Spiritual experiences with LSD

Average: 4.4 (9 votes)

I'm looking for accounts of people who used LSD (acid) for spiritual purposes.

I lately read the article in http://www.realitysandwich.com/lsd_spiritual_aid and am seriously considering to try LSD. I benefited tremendously in the past from Ayahuasca in terms of my spiritual growth and came to realize that certain psychoactive drugs can really advance you spiritually in junctions where you cannot really counter the conditioning of the mind with awareness, meditation techniques and so on.

*** 07/09/2013 - I attach here the renowned masterpiece of Aldos Haxley "The Doors of Perception" written in 1954. Though it was written as a recollection of a Payote trip, it is said that the characteristics are very similar to LSD and so it can serve those who have no idea about this subject.

use of LDS

hi,
its not advisable to use any type of drug let it be LDS as for short time they can take you to higher state, but all is hallucinations and not true awakening experiences, and they make the slave to the users and suck the person and its energy and destroy the nervous system, if used for long time,
blessings

I completely disagree with you

I completely disagree with you. First of all, you put all drugs in one same basket. There is a great difference in the spiritual aspect between LSD, Ayahuasca, Marijuana, San Pedro and so on (which. by the way, are completely non addictive)and addictive drugs (e.g. Heroin and so on). Your generic statements about "drugs" are simply society-driven brainwashing (something one has to be aware of on the spiritual path), it is clear that they do not come from personal experience (otherwise you wouldn't have said them).

Secondly, your statement that they introduce you to hallucinations is again baseless. If and when you try LSD or Ayahuasca you will realize that these "hallucinations" are more real than your regular daily experience of reality. You r subconscious opens, you see your conditioning, you see entities that others in the same room see as well.

Most people in the Western world would say the same things you say about meditation, occult, spirituality, shakti, kundalini and so on. You must go beyond this hearsay-based cultural bias.

You can read in the Ayahuasca thread (http://www.gurusfeet.com/forum/anyone-tried-ayawaska), for example, how tremendous was this great medicine to so many people on the spiritual path and how it allowed them to develop in an unparalleled way comparing to other methods.
Now, regarding LSD, I tried it several times many years ago, it indeed gave me a significant push both psychologically and spiritually as described in the Doors of Perception and other articles but I do prefer to get assisted by natural spirit-related plant-based medicines such as the Ayahuasca and Payote. The process with the latter two is more difficult but it is worth it.

Great tool

Two years ago I participated in a workshop in which in one of the sessions we were assisted by LSD to deepen our awareness and deal with our subconscious. It was a technique involving meditation and LSD and it was conducted by a remarkable psychologist who combined spiritual techniques with modern psychology. The results were great, I found out so much that was buried deep inside that thanks to that medicine I was able to access and process. I also had vivid recollections of events in past lives that explain reactions I have in this life.

I would strongly recommend to do it under the guidance of an experienced guide. I don't think I would have reached the insights I had without that professional guidance.

LSD is a great tool given it is used for spiritual and psychological development and not just for recreational purposes.

Make sure what your

Make sure what your intentions are, make sure you are willing to lose control and dive into the subconscious and beyond, make sure you are fully prepared for surrender, and only then experiment with LSD, not alone, have someone to lead you or just reflect to you. It is a great aid for self development if used properly and moderately.
