So, on an empty stomach, I took 2.0g of dried powder cubes (brazilian strain) with a bit of honey. Three and half hours later, not on an empty stomach anymore, I took an added 1.5g in hopes to get me beyond the threshold I was clearly sensing....but it didn't do much of a difference....which didn't surprise me.
Considering that I had done some microdosing three times that week and may have built some tolerance do you think 3.0g for next dose sounds correct?
I'm looking to step up from last experience, which I'll describe shortly to give a general idea of the level I was at.
From start I had an attitude of not getting involved with any hallucination. First abnormality I noticed was of things looking bloated, fat and round. Most things didn't have straight edges, they were rounded instead. Most particularly my forearm looked this way and the color was like yellowish and not pleasant looking...no biggie. I don't think I experienced any heighten color perception or brightness. Not in the beginning at least.
I was having mood swings and was feeling some stomach discomfort...nothing too bad and I was still on an empty stomach.
Had a meal...nothing big.
Felt some restlessness and uneasiness but tried to keep calm and just go with it.
Thought watch this video (and others on this channel) from dear Terence mkenna
And in there changed my experience and I achieved a very desirable state that I now look forward to achieve, at least, on every trip. The medium I'll be using to get me there are videos like the above and others I can find that have similar animations.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR NEW TRIPPERS as it changed my perception of things and made me connect to that higher state of mind. I would lose myself staring at the pictures/animations on this video and others from the same channel....I'm pretty sure these videos were made for this purpose.
I would find myself staring at these visuals and be aware of operating at a higher "frequency", that's how I felt like calling it, that were of a smarter person. There were no doubts in my thoughts....These were not thoughts of the mind cause I wasn't feeling any emotions....just knowledge and realization of things.
I kept having mood swings and some stomach discomfort that would come up if I, for whatever reason, went away from my room to quickly get into any regular activity with relatives..etc.
I can conclude that in my case I didn't have a good set or setting and struggled a little until I discovered these videos as a way to reach the higher state. I did go and tried revisiting a fantastic DMT visualization video that has the greatest visuals but that was not working as well for me cause it's only the visual and some weird noises that may be more fitted for a deeper state.
I felt at the edge of some breakthrough that I was certain was waiting for me but I realized I needed to upper the dose and 3 1/2 hours from first dosage I took an extra 1.5g.
I continued enjoying the trip but it didn't increase to that higher level...the extra I took didn't provide the results I was looking for but I guess it made the experience last longer.
Some 1 1/2 later I felt very tired and comfortably sleepy, went to bed and started playing some isochronic tones I have for meditation. I didn't fall asleep and instead got into this quiet deep thinking I have only achieved once or twice in my life after lots of effort in progressive relaxation and self hipnosis meditation sections several years ago. I laid there for about two hours then felt like getting up. The experience started washing off about 2 hours later.
I learned that the body symptoms (slight stomach discomfort) would come up along with the negative/or ordinary thoughts, when I would venture away from the calm state. If I would go back and focused on the video, for example, I then would reach this higher level and have no more bodily feelings etc.
