Latest Swim's Salvia experience made me remember of this recurring pattern that Swim has noticed several times now, and that can explain some subtle working of Salvia divinorum.
Swim has noticed that Salvia promotes the resolution of past wrong beliefs.
The way she does that is by making you remember a time when you had the "belief", a time when you started to believe in the belief. It makes you remember you had the belief and that you did not realize the belief slipped unnoticed in your subconscious, so unnoticed that you have even forget of the belief itself.
Swims can count several of such "beliefs" shown by S. divinorum. For example, in his last experience Swim saw when he started to act as a "shy person", when he actually decided to be shy, long ago in his childhood.
I've noticed that the same mechanism works not only on beliefs, but with wrong pattern behaviours too. This could explain why some say that Salvia helps with addictions.
Anyway the important thing for me is that this belief-breaking mechanism of S. divinorum can work for the resolution of the ultimate human belief: the illusion of self, believing that there is a separate "me" acting and doing things in this body. That's how I understand that Salvia can help us see through the Maya illusion.
Free thoughts running in my mind that I felt I had to share.
