What Is Flow State and how can Microdosing help achieve entering a Flow State:
A flow state is something that every human has experienced in their life at one point or another. It is the mental state of feeling energized, focused, and fully involved in the performance of an activity; also, simply known as “being in the zone.” When achieving a flow state, your brain drops from the Beta Wave thinking space and shifts toward Alpha oscillations. Alpha waves are the resting state of the brain and aid in calmness, alertness, integration of the mind/body and overall mental coordination.
How To Achieve Flow State?
Flow states can be achieved through practices such as meditation, yoga, sports, exercise, or mentally challenging yourself in some way and Microdosing psilocybin can aid in assisting this process. Microdosing can help users enter flow states due to its ability to dampen the effects of an often over-stimulated part of our brain, known as the “Default Mode Network” (DMN). The DMN is a large network of interacting brain regions that are known to have activity highly correlated with each other and distinct from other networks in the brain. The often over-stimulated DMN can cause humans to overthink and often step out of the “now” to question the past or future. There are many studies that suggest an overactive DMN can also cause depression. Since Microdosing psilocybin limits the DMN, the brain is able to make connections between networks that would otherwise not communicate with each other. With a limited DMN, the effects of depression are limited, new brain connections are created, and these factors ultimately aid in the entering of a flow state.
Microdosing Mushrooms For Flow State
Microdosing Psilocybin will also remove the ego, which will allow the subconscious to shine. “Ego” is often associated with the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which has little activity when people are in a state of flow. This allows your brain to be free of making calculated socially influenced decisions and allows your subconscious to make immediate uninfluenced decisions.
Some may wonder if Microdosing on a continuing basis to avoid depression and entering flow states is beneficial or even feasible. The answer to that question is something that each individual must find on there own. Users of psilocybin have said that it allows them to find themselves and detach from the expectations set upon them by society, family, friends, etc. By opening your mind to who you really are and living your life the way you want to, entering flow states will come naturally on a day to day basis.
