The term ecstasy has many meanings. Interestingly, the key word, ecstasy, can have both sexual and religious connotations.
Ecstasy essentially refers to those emotional, psychological and mental situations that induce a state of peace. It is similar to a trance-like environment, where the person moves to a completely different realm, away from the current world of wealth and power. Beggars and many other ordinary people induce ecstasy through regularly practiced meditations. Ecstasy reduces the consciousness of the present world and expands the spiritual state. Many people with such ecstatic awareness report finding euphoria. These ecstatic euphoric visions can be very common in your apparitions and are emotional or intuitive and even physical in nature.
In fact, many mental training programs on the market today claim to enable students to induce such ecstatic moods. Many gyms also offer the means to enter the ecstatic state through yoga sessions. The ecstatic mind, in this sense, allows the person to seek typical experiences and also to communicate telepathically with a person who is also in this ecstatic state of mind at a predefined time anywhere on earth. In other words, a person in ecstasy is actually turning away from the world of ordinary consciousness.
The word has also been used as a trade name for the drug MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) which promotes sexual stimulation among its users. Merck, the German pharmaceutical company, had patented ecstasy in 1914. It was initially used as an appetite suppressant. Precisely because ecstasy can induce a feeling of openness and ease, it was recommended in the 1970s to psychotherapy patients so that the psychologist could observe the functioning of their mental states. However, animal research has shown that this oral drug, ecstasy, causes brain damage. Ecstasy was banned in 1986.
Related to other drugs such as amphetamine and mescaline, ecstasy is a sexual stimulant and is known as “E”, “Doves”, “XTC” and “Adam” among many other similar nicknames.
It is mainly for this last reason that the word has been widely used around the world. Ecstasy is now banned, but it can still be available in local pharmacies with a prescription. This oral drug popularly known as ecstasy is used by teenagers and sexually active people to stimulate their basic instincts and artificially cause intense pleasure or joy through physical contact that ultimately leads to sexual acts.
The drug Ecstasy has been banned because it has the potential to permanently destroy nerve cells in the brain. Ecstasy can release serotonin, the neurotransmitter; or even block the (synaptic) terminal that actually releases serotonin; or to reduce the amount of serotonin in the brain.
Ecstasy is similar to oral medications that treat erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence in men. Many people associate ecstasy with Viagra, Cialis and generic Viagra. Ecstasy can be used by both men and women. However, you should always consult a doctor before taking ecstasy because people with weak hearts or blood pressure problems should not take ecstasy.
