2 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (leaves)


We were studying consciousness in my psychology class and how dreams and drugs (especially hallucinogens) can enhance your perspective of the world. I was interested in trying salvia to experience the way that it would shift my perspective. I was not disappointed at all.

The living room was a comfortable 80 degrees and well lit by the light behind me. My friend packed about half a bowl of the leaves in an ice bong. I took the bong and sat on the right side of the couch. I tried to relax and get comfortable among the pillows because one of my roommates warned about the mystical 'push' that salvia can do to your body. I took two big hits to smoke the leaves. I held both of them in my lungs as long as I could and then as I exhaled during the second hit I felt my body get heavy. I felt my head kinda float as my vision became cloudy like walking through a heavy rainstorm. Then I could feel as if my body were being pushed from my left side by a giant 'fence' of chicken wire that seemed to mold to the contours of my body and all over my face.

It was almost as if I were caught in a dream, but I was awake and my eyes were open. I started to piece together everything in the room. It was like my brain was trying to make sense of everything my senses could pick up. My friends were talking and I saw visions of them as other people I knew in my life. I saw my two best guy friends molded into cosmic replicas of my dad and brother. Then my friend's girlfriend was in the room and she molded into a replica of my mom. It was like I had been transported back to when I was a young boy with my family. Then I 'sensed' answers to questions that I pondered, like how relationships work (with friends, loved ones, and myself) and I began to piece together the puzzle of many questions in my head. My perspective then shifted into a more consciously awake feeling as I started to wake up from my dream-like state. My vision started to blur into thousands of tiny geometric shapes like the Legos I used to play with as a kid or a video game puzzle like Tetris or a similar game. Then I kinda 'fell' back into reality as if I had jumped off of small cliff and landed back on the couch. This all occured probably within 2-3 minutes.

I felt very tired and groggy, so I decided to lay down on my bed and play some music. I put on some Pink Floyd and some Incubus. I kinda drifted off in a state of meditation and I felt as if the music penetrated my soul. The words and melodies floated through my head as if I were watching the words appear before me. After about an hour of this I returned to baseline.
