Sorry to hear that mia.
Maybe you need to be a bit more discerning to work out who is okay to tell and who isnt. It certainly isnt something we can tell everyone.
It made me wonder why some people take the concept so well and display an interest while others show fear. It could be a number of things from the recipient's beliefs about dreams and world-views to the informant's manner of explaining what lucid dreaming entails.
Perhaps I was too intense on some occasions of explaining what it means to be aware of dreaming and what is achievable. Some people, for example, found the idea of a splendorous hyperreal quality in mental environments a frightening concept.

Good point. In which case we should explain to them that lucid dreaming can tackle nightmares and fears in general. I think it is a good idea to highlight the therapeutic potential of lucid dreaming.

Some people are scared shitless of the idea that dreams can be realer than real.
