The trip begins
The trip begins!
About ten minutes to one hour after taking truffles, you start noticing the first effects (depending on the some factors like the ingested amount, if you have chewed properly and how full your stomach is). You may get funny, unexpected or strange thoughts. At this stage you often hear the question "Do you feel anything?" This is a sign of insecurity, you don’t feel it yet, and you become a bit restless. You go see if the door is closed or if you still have your keys and stuff. This period ,in which the active substances in your body just 'settle', is by many people regarded as less pleasant.
During the next phase, you feel very aware of your body, while you can get a little cold or mild nausea. By eating little previously and not moving too much, you will limit your nausea, which in most cases quickly passes. Rarely people throw up.
When there isn’t nausea, make sure you eat some fruits approximately half an hour after taking the truffles, so your blood sugar don’t gets too low (you can get cold or are shivering, which can disrupt work). Also during the trip itself, it’s good to occasionally drink a little fruit juice.
The first symptoms
Now, if you sit in the dark or close your eyes you may experience your first light hallucinations. Your pupils are wider.
At the moment we are about an hour in the trip and you feel your body getting heavier, while you still feel freer and happier. The things you see, like images and sounds around you, are more intense and wondrous, often surrounded by rainbows. You will see - even with your eyes closed – patterns and colours that you are unfamiliar with.
At this stage you can feel very emotional. You can easily focus on problems, memories or feelings. You realize things about your feelings, about the way you live or would want to live in relationship to others.
Things that normally are granted are suddenly very aware. This may be associated with feelings of happiness, love, gratitude or religious experiences but also with depression or despair.
Sometimes the trip starts with rigidity. You may feel that it pinche, and that there are blockades that must be overcome. At such moments it may feel like you are in an intermediate space: you're not where you started, but you're still not where you want to be either. In other words, the trip isn’t in full swing yet. This can feel very strange.
Especially with a high dose of truffles, you may feel negative feelings: “what have I done to myself”, a feeling of insecurity and a total loss of sense of time. Here the panic could knock you down and you’ll end up in a control loop, a loop that you do not dare to give in to. That can sometimes take hours and is called a 'bad trip'.
But in essence, it’s all about shifting your limits and the harder you work, the more you solve. Afterwards, bad trips are good trips. You learned something and didn’t sink in a daze.
Once you are in the whirlwind, the exit isn’t possible. It’s best to experience the journey and try to enjoy, it is often the fear that seduces your mind and body into a 'bad trip'.
If you really can’t stand you have to stop moving or you have to concentrate on ordinary things, like a walk outside, taking a shower (if not too cold) or cleaning.
Start trying to go to a pleasant, familiar environment. Going between the people isn’t always advisable.
Furthermore, it is a myth that people think they can fly during a trip. Flying takes place in the inner landscape. Even with high doses of psilocybin, mescaline and LSD-25, people are still aware of the normal laws of nature (such as gravity and the fact that we don’t have wings). Of course it’s not advisable to participate in traffic, but since even trying your shoes on will be difficult, you won’t be inclined to step into a car.
