.:Overture:. Microdosing As a Reality Hack
Microdosing has been a huge topic of conversation over the past few decades. Not only in my work and personal life, but also in the medical, therapeutic, and scientific communities. From healing to nootropic use, it's becoming common to work with entheogens in barely noticeable doses. This is breaking new grounds and challenging outdated paradigms like religious, medical, pharmaceutical, and social beliefs. A new era is upon the human species. It's not only our right, but also our obligation to ourselves and the planet to undo old programs in both the conscious and subconscious areas of the mind. The plant devices that have assisted us throughout history have always been available to small groups of people that had a shamanic influence. With so many "parasites" and "sorcerers" consuming our species and controlling our minds for so long, the tools offered from these plants have only been accessible to few and now in decreasing numbers as governments fulfill the old agenda of inhibiting the expansion of consciousness. The war on consciousness is coming to its apex as I write this. Where will you be when it all collapses? Will you be part of the Evolution? Or be recycled? The Collective does not require You to Evolve, it'll do so even if you decide to continue keeling over. If you decide to Evolve with us (the 144,000 lol), you will experience a story that has never been seen on this planet. This will change you forever. The compound that has been the bridge to my evolution and expansion happens is the psilocybin mushroom. This friend of mine and I have been in cahoots for ten years with this new project. I've been asked to share the wisdom of this technique to assist with the psychological reprogramming, integration, and expansion outside of the currently outdated model.

.:Psilocybin and Microdosing:.
In the past 20 years, psychedelic clinical trials and research have exploded as it's become impossible to deny their benefits from the public. In 2000, John Hopkins was the first institution to get government approval for the research of psychedelics. In 2018, the FDA changed psilocybin’s status to “breakthrough therapy” enabling continued research. In the years following, Colorado, Washington, and Michigan, amongst other states, have already decriminalized possession of "magic" mushrooms. Still federally considered a Schedule I Substance, the narrative is rapidly changing as evidence builds up. Trials are showing how deeply we benefit from working with these entheogens, especially with proper guidance in clinical settings. The data continues to show minimal risks of overdose and addiction to the psilocybin. Results display how they offer a wide range of therapeutic uses for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and drug addiction while alleviating symptoms of physical pain.
Most of the research involves traditional or heroic doses (5 grams or more) under the supervision of a therapist in clinical settings and isn't accessible to the average person. Seeking this kind of transformative experience isn't something most would try on their own. If they do, it could turn into a "bad trip", preventing them from pursuing it in the future. There still is very little published research confirming the benefits of daily, self-administered microdoses of psilocybin.
.:What Exactly IS Microdosing?:.
A microdose is a sub-hallucinogenic dose of any psychedelic/psycho-active compound (ketamine, mushrooms, LSD, DMT...) that is low enough to avoid perception-altering affects, or a "trip". Dosage will vary from person to person and can range anywhere from 0.1 to 0.5 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms or 1/10th of a "normal" dose (based on personal usage).
Although groups like The Beckley Foundation, John Hopkins, and MAPS have been granted the green light in the past decade to begin studying the effects of small doses with psychedelics, psilocybin has been present alongside us since our very beginnings and grows everywhere except in arctic regions. The research and study of these compounds is new, but not our relationship with them.
When starting out on a personal psilocybin microdosing journey, it is important to first identify a quality source that you can trust. It is suggested to find a colleague, or a friend who is an experienced psychonaut and can refer you to a tried and tested source or shaman to administer the medicine.
Once you understand relevant drug interactions and have decided to venture on this journey, find a quality source and use a proper scale to measure out the dose and start on the low end (0.1 to 0.15 grams). Some prefer to grind up the mushroom and place it in capsules. On your first dose, choose a day that you have off so you can observe the experience without the risk of “tripping” at work or social settings.
The Lunar Protocol ritual is the following:
I take time off from microdosing for the following month as a means to allow my brain, along with the conscious and subconscious mind, to calibrate to the new streams of data/neural pathways that are being created. After that month-long break, I return to the 3/2 days Lunar Protocol. The goal is to also prevent a tolerance build-up and avoid the need to increase dosage.
If you’re approach with the .:Overture:. is for nootropic purposes, I suggest to lower your intake of any other nootropics and stimulants during the period of time working with it. I’ve found that I use the others much less than before the microdose.
During the re-programming phase
with the Lunar Protocol cycle, I monitor very closely what I bring into my mind, body, and Being; foods, music, environments, substances, people, and even sex. I maintain a daily journal where I document not only differences I'm seeing and feeling, but also my affirmations/reprogramming codes. These begin to allow awareness of old programs that were operating. Think of it like this; I create the affirmation that I am losing weight very rapidly. This begins to manifest except there's this other thing occurring: I'm having a reaction to certain foods that I eat or the amount of times in the day that I eat for no reason other than habit and maybe as a coping mechanism. Now I can begin to see that the root cause to me not losing weight rapidly isn't because I'm not affirming properly or better, it's because of things in the subconscious that need to be deprogrammed. Awareness is power. Instead of be careful, I like to think of it as be ready for what you wish for.
With microdosing, less is always more. You are not here to "trip", connect with the universe, or even feel anything. You are here to intentionally, logically, and intellectually interact with a part of your mind that has never been interfaced with before: the subconscious/unconscious mind.
