I took two Calea Z. capsules and 3 mg melatonin about an hour ago. I feel relaxed and aware— similar to how I might feel after a CBD joint. I feel more centered and focused, and more in tune with the sensations and tensions in my body. There is a lot of tension.
Brief 5 minute meditation before bed. Going to bed at about 10:30. Tension in temples after meditating. Intend to listen to calming music for sleep.
I slept well, and my dreams were more memorable, vivid, and cohesive. The “storyline” held together better and made a bit more sense than many other dreams I've had before. My favorite part was that in one dream I was on the beach on a warm day in California, and the sensation of laying in the sand in the sunlight was so wonderful and vivid and happy. It’s usually hard for me to wake up in the morning, and it was even a bit harder than usual today. Next time I’ll try when I don’t have work the next day.
Before sleep, I experienced some meditative contemplation which was pleasant and yielded some important realizations. My energy feels more balanced this morning.
