I am thrilled to feature this diligently written experiential report of an end-of-the-year psychedelic experience undergone at the Miami Botanical Garden. Please enjoy this ZOOMDOUT Mushroom Trip Report.
Maya Gold: The Garden, The Stargate and Divine Communion
Substance: PE (P. Cubensis)
Dose: 2.5 grams
Setting: Miami Botanical Garden
Shulgin Rating Scale: 3, 4.
I was able to get a half ounce of some extremely potent penis envies. I turned them into chocolates which I coined as "Maya Gold" due to the gold foil I wrapped them in. I put 2 grams in each chocolate. I have done plenty of DMT, Salvia Divinorum and psychedelic mushrooms (level 3/4 experience) before but none of those experiences ever came close to this one.
After planning this trip for a week with my friend Jason, the time had finally arrived, the evening of December 28th, 2014. It was a nice Miami Sunday. My friend Jason came over to my condo in Brickell and we debated for about an hour whether to take these, or not. While I was very optimistic about the whole scenario, Jason was trying to reason with the reality of the time frame, set and setting. After debating we decided against doing them, but then my friend Z (a shaman friend who provided me with the PE mushrooms) called exactly at the moment we were about to call the trip off, and convinced Jason and I to take the sacrament. We ate the Maya Gold with ease and started driving to this botanical garden for our journey. The time was 6:30 pm.
I took an extra .5 grams of raw mushroom since I had tripped on 2 grams about a week prior to this particular trip. Jason started driving to the botanical garden that was visually stimulating and had really cool glass art streaming throughout the nature trails.
The Medicine hit me within 30 minutes and I was back to that dreamy “shroomy” place. We arrived to the botanical garden and after Jason used the restroom once the mushrooms started kicking in for him.
We walked all the way to the end of the nature trail and found a bench under some welcoming trees. I chose to trip at Fairchild Botanical Gardens to be in a rural environment but there was a point it didn't matter where I was because all the molecules of this dimension merged with other dimensions. By this time (a little over an hour) the medicine kicked in hard. The physical third dimension started breaking down into molecular fractals and fused with the hyper etheric dimensions. All dimensions were indistinguishable from each other and defied linguistic explanation. At one point I closed one eye and left the other open to experiment. I was halfway in the inner dimension and outer dimension but then it got to a point where it didn't matter. Eyes opened or closed, I was completely transfigured and enveloped within hyperspace. It appeared that all of the dimensional realms were both macrocosmic and microcosmic at the same time.
I surfed the universe and the molecular world by basking in the infinite with the help of some entities. I gave myself completely and wholly to the infinite source of all creation and emanated the vibration of unconditional love and pure gratefulness to the presence of the ancient eternal. I was in an encompassing state of pure awe and bliss—completely disconnected from my body with 360 degree vision. A sensation of initiation overtook me as I became a benevolent entity myself. It became apparent that I was privileged to surf the sacred dimensions. I thought I've astrally projected before through deep meditation, but this was the real deal.
There was one transcendental being I met and remembered vividly. It materialized, within the light encoded dimension and came down upon me to greet me. Its head was huge and cone like. It took up my whole vision. It peered deep into my soul. It had an oval shaped head with photonic fractaling eyes making up its existential structure and existence. This interaction took place for a short period before we bided our farewells. My closed eye visuals (CEV) were extremely intense, and Mandelbrot-like, so I decided to walk out about 50 feet into a moonlit pasture by a lake.
I looked up at the moon and the whole sky was melting and swaying away. The stars were extremely vibrant and almost felt like they were saying hello to me. The light from the moon became so complex as it came down and started forming transparent Merkabahs of light all around the earth. I decided to walk back to the bench, which was now a Stargate.
As I sat back down on the Stargate bench and drifted off, I felt the psilocybin ripping through every cell of my body until the density of my physical body dissolved away and I became a full light body. By transforming into a ball of light-energy I was fully able to surf through Hyperspace.
The only way I can describe the Hyperspace environment is to compare it to the movie scenes from the Matrix where everything becomes a green tinted computer reality code, except it was infinite sacred light matter, living geometry and God's presence.
As I was astral projecting through this reality I came upon a society. It was city-like—made of energetic emeralds, jewels and fractals. This jeweled, energetic fractal city was a society for entities that dwelled in this place. I was suspended in hyperspace, hovering by this city of light. It didn't matter what position I was in physically because my astral body took no form, in fact I lost complete contact with my physical form and only knew my astral form for some time. I experienced complete ego death, melting and stripping away my layers until I was reborn again spiritually.
I met many entities. Good and bad. I remember when Jason started talking about how he sees evil entities as well, and my awareness shifted to these beings that were in disguise and then revealed themselves in the Hyperspatial void. I greeted my demons and instead of fighting them, I accepted them as part of my reality and they subsided shortly. They took the form of humanoid elfin jesters with menacing grins.
Time was non-existent and non-linear so I felt as if I intentionally time-traveled thousands of years back, etherically, to an emotional coordinate in space and time where my soul and Jason’s soul were interacting at some point.
Once we realized it was 9:30 PM I told Jason that we had to start collecting ourselves and gain some composure. It was time to leave the Stargate bench and head home. The park closed at 9:00 PM and we were already well past our time to leave. Park security was patrolling and we knew they’ve seen us. As we walked to the car, Jason was freaking out about driving home. I couldn’t blame him. Our realities were still warping out of control. We couldn't even figure out how to turn the radio on. I then told Jason to trust God, the mushroom and the spirits to guide us back safely. The first 15 minutes of driving was so extreme. Lights, roads, cars, trees and everything in our vision was melting into each other. We had to focus on the lines on the road a few feet in front of us to drive accordingly.
Once we got to Coconut Grove, traffic slowed down and our realities were not as hectic as before. Things started to simmer down. We finally made it back to my condo in Brickell. We smoked some herb around this indigenous sacred site called "The Miami Circle" (connected to my building) which is famed for being one of eastern United States most prolific archeological discoveries. I somehow felt the spirits of the natives with me as we sat around the circle and smoked. Jason was good to drive and we said our farewells
I went into this journey with the intention to engage a sacred communion with transcendental intelligences and higher realms of existence to integrate knowledge into my life. I am now liberated. I wish I was exaggerating about my experience, but to be perfectly honest, I'm barely scratching the surface. Ever since that day, I haven't been the same. I feel as if I have shed many of my egotistical layers. I am more carefree. My senses and vibration feel more heightened; my dreams are more lucid and vibrant. Perspectives and priorities have completely shifted. The sacrament has healed me in so many ways. From now on I will only take the hallowed mushroom in a spiritual, medicinal and shamanistic manner. I feel these are not meant for recreational usage to consume at parties and watch carpets and walls move. This is solely meant as a gateway into the celestial domains (if enough is consumed).
I strongly feel that if our new age ways can learn to use the sacred mushroom for divine communion with the eternal we can initiate a rapid launch in consciousness evolution, and also strip away the layers of the ego; which could subsequently lead us closer to our true selves and to a better world.
