I know it's a touchy subject to discuss drugs but let me just say this, if you are a kid reading this do not EVER try psychedelic drugs or any drugs for that matter. No one under 21 should ever be experimenting with mind altering drugs because it can change the way your brain develops during that very sensitive time. When I discuss these psychedelics I am not talking about a fun way to get "high" or "loaded." I am talking about a responsible utilization of these natural chemicals for a spiritual purpose.
Dr. Rick Strassman wrote a book called "DMT, the Spirit Molecule" where he did research by dosing a group of volunteers under controlled conditions and recording their experiences (trips).
His theory is that DMT is actually produced in humans and other mammals in the Pineal Gland and it may be released during dreams, alien abductions, NDEs and other paranormal experiences. If this is true, we can and do trip naturally. A lot of people had written off his theory and even called him a quack, but just this year DMT was discovered in the Pineal Glands of rats so maybe he is right after all.
Not advocating trying DMT or any psychoactive substance of course, but it is very interesting reading, especially for lucid dreamers. I mostly enjoyed reading the trip reports. Many of the experiences had interesting similarities. They sound like lucid dreams on steroids at warp speed.

You won't need DMT. Trust me, there is nothing higher than a good lucid dream, no trip that can compete. Anyone who doesn't think so hasn't had the real deal. Lucid Dreaming is the ultimate "trip". As real as it gets, real to the touch, only it's a complete other world. The only way you can improve on a lucid dream is with a better lucid dream.
Develop it to it's potential and there will be no doubt. At it's best, it is a perfect alternative reality that does not impair the senses and has no side effects. It can be stopped instantly any time you want. Yes, it's a skill that has to be developed and no instant gratification like a drug. But you get out what you put in. For many, drugs are the beginning of altering consciousness, but lucid dreaming is the end.
I think if you practice noticing the details in waking life, you will find them in dream too. I work on being a good observer in waking life and my dreams are very detailed and super-real.
Use the lucid dreaming technique that works best for you and practice, practice, practice. Be patient. Don't expect any lucid dreams before 5 hours of sleep, 5-7 hours is the best time for most people.
That's about it. Good luck and happy tripping!
