Hey, woodcutters!

It’s my second post on the dreams and their journaling. I will today be discussing the beautiful adventures and benefits of keeping a dream journal along with some of the historical examples from the past which later became the greatest inventions.


I guess you have already visited my last post on best dream diaries, where I have discussed the dream journal introduction, some great ways to start your own dream journal and the benefits of keeping one in short.

It will be a real fun, adventure and of a great use to discuss the benefits of dream diaries in detail.

Why Should I keep a Dream Journal

You will be happy (or even shocked) to know that it’s not new to keep a dream journal. In fact, people from so many ancient civilizations have found to study dreams and their interpretation.

It’s your own adventurous journey. You will find demons, God, death, life, happiness, pain, pleasure, love and so much more. It’s all up to you and your own wonderland.

The author of the book “Power of Your Subconscious mind” Dr. Joseph Murphy says that “The real potential of you is locked inside your subconscious brain, it’s a treasure house!

Your dream diary will help you to find the secret signals of your unconscious brain as the study says, 70% of the dreams you see have some meanings.

For example, the death is a symbol of transformation. There is something great which is going to happen or happening in your life if you are seeing you dying in your dream (however, you will never die in the dream, hahaha?)
