Shrooms/LSD + Meditation
I’m attempting to meditate while on LSD or shrooms in the next couple weeks.
Quick background about my tripping past. First time I took acid it was bad. Not in the sense that it was a bad trip, but there was barely any strength to it. The second (and last) time I tripped was on DMT Enhanced Leaf. My friends called it Changa. (https://www.dmt-nexus.me/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=3539). That time I tripped and had a huge turn around in my ways of thought. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT if you can find it.
Okay so back on topic, I’m about to either take shrooms for my first time or a real tab or two of acid, followed by meditation when I’m at the peak of the trip… probably before as well.
What are your thoughts about this? What do you think I’ll feel? Has anyone tried meditating while on psychedelics? What suggestions can you give relating specifically to meditation and psychedelics?

everytime@apacheco10, everytime I get loaded, I meditate, and I get skyrocketted in other dimensions. I think some shrooms are real spiritual catalysts. I met some saints, some lotus flowers, experienced a Kundalini awakening, uncontrolled specific body movements, etc…
everytime something great is waiting “out there” ;-)
I had recently come across three hits of LSD and was trying to decide the best way to enjoy/use this experience on a personal growth/spiritual level. So I decided I would definitely do it alone, be somewhere close to nature, and meditate on the peak of the trip. So I rented a cabin at this campground by the mountains and told the lady to put me in one of the cabins in the back, so I was far away from people (didn’t want to freak myself or anyone else out lol) So I set up my cabin, took the 3 hits, smoked some herb and put on the headphones and set my Pandora to the Explosions in the Sky radio station and relaxed and started to focus on my breath. My intention was that once I started to peak, I would stop listening to the music, turn off the lights and focus on meditating….DID NOT HAPPEN haha. Once I started peaking, everything happened so fast, shit got crazy intense before I could even process what move I was going to make next. The music and I became one, I couldn’t stop listening to the music even if I wanted to, it was guiding my ENTIRE trip. I tried to turn off the lights, but it got way to intense and slightly scary so I had to turn them back on, I tried to focus on my breath but my thoughts were literally RACING. So many thoughts, images, words were flashing before me that focusing on my breath was far from my mind, the more I tried to control how the trip was going, in regards to attempting to meditate, the more it became almost impossible. I kept getting this internal message to “Let go,” it kept repeating in my mind over and over. I took that as stop trying to meditate and let me (the LSD) show you what I want to show you, so finally I did. I laid down, got COMPLETELY lost in the music, focused on what visuals I was seeing, what thoughts I was thinking and from there it was mind blowing. The things I was shown about myself, (areas I need to improve), about the universe, about the world, about perspective, about the spiritual journey was all VERY enlightening. IMO some of the same things that would have happened if I did actually meditate. It was incredible, I literally felt/expressed every emotion during that trip and I learned so much about so many things on so many different levels. I guess the basis of my story is that: yes I think meditating is great thing to do while tripping and has many rewards, if you are able to truly concentrate but also if you find your struggling to do that, just let go and enjoy the trip, I believe that whatever answers/insight/enlightenment you are trying to receive by meditating on psychedelics can still be found with or without meditation. Definitely let us know what you choose and how it works out for you, I would love to hear about it :) Blessings xo
I’ve meditated by myself most of the times I’ve use mushrooms, and I can say that I really learned a lot about the inner workings of the mind, what it is to be human, and the nature of time. I would highly recommend it, it can also bring out some pretty intense OBE’s. Happy tripping!
Had one of the most profound and life changing experiences of my life tripping on 5grams of mushrooms(mckenna’s holy dose) at about the one hour mark I started meditating and didn’t come out of it for 4 hours. I was also in a completely dark room with no light whatsoever.
What I saw was what I think was the inner workings of the universe. It was so beautiful that words would not do it justice, it is just something you must see for yourself.
So my answer is YESYESYES do it. Meditation and mushrooms go hand and hand perfectly, it’s like they were made to be done together.
I’ve always wanted to try this on any type of psychedelic. My only concern is that I would get easily distracted and end up doing some other randomness. But by all means go for it and let us know your results!!!
This just came to me.
What about meditation while high on DMT/ Salvia?
I’ve never done either, both are very quick trips, unless you ingest them orally. (I know ayahuasca can be made into a tea, not sure about salvia).
But has anyone had any experience with this or anything they can add to this?
@iluvdamusic, I think you’re beautiful and you don’t need to mediate to know that. That may sound like sarcasm out of the ass, but it’s not. You don’t need to drugs to have fun, buy a frisbee or something :) I love you.
I would recommend listening to Simon and Garfunkel. I think listening to music while meditating on a psychedelic will help you be able to start meditating. I know that when I’m on psychedelic my mind is hard to calm down. Let us know how it goes!
