What is a spiritual magic mushroom trip?
Most of the scientific research on psychedelic, mostly psilocybin-induced experiences focuses on how various psychedelic substances can help heal the mind. Ever since humans started dabbling in what might be the meaning of life… Monks, poets, mystics and philosophers from various traditions argued that most people are sad because we might live with a false notion that we are separate from one another and the rest of the world.
The rephrase this, society embeds us with the I (personal ego) and the world (everything else). Most influential thinkers and schools of thought agree that this is just a personal hallucination that our brain creates for us inside our consciousness. It is a fundamental learning tool while we are children, but one of the keys to happiness might be to outgrow this way of thinking.
Most, if not all first-time magic mushroom users agree that your first-ever psychedelic experience breaks that notion inside you, possibly forever. The best way to describe this feeling that almost all first-time trips have in common goes something like this… During the trip, for the first time ever in your life, you stop feeling like “I” (me) and start feeling like you are part of “we”. That “we” that you acknowledge yourself to be, also contains all people, plants, animals things and much more.
Spiritual magic trip seekers usually try to focus their attention on this weird phenomenon even in later trips they have. Because as we use magic mushrooms just for fun, we eventually tend to notice this weird feeling less and less with each new trip. Spiritual psychonauts try to leave the “for fun” part out of tripping and focus more on the personal-spiritual knowledge part of magic mushroom tripping. They focus on the psychedelic trips as a learning experience, not a “doing this to relax and have fun with friends” one.
