Bi-Weekly Dream Report: Lucid Dreams all night long, Calea Z in a bong, 10x Calea Z capsules

30 Mar

The other night I had lucid dreams all night long. Funny, as nothing seemed to particular cause this except for an uncomfortable bed. Somewhat like the Wake Back to Bed (WBTB) method for lucid dream induction, the pain in my back and shoulders kept me half-conscious throughout the night. What kills me is I know […]

  Here is Juans full and complete report from Peru. A short introduction is available here. During my one week diet with the teacher plant Ajo Sacha, I had so many lucid dreams that I was astonished. There were by far too many lucid dream experiences to journal on a daily basis, but I did […]

Here Juan introduces us to his Ajo Sacha diet in Peru. This is an intro to his full report. Currently I am studying a shamanic approach to lucid dreaming in Peru which involves working with a variety of sacred and medicinal plants which are both teachers and guides to the dreamworld.

  With the Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot has succeeded in creating a wonderful book of what I call mind candy. He pieces together an explanation for events, experiences, and phenomena that have no accepted explanation – or even an acceptance of existing – by modern science. Ironically, at base, his explanation is rooted in the […]

I got half a dozen 10x Calea Z. pills this week. The 10X means that it’s ten times as potent than the natural, un-enhanced leaf. I also got a bunch of herbs with dream properties. It’s Calea Z rounded out with 3 or 4 herbs which make it much easier to smoke than straight Calea […]

The Biological Basis of Mysticism? | A review of DMT: The Spirit Molecule by Rick Strassman

12 Mar

As you’re well aware of, I’m a geek for questions about consciousness. I love to think about issues such as understanding and defining experience, the nature of reality, the essence of the spiritual experience from both a physical and mental standpoint, and so on. So when I stumbled upon a book with the title of […]

Bi-Weekly Dream Report – Spectacular Lucid Dreams, Therapeutic Offerings, and a Revelation…

11 Mar

I feel like I’m making real progress here in attaining and understanding the nature of becoming conscious in the dream-state. I also had a “big moment” where a dream I had showed to me something I couldn’t see or understand in my waking life. Lucid Dream # 1 One of them involved the peculiar strangeness […]

Dream Question Template: A questionnaire for exploring and piecing together what your dreams are about.

8 Mar

Due to the volatile and contradictory nature of dreams, simply writing down a description often fails to truly summarize all aspects of what you’ve experienced in a dream. To help with this, I’ve been working with a series of questions that penetrate various aspects of the dream to help nail down everything going on – […]

Bi-Weekly Dream Report #3: Calea Z Mockery & Psychedelic Imagery

1 Mar

Perhaps the funniest event to note this time around is that, after conducting my latest Calea Z experiments (taking the dream herb in pills, smoking it, and drinking it as a tea) I dreamt I was at a party where someone offered me Calea Z. pills. They were about 3 or 4 inches long, and […]
