Looking ahead or aiming toward the 21st century you have to thought
about in history how many Veterans from the Vietnam war came back
and had to deal with life. It was hard for that time.
Now think about all the time spent in Iraq and Pakistan and others in
war times and not. It is far longer and far too many that any should
of been put into action.
With such a big problem sometimes a big answer is needed.
~~~~Inside Mind-Tripping, Soul-Changing, Ground-Shifting,
21st Century Psychedelic Therapy.
Ric Godfrey had the shakes. At night, his body temperature would drop
and he’d start to tremble. During the day, he was jumpy.
He was always looking around, always on edge. His vibe scared the
people around him. He couldn’t hang on to a job.
He started drinking and drugging, anything to numb out.
Years passed before a Department of Veterans Affairs counselor told
him he had severe posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. The former Marine
had spent the early 1990s interrogating prisoners in Kuwait. Years later, he was still
playing out the Persian Gulf War.
Counseling helped a little, but the symptoms continued. He went to rehab for his
substance abuse, then tried Alcoholics Anonymous. “That went on for 10 years,”
he said. “I don’t know how many times I hit rock bottom.”
Then one of his Seattle neighbors—a woman who also suffered from PTSD told him
about a group of veterans who were going down to Peru to try a psychedelic drug called
ayahuasca, a jungle vine that is brewed into a tea. Indigenous Peruvians called it
“sacred medicine.” A wealthy veteran had started a healing center in South America
and would pay all his expenses.
The next thing Ric knew, he was crawling into a tent on a platform out in the middle
of the Amazon jungle. The sun went down. The shaman gave him the tea, a blessing,
and a pail in which to vomit.
“Your body will not keep it in you,” Ric recalled. “At first, it’s the worst thing you’ve ever
done in your life. Then all of a sudden you blink your eyes and you are not there anymore.
You get out of your body and look back and see what is wrong with you.
I saw the shell of the person I didn’t want to be and stepped out of it. It was the most
amazing thing. I’ve taken lots of drugs before, but I never remembered.
I think this is the key. You actually gain knowledge from this.
I don’t even consider it a drug. It’s an eye-opener.
It makes you think about stuff. Your deepest, darkest secrets, stuff you have been holding
on to since you were eight years old—it washes out of you, and you feel like a totally
different person. People look at you differently. Your whole world changes before your eyes.”
Three years later, Ric Godfrey says he hasn’t had a single symptom of the shakes or night
terror since he came back from the jungle. He’s relaxed and holding down a great job.
“I’ve always been afraid that someone was out to get me, but I don’t have that
fear anymore,” he says. “I still like to sit with my back to the wall.
I still have certain military idiosyncrasies, but I’m not afraid anymore.”
Psychedelic drugs are back. Not that they ever really went away. You could always find
them on the street, in the psychedelic underground, and along the more enlightened edges
of the drug culture. What’s new is that these powerful mind-altering substances are coming
out of the drug counterculture and back into the mainstream laboratories of some of the
world’s leading universities and medical centers. Research projects and pilot studies at
Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Purdue University, and the University of California, Los Angeles,
are probing their mind-altering mysteries and healing powers.
Psychedelic drugs like psilocybin and Ecstasy are still illegal for street use and cannot
be legally prescribed by doctors, but university administrators, government regulatory
agencies, and private donors are once again giving the stamp of approval
and the money needed for research into beneficial uses for this “sacred medicine."
Psychedelic Therapy would help in bad cases where current therapy fails.
And keep in mind "Therapy" not by yourself.
I had a college friend that went out with a lady and she was the Wicca
type, as it went she gave him some DMT and they where going to have
sex together under DMT to "Bond together."
Well he kind of had a psychosis for a few days and he ended up driving
his car down the streets downtown Tulsa bouncing off cars looking at the
tall buildings as he was going because he was being chased by a
"Lizard thing." (Machine Elf) that was stocking him. He was heading for the college
to take his classes regardless! The lady he was with asked us if we seen him
and she told us what happened, when he ended up coming in the college
cafeteria. He started to yell at a wall at the whatever it was
that was trying to get him. So I ended up getting a red cherry slushy and
I challenged the monster throwing the slushy at the wall like I killed the monster.
Him seeing the red on the wall was it's blood and it snapped him out of it
we talked him into that I killed it's ass!
After that we took him home being that he was awake for days.
He told us to get his car and bring it back to his home.
But when we got to where it was we couldn't find it.
We found it by hearing the exhaust of the V8.
His car was deep in the bushes still running. We figured he went into the
bushes and ran to the college to get away from the green lizard!
Funny as hell we thought!
In High School in the art class there was a kid in class that took a dot of
acid. He was freaked out not knowing what hour it was because
he said the clock was running backward so he didn't know the time.
And later in class he said every time he walked by the teachers desk
there was a ruffle in the trash can so he didn't look until he finally had
to look. He screamed and fainted. He told me he saw two green hands
pull itself out of the can. It was a gremlin like thing he said. A machine elf!
The point is you have to be stable before you take any thing in that range of drug!
And you need a therapist when you take any drug in that nature.
Very much like they have way back with the Medicine man and out
~~~~Healing with Psychedelics
Psychedelic medicines are some of the most powerful tools in the world for
personal healing and psychological growth. This guide is intended as a starting
point for using psychedelics for personal healing, recovery, and development,
on your own or with a mental health professional.
This site is science-focused: at the bottom of each page, we link to articles and
research studies related to the particular substance, treatment goal,
and treatment method.
More than healing it also points to more than anyone could know.
Opening the door to your happiness, enlightening you your worries are trivial!
Also are the strange relating things many have said they have seen when on DMT!
People who have used DMT have all reported being in different situations
however the creepiest aspect of these reports is that most people report seeing
the same entities and even environments as other people who have taken DMT.
A wonderful doctor, Doctor Rick Strassman from Los Angeles (home of famous
druggies such as Jim Morrison), has written many documents as well as a few books
and has done many research studies by studying the behavior and reports made by
his patients (all of whom I envy).
His patients have reported seeing entities such as mechanical dwarves, reptilian
green creatures, and giant bug-like monsters. Keep in mind, each of those entities
have been reported multiple times by multiple people. The environments have
been described differently from person to person however few have reports
have been similar. Environments such as giant laboratories, vast fields,
foreign planets, ect... have all been reported. The experiences have all been quite
similar as well in the aspect that the majority of encounters have been positive encounters
where the entities tell the DMT user to reach positive goals in their life.
Something like that would change my life to be quite honest.
And thee most commonly reported experience from every user is that they
were not put into a state of mind, but that they were put into another dimension.
~~~~Interviews with People Who Just Smoked DMT
Jodie: I felt what God was like. It was something that was smaller
than anything. It’s not made of anything—it is everything around the thing
that it is and everything inside of it at the same time and it kind of moves about in
a way that’s not on the grid. It was like time traveling, but it wasn’t time before
or after, it was just adjacent to us.
Early on I saw that Earth was having a vibration. That it was like a constant breath,
but we can’t see it. You can’t see it from photos. The edge of everything. It got so hot.
It was like a wave that was like electricity. It was black and then red and then white,
and it was rounded and arched as if it were in orbit somewhere.
Your bodies were, like, singing—everything you were doing was like a song.
You were making a symphony. The scratching and the movements were all in a rhythm,
and I felt very happy. I was also seeing all this fun, wacky clown stuff.
All these crazy geometric patterns. It seemed like they were laughing at me.
Then there were these little elf things. I couldn’t see them but they were letting me
know that they were there. I felt very happy, like,
“Yeah, this is where I’m supposed to be.”
Note the part Elf things!
~~~~Machine Elves 101, or Why Terence McKenna Matters
The Elves: "There are forces friendly to our struggle to birth ourselves
as an intelligent species." The elf component is the spice in the
Terence McKenna flavor.
It is the supernatural entities encountered during his tryptamine experiences that
compose the language of McKenna's Archaic pulpit. "In the phenomenon of
Stropharia cubensis, we are confronted with an intelligent and seemingly alien life-form."
McKenna recounts time and time again the analogous experiences with these entities,
what he calls "self-transforming machine elves" which one can make contact with in the
psychedelic universe. "Right here and now, one quanta away, there is raging a universe
of active intelligence that is transhuman, hyperdimensional, and extremely alien."
What this suggests is that the psilocybin experience opens the pathways to a sort of
parallel dimension, where one can speak and interact with otherworldly beings.
The intrigue of this lies in its repeatability of these alien forms and the nature of
their interactions: "This spectacle of more than Oriental splendor is the characteristic,
even unvarying, manner in which this experience presents itself."
In fact, these elfin beings are a construct of a greater picture.
Terence makes it clear the "speaking entity" of the tryptamine realm is an interior
manifestation of the Logos, the ultimate source of all knowledge.
The machine elves act as a sort of ambassadorship for the Logos, the collective
unconscious, Oversoul, or Gaian Mind. It is from this place that Terence received the
knowledge of his time wave theory: "Shamans and mystics and psychedelic travelers
may be getting a very noisy, low-grade signal about a future event that is somehow
built into the structure of space and time."
Again, the shamanic model makes itself evident. In indigenous societies, the shaman
receives all of his/her knowledge from the same type of beings through entheogenic plants;
it is integral to the success of their curing methods. "The shaman is able to act as an
intermediary between the society and the supernatural, or to put it in Jungian terms,
he is an intermediary to the collective unconscious."
~~~~Machine elfMcKenna's first published mention of the machine elves in his and his brother Dennis'
book The Invisible Landscape (published 1975):
We especially refer to the apparently autonomous and intelligent, chaotically
mercurial and mischievous machine elves encountered in the trance state,
strange teachers whose marvelous singing makes intricate toys out of the air
and out of their own continually transforming body geometries.
Later, McKenna describes the experience in more detail. The following is a
partial transcription of a workshop titled "Time and Mind" - The Tykes.
At about minute one or two of a DMT trip, according to McKenna, one may
burst through a chrysanthemum-like mandala, and find:
There's a whole bunch of entities waiting on the other side, saying
"How wonderful that you're here! You come so rarely!
We're so delighted to see you!"
They're like jewelled self-dribbling basketballs and there are many of them and they
come pounding toward you and they will stop in front of you and vibrate,
but then they do a very disconcerting thing, which is they jump into your body and then
they jump back out again and the whole thing is going on in a high-speed mode where
you're being presented with thousands of details per second and you can't get a hold on
[them ...] and these things are saying "Don't give in to astonishment", which is exactly
what you want to do. You want to go nuts with how crazy this is, and they say
"Don't do that. Pay attention to what we're doing".
What they're doing is making objects with their voices, singing structures into existence.
They offer things to you, saying "Look at this! Look at this!" and as your attention
goes towards these objects you realise that what you're being shown is impossible.
It's not simply intricate, beautiful and hard to manufacture, it's impossible to
make these things. The nearest analogy would be the Fabergé eggs, but these things
are like the toys that are scattered around the nursery inside a U.F.O.,
celestial toys, and the toys themselves appear to be somehow alive and can
sing other objects into existence, so what's happening is this proliferation of elf gifts,
which are moving around singing, and they are saying
"Do what we are doing" and they are very insistent, and they say
"Do it! Do it! Do it!" and you feel like a bubble inside your body beginning to
move up toward your mouth, and when it comes out it isn't sound, it's vision.
You discover that you can pump "stuff" out of your mouth by singing, and
they're urging you to do this. They say "That's it! That's it! Keep doing it!".
We're now at minute 4.5 [of the trip] and you speak in a kind of glossolalia.
There is a spontaneous outpouring of syntax unaccompanied by what is
normally called "meaning". After a minute or so of this the whole thing begins
to collapse in on itself and they begin to physically move away from you.
Usually their final shot is that they wave goodbye and say "Deja vu! Deja vu!".

Really anyway you see it in the right settings Psychedelic Therapy helps.
