Is THC the key to get in y-our dreams?

Marijuana affects dreams. Stoners say they don’t have dreams but if they stop smoking for a few days, they are flooded with dreams. Is there any psychological research supporting this?”

I can vouch for this fact. Once I stop smoking its a lucid paradise for the first 5 nights ….. any longer than that I feel like i’m living more of a life in my dreams then I am in physical reality and that did become scary/draining for me. I did not want to go to sleep because I just knew I was in for a very intense adventure. Honestly this is one of the reason I decided to begin smoking weed again, I was overwhelmed at the very detailed memories I was bringing back from dream experiences. I was literally running from the police after a prison break for 2 days IN A DREAM … 2 full days in a dream,  I will tell that story later. 

Sleep and wakefulness are both parts of a normal daily rhythm. Fish, cats, humans, and many other living things have daily cycles of activity and rest. This daily cycle is called a circadian rhythm. “Circadian” comes from the Latin root “circa dies” and means “about a day.” Both external and internal events can influence circadian rhythms. Morning light and alarm clocks trigger wakefulness. When isolated from normal time cues, the daily human cycle is about 24 hours, hence “circa dies.”

“Though sleep seems like a passive state to us, the brain is still very active. In fact, the EEG of a person falling asleep shows five stages of sleep: Stages 1 through 4 and a stage called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Each stage is progressively deeper and the complete cycle is repeated several times during the night. When awakened during REM sleep, subjects report dreaming. So if dreams take place during REM sleep, the question for us is: Does smoking marijuana interrupt REM sleep?”

“To address this question, Feinberg, et al. (1975) compared the sleep patterns of experienced marijuana users on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a placebo. Feinberg, et al. (1975) reported reduced eye movement activity and less REM sleep in the THC condition. They also reported a REM rebound effect, that is more REM activity, on withdrawal from THC. So,there exists some scientific evidence that marijuana interferes with REM sleep.”

Could this be the way to induce dreaming/ REM activity … begin to take thc then go cold turkey?  Hmmmm 

If sleep is fascinating, dreaming is even more so. No one knows for sure the meaning or function of night-time dreams, but there is plenty of speculation. Freud believed dreams represented the royal road to theunconscious. They told us our secret desires and fears.

If you are located in the Metro Atlanta- Georgia are or close feel free to stop in on a nice Yoga session with @SuperDopeHeroin.  Sessions are every Tuesday at 6:00 PM.  I typically run on sp/cp spiritual people time so i managed to make it out yesterday for the last few minutes of the session. As I came out of a shoulder stand I look up and there is 3 or 4 Falcons flying very close above chasing each other. It was exciting opening my eyes to falcons almost coming close enough to jump up and grab if I were 10ft taller ,  I wish I could of snapped a shot of them.

Vesuvianite, Limonite Quartz, Carnelian, Dalmation Jasper

New crystal alert! I picked up a few new stones/crystals for the collection. Earlier this week I was grabbed by some Vesuvianite.  This stone feels smooth and soft. I always find it interesting how something solid can feel soft. Meditation with Vesuvianite will be going down soon. Right Now I have been focusing in on Dalmatian Jasper. The pattern reminds me of a Cheetah or Leopard never an actual Dalmatian puppy. The energy is interesting and fun. The best way I can describe the Dalmatian energy sensations is:  Picture your hand  balled into a fist jasper being held within, imagine a infinity symbol around your hand and the energy is flowing-following the pattern of the infinity symbol outline. Now imagine two infinite symbols in a X kind of pattern with energy flowing through the outline of the double figure 8. Also seemed to be directing my attention to the root chakra in an magnetic kind of way.  Carnelian I have heard much about and it was mentioned to me last night so I decided I have to pick some up. The Limonite Quartz caught my eye with the mimosa orange stained exterior. Quartz clusters are my go to lately, I just can not seem to get enough of them. More crystals and experiences/sensations with them coming soon.

Dalmatian Stone

This is a stone that aids you to break down barriers that you have created as protection around yourself.

It may also relieve the need to take revenge on anyone who you feel has done you wrong… as its vibration helps you to release any lack of trust in other people.  This allows you to move forward in life and discover your true purpose for being here. Its energy brings childlike joy and a sense of playfulness into your life.

The black spots are Black Tourmaline… and so it also embodies the energy of this stone, and will aid you with spiritual grounding and psychic protection.

-@shobegogo “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with?”
