Elevate consciousness with Reishi
Reishi or Ganoderma Lingzhi, meaning miraculous mushroom, is a fungus that plays a vital role in traditional Asian medicine for its numerous health-enhancing properties.
This red mushroom is an alchemical health tonic and a psychedelic. Reishi is said to have the ability to help expand our consciousness and reach a deeper state of awareness. Reishi is also a Shen-expander, widening the spiritual elements of our psyches.
Although much softer and subtler than the compound of psilocybin itself, Reishi has the potential to shift and even recalibrate our perception of reality, offering us a step into an altered state of being.
Those who have integrated Reishi into their life have reported “feelings of expansion” as well as “interconnection” and “a shimmering reality”. Going through a shift in experience, either through adaptogenic or psilocybin mushrooms, is without a doubt emotionally liberating. Although this experience can provoke both negative and positive thoughts, they are mostly reported to be euphoric.
The Reishi mushroom is considered an entheogen (Tierney 2010), which allows us a spiritual enhancement, a re-ignition of our souls.
