How to have a shared dream.
The first option is to become skilled at lucid dreaming and at dream control. In particular you need a reliable method to find someone. It could be
opening a door and expecting to find them behind it, or using a portal to lead you to them. There are no guarantees with these methods, it's a
matter of personal skill.
And there are problems with trying to force a shared dream. Mainly if you try it with someone who doesn't remember their dreams on a regular basis,
you're pretty much wasting your time. Or even if you can't remember your dreams, it might as well have never happened.
Telling someone they are dreaming from within a dream can cause them to wake up from the shock. Most first time lucid dreamers experience this. I
like to put my arm around them and give my targets a good shake. The physical sensation helps anchor them in the dream. But when doing this with
someone who isn't an experienced lucid dreamer, it won't be long before your target gets a blank zombie like look on their face and wanders off,
distracted by something they find interesting in the dream.
Try to stick to one target at a time. Trying to herd a large group of fellow dreamers is like trying to keep a bunch of ants on a piece of paper with
Your other option is to let shared dreaming happen naturally. Start keeping an online dream journal at site like dreamviews.com, mortalmist.com.
sealifedreams.com. There are lots of them out there. But don't just stick to your dream journal, read other people's dream journals, and most
importantly, leave comments. Not are comments encouraging when keeping an online dream journal, but many of those people will feel compelled to
return the favor and start leaving comments in yours. You'll inevitably find some DJs you like more than others, that you relate to for content and
Before long, you'll find yourself in a small clique of dreamers, a group that frequents each other's DJs, and this is where things get interesting.
Coincidences and synchronicities begin to pop up you your group's dream journals. You'll find many people dreaming about the same things, topics or
themes. This is what what Linda Lane Magallon calls "Dream Meshing".
Once you reach this point, shared dreams may begin to occur naturally. You can help things along with intent, focus, and various dream incubation
Just remember that both dreamer don't necessarily have to experience the exact same thing. This always irks the hardcore skeptics, but the
similarities always outweigh the differences, which really describe the same things on an archetypal level.
Best of luck to anyone wanting to share dreams. It's an ambitious task, but so much fun.
