Last night I had the opportunity to try my ayahuasca brew. About a week ago I was planning on doing so but I ended up overdosing on the syrian rue, so I never ended up taking the acacia confusa brew. I can't stress it enough to make sure your syrian rue dose is 3-4 grams. This time I ended up making a syrian rue tea- a teaspoon of the seeds, which apparently is roughly 3 grams, with lemon juice and ginger. My acacia confusa rootbark brew was done with lemon juice, the acacia root bark, and egg white.
I ended up going to a local trailhead at night where I knew no one would be around. I consumed the syrian rue- easy going, I believe the ginger in the brew helped a lot. I waited about 20-25 minutes, saw a few javelinas passing by (desert pigs), and consumed one gulp of the acacia brew.
Almost instantly nausea settled in from the acacia. I decided to go further up the trail into the mountains and further away from the trailhead. I stashed my bike and started to walk up the trail. The nausea became more and more unbearable so I decided to make myself throw up. After the first purge the DMT experience settled in.
After the first purge the DMT experience settled in.
Strong vibrations were piercing through my body and the surrounding desert became distorted. The onset of the experience was rising fast and I wanted to get off the trail just in case a random person decided to take a night walk and wouldn't stumble upon me tripping my face off. I got off as far as I could manage, but still unsettled about my locale. I laid down and there under the saguaro titans and mesquite trees is where I had a choice. I felt like I was being operated on, little vibration acupuncture needles were defragging my brain, it was too much, I was not comfortable being where I was at and I asked it to stop. There the strong experience began to fade away and I purged a few more times. I got myself together, found my cached bike, and rode back home, whole within myself and a feeling of gratitude. As the experience faded I felt a sense of deep relief, of great healing, and of forgiveness.
I am very curious to surrender to the experience completely but next time I will voyage in my house instead of a public preserve where I don't have to worry about being stumbled upon by a hiker or by rattlesnakes- crossing humans definitely worried me more though. I feel blessed and I am happy to continue to experiment with the healing powers that DMT, or ayahuasca have to offer. Namaste, may all beings be happy!
