Absolute Serene Stillness of Mind
Amanitas - A. muscaria

3 caps oral Amanitas - A. muscaria (tea)
Harvested some autumn amanitas from the mountains of north-east Pennsylvania. These local amanitas are a brilliant mix of vibrant orange and yellow with white and sometimes orangish warts. I harvested one small cap, one medium cap, and one large cap and stem from a cluster of at least thirty amanitas. There is a serious symbiosis between the amanitas and conifer trees.

Brought it all home, placed the mushrooms in a pot of water and set to medium heat with a timer for about 40 mins. This process is very important. It helps convert the toxic ibotenic acid to the good stuff muscimol. There are plenty of more detailed preparation guides around on the internet, so I won't get into that. Anyways, drank the brew and ate the soggy delicious mushrooms around 20:00 nightfall on full moon night.

Was hanging out at my computer desk listening to house music and surfing the web. Within an hour, I felt very relaxed, relieved, dreamy, stoned, and also simultaneously energized physically. I noticed that my attention span was very dramatically increased. I often self-medicate with stimulants for my attention problems. I feel like I have mini seizures in my brain that interrupt any possible coherent stream of consciousness. All of that smoothed out very nicely.

I can read again! Wow. I started reading about Philadelphia and the history of USA. I could vividly imagine all of the scenes and events through the history of this land. Words, stories, and imagination opened up to a vastly superior lucid level. Eventually I felt it was time for bed. So I close up shop and head to bed.

I feel like my body is much larger, lighter, and more powerful than usual. Viking beserk?

The world was morphing, breathing, colors swirling, rainbows, tracers, beautiful reflections of higher dimensions of sound, light, and energy! Upon laying down, I noticed my mind playing its usual ego-anxiety games, reminding me of all the things wrong with my life and things that I have yet to fix. However, I simply let the thoughts play out and fade away, as if they were puppets taking their turns on a little puppet theatre stage, and I now remember that I am not only the play, but I am most importantly the seer.

So eventually the ego-anxiety show ceased. And I attained nirvana. The state of complete silence, bliss, and calm center of the imagination storm. This is a very rare and prized sacred state of being that I have come to when healing using ketamine, DXM, and nitrous. Dissociatives seem to get me here better than anything else. Bliss, om!

So yeah then I fell asleep for a long time, no dreams that I can recall now. But dreams are tricky....

I woke up feeling somewhat drained and groggy. But I fought through it and got moving to take care of the errands of the day. I feel an afterglow of rejuvenation, and energy on many levels that I had forgotten existed. It has been around 1 year since I last worked with amanitas.
