Dreams can give us insight into what’s going on in our subconscious. But they can also be portals where we can receive psychic information or connect with our loved ones on the other side. However, I’ve recently heard of a technique where you can have shared dreams with a loved one. You can literally use your dreams as a playground with another person. In other words, both of you can experience the same dream together.
I was reading So You Want to be a Psychic Intuitive by Alexandra Chauran when I came across the concept. In a chapter about Dreams, she describes how not only can we have precognitive experiences when we’re dreaming (where we dream about something that has not happened yet), but we can set the intention to visit with someone in a dream and experience the dreamworld together.
(If you’re wondering what to do if you’ve had a precognitive dream, click here.)
Think of how this can be useful in real life:
- If you’re in the midst of a family challenge, you and another family member can dream together in search of a solution.
- Say you are becoming closer to a romantic partner. You and that person can become even more connected by sharing a dream experience.
- Maybe you’re working on a group project at work or for some other important endeavor; members of the group can dream together to further the creative planning for the project.
Shared dreams can be a form of telepathy
Having a shared dream with someone is a form of telepathy. It’s a way in which we can communicate with someone without sharing actual words. If the idea sounds interesting to you, here’s how to try it.

You both must be of like mind. First of all in order for you to successfully invite someone into your dreams, they have to want to be there. They have to believe it is possible and they have to be willing to try this form of psychic exploration. If the person you want to invite is going to laugh at you or think you are crazy, you may feel deflated about your psychic beliefs and end up stunting your own psychic evolution.
You both must agree on the purpose of the exercise. Figure out what you want to get out of the experience. Are you looking for the solution to a problem? Are you simply looking to bond or do you want to learn more about your psychic ability. If you are both on the same accord, your intentions are in alignment, which makes the energy between the two of you more faborable for success.
You’ve got to trust the person. Use some common sense here. Just as you wouldn’t want to go to sleep physically around someone you don’t trust, you don’t want to invite someone you don’t trust to enter your private dreamspace with you.
Coordinate the time you go to sleep. If it’s possible, try to go to sleep at the same time as the person you hope to share a dream with. If the two of you are in different time zones, perhaps one of you can take a nap while the other person has settled down to sleep for the night.
Record any dreams the moment you wake up. For this exercise it’s importnat that both of you record anything you remember from your dreams. It might be a small detail that both of you recall that offers proof that you did, in fact, have a shared dream. For example, the two of you might both remember the appearance of a small animal such as rabbit in the dream. Or perhaps you both have reached a similar conclusion about the underlying message of a dream. It’s easy to forget your dreams so either have a dream journal or a small recorder near your bedside, which you can use to capture the information you’re bringing back from the dream.
Share your results. This step may be easier said than done. You have to be willing to be honest with the other person about what you dreamed. If your dream was embarrassing or contained elements you’re not comfortable sharing, you may hold back. Then you may miss out on recognizing that the two of you shared this experience. This is another reason why it is very important to only do this exercise with someone you trust.
Be willing to try more than once. It may take a few times for the two of you to see results. You may even become so comfortable over time that you decide to explore lucid dreaming together.
