The African dream root Silene Capensis is known as the shamanic medicine of the white ways/paths. This root is used by African shamans for accessing the dream state. This sacred plant which shamans of the eastern cape province of South Africa use has the ability to induce remarkably vivid dreams. This plant is not just used for vivid dreams, but as a divination tool. 

This obscure flowering species is regarded by shamans of the South African region as a type of Ubulawu (medicinal root) that they call Undela Ziimhlophe, which translates literally as "white paths" or "white ways." It is suspected that this sacred plant's oneirongenic (dream-inducing) activity is likely due to triterpenoid saponins contained within its roots. Relatively small amounts of root (250 mg range) are reported to be active. The plant exerts only minimal alterations in waking consciousness, yet the effects upon the dream state can be profound.

How to prepare Silene Capensis:
Method 1: Half a teaspoon (about .25grams) is mixed with 6-8oz. of water. This is drunk early in the morning upon waking, while the stomach is empty. When you feel hungry it is safe to have breakfast.

Method 2: A full teaspoon (about .50 grams) is mixed with 8-10oz. of water, and the water blended until a froth is formed. Keep sucking the froth off the container until you feel bloated with froth, and then go to bed.

After ingestion and results:

The effects usually manifest during sleep as prophetic lucid dream states that are rich with significance. Individuals do not usually encounter any effects when awake, although there was one report of someone perceiving wavy lines of light in the air about twenty minutes after consuming the root. The dream state is often compared to going under water by the Xhosa.

Your dreams will become exceptionally colourful, and you will remember them vividly on awakening. To sum up the shamanic advice: If you focus on a question you want answered first, the answer will come to you in your dreams – from the wisdom of the ancestors. A good idea is to keep a notebook handy for writing down the results. Ubulawu is traditionally used to access dream-time and to communicate with ones ancestors.

Drink it on an empty stomach, and then when you feel hungry, you can eat. This will give the alkaloids time to travel through your system. The effects will be felt that night. The alkaloids travel quite slowly through the blood system, so it won't get excreted out during the day. Before going to sleep, focus on a question you want answered by the ancestors. One of the ancestors will appear in your dream with the answer. This plant is not just used for vivid dreams, but as a divination tool. The alkaloids from using some over a few days would build up in your system.

Precautions :
Use the recommended amounts only; the actives are active in these doses. Larger amounts will have a purgative action, however there are no fatalities or harmful side effects reported, only a good vomiting and cleansing out of the stomach. Small doses over several days will affect even the most insensitive person, so there is no need to take a large amount.
