Quest for Her
Salvia divinorum (60x extract)
Citation:   Daniel. "Quest for Her: An Experience with Salvia divinorum (60x extract) (exp99315)". Dec 25, 2017.

0.5 g smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)
I have extensive experience in meditation for many years and about 100 LSD trips, mostly during the seventies. I've been planning an Ayahuasca trip in 2014 to Peru and have been reading and studying a lot about psychedelics by Stanislav Grof and listening to Terence McKenna on YouTube. They both talk a lot about doing high dosages of these drugs and having transpersonal or transhuman encounters, experiences and communions.

When I found out Sal D. was legal in my state I decided to cop a gram of 60X online and do the whole thing. I'm a first timer and haven't done any acid in about 30 years. When I arrived I had mixed feelings, knowing its effects are unpredictable. I usually loved the effects of acid but had frightening trips each of the handful of times I ever tried shrooms. I have an image of the Goddess which is an African mask of a beautiful woman's face. I set this up in front of me with a candle and shut all the other lights out. I decided against playing the shamanic drumming tape. My wife had gone to work.

I could barely fit the whole gram into the bowl but I managed to do that. Then with a high-wind lighter I attempted to toke the entire bowl but only got about half of it smoked by time my lungs were full. I remember trying to set the pipe down but my arm not extending. Then my visual reality became chopped up like a conveyor belt moving slowly to the left before going over the edge into nothingness and death. I had to move to the right to get away from that, I was panicking and this is why some people get up and move around on it I believe. My mother was going to come home (she's been dead 12 years). I don't know how to describe the state of consciousness except alien. I didn't recognize myself at first, this seemed to go on for a long time. I think I astral projected to my kitchen I can't believe I walked that far so intoxicated but I remember making it there to escape going over the edge.

When I came out of it I was still on the couch but the light was turned on and the faucet was running. The bowl was on the carpet and still half of the drug was spilled about. If this was a meeting with the Goddess I think I'll choose another one.
