Dream Journaling has proved to be a very valuable tool in developing lucid dreaming skills. For beginning oneironauts, the dream journal starts out as a tool to help develop and improve dream recall. Recorded dreams can then be examined to find dream signs—situations, events, places, people and other elements which commonly occur in our dreams. Recognizing our dream signs is a key in achieving lucidity in our dreams.
Our dream journal forums are by far the most active part of the Mortal Mist community. Through our journals, we share our experiences and discuss what works for us and what doesn't.
The Mortal Mist journaling system is unique in offering statistical data gathering and tagging. Three different journaling forums are available, offering the choice between public accessibility with search engine indexing or private member's only access. A forum for Awake Journals offers a member's only access location to record "real life" events that may influence our dreams, recall and ability to get lucid.
