Staying inside days on end can get boring, and I think we’ve all experienced that at least once by now. The question is, what other things can we possibly do? There’s knitting and sewing, cooking and baking, spring cleaning and renovating, but we’ve already checked those off the list and done them twice. So what’s next? Lucid dreaming! I know that sounds a bit far out, but get this: our blue lotus tea can help you do it! Want to know more? Continue reading down below.
What is lucid dreaming?
Lucid dreaming typically occurs when a dreamer is completely aware that they are dreaming. In this state, you can recognize your own emotions and thoughts, and sometimes you can even control the dream itself. Awareness allows you to maybe change the plot, the setting, or the entire storyline of your dream, and before you know it, you’re directing your own movie as you sleep.
A lot of people turn to this method of dreaming as it is way of providing relief to those who experience frequent nightmares, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse, and depression. It can also assist in several other ailments as well. This happens because with awareness also comes realization. You are able to control any nightmares or subsequent symptoms by turning them into more neutral and pleasant thoughts or experiences.
Lucid dreaming, while having several aforementioned benefits, is also a great way to increase your motor skills, enhance creativity, and overall have fun. It is a journey of self-realization that has yet to be traveled if you haven’t tried it.
How can The Qi Blue Lotus tea help induce lucid dreaming?
The effects of lotus flowers date back to ancient Egypt with their wines and medicines; and have very similar properties to the cannabis plant and small amounts of other psychoactives. This means it can create a feeling of relaxation, euphoria, and happiness—not necessarily in that order; and it has long been known to improve the ability of lucid dreaming.
If you want to do a little experimentation, take just about a pinch (or one flower from The Qi) in a hot cup of water before bed. Once it settles, it will likely produce more vivid dreams and increased awareness of those dreams. To even further your practice, pair the nightly exercise with some meditation, dreaming techniques, or restorative yoga.
