I read a lot about Salvia D and thought and had my doubts like everyone else. For one, it cost only $35 for 4 oz, which comes out to a quart size baggie, or 112 grams.

So, I decided to try it anyway, crumbling two leaves, packing the bowl of a bong, and taking the hits near my bed, so I could just lay back should anything happen. I knew that I had to take 3 hits or so. On the second hit, I started to feel the way you feel before you passout, and then, suddenly, I 'saw' these transparent people, who smiled and said, 'Welcome!' It was as if my life was a dream that I was waking up from, and everyone around me seemed familiar. I was no longer me, but another person altogether. There were many people there, and I remember a motherly figure, and many children. It seemed more real than what I now call 'my life.'

And just as soon, I was looking around, slowly recognizing my room, remembering who I was, and then thinking, 'what or who was that???'

Surprised that regular leaf did anything, I tried again.

This time, from a normal pipe, and on the second pull, a boy was beside me saying, 'did you get enough yet?' A woman was standing, ironing, and saying, 'sweetie, help him lay down.' And as I laid down, I stared at the ceiling, and saw 100s of realities - all with very real worlds, and real people, woven like a basket, each seeming to be waiting to come into existence, like the way cars alternate at a 4 way stop.

And again, I returned to normal, amazed, questioning what the real reality was, who those people are, if they were real.
It seems like I am poking mu head into the spiritual world, and suddenly, I see my spirit guides.

Every time after that, I have been 'welcomed back' by similar entities. Sometimes, I am 5 with my 2 brothers and mother, living in my childhood home. Sometimes, I'm in a dreamworld. And sometimes, I am simply coexisting with 100s of others worlds together.

But I have learned that there is teaching in the plant, and the plant should be respected. If I approach it is humility and reverence, it will teach me. If I approach like a jackass, it's going to bitch-slap me.

If I am searching for answers, want to commune with God, it's a good plant to help me find answers, even if that is by asking me questions.
