Why Am I fasting on Magic Mushrooms

My 10 Day Magic Mushroom Fast

I have decided to embark on a journey. Today I will start a 10 day fast where I will eat nothing except magic mushrooms. I plan on eating various amounts from day to day depending on what I am feeling. Most days I only plan on eating them once but we shall see. Perhaps I will find myself eating them at various times throughout the day.

Along with eating magic mushrooms I will be drinking tea and lemon water.

Why I am fasting on Magic Mushrooms?

Radiolab recently did an episode on Bliss. The last part of this part of this episode they talked about an experiment where participants were given Psilocybin or magic mushrooms. One of the participants who was interviewed spoke about his life altering experience. For those who took part in the experiment talked about on Radiolab, their experience had a dramatic effect on their life where 9 out of 10 of the participants who were given magic mushrooms went on to become ministers. I found this fascinating.

We are told by our health experts that taking psychedelic plants are harmful to our health. I think this is a lie. I think psychedelic plants when used consciously for personal growth may just lead the next stage of human evolution. We shall see and I will use myself as a test subject.

I have worked with magic mushrooms over the last year. When I take them I spend most of the time in nature and in meditation. The experiences I have had are beyond words but I am going to try to put them into words.

I am convinced that working with these plants in a conscious and intentional way is one way that humans will be evolving. I hope that by eating only mushrooms over the next 10 days I will be given greater insight on how to use them for my own evolution.

It is 10:16am on Tuesday May 14th I am staying in a cabin deep in the woods with a river right outside my back door. I couldn’t have picked a more beautiful spot. I am about to take my first dose of about two grams. I don’t know how this journey will unfold, how often I will post, or what exactly I will be posting. But I hope that it is not only fun, educational, and enlightening for me, but for all who end up reading about my journey.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. “We are told by our health experts that taking psychedelic plants are harmful to our health. I think this is a lie. I think psychedelic plants when used consciously for personal growth may just lead the next stage of human evolution.”

    I’m not saying I don’t agree with you here, but by doing this fast you aren’t doing anything accept fuck with your brain (a thing that has been proven to happen with this kind of irresponsible use of psychedelics).

    This entire thing is also super pretentious just purely because you are trying to be all insightful and profound over what is essentially drug abuse.

    Please stop this, its pretentious fucks like you that attach this negative stigma to what is a great thing.

    • Hi There Ryan. Thanks for stopping by. I hear what you are saying but I believe you have misjudged me and what I am doing.

      I would say that getting a tattoo is fucking with your body. But I would say that fucking with your body with thought and intention can create some beautiful living works of art. By working with mushrooms in this way you might say I am, “Fucking with my brain.” However, I believe I know what I am doing and I am creating a new form of living art. I could be wrong but I have a very big hunch that I am not. If I am wrong I will be the first to say that you are right my friend. Here is to hoping I am right šŸ™‚

    • If you feel so strongly about it, then maybe you shouldn’t comment, with respect, your comments are your own problem here. Fasting is known to be amazing for the brain and body.. Raw food is known to be great for the mind and body, tests have proven mushrooms to reduce stress related illness and create well being, there is nothing in the world more natural than this mixture of amazing sources, I also speak from experiences of these sources.. And yet I sense unrest and anger in your words..Maybe this conversation is not for you..Maybe once you have experienced all of these things separably and mixed together, a voice of experience would speak differently..Look after your body the way you see fit, but advise cannot be given by any person, as your opinion will never stay the same over the course of your life, that which you say now, will differ from what you say in the future. How can an opinion hold any value based on this truths. I hope you understand, Dave

      • Much respect Dave. Equals equals equals all the way.

      • The news media is so funny. I love how they do it. They need to word things not to offend any of their advertisers and yet still appear to be a reliable source of information.

        If they just came out and said, “Hey, look at this treasure trove of information about how fasting can cure almost anything. It’s free and in a few days your body’s health will rebalance and start heading towards optimal health. Here are a whole bunch of testimonials from reputable people. Use your own judgement and educate yourself before jumping into it. But there is definitely something very important for the health of our nation here. Check it out.”

        If they simply replaced every spot on Kim Kardashian with a spot like that all hell would break loose. Cancer and disease as a whole would take a nose dive. People would wean themselves off of addictive toxic foods. The vitality of the entire nation would explode.

        But fasting is free. Fasting can’t afford to pay what pharmaceutical or health insurance companies can. And since this many countries run on money and not on peoples health and happiness. Health and happiness have to sit in the back of the bus like Rosa Parks.

      • yes its funny how people need to be told that fasting is beneficial. To me it is obvious, i dont need to know why, it is beyond logical that if you stop giving shitty food or just food to you body, he can focus on healing and other things that usually are hindered by excessive eating and bad habits. People are truly braindead, at least in western countries.

        The body aint stupid. The WoB knows that when you stop eating, it is for a reason and thus it focus on fixing the imbalances created by a bad lifestyle. Fasting is a way to communicate and stimulate the wob. Fascinating it is!

  2. I think this is a brilliant idea. I had a sub-threshold dose not too long ago, that taught me that there is much more to this than a full-blown trip. I am intrigued that similar tryptamine-based compounds have been marketed as anti-migraine agents, anti-depressants, and nootropics by the pharmaceutical industry. When I was younger, I was taught that mushrooms of the psilocybe variety were poisonous. I know this is a lie, and I have learned through experience and research that psilocybe nausea is a direct result of the active compounds, which is why most people who throw up do so during the approach to the peak +/-15 + 30 minutes after dosing. They say the Mazatapecs in Mexico take the mushrooms throughout the 2-3 month rainy season, often on consecutive days, so it is not like this process is without precedent.

    • Hey Apteryx
      Thanks for reading my work. I am glad you are intrigued. I am too. I am always learning. It sounds like you are spot on with your ideas about mushrooms. Since starting the fast I have found others who have used small doses of magic mushrooms to combat depression and other issues like it. I think mushrooms may be a great natural cure for issues like depression.

      I know medicine men and women use ayahuaska to cure depression and all kinds of ailments but I hadn’t heard about mushrooms working the same way until now.

      I didn’t throw up or even feel sick on mushrooms even once during my fast. One time I was eating them too fast without chewing them enough and a clump came up. But that was different. I think if someone can fast while on mushrooms it will help with sickness.

      Also I am a vegan and although I cannot say for sure I believe that a vegetarian / vegan diet is optimal for working with plant medicines.

      Ayahuaska is known to cause purging and vomiting for those who drink it. I have drank ayahuaska over 40 times and have only purged a little bit one time. Again I am convinced that part of the reason for this is because of my diet. But it’s also because of my state of mind. I trust these plant medicines like they are family and so no matter what is happening for me while under the influence I always know that I am safe and well cared for. This mindset I have found to help me more than anything else not only with plant medicine work but also in everyday life. It is simple trust in the universe but gaining that trust will allow you to travel anywhere with these plants.

      Thank you for your comment and for reading my blog.

      • Hi! Im very interested in these magic mushrooms. I’ve been needing a revival and this is a possibly life changing experience for the greater good of my life. I’m curious where to get these mushrooms. Can i get them online or do i scavenge for them? I live in South Florida (USA) and its starting to become rainy season and mushrooms seem to be all over the place now. Im not very familiar with what they look like or where to find them. Might you be able to give me some advise or direct me to a website that talks about the mushrooms, where to look, to distinguish the kinds of mushrooms, etc. Your other blog updates on this matter are rather unique and i am very much looking forward to trying these! Thank you for taking the time to read this!

      • Thanks for reading the blog.

        I recommend this website.


        It has a good message board and you can probably find a lot of answers there. Glad to hear you feel inspired to explore your relationship with mushrooms. I am sure it will bring you more than you can ask for or imagine.

      • It never fails to amaze me. The way in which my conciousness is the creator of all matter within our spectrum. Law of attraction is very interesting and I tested the theory several different ways. One of which was mushrooms. Fell into my lap out of the blue. I am on day 2 of a week long camping trip. Me, a tent, and two oz of cubes. In Wyoming, and lemme tell you, the galctic equator will blow your mind the first time you can watch it roll over the sky while lying on the ground. Love the energy you have, enlighten the world my friend.

      • You get it. There is so much to discover. Thank you for listening. Let us enlighten the world together by whole heartedly being who we are with no apologies.

        Have an amazing journey my friend. Let it never end šŸ™‚

      • Hey Man, you should fast, it is easier on your gut, you wont be as bloated, and more comfortable, it is easier to purge if need be, dont be afraid, also, in the native american church, we fast because we dont want to mix tyramine and triptamines,(of course natives didnt know this, they learned it). Yes, always fast. One of the reasons you can have a bad trip is eting unhealthy food before eating shrooms. Make an offering of food at the end of the ceremony, and some tobbacco, and eat healthy afterwards.

      • I agree. Fasting is where it’s at when it comes to working with these plants. I don’t plan on eating mushrooms unless I have been fasting. I have tried both since my 10 day fast. Fasting puts me in a state where there is no distractions and I am fully ready to receive instruction.

        Thank you for your comment

  3. I have personally done a mushroom fast for up to 8 days..studies done by the university of south Florida in July of 2013 determined that psilocybin mushrooms regrow brain cells..mushrooms are also known to clean and detoxify the kidneys the liver and the blood…with that being said let’s get to the point. this is a new area for a lot of people a lot of people consider this to be blasphemous I don’t give a flying flip.the truth is the truth..first off I want to state the fact that I am born again spirit baptized Christian..for those of you that don’t believe in Christ or Christianity disregard that fact it has nothing to do with the facts..for those of you do you’re probably going to hate me the more, but like I said I don’t care I’m not here to please you I’m here to state the truth i seek to Please my God and my Lord Jesus.and being that God is the Creator of all things he’s also the creator of mushrooms..so anyway for 10 days I fasted on nothing but water mushroomsit was a life changing experienceI was empowered of filled abundantly with God’s presence and His Spirit I was also delivered from a demonic spirits bad habits and addictionsI routinely fast I’ve never met a person who fast more or eat mushrooms more than I doif you want to look on my facebook you will see posted pictures of me with baskets and baskets filled with mushroomsall one has to do is do a search on my email address send me a request and look at all the pictures they want of me with mushrooms..I’m 29 years old I’m healthy in shape very fit outgoing positive attitude I’m faith filled and I have a visionary mindset that’s bigger than most people ever dream i’m going places I’m changing this world what are you doing lately…people like me are the people you want to be like when you grow upall the glory and praise goes to my god and fatherI am truly nothing without him..i’ve done 40 day faststo 21 day fast a couple 10 day fast multiple 3 day fast and hundreds of single day fastI’ve done juice fasting water fasting and Daniel Fastsnothing compares to a mushroom fast.truly it is the fastest way to get into the presence of God or into the spiritual realmthese are the facts you don’t like them sorry about your luck it is what it is..for those of you that are seeking for truth and wisdom I hope and pray that this testimony helps you for those of you that are Christians I hope you have an open mind and that you’re willing to do things that you normally wouldn’t dopray about it see God asked his spirit if mushrooms regrow brain cells they clean your blood detoxify your liver and your kidneys then they’re good for you if they’re good for you then why wouldn’t you want to do them?I don’t know about you but I really enjoy seeing angelsand having visions of God and His gloryfor everybody else I guess I would just appear as a madman but that’s fineI’d rather be crazy and right then be sane and wrong..and by the way please don’t come at me with that sorcery pharmakeia BSI know that there’s a group of people out there who seem to think that eating certain plants are practicing sorcery.. I suggest you do a little bit more research on sorcery for sorcery is the use of drugs to control and manipulate the forces spirits or other people and it usually involves another person..taking a plan to accelerate your fasting experience is not the same as sorceryhowever you idiots out there will say it is because you’d sit around and sorcery yourself at McDonalds all day long..I bet you don’t even know that chemicals are put your food in McDonalds that will keep you in bondage to their food..in fact cooking food is a form of sorcery..haven’t you ever heard of roots? aka voodoo/hoodooprobably not because you’re an educated you haven’t studied this matter what your argue with me none the less because you have an argument spirit however I’m not going to sit here and argue I’m just going to state the facts give my testimony and tell you all have a blessed day

    • It is comments like yours that give me hope and keep me working. Thank you Matthew.

      Your words are worth more than gold.

      • well your welcome..i was actually just getting on to delete my comment I feel like maybe I cast my pearls before swine..this is a lot of truth and the Christian community is not ready for it i don’t even really like to call myself a Christian I’m a follower of Jesus I have a personal relationship with him I love him.he alone set me free to me Christianity is more of a religious sect…but I’m very thankful that you’ve been blessed by this I pray that you do everything for the edification of love and unity in his name for hw alone is love.mushrooms are a neutral tool just like a knife you can use them for good you can use them for bad but they’re still just a tool none the lessI’ve been eating mushrooms for 16 years .for a long time I struggled with the idea that they were a drug and it was evil for me to eat them you gotta understand I don’t even smoke weed anymore I don’t do anything unhealthy my body is a temple of yeshua (jesus) and I use my temple to glorify Him I prayed about this issue and I feel that he has given mushrooms as a tool for the Wise..to be used to glorify Him
