not a later interpretation of it from vague memories of the event.If this is all that can be expected of lucid dreaming, maybe all the time and effort needed to do it is not worth it. Anyway, no offence intended to those who do it.
