We arrived at 'Mary Jane's' perhaps an hour into my Ecstasy trip, and bought our Salvia. Our timing was rewarded with noon's cannon-blast, an unexpected bonus. It was a very foggy May 10th, and we climbed the steep hill of the Halifax Citadel to smoke our 'Sally D.' on the steep, grassy slope.
I took it first, now totally rolling, and a .25 gram bowl was packed. I inhaled half of it as quickly as I could from a small water-bong (I suppose we may have made a scene), and held it until I felt different.
What I felt was very, very subtle at first. It began simply as a sense of inevitability. This will sound insane, I know, but... the closest soberly-conceivable analog to this would be a point in time making me aware of itself. This was followed by an incredible sense of confusion; I strained, yet couldn't put my thoughts together. Meanwhile, my cohorts each took a similar dose.
This is when I began to feel the strongest effects; it was a windy day, and the structure of the space the wind was occupying changed. It was moving toward me still, but it was made of an infinitely deep expanse of two-dimensional plates, like slides of an overhead projector. As each layer of wind intersected me in turn, I felt my original 3-D (or 4-D for those familiar with spacetime) universe become somehow metaphysically alien. I realized with elation that I was experiencing the fabled 'layering' effect Salvia has become well-known for. I could no longer feel my Ecstasy, but this is the only sensation I can remember from perhaps the next five or ten minutes.
I could no longer feel my Ecstasy, but this is the only sensation I can remember from perhaps the next five or ten minutes.
I needed to go somewhere; and concentrating on this urge, I felt attracted to an albeit unfamiliar route back down the hill, and, upon reflection, somewhere behind me and around the Citadel - exactly the route we spontaneously and simultaneously began to take moments later. This led us to a bus stop, at the appropriate time. During the walk, perhaps ten minutes, I realized I was experiencing a feeling I termed to the others as 'spiritual satiation'. I don't remember how I felt - or how it was possible, as now it seems almost contradictory - but I believe I was perceiving the concept of my life from a perspective _apart_ from it. I remember claiming veraciously to know what it felt like to not be born - perhaps not even conceived yet, although this has left me completely, and now I am stumped and anxious to re-learn this again and again.
Also notable is that during this time, I began to use words and patterns of speech I had never, ever used or taken on, and very fluently; I was promptly told I sounded like a nurse. This is perhaps 25 minutes after inhalation, and I began to feel my ecstasy high return, to pleasant surprise. I am anxious to try it without other drugs.
