I sorta wanted to keep his kind of discussion that is to do with drugs away from the main topics as I dont really think we all want this site to be focused on drugs, but I don't see any harm in keeping it in this topic. I personally have stopped doing drugs except for the occasional session with weed, but I figure the memories are worth sharing.

I would like to share my first and only mushroom trip, it was a pretty heavy one. My parents were away for 2 weeks and my sister had gone out to the movies for the night with some new boyfriend, so I figured now was a good a time as any to have my mates round and just have fun with drugs. My mate gave me about 6 to start off with, and things were pretty strange for the first hour or so. I can't exactly remember what happened, but during this trip I never hullucinated anything or went into a strange trippy world as cartoons like to illustrate to us. Instead what I felt after a while was complete and absolute loss of ego.

After an hour one of my friends gave me about 6 more and this is where things got really interesting. I swear when I thought of something like where is my wallet, it would be in my hand instantly. If I wondered what the time was, one of my mates would ask whats the time. Then things got scary, it seemed like everything that happened in the room was being controlled by my thoughts. I kept on testing this idea, I kept asking whats the time in my head, and one of my friends kept on asking whats the time, no one was answering him. Everyone in the room was frozen in what they were doing. If I thought move, one would move. Even now looking back this just doesnt seem possible on drugs, but its what I recall experiencing. At one point during this scene I thought I understand whats going on, they move when I think. As I thought this, people were looking at me and smiling, clapping their hans saying "Alright, now he gets it!"

Yeah, it got weird. So weird that I decided to go to my room and not move at all, I was scared that I might be wrong and didnt want to take any actions. Then 4 hours of this happened. I started to doubt that I had a past, that my memories were just fabrications I had made up, that I had actually lived for a far longer time. Then I stopped beleiving that I had ever lived at all, I didnt call myself dead, I just didnt believe in the concept of life anymore. I stopped believing that I was real, that anything was real at all. And then it got more intense, for another 4 hours of pure angst in real time, it literally felt like I was in that state for eternity, and I thought I would never come back to my body because well, there was no such concept anymore.

wow great idea for a thread Jack ,
and what an interesting experience , I have had similar experiences with shrooms ,Both completely different I found that the setting and intent play a very important role in what type of experience one is to have,
I live in Ireland and near were I live are the Wicklow Mountains (although compared to any other country there really only hills)but everyone here calls them mountains so thats kind of stuck
After getting familiar with the psychedalic experience a friend and I set out early one morning (about 15 years ago now) to our mushy picking spot high up mushy mountain , its a beautiful vast desolate spot that has a lovely forest and a beautiful valley as far as the eye can see .Anyway it was Mushroom season again and we picked a beautiful morning there was a slight mist al along the terrain although it didn't make picking any more difficult
we were equipped with a small carry bag with a hot flask of tea , and a biscuit tin that had a number of pre rolled joints (just because its hard to roll when tripping balls ) not that a joint even makes a difference it doesn't really but was nice at the time
So we picked our shroom at least 160 liberty caps , went to the forest found a spot that looked tranquil ,you know that forest enchanted spot that resonates beauty? thats the spot I found , got the flask out added the shrooms and as gollum would say "we drank its whole":)
after drinking it we set our intent which was to point our awareness at our awareness , I had a little pocket book of philosophy on me at the time and inside was an Alan Watts Quote that resonated quite well , it went something like "there no going towards it , there's no going away from it I am it so I become who I am" well we sued this as kind of a mantra or affirmation
This is were things got real interesting the gurus talk of stillness and how silence speaks and stuff well that's what happened we became one with everything the forest the sun the rate of vibration was euphoric , my friend and I didn't even need to speak words we seemed to know so therefore didn't need to speak , I could feel the life of everything emanating around me the trees breathing the sun shinning it was as do I had stepped outside of time and was experiences a perfect moment , I undertand what jesus meant when he said "I AM...The SUN....of god" (not that I am religious)but I was defo spiritual after this experience when we got back to my house much later we got out a couple of my guitars and played astonishingly good creating beautiful harmonious sounds (although some might argue that we were on drugs an none of it was real) but I say fuck them hehe they can keep the narrow viewpoint and hope it keeps them warm,
This experience was spiritual a huge eye opener to a much larger and brilliant reality and I knew that there was so much more to reality than appearances so became a seeker setting about a life of meditation and seeking
Yea so setting and intent I found is very important
I wonder why I havent gone back up again in such a long time? O yer wife kids pmr attachments disstractions and all that jazz fuck sake what am I doing ? I should get my ass back up there :)
Just messing about sometimes I think I am funny cant help it , ya so running out of time I have things to do but I would like to post again here and share some more shroom experiences such as becoming an orb with 360 vision and having a contracted fear based experience in the city and such :ugeek:

Hey Jack, did you consider the possibility that mushrooms don't make you hallucinate? Instead, maybe they switch off some part of the brain that acts as a filter to stop the NPR from streaming though freely and thus creating a very confusing physical reality.

I don't necessarily believe this to be true myself but I don't think it can be outright dismissed as a possibility. However, I do outright dismiss these experiences as proof of anything other than a trip induced from a substance labeled a hallucinogen. :)

Great read, really wish I had a trip like that. Makes me want to climb my nearest volcano and do a shroom tip at the top, you can see my entire city and more from up there. I think the huge problem for me was going to my room alone and trying to go to sleep or something, it just turned hellish.

Hey Jack ya my last few experiences which was a real long time ago now was of profound inner stillness I mean my mind would be completely still and I would deem them optimal experiences I mean exactly what there made for ,
but it didn't start out that way for me man , when I was a young gun ya i had limited self concepts , fear and ego attachments
and I would have an experience that would be fear based and wacky just like yours man , one time I swear I was the living embodiment of a fearful ego , couldn't grasp the present I had nothing but fear to keep as a companion , I was in my friends house in his room and I lost the ability to cognize anything lol funny now when I look back but it was strange man
also I walked about a shopping center one time in awe of how people were just so robotic walking about with fear in there eyes , funny thing was they AL looked to be in a trance and so disconnected form each other and in a race were I just felt like love yet I am on what they would call drugs :lol: but i was still unsure of myself , this was before I learned about setting and approach and how that it is 90% of what your gonna experience ,when the reaction (for lack of a better expression) happens its the unfoldment of your current state so ritual is the way I go
A fucking volcano man , wow awesome that be a very still experience talk about the earths pulse , is that close to were you live ?, is the vegetation near by ? in any case that would be a grand place in you found a spot you deemed beautiful and tranquil , and comfortable
If you ever decide to try it again , maybe you wont maybe you will , its helpful to reevaluate your self concepts , ie look and see if there is limitations in your self concept , Its best to keep an open mind , to see oneself as unlimited yet at the same time see oneself as a baby is how I go , no chance of a ego trip that way
Its common to puke your guts up , that's ok , shamans consider this a cleansing of bad shit that has to go ,
I myself believe everyone is multidimensional and has the innate abilities of a shaman ,
But because of all the fear and misinformation on this topic I will say meditation is all that's needed and I refrain from encouraging anyone I haven't met to take something that can potentially go on the fear side depending on there believes.
alot of people are hung up on labels like "drugs""hallucinogen " and the negative essence that come with these things and would have a negative out view on life , they wont have good experiences , and if your a materialist that clings on to your concepts and believes , playing with the doors of perception I would not recommended .
I have a philosophy when dealing with altered states of consciousness or anything really be they induced by nature or meditation that is "everything is permitted ,yet nothing is true" there's no fear of falling into a belief system this way be it true or false , yet experience , ;love ,and the quality of your consciousness can grow without any dirt on it :ugeek:
so thats what I think , but I might be comleteley bonkers :lol:
:ugeek:

Im from New Zealand, in Auckland we have like 20 dormant volcanoes that havent been active for years (although recently one of them let of floads of smoke, was exciting for about a daybut nothing really happened), when your atop one of those mountains you have a better view of the city towers, and you can see other mountains a few suburbs away that are even higher that take only 20 minutes to walk up. Great for bringing a book and spending the sunday reading without any drugs at all tbh, dont know why I dont do it more often.

I was considering doing it this shroom season with my friend, he wanted to do it last year with mebut we were really slack on going out and finding shrooms, this time im hoping we canmake it happen.

It seems many people haven't really delved into this area so im going to go ahead and try to expand the topic for others who haven't done any of this stuff.

Basically talk about any sort of psychedalic experience you have had. To me its all about chasing a feeling, or idea or even a world that doesn't exist. You set out to find or feel this idea fully well knowing that it will end in failure, but you do it anyway. And then you do feel the bliss, the feeling of euphoria or perfection you were seeking, the sense of balance and peace. However as time passes you are reminded that this was always going to set in failure, the future doesn't go away and reality comes hurtling towards you. You are left in a state of despair as you try and grasp what was so real, fully knowing you will never grab it. You look back on yourself and you feel regret for falling for such a hopeless cause, and you feel once again more despair as you realise you will never feel that feeling again.

And then, it could be years ahead or weeks, but you do feel it again. Or you never do.

Salvia Divinorum.

The minute I exhaled I felt like a heavy force was pulling me down and to my right... as it was doing this I felt like I was also made out of liquid plastic and was being smeared across the room. The actual living room turned 2D and flattened at a 45o angle. this then unzipped in a piechart-like configuration. This ever increasing angle of pie shaped 'gap' in reality, swiftly revealed a side view of a vast castle wall covered in purple ivy that disappeared into a horizon view point... running alongside the wall was a translucent (best way to describe it) knight on a horse/lion beast... the clip clopping was really loud. The main sense of this was that I was having a childhood memory (???). The scene kept resetting with the similar pie chart action... another way to describe it was like I was in the binding of a book and it was closing and opening but in a cyclic action... each time it closed I was painlessly crushed with it and then stretched as it opened again from the opposite side.. All the while this was happening there was a rhythmic 'BWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMM'' sound (often heard on movie trailers) that seemed to follow the cyclic scene. This seemed to go on for about... eternity. Suddenly the piechart re-closed and zipped back up to reveal my living room once more and Kathryn giggling at me.

The first thing I said to Kath when I 'recovered' was.. 'Don't do it... because that... was not a drug... that is a key'.

The whole experience was in reality 5 minutes long. We recorded it. In the footage I am still me... I look spaced out but I am moving and talking. I even do the action with my arm of the scene resetting. So I was there... me... my own personality was there... I just wasn't experiencing me anymore... I was well away. :lol:

Are these hallucinations that you observe or do you interact like in a deep dream.

I have no experience of drugs other that drinking so this is all new to me and I am curious. They sound like very severe HI where you are a victim of what is going on and dont have the control to use the states?

Both. Literally both. I suppose you couldn't possibly imagine what it's like unless you do it.

Oh there was no control.. and I was completely unaware of my surroundings.. although I was according to the video footage... but my awareness wasn't; in the video I kept looking at Kath... but there was no kath in the experience if you know what I mean.

One interesting thing is I have recreated the experience during an OOBE... which then begs the question... was it the Salvia that caused it or was it me?

It's very much like DMT of which I have also repeated during an OOBE.

I'll write down my DMT experiences when I'm more awake. I have them on my laptop somewhere.

That sounds like a strange trip man, I have had friends try salvia as well (dairies sell it atm) and they were talking to inanimate objects thinking they were some kind of entity.

I have also had dreams where I have done drugs, in fact those psychedalic experiences were far more profound than any experience in waking life trying a drug. I have done heroin, cocaine, opium and some weird unknown rug my mind created all in dreams and I have NEVER done those drugs in my life before, yet im certain that those experiences are exactly how they would feel if I did because they were simply beyond me.

The unknown drug I tried was the most amazing, mind blowing and profound experience I have had to do with psychedalics, and it wasn't even a real drug.

Basically the dream took place in a chinese restaurant with my family, it was a formal occasion. I was young, about 12 in the dream (19 in waking life). I was not lucid, it was a fairly typical seen. I think I got nervous though, and somehow I knew that this restaurant was a front for drug dealing chinamen. There was this old chinamen sleeping at his table with his hands stretched out, a part of me just knew that this was a sign he was a dealer. I slipped a handful of cash into his pocket, and removed the drug at the same time. Its interesting because I never even looked at the drug, I had no idea what it was, I just took it.

The second I took it, the entire scene smashed with a violent shock. I got sucked out of my body, my entire body pretty much just shattered and it felt like pure energy. the entire scene was gone, it was this strange void and everything just felt... fast. When I came to my senses, I was shaking with shock in the dream restaurant next to my family. I was trying to hide the fact that I had taken drugs but the reality was I was just in pure shock, I couldn't stop shaking it had just felt too violent and too surreal. When I woke up I was still in shock.

That's very similar to this experience I posted on Astral Pulse....

the glass stem and the fractal fruit.

This morning I had a nice and interesting experience that I am allowed to share.

Instead of writing my journal entry I'll just write it new on here; my journal entries aren't very detailed nor interesting because I only write down key points.

It was a morning one, around 6am and entered it after an unscheduled trip to the toilet.

I found myself in a familiar setting that I have visited frequently - being a road that meanders around a very high wall that surrounds a city that terminates in a very beautiful ornamental garden. Massive trees line the road and surround a giant glass-house that its against the wall... very victorian looking. Outside the glass-house sat who I have regarded as my guide... having only realised this last year after noticing he/she has shown up many times in different guises throughout my life. anyway.. he was an old wise tinker/gypsy man again - he tends to do this when he is teaching me or showing me something important... or rather I project this persona onto him so that I feel like I am being taught; a typical archetype... the first time I encountered him I called him 'old man time' lol

I greeted him and he told me to sit beside him. I told him I hadn't projected or seen him in a while and that I thought he had decided to leave me to fend for myself. He gave me a thought that I was being far too 'woe me' and that I should dispense with silly ideas reminding me that I have a father who I can contact at any time who would rather hear that type of thing (I rarely phone my dad) and waved me to sit and watch what he was doing.

He had a grass stem pinched between his fingers. He started peeling away the green surface of the stem and I realised it was transparent inside. He snapped the rest of the stem at the first node and cleaned all the green off until it was revealed to be a hollow glass tube. He handed me a grass stem and asked me to repeat what he did. I peeled away the green like him and snapped off the first node but it was just translucent pith inside. He told me to try again... I tried but I failed. After about six attempts I managed to finally do it correctly. I asked him what the point of the exercise was... so he told me to to follow him into the glass-house.

Inside there were about 15 children... all dressed in little green boiler suits with pale leather skull caps, each one was carrying a fruit of some sort... some were melon-like... some were like giant bananas... one that realy grabbed my attention looked like a fractal/spiral raspberry. they placed the fruits on a long table at the rear of the glass-house and began singing an amazing song to us. It was absolutely beautiful. there weren't any words but the choral harmony and melody (of which I can remember a phrase of that I've been humming all day) just soul embracing.. I couldn't help but cry. While they were singing my guide said that the reason for making the glass stem was so that we could drink the song... but the only way was through the fruit, that these children were the result of the harvest festival and the fruit was their labour (?)

We approached the bench, he took a melon and gently slid the glass stem into it. He told me to pick a fruit. I chose the fractal raspberry and winked at the children and told me that they knew I would pick that one... 'of course they did' I thought. The spiral cells, that were at the bottom the size of a small orange and gradually got smaller as they themselves spiralled to the apex of the fruit. I stuck the stem into one of the big juicy ball cells at the base and began to suck the juice up it. It tasted absolutely amazing... like pomegranate mixed with christmasy spices (hard to describe lol) but as soon as I noticed the taste it mixed with the music like a DMT cocktail.

I instantly had the most AMAZING and indescribably profound trip that I have ever experienced. I simply can't describe it in words and started a digital painting today to emulate it... but I'm finding it pretty hard to get it right because of the multiple layers involved. There were countless different visions all happening simultaneously.

At one point I saw a HUGE floating granite pyramid tethered to hundreds of what looked like angels at a distance... when I zoomed in closer they were winged gyroscope-type vessels... themselves huge. Hundreds of seated meditating monks of some sort were lining the golden horizontal ring that surrounded the inner gyro.

At the same time I saw the same pyramid pushing through clouds in the sky above what looked like a middle eastern modern city... this one had many tiny lights dotted all over it... like lit windows.

A child was playing with a little lime green onyx pyramid in the corner. (you'll like that Lionheart! )

Many other things were seen but those were the easiest to describe.

my awareness returned to my physical but I was well under... and projected again... I was in log cabin and this time Old Man Time was sitting on the floor blissed out. I told him that I had to tell everyone on here about this. He gave me permission to do so.

Wow the pyramid sounds amazing, might inspire me to get back into this trippy sort of projection stuff, I have neglected to motivate myself for a year now, but since the release of the flaming lips new album I have taken an interest in the psychedalic experience once again.
