Psychedelic Thinking

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
— Albert Einstein

One characteristic of the psychedelic experience is the realization of this exact Einstein quote — that the world we are currently living in – our culture, societies, trends, etc is a consequence of thought – it’s the consequence of the collective thought, collective minds, throughout the past, & can only be changed by changing our thinking.

What’s one of the most powerful & effective methods for changing your thinking?

Psychedelics, especially psilocybin mushrooms.

Note: It’s important to remember that psychedelics can create intense experiences – experiences that are definitely out of the ordinary. 

Sometimes ingesting psilocybin mushrooms without intentions or integrations will create healing experiences, & sometimes setting intentions & integrations will be extremely beneficial.

If you want to begin integrating your psychedelic experiences but don’t know where to begin, begin with The Psychedelic Trip Journal.

Psychedelic Fairy Tales

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
– Albert Einstein

My parents read me and my siblings fairy tales when we were young. They read us lots of stories from a range of authors. 

One of my favorite memories is of my dad reading me and my brother (we shared a room) Shel Silverstein at night.

His stories are short yet brilliant, fun, and filled with deep meaning.

Shel’s stories are psychedelic, Soul manifesting, without a doubt.

The Psychedelic Experience is sort of like a fairy tale in that it is so odd & surreal that it doesn’t seem real, yet it is.

This is one of the main reasons I created The Psychedelic Trip Journal, for you to capture some of your surreal psychedelic experiences & be able to take them with you into your daily life.

There’s also both a writing & drawing section for you to create your own fairy tale & more!

Psychedelic Creation

“I’m convinced that reality is a tinker toy set that we can learn to take apart and put together in completely different ways.”
– Terence McKenna

This quote speaks for itself.

The dream is real.

Believe.

Psychedelic Visions

“…The psychedelic inner astronaut sees things which no human being has seen before and no human being will ever see again. But in fact this has no meaning unless it is possible to carry it back into the collectivity…”
-Terence McKenna

Everyone who has taken enough of a psychedelic to break on through to the other side knows they have just experienced something ineffable.

The psychedelic experience is often forgotten after one has the experience – because the experience is like a dream. It’s surreal, but it happens in our waking state.

So if we want to turn these waking dreams into reality, integration is necessary. This is the reason I created The Psychedelic Trip Journal.

The Psychedelic Trip Journal is one of the best resources for integrating your psychedelic experience — To integrate your dreams into your daily life.

To clearly communicate your unique psychedelic dreams & visions first with yourself & then if you want, with the world

Dissolving Self with Psilocybin

“As you dissolve into love, your ego fades. You’re not thinking about loving: you’re just being love, radiating like the sun.” 
-Ram Dass

I’ve explained the experience of my first psilocybin trip as if it were like I dissolved into the external world & became completely one with it.

How do I explain the experience of leaving my body? haha… it’s truly ineffable. It can only be experienced.

But to try — it’s an out-of-mind & out-of-body experience. It’s total trust in life, because you become one with life. There are no thoughts, but there is a feeling. & the feeling is complete bliss. It’s a knowing for certain, without a doubt, beyond thoughts, that EVERYTHING is perfect…The body knows for sure. 

This can be defined as a mystical experience, and for me, psilocybin triggered this. 

This didn’t mean that I was all of a sudden enlightened forever. All it was was temporary enlightenment, but this experience was so life-changing that I spent years working to integrate it into my daily life.

This is also why I created The Psychedelic Trip Journal — For you to integrate these experiences into your life.

But yea, my first psilocybin experience was in 2011 when I was a sophomore in college.

Ten years later, here I am. Integrating my integrations into the world, like so many before me. 

One of the main reasons I am an activist for psilocybin & plant medicine is because they can evoke these mystical experiences, temporary enlightenment, and even if it only happens for one in a million, it’s worth it.

Our Soul Selves

“The Soul is our Real Self.”
— Ram Dass

Who is the Soul self? 

It is your real self, beyond who you think you are – which is your ego.

The Soul self transcends ego – it transcends form, gender, race. It transcends the human experience, & it is who you really are.

But we’re not taught this by anyone.

You are given a name & told how to behave by parents, teachers, peers, authority figures…because they think they know…

What they “know” is just the result of a blind transferring of information from one generation to the next. 

A few people wake up & create positive change in this life but it doesn’t happen often.

Except recently, possibly with the increase in technology, we are seeing more & more people wake up.

On that note though too, more & more people are becoming blinder than they’ve ever been..trapped in their ways, afraid of change.

So the integration of Soul is needed now more than ever.

We are all taking part in an imperfect progress of evolution, as all evolution works this way, but we now are gaining the power to shape the future of humanity.

& it’s a collective process, always.

This is how God works.

It’s quite amazing, especially if you’re able to zoom out & see a greater picture…to see a larger part of the whole.

& realize, it’s all I. It’s all you. It’s all me. It’s all we. It’s all connected.

This is Soul.

The Pursuit of Consciousness

“If the words ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.”
-Terence McKenna

Yea that’s me, Psil Silva, happy with this psilocybin mushroom✌️😎🍄✨

Did the founding fathers experiment with psychedelics?

It’s possible. 

What we do know is that many of them smoked marijuana – at least experimented with it, & unlike Bill Clinton, they inhaled it.

How free are we if we are not allowed to experiment with our own consciousness???

^This is a very legit question, as well as a concern – the concern being our freedom being taken from us through crooked & corrupt lenses of perception who are solely concerned about power & control.

…because when we experiment with our consciousness we might see through the societal illusions that blind most people, & we might become free!

… One of the sad things about power & control is that it is driving humanity into destruction. It is self-destructing.

So we need an alternative.

Here I go.

Here we go.

Here it is — psychedelics.

One of the many questions we need to consider as a human species is, “how can we legally provide safe services & substances for people to experiment with their consciousness?”

The Psychedelic Trip Journal

I am a part-time perfectionist. 

There are some things that are worth being perfected, and some that don’t need as much attention. I often find myself writing twenty to forty or sometimes even a hundred lines of the same sentence — before feeling and knowing that it is complete.

It’s a blessing and a curse. (OCD much? haha)

This perfectionist attention was put into the making of The Psychedelic Trip Journal. & I’m all ears to improvements, so please send it all my way — the bad & good.


Overall, The Psychedelic Trip Journal is a great integration journal for the psilocybin & psychedelic experience.
