Why The Benefits of Microdosing DON'T Always Last (And what to do about it)

Updated: Sep 21




Often when people begin to microdose mushrooms, something amazing happens. Life becomes brighter, anxiety and depression diminish, mood and focus increases, and their connection to themselves, to others and to nature is enhanced…


The thing is though, that over time… These effects often diminish… Most people blame it on tolerance… The truth is though, this is not because of tolerance, it is because most people are not given the proper guidance and protocols!


I remember when I first started microdosing, I was amazed…


At the time, life was pretty challenging and I was going through a “dark night of the soul” moment… I would wake up feeling as heavy as lead… It was like a combination of gravity and glue kept me stuck in bed, staring at my dull white ceiling…


At the time, I had nothing to look forward to… No purpose… No drive… Just the constant gnawing anxiety in the pit of my stomach, like something was trying to escape and break free…


I didn’t have much to lose, I mean my life was at a pretty low point… So when my friend suggested I try microdosing, I jumped at the idea like a kid when the school bell rings…


I will never forget the first time I took a dose, it was just the very small blue stained “tip” of a dried psilocybin mushroom… That day was the first time in a long while that I felt inspired, free and uplifted…


I felt like someone had filled up every one of my cells with helium… I thought to myself, “someone better tie me down, or I might just float away! I feel AMAZING!”...


That gnawing feeling in my stomach was gone, and there was this warm, fuzzy feeling in my chest as if someone had lit a flame there… for the first time in a long while, I actually felt connected to my heart…


This experience continued everyday for about a month, and then it started to diminish… The old patterns of anxiety and darkness began to creep back into my mind and heart…


I was so confused! I didn't understand why the microdoses weren’t working like they “should”... I mean I thought I had found the holy grail, and now the cup was empty…


But you see, that’s because I didn’t have any guidance or structure… However, I knew that if I experienced this once with the mushrooms, I could experience it again…


This set me on a quest to discover more about this mysterious little fungi, and why it worked so effectively (at least at first)… and why these effects don’t always last…


So Why is this? What’s so special about a microdose?





Well, after years of microdosing, and working with many experienced and inexperienced microdosers alike… I found some intriguing insights!


I’ve found the answer to this question lies deep within the mystery of the mushroom… And with any great mystery, the answer remains elusive…


From my own experience, I have seen that all these benefits (and more) unfold for microdosers because mushrooms have an amazing capacity to reveal and bring forward our “True Self”... Or as I like to call it our “Best Selves”.


When your truest and best self is brought forward, you are living authentically. You are embodied in YOUR unique expression. This state of being is naturally joyful, loving, heartfelt, present, and… Magical! And in this way, your innate connection to yourself, to others, to nature, and to the Greater Whole is uncovered.


Anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, addiction, and all the other hosts of modern day “illnesses” are literally incompatible with your Truest and Best Self.


So What Exactly Is Your Truest and Best Self?

Personally, my perception and experience of this is that our True Self is literally our Spirit or Soul. This is the untouchable and eternal part of us that is beyond any story or trauma... However, not everyone may resonate with this description, so put your own perceptions and words around it.


However you define it, See it as the inherent goodness that lives within the hearts of all Humans… The part of us that is innately drawn to help one another, to live life in a loving way, and to care for life.


It is the fundamental aspect of the human experience that inherently connects every single one of us…


It is the human conscience… Our “moral compass” that helps us discern between good and evil…


Here’s the thing, if it were as easy as simply taking a microdose to live as your Best Self…The whole world would be microdosing!


Beginner’s Luck? Here’s The Thing You Need To Know…

There’s a concept called beginner’s luck… and there’s actually some truth in it…


Often when we first start an endeavor or a new experience, there’s a flow to it… Like a grace period or a “romance” phase… Everything is smooth and easy… and then over time, we are asked to up our game and become experts… And this is where most people lose faith…


It’s like climbing a mountain. At first you have amazing endurance, and then you get tired… It may feel like you will never make it to the top… And then seemingly out of nowhere you get a second wind… And the momentum is back!


Microdosing is similar.


How To Become A Microdosing Master…




There’s many ways to get to the top of the “microdosing” mountain… I will share the way that I have found to be effective for myself and many others I have worked with…


Take what resonates, and find your own unique expression of it!


Through following these 7 steps, you will find that the joy, connection and love of your Best Self becomes a lasting experience… with and without microdosing!


These 7 steps are broken down in detail in the How To Microdose Mushrooms: A Definitive Guide blog post. For now, here they are in a nutshell…

I mean, a lot of these steps can be done with just 20 minutes a day, and a few days here and there to go deeper into the process… Once you’ve got some wind beneath your wings, you’ll be flying in no time…
