Seen Death
Salvia divinorum
Citation:   Pennyscan. "Seen Death: An Experience with Salvia divinorum (exp69523)". Apr 18, 2008.

1 bowl smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)
Age 48, 130 pounds
In bedroom, wife sat opposite
Calm & prepared
No prior drugs - except light MJ use

Small bowl
5x extract
One small but deep breath.
Slight burning.
Resist the urge to cough.
Heat quickly fades.

10 seconds later - outer time stops.
But thoughts keep on going.

My inner dialog seems so lonely.
Now the outer world has stopped.

A steam roller is crushing my insides fast.
Or is it a kind of super gravity force?

I really did not expect this intensity.
Not these physical effects.

Now I know where we go when we die.

Sweat falls everywhere out of me at once.
I'm cold.
It feels like I've been shot
But before the pain hits you.

You know you're going to die.
You're resigned to it.
So this is where we go
But I can't quite see where I am.

It's all behind me.
I'm not there yet.
It's just a short visit.
No one is there to lead me in.
Just me alone and waiting.

So now I'm being sent back to reality.
I try to look back to see where I'd been.

I notice my hands are soaking wet
All of me is.

Definitely trying this again...
