Recipe: Instruction and Cautions
As you've heard, Potency varies. The Mushrooms picked early in the season seem to be a bit more potent than those at the end of the season. Although if you know exactly what this mushroom looks like, and I emphasize exactly, it is pretty difficult to mistake anything else for this very obvious mushroom: Never eat ANY Mushroom unless you are ABSOLUTELY 100% sure it is the one you want. Many Amanita genus are deadly as are many other species. This means BE VERY CAREFUL!!
I Can-not stress this enough. BE CAREFUL !!
This is some of the information that I feel is important for anyone that is interested in this experience. Since it is a "DEATH (And Rebirth) EXPERIENCE" it is not for everyone. It bears NO resemblance to any other Entheogen (experience wise) and this includes any other kind of Mushroom.
Please take these Precautions and Suggestions very seriously.
One thing I need to mention right off the bat, is that most people throw up. So you would not want to do this alone as throwing up, while in any out of body experience, can be dangerous in itself. Many famous people have died from choking on their own vomit, do not make the same mistake.
Have friends (monitors) there for sure.
Make sure friends do not influence you in ANY way about your experience. No on site analysis.
Make sure friends know your hearing is intensified as well as your psychic perceptions so NO conversations within your proximity,especially about your experience.
Have friends write down or record what you say.
Asking questions for clarity is ok, but avoid leading questions.
If you have a particular quest:Write down your own questions for friends to ask you (reminder).
If 2 or more people do it together they will merge and have a communal experience. Like the Vulcan mind meld.
Music does not matter once state is achieved.
If you watch a movie you will BE the movie. (Avoid Boxing matches)This has been reported in the latter parts of stage 2 experience also.
People who are familiar with shamanic/ecstatic trance will not be surprised if an explorer takes off all their clothes and runs around babbling. Know this is a possibility. Friends: If you have never seen first hand an initiation ecstatic-trance in South Africa or South America or at least a video-tape of one you may want to hunt some down. You will recognize it when you see it. Also when someone enters the spirit realm they put off their bodies. This means they may hit the ground. Be prepared for this possibility and prevent injuries accordingly. Write down what appears to be babbling because it will prove to be very unusual and interesting analysis material for later.
The best time/place for Amanitas:
Late night/early morning. Wide open spaces (no-one in yelling range) The Sunrise and sunlight are much better than the darkness, the light literally goes through you. You will feel yourself being born into Light (feeling each and every cell as it changes) AWESOME !!
The following recipe is for attempting the full-blown Amanita muscaria death-rebirth experience. Positive results have been reported by people who consume smaller amounts every day as well. This is the way to get at the full experience. It is most highly suggested that you recycle your urine because this is the high-magic alchemical process. Your body prepares the chemicals and separates them into your urine sop you can safely re-ingest them in a more potent state. You don't need to but you will need to consume more mushrooms if you dont and the mushrooms contain more of the Ibotenic acid which causes the uncomfortable and less desirable physical effects (sweating/nausea) whereas your body converts the Ibotenic acid to Muscimol which is that which produces the desirable effects. So if you can get over that old conditioning you will be the higher for it.
A decent size cap is 6" use 4 to 6 with stems. (Approx 30g)
Dry them first (Decarboxylation) crush or shred into powder or small pieces. (A coffee grinder or osterizer work well for powdering the dried mushrooms).
Add to 6 cups of water keep just barely boiling (bubbling) for 1 hour.
Strain and cool. Drink 2 cups (or roughly half of the liquid). Or you can also just mix it relatively thin and drink the liquid with the pulp (this is what I suggest) but just consuming the strained material is easier (in case you are trying to keep this as easy as possible).
Make sure you make water before your first cup, because the rest of your water you are going to re-ingest. Yes I mean the consumption of your urine. Don't worry, it will not hurt you. In fact if your ill it will help your body fight off whatever ails you since all of the antibodies your immune system makes to fight off disease are filtered off into your urine (an intentional miraculous process). Besides you are a serious explorer aren't you? Remember, in the Christianity section, I said that Jesus said to the woman at the well, "If you knew who I was, you would ask me for waters to drink" He was not kidding. It is an alchemical process even for those who are conditioned with repugnance to certain things. It is just an easier one to swallow if you are not fed a predisposition to abhore the idea. Just chase it with some Iced Tea, you'll be fine. The post-alchemical-process material is much much better, and worth the effort. After first passing water wait an hour before consuming any more source material. Do not waste your urine keep recycling untill you achieve the proper effects.
Wait 2 full hours for effects.
If desired effect is not achieved (you will definitely know)drink 1 more cup.
After 1 more hour, if the state is not achieved repeat.
Hopefully you have had some practice with Meditation. This comes into play because you are waking your Spiritual Consciousness into your Surface Consciousness state. There is massive Time compression.
3 states of Consciousness: This will help explain the experience.
1) Surface (Conditioned) consciousness. Internal dialog and thought perception is approximately the same speed as voice (conversation).
2) Sub/supra (dream state) consciousness. Some time compression, thought speed accelerated. Example: You may dream a whole days event in a fewminutes.
3) Spiritual (the real you) consciousness. Massive Time compression. thought speed accelerated massively. Possibly beyond time itself.
As in Meditation you let all thoughts pass through you without reaction. You may experience a floating or sinking sensation. The Yogis say to go UP and hold yourself there. When you go down you experience the other side. If you go down you eventually will come back up. It seems the further down you go the higher you also go. This may seem confusing but while in the state you will understand.
The 3 stages of effects:
1) The first stage is generally euphoric. Expect a lightness of being as well as an assumption of increased strength.
2) The second stage is where you will feel a lightness or a heaviness coming on. This is where you are starting to "Put Off" your physical body. Expect to feel like you are spiritually (and physically) falling through or shooting into space. You may feel an excessive HEAVINESS in your feet, legs (up to the knees or hips) then moving to the rest of your torso. If you lie down (highly recommended) you will feel your whole body getting heavy, and the sensation that you are flying out of it.
3) The third stage sometimes has an "In and Out" effect as it comes on. You should definitely lie down when this happens. You will feel a FLASH that is a jump into another dimension. When this happens, if you are standing up you will fall down. So make sure you are lying comfortably as this starts to happen. These flashes will at first be instantaneous. Leaving and returning having seen something completely different than your present surroundings. Then the flash turns into a full dimensional shift. This is when many people experience their life flashing before their eyes. You may start to panic, thinking you have eaten the wrong thing or have made a fatal mistake. This is where you will want your friends to reassure you that you are not going to die. Friends may also call the person by name and wake them temporarily. This is good for monitoring purposes because for the experiencer things are happening so fast that there is no way to bring back all of the things that have been seen. If you do not reach the 3rd stage, you may want to try again at another time as THIS 3rd stage is where all the action is happening and is the sought after effect.
Amanita Muscaria is not similar to anything else. No other experiences have any relationship to this experience. Excepting perhaps the traditional N.D.E. (Near Death Experience). When the time compression factor occurs expect to see your life flashing before your eyes. The reason this is thought of as a near death experience is this effect. If you understand the concept of Re-incarnation then you can grasp the concept that you have died before, maybe many, many times. Therefore this FLASH of your life before your eyes is familiar. This is not just a simple "hey I felt like I was dying" thing. You LITERALLY KNOW you are dying because of the nature of the experience. If you are not familiar with (or a believer in) Reincarnation, it has little bearing with the experience itself. Just know you will see your life flash before your eyes (interpret it as you will).I know that this whole extrapolation of this event is hard to believe, but if you feel inclined to do it by yourself (without friends) this is a choice I can only advise against. It's just a suggestion, but a VERY strong one.
I am adding the following from page 4 of the website because it is so very important when a recipe for success is being sought. Keep in mind that I suggest that you always obtain any plant entheogens you intend to consume on your own. This means go out into the fields and mountains and pick that which nature offers you. Be careful not to piss off any property owners, or other people that might think it their business to concern themselves with what you are ingesting into your body. Try not to associate yourself with those individuals that traffic in illegal substances. Although it is usually the pot-smokers that have the line on shrooms. Those engaged in Heroin, Crank, or Crack usually don't have the mushies anyways. Stay far away from those, it is too dangerous. It is usually best to pick your own. Amanita muscaria is not illegal, and drug dealers will not have them. With that in mind consult the following. I feel that this is the original recipe for SOMA, AMBROSIA, AMRITA, NECTAR and a sacrament known by many other names. Just say KNOW.

Although Christianity (as most every other Religion)
claims to have the express route to God, and exclusivity to the heavenly
realms, this can be found imbedded, hidden inside most every religious
order on our infantile planet. If (and I say this only to be objective)
there is validity to any or all of these ancient, and not so ancient
traditions, it must be found in the real meat of the concept and actuality
of the existence of an "other world" a spiritual existence that is best
experienced and understood in the way it originally was meant to be
This first hand understanding is through the ingestion
of the holy substance of which there has been so much written that this
brief expose' merely scratches the surface. It IS this direct communal
contact that is truely the means whereby a human being can experience his
true spiritual nature. One must take very seriously his or her own
spirituality, for this is that which we truly are. As I stated in the
opening sentence, "This experience is of extremely GREAT value". So much
in fact that I feel it necessary to the evolutionary process of each and
every individual and inevitably to all of Mankind.
