Can hallucinogenics awaken you to a higher state of consciousness…?

your experiences?
I’m just wondering because I know there are people who take peyote on spirit quests.

Yes, but unfortunately, I never properly documented my acid tripping moments in high school. I do remember thinking some very interesting thoughts though.

I would think that they would inhibit your consciousness rather than aid it, but that it my opinion only.

It’s actually a lower state of consciousness because you are no longer able to think rationally and interact with reality…

Do not dampen and abuse the gifts of thought, reason, and logic that God gave you. When you do that with drugs you are throwing these gifts in God’s face and saying “I’d rather be a confused idiot for a few hours than use the abilities you gave me”
