Do not generalize, your fear of entheogens may be connected to media distortions and programing, after all before they were abused by the mainstream,
they were used in ritual stances with great results.
On the contrary, I would not recommend meditating as much, Dick Sutphen explains that meditating can get our brainwaves in beta state, our minds may
believe that blanking the mind is beneficial, when in fact one becomes much more vulnerable to external influences, as the brain gets accustomed to
being semi awake, I believe that we came here to this world to experiment thought and intent, what good can it do th blank the mind? sure it may seem
beneficial as stress and negative thoughts dwindle, but also positive emotions and intent become dormant, is like being half awake most of the time,
our minds become vulnerable and we let our guards down, without mentioning passive, sure we may not get angry and react more calmly but on the long
run, it will do more harm than good...
You can achieve lucid awareness in many ways, not just one, its like getting to the mountaintop in a helicopter, sure some will get angry and point
finger, but its the getting there that counts, as one is completely transformed...

weeks, there is a great probability that you will not return to full beta consciousness. You will remain in a fixed state of alpha for as long as you
continue to meditate. I'm not saying this is bad--if you do it yourself. It may be very beneficial. But it is a fact that you are causing your mind
to go flat. I've worked with meditators on an EEG machine and the results are conclusive: the more you meditate, the flatter your mind becomes until,
eventually and especially if used to excess or in combination with decognition, all thought ceases. Some spiritual groups see this as nirvana--which
is bull#. It is simply a predictable physiological result. And if heaven on earth is non-thinking and non-involvement, I really question why we are

Regarding the OP, congratulations what you feel is the grip of reality letting go, the cage of your mind and body dissolving, that pain, and feeling
of strangeness are the remnants of your blocked energy flow.
You cannot be the same way you where before, you have gained the insight of the adept, the path from here is up across the mountains and valleys of
human disbelief and conditioning.
You summed it up, its like waking up from a dream, you have been sleeping, now welcome to the world of your unlimited potential.
There is much you now need to do to remain conscious and aware, those next to you will try to put you down, will now behave different towards you, but
they are part of the cage as well, reality will bend and show you facets it never had before, now its your responsibility to do something meaningful
with the knowledge you have gained.
I recommend reading this book Prometheus Rising
It will help you a great deal.

What you felt and understood will be yours forever, it will give you strength and wisdom, use it well, for not many can even imagine what it feels
