I'm a nurse, therefore can't do "any" illegal drugs, but what exactly do you mean when you say mushrooms? I think of the vegetable?

Magic mushrooms. Psilocybe cubensis. Can be an amazing experience. Can be a rough few hours.

Personally I could say it's better than alcohol.
It don't cause hangovers.
It increases the appetit and metabolism.
It's anti depressant. Cannabis can kill cancer cells.
Controls Epileptic seizure.
Eases the pain of multiple sclerosis.
Helps with Crohn’s disease.
Reduces severe pain, and nausea from chemo, and stimulates appetite.
Protects the brain from concussion, and trauma.
You'll behave as a normal person in social gathering. Unlike the emotional breakdown issue with alcohol.

I have many years of experience smoking weed. I do think it is possible to have a very conscious and even eye opening experience (iv'e had them) BUT only when used in moderation. Smoking everyday starts to produce a dullness in most people. If I smoke it heavily, even for only a few days, I feel that it puts up a huge barrier to my ability to stay present. My brain is just too dull and yet i get more and more thoughts because the constant weed fog makes me more unconscious. And even when I'm still and present (if you can even call it presence) after heavy smoking, It's like I feel too dumb to even perceive much. I'll basically just be a still stoned statue with none of the magic that comes with stillness while having a clear mind because I'm simply too dulled down. Huge stumbling block.

So I think that it CAN be useful and fun, but if you're smoking all day, everyday thinking that it will help you on your spiritual journey than you are kidding yourself imo. Addiction is a strong identification and attachment of the mind. No drug can give you what sober stillness can.

The chemical they contain - Psilocybin - stimulates the energy body of the individual causes chakras to open. Essentially they greatly magnify the spiritual energy entering the body for a short period of time. Like all things more is not necessarily better - it depends on what energy you are magnifying - and they need to be treated with a lot of respect and care. Yogis in India used to consider them a type of energy medicine and you will find many of the tribal people in America's used them and similar natural substances for the same.

I don't in anyway recommend long term or habitual use of any consciousness altering drug - but I have seen profound benefits in certain individuals from Psilocybin sessions due to its ability to bring in large amounts of high spiritual energy and clear and release built up negative energy from the energy body.

The thing you absolutely must understand however is that "Set" and "setting" are of critical importance and must be well controlled and managed when using this type of substance. That meaning the atmosphere and environment you take it in. They amplify and magnify your energy state. So taking them in a confined or dark space in a depressed atmosphere or a very busy space with loud music and lots of people around ..... brings on that type of amplified experience. It give people a very bad trip.

Taking them in a calm peaceful setting in nature, with good friends in a positive a uplifting environment and setting. Where care has been taken to provide the right atmosphere of love, care, happiness and joy ...... it will tend amplify that experience and can bring people into contact with very high spiritual energy bringing on Euphoric states similar to what people experience during a spiritual awakening (like Tolle's). This can and often does result in profound healing benefits particularly for mental emotional issues (PTSD, trauma related recovery, depression and anxiety disorders) etc.

Michael Pollan’s, How to Change Your Mind, is a good overview of the psychedelic experience.
Be present, be pleasant.

Alternative medicine are more accepted now a days due to it's promising results unlike pharmaceutical medicine, alternative medicine don't give negative effect such as kidney and liver problems when it comes to long term use. As for my alternative medicine usage, I use medical marijuana. Different strain has a variety of uses and effect depending on your needs. This strain has a very potent effect on chronic pains like back pain and joint pain and a lot more.
