Nope, I have never taken anything. Never been drunk, never smoked weed either.
Same as me! I’ll let you know how it goes 🌼
lol Im surprised @ernst never smoked weed, seeing as he used to do BMX, where I grew up, the BMX track was where everyone smoked lol.
I have tons of experience with plant medicines from a very young age. I think mushrooms are a fantastic teacher. I think that the method you are going about is a good idea, really small doses first, and work your way up to a large one. The difference of dose with mushrooms has quite a profound effect, as large doses can be earth shattering and life altering.
100mg is a great way to get accustomed to the vibe of the mushroom, I would start with that. Go 250mg next time, and then 500mg. 500mg with a nice mushroom is perfect, it gives you a great euphoria, taps you into your inner strength, confidence, and shows you how to really enjoy life etc...
The first 45 mins when the mushrooms come on are uncomfortable, not anxiety provoking like weed, just uncomfortable "i am shifting realities now" type of a feeling. Past that point when you hit the peak, it feels incredible, smooth, wonderful. No need to sit in meditation, do things you enjoy!
The large doses (2-3g+) are something totally different. It can give the body more energy than it can handle. It can reset the brain. Even if you have a "bad" or "nightmarish" experience on a large dose, afterwards you can feel incredible for quite some time. If you are in a good vibe it can simply amaze you. I wouldn't go into mushrooms looking to do shadow work intentionally, mushrooms are meant for enjoyment, that's where their healing is. I think peyote is much better for healing the psyche in an emotional release type of way.
It can be difficult to fall asleep, so its better to eat them earlier in the day. If you are not having a good time and want it to be over, alcohol curbs the effects and can help you sleep. Weed on the other hand increases the effects of mushrooms.
mushrooms are truly magical, I would take 500mg once a week for 6-7 months straight and it helped me tremendously.
I never road bmx. I just did road racing.
How's your Moon doing?
I was curious on your thread simply because I've seen many people use that, alongside Ayahuasca, and did not see any improvement when it comes to a honest understanding of their subconscious. I have seen many believe that their wants and desires are actually messages from spirit guides...
Have you tried journaling and getting your dreams written?
I like using Ketu bija mantra for going in my subconscious (besides what I get i my dreams)- I write everything in a journal in my computer. I also like doing Yoga Nidra.
