I already came to the point where I doubted my ability to receive a hallucinogenic effect out of salvia, because I smoked it four or five times before today and nothing happened, I smoked less today compared to the last time I smoked before.

To describe my state of mind before I took the salvia:
1.) I realized that I had spent my life until today without doing anything useful.
2.) I had quit the relationship with my girlfriend. Ugly day... Mindbomb...

So I decided to seek 'shelter' and spent my day with my best friend. We know each other and we're doing our 'drug testing' together. The place couldn't be better, good music in the background ( Plaid ), really comfortable leather couch, some drink in range, the perfect setting, besides my real devastated mind, filled with bad emotions. I really wanted to feel bad, but salvia just sucked me out of my body... Before the first salvia hit I had already smoked a good hit peace [Editor's note: don't know to what substance 'peace' refers] and was already a little numb in the stomach. After I finished complaining about nothing, my pal decided to do me some good and prepared a 0.1g hit of 10xSalvia. I smoked it almost completely with one turn and laid back after it. Another hit got prepared and I smoked it also, just feeling the first tickles under my knees. After the second hit I had to lay back must faster, more falling back than moving normally. The best way to describe what I felt was that I got sucked out of my body. Like a large air vent behind my back or something.

I mentioned that it would be better to lie on the floor to enjoy the flight. I spared some words to my friend that I will tell him later. But I hadn't much time to think about this funny feeling because I came back converted to some kind of lightwaves. After being sucked out I had the feeling that I was separating or bending in salto-fashion and transformed further into a flowing wheel of orange-green light pulsing to the beat of the music. That's next to what I felt most from all possible non-verbal expression, after all my english skills are lousy too. I almost visualize music in my head in geometrical figure and patterns, coloured somewhat between orange and green, some neon-like colour. The figures and patterns are flowing and transforming according to the flow of the music and the beat. On peace I can visualize this in my mind pretty easy, but with the salvia I became a geometrical figure myself, pulsing to the beat.

I never had any halluzinogenic experience before and if this is it, I will do it until I die of old age. After the first two or the three minutes floating in some wave-shape through a dark mindscape glowing in my own light, I realized that I was in a trip and I got the feeling that I am able to control the trip. I recognized that I was opening my eyes intuitively I forced them closed. And it work, I was incredibly happy, Soon I started mentioning that the music will end after the song has ended and I began complaining silently, but the trip got me back. The next two minutes I was fighting with myself not to let reality back in my thoughts, because I don't wanted to loose this floating feeling. I worked quite good, but after this two minutes reality came back bit by bit. It took some time for me to get the first words out and I fully recognized that I had an awesome experience. A deep feeling of luckyness and satisfaction filled my head and the only thing I could do was laugh and smilr while trying to explain to my pal how great this trip was. Soon after this I decided to let other people know what happened to me.
