Experimentation with dreaming herbs

Mexican Tarragon:

 

I have 5 unruly Mexican Tarragon (tagetes lucida) plants that needed trimming so I decided to try this tea from Keys To Perception:

 

“A tablespoon of the leaves and flowers brewed in 12 ounces of hot water for five minutes will do.  Strain the mixture and drink hot or cold. Drinking this potion before psychic work will brighten and strengthen your perceptions.  Drink it three nights in a row before retiring for sleep if you are seeking prophetic dreams.” 

 

So I followed the instructions with fresh leaves, steeped it longer then ate the leaves afterward.  Did three nights in a row the first time. 

 

Night 1: rare ability to concentrate.  Experienced a “full” feeling in my head.   No pain. 

 

Night 2: drank and ate.  Got the full head feeling again.  Had a dream  I was in someone’s house, in a trance state.  Someone was explaining duality when I woke up, but still in a trance.   Hallucinated patterns like at the start of a trip when vision starts to change.  Back to sleep then a lucid dream in that space before waking up in the morning. 

 

Night 3: tea was weaker.  This was prophecy time supposedly.  Drank the tea before bed.  In twilight sleep I was asked if I would get scared.  I’m like, “I’m not scared of nuthin!”  Then it said you have to promise you won’t get scared. So I said “Okay what is it?”  That’s when I was told I would find out the manner in which I will die.  

“NO THANKS!”  Went to sleep.  

 

You know how it is to wake up in the morning and feel like a lot has happened but you don’t remember?  Whatever dreams I had were blocked out. 

 

After 3 nights I was exhausted from too much REM sleep and not enough restorative kind.  That’s the only adverse side effect I got from the tea. 

 

Then I did a 4 night bender on the tea.  In the forth night’s dream there was a man who turned into a hellhound and attacked me.  Woke up to the sound of the dog attacking my flesh; that sound you hear when dogs are fighting.  So 3 nights better than 4. 
 

Verdict: enhances dreams and encourages lucid dreaming, mild hallucinations, prophetic if receptive

I have tried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) under my pillow .

Some people  used to smoke it as a dream enhancer but I  just like the smell  of the crushedherb.

It was few years ago  when I  tried so can't  remember  exactly what happened,  but as it is growing now in the wild I will pick some later and maybe try again.

 

Article on mugwort here.

Depending where you are you can usually  find artemisia growing wild. It also grows easily from cuttings rooted in water.

And Botanical.com itself is a very interesting site.

I did a dream school training with Sergio Magana over 6 month period.

 

It's not a herb, but the main substance we used which the Toltecs used was rattle snake venom. Yeah sounds quite out there I know, but it does really work as it slows down the heart! Quite hard to get hold of outside the witches markets in central america, but i did get some powder form from the US which apparently is an alternative form of cancer treatment!

Calea Dream Herb (Calea ternifolia) (Mexican Dream Herb) (bittergrass)

 

Found a light blue and black dragonfly sitting in my Calea’s pot.  Picked it up and realized it was old and was trying to die there so put it back in.

 

Calea grows on exposed and disturbed hillsides in Mexico and Central America.  It’s one of the plants that made up the Aztec ethnogenic plant complex and is used in sacred ceremonies for divination and healing.  

 

It is revered for its ability to induce powerful, vivid, memorable, and sometimes prophetic dreams. 

 

A tea is made of crushed, dried leaves and used as a hallucinogen.  After drinking the tea more dried leaves are smoked.  

 

Made 10 oz of tea with 20 grams of dried leaves and put the rest in a clean bowl and smoked it. 

 

Ugh the tea tasted horrible!  Igh.  
 

About 2/3 of the way down the cup an intense relaxation set in.  

 

Smoking the bowl wasn’t necessary, just mild.  A little harsh on the throat, but burns better than dirt weed.

 

Then I ate half of the leaves in the strainer godawful! 

 

Tried to read after this but it knocked me out.  Once in my blood it delivered peacefulness in sleep.   Just a little lucidity, mostly good rest.  The intentions and requests set beforehand were fulfilled.  Felt like a million bucks upon waking. 

 

Maybe will try the three day in a row thing with it in the future.

Mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris

 

Use a handful of dry and fresh leaves in hot water, more if you have it.  Steep for a half hour.  Tastes earthy, very tolerable.

 

Mugwort has thin, fragile, little leaves.  When they dry they’re like the tissue paper you stuff in a gift bag when you can’t wrap.  
 

A mugwort dream has the consistency of that paper: lots of pretty colors.  If you dream of a dragon like I did, it will be a paper dragon that is hardly menacing.  You will likely see colorful patterns if you wake up in the night, and, if you are not on anything else, you can tell when it kicks in and when it’s done.  The next day you may drag ass just a little, and require a nap in the evening. 
 

Mugwort would probably work well in a dreaming herb concoction.
