Entrancing, Really

A well-written report

Substances: Salvia divinorum


[A friend] and I recently shared two full bowls of crushed Salvia leaves from plants we had grown ourselves, and our responses were very interesting. From his report it sounds as though Llan experienced almost nothing other than some energetic body sensations, while I was quite fully thrown into a space comparable to peaking on five grams of cubensis - a rather fine example of her variability. It was different from the mushrooms though - i did all the bowl packing and so hadn't even hardly closed my eyes until we'd finished the second round. then wow! I was surprised enough by how full blown it was already to slowly exclaim outloud, "Oh my..." But it was darker than cubensis, visually not mood-wise, more sultry and translucent. There was very clearly a kind of moon light which illumined the whole experience, which i have heard described before. I had the impression of being in a lunar emerald labyrinth that animately self-crystallized before my eyes. There were not full blown entities, but it was definitely creatural and organically movemented. It was silent, a visit to the ice palace, like watching winter pass in fast forward, a self-transforming orchestra of icicle geometries. Very very pleasant to the eyes - entrancing really. It made for a half hour of brilliant elation and then began to recede, melt away, like the gossamer layers of glaze on a fine oil painting diffusing one by one, until i was left with only the unrefined vague gestalts which all too often inhabit my inner world.

So, I definitely want to affirm that hyperspace is really there in the Diviner's Mint, if only somewhat less boisterous and more lunar. Keep looking, the night journey under its luminescent gaze is more than sublime...
