JOURNAL PAGE TEMPLATE
Suggestions for recording dream content:
- Always write in first person, present tense when recording dreams.
- Establish place and action in first line – note colors, themes, emotions – what is going on with all five senses.
- Note special aspects of dream:
- Colors - Unusual, out of place, et al.
- Emotions - Pride, lust, anger, gluttony, greed, envy, sorrow, joy, love. How did you feel in the dream? When you woke up?
- Tone of dream - What couldn't you get past? What couldn't you overcome? What did you celebrate? Were you able to escape?
- Words/Numerals - Were you able to read words in dream? What did they say? How were they important to you? Did you receive a specific spoken message? Were there any "nonsense" words?
- Note details - Clothing, weather, action, place, characters, self.
- Write adjectives to describe a known person and stranger in your dream.
- Do any of these adjectives describe aspects of you?
