Hola, my name is Salvia Divinorum. I am an innocent looking member of the mint family from Mexico, where I have been used as a shamanic tool by the Mazatec Indians in Oaxaca for hundreds of years. A powerful hallucinogenic sage, my name literally translates as “Sage of the Seers”. Other names people call me by are Diviner’s Sage, Magic Mint, Sally-D or Salvia. My leaves contain the extremely potent dissociative psychedelic compound Salvinorin A. In recent years I have become very popular around the world, bringing people in touch with cosmic consciousness. Many people smoke my dried leaves, but I do not like this heat. Chew me for 30-40 minutes or extract me into liquid form, so that my magical powers can be absorbed sublingually through the mucus membranes in your mouth.
I AM THE HIGH PRIESTESS, THE GUARDIAN OF THE UNCONSCIOUS. I CONNECT YOU TO YOUR HIGHER SELF, YOUR INTUITION AND GUIDE YOU TO FIND YOUR PURPOSE AND UNIQUE PATH IN LIFE.
I allow you to open the thin veil of unawareness which is all that separates you from your inner landscape. When entering the realms of my plant consciousness, you will meet my mysterious female spirit. I will ask you to recall the vastness of your potential and to remember the unlimited possibilities you hold within yourself.
Depending on how much of my magic you ingest, my gift can vary from a subtle state of more awareness to a full-blown out of body experience. At higher doses I will transform your human being into a small bodiless molecule of consciousness before you lose awareness of all existence. I will allow you to feel the connection between the atoms that connect everything and let you enter a space within space that transcends the three dimensional universe. In an un-earth-like yet very real journey into space, you may encounter otherworldly beings, adventure though galaxies or visit other places or times. I like to temporarily dissolve all of your memories, experiences, insights and emotions – everything you hold on to and replace it with the experience of oneness. While you are falling to your death through millions of layers of reality, you will remember where you came from, you will remember who you were before your incarnation. Whenever you are ready, I will either terrify you or delight you by revealing to you, the great cosmic joke – the truth behind everything:
YOU ARE WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR AND LIFE IS A HILARIOUS GAME OF HIDE AND SEEK.
I am a powerful spirit and I demand respect. As I mentioned, I do not like to be smoked. And I also do not like to be used as an escape mechanism for your life problems. I am not a party drug. Use me with intention and openness to see what needs to be seen and I can be your greatest teacher. Use me to get high for the sake of getting high and I will throw you right into the source of your troubles. I will take you out of your comfort zone and force you to explore novel territory. If you resist leaving your body and do not trust me, I will make you face your resistance and the origin of your fears. While the oddest beliefs will fly out of your collapsing core, I will test you on letting go of your rooted configuration. If you are not prepared for this intensity, this can turn into a highly unpleasant experience with your reality breaking apart, a sensory overload driven to the absolute maximum. This is how I come to have the reputation of being malignant. I am not malignant, but I do have firm boundaries that I do want you to respect.
However, if you let go and allow my spirit to do what needs to be done, I will show you that you are The Creator. Our journey into a crystalline network of pulsing energies can feel like you’ve been gone for 3000 years, we can spend lifetimes together. When you respect me, I will protect the connection to your body and softly return you afterwards.
If it suits your expansion, I will allow you to experience the full life of another individual, a plant, an object or allow you to experience the silence and patience found in the existence of solid matter or the paint on the wall.
I WILL CONNECT YOU TO THE BEAUTY OF WAITING AND ALLOWING. I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS THROUGH STILLNESS THAT GIVES DESIRE A CHANCE TO FLOWER WITHIN THE FULLNESS OF TIME.
I am a deep reaching key to the door of the universe but also being your friend and wise guide. I will show you your true nature and polarity, so that you can find your way back there again – this time on your own.
Thanks for getting to know me. Let’s Transcend Time!
CHARACTERISITICS OF SALVIA DIVINORUM
How do you take me?
I am most commonly smoked, often with a pipe. But I do not like to be smoked, this often leads to scary trips. You will enjoy me best when I am chewed or used as a tincture.
Chew me or keep the tincture in your mouth for approximately 40 minutes. The first effects arise after 15 minutes or so and gradually develop to their peak approximately 30 minutes after ingestion. My Divine High lasts 30 minutes to an hour, and then gradually diminishes over the following additional 30 to 60 minutes.
If you are still going to smoke me, despite my advice, use a different pipe than you will be using for other smokeable substances, as I tend to linger. This aspect can be attributed to the fact that Salvinorin A, the psychoactive compound present in my leaves, is the strongest naturally occurring psychedelic known to man.
My leaves purchased by traditional means come in a series of levels, beginning at 5x (the weakest) and normally topping out at 20x. Depending on the result desired, half a gram of natural dried leaves is considered a good mid-level dose – simply adjust based on the level you’ve got on hand. For example, if your product is 10x, .05 of a gram, it will get you to the mid-level standard. However, products and doses will vary depending on my different strains and amount of extract enhancement.
Known for hitting hard and hitting fast, my onset when smoked begins as quickly as fifteen seconds after ingestion, typically peaking after three minutes. The descending period is a bit longer, normally lasting between five minutes and a half hour.
SAFETY & RESPECT FOR SALVIA DIVINORUM
What you need to know!
It is important to understand that I am not a party drug. I am not “fun” in the way that alcohol or Cannabis can be. Use me in a safe setting, a comfortable, private environment with an entheogenic guide or shaman. I can evoke fun and playfulness within you, but this will be through committing to your honoring your shadows, or a byproduct of the work we do together.
My leaf is physically quite safe and gentle on your body. Studies have shown that rodents exposed to three times the highest known human dose (6400mcg) experienced no severe toxic effects. No one has ever died from an overdose.
At low doses or when using the chewing method, salvia causes tingling sensations and heightened awareness. However, at mid-levels and above, salvia’s effects can often be rather overwhelming and require supervision.
Overly high dosages of my magic will still result in leaving this reality, loss of movement capabilities, and other extreme symptoms.
I don’t like to be combined with most of the other drugs!
