I always thought that somehow there must be a connection with my real life experiences that translate into my dreams. I thought about this theory long and hard and back in the early 90's I began my dream journal. Every once in awhile I find it buried away somewhere in my house and as I was packing it come up again even though it resurfaced about a month ago. Everytime I come across it I like to read through it and it is amazing how just reading the dream that I had written down comes right back into mind like as if I had the dream only last night.
I did this for Months though trying to break the code of my dreams.
See the moon here on this side of the book. Well here is where at night before I go to bed I would write down what I did that day, My feelings toward certain situations and what I ate (I really think what you eat has a influence on the type of dreams you have)
