Shortly after the beginning of 2020, I began a new experiment. I started journaling my dreams. I don’t have a background in dream analysis [sounds cool], and I’m not even close to being an expert on the subject. Besides doing some research on lucid dreaming in hopes of learning more about myself, I haven’t sat down and invested as much time as I should.
I made the spontaneous decision to begin logging my dreams back in January of this year. First, I created a new file in my cellphone writer application, and titled it [Crash Report], as in [Crashed Out].
For obvious reasons, this new experiment would require me to journal each dream as soon as I open my eyes. As I’m sure you already know, most dreams tend to fade away within seconds or minutes. On the occasions when I wake up to more than one dream, I log each dream separately. Interestingly, I’ve also journaled a dream within a dream a couple of times. Yes, like [Nightmare On Elm Street]!
I don’t know why I kicked off this experiment, but I’ve learned a great deal. It seems, my dreams have distinct patterns to them. Maybe yours do as well?
