I had stopped taking drugs for almost a year when I decided to try Salvia. Many friends of mine told me they had an anxious or disturbed experience with it, but still I went for it.
I went in the woods with a friend whom I trust, not still sure I was making the right decision... But then I thought: This is the worst way to try a new drug... I need to relax. So we sat beneath the tress and my friend tried first. Had an experience of the past, in his childhood, but with his mind of today.
Then it was my turn. I smoked twice. Nothing.
Right at the moment I thought I should smoke again, I moved my hand to reach the pipe, and suddenly my vision was slowing down, seeing only a few image per second.
Right then, I felt something pulling me out of my body. Then all the trees around flooded on me, creating a giant tube scratching my arms, and I was pulled up inside it. At one point I arrived in a classroom, with many people in it. Strangely, they seemed to have no faces, even if they had one...
(During all the trip, I hear things but it is like telepathy, not voices...All the time, I communicate with everyone there, using only the mind.)
Then they all told me that I have achieved my task, I passed the course, the test...that I could stay here with them now, that it is over for me. But I said that I'd rather go back to earth, down there, because there are so much things to see, people to meet. Then I went out of the room, and I was in a gigantic corridor, again like a giant tube. I was looking to the left, then on the right, and at each end, there was the open space, with billions of stars shining on a stark blue sky.
Then I started going down again the scratching tube of branches which unfolded when I got back to the ground.
The thoughts I had right then were: THE KEY TO EVERYTHING IS COMMUNICATION. I ran to my best friend a few minutes from there, I just hugged him and told him how much he meant to me. How much I cared.
Overall, my experience was wonderful. When I was up there, I felt I was at the right place at the right time. I felt everything was in place.
I am generally a very anxious and often depressed person, but this experience really helped me solve something about talking. Like it broke a barrier. It wasn't magical or instant or something, but still, I know it changed something...
