Arthur, James D - 09 The experience of salvia ingestion is not a pleasant one
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Salvia Divinorum – J D Arthur
The experience of salvia ingestion is not necessarily a pleasant one. Many people have tried it once or twice and sworn off. In all probability, salvia will never be a popular pursuit. The disorienting nature of the trance is not the type of experience that people generally find entertaining……
The fact that much salvia experimentation occurs among younger people is disturbing. While salvia can be a valuable adjunct to sincere analysis of one’s own perceptual relationship to the world at large, it also can be a source of disorienting delusion for those unequipped, due to the poverty of their life experience, to approach it with the proper balance of respect and scepticism. It should therefore, never be used by those under the age of 18.
