Wht is the psychedelic experience?
    #11162982 - 10/01/09 12:27 PM (8 years, 24 days ago)

Big question huh? :what2:

How would one go about answering it?

How many answers it done got?

One quick first question, read this: Addiction, Despair, and the Soul: Successful Psychedelic Psychotherapy, A Case Study (1)

He remembers something after an LSD session. Something so personal he won't even share it with his wife! YET remembering it has a dramatic effect on him so much so he gives up his alcohol habit!!

I have heard this quite a few times--how people who have psychedelic healing remember something which has a very deep healing effect on them. What do you think are the explanations for this?

I also saw this video and a woman who'd been raped had taken MDMA in therapy--though its not a psychedelic but an empathogen--She had tried evenything but when she took MDMA she remembered detials of the rape she had forgotten or denied, suppressed, and it helped to heal her!

MDMA


&


(see in both videos there are two women who have been raped and both have been greatly helped by MDMA. The first woman says how MDMA helped her remember things –of the trauma—she had forgotten, so doing so really helped her!)

the psychedelic experience is walking into your mind and realizing that you have never met before.

more like that you already have, in every single possible way that could ever be, always have and always will, you just haven't chosen to experience it yet


but how would i actually describe the psychedelic experience? existence. life. experience. It extends far beyond drugs

This is a cool description:

“I'll bring my analogies in here at this point. When I'm talking about a trip to a person who hasn't tripped and they want to know, "What's it like?" It's hard to describe what it's like but I have a couple of analogies that I use.
One is, imagine that you're on a stage, a very large stage, around stage, circular. You're standing in the center of the stage. Around this stage is a huge curtain, very, very high and it's closed and where the curtain comes together there's about say three feet of space, of an opening. You're standing in the middle of that stage and you're looking out through that opening. Everything you see is the totality of your experience of yourself.
What happens on a trip is by some mysterious means the curtain very gradually is pulled back. Very gradually. It's pulled back until it's pulled all the way around the back and you're given the opportunity to see everything that's been there all the time but you couldn't see it before because there was a curtain. All the different levels of experience that it's possible to have, you have. All the different truths, all the different things, you have. You experience it. Then, as you start to come down, very gradually the curtain gets pulled back around until you're all the way down.
When you're all the way down, the difference is that before, you had about three feet of space that was open to look through. You now have about fifteen feet of space. You have really expanded your awareness, which is what they call these materials, awareness-expanders.
Myron: The curtain might have even gotten a little transparent.
Jacob: Yeah, (laughs), that was what I was going to follow with. In addition to that you have a lot of memory of what you did experience before. So in a sense that's true, the curtain has become almost transparent. You don't remember everything, you don't need to remember everything. You don't need to. You remember everything you need to remember." Secret Chief

You can't capture the psychedelic experience in words. Its best just to experience it yourself.

You can read about sex, see sex, and study sex. But you really dont know what its like until you actually get laid.
