« Last post by JJ on March 04, 2020, 09:59:18 AM »
Hello, everybody.


I am new to the forum, and I hope we can share a lot of experiences and learn from each other.


I am currently introducing myself to 5-meo-DMT, and my intention is to write in this forum about where it wants to take me.


I am a 24 year old in his spiritual journey, hoping that this substance will help me discover new insightfull and trascendental paths. Togehter with meditation and contemplation practices, my goal is to understand being, undesrtand existence.


So, to start with, I will be very glad to read about insights and realisations you have had in your trips, most mind blowing and life-transforming ones.


I am really excited to know about you enlightening experiences.


Have a nice day <3

5-MeO-DMT Experiences and Testimonials / I did it!!!!
« Last post by Enaltamar2 on March 04, 2020, 08:59:00 AM »
Well, I did it!!!!!!!!!! Just came back from a wonderful retreat yesterday and the experience was all I hoped for and waaaaay more.
Was terrified on-and-off for weeks leading into it, but, after meeting the group and being in the beautiful retreat space - outdoors, perfect weather, surrounded by gorgeous rocky mountains, had much more manageable anxiety.



We had a first ceremony on the third day of the retreat, where I vaped 8 mg and two days later 3 consecutive takes with about half that dose ea. round.


The first ceremony: brief(?) total “white-out” initially, soon followed by a sense of complete dissolution, bliss, exhilaration, incredibly powerful energy, followed by being conscious of being in that magical, divine space (my favorite part maybe), and of having survived the experience. Ongoing feeling of surrender and letting go, breathing into it, basking into it, loving it.  Gratitude to the facilitators, to the other retreat participants (“family”) for making it possible to feel comfortable and trusting enough to completely surrender. Opening eyes and seeing blue sky, laughing with joy. Sitting up and looking at circle of people surrounding me with awe, love, and more gratitude. Leaving circle to lie on the grass nearby with warm sunshine falling on me. Deep, deep release. Perfection.


Second ceremony, two days later, 3 separate takes. On each of the 3 rounds we take the medicine two people at a time until we are all experiencing it at once (we’re 8 participants), then a brief brake, then we all go again.
With first round of smaller dose I immediately completely release again, possibly even further that with the first big dose. The waking up period even more relaxing, nice not to feel like others are waiting for their turn. Savoring for as long as I please. Even stronger loving feeling towards other members, since it’s more of a communal ceremony. Second round, after initial bliss, doing some deep personal work, with very clear insights on the “shadow side”, then, a third round of self-forgiveness and resolution to do better from now on.


Apart from the ceremonies, we had at least one group integration meeting a day, with very helpful breathing exercises, conversations and theoretical framing of what we were experiencing, and, of course, “de-briefing” of each person’s experiences. Wonderful container for taking this medicine, with super trained, loving, knowledgeable facilitators. Would be happy to mention names but not sure if that’s something I’m allowed to do in this forum.

Introductions/Newbies / HAD TO RE-REGISTER
« Last post by Enaltamar2 on March 04, 2020, 08:55:23 AM »
Hi, My previous name was Enaltamar and I am now Enaltamar2. I had trouble logging in with what I though was my id and password and I wasn’t getting the email to re-do the password. Probably the reason is that I was too successful in trying to keep things private.
Anyway, I have had my first 5-MeO experience, which I’ll post soon, so it’s not surprising that I come back with a different version of myself. Also, I am not very clear on whether we are allowed to recommend providers/retreats. It would be a shame if we couldn’t pass on info that would help fellow seekers find safe places to have this experience. Waiting for clarification on that before naming names.

Any salt form of 5meo will burn at a lower temperature than freebase. If you’re wanting to vaporize it, you would need to determine the melting or boiling point of the substance (5-MeO-DMT oxalate) and try to make sure you were not burning the material (heating it beyond the melting/boiling point).

You could also convert it to freebase form and try vaporizing that, but I have less knowledge about chemistry and can’t answer that very well. There is a thread on this forum where we discuss conversion, give it a search and you should be able to find it :)

To me personally it sounds like you may have beer given way too much.
What makes me say this? Because so much of the experience you had no idea what was going on and you are left feeling confused and disoriented. This experience does not need to be that way at all. In fact, done properly, 5-MeO-DMT can often leave people in a very relaxed, peaceful state.

The screaming/primal reactions can be for so many reasons we can’t say anything for sure. Perhaps it is related to a previous experience that you had in which you were unable to express terror, perhaps it was your reaction to the experience yourself. We don’t actually know and it’s very difficult to determine without knowing who you are or having had contact with you personally during the experience.

Most simple practice for integration? Journaling or talking with a therapist that knows about psychedelics. Psychedelic.Support is a great resource for finding people like that.

Welcome!

Oftentimes people say that nothing could ever prepare someone for this kind of experience, but hopefully the information on this forum can be helpful for you in making your decision at the right time.

The goal of this forum is to discuss experiences, provide support to those who may be having difficulty integrating these experiences, and provide harm reduction for those planning on having an experience with 5-MeO-DMT.

Welcome!

Hello SE,
And sorry for the late reply. How are these symptoms now? Have they improved?

I’m thinking we can probably merge this with the Reactivations thread (https://forums.5meodmt.org/index.php?topic=50940.0) so that it’s all in one place for folks.

That being said, what you’re describing is something that seems to happen quite often with people vaporizing larger doses of 5-MeO-DMT. It seems the slow but irregular trend towards improvement is a commonality in all of these reactivations reports and that the best things are to be able to do some kind of physical activity like dancing or yoga, use of supplements such as valerian or kava for sleep, and have time where you are not suppressing the effects and are able to work with a therapist who can support you through this process. Ideally a trauma-informed somatic therapist.

Please do keep us updated, as this information is invaluable to others who may be going through the same thing.

Wishing you all the best,
HV
