I have tried DMT a handful of times, but it has only WORKED once.
Dimethyltryptamineis the chemical in our brain that allows us to dream, I believe. It has been manufactured into an herb or spice that makes you trip your nabs off for 10 to 15 minutes. It only lasts this long because it is so intense. This was my experience of it when it worked for me.
I went to my friends house, and he set everything up for me. He helped me inhale it properly and allowed me to lie on his bed with headphones in my ears with appropriate DMT music.
I held it in as a laid back on his bed, and it swam through my entire body before my head hit the pillow. I finally exhaled and I went into a vortex. I was surrounded by a sea of every color with the background of the bed room.
I was hardly able to move, and not in control of my movements. At one point I was staring at my thumbs that looked like my soul, and twiddling my tongue with my fingers. I was unaware that I was grabbing my tongue for awhile, and when I did, I looked down at the rest of my body and thought "HOLY SHIT, I HAVE A BODY!!!" I had forgotten about it... I thought I was just a tongue
My friend hung out in his bathroom brushing his teeth and such, leaving me alone, and poked his head out on occasion to check on me and see my mouth and eyes agape.
Then his cat hopped up onto the table next to me. The cat could definitely tell that I was on a journey and sat there with me. I was mesmerized by it's color changing coats of green and purple as I admired and touched it's fur. That was a truly amazing and comforting moment, I felt my spirit connect with it's and her kitty kindness radiated and resonated.
As the music descended with the effects of the DMT time kind of slowed down, the intense colors went away and all that was left was the bedroom. Every piece of furniture or poster on the wall had it's own energy that pulsated to my breath. It was breathing with me.
It was the most intense psychedelic experience I've ever had. I've tried others and they do not compare visually. People's ideas of "Tripping" is seeing things that aren't there and melting shit or whatever. But DMT is the only one that truly takes you on a roller coaster of subconscious imagination. Your mind takes off and the world warps for those 5 to 10 minutes.
This sounds really hippy ish and whatever but it really was astounding, and something I will never forget.
