You may have heard about psychedelics (psilocybin in particular) as a therapy for mental discomfort. If so, do some reading about the nature of the experience. Users report “feeling the ego dissolve – it’s still there, just not in control anymore.” Brain activity scans show that under the influence, disconnected centers of the brain start to exchange information. While the effect doesn’t last, patients later report that they are more sensitive to “life energy” in things that they previously considered inanimate.
News flash: this is just what happens when you are in trance. Even better, a capable hypnotherapist can teach you practices that allow you to evolve the capability to manage the transition from normal to trance states. This is a life skill that doesn’t require clinical support.
So, before you try magic mushrooms, consider hypnotherapy.
