Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm glad to hear that at least it was a pleasant experience for you...but the question remains...do you feel rested?
To tell you the truth I have not have heard of the specific product you mention--but I have taken Dr. prescribed sleep aids as well as valerian root, kava and melatonin--not all at the same time of course.
Based on my experiences (not so much for melatonin), but definitely with the valerian and the kava kava....they felt "pharamaceutical-strength" to me in comparison.
I think initially I had a similar experience to yours, but as my body adapted it would just put me in an almost non-REM knock-out sleep (not really good) or over time, nothing at all.
Again, are you rested or to elated to be rested?...just curious....

I ask that because in a restricted point of view you can have experienced it due to auto-suggestion, but in a open mind point of view, people that become awaken to new realities develop (or simply dont castrate them) new abilities to accept and see behind the known-reality.
Atm i am struggling with this question. I've having some proofs of things that i didnt believe before, but i am not yet fully convinced that this is because i want them to happen or because i am open to them and so i can "see" better...

Right, i have real trouble sleeping, i have crohns disease, and even though its not so bad now, pre-op i used to suffer agony with it in the early hours of the morning, and ive not really been able to kick the habit of staying up late. I take occasional nitol to help me sleep, but not too often because of the addictive properties.
Anyway, last night, i thought id try something different. "Kalms sleep", they promise to "promote refreshing natural sleep". They contain,180mg of valerian extract, 64mg of passiflora extract,88mg wild lettuce extract, and small amount of vervain and hops per dose. I had also consumed a couple of glasses of red wine, however it does only suggest that consuming excessive amount of alcohol, be avoided.
I spent the night embarking on an hallucinatory adventure, (ive never taken hallucinogens), although in not sure that they were hallucinations, i dont know what happened to me. At one point my body (or was it my being or spirit) felt like it was spinning around very fast like a top, it wasnt scary, in fact, i felt safe and it felt quite exciting and for a moment i felt like i was about to burst out of the ceiling of my bedroom, but i bottled out at the last minute and stopped it.
I felt as though, i spent the whole night in other places, other realities but also kept coming back to my room to awaken feeling elated and excited. I not gonna make up stuff and say i met exotic creatures or spirits or anything, because if truth be told i dont really remember the full details now, (i wish id written it all down at the time), but i remember how bizarre it all felt and excited and felt when i woke up.
I just wanted to post to see if anyone else had had this experience with something that i thought was so innocent. I havnt exagerrated any of this and i dont normally post things like this.
It was crazy,people, one of the weirdest things that has ever happened to me if not the weirdest.
