When I get existed about stuff I want to talk about them, so I told my boyfriend who became interested at once but my friends are skeptical to it or just too stupid to get it.

I don't understand why it's a shame or something, I mean all human beings sleep at night so why not use that time well.

I've talked about it with many friends at school. I would always read my books: EWLD, Lucid Dreaming, Creative Dreaming, etc. at school, and people would ask me what it is. Some people kind of knew me because of it. I would tell a friend, and they would tell their friend, and so on... The biggest problem with telling people is that some of them are lazy and like to ask you how to do it rather than look it up and practice. Maybe 1% actually give it a good try for more than a week.

Family knows because I have asked my mom to buy me lucid dreaming books. She doesn't really know much about it, but she knows I'm interested. She's funny. On very rare occasions she will tell me about a lucid dream that she thinks she had recently.

I don't talk much about my personal dreams to people. I just tell them what lucid dreaming is, and sometimes, I will help them achieve it. There are certain friends that I tell because I know that they are meant to use this gift. Other people I tell because they are curious.

I have told quite a bit of people about this interest of mine. And i've found out that at least 5 of my friends are natural lucid dreamers! That's why it's worth sharing it with people. However i always carefully choose who to tell and who not to tell, because i might be considered a weirdo. My family knows, but it's quite natural to them, because even before lucid dreaming i used to record my dreams every morning for 5 years ^^ so my family knows not to disturb me in the morning. My mom knows i'm into LDing, but she doesn't really understand the full scope of it. However she doesn't consider it strange or worthless at all.o.

My friends know for the most part, and my family is vaguely aware. I'm not worried about people thinking I'm crazy or anything because it's as simple as saying "hey, have you ever had a dream where you knew that you were dreaming?" It's really no big deal to any of them (although my wife might argue I'm a forum addict ), though many aren't that interested in pursuing it.

When I first joined the forum, my mom got upset that I was spending too much time on my "lucid dreaming" websites, and nowadays on the rather rare occasion I'll mention a bit about something I learned from a European friend or two. lach1 Some of my friends do know, and one of mine actually is lucid in most of her dreams. Most times I see her we'll end up talking about some of our interesting dreams. But then I have a few others who aren't really interested (and one who's a little worried about it and tells me to be careful). Really no relatives though.

I told my family..but they just think I'm crazy. I mentioned it to a few friends, but none of them were that interested..maybe one..and I told my two teachers about it. The first teacher made fun of me loool jokingly , and the second teacher I actually told him about it yesterday, he was very interested haha.

no body really knows that im this obsessed with LD. My parents kind of know im interested in dreams but they do not even close know to the full extent of my interest in dreams and LD. Nor do they know i keep DJ or even have an account on this website tounge2 but for me this is my passion. I just love it. I only bring it up usually when someone else brings it up. I brought it up with my frriends once but they never fully started so im alone with LD except for u guyzzzz....

My family and friends all know that I enjoy the pursuit of LD's. I've never really gotten negative responses from anyone; just general acknowledgment that it's something that I do.

I do bring up LD's in conversation whenever they are relevant, but almost everyone either loses interest quickly or just isn't interested to begin with. I don't really understand the general lack of interest, but to each their own .



Current LD goal(s): Finding a reliable flying method.

To each their own indeed. My dad knows about my interest, but since he is a natural LDer, he isn't really interested in lucidity. None of my other family know, though when I am bored I may try to analyze dreams for someone. I find that quite a few people, even if they wouldn't normally be interested, will be willing to talk if you bring it up from the correct angle.

Ive tried telling my mother of it before, but shes never understood it and still uses it as an excuse during certain arguments, since she thinks it causes sleep deprivation.
like i said, she doesnt understand it, so she thinks its bad for you and unhealthy.

Ive told a few of my friends about it, and even one of them got into lucid dreaming for a time, and still practices it on and off.

rechterduim omhoog met knipoog That's pretty cool, to be able to say you got a friend into LDing. A guy I know from another forum gave a speech on in as part of a class he was taking.
