Preparation and Integration / Re: Integration
« on: May 06, 2018, 02:36:15 AM »
Hi there mrnothing -
it seems that physical activity helps greatly with reactivations, grounding especially but being in nature, swimming, running and yes, yoga. In terms of the blank canvas effect, this is not uncommon and can occur with other psychedelics too. What I would suggest is start trying new things in order to build up new connections to meaningful actions... learn an instrument, learn a language, try painting or drawing, or anything creative, volunteer something that could use your help... the sense of being in service is really valuable.
all the best,
Flux

Suggestion Box / Re: Active Topics
« on: May 02, 2018, 10:18:41 PM »
Yes - that looks great, a good way to make sure topics and replies are not missed. I still find the sizing/layout quite difficult to fully engage with on my phone.

General Discussion / Re: Building up tolerance

Hi Ted696,

I would agree that this is a lot to use. In my experience unless the revelations from the experience are being integrated properly and embodied fully. then the medicines will cease to provide guidance (which may manifest as tolerance). There is also some recent suggestion that increased risk of valvular heart disease from activating the 5HT2-B receptors -though "5-MeO-DMT has the weakest interaction with both the three 5-HT2 receptors and the two paradigmatic 5-HT2 receptors (5-HT2A/C)" and seems to be most active on the 5-HT7.

Ray, T 2010, Psychedelics and the human Receptorome http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0009019

In any case, I have found regular use of 5-MeO (fortnightly or weekly at most) to be most conducive to healing at sub-breakthrough doses: i.e. 5-10mg. What I gain from this is a clearing of the energetic patterns of 'blockage' stored in the body, freeing the nervous system of conditioned response and allowing the electrical signals to flow more freely - this is best utilised as a compliment to with other embodiment practices like Qi-Gong, Yoga, Tai-Chi or even just something like swimming or hiking.

hope this helps,

cheers,

Thanks Roundabout,


very useful as even after a year or two of not being at University, I have lost my access to academic databases. Have used Sci-Hub a few times with not much luck unfortunately. I think they simply didn't have the articles I was after. So are there other free-access sites like this

Hoa Mai,


It was a pleasure to join you in ceremony too bro  :)


As my second experience with the Toad itself as well, it truly surpassed the first in terms of intensity, depth, release, presence, and healing. It is so interesting to see how different practitioners work with this medicine given its open nature in terms of the ceremonial space, psychic container it is served in, the techniques used and modalities incorporated. The gradual 'ramping up' approach is certainly a methodology I have seen work wonders for those who like to acclimatise to the space with ayahuasca and even Changa (rather than the more sudden strong onslaught of the peak experience of strong medicine) and seems to work well here too.


I am still attempting to discern the nuanced qualitative differences between synthetic 5-MeO and Toad venom and I am beginning to think that these may have more to do with venom being a freebase (as it felt akin to synthetic freebase 5-MeO, as opposed to HcL salt). That being said there was a point in which I felt a strong connecting to the Toad, to Mexico, and to some deep forgotten ancestral linegage (that I felt certain enough to speculate have existed... even though at this point in Western history no anthropological evidence exists to prove this outside of allusions to Bufo Alvarius through iconography).


And please post your first article (maybe keep practitioner names anonymous here too- this one more so than the first)

Awesome - many thanks brother  _/|\_  :)

Great to hear about your first experience after all your preparation Gurudedicationananda,


yes indeed, 5-MeO is not always about the 'full release breakthrough' and like most tryptamines have much to teach us in the lesser-deep waters in which we can splash, wade or swim with ease...and a purely instinctive meditative state can flow beautifully here.


An ashtray with sand in it works wonderfully for placing a glass vaping pipe down on :)

Different Julian I think you'll find, but I'm assured 'ole mate Carpe DMT will be posting some fascinating research into 5-meo containing plants here very soon :)

Yes, there are many reports online as to the psychoactivity of 5-OH-DMT and its structure alone should give this away. https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Bufotenin
Would be great to see if any members here have (or can create) a pdf copy of this book too

Hiya James,


Great to have you over here and I look forward to your contributions... also much respect for recognising those opportunities with Martin, Gerry, and others as as somehow 'not the right time'., this takes a finely tuned intuition and well-developed level of discernment that I have seen many unable or unwilling to apply in such situations. Anyway, thank you for all that you do for the psychedelic community at large :)


cheers,


Flux

Hi Julian,


Thanks for checking us out, love the blog and really enjoyed your book... I like to recommend it to people just beginning this path and those in deepening their relationship with psychedelic substances and looking to explore the potentialities a little further,


cheers,
