Hello all, I'm a pretty experienced user of a broad range of psychedelics - shrooms, acid, sub-breakthrough doses of DMT, 5-MeO-MiPT, 4-HO-DiPT, and 25i-nBOME - and I always find, pretty much no matter the scenario, I don't really get much deep introspective thought or any kind of unraveling of unsolved problems in my life. I've done relatively high doses of every drug listed except DMT, because I want to either wait for death to go all the way or bring it on slowly through ayahuasca. Though I've never had ego death, I have some vicarious understanding of what it does through trip reports and the like. Anyway, whenever I trip, I get to this happy, goofy state of euphoria and laughter - things just seem to flow together in a funny way. But I've really never had an experience that has made a serious lasting impact on my life like I keep reading about. So my question is, is there anything I can do to mentally or physically prepare myself to have a deep introspective trip? Terence McKenna always said to just take more if you haven't 'been there' yet, but I keep thinking there must be something you can do beforehand to increase the likeliness of a meaningful trip.
