It all began on a nice overcast day in the summer. First off I've had some previous experience with mushrooms, 4-HO-MET, Nitrous, Codeine, LSA, and if you count being medically put under, Ketamine. But Finally I had some free time and was ready for some deep introspection. I previously prepared my self (made sure everything important was done so less worries). Not to mention I was in a GREAT mood today which made everything even more spectacular than it already was.
At about 11:15 AM, I crushed up 2.5 grams worth of Treasure Coast and Escondido mushrooms and downed them with two shots of lemon juice. Was honestly expecting a minor trip... Ha no. For the next half hour I felt fine, and about fifteen minutes after that half hour had passed, I went out to grab a water and took a detour outside to observe any visual changes. The grass looked slightly more vibrant and holographic, but not much though at the time. Before I went in I talked to my grandma, However I was getting a very eerie feeling and was getting uncomfortable so I went inside.
12:30 PM: This is where the trip really started to begin. I walked upstairs into my brothers old room. Being an empty room, I decided to stare out the window, and oh my all the leaves on the grass were individually spinning and faces were forming with all the rocks in the garden and suddenly I was dead on hit FULL force. I turned around and EVERYTHING looked different/alive. I proceeded to my room and my vision was consumed by dancing robotic figures and all my furniture was lagging back and fourth inside one of another. Again, I stared out my half open window and it DEAD ON reminded me of being in an Ed, Edd, And Eddy episode. The sidewalks looked like giant moving treadmills. These robots were so vivid and lit up, I could see them dancing in the streets. It began to rain and I was instantly filled with a feeling of bliss and then I turned on my desired playlist and laid down and became a part of the mass imagery.
1:30-3:30 PM: Before the peak came on, I decided to take two dabs of some cannabis shatter (destroyed me). During these times (or at least the best of my memory) I laid down and was overcome by some of the most fascinating and intense closed eye visuals of my life. I was seeing this light up keyboard that was flashing tons of different colors but during the flashes they'd morph into each other. My body physically felt like it was being infinitely twisted and stretched out beyond space. At one point I felt like I was inside a clock, and ironic because I saw what my mind called a 'Vibe Clock' and it was an ordinary clock with all the numbers except the numbers were different feelings I was unaware of. Every time the minute hand would move my vibe would change into some mystical vibe/feeling I've NEVER felt/could never even think of as a feeling. It was beautiful, I've never seen anything like it. I literally felt like I had rose above all and was overseeing all world chaos. I wasn't able to comprehend how people can be so violent and tense all the time with feelings like this lying deep within.

Now the most fascinating part of my trip which I personally think had an impact on me was when I was still laying down and my favorite song 'Fitting In' by House Boy came on. All of the sudden I was being held by the back collar of my shirt by this hand and being shown the 'Unconscious Highway' of my thoughts. I CLEARLY heard this magical voice tell me how beautiful everything really was and the science of love, but this voice was masking over another horrid voice that was also telling me how horrible the world really was and that things aren't the way they should be. But when this other world voice faded (really hard to keep up with order as my perception of time was beyond distorted). I was listening to the magical chant of this dudes voice and I could FEEL the music bending me and wrapping around me. Like it was absolutely consuming me at this point. I've never heard anything with so much range and depth, I almost shed a tear for this true moment of glory. I was picturing the album cover spinning into a bunch of fractal patterns but the character on the album cover was just melting into the shapes as they formed. Like a wax figure melting but also being digitally stretched into pixels. At one point I actually thought I was permanently evolving into a new state of consciousness and that I was using so much brain power I was going to shut down
Like an overheating computer. During this intensity I frantically 'Woke up' or whatever in this case, cause to be honest I don't know if I was kind of sleeping, or just tripping really hard. But I walked to my bathroom and stood there for like 15 minutes observing my reptile looking face and the environment around me. I kept picturing trees sprouting up from the tile and my face was just spinning around on and off my head but still attached. Through my peripheral vision I saw vast strips of large and small eyeballs that were colors of purple and blue.They were fluctuating in size. I felt 'funked out'. In fact funk is the best word I could use to describe this madness.
Indulged by mass funk. Seconds later I checked the time and it was only 4 PM at this point! What the hell did I get lost in during those last 2 and a half hours! Incredible.
4:30 PM: The intensity came down quite a bit and I was able to contact a friend to pick me up (since my parents were going to be home soon and I was still mildly tripping). I called my friend J to come pick me up. The rest of the trip was your usual moderate, calm come down. Minor visuals and slight alteration but nothing serious like earlier. Overall, this was an outstandingly positive trip and I'm eager to see what experiences will come next. Not to mention, every time I hear that song now, I get this mystical other world connection. The chant just fills me with pure bliss. Like sensing an energy of some sort. I almost start to feel disconnected it gets so overwhelming sometimes. However this was simply one of the most fascinating experiences of my life. Ever since I've started experimenting with psychedelics, my life has changed for the better and I have taught myself how to avoid tension and spread love

. Also, the lemon juice tek did make a mass improvement to the trip.
P.S: I donít use psychedelic substances for the purpose to get 'fucked up'. I simply use them for introspective purposes. To discover higher learning/thought patterns, and to seek an elite form of intelligence in the land beyond. These substances are to be treated with utmost respect and care, and under no means to be abused.
