“Wear Sunscreen” is an essay turned into a commencement speech & is one of my favorites – My psilocybin experiences have helped me understand these words all the more.
Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, was a leader of The Merry Pranksters along with his best friend Ken Babbs.
Before Kesey was an author, he was a student at Stanford University – & while he was there, in 1960 he voluntarily participated in a military experiment testing the effects of mind altering drugs. He was given LSD & it changed his life forever, in incredible ways.
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.
The title says it all.
Plus I left in a “blooper” at the beginning of the episode a little after the 1 minute intro (same with episode 14).
You may have heard of the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, but how is it related to the psilocybin experience?
To my psilocybin experiences?
I share two important messages from this book, & quotes, all related to epiphanies I experienced on psilocybin.
The story of how Richard Alpert became Ram Dass – It all began with psilocybin.
I was a sophomore in college.
The year was 2010.
It was a beautiful Spring day.
The story of psilocybin’s first and greatest impact in my life. Heartfelt.
My life was forever changed.
How do you like the vocal sound in this one? (when episode begins around 1 minute) Trying something new. Let me know via in the comments or via instagram DM @psilocybinstories. Thanks!
Learn how journaling can be used for therapeutic purposes as well as for making sense of your psilocybin experiences!
My first psychedelic experience induced in me epiphanies so profound that I wondered if it was possible to obtain them in my everyday life. This is where my integration process first began — a seed of thought that would later blossom into the physical world.
Einstein explains this scientific phenomenon:
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
Months later going into my second psychedelic experience I was prepared to take notes to try and capture the essence of this ineffable dimension (This inspired The Psychedelic Trip Journal).
