>start taking valerian root cause i ran out of xanax and i wanted to cut down on drugs
>dreams fucking obliterate me, i wake up fresh on my own after 3 hours of sleep but my dreams are weird as fuck and absolutely real

It's my second day taking valerian root and I woke up because some guy threw water at me and I kicked "him" full-force and fucked my shelf up.
Is it possible that the LSD could be potentiating the effects of the valerian root? I've read of people getting night terrors but I'm kinda interested how deep this can go. Anyone with similar experiences?

Get your hands on some velvet bean, take that, valerian, magnesium, and possibly some choline right before bed and you'll be having the best dreams of your life. Don't do choline too often though, it causes cancer in high dosages. Velvet bean ftw tho

I'm convinced I went through sleep paralysis last night,

I could see out of my window, but in a distorted, shifting way. It was very strange and I wonder if I may have experienced the same thing before, seeing my window with open eyes but in a non-waking state.

One time after an acid trip I finally got some sleep and woke up unable to move with this horrible sensation pulsing through my body. This combined with the hallucinations it was producing, such as an ethereal version of my dog that jumped on my bed and laid down in front of me and disappearing a short while after, made me feel overwhelmed with fear. I'm pretty sure this was sleep paralysis, but I'm not sure.

Lately I've been considering the possibility that sleep paralysis is the result of demonic infiltration. Maybe not, but maybe the mechanism that makes your body stop responding to your thoughts while you're in REM (the usual explanation for sleep paralysis) involves some kind of separation from you consciousness and body, and the disembodied evil spirits that we call demons see it as an opportunity to at least try to latch on and take over our physical forms (what else do they have going on?). These experiences are almost always coupled with an intense sense of dread and/or a very harmful, threatening presence.

So usually when I experience sleep paralysis the first thing I notice is an inability to speak. My first reaction to the feeling is to try and scream! Nothing comes out; I can't even open my mouth. My most recent experience with this sparked this theory that the scary part of the whole ordeal is some kind of demonic threat.

I was laying in my bed, and my mother's voice called to me from outside my door. She said "let me in, Josh." in a very authoritative tone. It sounded just like her, but for some reason I was suspicious that is wasn't her but someone or something trying to trick me into open the door to "let it in". I tried to say "what" or "pardon?" to put it to the test and make sure if it really was Mom, but I couldn't speak or move. Then I totally came to and it was over.

Anyway, it's just a theory and something to have in mind in case anyone has experiences that might lean them towards this view on the matter. What does /DR/ think?

Let me add this on the subject of demons in dreams. I've had several experiences where I've encountered a negative or challenging entity in dreams that felt unnatural to me. A few times I've encountered characters in my dreams who do not feel like they are from my subconscious or imagination, and it's always negative in some way. Either their appearance is not like anything I would come up or their behavior feels very separate from me. Usually dreams feel like they are totally a product of us, and even when things happen that we don't like, it's just our fears manifest. But personally I've had several experiences where I'll abruptly encounter a "character" who feels very out of place and ill-intentioned. Just more of my own personal experience. Maybe some of you can relate.

i was watching king of the hill where hank was having a dream where he played golf and drank beer with willie nelson, then they started playing guitar but hanks guitar started to sound horrible and he woke up and realized that it was bobby playing guitar.
this reminded me of dreams i have had where in the dream something connects with the real world that has only just then happened.
could it be that i never dreamed those things the time i thought i dreamt them? that the dream created a memory of dreaming those things along with the actual dream?
that would certainly change the way i think about dreams.
have any of you experienced something similar? am i remembering wrong?

Yes, certainly. Memory is a funny thing that way. You can accidentally (or purposefully) convince yourself or someone else that something happened and the memory will be created. Also, our perception and many other individual factors can distort memories. This happens regularly during our waking lives and the memories can be about our waking lives, so dreams certainly have the potential to play the same sorts of tricks and even more so.

I specifically remember a dream I had that was a music video of a duet. The woman was walking and dancing along windows upstairs in a building singing to a man down on the street. He was going in the same direction as the woman, singing up to her as his backup dancers followed him. I awoke to the song playing on the radio. This was in 1992 and I can't remember the song. For a while I thought it was Paula Abdul's Opposites Attract, but it's something else.

I had a very strange cartoon dream one time, It was all these cartoon cats in a strange, cartoon, psychedelic world. When I woke up I realized that I had left the TV on, there was this show where they would do voice-overs on videos of gerbils and hamsters (to this day I don't know what show this was) and the voices from the show were the voices of the cats talking to each other. Basically my brain was taking in the audio of this show and laying its own imagined images on top of it. Haven't had a dream like this since I started turning the TV off before bed.

I used to have nightmares, almost every night, waking me up between 4 and 6 am, sometimes once every hour, for around six months after a hard break-up.

Anyway, it came back, and now I wake up at 4, 5am, then I can't sleep at all. Then I just fall asleep in the afternoon like an old man. It hasn't been a problem so far as I live alone, but I'm gonna go and spend a few months with my family soon and I don't want them to get super concerned about me because I have a background in bringing lots of troubles and shit.

Thus, I want to get into transcendental meditation again, which helped me with a lot of things when I was twelve. I'm twenty right now, by the way.
But the thing is, either I'm "doing it wrong" or I don't have enough practice anymore because I can't get into the right mind set. Any advices?

Also, forgive me if I breach any unspoken rule of these parts, I usually only post on the future's /tg/ board so I don't know the local linguo.

I'm no expert my self, but I think the key is practice. We gotta meditate consistently and often, and work our way into the transcendental state. I've been meditating more than I used to, but sometimes i still have nightmares or sleep paralysis. One thing I have read again and again is to start focusing on breath and posture. Build a strong foudation and all that.

Here is as handy guide you may to be of use

I remember being told/hearing somewhere that dreams have an evolutionary function of preparing us for future events. I don't know how true that is but I know that I sometimes have a very strong feeling that my dreams correspond to my real life.

>Dream that i'm running around in a kind of race/game with people from my work. It's like an enormous children's play area. I'm trying to keep up all the time but don't realise fully its a game. Suddenly my co-worker starts jumping up and down and counting. He tells me to do it but i'm like wut? He then speeds off with another co-worker and i'm left alone trying to jump. They come back to laugh at me. I try to find them again but completely lost. End up in a sort of souterrain. There are two creepy kids there and i wake up when the three of us cant get out and they are screaming like demons.
Basically, I felt like I had this dream because I was having a tough time at work.

Another time I dreamed about a huge kafkaesque hotel I couldn't get out of, which would have been about the same thing.

Recently I dreamed that I was abducted by a hippyish cult in a youth hostel. This is after I had apparently been drugged to sleep at my current job. They showed me forms that I had apparently filled in saying i had a heartattack and so on. The writing was very bad and they told me I was drunk but wouldn't tell me more After they all show themselves to be batshit insane/drugged out of their heads i flee, I'm looking for my dorm room to find my mother - because she's come to visit - and pass my cat from my childhood along the way.
Basically this all relates to me trying to move on to a better job at the moment. I think I also have issues with 'growing up' but whatev.

I keep having dreams where I find that my mother is beat to death. This happens often, but I am not sure how often. The dreams are never the same. My dreams are also completely nonsensical. I just know I find my mother dead in a room covered in blood beat to death with a hammer or some other object. I am sad about the event in my dreams. I don't really know what this means. It is a little frightening.

For as long as I can remember, whenever I'm getting a blowjob in a dream, I can't stand it for more than a couple seconds. It's an unbearable, painful, tingling discomfort. It's hard to describe, but it really is unbearable and I'm actually feeling the pain! It's only when I'm getting head, and it's every time! I don't understand this and I can't find anything on the internet even remotely close to it.

Right? And I'm you cowardly waking up from afar. I'm wondering whether waking up is cowardly or not. Because to be asleep is to fully submit to the dream while still subconsciously knowing you're asleep, thus technically being awake.

Anyone have any homosexual dreams but they consider themselves straight? or maybe you're homo and you have straight dreams?

I have a bisexual friend and I dreamt he and I were lying naked in my mother's bed (weird). We then decided to kiss eachother on the lips, but I didn't enjoy it at all. Then we almost gave eachother handjobs (haha) but that never eventuated. The whole dream kind of reaffirmed my straightness but at the same time reflected an underlying loneliness I feel- a longing for sexual affection that is perhaps misguided.

I posted it before, but once I had a dream where a girl who looked like Uma Thurman was flirting with me and asked me out on a date while we were on a bus ride through some whimsical dream. When the dream was ending, it's like she was aware of it, because she said "don't forget about our date" right before I woke up.

It didn't get physical at all, but I was very attracted to her, which is unusual.

Does anyone have tips on curbing lucid dreaming or at least taking the edge off of nightmares? Particularly the night when it's happening?

This past year it feels like I've had more nightmares than normal nights of sleep. And there's been some nights where I'll wake up every hour from a nightmare, and then go right back into another nightmare. Until I eventually just call it quits and get up early.
If there's a way of possibly correcting a sequence of dreams on the night it's happening, that'd help a lot.

When you start waking up from a dream, you lose all 5 senses IN ORDER, first you lose your vision, then you lose your sense of taste, then you lose your sense of smell, then you lose your sense of hearing, then you lose your sense of touch. Since touch is the last to go, whenever you see the dream world start to go black(as in waking up) you must drop to the ground and feel the texture of the ground with your hands. Rub the ground and remember what the surrounding area looked like as you focus on the sensation of the ground. This will enable the dream world to re-appear if you have enough focus.

You can do this unlimited times.

I've only had a few lucid dreams. I was in class talking to this faggot Andy, wait a minute, fuck Andy, oh I'm in a dream. I immediately began running around the ethereal school thinking about all the things I could do. I could fly, I could even swim. Wait, I can swim in real life. Immediately lost control.

Another time I just realized I was asleep, that's it. I just realized "I'm lucid dreaming". I saw only blackness, as if I was awake, but I wasn't, and my heart beating fast as a CHEETAH.
How can I lucid dream forever if I can't stay calm? Next time I lucid dream I'm going to walk into the forest and create a tree. Is this a simple dream task?
