Whare are the best lucid dream pills?
Both galantamine and huperzine-A are acetylcholine esterase (AChE) inhibitors which means their primary effect is to block to normal breakdown of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.
Both are commonly combined with choline for enhanced dreaming and to prevent headaches. Supplements dedicated to lucid dreaming generally include this. If not, you can buy choline separately.
DISCLAIMER: Before taking any herb or supplement, you are strongly advised to consult a qualified physician. What you do with this information is entirely your responsibility.
An extract from the Red Spider Lily, galantamine is proven to significantly improve cognitive function and both waking and dream memory.
The effects of galantamine were discovered more than 3,000 years ago by the Ancient Greeks, when Homer described its effects on dream recall. It has also been used in China for centuries as a memory enhancer.
Galantamine is now used to treat Alzheimer's Disease, a degenerative condition of severe memory loss. A common side effect reported by patients taking galantamine is highly vivid and memorable dreams.
Research by Dr Stephen LaBerge shows galantamine significantly intensifies your dreams on many levels, including cognition, lucidity, recall, control, bizarreness and visual vividness.
A good source of galantamine for lucid dreaming is Lucidimine, sold by Amazon:
(Contains galantamine, alpha-GPC, CDP-choline and L-theanine)
Galantamine is an acetylcholine esterase (AChE) inhibitor. Besides preventing memory loss, this increases the length of your REM sleep phases and enhances the intensity of your dreams.
To facilitate the production of acetylcholine and enhance the intensity of your dreams further, try to get more Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) into your diet through foods like liver, bran, sunflower seeds, mushrooms, cheese, fish, sun-dried tomatoes and avocados.
If you can't see to doing this through your diet, try a Vitamin B5 supplement.
Huperzine-A is a highly purified product of Chinese club moss. It's used in Alzheimer's Disease, memory and learning enhancement, and increasing alertness and energy.
It's now used in a number of lucid dream pills:
(Contains 5-HTP, mugwort, huperzine-A, choline bitartrate and DHEA)
(Contains huperzine-A, alpha CPC and choline)
Get at least 4-6 hours of sleep before taking a galantamine or huperzine-A supplement.
This will give you a decent amount of deep sleep before embarking on prolonged periods of REM sleep (lengthened by the effect of acetylcholine).
What's more, your REM periods grow longer toward the end of the night anyway, so this timing makes the most of your active dream phases.
Dosage depends on the brand so check the instructions on the bottle. Typically a 4-6mg dose creates a noticeable effect on dream intensity. You might increase to 12mg over time if necessary.
This dose will yield significantly more vivid and memorable dreams, and will likely lead to lucid dreams when combined with your regular lucidity training.
After taking a lucid dream pill, lay quietly in bed incubating your lucid dream intention.
The hypnagogia should come fast. Use it to visualize your desired dream scene and repeat in your mind the mantra: "The next scene will be a dream."
If we're completely honest, lucid dreaming isn't really known for being the most social of interests. In fact, often it's a lone pursuit - just you, your dream journal and the landscape of your mind. But this technique called PAL (or Partner Assisted Lucidity) breaks down that wall and turns lucid dream exploration into a social event.
Members of our lucid dream forum have been asking how to create dream characters in lucid dreams. The most common problem is having characters who look nothing like they should. Or they seem disinterested in your company. Or they fail to show up on command altogether. So, how to combat this? It's a matter of finding creative solutions that bypass logical expectations.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
It is estimated that these wise and wily Indians have been using mugwort in their healing and ritual practices for 13,000 years, where it is known as the ‘dream sage’. They use the herb to promote good dreams, which they consider an essential aspect of normal human functioning! But that’s not all...
Silene Capensis has been used for millennia by the Xhosa shaman of the river valleys in the eastern cape of South Africa, where it is known as Undela Ziimhlophe or 'white paths'. It's fragrant white flowers open only at night, when they emit a fragrant and almost hypnotising aroma. Also known as African Dream Herb or Ubulawu, Silene Capensis induces spectacularly vivid dreams - yet has never entered the mainstream and remains a fringe taste within western culture.
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
