Detailed dream meaning

Writing in a journal is a cathartic release and often is represented as a way about opening up and sharing your true feelings about a person or situation. Often in life we are in situations where we have to act a certain way and can’t fully express our opinions, thoughts, or feelings. Consider where you are in your world and what you are unable to express openly. Writing in your journal in a dream is likely indicating that you have deep down repressed feelings that are beginning to bubble up. If, in your waking world, you truly cannot express your wants or desires, understand that with the emotions coming up that eventually they are going to come out in one form or another. Now is a time to consider how to express yourself or to let your thoughts and feelings out before they come out in an unhealthy manner.

Sometimes writing in a journal in a dream is a processing experience where you have feelings of guilt, resentment, or regret that you just need to get out and let go. When you are honestly expressing yourself in a journal in your dream this is a sign of healthy processing and indicates that you are in a time of growth and stability in your life.

Starting or creating a journal is the representation of starting a new chapter in your life. This is a time to let the chips lie where they land and do not try to stir up something. Create something new, clean out the closets, and get started for a new opportunity that is coming your way!

Being angry and writing in a journal and venting out frustrations is a healthy outlet as long as you are also practicing it in the waking world as well. Consider pent up frustrations and how to get them to process in a healthier manner.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Creating a new persona or changing the way you are presenting yourself
  • Starting a new chapter in your life
  • Focusing on healthy outlets for emotion
