Unprofessional Topics 🙃

Hello, has anyone here ever done plant medicine, also known as ayahuasca? What was your experience like? Would you do it again? Would you recommend it? How has it improved or affected your life?

My bf did. He said it was a very positive experience. He vision of a panther. He threw up for an 1.5hr in the beginning. He says everyone does it. He says don't go to South America and pay hundreds to do it. It's a rip off and someone died doing so. He says he's glad he did it

He did it in California. He said it's dangerous to do it in South America

It’s real intense, but: Lysergic acid diethylamide.

From my experience, 100% yes. During the trip, you take in a lot more sensory information. You tend to see the world in new ways, and make associations way more quickly. You’ve never seen the world in such beauty. The comedown is energizing. The “afterglow” is incredible. For a few weeks, the sun shines a little brighter. The sky is a little bluer. Birds chirp a little more melodically. Easier to converse. In some respects, it’s like periodically hitting the reset button. Usually when I’ve done it, my desire to drink just disappears. Take better care of myself. Just look at the list of notable LSD users. Hell, Francis Crick first penned early sketches for The DNA double helix while on it. I try to do it about 1x/year. As to location, I vary it up when I can. Secluded beach and high rise airnbnb are fun. Personal favorite was when I was in London. Walked down the Birdcage, all the way throughout Hyde Park to the other side. Stunningly beautiful.

I did not personally do it, but had a friend do it while in Costa Rica. He had prepared for it for about a month (while chilling in Pura Vida) and found a reputable shaman who led his journey. From what he told me, it was a really healing experience. He said he "had a memory of his dad"... Who he had "never met". But then called his mom and she confirmed the memory. Wild stuff.

Side note: Chelsea Handler does it with her friends on Chelsea Does and it's really interesting (and funny). The other day I heard her on a podcast say her shaman shit his pants and didn't move for like hours and that she can't imagine where he went on his trip to be able to do that 😂😂😂
