5-MeO-DMT Experiences and Testimonials / Onyx Flux
« on: May 01, 2017, 02:31:05 AM »
As a composite of impressions taken from (at the time of writing) a dozen or so experiences with vapourised synthetic 5-MeO-DMT, my testimonial takes the form of a poem in what I am drawn to as a more fluid way of articulating such ineffability.

Onyx Flux

Silver fractal shards pour into my sight,
spiralled out and piping in - a sudden liquid light.
Yielding to an emptiness, a space at once replete,
with boundless black expanse, infinite and complete.

Unfolding diamond-laden vista, quartz and crystalline, 
each-in-all and all-in-each, endless myriad facets shine.
In charged electric ether-sphere, a brilliant lightening white,
brings from depths within, an arcane obsidian night.

Sound vibrates this space in time and into being creates,
a vastly liminal zone; a pure awareness state.
An omnipresent force propels, the surge to rise and grow,
with pulsing, phasing current in eternal ebb and flow.

A vibratory purge, a harmonising clean,
Orgasmic oscillation of frequency unseen. 
In somatic symmetry of tension-borne release,
this fluid state of flux, reflects an inner peace.

Translucent beads of potency in molten motion course,
through quicksilver rivulets to the heart of source.
As Spirit moves in everything, everywhere and everywhen,
Its purity of perfection arrives at home again.

This body, I, a vessel see - the breath of life is me,
In gratitude of energy and re-membering to be.
From alpha to omega flows, eternal animation's shape,
Always here, always now- essence of is-ness agape.

As onyx mindscape dissolution, finds the centre core,
of true, eternal, love divine in soulgasm evermore.
Open - open - ever open... to receive with bliss; serenity,
in stillness grace abounds, wholly-holy integrity.

Hi Madrus.

Plant-based sources of 5-meO is a fascinating field and as you indicated, perhaps not one of the more-prevalent 5-MeO products in the global scheme of this medicine's consumption, although in remote areas where species like Virola and Anadenanthera are prevalent and have a traditional history of use, such sources may be more common.

I do however have some optimism that new sources may come to light as intrepid ethnobotanists and amateur explorers seek out alternative natural (and perhaps sustainable) sources.

Welcome Shy Violet,

Thank you for this sharing and for your presence.

As you will see there is a section titled 'Ethics & ecology' in which we hope to cultivate a productive dialogue regarding the health and longevity of the Bufo Alvarius toad and to raise awareness of the issues facing this extraordinary species amongst the shamanic medicine community and consumers of toad medicine. If you feel so inclined it would be great to seed this section with a post bringing to light some of the many challenges presented by supply and demand around this medicine, the ethics of conservation, changing climatic conditions and other environmental pressures.
