The trip begins about 30 minutes ago. It occurs in my house, mostly in the upstairs bathroom.
T:00 10:00PM I am in my bathroom (since it has a fume hood that sucks up smoke) and I have just taken about ten bong reps, and I'm feeling pretty blazed out right about now. So I decide to smoke some salvia that I had bought about a month ago. There was about 150mgs of 20x extract left in the 1g vile. I pour about half of the contents into the bong and lite up prepared for a really wild experience. As I begin to draw the hit I realize that it is going to be way too big, so I quickly cover up the bong and seal a massive amount of smoke inside. The hit that I got actually made me cough (I have never coughed on salvia before). It takes me two more large hits to clear the whole bong, and I am beginning to trip hard.
At this point I feel gravity pulling me down so hard that I have to bend my knees. As I struggle to stay up I lean against the bathroom mirror. Staring into the mirror I begin to hear chatter in the background. I tried to listen to what was being said but it was just random syllables being uttered very quickly. Somehow I could understand certain parts of this cryptic language by analyzing the tone the syllables are uttered in. This sensation is beyond any explanation I can think of.
I try to write down whatever random words or sentences just come to my mind, but I can't for the life of me write anything that makes sense. Here is what I wrote: Undefinable methods, each okay, something about sliding down stairs, wish I had music here, unreal vibrations, crazy flashes
As I wrote I felt an energy being sucked out of my hand and onto the paper, through the pen. It was an incredibly intense rush and, as I can tell, only a preview of what is to come. I quickly get up and stare at myself in the mirror. My arms become wavy and obscured. They look like fiery ropes blowing in the wind. Pretty soon my whole body begins to sway as the imaginary wind drives me to my left, and my image becomes obscured as it drifts away in the gust.

Now I completely loose myself. My mind begins opening up (that is the best way I can describe this feeling) and I feel as if I am part of some kind of larger reality. I keep thinking my whole world is going to split open at the seams and be taken over by this larger reality. As this is happening I am still getting constant cryptic messages. As I listen to them I feel absorbed deeper and deeper into the salvia realm, and further and further from the reality I once knew. I began to literally imagine my reality falling from existence. This was scary at first but I knew I had to calmly accept it or I would freak out.
I stop focusing on the cryptic messages for a second and the trip seems to regress slightly. I felt an overwhelming feeling in my mouth. This is very hard to explain, but I feel as if trip itself was coming out of my mouth and throat and into my brain. I look at myself in the mirror and watch my ever changing appearance and the changing world around me. At first I was half human half lizard with green scales and spikes on my back, then I was a wavy stick figure.
I decide to try to listen to cryptic language again to go deeper into the salvia realm. Immediately the mirror shows me a beach, and I am whisked over the ocean at high speed (kind of like a documentary film helicopter shot over the ocean). My physical body begins to disappear, as the ocean becomes a desert, then just as quickly a castle, then a sky with sparse clouds (this shit is no joke).
I begin to get dragged too deeply in and stop listening to the ambient noise of my mind. This seems to be an effective way to guide my trip at my own pace, because salvia can be very overwhelming. At this point I feel together enough to take just one more small hit from the bong. As I inhaled the smoke I began to get white flashes. It is as if reality is being shown to me in frames. I suddenly get massive tracers and began to be sucked into the salvia realm once again. I quickly walk downstairs to watch some TV. I only remember still images from the walk, I was just suddenly downstairs on the couch
10:15 I close my eyes and relax, the messages are still coming on strong and still guiding this intense trip. I feel the need to say certain things out loud. I assume they are my understanding of what was being said. The TV is waving in the wind, and I can barely tell what is going on the show. But certain things I really understand on a deep level and I begin to laugh hysterically everytime a joke is uttered (which is like every 10 seconds). Over the next fifteen minutes or so I get fairly back to baseline (which is still pretty baked).
