*In no way does this article endorse taking drugs of any nature. It's purpose is simply informational and hopefully educational.
DMT or Dimethyltryptamine, to give it it's full name, is the most powerful hallucinogenic substance in the world. Not only that but it's endogenous; we produce it in small quantities in our own bodies. So do most mammals and other animals, not to mention a huge variety of plants.
It's found in our liver and lungs and tests on rats have shown it to be present in the pineal gland of the brain. There is still some debate about whether this is where it is created. Testing for it in the pineal gland needs to be done on a live subject but the procedure kills that same subject. No human has yet offered themselves up for experimentation... The pineal gland is also known as the "Third Eye" and some consider it the seat of our soul. Interesting; and as I hope to demonstrate, inspirational.
But guess what? In the UK and America it's a Class A/Schedule 1 drug/narcotic! Right up there with heroin and crack cocaine is a naturally occurring chemical we produce in our own body. What next, adrenaline? God forbid if we get excited about something... This is a talking point in itself, why the Deep State sees fit to make it illegal. I sense another article brewing in the near future...
Dr. Rick Strassman is one of the leading scientists who has investigated DMT for many years. In 2001 he published his book "DMT: The Spirit Molecule" which was followed up by a documentary in 2010 going by the same title. I will link them at the end for you, they are essential viewing and reading. And of course, no DMT article would be complete without mentioning Terence McKenna, a true pioneer of everything psychedelic.
DMT is the active ingredient in Ayahuasca, a concoction brewed from plants for millenia by many different cultures and tribes in South America. DMT cannot be taken orally as our gut breaks it down so fast that it cannot take effect.
To ingest Ayahuasca requires the addition of an MAOI (MonoAmine Oxidase Inhibitor) and somehow, the tribes of the Amazon jungle discovered which plants to brew with the DMT-containing plants, in just the right amounts, so as to make it effective when drunk as this tea. That's pretty incredible!
The usual method for taking pure DMT is by smoking it in it's powdered form. This brings an almost instant and incredibly powerful "trip" that lasts for 10-15 minutes. People have described it as being blasted out of their body and fired across the universe or to other realms of existence almost instantaneously. They travel to worlds of fractals, incredible vivid colours, bizarre and beautiful patterns beyond words and much, much more.
"1000 years of experience in 15 minutes" - DMT test volunteer.
Drinking Ayahuasca is slower acting and lasts much longer, anything from 4-6 hours. In the Amazon, a Shaman is supposed to be present to not only brew the tea but to guide you through your journey and look after you. They are both different experiences but with very similar results.
After taking DMT in whatever form, people report having experienced altered states of consciousness and an incredible sense of leaving the body and totally transcending this reality. These are incredibly powerful spiritual experiences and have been known to be life-changing. People have been given lessons and shown things that are not visible or present in this plane of existence.
People report leaving our actual universe, being aware of no space or time. Another common occurrence is "ego-death", the destruction of everything you believe is "YOU". This is apparently a good thing and also aids in gaining more from the experience as it's less affected by an individual's specific beliefs or thought patterns.
Some feel a great sense of oneness with the universe, a connection with the infinite source that we and everything else are all part of. It's very mystical stuff going on here! So why IS it there and what is it's purpose?
To gain more insight, I interviewed a popular Youtuber called Alan Chapman who has taken DMT many times and spoken of it in his Youtube videos. I will provide a link to his channel (Shaman oaks) at the end too. He is a fascinating man with various interests.
Alan began by telling me that something that everyone appears to experience, every time they take DMT, is what he referred to as "Lady DMT". The famous reporter and author Graham Hancock calls her "Mother Ayahuasca", but you get the point. There is almost always a feminine presence felt during the trip, even if she is not directly seen.
Also, there is an almost sexual attraction to "her" and this is also felt by straight women and gay men. They describe it as a deep yearning and longing for her. Alan sent me a comment from a female answering his question of who she might be on one of his videos;
"Have you ever looked into... twin flames... How we are a ball of light before our human world... we have a male and female part and then we split... always looking for our other half... Your female ball of light sounds like your twin flame..."
Perhaps the Lady DMT that people meet on a DMT experience is our personal twin flame? I think that they are actually what some may call "God" or the source of EVERYTHING; thus, we are all twin flames to her. And so is everything in the universe.
I then asked about the similarities that people share when taking DMT. This is one of the amazing facts about DMT; everyone seems to experience many of the exact same things. This is not like other hallucinogens such as LSD or Psilocybin in magic mushrooms where every trip is usually very different. The following is a list of what he told me most will experience;
- Gnomes are common, but not as common as the lady DMT presence.
- Generally experiencing other beings, whether visually or not.
- Telepathy being the main form of communication with said beings.
- The feeling of a lot of time passing in a short amount of earthly time.
- Things moving in ways that are impossible to describe using earthly language. Things seem to have an extra dimension that we don't have here.
- The feeling of being in another dimension.
- Being taught something. I always ask people afterwards what they felt like their lesson was. Sometimes it takes people a few days to figure it out, but they almost always come out of a trip with something learned.
- If you don't "breakthrough" you tend to be confined to a "room". I call it the waiting room. It's a space that seems to be alive and watching you, but it's a room. Again, hard to describe, but imagine a room where everything is moving and morphing and sometimes parts of the walls have eyes and they watch you.
- If you breakthrough it's common to go on vast expansive journeys that seem to last for weeks or months and see very expansive landscapes and be taught lessons. A feeling of "blasting off" tends to happen.
I asked more about the gnomes. I have watched many videos on DMT and everyone seems to describe what they commonly call "machine elves"; Alan simply called them gnomes.
He said that on one occasion, they kept running up to him and massaging his legs. Another time, at a point where he was just a ball of energy, they "rebuilt" his body. However, shortly after this the new body exploded and he was back to being a ball of energy!
NOTE - Everyone describes a DMT trip as being more "real" than the actual reality we believe we live in.
Machine elves are not the only machinery people sometimes see. Many describe seeing incredibly elaborate and complicated engineered technology that could not possibly be of this world. Could it be that of the creator(s)? Most also definitely feel they are in another realm of existence and some describe meeting what they can only describe as aliens.
Some people, Alan included, mention seeing a "Joker" figure in a jester's outfit. They teased him and made him feel uncomfortable. Famous podcaster Joe Rogan had one such trip where he was surrounded by these Jokers and they were giving him the middle finger and telepathically telling him "Fuck you!". Rogan and Alan both seemed to sense that these beings were there to teach them not to take themselves so seriously.
That was pretty much the extent of what we spoke about and I found it absolutely intriguing, especially combined with the rest of my knowledge gained so far on the subject.
In answer to the title...
Yes, I believe that DMT is "the spirit molecule", for want of a better phrase. As well as what you've read in this article, I have read and watched a vast amount of information on the subject and I'm convinced this is something very special.
For me, my research continues. I am fascinated by all the BIG questions about life and all the major "Why?" questions regarding EVERYTHING! I believe that nature has given us DMT for a reason, nature doesn't do anything by accident. I believe it's a key we can use in this life to take a look into what happens "elsewhere", possibly the next realm for our afterlife.
After all, we are transcendent beings of energy all connected to the same universal consciousness, as it is to us. No separation between anyone or anything.
It is widely thought that DMT could actually also be the key to answering all our questions about human consciousness while we are stuck here in this existence. It gives me great hope and one day I intend to take DMT myself. It will be well documented if and when that happens.
One thing I must add is that DMT is certainly NOT a recreational drug such as cannabis and it should not be approached as such. Strangely enough, people seem to be able to strictly regulate and naturally limit their usage, however amazing the experience. They say it is so powerful and epic that a rest is often needed, sometimes of many years between trips!
Frequent flyers are not rewarded in this case...
DMT obviously has a huge psychological impact on a user and your psyche will have a huge impact on your experience. It is not something to dive into without first giving it great thought and preparation.
Also, DMT is illegal in the UK and USA as I have already mentioned, check your local laws if you're not sure. I do not know where to get it or how to make it. If you are interested in taking it then please do not contact me, I cannot help. If you can source it yourself, please take great care. Not just that the DMT is genuine but bear in mind that this substance is an overwhelmingly potent psychedelic and must be treated with the utmost respect.
I will finish with something else Alan told me; "Something that I think you'll discover in your research is that DMT has a way of always making sure you have more questions than you started with. It's a deep, deep rabbit hole that I'm not entirely sure we can fully grasp as humans in this life time. I've heard someone say it's like trying to describe what the internet is like to an ant."
Far from putting me off, that sounds like a challenge!
I would love to hear your story if you too have experienced DMT as I intend to write a further article at a later date maybe going into more detail of a specific aspect.
See you in the next one.
