Dream Diviners Root- A Sacred Lucid Dream Herb From South Africa!
That's right folks there's a root out there used for dream divination! Before we reveal this sacred root for your reading pleasure, let’s cover what dream divination is, so you can get an idea of how amazing this root really is.
Dream divination- What is it?
Your dreams and the ability of divination come one in hand. Elements of the mystical, synchronicity and surprise are in both. They go together like peaches and cream. In many indigenous cultures to this day, dreaming is a form of divination. The colors, symbols, information and scenery of dreams bring messages of meaningful significance. These meanings are incorporated into one's daily life or to help others. Heal past traumas, find your lost keys or figuring out how to solve a big problem in your life are all things obtained through dream divination.
"In many indigenous cultures to this day, dreaming is a form of divination."
In Native American traditions and many other native cultures dreams are shared with the utmost importance. These dreams are shared with the entire community, rather than just with the people closest to them. Often they are signs or symbols that the tribe uses for predicting successful hunting expeditions, healing the sick or wounded and even foretelling upcoming events.
In the Eastern Cape of South Africa live a people in which utilize certain herbs to commune with their ancestors, dream divination at its finest. These people are called the Xhosa people. They practice a form of plant spirit shamanism since ancient times, thousands of years ago and to this day their tradition holds strong.
"...dream divination at its finest."
They call this practice Ubulawu roughly translated as white ways or white paths. They use a mixture or sometimes a single root in special ceremonies lasting 3 days or more. Oftentimes these rituals are meant for those whom are being appointed as dream diviners, seers or shamans, for helping the sick, the needy and to appoint new leaders in the community. Many youngsters are given the special herbal preparations to help them discover what vocation in life they should choose or become.
One herb in particular worth noting is African Dream Root. That's right folks there is literally an herb called African Dream Root! Its Latin name is Silene capensis. (You can find the root available here!) Whether you're looking to increase your ability to lucid dream, have enhanced dream memory, or fortify your dream divination skills this herb may be of help. Traditionally the root is extracted in cold water and a froth is made by agitating the concoction. The froth is drunk until the feeling of fullness is reached every day for 3 days during the ceremony.
"...increase your ability to lucid dream, have enhanced dream memory, or fortify your dream divination skills..."
Recent discoveries by many people around the world find that this herb can be made into a tea or in tincture form rather than just consuming the froth and with great results across the board. We have found a simple tea or using our potent dual extracted tincture to work just as well or even better than the froth method (Side note: You can even make a froth from our tincture). This is a rare herb and is hard to come by so it's better to conserve it. The Xhosa have an abundance of the herb so it's easier for them to use larger amounts enabling them to just consume the froth. (You can find a special tincture here!)
"This is a rare herb and is hard to come by so it's better to conserve it."
We have personally found this root to be of incredible importance for many peoples dreaming practices and it has helped people find deep meaning to the importance of their lives. Dream herbs work best as dream tonics. Dream tonics are used for about 5-7 days at a time and with a few days break depending on the intention or results. The root has a cumulative effect and it takes time to build up in your system. Some see results within day one, others it can take up to 5-7 days before seeing any noticeable dream results.
Now that you have some dreamy herbal information at your fingertips it's time to put it to the diviners test! Whether you're looking to increase your ability to lucid dream, have enhanced dream memory or to fortify your dreaming abilities this herb may be the thing you've been waiting for.
Thank you all so much for caring about yourselves, these plants, your environment and your communities. We appreciate the support, excitement and friendliness from all of you.
