The Spirit Molecule: Unlock Your Mind
Many psychedelic explorers embark on their adventures in search for the very limits of consciousness, and when they get there they try and transcend past them, past whatever is defined as conventional. We experiment with psychedelics to boost our limits, to get a better glimpse above the window sills of our souls. There is a cosmic attendance within ourselves that we can vaguely sense when we clear our minds, still our awareness, and submerge into oneness with our environment. This twinge of Spirit living inside of us is perhaps, some form of communal passageway between our consciousness and the thinking universe. While faint, its awareness has potential to grow and be actualized as the objective to our subjection.
While a “Trip” can be most satisfying in, and of itself, it’s the expansion in thought and the consciousness we discover behind minute details of life that enlighten us to more worthy beliefs and a better understanding of the significance of our own pondering.
The Spirit molecule is also known as DMT, (N,N -Dimethyltryptamine). It’s a molecule found widespread within the plant kingdom and can be traced inside most mammals as well. Yes, DMT is even found in our own human bodies. It acts as a neurotransmitter similar to Serotonin. Neither Science or philosophy has discovered why this Spirit molecule is available in our world. When discussing its significance we must not reject supernatural or spiritual claims, for it’s transcendental power even trumps scientific fact.
DMT can be ingested or smoked as a psychedelic drug, and is known to have sublime effects on consciousness that would make an acid trip seem like a daily toke up. DMT users literally leave their body! You exit your bodily existence and find your consciousness floating inside of some alien realm, filled with magnificent colors, sounds, and other reflections of disembodied consciousness . You become a part of the intergalactic information network, a universe of formless vibration.
And this whole journey happens in an instant.
“I twisted into the other dimension, the DMT space of wonderment. I left from my body into a dimensional time-warp, and in this constant dimension shift I saw thousands of entities bursting out, welcoming me and sharing in the beauty of life, a song of glory. My emotions exploded. I felt mentally sober and aware throughout, despite the worm-hole like journey. I perceived this world from radical perspective shifts, and yelled ‘Oh my god, so good, so beautiful!’ Twisting, churning; the world burst into multi-colored energy balls and entities. They formed a ball of blue stonish grey, and grabbed at me but as friends, as the same as me.
Eventually they slipped away, and I was left with a new type of creature, that had a mostly black face but with colorful features. I felt pokes and tugs but it was not at all bad; they seemed as if they were me, and I knew the goodness of everything; goodness was this space. The music was happy music, and enhanced the experience dramatically.” – Anonymous
DMT was dubbed the Spirit molecule because if there is indeed a spirit harboring inside, above, or below us, perhaps it is DMT that aids in its existence.
Below is a ‘professional’ breakdown of a DMT trip, written by Gracie and Zarkov and pulled from the bottomless vaults of Erowid.
Notes on a visual DMT trip:
0 – 20 seconds
a scratchiness in the lungs
20 – 30 seconds
a buzzing starts in the ears, rising in tone and volume to an incredible intensity. Its like cellophane being ripped apart (or the fabric of the universe being torn asunder). Your body will vibrate in sympathy with this sound, and you will notice a sharp blood pressure rise. You may feel like you are deeply under water. Wearing a unitard or leotard and tights helps to minimize this sensation. Your visual field will also vibrate in resonance to the sound and will finally be completely obscured by the visions.
30 seconds – 1 minute
You break through into DMT hyperspace. Often at this point, users believe that their hearts or breathing have stopped. This is not true. To an outside observer, you are breathing normally and your pulse, while elevated, is strong. We believe that this subjective effect is due to your “internal clock” being slowed so greatly that the subjective time interval between breaths or heartbeats seems like an eternity. Synthetic DMT has been extensively tested by medical authorities here and in Europe. It is perfectly safe with no lasting physical effects at these doses. However, since smoked DMT causes an abrupt blood pressure increase, it is probably not good for people with abnormally high blood pressure.
1 minute – 2 – 5 minutes
depending on dosage: DMT hyperspace. For all practical purposes, you will no longer be embodied. You will be part of tne intergalactic information network. You may experience any of the following:
- Sense of transcending time or space
- Strange plants or plantlike forms
- The universe of formless vibration
- Strange machines
- Alien music
- Alien languages, understandable or not
- Intelligent entities in a variety of forms
Do not be amazed and do not try to actively direct your observations but merely pay attention. The beings can show you amazing things, but if you try to impose vour personal trip on the DMT you will find that you cannot and may become frightened.
At the end of the “flash” of the visions you will have an after-vision of circular interlocking patterns in exquisite colors. It has been described as looking at a vaulted ceiling or dome. If you did not “breakthrough” to the levels described above, this “chrysanthemum” pattern, as we call it, is all you will see. It is worth the trip, too.
You may begin to wonder how you will ever find your way back to your body. If you have taken enough DMT to fully “breakthrough”, by the time you can even wonder about it, you are almost back. Trust in your own wetware; your psyche and your body will be reunited. Worrying will only prolong the process.
5 – 12 minutes
The visions have subsided. There are still patterns when you close your eyes, but with eyes open the world is back. At this point a flood of information may rush through your mind. The phase is fleeting. In order to preserve your DMT ideation, we recommend that you begin talking as soon as you come out of the visionary state. Don’t try for complete sentences but get as many ideas out as you can while you can. Have a tape recorder running during the trip and you can review your thoughts at a later time.
15 – 30 minutes
The ideation flood subsides leaving you euphoric. You may still have a trace of the vibrations in your body.
30 – 60 minutes
The euphoria subsides.
You are completely down.
Passageway Through The Universe
DMT could be a passage into the consciousness of the universe. It seems to be a dispatcher of body and mind, the connector of human and everything else. If there is a way for us to answer our own mysteries of life and communicate with the universe through some kind of personal language, DMT seems to be able to lend a helping hand.
