50 mg IV Ketamine (liquid)

I slowly injected the half-milliliter into my vein, not really expecting much. The next thing I remember is a very intense white light surrounding me. I felt as if God were speaking to me, but not in words, and not in the same way I've experienced a divine communication on LSD. This is strange because my concept of God was that of the Judeo-Christian persuasion, which is not my belief. I am more of a Buddhist. But in my experience it was the Judeo-Christian God. I felt myself falling, I remember thinking I was dead and that my girlfriend's grandfather had found my body in the bathroom. I then remember wondering if I were falling to hell, not necessarily feeling frightened though. This too is odd as I do not believe in hell.

Eventually I was able to see thru my eyes again and saw blood on my hand, not remembering taking the needle out or cleaning myself off or anything. I remember feeling as if the experience was lasting much longer while I was in it, and as soon as it was over I knew that only about an hour had passed. It was incredible and I will definitely experiment further via this method.
