A couple of friends have been telling me that it was a drug that can help you connect with the universe, or a weaker variation of DMT. Now I know a little bit about DMT and what it can do and that every living thing contains it, and that they are good friends of mine so they wouldnt try and fuck me over. I just want to make sure that it\’s ok to do. I dont plan on doing it for a while if I do it soon, like maybe say a couple months. So should I go for it or what?
You should absolutely go for it. I was very nervous before going in to my first shroom trip (worried about a bad trip, etc.), and here I am now several years later standing as a very huge advocate of psychedelics period. Shrooms are a very safe, clean, fun, and great way to get out of your mind and experience the universe in a new light. I would recommend for all people to try psychedelics at least once. I believe it would be the quickest route to a better world for all. Life changing experience every time, and when I say life changing i mean that in a positive way.
My first trip I took too much and had a trip that bordered on both ecstasy and a living nightmare. I am not telling this to you to scare you but rather to inform you. One be more weary and maybe take less if you tend to think a lot, it’s what sent me into a hole. Two, set & setting! So aside from taking a large dose, we were doing it at night and my friends decided to take a walk in a dark woods. Once deep into the woods is where I started to freak out.
So! Do it in a comfortable place, preferably lit, with good friends. Friends who will watch over you if you slip into a “hole.” You’ll be fine I’d assume if you follow this advice, I remember at the beginning, man, I felt a ridiculous ecstasy full of laughter and joy. It’s weird the same realization that “I was the universe” which brought me so much comfort and alleviated my insecurities led to me thinking, “oh shit, I’m the universe, which means nothing else exists.” Not the happiest line of thought to follow.
TL;DR Set & setting and in worst case scenario remember you’ll be sober soon and all your “rational” creepy thoughts are going to seem incredibly irrational once sober.
Also, once again don’t want to scare you so, relax. If you aren’t prone to negative thoughts and you stay out of creepy woods you’ll be fine!
Good luck, have fun. Report back if you have an interesting time!
I’m voting yes for you. Shrooms can be very intense but I think it’s worth it. I’ve only done them once, and I took a bit too many for a first timer, so I had an incredible trip. I guess I could say it was a bad trip because I’m pretty sure I got some minor PTSD from it, Lol. Like for two weeks after I did it, even the slightest thought about that night would make me nauseous. I don’t know, it wasn’t really a scary trip it was just so intense and I had no clue what was going on, but if I had a chance to do it all over I would because I loved just having the experience. In the end it was truly life changing and incredible. I’m waiting to do them again quite soon and I’m really excited to do so.
I highly suggest not being in the presence of anyone that isn’t on shrooms. It really does bring it down.
Everything below this line is just about my trip, if you’re interested:
I pissed my pants at one point. Lmao. I was tripping and I felt like I needed to calm myself down and relax and when I did I felt this warm energy flow all around me, but when I woke up the next morning I realized that the warm energy was really me pissing myself. That was before I peaked though, just a funny part about it. The scary part was me losing touch with reality completely, I laid in a bed and watched myself evolve from an amoeba to a dinosaur. It was fucking insane. And I forgot about my physical reality, I had just tripped for 4 hours and then woke and realized what had been going on, I completely lost it.The thought of me being dead didn’t even occur to me, it was like I just had never existed. Like I remember having this intense feeling of relief just being back in a physical form where I could pick up objects and things weren’t all up to me. And that might sound scary but it gave me a new respect for my body and my life in general, sort of a “Don’t take life for granted” type thing. Sorry I just like to share that because it was the most life changing part of it. But Honestly I could talk about that night for a very long time, sooo many things happened to me, or what I felt like was an insane amount of things happened. OH! Also a notable thing was that my friend said I was being telepathic! I was with one other person on shrooms and one other person not on shrooms, so a total of three of us, and the person not on shrooms kept telling us (the two on shrooms) that we were finishing each others sentences, and that at one point I didn’t even say anything and my friend responded out loud. But in our minds we were just talking and having a normal conversation. It was really awesome.
