If I'm gonna have a bad trip, I'd rather have an indian spirit guide with maracas than not have an indian spirit guide with maracas.

Kinda the psychedelic equivalent of wearing a seat belt.

u/SlonkGangweed Oct 30 '18

I mean, it is the appropriate setting, with sober people that know whats going on and how to handle bad trips. This is kinda how everyone should be introduced to them.

I like to think he got caught up in a thought about what to have for lunch, remembers his one job there and tries to subtly slink back into the situation

u/boxdogdog Oct 27 '18

He seems to increase his shaking vigour when she starts screaming and then quickly keeps referring back to those lunch thoughts...

What the fuck are you talking about? My point was that white people tend to be the psychedelic tourists that are patrons of these indigenous "shamans". It's like, a well known industry.

The guy in the red shirt is a medical doctor, Octavio Rettig. He's very well-known in the 5-MeO-DMT circles. She's in good hands.

In fact, the woman in this very video made an amazing post on reddit about her experience: https://www.reddit.com/r/Psychonaut/comments/3cozaz/my_5meodmt_experience_with_video/

u/Pipezilla Oct 27 '18

Clicked on the Drs link and there was another video and he was playing the maracas. Does that make your trip better?

u/blacklite911 Oct 29 '18

I read her post and it seems like the bad part of her trip effected her more. I don’t know if it’s worth it unless you’re dealing with some really bad shit.

6

u/SlonkGangweed Oct 30 '18

That's one of the therapeutic applications. Sometimes some traumatic shit happens to people they cant face head on and they cant get past. Something like this forces you to deal with that and worse and lets you walk out the other side free of the burden with a new perspective on it and you and the priorities of life.

Obviously that is not something for everyone, but it does for for some.

u/[deleted] Nov 06 '18

TL;DR: it gets worse before it gets better

u/SlonkGangweed Nov 06 '18

Yeah, and if you can withstand the existential terror of reality collapsing in and being separated from your body and tossed into another state of being for a while, then afterwards your life problems will seem like insignificant squabbles.

u/boxdogdog Oct 27 '18

She didn't mention her thoughts on the Maracas dude at all.

u/NWDiverdown Oct 27 '18

5-MeO is some serious shit. I don’t think I’d ever do it again. I can handle regular deems just fine. Ayahuasca, too. But the toad is too much for me.

7

u/linsage Oct 27 '18

What is the difference between the toad kind and the other kind?

8

u/NWDiverdown Oct 28 '18

In my experience, the toad is way stronger. If the other kind is a roller coaster, the toad is a rocket ship to mars.

u/SeeYouSpaceCowboy--- Nov 12 '18

To be fair, I've had regular DMT also be a rocket ship to mars haha

u/Urlilpetal Nov 13 '18 edited Nov 14 '18

honestly, I didn't even realize there was a level past DMT, I did it ONE time and I will never do it again. it wasn't even particularly bad, I was just really uncomfortable with how out of control I felt and how intense it was, and I did not expect it to literally hit me the moment I inhaled it. so much more intense than any kind of other trip I've ever had. I have actually only tripped once since then, I have unfortunately seen so many people in my area and former groups of friends lose their mind to hallucinogens that I got turned off from them even though I've personally never really had too terrible of a trip.

Dude looks enlightened. No really, what I am seeing here just looks like an ultra terrifying version of salvia. I have to say, I am not sold. Question though, I have heard a lot of people discuss DMT as really cool, euphoric, etc. Is 5MeO just a completely different drug experience or what?

u/Valmar33 Oct 27 '18

"Shaman", which they probably have no qualifications to call themselves such.

Not a certificate, mind you, but rather having the defining traits which makes a shaman... well, a shaman.

u/Afc1014 Oct 27 '18

So you're saying having a poncho and a rattle doesn't make you a shaman??

u/havebeenfloated Oct 27 '18

It doesn’t make you nor a shaman.

u/Valmar33 Oct 27 '18

I guessed they just called themselves one, because it rakes in the dough from naively, ignorant, stupid peoples... :/

Bro you just flipped my whole world upside down

u/Valmar33 Oct 27 '18

lol

Such people would be better served going to an actual shaman.

Pity the cost of going to Amazon can be expensive for some, and it's not always easy to find a good shaman. Some shamans have become corrupted by Capitalism, and get lost in the money-maze.

Similar to some Indian gurus, who... lose their enlightenment, I guess.

Strange, but it happens... thanks to monetary greed that they've probably never had to deal with before. It becomes far too much for some people to handle, and they just lose all perspective of what they were doing before.

u/pigpigglestein Oct 27 '18

The whole shaman thing is bullshit from the outset. About as much purpose as a preacher/church to connect you to God. A friend who's had the experience a few times before? Fine there's your shaman. People think traveling to the jungle and paying someone to give you the drug makes a difference... it doesn't unless you have no idea what you're doing or no access to the drug otherwise. We live in an age when researching for yourself is easy if you're willing to do the research. The drug and your brain are all that's really required. Hamilton Morris, who's sought out every shaman known to man, finally came to the same conclusion himself. It's a scam.

u/Valmar33 Oct 27 '18 edited Oct 27 '18

No, it's not. This speaks of your ignorance about what shamanism is, as a set of practices.

I know that you don't understand, because I've had shamanic experiences myself, if minor, and have done some research of shamanism, when trying to understand my experiences, and learning that wasn't crazy or delusional, as I believed for long enough.

About as much purpose as a preacher/church to connect you to God.

A shaman does so much more than this. It is far deeper, far more profound, than a bunch of empty, feel-good platitudes. For the shaman, religion isn't important in their practices. They don't read from books ~ they practice their arts, passed on from other shamans, over many thousands of years. They become well-defined and well-understood.

Traditionally, a shaman is responsible for their tribe or community in various ways ~ for advice and wisdom, herbal medicines, healing, journeying into the spirit world to bring back messages for their tribe, etc. In a tribal society, the role of shaman is very well understood, because their abilities are known to be genuine, after thousands of years of shamanic practice, which takes on a very well-defined shape.

Westerns cannot understand such things, having never had such a society. And so, shamanism is seen as superstition, from those who don't understand remotely what it is.

A friend who's had the experience a few times before? Fine there's your shaman.

No. Shamanism has nothing to do with taking psychedelics. The "shamanic sickness", as it is called, is not linked to psychedelics or drugs of any other kind. It is an event that happens out of the blue. What we call "schizophrenia", the tribes recognize as the birth of a shaman. Another shaman takes this kind of person under their wing, to help to grow out of, and through, it. Then, they receive many years of training to become a fully-fledged shaman.

There are no gods here ~ but there are well-known spirits that, over thousands of years, shamans come to recognize quite clearly. Thus, it can be known who is a shaman, and who isn't.

People think traveling to the jungle and paying someone to give you the drug makes a difference... it doesn't unless you have no idea what you're doing or no access to the drug otherwise. We live in an age when researching for yourself is easy if you're willing to do the research. The drug and your brain are all that's really required. Hamilton Morris, who's sought out every shaman known to man, finally came to the same conclusion himself. It's a scam.

You're the one who's ignorant of the history of shamanism.

Anyone can call themselves a shaman, but that does NOT make them one!

A shaman is called... and precious few choose it willingly. To be truly called as a shaman is a blessing and a curse. A curse, because of the suffering a genuine shaman undergoes. A journey through the dark underworld of their soul. A blessing, when they survive that nightmare, and come out wiser and stronger, if a bit scarred. But, they are a healer that the tribe depends on.

However... the shaman is not invincible. They can be murdered, just like any other human. As the greedy corporations plundering the Amazon rainforest have demonstrated.
