There was no emotional content, no reassurance, no ecstasy. Nor any terror or danger. Nor was it the void. This was a place beyond either love or indifference [...] I was being pulled and drawn through patterned fractals. They were visible in an endless curving procession, leading into infinity – identical patterns, as though the same “layer” was strobing. I knew that this had been happening for ever and would go on happening for ever. I knew that I had been moving through it for all eternity, and always will.  [...]

One long inhalation of smoke and I was elsewhere. There was no preamble, no build up, no increasing or changing awareness of shifting into a different state of consciousness. I was simply somewhere other than I had been before. It is possibly somewhere I have always been. I remember putting the pipe down or perhaps it was taken out of my hand, but that’s all. I don’t remember the twisting away from everyday reality. I don’t remember going. I only remember being there [...]

There are infinite, or at least numerous, numinous parallel realities, each with it's own "you" with your same name and social security number and life. Salvia rips you from your temporal configuration and lets you revisit the timeless place beyond. The state of pre- and post-mortality. When we return from this Salvia realm, which lasts about ten minutes in normal time, we have not necessarily returned to the same world that we left, but one of the other nearly limitless possibilities [...]

I got an effect with the first hit [...] I felt I was instantly gripped by a very powerful force. Quite frightening as it was so powerful and sudden. A DVD was on ('Broadway Danny Rose') and although I tried not to pay any attention to it I ended up genuinely believing that I was in the film and started to worry about the fate of the protagonist [...]

I was falling/being pulled (felt the pull along my back, which I later read is where the soul leaves the body) away from my body into another reality. Just as real as the one I had left. I was falling into pure darkness and the reality of my room was a slit of light getting smaller and smaller as I fell, until there was nothing but darkness. It was almost like I'd been eaten by a giant, and I was looking from the darkness of this giant's mouth out into my room, before being swallowed. Then I was in these dense, dark woods, with this expressionless wooden-puppet thing just staring blankly at me. And there were two cheeky-looking elf-like things, one either side, pulling me towards the wooden guy.' [...]

I heard 2 sounds simultaneously: a deep note, descending into inaudible, and a rising , zipping (or unzipping) sound, not a single note but as a series, as a zip would sound. I looked up and to the right, turning my head as I did so, and something happened. There was the feeling you get when the roller coaster has paused just before doing something stomach-churning, coupled with a sense of 'uh-oh'. I said aloud 'WOW!' [...]

...it was as though my vision was like the pages of a flipchart viewed from the side, and being turned over in rapid succession. This was accompanied by the feeling of being turned over as each new image came into view. Just after that I had my first encounter with an 'entity'. It seemed benign enough but the shock of all this suddenly terrified me. I jumped up and must have got half way down two flights of stairs before I realised what I was doing. I think I also shouted 'Help!’ [...]

I knew that I was in my lounge in my flat with the curtains and door closed, but I desperately was trying to remember what was outside the door and window, but I just drew a blank, as far as I could tell, the only things that existed was me, my lounge and its contents. I had moved to "ground level" somewhere (I live in an upstairs flat) but it was if this "ground level" was in some infinite space that couldn't actually have a "ground", a bit like trying to find the end of the universe and sit down on it!  [...]

I was no longer in my room, well obviously I was physically, but mentally I was in another reality altogether. I was on what seemed to be a train station platform, and there was people all around me. I seemed to be lost, looking for someone, my mum possibly [...]

I felt that over my right shoulder there was a veneer between this reality and another that I had never experienced before. I was being pulled to the right, where a centrifuge would dissolve me into this other reality. There were animate beings there, laughing, exuberant beings who clearly understood something that I did not. I was terrified [...]

I was in a strange cartoon land on a train. - The tracks were moving with the train and they were hitting into the sides of the tunnel walls. [...] Then the land and the track turned over upon themselves - the tracks now were coming towards me and were hitting into my arms as they went past - [...] the land began to turn on itself and close together with me to be squashed by it. As each track went past chinking my arm, the land grew closer - I had to get away and not be squashed. [...] I tried to move my body up the train/traintrack [...] - I somehow flipped upside down completely and landed in a void that was being left on the other side of the land closing in upon itself [...]

Everything seemed to turn into the most vivid dream, encompassing everything in me, and everything physically around me [...a] holographic memory matrix. [...] And every time I tried to shape it, as if it were a lucid dream, something seemed to pull me back down, down to the left, as if it didn't want me to do what I wanted  [...]

I ... felt an enormous buzzing sensation ... It became a powerful tugging, which went off into one direction, and my whole body was then "extruded" by this tugging, and I stretched out into infinity, almost into a singularity, into a horizontally-spinning vortex which was swirling away into the depths. I then saw the cells of the plant leaf, as if under a microscope... which then became a series of fractal patterns of every colour in the visible spectrum. I also saw some colours I've never seen before, but of course that makes no sense whatsoever....!  I then found myself sitting in a desert, under a starlit sky, with a warm wind blowing around me. There was a female present, but I don't know who she was [...]

It felt like my body vibrated in different directions all at once. Though I thought I might be able to lift up, due to bodily lightness ... It was like the pipe was speaking Spanish! However it was not very coherent and when I tried to talk back, I couldn't get a decent Spanish word out [...]

 "...to my left and right I saw and felt what can only be described as individual transparent partitions separating different choices of my possible realities. Here I think the message was that although we pass through time making choices that give us a series of experiences, (the linear procession that we call life) there are in fact infinite possibilities occurring concurrently [...]

"...there were now two of me I plainly sensed: the old me, in the old dimension, sluggish, weighted down, unenergetic, oddly populated with my relationship with my wife; and a new, pure existence in the new dimension - but - the new dimension was unpopulated, I was alone in it and profoundly lonely. I sensed that I could be sucked irrevocably into this new existence where I would be entirely alone, extremely powerful, and capable of anything [...]

"... you see the world through the hollows in your hearts. that space makes all of you different from each other. there's a lost piece in your hearts and you fit the world in that space. all the pain, joys, sadness and smiles come from that space. you are not different because you have different qualities. you all have the same material. you are different because you all have the lost piece in different points of your hearts. when the lost piece is found, when the hollow is filled you will be in one being. separated eyes will come together in one eye." that's what my salvia guide said [...]

"...probably the strangest experience of my life so far. My brains associations got extremely 'crossed' . Like one thought would be connected to a completely irrelevant one. At this point I didn’t know where I was, who I was, or what I had taken and didn’t really give it much thought at the time. I would look at an object and random thoughts would come flying at me. Then I could barely distinguish different objects, just shapes that the straight edges of the table legs made with the floor. Like an L shape. This L shape brought images of the icon of a local TV station. Why this happened I can only explain as a total state of confusion. Totally random thought rushed past me, but apart from the very strange TV icon, I couldn’t catch any of them in my memory [...]

"...Awesome. I was instantly bi-located – sat with my eyes still open, but at the same time somewhere else altogether. ...I knew in that moment that I have been doing this forever. My awareness popped back into a place that I had left just a moment before – the last time I smoked Salvia. ...I have gone from this world of time here, and jumped through the curtain into that world there. And in that world there absolutely no time whatsoever has elapsed since the earliest visit I can remember [...]>

"...I felt a strong sensation of being pulled to the left, before seeing the plant branching out inside me.  Then it gently showed me a lot of very early childhood memories. Beautiful experience and I certainly intend to experiment further with it. Sounds ludicrous before you actually try the stuff but you do feel the plant is communicating with you.
