I wrote on programmed dreams a few weeks ago. One of the recommendations from the doctor who instructs in programmed dreams is to take, at bedtime, 100mg of B6…200mg if you're willing to risk a little ruckus in dreamland. (My words, not his.) So I've been experimenting with taking one tablet and of late, two. Insomnia has been one of my long standing TMS issues so I am very cautious with anything that may disrupt my sleep at this point in the game. I'm happy to report that even with 200 mg, I'm sleeping just fine. And yes, I think the dreams are getting more interesting. And for the first time, last night I actually wrote down about the dream without turning on a light or trying to see what I was writing. I just wrote down key thoughts and words. It's funny. After a vivid dream, I always think I'll remember the dream. And then poof! Like a vapor in the wind, it disappears into airy fairy land. This dream was no different. I forgot it when I woke up. And then I looked at my jotted notes. The dream is still pretty fragmented but the message was loud and clear. If you've read some of my other posts, you know I've been stepping back from a close friend of many years. The essence of this dream made it very clear that I've been packing a LOT of rage (no, not anger, rage) toward this friend. And toward MYSELF for not speaking up. Dr. Sarno's words of truth are deepening in my heart. Thanks to Mermaid's post today about how journalling helped her with her healing, I'm going to explore this relationship more by writing about it. (I love how timely posts show up here!) And is it any wonder that I've been dealing with a growing headache? My headaches can be describe, rather crudely as "All wretch and no vomit" as Alan Watts put it. I'm hoping as I deal with this issue, one source of the headaches that have plagued me for so many years, can be done away with. So anyhoo. That's my update. If you're curious, give the B6 a try. It was about $6 for a bottle of 100 so it's cheap to try.
