DOSE:
6 leaves oral Heimia salicifolia (dried)

BODY WEIGHT: 160 lb


Sinicuichi is an herb reputed (in experience reports) to enable/enhance dreaming of hearing-and-seeing of singing/chanting, and of instrumental music. After ingesting it (by eating the dry leaves, after removing leaf-stems, though these latter can be boiled as a tea), I have eventually arrived at seeing the chanters in the dream (instead of merely hearing them in the distance) --- though, indeed, I did not succeed in viewing the chanters until I started simultaneously sleeping on a bundle (as pillow) of mugwort leaves. Apparently the combination (of the two kinds of leaves, one ingested and the other slept on) is usually necessary to enable this sort of dream.

Only a few of the tiny curled-into-rolls-when-dried leaves (I eat half-a-dozen just before going to sleep) of sinicuichi are necessary to secure the effect of enhancing dreaming generally -- merely by ingesting this many leaves per night, I remember dreams well about three to five nights per week (instead of only one or two nights without them), such dreams being, moreover, more varied and more interesting than dreams had without the sinicuichi. N.B. I also take a variety of other dream-enhancing drugs (such as galantamine) and mood-enhancing (such as blue, and white, waterlily leaves) herbs along with the sinicuichi, besides keep chanting playing on my computer speakers from the internet (usually YouTube, Slavic Orthodox or Roman Catholic, playlists) while sleeping, in order to be more sure of achieving the music-effects in dreamings.
