Has anyone taken or have any experience with DMAE to help induce Lucid dreaming? I have taken DMAE on and off for years. I originally started taking it after I read an article about how it helps increase lucid dreams, although this became a secondary reason for taking it. DMAE is known to increase the ability to learn, improves mood which helps in dealing with stuff (the most noticeable effect to me and why I continue to take it), and memory. Since memory is so crucial to dreaming lucidly (you have to realize and keep remembering that it's just a dream.), it does really help with that. There are no negative side effects (except maybe the cost). The effects are subtle and it takes 2 weeks before it becomes noticeable. I hadn't seen any mention of DMAE on this site so I thought I would throw it out there. How about any other health supplements or smart drugs etc. that aid in dreaming?
One aid I have used is brainwave entertainment CDs. Those help to put your brain on certain wavelength. They really do work, but of course an outside aid will only take you so far. I haven't experienced with any herbs, although I find it curious that Seth (Jane Roberts) books mentions that eating eggs and asparagus will help with out-of-body travel. There was a tip somewhere around the forum about eating a baked potato before bed too. Too busy to link right now, but maybe I'll dig it out later.
Really interesting, thanks for pointing it out. It said that natural sources are oily fish especially Wild Alaskan Salmon and sardines. Hmm...fish oil has benefits of improving moods. I wonder if there is any connection there at all.

thats interestimg, i am interested in the creation of new products, herbs, and meds etc, mostly i find the process of creation and 'instillment' or i guess enchanting of energies into physical 'carriers'. lol.. potions, elixers and stuff. i even find a good conversataion, or a book, or meditation can easily do the same thing.. then i guess you simply 'encapsle' the outcome, or perceptual result.. cheaper the above i think.. but whatever works. on the flip side of creative means is destructive means as well, which in my case is used to redirect a result, or outcome, simply by reaslising the transformational process of a 'shift'.. for example eating a poision or a drug, and by directing awareness or thought one actively changes the outcome, or the 'effect' of whatever is within one's attention or rather expectation. i try to remember that the internal judgements and energies within my attention are fueling the moment around me, including 100% any effects to my body.. and so the point being here is that the conception of the outcome is what produces the outcome.
another thing that catches me is memory for lucid dreaming.. i disagree that memory is crucial for this process, as for myself dreaming is newness which flows naturally from one point, the past, to another point ...something new and creative.. actively in dreaming the memory can act as a block to progress, unfortunately, 'recreating' a past sequence of paradigm or realisations of 'what reality is'.. however in dreaming reality is everything.. and essentially nothing at all.. personally i find that the only thing needed for dreaming is to be, whatever one is, activity exosts all the time, i am always active, the only thing holding me back is infact a memory, which is, in this place already old and out of date, though as they say the memeory does try to hang on. i find interesting that reality is sustained not only by memory but by intent alone, as well as a dialogue.. some people who do not wish to remain in memory and wish to attain freedom from their past, to move on, have developed conditions such as amnesia and other memory conditions, which ofcourse is also a natural result of intent.. at that point, i can tell you, that reality as was once known is not phesable, it does not align anymore, and becomes totally incative.. freeing the past blockages of stagnant energies, to free flow in the moment of conception.. this is why in awareness of dreaming one does not remember the dreams upon waking, because those memories and those orders of motion are "locked", or hidden away in those 'positions' of living, upon waking the awareness of the person moves back to the awareness of 'daily living' or if one intends to does not. however in my experience of 'past' living it does so happen. just to add that a secret of awareness is that every position of reality exists.. in that position of awareness, and as such by changing ones awareness changes reality.. every memory however is retreivable, if one so desires to retrieve them.
