PAUL LENDA: “How to Maintain Awareness Even While You Are Sleeping”

Ascension Avatar

“Mindfulness doesn’t have to end when you go to sleep. You eventually reach a moment when you don’t seem to be sleeping at all. Your body will still rest and rejuvenate, but your mind will remain aware.”

~Paul Lenda

You probably know how helpful, and even crucial, mindfulness is to a balanced, calm, and fulfilling life.

Far beyond just something you do while sitting in lotus position with your eyes closed, mindfulness can also be done standing, walking, and lying down. You may not even get the inner calm and visionary insight you would expect from sitting in a traditional meditation posture.

It’s not practical to sit in meditation for more than a few hours a day. What do we do then, in order to stay in conscious awareness of our thoughts? You bring that mindfulness into everything you do during your waking state: mindful eating, mindful drinking, mindful driving…

SUE MAISANO: “How To Daydream and Achieve Your Goals”

Ascension Avatar

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

~Albert Einstein

Daydreaming is like meditation or hypnosis except for that it is more effortless and natural. Done properly, daydreaming can be very effective in helping us achieve our goals.

Your mind and body already know how to get into the zone of daydreaming because you had been doing it unconsciously all the time.

Perhaps when you are driving, the lengthy, repetitive and boring activity sends your mind to a space of peacefulness, or what seems like to be void and silent. With this quieting of the mind, you wander away from daily mundane and goes on a mental exploration. In other words, you started to daydream.

Everybody daydreams, it is human nature.

I had a daydream 15 years ago.

How could I remember a random daydream that long ago you ask? Well, the daydream I had…

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “5 Tools You Need To Make Your Dreams Come True — Despite Having A Strong Will”

Ascension Avatar

Ascension Avatar note: You may take this as haughty, but I always get what I want in life… always have. I don’t ‘do’ anything except KNOW how it’s going to be… and that’s that! 

.   .   .

We all know that in order to make your dreams come true the essential, necessary ingredient is a strong will. But it’s not that simple after all. It’s not just will that you need, and you can’t make your dreams come true just by thinking about them.

If making your dreams come true was that easy, everybody would have been living their dream by now.

To have a dream and a strong will is the easy part but moving forward is where the go getters rise above the ‘dreamers’.

Even if you have all the talents and all the predispositions you need it’s not a clear way to fulfilling your dreams…

JAMES HALLAHAN: “Dream Manipulation”

Ascension Avatar

As the first consideration, it should be made clear that the traditional notion of the dream as “fantasy” is now, most assuredly, open to question. In light of what has been revealed with reality and the nature of multi-dimensional experience, it seems probable now that the dreamworld is in fact an aspect of our universe—a type of “non-physical” plane which our consciousness seems to have access to while in lower brainwave states.

Presumably, this is something analogous to the astral, perhaps contained within it, but with certain notable distinctions: There seems to be some kind of mechanism or energetic structuring which partitions it from that of the outlying regions, forming somewhat of an inter-realm between frequencies, which is in some measure exclusive to the individual. The reason for this feature is up for speculation. What seems most feasible is that this is something natural that functions almost as a kind…

Dreams open us up to a path of mystery, pulling us in the direction of our life’s purpose. Every dream has a message, a wound that needs healing, guiding incite, a spark that is necessary for true personal evolution. If at all possible, we in our relationship to  the dream, discover the hidden meanings, giving us a sense of understanding, excitement and responsibility.

Our innate skill to dream and interpret this mysterious realm of our subconscious, we find ourselves being nourished and in servitude to harmony of mind body and soul.

There is so much we are capable of as human beings and the dream-scape can be an important facet in the positive progress of who we are as individuals and even collectively. And what better way to facilitate these valuable experiences by communing with nature as a tool. Certain plants are known throughout history to help one engage in accessing our birth right to the dream world. In this article we will be discussing plant medicine for dreaming!

Oneirogens are herbs, supplements or substances that help the user produce a dream like state. From the greek oneiros “to dream” and “gen”create. Essentially the word means “to create a dream”. These various substances safely help  induce, increase and enhance your innate ability to have out of body experiences, lucid dreams, prophetic divinations and better dream recall!

Herbal oneirogens are otherwise known as “dream herbs“. These herbs are known throughout history to be used for just that.. dreams!  Whether in the form of divination, prophecy, shamanic ceremony, to help the tribe or shamanic initiation these herbs have been used in a sacred manner for thousands of years.

You can find many of these amazing herbs HERE!

Here are two different examples of Dream Herbs!

mugwort artemisia vulgaris

One of the most common herbs for dreaming is called Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris). This herb has been used since ancient times for dreaming and for its medicinal benefits. It can be used as a mild sedative, for intense menstrual cramps and much more. The deep history behind Mugwort as  a dream herb is quite extensive. Many whom use Mugwort in this way may experience increased lucidity during dreaming. It may at times also bring up darker shadow-self dreams in order to bring these things to light in order for you to engage in understanding yourself better and evolving emotionally.

Xhosa Root By AaronWeis

Another less commonly known dream herb is Xhosa Dream Root (Silene capensis). This plant has been used by the Xhosa people from South Africa for thousands of years to divine worship and heal. There form of shamanic dream work involves what they call Ubulawu or white ways/paths. This process of initiation is used to help a person learn what their calling is. Whether it be a herder, hunter, dancer or many more vocations a tribe person may feel called to. Among westerners this root has been  to help people dream more vividness and clarity. This can sometimes bring about prophetic symbols and guidance in one’s everyday life.

There are actually a large number of dream herbs or Herbal Oneirogens found across the globe. Many in which have deep cultural significance for the peoples whom use them. I’d love to share all of them within this post but there are far too many to cover in one article. So if you’d like to learn more about the vast array of herbs for dreaming available visit my Blog Here!.

Keep in mind not every herb is for everyone. Be sure to do your research and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, take pharmaceutical drugs or have a medical condition talk with your doctor or certified practitioner before using. It’s always best to be safe!

Now that you have some supplemental knowledge(No pun intended), it’s time to put it to the dreaming test. There is some much you can learn from your self with the assistance of these sacred botanicals. I recommend using these herbs as dream tonics. So taking them for 5-7 days at a time, giving yourself a few days break or more depending on your intentions is best, plus they have other healing benefits aside from being used for dreams!

Many dream herbs have a cumulative effect in the body. Some take a few days to build up in the body so as you experiment with these herbs, you’ll find ones that work better for you than others, if you try one for one night and it doesn’t work, don’t dash your efforts, you can always go for longer or try another. We all work differently and have different preferences.

Dream Well, Stay Awesome, Live Better!
