Drugs are both a beautiful and terrifying experience, they essentially open the flood gates to the spiritual world and your subconscious mind. What many of them do is they completely shut down the left hemisphere of the brain and open up the beauties of the Right Hemisphere, some actually enable both such as Tryptamines. Tryptamines are very powerful in the fact that they present to you full Ego Death and Pure Christ Consciousness Unity. I find Drugs are best not to be used recreationally but moreso as tools of consciousness. I don’t think there is anything wrong with them as long as they are used appropriately, without abuse and most definitely in moderation. Too much drugs on the body will leave you very imbalanced and ungrounded within the physical plane. I personally don’t believe they hinder spiritual progress. I know there is a lot of guilt and taboo around the New Age community about how drugs are bad because they are chemicals but guess what your entire BODY chemistry is made of chemicals don’t forget 🙂
I also think it’s vastly important to research before experimenting, you don’t want to go in blind especially if you are hard on letting go. You want to be open to experience and the best advice i could give anyone is remember you are always in control. When we think about drugs we have to understand that what they are doing to our bodies is that they are changing our brain chemistry usually tied into the blood brain barriers and different alcaloides. Psychedelics are extremely powerful subconscious alchemical substances that are essentially like looking into your mind. This is why they are full of delusions and also pure intellectual clarity because what they provide are essentially a road map in the Tree of Life of your own inner mind.
However i also want to strongly state the beauty of psychedelics is realizing that you also don’t need them to get to these states because they show you, you are infinite, eternal, energy, pure oneness. They are a tool in the same way that tarot cards or divination are a tool for our intuition. Drugs are a tool towards understanding not only ourselves and our mind but the universe and the world we live in. They are truly a beautiful thing to experience but like all things common sense should always be taken in as well. I personally enjoy Tryptamines over all of them, though i have had many great discoveries with phenethylamines and a few others. I don’t enjoy dissociatives, i find them to be too disconnected and isolated from reality. They aren’t a good time in my book.
Regardless i believe all drugs should be taken with great care, in good company with those you trust and a safe environment. However the most important thing of all is realizing you are drugs and don’t need the tools as the mind is the most powerful creature to behold <3
That’s my two cents 🙂
