visuals and tripping
    #4069273 - 04/18/05 06:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

For some reason, the first three or four times that i tripped, i never had one real visual. Sometimes posters moved around a little bit, but never any melting or real visuals. Then the next few trips I've had had a few more visuals, lots of pinkish colors, and some closed eye visuals. It was always really mental. I thought a lot, sometimes I got really confused, sometimes I forgot I had even eaten shrooms. Then on my 7th trip I got tons of visuals, and didn't have a mental trip at all. I was seeing a lot of melting, I saw a room that didnt exist through a closed door, and tons of visuals like that. The very last time I tripped I got a lot of visuals again, like the last time, and again, no mental trip. Also, ever since the first time I really started getting visuals on trips, I've been getting visuals when I get really high.

Has anyone else noticed that more and more visuals come the more times you trip? Could my really visual 7th trip have completely brought me to a different side of shrooms? Oh, I forgot to say, I took 2 grams on my first trip, and I've taken a full 1/8 every other time, except for taking 5 grams on one of my middle trips that gave me hardly any visuals.

No visuals on 5 grams? That's really weird.

What shrooms were you eating? Unless they are a really weak strain, I guess you've got a high tolerance to psilocybin or something.

it's not really about tolerance, i tripped really hard. i think they were psilocybe cubensis. It was an intense trip, there was some kind of female entity in my head talking to me, just didn't see much visually.

Just take the experience for what it is.

If it's not entirely unpleasant then keep dosing, you may get lucky.

the visuals i get are pretty mild on cubanis, the only type of shrooms i have ever had.

my visual experiances have been with patterns or any textured object becoming wavy, that's pretty much it

Personally, I don't understand what the big deal is about visuals. The seem like the least interesting part of a trip. If you've seen one, you've seen them all. You know, to each is own. But I think sometimes people overemphsize visuals.

I think its different for every person. ex. me and my friend ate a 1/8th of P. cubensis very potent an hour later im tripping balls every thing is changing colors and morphing while my friend is sitting there still having a great time but he told me he didnt have one visual during the whole trip. he described it as more of a mental trip. so I think psilocybe has different effects for different people.

40ozking, that's exactly the way it used to be for me.

I agree that the visuals definitely are the least interesting part of the trip. They're nice and visually pleasing, but the mental trip is what it's all about. I'm just worried that the mental trip is gone for me now, and the visual trip is replacing it. Maybe I just need to make my normal dose over 3.5 grams now to start really tripping again.

wouldy anyone agree that visuals are like a reflection of that mental trip? what i mean is, my visuals tend to mirror or parallel whats going on in my head... like when i think up something crazy/fun/etc trippin, sometimes i'll have visuals relating to that thought or visuals that amplify or make the thought that much more intense

for me, visuals are quite worthwhile and def. far from uninteresting

eh, i get visuals sometimes, but usually they're far and between. my first time doing mushrooms, i literally ate a monster dose. i was pretty uncomfortable in my gut, and it wasn't because of shroom nausea. i ate as many wild cubes as i could pick before i became intoxicated. getting fucked up was prettyhigh up on my agenda that day, but it's sinse changed..

anyway, i had little/no visuals. i would see things in my head, but through my eyes things were pretty normal. in(almost, walls were barley visible) perfect dark, with trance going, i seen texturing that totally wasn't there, flowing wood, etc. it was pretty minimal and short lived, though.

i was also playing GTA 3 I think, and I felt guilty about running over all those cyber-people. thats how my trips always are. i've had a few very "wow what the fuck" visual experiences, but they're far and between, and oddly, happen well before or after the peak. sometimes i sorta wish my trips would get a little more visual, but whatever.

i haven't did mushrooms in over half a year too. mabye soon.

i agree also, the visuals being the least intresting part of the trip. however, the only shroom i have ever had is cubanis, so i may be missing out on some crazy visuals that another type of mushroom can offer, i don't know

SoK, I would have to agree with you on that. Recently I took half of a Homer Simpson tab and at some point during the trip I was reflecting on the strength of the batch when I had a vision of Homer flying through a swirling vortex of LSD molecules and being stretched and pulled by it.

It was amusing to say the least but at the same time it was just eye candy. The mental aspect of a trip definitely outweighs the visuals in my opinion.

I really don't know what you guys are talking about, having weak cubes?

The Cambodians i just grew are the most potent, amazing things I have ever taken in my entire life. Open eye visuals, morphs, tracers, color shifts, closed eye visuals, you name it I had it for about 5 hours on 2.5 grams.

They kicked in after 20 minutes, and before I knew it, my home was full of lions. They were there to protect me on my first journey with homegrowns! They walked with me room to room, I went to my bedroom and laid down. I was surrounded by coral snakes that cooled me off and talked to me. I saw the most beautiful fractal designs, and would follow them in my mind over and over again as they shifted. The walls would erupt neon gecko lizards, and the water in the toilets would form friendly faces and talk to me.

I think for me the visuals are the most important thing. I do not like to go into my head, i like to encounter the world and see the hidden details that the naked mind can absorb. I went for a walk on my property, and the veins of the trees and leaves glowed red like lava.

Needless to say, visuals are great and important to me. You guys can have your inner thoughts, but my lions are here to protect me.

I love the visuals.  :tripping: I don't think one particular aspect of tripping is better than another, they all equally important IMHO.

On my more visual trips I always feel like I get a lot less out of it than I do on my mental ones. After it's over I feel like the last 6 hours were incredibly fun, but I didn't really learn anything from them. On the mental trips I always feel like I come out of it as a new person, having gained much wisdom.

I had the same problem as you....until
I read a post on here about taking a shot of lime juice with powdered shrooms added!
I tried it yesterday and saw the best visuals yet on shrooms....funny thing is I took less than a gram!!!!!!
I had taken the same shrooms last week and no visuals only the rush.
HEres the trick

1. squeeze a juice from a fresh lime into a shotglass
2. grind up shrooms.. careful a little can go a long way
3. put shrooms in lime shot glasss.... mix and let sit for 15 minutes
4. take the shot and trip like hell.... kicks in in about 10-15 min.
5. never take shrooms any other way

Try it....youll see

or just take a hit of acid with the mushrooms...

it doesn't seem to take away from the experience. spiritually or otherwise. i was really against taking these two things together because i thought something would conflict. it didn't.

try that. best of luck.
