I am not making a prediction! This is more a statement based question/ mybe a possibility. I have been experimenting with the use of mugwort during dreams. Well anyway, here goes.

Last night i had a dream that i was in a field with my family. While we were in this field i was looking into the sky and saying how we would know when we were going to evolve. We begin walking towards this house and a plane comes crashing out of the sky. When the plane hit the ground it wasn't destroyed. I watched the pilot get up out of the cockpit (he unstrapped his harness) and he came running out of the plane door. At this point i realized the plane would blowup (yea i know its a dream), so anyway. I then started to yell, "The plane is going to blowup! Run!". Everyone then began running towards these trees next to the fields.

Interesting. I am going to continue experimenting with the mugwort, and see if these dreams continue. This is day 2 of the experimentation. The first days dreams were not as intense and i did not get such feelings from them.

I am logging this in this section because of what i have read about mugwort online, and its prophetic/astral abilities.

What did the field look like? I have had the same dream, or something very close to it before.

It reminded me of a prairie. Low rolling hills with grass, mybe grazing cattle. The trees were like pines, or small redwoods.

Mine was something like wheat field, I know there where trees around, but that wasn't my main focus. When the plane crashed for me it hit, I saw myself look away in third person, while also seeing it explode into a cloud of black smoke with a red/orange fiery explosion.

Much like the first two in the right on this picture, but without the mushroom shape.

Well we didn't stick around to see the explosion. The thing that stuck out the most was the fact that it did not have any wings, and the pilot. The whole scenario with the pilot unbuckling his belt and running out the door. Ya i could see wheat. It gave me a midwest feel, but i am not thinking prophetic as i am just starting with these experimentations. At the same time though, this was not like a symbolic type of dream. But i am not a dream interpreter, hence why i am sharing my experiments. Hopefully i wrote that understandably.

Hmmm, i am looking at pictures of cedar. You may possibly be right. I am not going to put my finger on any of the 3 mentioned options. I will give it a possibility.

I understand some of the symbology related to it and i have not revealed some of the rest of the dream which involves symbology related to my life.

I didn't have much of a memory of wings either.

Sorry if it seems like I'm avoiding describing this. I want to know what you know so I don't make false memories for you.

I reviewed this with my girlfriend immediately when i woke up. I have a pretty good hold on the memory. She also had an interesting dream relating to our life. But as this is more personal and something that may cause us angst with an issue we are currently dealing with i don't want to talk about it! lol.

I've experimented with Mugwort before. I found that it made my dreams more vivid and colorful, and enhanced recall. I also tended to awake feeling very well rested and clear headed.

It certainly didn't make my dreams more prescient, however. If anything, my mugwort dreams were more surreal and irrelevant to the real world than my normal dreams.

The increased "awareness" in my mugwort dreams suggests to me that it might be a useful tool for lucid dreaming, but I doubt it has any ability to aid in prescience or prophecy. That's not really what mugwort is for. It's more just for calming you down and giving you a very good night sleep with pleasant and colorful dreams - not prophetic ones!

Anyways, I highly recommend mugwort for:

a) People who don't usually have/remember dreams, and would like to enhance recall
b) People who dream in black and white and would like more colorful dreams.
c) People who have trouble sleeping, or wake up feeling groggy and unrested.

In tea an hour or so before bed is the best way. Also, if you smoke hookah (shisha) you might consider mixing mugowrt into your smoking blend. It has a very mellow, soft flavor, and counter-acts the harshest physiological effects of the nicotine in the tobacco (increased heart-rate, etc.), so that you can smoke right before bed without keeping yourself up.

Mugwort is great stuff. A must have for any budding herbalist.

Thank you for the advice. We have been using it as a cleansing agent, and i have eaten some of the leaves. I was reading about it being used shamanicly, tool for astral projection and or for an increase in prophetic/psychic ability.

If you can get your head around it, fasting whilst drinking mugwort tea can be interesting. The dreams do seem to become more symbolic, but also, meditation during the 2nd & 3rd days becomes powerful. The symbolism of the dreams sort of sticks with you into something like a half awake, half lucid dream type of state.
I've never fasted longer than 3 days. I'm not sure it'd be a healthy thing to do, but after 3 days, you get a strange kind of energy boost. I doubt I'd be able to get to sleep the 4th night if I didn't eat a light meal before bed.
An even better way to do it is to sleep during the day & meditate at night. The dark & peace seem to make it easier to focus inward.

Thanks for the suggestion. Today is day 3. So i think i am going to meditate with this tonight. I have been cutting weight recently so my diet is somewhat tethered off. Fasting, well i guess i can do it for a few hours! lol. I do enjoy meditating at night as well. I am going to try out your suggestion tonight and i will relay my results here after.

Was the field on the right or left? For me it was on the right.

No roads. There was a log house. I could say that was on the right of me. the forest was behind me, when we ran into the forest it was directly in front of us. i could also say there were trees lining the right side of the prairie.

Then it's a different place.

Explain to me your dream. We may have a difference in symbolic meaning. I am now curious as to what you saw.
