This was to be our (me and my girlfriends) first mushroom trip, we had experienced a few other psychedelics, mostly dxm but also some other, like dramamine and morning glory few times.
This happened a few weeks ago when we received a letter from Amsterdam. It held a small bag inside, labelled as Golden teacher 2.5g. After one night of restless sleep we split the mushrooms: approx. 1gram for my girlfriend and 1.5grams for me. We started eating them and after 15 minutes they were sealed in our stomaches… The taste was not bad at all.. kinda nutty
The waiting begun, I put a good mix of trance and drum’n’bass into cd player and layed on the couch. To my surprise I started feeling it almost immediatly, a warm, slow, caring feel building up from my feet, taking control of my body. I had a little difficulties at first when the floor started breathing in and out, (it first remainded me of a dramamine trip in a weird kind of way) but this wasn’t anything like it (to me dramamine is damn scary). After a short time I felt fine and could start enjoying my trip.
The feeling was like I would have been held in the chamber of love, I saw small blue waves traveling in our ceiling, colours.. beautiful colours.. everything was in technicolour, Beautiful beach in our ceiling. An alien like creature was watching us layered under the waves and I saw a spider web on top of everything.
My beach session was interrupted by my girlfriend: she claimed that it was cold and I should come and hug her warm. We both moved on the couch and hugged, I found the perfect love and joy as we both hugged and giggled tears out of our eyes. I was now seeing beautiful patterns my eyes closed, but I hadn’t got time to marvel them as they didn’t seem to be so important at the time, it was the feeling wich was. And what a feeling, every drumbeat and sound from the stereo filled the whole room and i could feel it in my body.
After a while I leaved the couch to travel into toilet. This was the moment I peaked, the toilet toke a form I had never seen it. The walls were bending and approaching me and the world was getting smaller around me. I leaved the toilet in a hurry, before it would trap me, and sat on the floor to admire our carpet, I noticed it was full of bees. I layed my hand on the carpet and thought ”surprise me”, and it did: a flick of my eyes and it was full of ants. That scared the hell out of me and I moved to a distance to watch the ants, bees, and scorpion like creatures have a fight on our carpet…
After a while the shroom’s started fading away and I decided that we should go out into nature. It was damn hard to convince my girlfriend to come because she was afraid that somebody might see us and think we are high on mushrooms. We performed a snowdance and threw some snowballs, it felt like there would have been some classic music playing in the background. It was getting colder, and we were pretty much down, so we went in to get some sleep.
I had never ever felt this comfortable during a trip.. Maybe that has something to do with the substance used, dramamine and dxm may not be the most userfriendly psychedelics after all... I have a feeling I’ll meet my teacher again someday.
