I have tried salvia dozens of times, each time trying my best to understand what is happening in my mind and my body; I can say from experience that understanding what is happening allows the affects to become more profound and enlightening. My first salvia experience was completely unexpected, I am sure most people who have tried it can relate to that feeling. I was unprepared for the sudden journey my mind was about to embark on, shifting into a unique dimension of the universe.
For my first experience, I was with 4 friends and my stepbrother Mason. We went to a park that had all kinds of trails and we found a nice grassy spot under a tree to smoke. Keep in mind that my first experience had more hallucinogenic perception effects, the time frame in which my mind was in another place was not vivid or perceived consciously. So, I packed a bowl of salvia 20x and took a hit. The term “unprepared” doesn’t even come close to the feeling of my experience. The effects kicked in fast, roughly around 15 seconds, maybe even less. I remember Mason throwing a lighter at me and asking if I was alright, probably because at that point my eyes widened and I was entering a trance, feeling the shift from physical reality into an extreme level of connectedness to the things around me. Within the first minute my mind was in another place so I had no perceptions of physical reality, the first couple minutes was blank but I learned later that Mason had picked me up and tried to get me to walk, which was not a good idea. I had no control over my body and when using salvia, it is not a good idea to do anything but sit back, relax and stay calm. Well they struggled to keep me up and continued to bring me back to the car. After about 5 minutes my visionary perception came back, I was being held up by Mason, who was to my left; to my right was my friend recording me with his phone. Another not so good idea for a salvia experience, being recorded affects your experience greatly. I felt Mason, not on a physical level but on a mental level. I could feel his energy which was a unique feeling but when I looked to my right and saw the phone, my mind got stuck on repeat. Everything started playing over and over. I saw the orange trees, the cement path under my feet, to my far right in my peripheral vision was a muddy stream and a log. There was roughly a frame of 1 second that I saw all those things and within my mind I saw that 1 second scene repeating probably hundreds of times and when the repetition started a voice was with it, repeating. After the scene repeated for however long it did, I started to think again and the effects were still happening so my thoughts were not completely clear. I felt like the entire city of Merced had come to watch me walk around the park over and over and I was some kind of entertainment for everyone, the feeling wasn’t the most pleasant but everything was bright and had a positive vibe to it. By the time we got back to the car, the effects were wearing off and I felt myself coming back into physical reality. Mason was freaking out trying to explain what I was doing but my mind still had to come back completely. He was in a hurry to get me home so we ended up leaving 2 friends at the park, I got home and passed right out. The experience would have been much better if Mason and my friends had more control over the situation and did not freak out and try to get me up and moving. Later, when I thought back to the experience, it was very enlightening. An experience so different than everyday life, a shift in consciousness and expansion of mind.
My first experience wasn’t the best it could have been, but I did not let that fear prevent me from trying it again. I did more research and strived to understand what was happening and it led me to trying it again and having a much better experience. Once I realized that relaxing was the key to having a good experience, I started using salvia a lot and over time I learned more about the effects both mentally and physically.
I have had many more experiences. The first experience is always be most memorable in my opinion. My experiences were much different after the first. Now my experiences are much more dimensional based, when I use salvia now I can feel things, not just perceive their existence but actually feel their energy, in trance and out of trance. Now, I feel the physiological and psychological changes. I feel my emotions completely stable, the energy in my body balanced and my heart and mind harmonized. When I come out of trance and I am back in physical reality, I have no negative feelings such as worry, anxiety, frustration, Etc. but I feel everything positive, I feel connected to everything around me and in turn I do not emit any negative emotions that would destabilize that harmony and connectedness.
