Salvia Divinorum Scotland ~ Feedback Received
When I had my first experience of Salvia I had previously smoked a little
cannabis that day. My mood was one of slight apprehension but I felt more
excited than fearful. I followed the advise of others who went before me, I
had a sitter and a nice comfortable setting.
I first smoked one bowl of our water pipe, unsure of my personal dosage
level. I felt my awareness shift and sharpen slightly, I sat back and waited
for the great tide that I had read so much about to come and wash me away, but
nothing. I sat up and asked my sitter to fill another bowl of the water pipe
for me; I could feel the tickle but nothing more.
I took the second lungful and felt my consciousness/awareness shift
further. I quickly lay back across the couch. I became aware of my interlocked
hands on my chest (I later read that Salvia causes the muscles to contract,
especially those in the hands). I became aware of edges, and how they are not
really hard and straight as they look. In my minds eye I saw a close up of the
particles rocking back and fore in arcs around each other.
Green became the dominant colour in the mental pictures and fractals. I
became aware that my head and feet, my body felt like it stretched down and up
forever. I felt like a plant, a Salvia plant. I was an internode, two leaves
on a stem that stretched to infinity. She showed me a gleeful and almost
mischievous side to her nature.
The sensation was pleasant and exciting, and although I was the plant I was
still aware of where I was in this world. I quickly came round to myself
again, although time and gravity took a little while to sort themselves out
into their usual patterns.
