Prior to my first psilocybin experience I was feeling depressed for several months. That’s when I decided to try psilocybin. Me and one close, experienced friend who guided me went on this journey together. It was on the last day of winter. This night was one of the most magical nights of my life.
If my depression was a hole, psilocybin was a hand reached out in help. It allowed me to live in the moment, it allowed me to think freely, it put an end the incessant and endless repetition of words and thoughts inside my head, it allowed me to be me. It unlocked a way of thinking that I haven’t felt in years. It was childlike Wonder all over again.
At the end of the night, me and my friend went to the beach to an outcrop over the water. It was raining heavily, very windy, and the ocean was roaring, but we weren’t bothered. We both felt as if each breath was worth gold. Completely connected with nature and the universe and life itself, it was enough to move me to tears.
This experience, without a doubt, will be remembered as one of the most profound experiences I have ever lived.
