It was my first time experience with Salvia. A friend of mine asked me if I would like to try it and I said 'Sure, what's it like?'. He explained that it was rather trippy and that Shamans used it for spiritual journeys. I was excited and nervous. We were in my bedroom, and it was very dim. He suggested that we light a candle and turn off the lights for the best setting. I sat on my bed while he sat on a small chair beside me. He handed me the pipe and told me to hold in the hit for as long as possible and if I could do another hit after that, then go for it (he was not smoking, he was just watching to make sure everything went ok for my first time).
I took one large hit and started to feel funny... I went for the second hit. I couldn't hold the second as long because suddenly everything was HILARIOUS! I was laughing and laughing non stop, everything had turned into Loony Tunes. I could see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck... The whole crew! I remember looking over at my friend and trying to explain to him, but laughing so hard it was impossible. This is when everything changed from hilarious to AMAZING. Suddenly, there were multi-colored rainbow fractals pouring out of my chest towards the ceiling... Swirling and swirling out of my body. I kept saying 'THE FRACTALS, THE FRACTALS!!' and trying to grab at them. This next part is the most out of this world, life changing thing that ever happened to me.
As I was grasping for the fractals, I felt as if a large force was pushing me backwards to lay down on my bed, and at the same time I could feel my soul releasing from my body like the fractals were pulling it out of me. I wasn't scared, I was overjoyed!
I wasn't scared, I was overjoyed!
I then realized that I was out of my body and I could see myself laying on the bed with my eyes closed (My friend also said that I laid back on my bed and closed my eyes and didn't move for the next... I don't know 5-10mins). At that moment I shot through time and space and found myself flying over a vast landscape of sort of like Jungle/Tropical views. I was looking around in amazement, when I saw Dinosaurs. I could FEEL the rumble all around as brontosaurus were stomping through the vast world. I KNEW I had gone back in time... I wasn't just seeing it... I was THERE.
I KNEW I had gone back in time... I wasn't just seeing it... I was THERE.
Then, as soon as I was taking this all in, I zoomed to somewhere far away. I flew past planets and through the universe, where I stopped was this insanely beautiful place. There was grass the color of mint and everything smelled like lilacs. There were tall white Grecian columns in two straight rows, with a long white tiled path running down the middle. The sky was ever-changing from blue/green, to pink to purple. Swirling, so magnificent. There was a slight breeze blowing trees (all the plants there were the minty color, and all the trees I saw here like weeping willows) in an almost rhythmic way. Then a woman appeared to my right, more beautiful than anyone I have ever seen before. She was sort of a blueish tan skin with pure white hair. She had the most piercing blue eyes I have ever seen. Her hair was very long and flowing in the rhythmic breeze. She was also wearing a long white, sort of Grecian gown. She looked at me with the most serene smile and I guess she telepathed to me (she didn't move her mouth at all), 'I'm so glad you finally made it...' Just as I tried to comprehend what she meant, because I certainly didn't know where I was, I was zooming again.
I couldn't tell you if this was backward or forward in time, but suddenly I was witnessing what I can explain as a Native American ritual dance. They were dancing around a fire with the full headdress chanting and dancing. I could smell the smoke and almost FEEL the spiritual vibration. The next thing I know is feeling my soul fly back into my body and opening my eyes. Everything felt SO REAL when I was out of body that the 'real world' didn't seem real at all. I sat up and explained this whole thing to my friend.... Everything in the 'trip' was SO vivid, but the after effects are foggy. Apparently I got up and went to tell my roommate that 'I don't know what is real anymore!'
My friend that was my watcher, said that he's never seen or heard such an amazing experience. I haven't had another one like it. I think it's about time.
