Well, I had been wanting to try shrooms for about 7 months. I've done research upon research on them, and I felt I was ready to have my first 'trip'. I recently acquired an eight, I was splitting it with one of my good friends, so 1.75 each.
We arrive at our camping site with 4 other people. It's about 4:00, so the sun would be setting in around two- two and a half hours, around 6:00-6:30. We decide that we still want to be able to drink after we come down from the trip, and we thought that the enviornment wouldn't be the safest, so we each eat around .75-1 gram (we didn't have our scale with us).
It's about 5:30 now, and I'm not feeling anything. So, I decided to take some hits of 10x Salvia. I take four huge hits...and the trip began. I couldn't concentrate on anything, everyone was shaded pink because of the sunset, it was beatufiul. We had some The Orb playing, almost tribal like music. Everyone looked like they were working in honecombs, like bees keeping up the hive. The smallest movement attracted my attention, it was intense, but beautiful. The music was consuming me, I felt like I was on a rollercoaster, and the music was what was driving me. It felt like earth and space wanted to move me every way, like they were fighting over me and both pulling on me, but they were in a stalemate. Neither could drag me the way they wanted. I suddenly started thinking about how small everyone really is, if I could just zoom out and look at the world from space, I would be so miniscule. I was thinking about how many other people there are in the world, and that I have no idea about them, and they have no idea about me. It made me feel like an idiot for caring about ridiculous things. There are so much better ways I could be spending my time then worrying about little things.
After about 15 minutes of the Salvia, the shrooms started to kick in. Me and my friend M thought we saw some white creature in the bushes about 8 yards in front of us. We went to investigate. At that moment, while pushing brush out of the way of my path, everything seemed darker and had an awesome blue haze about it. I felt like I was in a Lord of the Rings movie, cutting bushes out of the way. Needless to say, we didn't find the creature that we 'saw'. Everything was so amazing, trees were so beautiful. After I was led back to our campsite, I had no recollection of where we just were, it was such a strange but amazing feeling.
We continued to play The Orb, and I was staring at the stars. At each note played during the music, one star would get brighter as if it was playing the note. It was such an amazing sight, I felt so connected to everything.
I decided to just fall into the experience and began just observing my surroundings, I had done enough participating. I was staring at the fire wall we had built, and sitting on it I could see a dark figure. It seemed as if it was wearing a cloak. I wasn't scared at all, mostly intrigued. I tried to talk to it, but it just sat there, almost as if it was watching over me. One of my friends said something to me and the trance was broken, but I could still see it for the rest of the experience.
I can't remember as much as I would like, as the camping trip was awhile ago, I just now decided to post. All I know is that if I hadn't done so much research on what I was getting myself into, I don't think I would have been able to handle it. Even .75 grams gave me such an intense trip. I had to constantly keep reminding myself that I'm in control. I can completely understand why some people feel alone, you are in your own world. It's such a hard experience to describe. But I loved it.
Thanks for reading.
