It was a cloudy evening, I had acquired an eighth of psilocyban mushrooms, I was not prepared. I started off this evening by first ingesting about 1.5 grams, after I started feeling there initial effects I went into the bathroom and tried to take a shower I started to feel very anxious as if time was running out, like the veil between ordinary reality and the spirit realm had merged.
I got out of the shower and went into my bedroom and unfortunately ate the rest of the bag. I sat on the floor, and I started feeling a connection to something I really didn't want to feel connected to.
I started feeling a connection to something I really didn't want to feel connected to.
after about 15 minutes of sitting there I started getting startled by this strange presence something gave me the idea of going into the other bathroom where there was a tub and taking a bath. Although I didn't I found in that moment that something was truly off I believe I had made a connection to the spirit world and that what I was experiencing was the essence of the old mushrooms themselves how they were not that fresh and they were probably laying around for like 3 months maybe they had been exposed to too much oxygen idk. So I tried to get my bearings but this presence was like so concerned and it was intrusive so like a moron rather than just sitting still I kept pacing then I went outside hoping the sun would shine a little bit of light and clear up this situation. But I just kept having to face what I'd call the wall of mirrors and when I did I'd turn around and walk away from it but it just kept following me. I guess it was the residual reflection of the wall of mirrors we have in our home, horrible place to trip.
So I picked up my cell phone and dialed 911. To my astonishment when the operator picked up in my mind I heard a little voice say prisoner transfer section s and than a incoherent siren go off than I said I ate mushrooms I'm freaking out. I forget what the operator said except for that EMTts will arrive shortly. When they did I walked over to them and they asked me if I am ok I said I dont know I just can't see the sun and I feel like I'm outside then they violently loaded me into the ambulance I think and clearly they were in a rush. As I was laying there I first felt sharp piercing feelings in my groin and stomach like the EMTs had poked me with large needles this was very strange maybe it was lasers but all of this is just speculation. As we were riding to the hospital it felt like I was going between different dimensions something was up for sure. I started really coming up and I got the white light experience but I was not entirely comfortable. I dont know what words were said by that time but when we got to the hospital they brought me inside and administered a shot of I believe Ativan and possibly some other nasty pharmaceutical. I kept closing my eyes and it was as if I was traveling through a tunnel and that usual brilliant fungus light was prevalent and I would go from that state of mind in place to being thousands of feet above me looking down and going between that height and where I was. I felt the presence now of what I believe to be archangel Michael giving me strength and allowing me to observe this situation from the perspective of truly gaining knowledge of my place in time and space reassuring me that I would not lose sight of what kept me grounded.
I really went further away from where I was and I started to feel very cold this lasted for 5 or 6 hours I cant remember if they had used 4 point restraints to restrain me or not if they did it was definitely not necessary because I was truly at peace but I did feel at times deep feelings of fear and that caused me excruciating pain like I could not escape. Eventually as the magic wore off I began to realize that I would not be being going home for like a week and that I would have to bear through this entrapment and cohere to their demands in the lovely state of Florida until I was partially a zombie from the effects of antipsychotics and I'm injections of lorezapam not to mention. That I was now considered a criminal because I had ingested an ancient shamanic tool and that well I was probably already on the local law enforcement radar but now I'd be in their system. Whatever, I was never the same after going through the mental health systems judgement I guess I can say that our society is not appropriately equipped to handle people exploring their consciousness in the open I guess it threatens the systems that are in place, its just not friendly and if someone has a bad trip and ends up getting kidnapped instead of getting taken care of by people they trust, it could be detrimental, not to say I was legit abducted but it sure felt like I was.
