Dyspnea Truncated Icosahedra

    Salvia divinorum (extract)


been about 7 years since SalviaD propogated into my home from Salvia-Scotlands home. She also arrived as dried leaves from another point of the globe which I extracted with the kind lessons publically available from Daniel Siebert. In that first year I got to know how to meet with Salvia and learnt how she can:
* Show me my childhood memories and reconnect and exagerate forgotten associations.
* Merge me with the landscape, sky, hill, quarry and bird tune.
* Merge me with friends who are too far to meet or ill on their death bed.

Its been a few years since I last met them/her/us.

This evening I presented myself as a question to her - sort of 'so what's next'?
I presented myself as a question to her - sort of 'so what's next'?
I have a good home life, young daughter, interesting job but little free time beyond this.

I was gently strobed into the shape of truncated icosahedron where my head/feet formed the nodes and my body was the edges. 'I' remained at the base of the ball facing upward but I was also repeatedly strobed into the expanding sphere.

The space contained in the rapidly expanding ball was comforting, i.e. the short lived wakeful opiate sensation that is always there with salvia. I felt welcome as long as I had a will to learn. The dose must have been mild as I felt I was in control of how many layers of strobing would go and also the imagery remained symmetric and tidy.

I started conversing and this automatically was spoken out loud even though I intended this to be internal speech. I cant remember the few sentences exchanged but it was something about the type of question and willingness/spiritual-motivation required to grow in life.

My chest glowed golden yellow (a thousand times strobed). I was overly aware of my breathing like on the edge of a panic attack but I didnt feel panicked. I was 'told' that to learn more I would have to deal with this dyspnea.

I'm now trying to learn how not to get too aware of breathing to the point I cant tell when its time to inhale/exhale.
