I have tried DMT quite a few times. Including Ayahuasca. However this particular time was unique. I like smoking it in a small group with attention to set and setting.
I like smoking it in a small group with attention to set and setting.
A conversation about it before the experience is very important to create a good and safe environment as well as to show respect to the substance.
In this occasion, we were three. Generally while one is gone the other two wait quietly for the person to come back, the person then describes the experience which is recorded to a voice recorder in case the person decides to hear it later on. I had a nice bag of Changa, DMT crystal mixed with flower petals to make it easier to burn through the pipe. We dimmed the lights from the house leaving just enough light to recognise the place. A big sarong is on the wall with a well designed Mandala right in front of us. A thin mattress, a pillow and a blanket are ready to be used. We fill the pipe with changa, push it down a bit and light up the lighter. Burn it as we start smoking as much smoke as we can take in trying to burn all the content in the pipe in one go.
The first person to go was me. As soon as I couldnít take any more smoke in, a sense of heaviness swept my body, all I wanted to do was to lie down which I did on the mattress with the comfortable pillow, pulled the blanket over me and just relaxed.
Incredible psychedelic patterns started to form, there is no form, nothing is well defined, instead everything is morphing into something new, colours and shapes are constantly changing and this is the only describable characteristic of the visuals. My body is completely relaxed and I donít feel I am in it.
From the fractals and psychedelia I can see a figure, it has a head arms and legs. It knows that I am present and looks at me. His face is not human, his is wearing a gas mask and his looks reminds me of me the movie predator but his is wearing a headphone too. The Alien starts moving his arm in the same frequency as the movement of the background shapes as if he was dancing to it. He stares at me coming closer to me but moves backwards again when he moves his arms and points to the side as in telling me to look to the right. The background shapes merge into a gradient of yellow, orange and red. I look to the right but I notice I am floating and I donít have a body. I see a book that is turning pages on its own. I hover over the book as the pages turn to stop at a particular page where I could see a city. I hovered over the page flying through it as if the book is a portal or a gate to the city.
The city is purely golden and it looked like Manhattan or a place with lots of high-rises. There is no details or texture, everything is defined by the contrast in the gradient between yellow, orange and red. I can see people walking and their body resemble the souls from the movie cocoon from the 90s. I notice that as soon as I am in the city hundreds of beings acknowledge my presence there but continue walking or doing what they were doing, I can see an entire civilisation as I fly higher above the buildings. This knowing comes in telling me that it is Zion, a city in the future. I get emotional and I decide to open my eyes. Patterns and shapes merge with shapes in the room as if they were in the same place, the mandala is moving and morphing its design. I close my eyes and the patterns are stronger so I stay there just watching its beauty, when I open my eyes the room becomes clearer, I try to move my body and the patterns start to dissolve, I can notice the details of the room which are quickly getting more defined. I try to remain with my eyes shut but things are not as clear, physical reality is stronger. I sit up and decide to share my experience with my friends.
I have had other experiences where I saw lots of psychedelic patterns but I had never being welcomed or hosted by another being in hyperspace. It took me some time to stop thinking about it. I wanted to go back there and I tried other times but no one showed up, just the psychedelia which is beautiful to watch.
This was on of the most profound experiences in my life, I am confident there is another realm of existence where beings are living a non-biological life. It has been nearly 3 years since this experience but if I close my eyes I can still see images from that place and the Alien that welcomed me just as much I can recall any other memory.
