Recently my friend and I have been absolutely obsessed with more of a holistic approach to recreational uses of natural products that will help us gain a little cohesiveness in our dreaming attention. At the time we were just testing different combinations of calea, kratom, amanita muscaria, sinchuichi, and blue lily, into teas 'enjoyed' once every several nights before bed.
I had tried to use as little as Calea (approx. 1 Tsp) as possible to still achieve a state of lucidity while not affecting the taste, in combination with a locally picked and dried Amanita Cap (approx. 1 Gram) and Kratom Red Vein Leaf and Stem (approx. 2 Gram); I was hoping to have another exciting adventure with Kratom and its wonderfully tied-down bodily effects but instead found myself in the profound wake of a heavy zone that lasted for only several minutes. (I never actually consumed any of the plant material, just the juices that were released in boiling water, and maybe some of the little sand that seeped through, that was contained in a cheesecloth.) This was my first time feeling the effects of Amanita Muscaria.
(11:00 P.M.) It was fairly dark outside, cars whizzing by every five minutes or so, we had just finished having a herbal smoke of a small combination of the three herbs, nothing more than a gram in total weight, while we had consumed our tea slowly; my friend still to this day tries to pursue an amanita experience, but has still yet to have one; swishing it in our mouths combined with the smoke, hoping to have our mucous membranes absorb as much 'goodness' as possible.
(11:05 P.M.) The onset from the Kratom was quite quick, quicker than any other time than before. I was playing Pokemon Red on my Gameboy Color (yes, it is 2008), while watching Seinfeld on T.V. (still 2008). I had felt as if I had an overwhelming feeling similar to MDMA, which made me burst out of my seat, into the kitchen towards my friend who was happily awaiting what had overcome me, just to find nothing had happened to him, sending me back towards my nostalgia fest, playing Pokemon with the music up loud in combination with the talking coming from the television I was suddenly starting to feel a little out of place.
(11:10 P.M.)-(11:25 P.M) My mind was absolutely more focused on the Gameboy at the time, with the music blaring, I started to have 'Whole' vision tracers, not just seeing my hand move in strobes, it was my whole view shaking wildly and re-conforming in place as my head had made its course. I had noticed that my assemblance point was shifting to weird places like seeing out of my stomach per say, but stomach level view, or having a mild out of body experience like almost as if my body was numb, and my energy was trying to feel itself, almost like slight sniper vision. That was when I decided to play some more Pokemon, I was absolutely determined to destroy this game once again and never play it again. I started to see these weird blue dots everywhere when my face had left the screen to indulge in Seinfeld, and started to hear some weird wave like noises. These weren't sounds like ocean waves, it was, if you ever played Zelda: A Link To The Past for Super Nintendo, then you would understand that these waves sounded like the exact sound your 'Mirror' makes when you switch times, wheo wheo wah wah (we-o, we-o, wahah, wahah) like sound over and over for almost five minutes in a slight echo tune.
I, then, almost depleted of any of all energy, my brain had left to produce while trying to fight the OEV's and CEV's, with a combination of after-imagery from the gameboy and television, and the sight of just small things, like my hands and face in a mirror where oddly shapen, sometimes growing big or small, almost like in Alice and Wonderland, but progressive not rapid, fought the powerful anchor induced from the Kratom and lunged myself into bed, played a little of GTA 4 till my mind was ultimately destroyed of all reason and then went to sleep.
(12:15 P.M.) (a good 12 hours later) I awoke from my horrifying dream of extreme death that was most likely imposed from all the destruction I had reaped before shut eye, the dream was so real, but the death wasn't the real extravagant part about this dreaming session, but the fact that I realized that my dreams are conjoined, as I walked through the woods in my lucid dream, the background would change almost every 10-15 feet of walking space, and the structure of the dream would remain the same, while any characters would just leave in any modern day techniques, (driving, running away, or by going through a doorway), although there wasn't any intricate detail worth mentioning, besides the fact that there was snow everywhere and the uncanny ability to enter different gates in the mind simply through the passing of a doorway.
Overall, my experience was quite short, besides the relevant nightmare, I was perfectly fit, and felt like the usual if not more intent on finding a more effective, but my depth perception is a little out of whack, for example, a 600ml Pepsi bottle looks about the same as a 1L Pepsi bottle from a distance away, but composure was easily gained. The potential for dreaming is quite acceptable.
