For those of you who have lurked DV I am Man of Shred from that forum. About 6[/b] years ago, Me and a couple other dreamers absolutely rocked the forum there with a shared dream journal with quite a few entries. While some of my friends have their own tutorials I am going to post my own.
Why most forums fail to achieve shared dreaming success
- Too many skeptics - What is the point of having a shared dream if most of the people in your group refuse to believe it themselves?
I once was friends with PJ who use to help run the mortal mist website. I gave him directions for control in a dream. In the dream he opened a portal trying to find his shared dreaming target. after a long try he was finally able to open one, on his way through he was looking into an outdoor cafe and saw his friend (target) sitting there sipping coffee. He awoke from the dream early and checked with his friends dream journal and was astonished to find that his friend had indeed had a dream about being in an out door cafe enjoying some coffee. His friend however refused to acknowledge it was a shared dream because of scientific skepticism.
Having too many people in a shared dream group. - A shared dreaming group or party must start with 2-4 dreamers at the most. Too many dreamers with too many goals will make the dream spaces more chaotic and less things will sync up. The total number of people I have had a shared dream with in one night was about 3 people. 3 of the dreamers me included remembered being in a school with a large glass dome. One dreamer was from Mexico and was talking to a female dreamer about the Mexican guy being the new student, in both versions of their dreams. All 3 dreams involved students suddenly rioting, 2 of them remember students smashing the big glass dome.
One single dreamscape as a goal: While some shared dreaming has been a success with this method. Think for a moment how hard to achieve this actually is. This requires at least 2 dreamers who are very advanced in lucid capabilities. Both dreamers MUST be lucid practically nightly, and both MUST be able to either WILD right into the dreamscape. The other method is a DILD and then the dreamers must change the dreamscape to fit the location. Even advanced dreamers still struggle nightly with trying to teleport to a specific location.
In the next post I will address how to do shared dreaming successfully and deal with some of these problems.
