Curious what people's experiences with journaling their dreams are? Does it help recall, effect how often you dream, effect lucid dreaming, et cetera? Do you worry about the privacy of keeping a physical journal?
I've always wanted to keep a dream journal but I worry about writing such personal stuff down where others could find and read it. Does anyone have an app or private electronic journal that works for them?
I have kept dream journals for years, on and off. To be honest, in recent years, since I decided not to bother with them, my dream recall has plummeted... I really did retain more dream material when I was focused enough to journal... I don't think i worried too much about people reading my journals... It was fairly private stuff, on occasion, but I simply tucked my journals under the bed, so that when I dreamed during the dark of night, i could sort of jot things down in the dark... Just enough to recall my dreams .. Mine were always just written in one of those recycled paper diary books
It is not easy keeping a dream journal so you have to make it as easy as you can for yourself. The best time of course is either right after you dream and wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning when its fresh in your mind. Make sure you have your journal close to you. I have kept a dream journal for a very long time because I have dreams, and then I have DREAMS..... These special dreams I had to start writing down. These dreams are from people that have past on. I call these dreams visits. This is where I have most if not all of my psychic abilities which I only have so much control over. I also try to write down the not so important dreams also. It also shows you just how many dreams you forget you've had. It's like reading someone else's journal. I just had a visit from a friend's mother and she asked me to tell him she is so very proud of him and she is thinking of him. My cousin has the same kind of dreams so we often share our dreams we have journaled especially when regarding our ancesters visits. I have a nice book to journal in but have used anything like a spiral 10 cent binder from Walmart to just a piece of paper. That is to say my journal is not well organized but the important thing is to at least keep a record of them. Another reason to keep a journal of your dreams is you can understand how the mind works. The smallest of things that happened a day or a week or a month ago will trigger a dream and you wonder, why something so small effected your sub-conscience. It's really easy to interpret many dreams and why we dream them but symbols sometime can mean different things for different people. So for me, I almost have to keep a journal because people that visit me arent' always people I know and so the message can be for the future involving me or someone I will meet. I know this sounds weird but these dreams are far too real for my to think of them as just our brains having fun while we sleep. I actualll ask the person in the dream if this just a dream or if this is really happening and they answer back yes this is really happening. I have also found that after reading the journal how many predictive dreams I have had. And yes, it is true, the more you spend time, any time just if nothing else but jotting them down, you will start dreaming and remembering your dreams more easily. So,"Happy Dreaming Everyone"!

HOLMES: what did you use,, the living the tarot book , was it a course or a self goal ?

wildrosespeonies: Self goal. I don't have time to sign up for actual card studies class even though I know many places offer them online. I use the guidebooks that come with the deck(s) for reference when I can't recall a card.

wildrosespeonies: Also, I think guidebooks are underrated. They can put more detail into the illustrations and some of them are pure poetry. (Mesquite and Pagan Otherworlds being my favorite guidebooks for that reason -- language is amazingly used)

HOLMES: a book written for the deck can be excellent if it adds , the tarot of the elves talked about the story behind the minors, one was really sad.. the hudes guidebook , and robin wood was awesome .

wildrosespeonies: Ooh, Marigold Tarot's print guidebook is finally coming along. I think I'm gonna pass on the pouch though. That box is very sturdy.

wildrosespeonies: Wow. I just discovered a tarot maker on kickstarter who blantantly stole another tarot maker's art. (The art is the art back of Sinking Wasteland.) I have let SW creator know. But wow! Can't believe that.

wildrosespeonies: The artist contacted the KS tarot card maker and they replaced the image, but I'm pretty sure the new image is stolen too. It looks familiar, but I don't recognize where the image come from.

auroralara: forum.tarotsphere.net The “force” behind tarot reading is always down to the reader. The “reader” being the mechanism by which tarot is interpreted is inevitably a human being or more. Humans being the creators of symbols and symbolism such as that
