quote:Originally posted by MajorTomYes, I think that's a good idea. I remember when I started a dream jorunal in the past, my dreams soon took on epic proporitions, and each took me like 1 hour to write down . That's simply not feasible during the day, let alone at night.As long as you spend some time on it each day, and maybe leave out the less interesting one's due to time considerations, it will continue to be fun. However, best to write down all the dreams with key words, and only later decide which one's to elaborate on, since that waking mind can't be trusted at night . It just wants oblivion and pass out.
quote:Originally posted by MajorTomGood one. It should go quick.Recall gets easier after a while.Dreams definately have a tendecy to repeat, or follow the same theme and symbols. I would say that 75% of my dreams are reoccuring dreams with a different angle, and since I'm focused on OBE's right now, about 50% of them are about OBE's.Here's a little entry of last night:4/26/2004 Monday 6:00amA storm coming through the chimneyKeywords: living room, chimney, barricaded, powerful wind going out, powerful wind coming back, the wind brought several circled wooden objects. Experience: I was in the house of my parents, but not anything like they ever lived in reality. I had the feeling it was on an upper floor. It was more like an apartment than a house. There was a storm outside. Part of the wall where the chimney used to be had been barricaded. Not a good barricade. The cement was still wet and the stones were like rubble. I removed the stones. There was a great suction, and a lot of wind past through the chimney. A very powerful 'unnatural' movement.I got a sense of what was outside. A huge storm was outside, and my location became clearer. It was my parents bedroom in their second house arranged as a living space. Next, after the suction had completed, there was a counter movement (like correcting the unbalance) and a huge powerful wind came through the chimney in the living room. It brough some pieces of rubble from outside with it.I looked at it, and it turned to be a couple of small wooden decorative circle shaped objects. Later in the dream they started to look like cup holders.Category: DreamSetting: Living room, parents bedroomPlayers: Myself, parents in backgroundSymbols: wind through chimney = leaving and reentering the body; circle shaped objects = undetermined.Comments and guesses: If the wind indeed represents leaving the body, it seems the wind returned something of value. It wasn't clear to me what the use was of the circled objects, but they remind of the circled objects I once had in my hands unepectedly while OBE. They were magcal weapons meant to be thrown at negative influences while OBE. Major Tom
quote:Originally posted by MajorTomThe short description are mainly a matter of recall. I only restarted my journal a week ago after a long lapse, and it's all I remember for now of each dream the next day.However, it's plenty already I will probably continue doing it in synopsis form. Each entry takes like 20 mintes to write down, and last night I had 5 entries, which adds up to 1:40 hrs working on the journal. Of course, the more the better, and the more detail the better, but I simply got some real life restrictions as well as keeping the journal fun and being able to keep it in the long run.Once my recall gets better I'll wrtie out the most importan dreams in detail, whereas I will drop others completly which I'm doign already. Although I still remeber the keywords at nigth.At the moment, I'm memorizing key words each time I wake up after a dream. I would write them down otherwse, but I don't want to wake up my wife with turning on the lights. I ordered some lightpens, at which point I no longer have to memroize in the middle of the night, but can just write down key words.
quote:Originally posted by MajorTomHi Gravity. Don't mind Tom The forgetting can be a nuisence, but it's important to still write down whast you remember. Even if it's just a little bit.Before getting up, it sometimes helps to go over the dream in your mind, and memorize the most important aspects.Also, there are of course some other fractors. Last night, I only remembered one very small fragments, as opposed to 6 dreams the previous night for the simple reason of being tired.
quote:Originally posted by MajorTomGravity, here's aother one of last nigth where the dream'explains' itself within the dreams. But starngely, I'm even less sure about this ones symbology. I'll find out eventually. As you can see, I've been busy dreaming aout OBE's last night, as was my intent, which usually provides a good guide as ow to interpret them.4/26/2004 Monday 5:00amOld city and OBEKeywords: tram/train, old city from past, a point was made in the dream, easier to find one's way in the older cities, not as easy to get lost, more road signs, and to go for those cities as if I had choice. Experience: I found myself in an old train or tram. It could have around the turn of 19th century or early 20th century (were there trams back then?). A point was made in the dream, namely that to as easier to find one's way in the older cities while OBE. Not as easy to get lost, since cites were smaller with more road signs. I should go for those cities if I had a choice. Category: DreamSetting: City from pastPlayers: MyselfSymbols: Tram/train = Travel/OBE navigationComments and guesses: Not sure what the old city represents. Maybe an encouragement to keep things simple while OBE, and do things the old fashioned way.
