How many of us remember our dreams? How many of us can control them?

People who have lucid dreams know they are dreaming and they have the ability to control their dreams.

The lucid dreamers I know are able to navigate their dreamscape with an awakened mind, asking characters they come across pretty insightful questions about their spirit path. They can run, jump, and fly at will, gaining profound inner wisdom from the experience.

If one wants to dream more at night and maybe even experience the allusive lucid dream, there are three herbs one can take before bed that will help. These herbs have been used for centuries as both medicines and dream enhancers.

Caution: Although these herbs are completely legal, one should practice caution when taking them. On top of producing better dreams, these herbs also have medicinal properties. Take this into consideration when using them and perform proper research.

Wild Asparagus Root— Asparagus Racemosus

Asparagus root is called Tian Men Dong in Chinese. This directly translates to “heavenly spirit herb.” Shamans, monk, and yogis have cherished this herb for millennia because of it’s heart-opening properties.

It also known as “The Flying Herb” because it is believed that it helps one “fly through the universe at night, achieving magnificent dreams.” This was important because wisdom schools of ancient China place much value on lucid dream work.

According to Chinese folk medicine, asparagus root has a direct and positive effect on heart energy and dissolving our physical incarnation dualities. “This allows our consciousness to blossom into infinite space while we sleep.”

Preparation

Brewing a tea of either the fresh or dried root is the best way to use wild asparagus. However, fresh asparagus root will be much more potent and effective.

Valerian Root — Valeriana Officinalis

Commonly used in folk medicine as a calming aid, muscle relaxant, and to promote deep sleep for centuries, valerian root also tends to induce lucid dreaming. That is because it causes a heightened state of slumber.

Valerian also appears to help people remember their dreams. According to Robert Monroe, famed specialist in Out of Body Experiences, “Most of us dream, and those who don’t simply are not remembering them.”

Valerian root may be the thing one needs to remember their dreams and even navigate them successfully.

Warning: There is not enough information on the effect of valerian root on pregnant women to determine whether it is safe or not. If one is expecting, it is best to avoid it.

Keep in Mind: Valerian root will intensify any nocturnal adventure be it a good dream or a nightmare. Keep that in mind when using it to enhance a dream state.

Preparation

More often than not, valerian is brewed in a tea. However, one must use hot water, no boiling water. Boiling water will destroy the delicate oils in the root. It is also possible to get a tincture from dried or fresh valerian root. These can normally be found in health food stores.

Mugwort — Artemisia Vulgaris Mugwort has a rich medicinal and metaphysical history throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Mugwort is referenced in Celtic and Norse mythology as a magical plant that can ward off evil. It was hung in doorways and burnt as incense to clear stagnant air and prevent illness.

Mugwort is known as “Molush” by the Chumash Indians of California, and its Paiute name translates literally to “Dream Plant”. It’s often smoked in indigenous ceremonies, and interestingly, is also hailed by various tribes for its power to ward off evil, bad spirits, and disease. — The Sacred Science

Mugwort can be found almost anywhere. Take a look around the next time you go for a walk and you are sure to find some.

Preparation Mugwort can be brewed as a tea of smoked in a pipe. The leaves of the plant are what contain the active chemical compounds used enhance dreams.

With careful preparation and planning, one can easily learn to navigate their dreams with the use of natural herbs. Use your resting time to learn all that you can about your spiritual path.
