    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    It was only very temporarily that the nightmares came back. They have been occasionally coming back but way less intense. I see there's a lot of factors involved, I see that the people I'm with day to day influence it because certain people who make me feel supported, they influence my...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    The nightmares came back but only really briefly. It's interesting cuz they started again when I started drinking a plant by myself unguided, I had a real unsettling dream that night and my energy crashed after that. I was having crazy experiences, then I had a really strong sleep paralysis...

    I left the indigenous community for about a month and was staying in the city, in the same room where I was getting haunted by the nightmares. Not only did the nightmares and troubles not come back, I been steadily getting better and better. Good feelings deepening within me. I'm back at the...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    Ronin I also want to say something about another part of your post, it's off topic but it needs to be said. I'm not telling anyone to get on a plane to the jungle. Of course there are dangers and difficulties in doing this. For me it has been the best trek I have ever made. Whether it...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    It's a little bit like this, when the westerners colonized the Americas, the two cultures coming together was like two really different worlds colliding. Today, these cultures have mixed to such a point that indigenous people use western medicine and westerners use what was once the indigenous...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    I got trust in western medicine too, I don't reject it just because it's limited. There are many areas that western medicine works way better that other types of medicine. Antibiotics for example. I experienced this thing where all my mosquito bites started getting infected. The shaman was...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    This isn't a sentiment, this is a self evident reality. What percentage of doctors do you believe have lived with indigenous cultures or worked with shamans to the extent that they have gained a genuine understanding of their system of medicine. Less than 5%. Good ethnobotanical studies are...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    I get what your saying and it's completely valid. There are so many factors involved in this and doing a dieta or any of these shamanic treatments without good guidance can be dangerous. This is what healers here deal with every day, people from all walks of life come to them for healing and the...

    Shamanic treatment healed my sleep disturbances

    My intentions are to document and share my experience since I found something that is actually working for me. What I'm experiencing here is pretty magical to me but it is fairly normal to people in the Amazon regions of Peru, people been doing this for a long, long time. I'm real happy to be...

    Adrenaline as I am about to fall asleep

    I used to get this electrical shock feeling before going into sleep paralysis all the time. This past month whenever I get into the in between wake and sleep place, I get a sudden sense of panic and jump into wake. Sometimes I might be 70% of the way into dreaming, sometimes only 10%...

    Not breathing

    It's all connected. I have been going into a sleep paralysis type state occasionally and this hypnagogic jerk for me often comes with sleep paralysis. I used to experience sleep paralysis and hypnagogic jerks regularly 10 years ago. It's almost like a buildup of psychic tension that appears in...

    Feels Like My Heart Stops, I Jolt Awake. Extremely Terrifying

    I used to get this regularly right before going into sleep paralysis. I would be paralysed so I couldn't jump back into the waking state so easily. It would feel often like my heart skipped a beat and also that I would stop breathing temporarily So this not breathing thing... I've noticed this...

    How to feel safe when your fears are irrational or inescapable

    I see that the most important first step in healing is feeling safe. Someone who has fears from physical abuse can feel safe being physically protected and able to defend themselves. What if the fears are irrational, like about paranormal things that you can't protect yourself against. How can...

I stayed up till 5 in the morning last night cuz it kept happening repeatedly. When i went to sleep at 5, I noticed that when I went into...
