Dream Signs.

So the Dream journal has a dual-purpose. The first is to develop your ability to remember your dreams. Naturally, this skill is essential if you want to be able to Lucid dream. However, what we're also looking for when keeping the journal is a common thread throughout our dreams. A Dream Sign. Everyone has them, a person, maybe a sibling or old friend, maybe a place or object that continually crops up in your dreams, or even just a common occurence or theme in your dreams. Before even starting the Dream journal I was pretty confident my Dream sign was my brother, and based on my progress so far, it looks like I was right. I won't commit just yet until I'm certain, because the Dream signs will be important later on once we get to Reality Checks.

If you're having trouble with your journal, here's a tip. When you wake up after a dream, lie still at first and try to remember as much of the dream as you can. Diverting your attention, even just by leaning over to pick up a notepad, will cause the dream to start to slip away. Before you move, make sure you have as much of the dream as you can remember before you start to right.

The dream I had last night, by the way, was a 28 days later style zombie apocalypse happening on my street, and me and 3 strangers were desperately trying to get to my house. I got in first, and I accidentally closed and locked the door thinking everybody else was inside, trapping them out. I apparantly found this hilarious, and started looking for my brother to tell him about it, which is about the time I woke up.

Yeah, I don't know either.

So yeah, as I said, my brother shows up a lot in my dreams, but I won't move onto the next stage until I'm certain he's my Dream sign. So I'll stick with the dream journal for the next few days. If you think you know your Dream sign, comment! I've heard of some really obscure and odd ones before.

Until the next post then guys.
