Powerful Brew

  oral Mushrooms (tea)


Dose was prepared by steeping the mushrooms in water for about 30 minutes, pouring the water into cups, then adding honey. This is my favorite way to ingest them, because I don't really taste the shrooms. Each cup was estimated to have 1/16 oz.; I didn't even finish my cup and I still had a good trip.

Effects started faster than usual, after about 15 minutes I started noticing 'life' popping up everywhere. The christmas ornaments started looking at me, some evil, some good. I went outside and noticed they trees. They 'told' me the only way they could talk/move was through wind. I noticed some 'gnomes' (about the size of garden gnomes) that were hidden in the bark of a neighbor's tree. Each blade of grass was alive, beaming as the sun beat off them. In the foreground of a sunset, a leaf spiraled to the ground, and I realized that life abounds in everything, from the macro to the micro. Even the birds that were painted on the thermostat were alive. This energy/lifeforce told me that all you had to do was notice it and smile back.

This trip was the realization of a quote from the St. Thomas gospel: 'I am the light that is over all things....Split a piece of wood; I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.' It was beautiful.
