"Reality Ceasing" - By Anonymous

I consider myself a Salvia Veteran, I've used it quite a few times, and when I thought about which experience I wanted to write about, only one really came to mind. The time the Universe ended.

I was planning this trip for all week. I had had a hellish time at work, and I never had enough time at home once I got there. It felt like by the time I had wound down, had dinner and just started to have some time to myself, it was time to go to sleep and start the process all over again. I needed time that was for me and only me, to leave it all behind for just a few minutes.

I couldn't wait for the weekend to come so that I could break out the extract. I used a standardized 10x extract. I perfer it because it's a lot stronger than the 5x to me and gives me mind-blowing trips. 5x is good for wanting something light, but for me, 10x is the only way to fly.

I packed up a big bowl of the extract and lit it up with a minitorch (newbies: use flameless lighters/minitorches to light your salvia, you get wayyyyy better effects). I took 4 huge tokes and held each one in until my face turned blue. Almost immediately I felt it washing over me, it was like a cold chill that sorta "melted" over me like an ice cube in your hand, and everything started to go dark.

When I got my bearings again, I was in a void, it was black, everything was blackness. Nothing existed. Nothing. My mind was racing to make sense of it. I just knew that this was the end of everything. I was the only thing there. I was all of existence looking out into the void that was an absence of me.

I saw a faint "sheet" of light in the distance and headed towards it, I was almost disappointed that something else was there. The light began getting dimmer and dimmer as I headed towards it, until there was nothing there anymore. I stopped dead in my tracks.

I stayed put and began contemplating my situation. I remember thinking that if this was nothing, and I was everything, why am I here? Without me, it is nothing, but as I clearly saw around me, this was the end of everything, an infinite void.

I continued thinking deeply about my predicament and started feeling warm, the void starting getting brighter, I don't remember what happened next, but I "snapped out of it" sitting on my living room floor. The "great journey" through the void following that light was a whopping distance of 6 feet, I had got out of my chair, I must have taken 3 steps and sat down.

I felt incredibly peaceful afterward, as if something had been resolved. One thing's for sure, I won't ever forget the time I was the universe, it was a heck of an ego boost! :)
