Tonight I fell before the good graces of Lady Salvia, and I feel truly blessed to have received her gracious hospitality. I encountered her one night before, though in a very inappropriate setting, and I felt that I missed much of her insights.

Tonight however, was much different, as I was working with the very potent 10x extract. I was with a special friend who would also partake; we were both sitting comfortably in his darkened room. I loaded my glass bowl (using it for the first time as it was reserved for her) with a very small amount of material, possibly at most a tenth of a gram. I placed the blue flame of my torch light to the alluring dark-green salvia which immediately turned flame red, and then inhaled deeply. Holding this for about 30 seconds I realized there was more left in the bowl, so I took another hit. As I inhaled the cool, agreeable smoke, I was immediately pulled to the floor by a strange indiscernible force. I felt as if I had been sucked out of my body for a few seconds, into a space of complete nothingness. This absolute dissociation soon passed and I gained awareness of my body again.

With my eyes closed, an almost infinite 2-dimensional plane of kaleidoscoping dream visions danced at a dizzying pace. Some of the images were downright funny, though I canít remember why. Perhaps the lady was in especially good spirits, as this state of awareness felt very comfortable, even when I was completely dissociated from my body and could feel her ďpullĒ. The visions were similar to the those induced by a strong psilocybin experience, only they were playing out on a more subconscious level, lacking the intense emotional connections of the mushroom peak. They were organic and familiar images and memories, materializing out of a swirl of geometric iridescence. This was the dreamtime. Hovering in the spatial infinity of my own consciousness, connected to the entire universe.

As my bodily awareness became more apparent, I felt this ďspaceĒ moving against my skin, causing a rain of tingling pins and needles. I could see a tunnel moving out before me, and then some thought triggered what seemed like a drop of water hitting the surface of a puddle, and the ripples undulated throughout my body. This would occur again later in the experience. I remember getting the feeling that the lady was trying to show me something specific, which I obviously must have missed. I could almost hear her voice: ďWhy donít you see where Iím leading you.Ē I remember, almost laughingly replying, ďItís all so beautiful, so amusing, but itís too fast.Ē

Thatís when I saw her hands, like two blooming rose buds, grab each frame and slow the ongoing collage of consciousness down to a more observable rate. By then however it was too late, and the physical realm called me slowly back. I remember sharing these events with my friend, who had embarked as well, and he described having an equally positive and intriguing experience.

I can only say that the lady is an exotic and powerful plant spirit. The space we (and so many others!) accessed shows real promise of serious exploratory potential. I think it may be equally important as the DMTís. Unlike the tryptamines, however, her Sageness prefers the route of dreams, not just sensory experience. I guess that is the best I can explain it. But donít think she isnít direct; the weirdness alone will astound most people. Somehow I perceived the chaotic array of (normally) subconscious imagery as humorous and insightful, though I can see where with the wrong set and setting someone could really become frightened. Especially by the strange gravitational tactile sensations she evokes. I remember having a very brief pornographic moment as well, and somehow I think, even in my disembodied state, I blushed. Now howís that for weird?
