Patterns I have discovered with shrooms.

2 posts in this topic

So i have done 10 trips on shrooms so far, i have started to sorta understand how shrooms work. I have been analyzing all of my shrooms trips to see the commonalities and differences.  How shrooms morph consciousness and common patterns that occur depending on the dose. 

Note: This is my own personal experience, these might not be the same case for you, since psychedelics affect everyone differently. 

For me there occur 2 phases in my shroom trips with common patterns on almost all my trips on dose between 1.5 - 3.5 gram. 

1. The come up 30 - 120 minutes: This is the worst phase, with the highest probability of a bad trip to occur.

Physical effects:

  • High heart rate 
  • stomach pain 
  • uncomfortable body load 
  • cold as fuck. Like I wonder if I am sick or have the flu. 

Then mentally I will get low consciousness desires or thoughts. Feeling horny wanting to have sex or jerk off, play video games, watch porn and listen to music. Then I start to get voices inside my head with negative self-talk. Like telling me “you are a failure” or “you will die alone”. Feeling lonely and wanting to talk to anyone, but a bad idea on shrooms. 

2. Mid peak and come down 2.5 - 5 hours: If i survive the come up i reach heaven. This is a completely new state of consciousness where I feel ecstasy, love and peace. 

Physical effects:

  • Uncomfortable body load goes away and I start to feel ecstasy in my body 
  • Getting warm in my body 
  • Heart rate is less intense
  • Feeling very energetic, feeling like taking a walk.

Visual effects usually occur on 2 grams +. Mentally I get insane clarity, being able to think straight. More in control of what thoughts enter my mind. This clarity sometimes feels so heightened that it gives the illusion of me thinking I am sober. This is why shrooms are such an amazing spiritual tool for contemplation. Not only does it spark clarity, but also curiosity in understanding what reality is. I feel complete. Materialistic desires for sex, money and entertainment fade away. The come down is generally much the same, just less intense. 

One common pattern in these 2 phases is what I call Singularity of consciousness. If I focus  on a thought, object or a question for long enough I get sucked into it like a black hole. For example if I get negative thoughts and I keep my focus on these thoughts they will intensify and become more rapid. This singularity of consciousness is what will cause a bad trip. Another example if I focus on the question “what is reality”? I will start after some time to get insights into the question and it will affect my ego, where it will lead to ego death. I start to get scared of the question and I feel like I am dying.   

The good news is that when I start to understand these mechanisms of shrooms, I can make predictions of what will happen during my trip. This helps in controlling the trip for spiritual growth and avoiding bad  trips. Although I would not be able to predict what would happen if I took a dose higher than 3.5 grams, that is unknown territory for me. 

What are your thoughts on this? Why is the come up such a hell?

You and I are on similar boats, my friend. I haven’t taken more than 3.5 grams, at this point.

Note that Mushrooms tend to be a lot more mental than visual. It can still be pretty insane, though, visually speaking. For me it’s like everything in my psyche is being amplified. You’re able to think of things more deeply almost as though you’re philosophizing about the universe, existence and the self, which can lead to ego dissolution at times.

The physical effects you mentioned are normal. It’s very difficult to move around with the body load that Shrooms bring, in my experience. Throughout the entire trip I feel like laying down.

The best analogy I can give when describing Shrooms is like being on a rollercoaster. The experience hits me in waves and the come up is probably the most difficult part of the trip. It’s almost like a process of purification. The Shrooms hit me with all the bad in the beginning and once I get passed it I’m hit with intense euphoria and feelings of interconnectedness. It’s not always like this for me but sometimes, yeah.

Mushrooms bring me a sense of being in the Stone Age. It can get very primitive! One of the realizations I got from them was that humans are silly apes that behave in some of the funniest ways. 

So, it’s very similar for me the way you described it but I will say that Shrooms can be very unpredictable, in my experience. They have a mind of their own and they will show you what they want to show you.
