Only reckless teenagers and hippies dared to trip on magic mushrooms in the past. Not anymore.
Based on two recent studies, magic mushrooms, or the psychedelic drug psilocybin, may have significant benefits for cancer patients experiencing anxiety and depression. One dose gave 80 percent of patients rest from anxiety for six months. Some were still anxiety-free four years later.
In accordance with researchers, magic mushrooms ease anxiety and depression due to the feeling of love and being “one” with everything. This causes a change in the brain, or neuroplasticity. “Studies using MRI imaging show psilocybin alters brain activity, permitting communication between regions of your brain that normally do not connect. This is believed to be area of the breakthroughs people report.”
In a December 1, 2016 Time Magazine article, Dinah Bazer tells of her experience having a single dose of psilocybin in a study at NYU Langone Medical Center.
Dinah said that initially she felt fear and like she was “tumbling through space.” After being calmed by the researchers guiding her, she surely could relax and see her fear as a dark mass inside her body. She took control and ordered the black mass out, and it disappeared.
She then “… started initially to feel love. Magic mushroom chocolates I felt like I was being bathed in love and its as overwhelming, amazing, wonderful… The feeling of immense love lingered for weeks, and four years later I still feel it at times. My fear and anxiety were completely removed, and they haven’t come back… The ability changed how I wanted to live my life… I used to assume what it could be like if the cancer recurred, but I don’t contemplate it exactly the same way anymore. When I don’t feel great and thoughts of a recurrence creep into my mind, I lack fear and simply think,’Let’s just see what happens.’ ”
What Goes Up Must Come Down
Though the benefits of magic mushrooms seem promising, based on Stephen Ross, who led the NYU study, “When someone goes out and does this themselves, they could have enormous anxiety and paranoia, and can feel much worse. Though I’m sympathetic, I’d highly recommend people not do that.”
Even in controlled situations, we’re still very leery that the benefits of magic mushrooms outweigh the dangers. This reminds us of how some people claim bong hits of marijuana have few or no side effects. As much as we didn’t want to trust it in our late teens, we now believe all mind-altering drugs negatively affect emotions and mental health, block spiritual growth, and can attract negative entities and spiritual troublemakers.
Additionally, it’s important to think about the physical complications of consuming mind-altering drugs (and excess alcohol), which could include vitamin/mineral deficiencies, liver problems, cognitive problems, and more.
Alternative To Magic Mushrooms For Depression and Anxiety
In place of masking depression and anxiety with medication and suffering the medial side effects, or using magic mushrooms and risking the possible side effects, think about identifying and coping with the foundation of the situation?
We’ve noticed that many problems may have a real, emotional, mental, and spiritual component. Sometimes, once you address the spiritual part, others are easier to cope with as well as disappear.
After using our free Spiritual Detox script for years, daily for periods of time (which, like peeling an onion, also removes a level of negative patterns each time), and noticing profound changes in how exactly we feel and our perception and awareness, we are convinced of the importance of clearing ones self of spiritual debris. If we feel anxiety or depression, we take 10 minutes and browse the script out loud. In so doing we call in powerful spiritual helpers from the other side that clear away the unseen garbage and we instantly feel better. It’s so simple, some people have trouble believing it until they check it out, but it works.
You are mistaken in the event that you think that only the most troubled people, or drug addicts or alcoholics have spiritual garbage on board. The same as everyone gets physically dirty from lifestyle, everyone sees negative energy everywhere, sometimes in the form of discarnate and dark entities. The more empathetic and sensitive you’re to it, the more you’d take advantage of a typical clearing.
Diet changes and frequent exercise have already been shown to be far better than medications for depression. Address your spiritual, emotional, and mental sides by adding some type of regular spiritual clearing (such as our Spiritual Detox script) along with regular meditation, and you’ve a successful, side effect-free combination.
For only more profound improvement, we recommend also adding past life regression to obtain the real cause of any problem. Unfortunately, lots of people won’t bother because they’ve fallen for the myths and fallacies about it without doing their own research. But for people who are willing to remain objective and look deeper, this spiritual tool and others mentioned above can give awareness and relief.
