I try to record all of my dreams, but sometimes it does get difficult because a lot of them are replays or alterations of traumatic experiences. Those very dreams are in fact one of the main reasons I'm pursuing lucidity. So the way I get myself to record them is to remind myself that writing them down is a necessary step in becoming lucid - and each time I preserve one in my journal, I'm one step closer to not having them anymore.

Nice...Both mundane and significant? Is there never a dull moment..?

I think you may find that recording your dreams (even though you remember them), will cause even more dreams to occur! You are basically telling your mind that dreams are important, thus you dream more.

Yea something along these lines. Sometimes whenever I'm going through something in IRL, dreams in general don't seem as important, and I usually notice a significant drop in recall unless I'm having a series of intense or significant dreams. I tend to forget the mundane and remember the significant ones. We're also wired differently so it may vary...We are strange beings... .-.

When it comes to recording I usually record the good, the bad, and the ugly with a few exceptions. Had a few uncut V1 instances... Now the sexual detail I either label personal, vague, or cut out. Vicious moments I usually record, but a few only to some extent. Dreams or parts of them I don't want to remember I somehow tend to remember anyway in most cases.

Not always record the disturbing dreams, usually the "normal ones". I have a few records with really frightening dreamscenes but I try to focus on the major elements of the dream rather than recording the full scene with great details.

I only use keywords, some sentences and a very few sketches that help me to remember what happened in them (I'm a very visual person).

It all depend on your decision; but I think it'll help identify something unusual. wink5
