Magic mushrooms have been at the center of many stories where people claim to see and communicate with otherworldly beings, spirits, and even God.
Some people think these claims are outrageous. The question becomes – is any of this possible – and if so, how?
Many people who use hallucinogenic mushrooms have claimed to encounter fairies, aliens, gods, elves and more while on a mushroom trip. Avid users will tell you that within the mushroom plant lives a spirit that has a very powerful psychedelic substance psilocybin and once you consume it, the spirit will communicate with them. Some people feel that this wise, mushroom spirit has spoken to them, revealing valuable information.
It is believed that this spirit is ancient, extraterrestrial and may, in fact, be the consciousness of God or the Earth.
Terence McKenna, an ethnobotanist, spent his life focusing on the idea that psilocybin mushrooms are not only a chemical message from a different star system, but that they also are a gateway for telepathic communication with other higher realms.
According to McKenna’s research, small insulated and secure mushroom spores can journey through space by jumping on board of comets, then cultivating planets, creating synergetic relationships with advanced species with the goal of extending their consciousness throughout the universe.
This isn’t the first time we have heard something of this nature. Nobel laureate Francis Crick was the first to state a similar notion that life travels throughout the universe through the implantation of warm, egg-like ocean planets, via chemical amino acid chains inside of sperm-like comets. This belief is called “directed panspermia.”
Crick was one of the people who found the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule, which was, in fact, a huge addition to biology and greatly progressed the science of genetics.
The experiences reported by people encountering extraterrestrial life forms while using DMT (dimethyltryptamine a psychedelic close in composition to psilocybin) and magic mushroom are very similar. During laboratory testing, those using DMT often say they are being experimented on by a very intelligent alien, insectoid scientist. These amazing claims of alien abduction by people on DMT are close to (yet somewhat different from) the reports of extraterrestrial experiences while on ayahuasca trips.
Ayahuasca is a herb that has been used in the Amazon jungles for thousands of years for shamanic healing. It has DMT and a chemical known as an “MAO-inhibitor” or better yet, harmaline, that causes the DMT to be activated in your mouth. It can shift the type of experience by lengthening its time and reducing how fast the experience occurs. During a DMT journey with harmaline, it tends to be a lot less scary, and the spirits encountered are not so alien – rather they are from earth, appearing as helpful teachers and healers.
Basically, magic mushroom, DMT and ayahuasca experiences are very similar in nature.
There are reports that hallucinogenic mushrooms lead to connections with alien technologically advanced biomechanical entities from various star systems. On the other hand, some people report seeing animals, nature spirits, and ancestors. Celtic and Irish stories often indicate that some people have made contact with “elves” and “fairies” while taking hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Researchers have referred to alien and fairy abduction myths. When you think about the idea that entities such as demons exist, it makes you wonder the possibilities of all these other extraterrestrial claims. If many people believe in the existence of demons who is to say that beings such as aliens, elves and faeries don’t exist as well.
There seems to be otherworldly beings that are creating unexplained experiences in our world. These encounters – what we may consider to be paranormal – are steadily gaining the interest of many people. Some information implies that these beings have existed and tampered with humanity since the beginning of time. Due to the limited scope of our psyche, we struggle to understand and receive any actual proof of what some are claiming to experience.
It is not far fetched to theorize that the beings and communications experienced with magic mushroom spirits are in some way playing tricks on us and messing with our minds. Especially when you consider other reports of UFO sightings, alien abductions, and crop formations.
In a novel written by Dennis McKenna titled, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss, he writes about his amazingly interesting psychedelic adventures and unexplainable journeys with his late brother, Terence McKenna.
He shares a number of mind boggling explorations in this autobiography. Dennis McKenna also explores various theories about the intelligent life form that exists within magic mushrooms. It will really make you think – although you will probably be uncertain of what to make of the experiences he shares.
Roland Griffiths, a Johns Hopkins University neuroscience researcher, has spent several years delving into the clinical effects of psilocybin, the hallucinogenic chemical in magic mushroom. Alongside the abundance of studies for psilocybin’s therapeutic capabilities, he has successfully been able to confirm that religious phenomena can at times occur with psilocybin – just like what mystics have been saying for centuries.
Now Griffiths is performing a private, online survey to distinguish challenging occurrences that people using magic mushrooms tend to have such as “bad trips,” be they considered good or a negative experience. According to Griffiths, this survey will be key to shedding light on the therapeutic uses for psilocybin that researchers are now investigating.
