Psychedelic Journey



A psychedelic journey is the altered state of consciousness experienced when one consumes a psychedelic substance such as psilocybin, ayahuasca, LSD, or DMT. Depending on the substance used, a variety of different experiences can occur, ranging from heightened senses, states of euphoria or peacefulness, vivid mental imagery, and even mystical or spiritual encounters. A person can also experience a “bad trip,” which can include feelings of anxiety, paranoia, agitation, confusion, or even psychotic episodes. While some believe that difficult trips can be doorways to important growth opportunities, it is highly recommended that anyone seeking a psychedelic experience is aware of the risks and does so with a “trip sitter,” someone who can keep an eye on the person and ensure they remain safe while journeying.
