I had read many trip reports all over the web before getting my first 1/8th of shrooms. I thought I knew what I was getting into and figured I knew what to expect as far as effects. I was completely wrong. I hadn't eaten that day so I knew I was going to trip hard, but up until it happened I didn't know what that meant for me.

My first visual was the carpet at my friends house doing little swirls. We went for a walk to get some fresh air and I noticed my first amazing visual. His drive way looked like ice was covering it and all the pine needles looked like tiny koi fish swimming underneath this ice. I was blown away by this visual as it soon began to melt and slide down the slanted driveway. I soon realized that my personality had drifted away and I had become a new person inside. It was like everything I saw was brand new to me and words that I spoke seemed foreign.

After an hour since ingestion I noticed that I could sense different things in my body, when I stood I could actually feel things moving, when I stood and faced a new wall an overpowering sensation would force itself into my body like I was trapped in a wall and someone had rotated abruptly. I realized when I focused my attention to my feet that the sensation of focusing on them would multiply itself by the thousand and I could feel my feet morph into the ground like they were rooting themselves in like a tree. I felt very euphoric throughout the majority of the trip I could not stop laughing for what seemed like hours. Time was literally a lost concept, when I thought about when I needed to be home I could come up with the numbers but I didnt make sense of them in my head.

After about 2 hours I left my friends house because his mom was coming home and we headed to the safe house we had set up. Luckily we found a friend of ours to drive us. When we entered I could feel waves of energy pass through my body when I opened the door. I parked my ass on this kids bed and I once again morphed into it and stayed for about 3 hours. This is where I would peak in my trip. I closed my eyes to see if I had closed eye visuals and I could see these visual like my eyes were open. All these random colors and the occasional fractal. Weird patterns lines and motions were everywhere random images like trees buildings and scenes I had never seen before appeared. And then it hit me. I felt like I was hurled through time into another world. Things were not as clear as before but I remember rapidly jumping from all these different places. Random places. Like forests, deserts, houses, mountains. Hundreds of these places seemed to fly through and as fast as it came it was gone.

After this OBE my open eye visuals were enhanced greatly as well as the distortion of sound. My friends ceiling looked like snow at first and I could see little ants moving around rapidly on it. Then each ant formed into small crystals first green then red alternating back and forth. From there I don't remember all too much but it my trip was slowly fading away.

About 6 hours after ingestion I looked back on everything that had happened and I felt very accomplished and knowledgeable. So many thing went through my mind. I created random philosophies about why things worked the way the do in the world and I vaguely remember this being the majority of my conversations. After this trip I literally felt more in touch with the world and more knowledgeable. I could feel everythings position in the world as well I knew exactly where it was positioned and could feel its force within my body.
