Positive Salvia Experience

Many months had passed since my first ever salvia trip and now I loaded .015 g of 10x Salvia leaf extract once again. The scene was set. The candle was lit and Enya was serenading in the background. I got myself a glass of milk and cookies for comfort during my trip. I had a few bowls of cannabis a few hours before to relax me.

“No better time than now,” I thought as I picked up the loaded glass pipe and took one very large toke, holding it for quite some time. This was super easy as it is always a very smooth smoke. Upon exhalation, I could feel something creeping quickly on, so I took one more giant hit and exhaled into a different dimension. I was standing or floating above myself, very scared. It is not natural to feel this way. With cannabis my body usually floats when my mind does, but with salvia, it is a complete mind and body separation. I could talk very clearly where I was, while staying virtually silent outwardly. I told myself that this is the place I had asked to go, and I had arrived here on my own intentions. This was nothing to fear, but something to enjoy. I ensured myself that the intensity of the whole thing was temporary and that I should cherish my time here.

What once was Enya playing in the background had now become my stream of life. The music was everything around me. I could see it, feel it, hear it, smell it, and even more importantly, it was the air that I breathed.

I remember thinking about how bogus it was to be in a different place and how it felt so comfortable to be there. I was in utter fear actually, while at the same time I was very calm. I wanted to be there, it would just take a second to warm up. Occasionally I would come back to my body before heading out once again on a new journey. While back in my body I would play games with myself. I would move things around me, like the pipe or lighter, and try to remember moving them whenever I arrived “home” again. I would change positions on the couch and try to remember moving.

As it began to wear off, I found that I had complete control over whether or not I was in my body or in my head somewhere. I played around with this for awhile. Then I picked up the pipe and smoked the bowl out. This gave me just enough to go back once more, only this time returning with a friendly and purposed mind set. I went back because I missed it already. In fact, it felt like I was somewhere else for so long, I didn’t want to decide where home really was. While there, I realized that the salvia was doing nothing to body or actions like alcohol would do, instead, it was like a play time for my conscious. The thing we cannot reproduce. The breath of life itself. Who we are was what I was seeing. I could see life itself and I could understand that we are only in this body for a short period of time. There is a different dimension out there awaiting us. Not a heaven or hell, but simply a different dimension for life to continue. I really felt that I was within a time warp multi dimensional sacred and secret area. It was like I had pulled a Bill and Ted, but had permission to be where I ended up. I felt very welcome wherever I went, though I never saw anyone else. My voice was very loud as it gleefully chatted with those I knew were listening yet silently spoke. I can remember taking a few drinks of milk and eating a few cookies at some point, but I also remember that it took lots of focus to do so.

Eventually I found myself slumped comfortably into the arm of the couch, closing my eyes and enjoying my dreams while still awake. It was a lot of fun to be dreaming while awake and it brightened my inner soul to do so. What I could see was unlike anything on earth. It was beautiful perfection yet lacked color and texture that is describable in words. The intensity of the time travel it took to get here was well worth bearing. I had entered Eden. I can remember being kind of bummed out because I knew that I was experiencing many things that I couldn’t take back with me. It was a happy place, a place of peace and laughter. Things were so nice there, but I knew that I had to return home shortly. If ever I have understood the motto of the hippie, it was now. As the salvia wore off it felt as if I needed to say my goodbyes this time since the bowl was empty. My portal into the other dimension was squeezing shut. I could hear the music again, this time as music and not a breathable fluid. When I looked around the room my head actually moved and I had power of my hands and feet once again. A peaceful assurance of tranquility was tightly wrapped around my inner being. My ship had landed safely home from a surreal journey of life altering events that when called upon in my mind always bring a smile. But for the most part, what happens in the world of Salvia, stays in the world of Salvia.

I stood clear mindedly and blew out the candle that had burned for just one hour while it lit the path into another view of the same world in which I am now standing in. I shook my head and smiled, closed the baggie of sage, and headed to bed.
