For contacting the dead in a dream, i have been told that star anise (not regular anise) seeds, althaea leaves, and acacia leaves are burned as incense in the room where you will be sleeping. Add some myrrh resin to the mix, for its hypnotic qualities. Star anise is used in many "psychic vision" type formulas, althaea is said to produce "helpful visions" or to aid one in contacting "good spirits," and acacia is the prime classical herb for contact with the dead. Some folks who wish to contact the dead in trance states will set out a clear crystal glass bowl of fresh water to which they add several drops of Florida Water or a type of cologne made with kananga flowers (a.k.a. ylang ylang flowers; used in Asia in funerary rites). They then dip a branch of acacia leaves (the ferny-leaved kind, which can be used as an aspergillum) into this and sprinkle the water around as they call on the person to appear to thm in reverie or in a dream. You could use dried acacia leaves for this if fresh ones were not available. Performing such a ritual while burning the above herbal-resin incesne mixture would be a good way to induce dreams of the dead. Good luck, and let us know what happens if you or your friend try these things. © 1998 catherine yronwode (firstname.lastname@example.org)
