Got a very tranquil trip, unexpected. Pushing serotonin in my head.

Glad I read from someone having had the same experience. Felt a bit strange with my experiences. Now everything heals very quickly.

The serotonine system is flooded by psilocin, so now wonder you are experiencing these kind of effects. I am also very much in sedated like state, completely relaxed - at higher doses at least. I'm not sure about the complete effects of the two drugs you reference, but they also must have some effect on the serotonine system in another way, that might explain the similarity you feel.
I have experienced cocaine too but not so much that I can make a link between it and the psilocybin experience.
Yawning is a common effect - I can't stop doing that while tripping on mushrooms. I don't feel like it has an effect on the experience though like you both mention, at least I haven't noticed any direct effect - I think it might be a automatic reaction to the effect mushrooms have. Also, my eyes tear a lot in combination with the yawning, it must look very weird/sad, I know! A friend of mine doesn't have these two effects, I'm not sure why that is.
The visions you mention are wonderful, these are why I explore psychedelics - you should feel blessed to be able to get into that state - many people can't.

Thank you for answering. The tearing I also don't have but I heard about it before.
I guess these effects with the yawning come about because the shrooms are activating dormant neuronal networks in the brain.
For instance I thought about it feels like being on cocaine - whoosh it hit me that way.
I think about travelling to the great pyramid - whoosh I am there (I visited the pyramid once in person, so my brain had built neuronal network associated with it).
I think the yawning is pushing the serotonin level in my brain - so it does.
Obviously it has to do with the synapses in the brain. So many of them get fired up that have been laying dormant for so many years.
It depends on what you think about during the trip. Everything that happened in that trip happened in my brain. It's been not real but so true to the observer! And the observer is real, definitely.
The resulting healing is objective and true, it's manifesting in life as a fact.
As you mention by the end of your comment, it was a true blessing having had that experience. I understand now why the indigenous people use it for diagnosis and healing.
Good that I obtained some books about the indigenous people of Mexico and their use of mushrooms and peyote.
I develop great respect for the teachings the mushrooms give me. I realize there is a true spiritual path for me to go.
You can use it for having fun and party-style entertainment, but at the same time it hits you strongly when you realize your deepest desires and longings.
It really gets you that way into your deepest issues to clear that up and heal.
Wonderful I feel so good today!

I started this hobby with intention to heal my depression aswell and with great success. When my new doctor diagnosed me with PTSD (no i was not ever in a war) and started naming all these drugs from lithium to welbutrin after having a bad experience with zoloft, it depressed me more knowing that im truly a nut. Not anymore. No more doctors for me. I feel great day to day. Ive gained confidence in myself. My house is always kept up now i dont feel like the smallest task is impossible. Flashbacks of negative things that happend and have not happend almost never occur now. People at work dont piss me off as much lol. I stopped playing my video games and started playing my guitar again. I feel alive for the first time in years.
As far as the visuals go they are amazing. Its like a totally new world. Mushrooms truly changed my life.

I recognize the intentions you guys put into this regarding healing. I too started this up seeing that psychedelics helped me gain certain insights to heal. Got into mushrooms because it is just the safest of them all and still able to get you into deep mental space.
Recently I realized that there is nothing left really to fix (psychedelics showed me his as well) or heal in that sense. The last time I used it there was no longer this story arch about fixing myself, I think I no longer need it for that. Now I only have the intention to explore. Last time I got the feeling I was standing at the gates of that exploratory field - but at the time I didn't step through - just watched the gatekeeper for a while, which was calm but also dark and somewhat daunting. It has been a while, almost two years now. Going back in very soon!
