Sometimes It Is Better To SKIP A Microdose…

Updated: Sep 21






Yesterday was a pretty special day… Because it was my Birthday!


Birthdays are a funny thing… I don’t always enjoy them… So I usually like to spend the day alone or with the people closest to me, and dive into Ceremony…


So yesterday was No different.


For me, ceremony is about opening a space for deep communication with Spirit and With Nature… Sometimes it is joyful and uplifting… Other times it can involve some dark SHIT!


Naturally to go into this Space, Medicine is helpful… It opens those doorways to connect with the Divine… When we take a Dose (large or small), we begin to see the world with Different Eyes…


For me, it is not always a visual thing though… Often it is a deep FELT sense experience…


I just FEEL the divine in all things… I feel that deep connection with Spirit and With Nature through the CORE of my being… It is AWESOME!

(even when I just take a lil’ 100mg capsule…)





So when my friend and I set out on an adventure we brought some FUNGUY with us… We planned on Microdosing. Nothing huge, maybe just 200mg or so…


When we arrived at our destination, though… We realized we didn’t need them…


In fact, we felt it was better to skip the Microdose all together…


Now if you know me, you may think this is a bit of a crazy thought… I mean I do run a Microdose company after all… PLUS it is my BIRTHDAY…


But it’s not crazy at all!


In fact, lately, I haven’t been microdosing much… I just don’t feel like I need it.


And that’s the way microdosing flows for me. I go through phases where I will microdose daily…


I will DIVE DEEP into a process with Medicine… I will explore my Shadows and all those nooks and crannies inside of me that can be easy to miss when we are caught up in day-to-day life…


At other times, I will go weeks and even months, with NO microdoses… If I don’t feel a call from the Medicine, I don’t force it…

That’s how I respect the Mushrooms. There needs to be consent and an invitation. Without that, I prefer to step back and just live life “without” them…


A lot of times, I actually get the MOST insights when I am NOT microdosing…


I know it sounds a bit crazy… And maybe it even makes you wonder… “Does that mean Microdosing doesn’t work…?”


From my experience… It is fairly simple.


When I microdose, I RECEIVE so much information… and CLARITY and TRUTH are shone through my ENTIRE Being…


This raises my energy level… It elevates me.


When I stop, take space, respect the medicine, and just BE… That is when the MAGIC happens.


All that Truth, Clarity, and Energetic “Downloads” start pouring in… And I can actually INTEGRATE them.


Yesterday was the Kind of Day.








All day, it was as if the line between Human (me) and Nature was nonexistent… I guess you could say, I felt One with Nature… I felt as if i was a “wild” human…


It was Amazing.


The trees, the Birds, The Rocks… They all spoke to me… I FELT them as PART of me…


To explain… I want you to do something for me. It will only take a sec…


Look at your hand, and put your awareness into it so you FEEL your hand… Simple.


Now, just imagine if you could look at a plant, or an animal and do JUST THAT… You could FEEL it, as if it was YOU!


Well that is how it felt… If you’ve ever taken a full on dose of mushrooms, then you make already know what I am talking about…


But what about WITHOUT any medicine?! It’s almost unheard of…


Well yesterday I experienced that, and it was Pure Bliss. And I know it was (in part) from all the work I have done over the years with Micro doses AND macro doses…


Enough Story Time… When Should You NOT Microdose?


Well Here’s the thing… When you FIRST start microdosing, you should not do what I did! That’s right… In this case please don’t follow my lead…


What I am talking about in this post is called intuitive microdosing, and it has a time and a place.


When you first begin your journey though, I always recommend choosing a schedule and protocol… And STICKING to it! For at least 3 months…


When people begin a microdosing journey, they do so because they have the desire to CHANGE something in their lives. Change takes time, dedication and commitment. It takes structure.


When we bring in Intuitive microdosing too soon, sometimes true lasting change does not actually… Well.. Last.


Why You Should Microdose Regularly For 3 Months…


So let’s talk about the why here. It takes about 3 months, or 100 days, to create a NEW and LASTING habit. We know the old saying, “it takes 21 days to make a habit”... Well that’s actually not true.


It takes about 100 days. Humans are slow learners.


One of the big reasons for this, is that habits are built on a foundation that are often unconscious. So it takes TIME to SEE, FEEL and KNOW those unconscious beliefs and foundations… it takes about 1 month.


Now that you Know them… It takes about 1 month to BREAK your “bad” habit…


And now, finally, it takes about 1 month to create your NEW and HEALTHY habit…


3 months. 100 days. Daily dedication.


Why You Need To WAIT Before You Do Intuitive Microdosing…


So let’s say you’re on this healing journey… You start microdosing. You decide to follow your own inner guidance and just microdose when you “feel” like it (aka intuitive microdosing)...


Well, that sounds great and all… But here’s the Truth. You know those “bad” habits you’re trying to break? Well they Do NOT want you to break them… They want to keep on living.


So they will do everything they can do ensure their own survival… Including “deceiving” you.


So maybe they know the microdose is working and helping… maybe they give you the “intuitive feeling” you should take a break… You trust that feeling, but in reality it is trickery!


This is a metaphor of course for the Ego and the Mind. But we find it helpful to talk in metaphors…


And please get us straight, we don’t want you to get into a fearful place around those inner “feelings”... Because it is GOOD to follow your heart… But with DISCERNMENT!


When you decide to do something ceremonial and healing like Microdosing… Stick to your commitment! Because the Universe LOVES to TEST US…


So that’s why we suggest doing your WORK with the Microdose first… THEN pick up intuitive microdosing!


Finding The Protocol That is Right For You…


Everyone is different. All 8 Billion of us! So finding the right protocol may be unique for you. Generally speaking, we recommend you get clear on your sweet Spot… Find the dose that’s right for you.


Here’s our general rule.



  • For those that are confident and want to get started, and know they can handle the medicine. Let’s just say “normal” people… Start with 100mg.


  • For those who know they have a high tolerance to medicine, or for those that take antidepressants or smoke marijuana daily, try starting with 200mg.


Simple as that.


Okay, now that you have your dose… Choose a schedule. We recommend 5 days on, 2 days off. Other people prefer:

  • 4 days on, 3 days off

  • Dosing every 3rd day

  • Dosing every other day


Choose your schedule and stick to it. The most important thing is to take at least 2 days off per week!


Now for duration… We suggest a MINIMUM of 3 months. Some people like to start with just 4 - 6 weeks, but as we talked about above… We recommend 3 months / 100 days to start. Some people go for 6 months or longer.


But after the initial 3 months, you will have a good idea of where to go from there.


However… Be aware that if you go beyond 3-6 months, it is good to take 1-4 week long breaks. Some people go even longer… This prevents building a tolerance and allows space for integration.


Once You Have Completed Your Protocol… Now it’s Time For Intuitive Microdosing!


Ok now that you have done your “work”, intuitive microdosing is a GREAT approach! Follow your heart. You have your connection with the medicine, and it will guide you as needed…


Still Not Sure What You’re Doing? Consider Booking In For Microdose Coaching or Consultations!
