Write It Down
Well, class, this is where we start our dream school. Get out a pencil and paper, put it beside your bed, and when you have a dream, write it down. This is where it all starts. You will certainly not progress very far in dream interpretation until this basic discipline is established and working in your life.It sounds like a simple step, but in reality, you will probably find it to be rather difficult. The first and most primary reason is because you will be tired. When you begin to take your dreams seriously, you will find yourself waking up at 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the morning with a dream fresh on your mind. Your natural inclination will be to want to go right back to sleep, but be assured, dreams are vapor messages written on fog, and if you don't write it down the moment you wake up, the chances are very slim indeed that you will remember the dream later during the day. So write it down! There is plenty of Biblical examples for this: after all, every dream you read in the Bible is because someone wrote it down!
The next logical step to dream interpretation is type it out. If you don't know how to type, then don't worry about it. Writing it out will be good enough. But I speak this from personal experience: I have found that my handwriting is so bad, that even though I have written out over three hundred dreams, I am reluctant to go back and reread them, since I can't stand to plow through my own writing! But by typing them I not only reinforce the message of the dream by this second process of retranscribing them, but they are now in a professional form that is a pleasure to read rather than a chore. So if you can, I recommend the extra effort of typing out your dreams --at least the ones that seem the most important.
