Hallucinogenic species of the Psilocybe genus have a history of use among the native peoples of Mesoamerica for religious communion, divination, and healing, from pre-Columbian times to the present day.
It is reported that Mushroom healers did cure such severe illnesses as cancer, HIV, short-sightedness, chronic diseases (e.g. chronic malaria), severe psychological illnesses etc. with the aid of magic mushrooms.
European witches seem to have used it in combination with wine to make the trip more pleasant (“softer”), though I don’t advise it since the effect of alcohol on the Ninos Santos is a diminishing one.
As with other psychedelics such as LSD, the experience, or “trip”, is strongly dependent upon set and setting. A negative environment could contribute to a bad trip, whereas a comfortable and familiar environment would set the stage for a pleasant experience. Psychedelics make experiences more intense, so if a person enters a trip in an anxious state of mind, they will likely experience heightened anxiety on their trip. Many users find it preferable to ingest the mushrooms with friends, people with whom they are familiar, or people who are familiar with ‘tripping’. The psychological consequences of psilocybin use include hallucinations and an inability to discern fantasy from reality.
The Mesoamerican indigenous lore goes, that the avatar or god Quetzalcoatl was also known as Kukul-kan carries Jesus in his mouth over the land of the Indians and the blood that drops from Jesus’ heart turns into the Ninos Santos.
In ancient times it was not the figure of Jesus that was carried around but a famous indigenous warrior from which heart the blood dropped.
Ingest about 1 to 4 mushrooms or less (try microdosing first) to enter a trancelike visionary state with deep insights into the nature of reality and/or the spirit world.
