LUCIDIMINE - A Lucid Dream Enhancer

LUCIDIMINE – A Lucid Dream Enhancer

Derek Lee (MA in Developmental Psychology from San Francisco State University) is the founder of the Company (Luciminal LLC 2013) whose stated purpose is:

“Luciminal Nootropics is a cognitive-enhancement start-up offering formulations of nutritional supplements with evidenced-based performance augmentation on mental tasks. Nootropics, or smart-drugs, are rapidly becoming noticed by those seeking peek performance for both the body and mind. Our goal is to make nootropic supplementation as common-place as “energy drinks.”Unlike traditional mental enhancers (caffeine, amphetamines, etc.), most nootropic supplements appear to support the brain by making it healthier over time.”

I first used Lucidimine on Oct. 10,2018 to induce a lucid dream and the results were presented in a the previous blog “LUCIDIMINE – A Dietary Supplement that enhances Lucid Dreaming”.

So far my experience has been positive and I am sleeping as good as I ever have. I will continue with my research into the product.

At present the product is not available on Amazon as the owner of the company, Derek Lee, is relocating the family business in another state. As soon as I know  I will be announcing when Lucidimine is available. In the meantime I will post the results of my research on this site approximately once per week

 

 

LUCIDIMINE – The 2nd Use Oct. 15, 2018

Awoke at 1:30 AM, did some work online and at 3 AM took one 6 mg Lucidimine pill. My intention was to have a lucid dream about flying or my ancestors. Neither happened, but I did have a lucid dream (1.5 on a scale of 0 to 5) involving 2 older second cousins and one of their husbands.

BACKGROUND

Back in the summer of 2017, on the original homestead of our Great Grandmothers (Mary (SCHNEPEL) HUMBKE – Blog # 15, I had met with her granddaughters (Gloria FONTAINE b. 1937, Gladys FONTAINE b. 1934) and her husband Art MOWAT b. 1933.

Refer to Blog #14 for information on the girls’ grandmother Alvina (HUMBKE) FONTAINE who was the second youngest sister off my grand father, Ernest HUMBKE Sr.

SETTING – TIME

The time setting of the dream was in the 1950s, but the 3 participants (Roger, Gloria, Gladys, and Art) were there present ages of 75, 81, 84 & 85. Gloria had married Dan MOWAT who passed away in 2006, but I had never met him. Dreams are not always logical.

SETTING – PLACE

Family homeThe family home of Lawrence and Marvalin (VANOUCK) HUMBKE built by Lawrence, his brother and relatives in 1937 on his parents [Ernest and Mary (WESTENFELD) HUMBKE’s] farm.

The dream takes place in the home of my father and mother on my grandfather’s farm. The roads, weather and surroundings were all 1950s and I was visiting my two second cousins to get information in order to write a blog on the girls” grandparents (Dave & Alvina (HUMBKE) FONTAINE Blog #14.

It was winter and there was a terrible blizzard that dumped three feet of snow. The four of us were stranded for the next two days in the cozy two bedroom home.

The Humbke family home in 1950 when 3 bedrooms and a pantry were added to make room for a girl, five boys, a wash machine, deep freeze, numerous work clothes and footwear.

THE LUCID DREAM

The four of us passed time in social conversation getting to know each other and shoveling snow. Two days later Gloria had to return to her job as a nurse; farm life resumed; and I returned to Edmonton. As much as I would like to write about what we talked about specifically, it is very difficult to do. It seems all conversations were of a general social type. I have yet to gain the skill of asking question about life in previous times.

The fact that we were all 75 to 85 years of age relating in a physical environment of the mid 1950s was illogical and confusing, as dreams can be.

A SECOND LUCID DREAM

 

Barbara (HUMBKE) KUSK 1937 – 1982

Later in the afternoon, about 2:30 PM, while i.e. was having a nap, I had a second very short lucid dream in which I was studying at the University of Alberta. All of a sudden Barbara (HUMBKE) KUSK, a first cousin, who had been a victim of cancer in 1982 at the age of 45, walked by. I was very surprise, but managed to call out her name and she came back to talk with me. She looked great, mid-twenties, with a short black haircut.

I was short of words so we said little other than her asking where my older sister, Rose Marie (HUMBKE) PETERS, was. I answered and she was on her way.

My memories of Barbara were that she was the person who helped my big sister Rose Marie take care of a 5-year old hyper active little boy (me) when I started grade 1 at the one room, grade 1 to 9, Verdun school. At school, I was constantly in trouble running away or starting fires.

This dream re-energized my memories of Barbara as a kindhearted and caring individual.

CONCLUSIONS

There is no doubt in my mind that these two dreams occurred because of me doing research on specific ancestors. At this time I believe that Lucidimine also affects my ability to lucid dream, but that my intent and active research play a larger part.

One fact that I have experienced is that in these dreams I have only seen and heard individuals. This has definitely been a very positive experience, but I know touch (i.e. shaking hands or a hug) are somethings I want to experience in the future.

Smell, more than any other sense, brings back intense memories and I did get a very slight scent for a millisecond from Barbara (HUMBKE) KUSK which was unique and positively enhanced the experience. I have often heard that the best way, to bring back memories of past events and people, is through smell and that the house coat of a mother, who has passed, is highly valued by her daughters.

The scientific reason for this fact is that when a smell enters the nose it is processed by the olfactory bulb which is next to and communicates directly your amygdala and hippocampus. These are the regions of the brains that process memories and emotions.

Do you disagree or agree with the statement above? Do you remember the smell of a home you have lived in for a long time? What part does smell play in falling in love?

    I am familiar with lucid dreaming as I have previously experienced myself, however I did not know that it was something which you could induce. I found your post and results quite fascinating and I love how you set the scene and really explained the details and referred us to previous posts.

    I do agree with your last point about smell, I do feel that smell is such a powerful sense and can bring about many memories and emotions, I do think it isn’t given enough credit or recognition.

      Hi Hannah,

      Thanks for your kind comments. I will be using Lucidimine for the 3rd time this week and reporting the results on this site. 

      I believe the substance in Lucidimine,  which is most likely to  influence my dreaming, is Galantamine. If you research that substance you will find some recognized Lucid Dreamer advocate its use.

      Best regards,

    Hi Roger,

    this is an interesting post. I have to say that I love psychology and the topic- dreams. That is something that still needs to be discovered- moreexperiments, more research. Of course, the problem is that it belongs also toour other part that we still can’t determine at full – conscience, thoughts,mind. To be understood, one has to search in fields like philosophy,psychology, religion, spirituality and probably more of them. Lucid dreams areespecially interesting because some claim that they got their finest ideas thanor they could ’touch’, feel their relatives or members of family that passedaway.

    I also believe that smell has a great power to evoke memories, even the ones wetotally forgot to have. Sounds are also important to the outcome of the dream.For example, if we hear rain outside or thunder there’s a possibilty that wewill have some element related to it in our dream.

    But, I noticed that in my case – the fastest way for relating with somememories is scent. Of course, it is also a mix with other senses, but somehowdominant.

    Thanks for this post, I’m curious if you later get some new experiences in yourdreams by using this product,

      Dear Strahinja,

      Thanks for taking the time to make a detailed comment. I have always been interested in  dreaming and would have pursued it in University, but at that time it was not considered a topic of academic interest and courses. I did manage to take a Creativity course which did devote a substantial amount of time to studying the possible influence of dreaming. 

      I will be taking one Lucidimine once a week for five weeks to see if there is a consistent isolated affect. Taking the product has not affected my normal sleep as of yet.

      My next report should come out around Oct. 25, 2018,

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for sharing a comprehensive review on Luciminal Nootropics and proved it in someway that this natural supplement has shown positive result that it really works. Well I have to admit that I’m a litte bit curious what this natural supplement has to offer. But If I may ask, I do have an insomia problem, will this natural supplement aggravate my condition? If so then maybe I shouldn’t take it.

      Hi Glenda,

      It certainly has not affected my sleep, but I have been told to cut the tablet in half and take 3mg of Galantamine, which is the substance that activates neurons in the mind, if I have problems getting to sleep.

      I believe the strength of intention you have to lucid dream, is the most important factor. Reading about and totally immersing yourself in Lucid Dreaming appears to create more dreams that you remember and the possibility of lucidity. Even then I can only get to a 2 of 5 on a lucidity scale and I want to get deeper. That is why I am experimenting with supplements.

    This is a very interesting article. I have experienced in my dreams interacting with others by talking, touching, and I do hear sounds. However, I never had the sensation of taste. As for smells, I have been in places where someones perfume/cologne triggers a memory of a loved one or someone close to me. Even the smell of certain foods can reminds me of different places I lived or visited. Have you ever had the sense of flying or falling in a dream?

      Yes I experienced flying as a youth and young adult, but not during the last 40 years. One reason I am studying Lucid Dreaming is to acquire the skill of flying when and to wherever I want to.

I have had an reaction to smell in and out of my dreams. I think it is amazing that our senses can be fully active during our dream state. Have you ever experience the feeling of falling or flying in your dreams?

      Hi,

      I appreciate your interest in dreaming and your comments on smell. My experience is that just a minute odor can take me back to an intense, distinct emotional feeling I last experience 50 years ago – both in dreams and while conscious.

      Yes, I have experienced flying and falling in my dreams, but mostly as a young boy and teenager. I am now age 75 and one of my main objectives is to fly in a lucid dream where I have control. I will be shouting about it from the rooftops when I achieve that objective.
