Diving with whales

Ever wonder what it would be like to dive with whales? Here’s a cheap version for those of you that are more than a few paychecks away from getting that submersible you’ve wanted all your life.

What you need

  • LSD
  • Car (preferably a small one)
  • Whale song
  • Friend(s) with a vivid imagination

How to do it

You might already have figured it out, but here goes.

  1. Park your car in the forest at night.
  2. Take the LSD and wait for it to hit the peak.
  3. Get into the car and turn on the parking lights, so that there is just a hint of light outside the car.
  4. Talk and mess around so that the car windows fog up.
  5. With the parking lights on and the windows all foggy, put on the whale song and crank that volume way up.
  6. Peer out the windows and imagine you’re on a whale expedition.

Nine tips for mushroom rituals

∙ Set a clear intention. Be clear about your intentions and consecrate the ritual, preferably to Mother Earth.
∙ Be clean. Wash before your contact with higher realities.
∙ Feel nice. Dress in clothes that you like, that you feel pretty, handsome and confident in.

∙ Be a little tired. The mind has a way of trying to hold on to and continue categorizing things. By being a little tired the mind has less chance to do so and it will be easier to reach other realities.
∙ Do not eat before. The stomach takes up the mushroom. If you have eaten heavily before the ritual, the stomach will be working to take care of the food. Do not eat four hours before. A little water and fruit is ok.
∙ Relax. Follow the flow. Do not resist. Meditation is recommended, especially in initial stage of the journey.

∙ Dance and sing. These are powerful tools for processing, reinforcing and spreading emotions. The music that you create yourself in that moment is the strongest. You can also use mantras, if you feel comfortable with them.
∙ Don’t mix. Treat the mushroom with respect. Mixing the mushroom with dirty substances such as alcohol, nicotine or amphetamine is not respectful.
∙ The place. Some locations, such as power spots, are particularly suited for rituals. Choose the location carefully.
