I drank some kombucha last night before I went to bed, and I had very vivid dreams for several hours this morning, though I can only remember some of them.

I used to keep a dream journal regularly, and still record them sometimes. I've recorded at least a few hundred dreams since about 2002 or so, and many of them were lucid. But I got bored with it I guess and stopped doing it, and when I stopped bringing awareness to my dream habits, I stopped remembering much of them, until most nights I don't remember any dreams now. But last night was unusual.


I remember once I ate a raw morel too. I had very vivid and earthy dreams that night, about hunting in the woods for morels. I talked to someone else once about morels, and I asked him if he ever ate one raw. I didn't mention that I had, but he yes said that yes, he had, and that it gave him crazy dreams that night! So I told him that the same thing happened to me.


So this all got me to thinking ... I believe some times that big Hollywood movies have grains (sometimes very large grains) of truth embedded into them, as if to suggest radical things to the public's consciousness without doing it in a threatening way to their belief systems. In the new Star Wars movies, it's said that "the force" comes from tiny organisms in the bloodstream. Maybe this was inspired by the micro-organisms in the kombucha and raw morels that have caused my dreams to become very vivid?

I also have been waking up, and while still in a trance-like state, half asleep, I've had two "voices" suddenly press themselves into my consciousness that told me things that were accurate, such as that someone was coming and would be there soon, and sure enough as soon as I got up my mom and brother had arrived to visit.


I did a Google search and found that others also have associated kombucha with changes in their dream habits:

Are you drinking the Kombucha right before bed? It is possible for Kombucha to improve your brain function so that you are more aware of your dreams. If you don't want to remember your dreams, I suggest stopping drinking it by 2 PM every day. Kombucha is a wonderful drink, full of phytonutrients, trace minerals, and great stuff!

Anyway, I just wanted to share this.
