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 I had conscious dreams throughout the night but I only vividly remember 2 dreams!

I’ve also acquired a nice glass bong for the sole purpose (really!) of smoking calea Z and other dream herb concoctions of my shaman shop.

Without a doubt, taking bong hits of Calea Z is the way to go! The water – especially ice water – really takes away the harshness of calea z smoke. I can’t imagine now ever making the tea. It’s also much easier to smoke larger amounts with a bong than a bowl or a joint.

For me personally, the jury is still out on the effective use of dream herb for lucid dream induction. I enjoy smoking it though and it’ll be fun just sticking to it to see what develops. I have had a lot of intense dreams lately while smoking Calea Z and other dream-inducing herbs mixed together.

Oh! I almost forgot! I boughtseven 10X Calea Z capsules and took them 2 different nights. The 10X means it’s 10 x as strong as the usual dose. Amazingly it went through me to no effect. I’m beginning to think there’s something to the rumor that Calea Zacatechichi builds up in the body through repeated use.

    I used ice water in a bong when I smoked salvia. Speaking of which, that sounds like a fun thing to do this weekend.

    You’re becoming a modern day Carlos Castaneda. I’m enjoying reading your progress.

    Haha, he’s getting close to where Carlos was in the middle of the first book. When he’s meeting allies on the side of the road in Mexico’s Deserts I’ll call him Castaneda.

    I’m starting to regret my decision to donate my copy of The Art of Dreaming to the local bookstore without ever having read the book!

    The Art of Dreaming had its moments, but it still doesn’t come close to his first 4 books.

    Zataod, what would you say is the best book to start with? The truth is I gave away The Art of Dreaming because it was just way too new age-ish for me.

    I know that wasn’t directed at me, but being a fan of Castaneda, I can’t help but say that the Teachings of Don Juan, a Yaqui way of knowledge is the best to start with. That’s when Carlos first meets Don Juan, and starts experimenting with Peyote, the little smoke. It’s also a good lead in the the more “far out” books like the Art of Dreaming. Which was the craziest book I’ve read by him.

    Thanks Hatter! Hopefully I can make time to read it in the next month or two.

    The Teachings of Don Juan, a Yaqui way of knowledge is an excellent book! That is the book that I started off with, too.

    I just posted about an article which pretty well reveals Castaneda as a con man.

  12. Kevin April 17, 2007 at 9:34 pm #

    Carlos is not a con man pre-say, he is unethical and his morals are questionable but his experiences are real, just not like like he says they happend. I know because I have met him and people he has met. Don Juan is not one person, but a colaboration of almost 10-11 difrent people he met and spoke too, some of them where female and in some cases he introduces the same person as 2 or three difrent people. SOME of them where Yaqui some where not. The tradtion he presents is very, very real, the art of dreaming is a good book and lucid dreamers should take notes, he does however leave large holes bewteen information, that just needs to be said. Its still very workable. I think what he doesn’t stress that if you meet someone in this tradtion that knows is that when you begin to lucid dream you are not just acting in your dreams without consequence, you are acting with who and what you have had agreements with and can strongly begin to effect your physical body and events surrounding you, just so you know….Iam not trying to preach. Please excuse any typos, I am not a strong speller and my spell check isn’t working 😛

    I know I’m jumping in on the tail end of this a year later and no one will probably read this. But if someone does read this I’d just like to add my 2 cents on The Art of the Dreaming. It was the first Castaneda book I read and I found it in a library and checked it out without knowing what it was. The title just appealed to me. While reading that book I had my first lucid dream. At the time I didn’t really believe in them, half believing them an invention of the author. I believe that it was my teenage energy and my fervent teenage desire to experience that got me there. But it wouldn’t have happened without that book. So, yes I have a bias, but I love The Art of Dreaming.
