  1. Yeah I agree, I think I could do the same dose alone. I just have to remind myself that it isn't a good idea to go for a walk on acid, as nice as it is
  2. This is what it did for me. Offered a fresh persepective on the issues that were causing me anxiety. Certain not IN the trip, haha! I didn't mean for a short term relief. When you put your answer, I did think to myself, 'do they mean like i'll take LSD to overcome a fleeting arising of anxiety?'. It seemed strange otherwise. But no I didn't mean like taking a paracetomol for a headache It's good to hear that psychedelics have reduced your ongoing anxiety by so much. I'm really inspired to keep going with psychedelics now, and to see what I can discover. Thanks for the responses the thread can be closed now. As for the question of having somebody to watch over me. I needed it. Infact I did have somebody looking over me, but they didn't come home til an hour into the trip, after which time I decided it was a good idea for a walk (I had planned to stay in my room). Luckily I didn't go far, but I crossed roads (Yup, crossing roads, on acid. Think CARS), and that was a stupid idea, but one I couldn't talk myself out of as it looked so gorgeous outside, and it was. I was safe this time, but if I was to go back, even on a dose of 110mg I would ensure I had someone available the WHOLE trip. Not to watch over me like a hawk, but to check on my occassionally. x
  3. I did my trip. It has helped noteably with my anxiety. But it has only been a few days so we will see about that. It's suprising to me that you don't think that anxiety reduction is a common feature of LSD, given that I'm guessing you have experience, not only that but there seems to be a scientific concensus that it does; https://www.anxiety.org/lsd-hallucinogenic-mushrooms-to-treat-anxiety-and-depression https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-07-psychedelic-microdosing-ease-anxiety-sharpen.html https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03153579 https://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/anxiety/lsd-investigated-as-an-anxiety-treatment/article/384367/
  4. I’ve done mushrooms before, three times. Once alone. First time Lsd however. I want to help ease anxiety and let go in my art more (creative purposes). side question: my provider told me I have 110 units per micro gram as a dose. Is this an okay entry level dose? Thanks in advance!
  5. What does ug stand for in lsd? Also, when you acquire it, how do you know how much you have?
  6. You sound like me a while back. Trying to do a thousand things at once and racing toward this vision as fast as possible. Self love, balance, kindness, going slowly can not be emphasised enough. whats better? Giving up entirely, or just choosing to do a single thing diligently? Give yourself a pat on the back every now and again man. You are a part of a small minority of the world trying to deepen your connection to yourself and the world. It’s a tall order and you’re doing so much better than your mind would lead you to believe. As for meditation try getting help from an app. I recommend Brightmind to you. There are meditations on pain and fear that can help a great deal. a quote for you from Augustus: “make haste! But, do it slowly”.
  7. What are a some effective strategies to overcome forgetfulness? I can endeavour to do something, like for example practice mindfulness at work, and after a couple of weeks or so, just sort of remember that I made that intention and stopped following it somewhere along the line. Also, does forgetfulness count as an ego backlash? If you think yes, please explain why you think so. Thanks!
  8. @Outer I thought that Déjà vu was one thing happening after another immediately. It feels to me like i've actually sat and imagined the current experience i'm having, months before.
  9. Sometimes i'll be in a situation, significant or mundane, be it an interview, a talk with a friend, walking down the street, and it will just feel like it's happened before. Like exactly how it's happening, but it just feels so familiar, that suddenly I feel like i'm watching on as a third person, watching something that's happened before. It's almost like I anticipated I would say these words, they would see those words, I would feel this feeling, and it's all unfolding like it has done before. It's really hard to describe but do I read into this any more or is it just a strange trick of the mind? Thanks x
  10. I am reading The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem. I read it just before I got into a six month relationship. I was half-assing it. The relationship has negatively impacted my self-esteem and now I wish to stick with it. I feel that self-esteem really is very important. Nathaniel Branden has me convinced. Are there any other ways that I can really squeeze all of the juice out of this book? Are there any traps that I need to be mindful of? And as a bonus, can anybody else share their results with me? Thanks! x
  11. See images. A question also: Can you journal self-inquiry? Thanks!
  12. I was diagnosed with OCD about 4 years ago. I've managed to reign it in a lot during that time, but it's clear to me that it still remains. I contemplate a lot, all day long pretty much, and i've just read this on an OCD web page: "Ruminations 'Rumination' is a term often used to describe all obsessional intrusive thoughts, but this is misleading. In the context of OCD a rumination is actually a train of prolonged thinking about a question or theme that is undirected and unproductive. Unlike obsessional thoughts, ruminations are not objectionable and are indulged rather than resisted. Many ruminations dwell on religious, philosophical, or metaphysical topics, such as the origins of the universe, life after death, the nature of morality, and so on. One such example might be where a person dwells on the time-consuming question: 'Is everyone basically good?'. They would ruminate on this for a long period of time, going over in their mind various considerations and arguments, and contemplating what superficially appeared to them to be compelling evidence. Another example might be someone that ruminates about what would happen to them after death. They would weigh up the various theoretical possibilities, visualise scenes of heaven, hell, and other worlds and try to remember what philosophers and scientists have said about death. With most ruminations it inevitably never leads to a solution or satisfactory conclusion and the person appears to be deeply pre-occupied, very thoughtful, and detached" Now I don't know whether i've been contemplating or ruminating this whole time. Does anybody know where there is a difference? A line between healthy or unhealthy? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks. x
  13. I forgot to add that I also do yoga 3-4 times a week but this is common yoga (yoga with adrienne) and I have just broken a two day fast yesterday where I only had two fruit smoothies a day so I could be experiencing some backlash from that.
