Lucid dreaming sadly is not that known to the media. I dont really know about it, someone else will probably post a bit more about it.

Although it HAS been in the media A FEW times.

Just some people don't give a care about LD. If you tell someone about it they might think your just retarded. People in general just don't really care about it I think.

How credible will a magazine sound if they start talking about dreams and how you can control them?... Exactly.

It is simply because LD-ing is so difficult to achieve for the common person (Which basically means, everyone who is not a natural and isn't very spiritual) So, just like most people won't ever walk to their holy sites, but some will, So is lucid dreaming.

I have seen twice that a special addition to a newspaper included info about Lucid dreaming, and dreaming. It was a quite famous newspaper, so you may take into acount that many know that Lucid dreaming exist, yet they think (And this is the most important reason for unpopularity of LDs) That LD-ing is just for naturals, scycophants, people who seek inner enlightment, gamers and just freaks of LDs.

If you could make someone have a lucid dream as easy as turning on the television (Don't mind the learning curve of how-to-fly; Only the ability to lucid dream) And, in the same time, you will have renowned, or just plain people who are "proffesionals" speak over the media of it, it will be quite much known.

I've seen programs about Lucid Dreaming. pasQuale was even interviewed about it for a paper/magazine a while back. I also remember someone posting an mp3 file of an interview, not sure if it came from a radio or tv interview though.

You can find it if you know where to look.

I believe Reader's Digest (an extremely popular American magazine) had a cover story on LDing and dreams in general. Just like Twilight Dreamer's example though, the magazine made it sound as though you could only LD if you were a natural, or if you bought the expensive Nova Dreamer.

What really shocked me was that this magazine is meant to be for the general American population. Pretty amazing that their cover story was about dreams/LDs.

Norway's most known science magazine had an big article abut LDing some years back.
I think they even listed this site as an reference.
I've also seen it mentioned once in an non-LD book.

If it got a big notice in an popular media I think lots of people wouldn't want to believe it, and some over-conservative Christians would probably say LDing is an sin, or goes against God or something, and start black-mailing, and complaining to, that media.

LDing is just one of those things that the general public doesn't like talking abut.

I have asked another Christian about LDing and asked if it is bad or good, they said that it was like a cult and shouldn't be practiced. The public is just too arrogant.

Lucid dreaming has been mentioned in Norway's biggest popular science magazine, and one of our biggest national newspapers. It is often just given a footnote in articles about dream interpretation and sleep science, but the newspaper article covered two pages.

At least in my country the subject of ld'ing has never been talked(in any media), moreover, i've asked a lot of people(Friends,classmates,family) and they have a slight idea of what might be but have never got into it.
So take Lucid Dreaming as an 'underground cult'...not bad though.

I'm a Christian and I think LDing is awesome! grin However, my family... at first they thought it was ok but now they think it's "interfering with my relationship with God." overspannen Whatever. It's not.

I know it's not a sin or anything bad. I'm just saying what those people said to me.
