Psychedelics, such as psilocybin, DMT/ayahuasca and mescaline, allow us to access states of consciousness that would take a long time to reach otherwise. Similar altered states can be reached with meditation, yoga and in a dream-like state. Whilst psychedelics can be a useful tool in facilitating the expansion of our consciousness, we must not become reliant upon them. The psychedelic experience is powerful and must not exhausted. Abuse a psychedelic and it abuses you. They are not here to be taken recreationally. One must go in with good intentions, for example one might set the intention that they want to learn more about our deep inherent connection with nature and each other. This will certainly become more apparent in the altered psychedelic state.
