Your first tripfeeling allways coming back in next trips?

2 years, 5 months ago

A few weeks ago I was at Eastek festival in Germany and as we were on Acid I had an interesting talk with a few of my friends.

We were agreeing that once you took your first trip (shrooms or acid);the way you looked at the world and at yourself will continue to come back in the next trips you will have.

For example: in my first shroomtrip I really saw myself as a Hobbit, exploring a new world with my friends, going into this new magical landscape. I was kind of shy, little bit scared, but found all kind of new magical things/ideas and it felt like we were really out to explore the world and having a mission to complete that day.

As we were talking about this I found myself that in fact I still have this vision every trip. The little hobbit in me grew a bit, got used to some magical stuff but still I’m allways a bit shy, adventurous and allways with a feeling I have a mission to complete, no matter what the setting is.

Other friends had other feelings: one called himself a little boy, another felt like an animal I think, but just as in a lot of trips; I don’t remember much more details of this talk.

So my question; Do you guys have this too? Or was this just triptalk and once someone says something like this youre mind makes this up?

I can’t say that has happened to me.
The several times I tripped, each experience was different, and I didn’t exist, the energy Alexa existed, but not my physical body. Never experienced the animal, hobbit, whathaveyou role, but that does sound quite interesting.

Every time I trip I ALWAYS return to the same trip, like I had just hit pause on a DVD player or something. It’s you returning to your child-like nature, your unconditioned self. So yes, I know exactly what you are talking about. Even during my first trip I realized that I had been to that place before, that mystical wonderland. It’s a weird feeling, the familiarity. I feel more sober on mushrooms/LSD than I do when I’m actually sober… I feel like it’s far more real than every day life.

@adamsmith, You’ve nailed exactly how I feel about psychedelics as well. They lack the ‘fuzzy-thinking’ feeling that alcohol and weed both bring on- it just feels like you’re seeing the world as it truly is. The feeling of lucidity is really what draws me to psychedelics.

every trip experience is a little different from the last for me. but i’ve found that the prevailing mentality of my trip affects the way i feel every sober day until i trip again and reset to some other mentality. like if i have a bad time, i’ll be a little more irritable and prone to depression for the next month or whatever until i trip again and hopefully have a good one, then the good feeling will keep me optimistic til the time after that and so on. anyone else have this experience?

@adamsmith reading your response gave me chills. Yes, i know exactly what place you are talking about. What an amazing feeling, that first trip, to feel as if you have returned to the place you’ve been searching for all along. Have you ever experienced the feeling alongside someone else? As in, realizing you had been there with them before? It was the most magical experience! And nothing was fuzzy and everything was clear. As jack kerouac has said “it was completely serious, completely hallucinated, completely happy.” That describes tripping pretty well, for me at least.
