Drinking a cup of tea before bed can help your mind and body relax so you can fall asleep faster. There is also a fun practice you can do to add to your dreamwork making this an extra special sleep and dream tool!
Teas for Sleep & Dreams
- Chamomile: Known as a natural remedy for sleeplessness. Drink this when having trouble falling asleep.
- Blue lotus: Enhances lucid dreams and deepens the dream visions you receive.
- Passion flower: Good for the nervous system and promotes deep relaxation. It is said to enhance the pineal gland too which is spiritually known as the seat of the spirit or the soul.
Now if you want to take it a step further into dreamwork try skipping the store bought bags of tea or steepers and let your leaf’s roam around your cup. Drink the tea with intention as you journal and think of a question you want to bring up in your dream. Practice seeing what shapes form in your cup and then see how these symbols or themes show up in your dreams for added clarity.
Dreaming the message that comes from the tea leaves makes it extra powerful as you get to experience the answer from your subconscious.
Give that a try and if you do tag me in your tea cups!
