In some cultures dreams are sought after by the use of chemicals found in plants or they are waking dreams known to most as hallucinations. That is vary dangerous not to be able to tell reality from fiction as it's happening. However you can achieve altered dreams through meditations, common herbs, & audio and visual simulations, all without using drugs. Curiously, certain kinds of cheese, such as Stilton, are said to bring about odd and memorable dreams if eaten (around 1 oz.) just before sleep.
Never and I mean never take any illegal substance for any reason, there are those who believe that along with eating cheese even eating pizza just before bed time will alter your dreams. That makes sense if cheese works pizza is full of cheeses.
I get this information from
and it is all without drugs or alcohol.
I tried the cheese idea with just some very sharp cheddar and I did have a weird dream.
There are those who will argue that dreams are the reality and our "so-called waking hours are not real.
I have had a O.B.E. in connection N.D.E. and it was very very real as it happened and it was not fun for me because of the circumstances. Dreams however are great because in them you can do things you might otherwise not be able to do if you have waking dreams you can control them. When you go to sleep tell yourself you are going to have dream you will take control of and when you do have in mind what you want to do. I decided I was going to escape a monster my father told me was not real after nightmares about it. And the next time it came after me and i was running away I remembered that my father said it was a dream and it a dream you can do anything you want and at that minute I put my arm out front like superman and took off flying away from the monster.
Since that time I have been able to control dreams a dew more times and it's amazing. I recommend the cheese as a test to see if it effects your dreams just for fun.
I would love to hear your thoughts or better the results of your own experiments. It's only food so it should be safe.
This episode made me think about dreams again.
If you haven't seen the 1984 Movie Dreamscape with Dennis Quaid & Kate Capshaw I recommend it. You will hear what I just said about being in control. Good scary at times movie.
