I ate 10g of dried A. muscaria a while ago and the only thing I really felt was that life was dream-like. Everything I saw and did just had this unreal quality to it, like I was just floating along. No euphoria, or knowledge gained for me that time. is pretty much how I felt on them
The alkaloid content from fruit to fruit tends to vary quite a bit.....I found the earlier summer/late spring fruits to be pretty intense........just be careful as you could/will find some that are quite potent.....IME
Again I reiterate that these are not something for the average mushroom advocate either................
What are your experiences with them Arathu?
I am not sure what an, 'average mushroom advocate' is in your opinion but I would veer more to the shaman side I would say. Perhaps I will give them another try when I check my local hunting spots.
Right...as soon as you say "shaman side" now you're talking where I went with it. (average mushroom advocate) IMHO being the "party" types or just curious kind of young (or not so young) folks looking for a good time. (I know stereo typing and all) A. Muscaria is not a shroom for parties IMHO......... And I was not implying that you were taking things lightly either....... Just to be clear................
"Called" is the way I like to look at it..........and way more than not lately, I just say hello and give them a drink of my water....... I had a series of experiences with them where two or three sun dried caps left me drooling, stumbling around, and without a solid time reference for awhile................. it was a meeting between us for lack of any better description.......
I certainly wish you a good relationship with them.............they can be a very powerful ally but that's between you and them..........and anyone taking them lightly may very well get a good strong negative message.
For certain I have a personal relationship with these mushrooms and I encourage everyone that is even just a little curious to meditate with them and try to connect if just in feeling and intuition before ever ingesting them. (which by the way is what I call INTIMATE communication)
