Dream Journals are one of the number one tips in recalling your dreams and understanding their meanings.

This is the first step to being able to use your dreams the way you want, as in having lucid dreams and OBE's. You can't analyze what you cannot remember, makes sense, right?

Some people are put off by writing on paper, as we have become such a digital world. Not to worry... there is always this option.

I can tell myself to wake up when I've had a dream (say it aloud before going to sleep). Then I write down short details when I wake up. The next morning, by looking at what I wrote, I will recall my dreams.

There is another technique I use sometimes when I am stumped on a dreams meaning.
It's something I learned in a creative writing class.

Hmm, this is going to be hard to explain without a visual, so put your imagination caps on.

When you are thinking about the dream.. think of the main subject, object, etc.. that stands out the most. Say it was a spaceship.

Then write the word spaceship in the middle of a peice of paper, and circle it.

Then draw a straight line from the circle to another facet of your dream. Let's say, you saw the color green alot. So then you have "spaceship" circled, with a line going to the word, "green". Now circle that word.

Do this all the way around your original word of "spaceship".

Looking at your first circle of 'added' words coming off the spaceship word, you may start to get an idea, or see a theme.
You can use feelings as words also, it doesn't have to just be a noun.

Then once you have that outer circle around the spaceship word, begin to take each other circled word, and make a line from them, thinking of WHAT THAT WORD MEANS TO YOU PERSONALLY.

So, remember one of the words was green?
Ok, draw a line from the word green, and write a 'feeling' word of what green means to you.
Do this all the way around.

Once you have all your feeling words, you will probably be amazed at how much further your understanding of your own dream has become!
It's also fun. I encourage everyone to try it at least once.
