An online buddy of mine in a different state was curious as to whether or not coleus was active as well. So I brought some coleus home and let it grow out for a week or two. It has such bright foliage with bright reds and pinks with yellow and green edges.
So one night, an hour before bed, I picked one huge leaf. The leaf was about 6 inches long and 4-5 inches wide with lots of dark red on it. At first, I chewed a very small piece off and swallowed it. I wanted to be cautious, for if this plant was poisonous or harmful, I didnít want to ingest a large amount and screw myself over.
I let 20 minutes pass and finish the rest of the leaf. Nothing happened for about 40 minutes (t+1hr). So I decided to get to bed, hoping that I would get some effect even if its only through dream state.
That night I had the most vivid dream of my life, which is a lot to say, being is that I lucid dream very often at will, and those dreams were not as real as this one was.
I dreamed that it was the future, at least 2089, but I was the age I am now. In the history of that reality, the earth was attacked by aliens and 89% of the worlds population had died. Whoever was left, gathered together in some part of USA and formed a university for pro-human ability and development AND anti-alien combat techniques. I went to this school and had several buddies.
The next day after I woke, I didnít feel sick or anything negative. Just highly refreshed from my mental vacation that night. .
I told my online buddy that I had a powerful dream, but I never said what it entailed. And last week, he ate some coleus and had almost the exact same dream. The future, a university, something terrible in the recent past....
I donít know if these dreams were derived from our expectations, but Iím open to the fact that entheogens can have qualities beyond my comprehension.
