A Sleeping Mountain Man
Salvia Divinorum

1 hit smoked Salvia divinorum (leaves)
I took a one hitter filled with plain leaf salvia and I originally thought it wouldn't be enough to actually break through but I was wrong. I felt that same comforting familiarity feeling I always get on salvia. It puts me in a good mindset for the trip so that's a plus. As a preface I smoked this with a backpack on sitting down against a tree. I closed my eyes and it started with a gentle pulling sensation to the left. I was then viewing my body from above and I looked like a person sleeping on a tree. I then proceeded to see my surroundings vanish from around me instantly.

My body then disappeared and I saw pure consciousness flowing through my body from right to left. This flowing consciousness was the cause of the leftward pulling force. I could feel this consciousness flowing around and through the straps of my backpack. The straps seemed to turn completely rigid as the consciousness was flowing around it. Then as this consciousness was flowing around me, I appeared on a type of shelf in a corner. Then from that shelf a room formed around it. It seemed to be some sort of museum or store where I was an attraction. I then looked back on myself and I was now a sleeping mountain man with a big beard, a large coat, a large backpack and very thick pants with heavily insulated boots.

There was snow on me in this depiction. There were some people there looking up at me and talking about me. As I was there it's as if I were an inanimate object. I was just this sculpture of a sleeping mountain man. For some reason everybody was looking at me and talking about me like I was very important or something very interesting. I really couldn't comprehend why people would be so interested in a depiction of a sleeping mountain man, but they were. I then opened my eyes and I felt as if I were connected to the forest floor. Not exactly my body but the backpack seemed as stuck as a tree, and as a consequence I couldn't move. I just talked to my friend until I felt like I could get up. I'm still very confused by this trip but I'm sure I will find out it's meaning soon enough.
