Dream Logs

Does anybody keep a dream log? I've just recently started. I promised a girl I would start, but I don't know why she would want me to. I don't see that it has much benefit. I've never believed that dreams mean anything. I see them as just random collections of images and ideas your subconscious mind pulls together in a nonsense way, and it doesn't actually mean anything. I only have a few entries so far. She will text or call me in the middle of the night to interrupt my dream since you retain it better that way, and I'll write about whatever it was I was dreaming about. I write it in greentext format (with a green pen, naturally) because it's easier to spit out ideas that way, rather than trying to form complete sentences and ideas when I'm barely conscious.

Now some music. Some dope dubstep from Camo, pretty sick.

Also since I'm writing about the girl, Beauty School by Deftones. We kissed for the first time listening to this.

writing in greentext seems like a great way to summarize your dreams, nice thinking! I think dreams have some meaning, but not to be overrated. Since it's our minds that determine what we dream it's an "unbiased" way to see what the brain believes extra important

That's clever, the middle-of-the-night phone call thing. It makes perfect sense.

Wouldn't having access to random bits of your subconscious be interesting to you?

I've had a dream log for about a year now, and I use it for lucid dreaming. You should Google it. ;)

I had a dream log for a while too and like Angus I was using it to try and simulate lucid dreaming. It never really worked out but reading over your dreams can certainly tell you a lot about how your mind works.

Nice blog regardless buddy. I'm now following you for more interesting posts. Keep up the good work!

DWei said...

I don't but maybe I should.

Or not, my dreams are pretty boring.

Never had a dream log, however, I'm sure it has some usefulness if you put your mind in to it.

Here's a nice times article covering dreams interpretation.
