Psilocybin Mushrooms Ceremony
of psilocybin-containing mushrooms also known as magic mushrooms has been long
traced to historic healing rituals of the ancient Celts. They were however
banned in the late 1960s as criticisms were made against them.
are finally regaining popular interest and many experts believe they hold the
key to treating mental illnesses such as anxiety disorder, addiction, and
to once again legalize the use of psilocybin-containing mushrooms (also called
the psilocybin ceremony), has never been louder.
wonders hold the key to the open-mindedness and surrender needed to trigger the
healing process from anxiety. We are so engrossed in the ‘what will be?’ and
have lost touch with our present selves. We are failing to see that our existence
is a gift and ‘the now’ should be cherished.
The psilocybin ceremony enables us to let go of the ‘bad outcome’ mind-set to embrace ‘all that can be’; an awakening to a mind full of peace and free from worry. The mind possesses an infinite potential to heal itself and the psilocybin mushrooms unlock this potential.
The psilocybin ceremony seeks to enlighten the mind and take it to a transcended level of perception.
Sakuda, a terminally ill patient gave this narrative of her psilocybin
experience in the New York Times before she died:
‘I could feel the negative emotions in me start to gather until it became a dense mass… it felt alive. I broke into tears as I felt everything within me become concentrated, then start to fade away… I was suddenly made to realize that this anxiety, this irrational fear of death was standing in the way of my living the little time I had left to the fullest.’
Psilocybin for Living Fully
ceremony is nature’s struggle to correct the anxious mind by forcing it to face
its fears. Like a mother, she wants to assure and comfort you that tomorrow is
going to be just fine.
Geier, a writer whose work has featured in many posts of top-notch news
agencies gives another narrative of her psilocybin mushroom experience. She had
been a victim of anxiety disorder and accompanying depression for years.
According to her, therapy helped and she usually felt better after sessions,

participants suddenly feel an overwhelming joy during the experience and laugh
at even the slightest of things. From a chirping bird on a tree to water

Microdosing vs. Ceremony Dose
micro-dosing, you spread the dosage into different stages over about a month
and taking about a tenth of the normal dosage for a complete trip at a time.
There are little to no hallucinogenic/visual effects and it helps lighten
mood gradually over time.
Full ceremony dose involves much larger dosages than micro-trips and will cause visual perceptions to change and you will feel deeply connected to the love of the universe. You will experience dramatic events; happy or scary, but will all lead you to a place of deep enlightenment and renewal of your sense of purpose.
It is ideal to seek the help of a guide, therapist or shaman before you try a full trip as a first-timer, as the experience can be overwhelming. The Shaman should guide the ceremony and experience acting as a gatekeeper and vessel to the the healing powers of the Universe. The Shaman does not heal, just calls on those powers to be available.
