    You could try a dream pillow to control this. I would use Calendula officinalis for deeper sleep.
    Just buy 1 euro-dollar worth of dried flowers put it in a cheap sock and put the sock into your pillow.Chemicals from the smell go into your brain and you may sleep deeper for say 1 month.

    I’ve heard of using lavender from Carol and Mikey which seemed to help her, and my friend who is a nurse recommended me using melatonin which made my dreams even more vivid than they already were. However, I’ve never heard of the method that you suggested to help me remain in a deep state of sleep. My fear is that I don’t want to be dependent on anything and according to others, remembering my astral travels should be considered a gift as I was meant to have this ability. Yet I would happily be able to hand this ‘gift’ to someone else in a heartbeat for no trade off.

    I’ve held back on sharing a lot recently because I’m trying to listen to others and their experiences. But I’ve been keeping logs of the things I’ve been experiencing each night and will share them once I feel comfortable enough :)

    I have never heard of dream pillows being addictive. I have used self made Calendula dream pillows for years because of very bad insomnia and i do not believe it was addictive since it kept on working.
    You can also use other herbs to enhance and control the effect. Also your gift you should be able to control it to turn it on and off .
    • Anise – Repels nightmares, but be sure to use sparingly.
    • Calendula – Used to induce restful sleep.
    • Catnip – Increases restful sleep. Especially good for babies and children.
    • Cedar – Repels bad dreams.
    • Chamomile – Used for relaxation and pleasant dreams.
    • Hops – Aids in restful sleep and healing.
    • Jasmine – The dried flowers are useful for romantic and erotic dreams, especially for women.
    • Lavender – These flowers have the ability to ease stress, soothe, and relax. A simple pillow made only with lavender can be simply perfect.
    • Lemon Balm – A known for it’s ability to reduce anxiety and insomnia. Also valuable for relieving headaches and stress.
    • Mugwort – Protection.
    • Mullein – Guards against nightmares.
    • Rose petals – Adds loving and peaceful thoughts to dreams.
    • Rosemary – Repels bad dreams, but use sparingly due to the strong scent.

    I have heard of people using essential oils like lavender, tea tree, and lemongrass because they are known to help relax and calm the nerves which lead to a deeper sleep :) Melatonin, on the other hand, is much more helpful because melatonin triggers a chemical in your body (which is also called melatonin) that can make you go to sleep faster.

    Getting to sleep is usually not a problem for me but staying that way after the periodic waking I experience is more an issue. Bit of a problem as old farts are recommended to get plenty of sleep but what do you do when you've avoided stimulants such as booze, caffeine and eating, recommended triggers for poor sleep I've had since my 30s and now I'm 71 and a half. I know plenty of folk who shovel a huge dinner down their necks unbelievably late in the evening and sleep like they're dead - lucky buggers! :D If I eat even a little bit of regular food in the evening my sleep patterns can be jinxed.

    Of course the downside for the easy-eaters is that they're often as fat as bacon pigs and at risk from all the complications resulting from being overweight! mac at 130lbs doesn't face those issues, thank goodness, but getting good, restful sleep is often a pain. :p:D:)
