Pre-dosage rituals
    #1490924 - 04/24/03 09:43 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

What sort of rituals if any, do you guys perfom before consuming mushrooms? Terence McKenna often said after consuming a heroic dose, he would say to the mushroom something like "I put myself in your hands, I give you my trust and control over me, please take care and treat me good" . And also, in the time before the first effects would start coming on, he would think about all of the bad things that could possibly happen on the trip, and all of the "bad stuff" he did since the last time he tripped. This would help him deal with any possible bad trip scenarios if they should arise. Personally, this might just get me more anxious than I already am but whatever works. so what do you guys do to minimize bad trips and maximize positive experiences? I am probably going to get a my hands on 3 grams of mushies sometime very soon. After a year of research about mushrooms and drugs in general. This is going to be my very first entheogenic experience and I'm very VERY excited!!!

I clean... :smile:

Mushrooms tend to turn my nose on super-sensitive and anything that isn't clean and fresh seems extra nasty.

I also meditate, but I do that every day anyway.

Clean is good.. Just stay comfortable, and everything will be fine. I like to drink lots of water befor hand because i sweat alot during trips. And ull get a chance to go to the washroom forsure that way.. Dont know why but its a good place to be. Alot of people say dont look in the mirror but i cant see why not.. Iv seen my face with patterns and bleeding out of zits.. where i didnt have zits.. haha but u know its just tha drugs so who cares, iv done mushrooms in strange places with strange people and only had one bad trip at a concert, so id say stay out of public.

Could you explain what you mean by meditate? ie. the process involved for you...

When preparing for a trip my friends like to watch tv or something to distract themselves. Me...I like perfect calm, perfect dark, perfect silence.

I just sit there waiting...thinking about stuff...then alll of a sudden, I'm up!

drink lots of water, draw, do whatever you need to do to clear out our mind. prefer to fast for 3 day's ahead of time. and if possible, be in the woods when you do it, and be camping out in the woods a few days ahead of time.

hmmm y'know, if you've been researching that long, it's quite possible that you have a strong idea implanted in your head of what a trip is like... this could be bad. I'd just focus on feeling what you feel. You'll be chilling out waiting for it to happen and then you'll be like "WOAH I'm high, this isn't anything like what terrence said!" I mean, you just can't imagine what a mushroom trip is like before ever doing them. You'll likely sit there and think this is great, but it's not nearly as hardcore as I imagined. Just relax, that's the best advice. Just relax and CHECK SHIT OUT CAUSE IT'S SO COOL!!

A while back, I decided to read some of Lord of the Rings as I waited for the peak. I went outside, sat on our bench in the garden and read. It was actually quite a good way to relax yourself before a trip (keeps your mind occupied) and as the effects begin to rise, you may find yourself with very vivid details of the story you are reading. Very relaxing also to be in my garden, smelling the plants and flowers around me and hearing nothing but silence and the occasional bird chirps.
Normally I might put on a nice relaxing album to ease your nerves into the trip. And sometimes I do nothing in particular at all.

lol yea I bet it is cool, I'll be taking 3 dried grams so I'm pretty sure its gonna hit me moderately hard. I only have experiences being drunk a couple times and a few intense mj "trips" so this is probably gonna exceed my expectations. From reading all the trip reports I expect to giggle a lot, see stuff morph, and have a lot of deep thoughts. Anything beyond that will be a bonus! I plan to do it alone cause someties when I smoke bud with my friends they won't let me close my eyes and just relax, they think I'm gonna fall asleep. But I will tell my friend who lives right down the street that I'm doing this so he can pop it just incase things go really hay wire. My plan for the day is to eat them early in the morning, go for a walk in the forest, listen to some Tool and Pink Floyd, explore my backyard, and basically just have fun exploring my mind. Lying down in silent darkness I will try for another trip.

ahaha seuss, Im the same way. I like to clean me surrounding REALLY good, so its very pleasing on the eye. Otherwise when I start to grill, the clutter/mess will just irritate the shit out of me.

Personally i abstain from food for 12, 8, or 4 hours before i dose. Drink lots of water. Clean my surroundings, pick my clothing and FOOTWEAR (gotta have comfy footwear), Make sure i have a nice bowl of marijuana packed, and concentrate on the goal of my trip, and that is, to become more focused in life. I also generally...if indoors, make a playlist on the computer, or load appropriate cd's.

I like reading, yeah, that sure is a good thing to do

when you get more experience, it?s really nice to read stuff like The Divine Comedy, by Dante.....

nowadays I like reading jokes, filosophy and having a little smoke before hand.....
setting up the music is also a nice thing......praying is good if you worship any kind of being or god......

writing.....painting and drawing when the colors get brighter.....playing with those sticky balls, tenis balls......but it?s better to do anything still......don?t move a lot on the onset because your stomch might complain.....

do whatever calms you......

I normally try not to eat 6 hours previous, & I'll ready roll a good few joints for the end(or if I wanna shoot that extra bit higher), then when I peak I'll look in the mirror & say "i'm back!"
sometimes I'll descuss things with myself too (but Im crazy like that)

yes, talking to yourself about the oncoming trip is a very nice thing.....
tell yourself, out loud, that it?s gonna be a nice trip and reasure yourself about you being a good person....

not only thinking but telling yourself......or just talk normal stuff, that would work as well......

Pre Dose Rituals, a very good topic indeed.

usually after i've injested the mushrooms, i know that it will hit me in about 45 minutes. I turn on my tv and just chill out for a bit. I also think some good thoughts and make sure my phones are near me incase i get a call. After about 30 minutes i go up and roll a joint and smoke it. By the time ive finished smoking the weed and the mushrooms should be hitting me. So i am now cast off into the world of the mushroom :smile:

I always shower as the mushrooms/acid begins to kick in - puts myself in a good state of mind.
