Man, I have the most vivid dreams. I know, I know, a lot of people say they don’t remember their dreams, which I get. Maybe I have sleep apnea and never get deep enough to forget my dreams, I don’t know. I will say this, I have mined my dreams for book and business ideas, as well as used them to make improvements in my life.
The key is to wake up and record what your dreams were telling you as soon as you rise. Waiting even a few minutes could mean you’ll forget the gist (and the details) of the message. Many a morning I slog downstairs and log a good idea that came to me while I slept.
I often interact with my late father in my dreams, which is both comforting and disconcerting at the same time. I do pay special attention to those dreams because I feel there’s something important in them.
If you say, “I never remember my dreams,” guess what? You won’t. Start saying to yourself (and others) that you DO remember your dreams and put a pad of paper and pencil by your bedside so you can jot down what you remember. Not every dream has a purpose, but every once in a while you will have one that does. Take it seriously.
