How psychedelic "Drugs" can actually help you overcome problems and learn things about yourself!

in life •  2 years ago


Isn't it crazy how much is hidden in our subconscious? 

There's so much going on inside of us, yet we could never find out about it if we don't experience it through the use of "drugs". 

I put drugs in quotation marks because for me, what I'm referring to here are not actually drugs. 

I'm talking about Ayahuasca, magic mushrooms, DMT or MDMA - these substances are not just 'drugs'.

Of course you can misuse them, but if you really have a plan before taking them and do it for the right cause with the right intentions, you can achieve such an incredible experience and learn so much about yourself !! 

When I took mushrooms for the first time, it was a few months after a breakup. 

I wasn't particularly depressed, but I didn't really know what to do with my life. I was looking for a purpose, but had no idea where to find it. 

That trip made me realize what I really wanted, it made me realize what makes me happy and what I want to do. 

Also, it allowed me to look at the breakup situation from a different point of view, I realized the mistakes hat I had made and that I didn't want to be that person. 

Clearer than ever before, I saw my flaws and I also know that it was possible for me to overcome them. 


My next goal will be to try DMT, it's unfortunately very hard to get but I hope it'll find me when the time is right. 

DMT is an extremely spiritual "drug", I have read many trip reports of people experiencing a spiritual awakening, realizing a lot about their life or the world in general, and being blown away after the experience. These people often had a completely different mindset, and simply viewed the world differently.

if you use it with the right intention, "drugs" can be very beneficial to your mental health and personal growth, I agree !!


Absolutely it's all about intent. Not that there's anything wrong with thinking - I want to get F%^KED up. That was my 20's - but now, I've become a shroom snob, glaring down my nose at those who just want to get crazy on it - for me it's all about a journey. I am so unfun on shrooms...I just want to close my eyes, listen to this shamanic flute with fire crackling on YouTube, and meet my guides, who called themselves the pall bearer-ers of time, told me I'd lived and died 100,000 times, and showed me eternity in the span of a second, I lived an entire life that night....

I know it sounds nuts to any non-partakers....<3 this post!

sadly, our society has such a bad stigma around psychedelics, that they don't even try to see the positive aspects of it.

that's so interesting to hear about a different perspective on these psychedelics! thx for sharing your personal experience.

very insightful. I've never tried psychedelics so I wouldn't know about the benefits, but it's interesting to hear how you gained more insight into your subconscious. upvoted
