DOSE:
350 seeds oral Morning Glory (extract)

BODY WEIGHT: 275 lb


This was my 2nd trip using morning glory seeds and it was a lot more than I expected. I'm still processing everything I learned and it will be a while before I'm able to fully integrate it my life. My dosage was 350 heavenly blue morning glory seeds ground up and made into a tea via 24hour cold water extraction. I froze the resulting tea in my freezer for a week to preserve it and thawed it out for consumption overnight before consuming today. This started very fun and light and quickly became a transcendent experience unlike any I've had before.

12pm - Drank the tea
12:30pm - Feeling a bit weird already, this is hitting me a lot faster than just eating the seeds
1pm- feeling a bit nauseous but not too bad
2pm - feeling really relaxed and euphoric, noticing that music has a big impact on how I feel. Spend the next hour listening to some trippy and relaxing stuff. I can feel my mind getting into a psychedelic headspace. I think I may be peaking soon.
3pm - I have the overwhelming urge to go outside and lots of energy. I go out barefoot to walk about and connect with the land. This is when things really take off and get a bit crazy. Everything is beautiful and profound, just looking at the grass has me filled with a profound sense of connection. As I walk around the neighborhood I see a bunch of trees growing in pots and find it very disturbing. I realize that its because I am barefoot and deeply physically and spiritually connected to the earth while these trees are cut off from that experience by being in pots rather than the ground. The thought that "pots are shoes for trees" pops into my head and is very disconcerting.

4pm - I sit down in a secluded spot to marvel at the beauty of nature around me, colors of changing leaves and grass are amazingly vibrant. I am overwhelmed and absorbed by the beauty around me.
4:30pm - An extremely cerebral psychedelic experience begins. I thought I had already peaked, I was wrong. I am conversing with the spirit of the morning glory flower, an unknowably ancient being that begins downloading information into my brain at a rapid pace.
5pm-8pm: Time gets weird and super dilated, this time period feels like 12 hours on its own. I'm walking through the woods and fields having one supreme epiphany after another. I realize that humanity is not our core nature, but something that has been grafted onto our souls that alienates us from others. I realize that this is a temporary state that can be learned from. I came to a radical and organic acceptance of my own death. This life is just one state of being in a long chain of experiences. There will be other forms my consciousness will take. Losing this one is not too big of a deal. This knowledge feels profound and overwhelmingly important. I realize why some people have committed suicide on psychedelics, because they came to know this truth and did not want to go back to being human. I feel as if I have lost my humanity and all the baggage that comes with it. I have unzipped my human suit and am a being of pure spirit. I realize that I have a responsibility to not kill myself, but instead choose to remain in my current human form in order to help others realize and understand the truths revealed to me today. More information is shared with me by the morning glory spirit that helps me unravel and disentangle myself from past traumas. I feel cleansed and renewed.

8:30pm-9pm - I am still feeling very much high, but I can feel my humanity returning like ivy growing on a wall. I am utterly changed, walking back into my house feels like waking into the life of a person who no longer exists. I felt great during the peak, the coming up and coming back down are uncomfortable. The coming down process feels physically exhausting like I ran a marathon. I feel utterly spent and utterly transformed. It will be quite a while before I return to this potent plant medicine if only because the physical toll is quite heavy. My future experiments with psychoactive plants for the time being will likely be a bit more mild as I recover from this experience.
