It can be tempting when we wake up with a nice clear memory of our dream from the night before to take our time in writing it down. When our dreams seem so sure in our mind, it is easy to forget how quickly they can dissolve in the light of day. By having a bit of discipline and writing down our dreams as soon as we are able, preferably as soon as we wake up, we are far more likely to capture the essence of our dreams while it still fresh in our minds. If there isn’t much time to write first thing, try just writing a few key symbols or strong emotions. You can always come back an update the details later, but even better is to write as much detail as we can in the first place.
Dreams seem to be like ice cream, they just melt away in the sunshine! So capturing them when we have that precious opportunity is vital.
