Now that you have a dream journal and are recording your dreams, it is important to be able to find a particular dream. The easiest way to do this is by giving your dreams a title. There is an art to writing dream titles and I’ll show you how.
What we’re really talking about here is a title that will distinguish this dream from any other dream. You want it to be like reading a headline in a newspaper. From this title, you want to get a sense of the content of the dream.
The most common mistake people make in giving their dreams a title is not including enough information. For instance, if you dream of flying on a regular basis, you don’t want to name the dream, “Flying”. You want to be able to distinguish one flying dream from another. A better example would be, “Flying over the Empire State Building”.
I also recommend listing all the titles on the last page of your journal. Having this little index will be helpful as you accumulate multiple journals and want to refer back to dreams at a future date.
There will be times when an old dream has particular relevance to your current circumstances. The experience of locating that dream will be much easier if you have taken the time to give the dream a title.
Once you get the hang of it, giving your dreams titles will really enhance your dream work experience.
