Me and a friend sat down one night in front of some docks. We figured a waterfront trip would be nice. This was my second time trying salvia. I thought the first time was intense, but I really had no idea what intense was. According to the report of my friend I am going to relate the experience in reality and in my salvia world.
Reality - I took 3 large hits of the 15x and held them each in for about 15 seconds. After this I had no connection with reality or myself and I had no physical control of myself as well (danger). I had no recollection of my self as if I had never existed. I did not know what my body was doing but it was acting out the actions I was performing in my other reality world. According to my friend I started laughing hysterically and then stood up(I was not controlling my self). Then I went running down the street and into some bushes (I have no recollection of this). I was screaming about the Salvia people trying to pull me into thier world and I also screamed his name. When he came to my 'rescue' I grabbed onto his shirt and started shaking him.
Salvia Reality - The first thing that I became conscious of after entering my altered state was the fact that I was in a purple funhouse with different color stripes on the wall. I had no recollection of who I was or that I had smoked salvia. There were normal looking people walking around inside and they were trying to drag me away by my feet and arms. I was filled with terror. I fought hysterically for my life trying to get away. I saw an opening in the roof of the house and outside was reality. That was when I remembered that I had smoked salvia. I jumped up and tried to fit through this hole to try and get back into reality but the people were pulling me back into the funhouse. Then I thought the world was ending. I made it back to reality but it felt like I was in a one-dimensional curtain that looked like the docks we were at. This curtain was being pulled through a black void along with several other curtains. It felt like the real world was being 'unzipped' into curtains. At this point I forgot about being under the influence of salvia and I really thought that the world was ending. I remember thinking to myself, 'there is nothing I can do I might as well just go along with it'.
Even as I came back to reality, I could still see and hear the salvia people pulling at my legs trying to pull me back in. But I knew the effects were wearing off and I was going to be ok. The effects quickly subsided leaving an after glow similiar to the beginings of a long psychedelic trip.
