Hallucinogens have been a deep interest of mine for a long, long time. I’ve been pursuing the ultimate high ever since I learned these substances were a gateway to altered states of consciousness. Even though I have always been wary of the uses and abuses of recreational drugs (they were EVERYWHERE in my teenage years), there was something about hallucinogens that always sparked my interest…
The pursuit of higher states of consciousness
More than the substances themselves, what always seduced me about hallucinogens were the mystical states of consciousness people reported after experimenting with them. From contacting higher entities and exploring new, parallel realms to watching the truths of the universe unfold before your eyes, they seemed like a pretty dope thing to try out!
This passion for expanding consciousness took me to explore other methods to achieve higher states of mind. Meditation, breathwork, and floatation tanks allowed me to go through these experiences myself. Yet, I’ve always felt right in my heart there was something more out there—some kind of high I was missing.
Noteworthy, it was not because I didn’t try! God knows I tried! But no matter the dose, origin, or product quality, I never seemed to have any reaction to acid. Unlike anything else I had tried before, all my experiments with this particular hallucinogen would result in flat, rather ordinary highs. Is my brain broken?—I wondered. Do I have some special immunity to the effects of these specific substances?
It turns out I wasn’t ready for it.
Hallucinogens and my evolution of consciousness
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to experiment with acid again. But unlike all the other tries, it took me there this time! Something I could have never expected, I now consider this first trip a turning point in the evolution of my consciousness.
If you want to know all the details of this eye-opening experience, I’ve got you! In our most recent ‘Alchemize Your Life’ episode, I’ll walk you over my whole story of experimenting with hallucinogens. Then, we’ll go from my revelations to a few reasons you might consider introducing new experiences (not necessarily acid!) into your life!
The revelations that unfolded before me changed my perspective on the spiritual path, where I am, who I am, and the work I still have to do!
Are you interested in learning more about the use of hallucinogens in the spiritual path? Have you ever had an experience like this before? Remember, you can share with us at The Prysm Institute Of Quantum Alchemy, where you’ll find a community of open-hearted lightbenders just like you!
Til the next episode, love!
