blow one’s mind



  • verb to be transported beyond a normal state of mental equilibrium, experience sudden euphoria or disorientation. A key term from the lexicon of drug users of the 1960s, this phrase was rapidly generalised to cover less momentous instances of surprise, awe, admiration, etc. Now dated, the expression is still in many people’s passive vocabulary, allowing it to be used, e.g., in advertising copy as late as 1989.
