What, if any, rituals do you perform before dosing?
    #3729216 - 02/04/05 08:49 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Just interested to see how, if they do, people ritualise.

My wife and I walk around our ornamental garden, have a nice long hot bath, Zen meditate for half an hour, perform mantras then discuss, from pre-prepared notes, 10 things we've achieved since the last trip, 10 things we aim to achieve afterwards and then our aims/desires for the trip - we always aim to take our doses between 12pm and 2pm.

1) Obtain pot.
2) Take a shower.
3) Change into loose, baggy, comfortable clothes.
4) Grab my trip bag.
5) Dose psychedelic (7pm-9pm)
6) Smoke pot for nausea.

Not really a ritual, but that's how it usually goes..

No real rituals here except for cleaning. Any and all areas that I am going to be in must be cleaned really well. I guess this all comes from a bad trip a few years back in a dirty apartment.

1. Clean my house
2. Take a shower
3. Get all of the trip toys (including pot) I think I'll want out (though I usually never end up playing with any of them)
4. Make certain I have lots of music to choose from.
5. Talk with trip buddy for a little bit.
6. Dose

My only ritual is to make sure it is random to some degree. If i have that day off, and I have mushrooms, i will put them in my pocket and go about my day until BAM! i eat them. Sometimes i surprise myself, then sometimes i eat them at 4am in the morning when after i had thought about it being a horrible idea to eat them right now, i do anyway.

I always eat my mushrooms in pairs of 2. I read that this was the traditional Indian way to eat them so that the mushrooms dont get lonely or frightened when you chew them up and swallow. It might sound a little crazy, but I like to give them the respect they deserve.

I usually clean everything, and take a long, refreshing shower.

I have recently started adding more ritual to my shroom sessions. For instance, last time I tripped, I lit candles next to my Buddha and Jesus alter and started soft music. I set the shrooms on my alter. I dimmed the lights, and then read a bit of Be Here Now, and some other helpful reading material. Then I took my journal out and wrote down my intentions for the trip ahead, what I wanted to think about or work on during the trip. Then I meditated, stilling my mind. Finally, I blew rustica tobacco smoke over the shrooms to protect them from evil spirits, and did the same as I sanctified my tripping space. Then I said a prayer, ate them, and the trip began.

I felt like the extra effort was really worth it. I felt prepared and relaxed going into the trip, and ended up having a great time. So based on that, I think I will do this little ritual everytime I trip now. It's nice.

shower, clean, meditate...

but most importantly, fast.

I fast at least the whole day I plan to trip, if not the days before.

There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

That's cool that everyone pretty much does the same thing.  I always make sure my house is clean.  Then, I put on fresh clean pajamas and get all my CD's out and set them by the radio.  I make sure all my trip toys are loaded w/fresh batteries and I unplug the phone.

There's something spiritually cleansing to have a clean house, clean clothes, and a nice trip to clean the cobwebs out of your brain.  :smile:

I get a glass of good drinking water
a pen and a pad.
I check that I am pretty relaxed and not carrying tight threads of worry with me.
if it looks like nobody is going to get too needy in my environment
I call this a "temple" and may take a plunge into salvia space.

-I spend the entire day in meditative mode, and clean the trip ground.  Keeping things slow and relaxed.  Not just tidy, but clean!
-I make special note to avoid all forms of media.
-Gather things I find useful or fun (art supplies, writing tools, my guitar.) 
-If my guitar strings are old, I will change them and make sure all my gear is setup so that I wont have to think about it.  In past experience, when i'm tripping hard, the concept of input/output completely eludes me.
-When everything is done (I try to have it all done for 3-4 hours before I dose) I meditate for 30 minutes.
-Then, I maintain that mindset, I lay out my trip clothes, and have a fully cleansing shower, visualizing the water as a brilliant white light cleansing me of all impurities.  When im clean, I will just enjoy the hot water for half an hour, or until it starts getting cold.
-Then I will just do whatever  (again, no media, maybe the shroomery though :wink:) until an hour before. 
-Turn off the phone
-Send good vibes to whatever it is I am dosing on,
-meditate for another 30 minutes right before dosing.
-While still sitting, I will consume the sacrament and just sit.
-When I finally get up, I go to my living room and turn on this lightbulb with a mushroom filament, (all my friends know that if they come over, and that light is on, then I am tripping)

From there on is anything but routine.  I just let my body move around on its own, not making myself do anything, just doing it.

So there is my ritual.  This ritual is only for those planned spiritual excursions.  I have had many spontaneous trips, though those always end up as artistic nights.  There you are.

:heart:Peace:heart:

Nice post.

I don't usually have a set pre trip ritual but it's a damn good idea. In the past, If was tripping outdoors, I have prepared by filling my bag with lots of water, food, my journal and iPod before setting off. Indoors I tend to get music ready I might want to listen to, dose and lie on my sofa.

-get the things I need beside me like water, paper-pen, music
-set the environment with incense and candles
-take a shower
-get into some comfortable clothes
-close my connection to the outside world
-meditate

I do almost exactly as butterflydawn, with a few minor changes:

1-Prepare the room for the experience:clean, prepare a comfortable bed with pillows and mants,have beer and a valium close by (for the come down or a really really bad trip, just in case),my mp3 or cd player with headphones at hand reach, and make sure there's ABSOLUTE darkness and silence)

2-taking a shower , where I left my problems drain and confront my issues so it's already done with before the trip.

3-wearing some light tripping clothes (beatiful and comfortable, usually tie-dye t-shirts and silk trousers)

4-when eating the substance speaking to her: "I'm putting my life in your hands, so please don't hurt me. I helped your kind with my hands and tools, and I ask for you to show me your wiseness" and such. Some think this is stupid, but it makes me feel better so...

That's when it's prepared, sometimes I just eat 'em with someone and I don't get the time.

hmm..
I always make a new trip CD before each trip. Although, I've made so many I don't think I have to anymore :laugh:
I get my trip backpack ready, fill it up with weed, journal, candle, incense, flashlight (Essential!),water, CD's, whatever else floats my boat.

I dress according to the weather outside... then i eat the shrooms, do whatever until I feel them, then head outside...
