HypnoFridays! Week 1:
A Night to Yourself!

Hello! And welcome, to Trezzahn's HypnoFriday's!
As part of a new weekly activity I am beginning a continuous blog on Friday's, posting up some fun things for anyone else celebrating a hypnotic Friday to do, just like me, as well as some useful information related to!
@darkflame gave me this idea with his pizza nights and I am hoping we could perhaps do something similar to this once a week here with hypno tokens! Or perhaps another coin! Comment ideas and opinions!
Now, on with the night!
Personally, I plan out my microdoses of psilocybin daily. Once a week, Friday's, I celebrate the end of the week with a now named "hypno day" and have a larger nighttime dose to allow me to enter deep thought; to do research; to discover.
I enjoy these days, as I would wish everyone else who follows these and doses could do the same. But there are three major things to plan out before this day:
- Your environment
- Your surrounding people, if any, and
- Your goal that you wish to attain from a dose of this size
One must, going into their day, - and remember, this day, night, evening, whatever; is for YOU -, dose correctly according to strain, strength, potency, and tolerance.
2g dried of potent P. Cyanescens would produce a much more thought-provoking trip than that of the visual distortions one would perceive after consuming 3.5g of P. Cub. Golden Mammoths.
- ancientpathnaturals provides a wonderful guide on which psilocybin mushroom types produce which effects and how strong these effects are; that can be found here - https://ancientpathnaturals.com/ancient-path-naturals-mushrooms-and-more-blog/-psilocybe-cubensis-shroom-strains-comparing-magic-mushroom-strains/
Further, Psilocybin, Psilocin, and Baeocystin are very different in that they produce different effects on the mind and body.
With each strain differing in content, it is important to compare these effects and the tolerance of the user to their total body weight as well.
Generally, the agreed upon dosage for body weight is 0.25mg/1kg for an average dose, 0.5mg/1kg for a high dose, and 1mg/1kg for a heroic/extreme dose.
- CurativeMushrooms provides a great dosage and microdosing guide, which can be found here: https://curativemushrooms.com/magic-mushroom-dosage-heroic-dose-microdosing
Once one is familiar with the different mushroom strains, -and there are many (hence not going through all them on here), - one can then compare potency and effects among a base strain that they choose to start with, and dose accordingly in the future based on that of the below chart and above weight dosage calculations.
Based on this, one can come to a general understanding of what dose and what strain
they wish to consume; and when and where they wish to do so!
Now that you have a general basis of where to start, let us begin with HypnoFriday!
We're gonna start with consuming dry mushroom. Next week, we'll look at mushroom tea - a much more body-focused trip in my experience. You can take your dose now.
For the first 30 or 40 so odd minutes you will begin to periodically feel waves come over you. Waves of motion and slight moving while things begin to unravel in your mind.
Take this time to go for a short walk and take in your surroundings. Bask in the evening sun or enjoy a pleasant stroll through the park. Keeping your body moving helps with metabolism of the psilocybin and psilocin so sometimes walking can even make effects come on quicker and stronger.
Now that we're back and starting to have some feelings we'll start the night!
First, let's begin by throwing on some tunes while I chit chat.
We'll start here:
Mr. Suicide Sheep has an amazing collection of trip and dosing music and almost all of his postings are songs of just pure perfection.
Liquid EDM is my go-to for listening music when I take psilocybin. Most drum and bass styles of music go well during a dose, and this feeling during a come-up is what we'll examine next.
Okay, done with that one?
Throw on this;
I won't bother you on this one. Focus on this video and let the emotions flow through you. Let the visuals and beauty of the music video guide you through the beginning of your trip.
One last song before we change the pace:
Focus on this video, trust me, it's worth it. I personally call this perfection and am absolutely in love with this style.
Next, we switch it up a bit.
I bet your body is wanting to move around;
Throw this on and figure out what you feel like this trip. I find preparing the environment for a trip is important, but having fun figuring out what to do during is just as.
Maybe you want to focus on a thought and fix a situation; or maybe do some artwork and adventure into your mind.
Let us begin!
Start by throwing on a playlist for you to listen to!
If you have a seperate audio system, throw this on one screen seperate from audio:
Now that we're all set up, let's look at something that might strike us an interest or an idea.
Try checking out opensea.io !
Gone through there? What about https://nftshowroom.com/get-started ?
Plenty of works and ideas floating around to make money; maybe that be a good idea and outcome of this trip.
Let's draw! Maybe paint! If you don't have any lead or acrylics, or just any paint in general, plan for next Friday!
Down for some trippy artwork? NFTS?
I've also started following Tom Napp's curative collections at https://unsplash.com/collections/11652504/psychedelic-patterns
One may enjoy these while dosed as I have.
Want to enjoy some more fractals? I found this beauty,
I also sometimes use a great apk to make my own fractals!
Write down ideas. Write down thoughts. Make a trip journal, as I have, to read about previous journeys that you can reminesce on! Good or bad!
If your mind garners you, note what you can do your next trip if you come up with ideas this one. This extra motivation and positive outcome ensures each trip is looked at positively and negative days or "bad trips" won't occur.
Further, in the mood to chill at this point? PsychedSubstance does some great podcasts, his most recent posted discusses a broad range of psychedelic topics. I love listening to discussions while dosing. You can find that here:
Onward; in the mood to discover something new? A new game or a new dapp? Check out https://www.stateofthedapps.com/ , there are many unique dapps that get added to this list consistently. I enjoy checking this when bored, but find it more fun when I have dosed!
By this point you could be halfway through your dose, about 2 hours. This is usually the "relaxing" part of the trip.
Looking for some interesting ways to generate passive income from a simple download? Give "pi" a try, https://minepi.com/ a new crypto-token that is soon to become a networked coin! Very interesting work being done here!
By now you should be starting to come down or at least feeling the relaxant effects of the
psilocybin as your body begins to netabolize the remainder. While every person may be different, I have provided approximately 3-4hrs of topics, ideas, links, videos, pictures and more to hopefully keep one satisfied for at least part of their trip.
Hopefully this has been as enjoyable a night for you as it will be for me - going along with my own trip - by the end of it!
I wish you the very best and implore you to post up some cool finds, images of fractals, or anything else hyonotic right on up here in the comments and I will for sure periodically looking through them. Maybe get a conversation started?
For now I say, safe journeys through the mind and stay safe! Enjoy your night as I will enjoy mine, and welcome to...
Thanks for tuning in!
