Psychedelic Healing #1

Self-reflection

Psychedelic Healing #1
Alex Grey “Albert Hoffman”

Welcome to my page!

Let me start by introducing myself, and explain why I’ve decided to do this.

Before I continue, however, I’d like to state that I do NOT condone the use of legal, or illegal, substances. This is strictly educational, and whatever you choose to do with this information is at your own risk.

Now that that’s out of the way, my name’s Elias, and I used to be a troublesome child. As I got older, I matured a lot; however, many of the traits from your childhood remain with you throughout adulthood. As a teenager, I was very irritable, anxious, and generally not a good person.

Fast forward a few years: I’m calm and relaxed most of the time, have become more selfless, and my life has taken a turn for the best. I’ve completely transformed myself into a new man, and that’s all thanks to Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (a.k.a. LSD-25, LSD, Acid, Alice, Blotter, etc...). Now I know what you’re thinking, “What a Hippie!”, “F***ing Junkie”. Let me explain to you why LSD is not a recreational drug, but rather a powerful healing tool.

LSD (along with psilocybin mushrooms, Diemethyltryptamine, Mescaline) belongs to a class of drugs called Psychedelics (“Psyche”=Mind; “Delic”= Clear, Manifest). In a therapeutic setting, psychedelics break down the mental barriers you’ve been building your whole life. Due to this, you see everything for what it is, instead of what you’ve been taught to see.

I will regularly be writing about the various benefits, but will be focusing on self-reflection for this post. LSD does not only make you see your surroundings from a different perspective, it also helps you see within your own mind and self. Self-reflection is a lot harder than many think, at least proper self-reflection. No matter what, depending on our mental state, we see ourselves as better, or worse than we really are. This is where LSD comes in. With zero bias on yourself, you’re able to figure out exactly who you are. It’s useful to keep a notepad around to write down your thoughts as your mind will be racing, and you want to be able to pull something positive out of every psychedelic “trip”.

One trip is all it took to make me realize all the harm I was doing to those around me, among other things.

As I’ve stated, psychedelics are tools. And they are incredibly powerful tools. If you’re used to using drugs of any sort, I must warn you that a certain level of respect towards the substance is absolutely necessary. This isn’t a drug to abuse, and if you disrespect this substance, it will not treat you well.

Thank you for reading.
