Do you want to experience the power of Magic Truffles? There are some tips I can give you, so you can make the most of your experience Matses.
The most important thing in properly preparing for a trip is to be respectful. I think this is even better understood when you already have experience with psychedelics. You feel during that experience the unprecedented power that psychedelics contain. Even if you are an atheist, or have a bad head for “spiritual talk”, there is no denying that there is something in these substances that transcends our material world. Opening up to this is part of the job.
Clean your body before the trip
When I prepared for an Ayahuasca ceremony, I followed a diet for several weeks. There are several ways to “cleanse” your body in preparation for travel.
I chose to stay away from alcohol and drugs (including cannabis), refined sugar and caffeine, and eat vegan foods during this period. Pretty strict, in other words. I found it valuable to follow this “diet”, because I felt that the psychedelic experience became even deeper, being more open and clean.
Plan your trip
Although I am a person who likes to live in the moment and does not keep track of all events on a calendar, I can recommend that you choose a date for your trip. This way you can work for it, both with your mentality and with your physical conditions. Choose a day when you have no obligations. The last thing you want is for your mother to call you in the middle of a psychedelic experience and accuse you of being late for the Easter celebration.
Decide what time you want to start the trip. Keep in mind that a trip with Magic Mushrooms lasts between 6 and 8 hours, after which an “afterglow” occurs, in which it is pleasant to let the trip calmly assimilate, without too many external stimuli. After the trip it is nice to sit on the couch and listen to good music, take a walk, look at the stars and/or snuggle with someone.
You can choose to travel during the day, but traveling at night also has its advantages.
Daytime trips : Especially when the weather is good, I prefer to travel during the day. For me, the sun is a very good influence so that the trip is full of golden energy. During the day you have more possibilities, but the possibility of too many stimuli also increases.
Night trips : As with the veladas (mushroom ceremonies) in Mexico, you can also choose to travel at night. The night gives a completely different dimension to the trip. It is true that at night you can turn even more inward, which in turn can provide a profound healing experience. Choose a room in your house where you provide enough pillows, blankets and whatever you need to decorate the room well. You may feel a little more tired in the days that follow, but at the same time, the aftermath of the trip can also provide wonderful energy.
Go with the flow
Of course, with psychedelics it’s about surrendering to the experience itself as much as possible. This cannot be controlled. Every time I travel, I make myself vulnerable and try to allow the psychedelic to show what it wants to show me. I barely have (or don’t have) control over this. Especially at high doses it is very important not to resist, because this will only hinder your growth and cause an unpleasant (bad) trip. Even when this happens it is good to see this as “necessary.”
Enough water and food
It is best not to eat anything at all for at least a few hours before taking the psychedelic. This ensures that your body is clean and can better absorb the psilocybin. It may also prevent nausea or stomach pains.
During the entire period, drink plenty of water! This prevents dehydration and headaches the next day.
A few hours after the trip, and certainly afterward, it is good to eat something healthy and tasty. The favorites are fresh fruits, such as oranges, mango, apples and grapes. Nuts, seeds and dark chocolate are also recommended.
Cocoa increases the intensity of the trip, thanks in part to the synergistic effect between chocolate and psilocybin.
