Imagine being given the chance to explore the “real world” like in the movie The Matrix by choosing the red pill that Neo took to find out the truth that you are searching for. The truth may be much closer than you had imagined. As it turns out there are supplements for lucid dreaming and out of body experiences. Our bodies are extremely advanced chemical factories that can be enhanced and tweaked through the nutrients we get from a good balanced diet, exercise, and at least a couple of hours of sun bathing a day but with today’s farming practices that literally rape the land of these vital nutrients we have to seek out individual supplements. Two of these supplements are Alpha-GPC (Glycerophosphocholine) and Galantamine which will boost the levels of acetylcholine during REM sleep which give the brain a boost to help explore these states of consciousness.
Supplements For Lucid Dreaming And Out Of Body Experiences
The technical part
Alpha-GPC crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts as an acetylcholine precursor. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that research has linked with the ability to think, learn and remember. It also plays a major role in the regulation of sleep: its levels gradually rise during the night, in tandem with decreasing levels of serotonin.
Chemical structure of alpha-GPC. (A source of Choline, which is supposedly good for you — in appropriate doses.)
Our sleep consists of alternating phases of deep, dreamless sleep, and of relatively lighter, dream-filled sleep – also known as ‘REM sleep’. As the night begins, the phases of dreamless sleep are longer at first and the phases of REM shorter. This relationship gradually reverses as morning approaches. REM sleep is therefore associated with lower levels of serotonin and higher levels of acetylcholine, whereas in deep, dreamless sleep the ratio is reversed.
I went to bed at 10.30pm and fell asleep as normal. Then, at 3.40am, as my acetylcholine levels were naturally beginning to rise and the phases of REM naturally growing longer, I took 600mg of alpha-GPC and returned to bed. I had some difficulty getting back to sleep, and after about 30 minutes I got up again for the toilet.
The fun begins
Some time later my landlord came in to say he was taking his niece out for the day. I heard him explain, ‘Duncan is testing the effect of supplements on dreams’. But then I remembered I was at my partner’s house – so the appearance of my landlord could only mean one thing…
‘You’ve got to be kidding!’ I exclaimed.
It was totally indistinguishable from being awake. It didn’t feel at all like I was dreaming; I only knew, logically, that this had to be the case. When I looked closely at articles in the room (some coloured chess pieces near the window, for example) I knew they didn’t exist in reality – and then I noticed how other items were in different places from where I knew they really were.
Still a little nervous that I might be making a huge mistake, I drew the curtains apart and forced myself through the glass. It gave way like jelly.
So now I was certain – and I recognised it had to be the drug, making the dream more vivid than usual. As I floated to the pavement, the dream showed no sign of breaking apart. The concrete under my feet was as solid as reality. Original story here.
For some of you out there this information is second nature but for the rest this is modern day science merging with the esoteric which can explain the basic mechanics of how the portal to the lucid dream state or otherwise known as the door to the astral realms actually work. One of my objectives for this website is to eventually show a simple and easy way to develop a mode of communication with friends and family that have passed on into the other dimensions otherwise known as the afterlife or heaven. One of these tools are as simple as taking supplements for lucid dreaming and out of body experiences.
