It was my first time using Salva Divinorum and I was very excited. I was using it as a shamanistic tool to further expand my awarness. But I was aware of its extreme potency. I loaded up my homemade pipe with unfortified Oaxacan leaf. I held my lighter close to it and took a long, deep hit. I was suprised at how harsh the smoke was. I held it for 20 seconds and then lit another bowl and took another long hit. I had no idea what was about to happen.
I layed down and closed my eyes. Visuals were apparent but visuals is not what would be the highlight of my experience. I opened my eyes. I stared deep into my ceiling and felt a feeling of nothingness. I had the sudden feeling that I was dying. I was drifting far away from my life, friends and family. All memories began to dissapear. I tried to fight it, but when I did, I felt a hand grab at my ankle and force me down. Tingles went up and down my whole body and I lay there, dying and falling into a hole of Oblivion.
I came out of it after approximately 90 seconds. I was still feeling empty and very weak after what happened. I walked shakily into my bathroom and put water on my face.. For 30 minutes, I walked around my house silent and thinking. This experience was so intense for me and I now know that Lady Salvia deserves much respect. She is quite a teacher.
