In 2007 and after hearing Graham Hancock speak on Coast to Coast AM about his personal experiences with Ayahuasca, I decided to try something. Because I couldn’t go to Peru for my own experience, I decided to ask my body to release enough DMT into my system to allow me to have a wonderful experience without getting sick (as happens with some people).
That night as I lay in bed, I calmed my mind and asked my body to do this and that night I had the most wild, psychedelic dreams I’ve ever had. I awoke in the morning and just lay there for some time reflecting back on the amazing and vivid imagery, color spectacle, etc. It was as though living in a world surrounded by 1970′s velvet posters, where they’re best viewed with only a black light.
It had such an impact on me and the day that followed that I decided to give it another try the next evening. Again the experience was mind-blowing. So much so, I repeated the request for my body (specifically the pineal gland) to release DMT or whatever it really is into my body for thirteen days in a row, and each time my body produced an unbelievable experience.
I’m not sure why I stopped after thirteen days, but suspect that whatever I gained from the experiences reached a natural completion. In other words, it was as if I needed to go through this experience so I could be prepared for the journey which lay ahead.
