Cultural Induction Techniques
« on: May 14, 2019, 04:46:39 PM »
I think one of the most well known cultural lucid dreaming induction methods is dream yoga. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I couldn't help but wonder if there are other culturally based dreaming or lucid dreaming techniques out there. I know there are other methods, like vision questing, where participants might be secluded and also fast in order to induce extraordinary dreams. Not likely a technique to be used on a regular basis but an interesting way to go about it none the less. Are there any other culturally based induction techniques you heard of or experienced?

I'd try fasting more but I need to keep up my energy to work, and bike now that it's summer. Last winter I went for three days without eating. Didn't realize how much it affects your mental faculties too. Being hungry doesn't bother me much but don't care for the fuzzy mental clarity that comes with it.

But as it is most of the time now I'm just eating enough to keep up my energy. Surprising how little a person actually needs.
It's not only about the dreams. It's a way of life.

I can't fast often due to low iron in my blood. Miss a meal and my body systems go haywire. I did discover that you actually don't need a lot of food, just small portions of 'real' food. That makes me wonder if there are dreaming enhancement rituals that involve eating a particular food instead fasting. Non hallucinogenic foods I am referring to of course.

Maybe, I'm not sure. 

I remember watching an episode of Survivor Man and he was having a rough time of it, starving. He had woke up once and talked about the hunger causing crazy vivid dreams.

I saw Johnb's post about the Reishi mushrooms. I never of heard of that before. It might be something I'd be willing to give a try if it's something they have on shelves at the store. But I probably wouldn't go out of my way to get it, or order it online.

I've not had much to eat today. A bite here and there.
