TOAD / SAPO ALAVARIUS CEREMONY INTRODUCTION
The toad has held a place in humanity’s archaic consciousness since time immemorial. The earliest representations of Bufo toads (and toads generally) go back thousands of years. The appearance of toad- based artifacts is prehistoric and possibly pre-linguistic, being portrayed in ancient pictographs, paintings, and small sculpture … (Anthropologist Peter)

First places the use of Bufo toad venom is all the way back to Neanderthal Man one hundred thousand years ago.

The Effects of the 5-MeO-DMT from the Bufo Toad
The effects from this toad that is unique and it can be just found in the Mexican dessert. By the way, the main chemical is called 5-MeO-DMT and it has different effects from other types of DMT from different sources, such as the vines used to make the ayahuasca brew that is well known in South America.

Its a different tool for self-discovery, it’s like becoming “consciousness without identity.” Since this is commonly reported by others who have used this medicine, it is extremely likely that the seris shamans also had this experience.

But what does it really mean to become consciousness without identity? First of all, you do not become it. You simply recognize that it has always been that way. Mainstream science holds that your consciousness arises from the biochemistry of your body and brain. But what if your consciousness exists independently from your body? What if your true identity is your pure awareness? A honest scientific research into subjects such as out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences and past lives support this idea.

This means that our common idea of who we are is false and we should embrace a fundamental re-identification. And what better way for the shaman to point to re- identification than with the rebirth metaphor? When you are born, you get an identity. When you realize that, what you thought of as you is not really you and that your true self is your pure awareness, you become reborn in the deepest way.

You Are Eternal Like the Sun
You are like the sun. From our perspective on earth, the sun is born when it rises and it dies when it sets. But from a perspective out in space, we see that the sun is never born and it never dies; it is essentially eternal. Similarly, from the perspective of our ordinary reality, it appears as if we are born and then later, we die. Is there a different perspective, a larger framework, that reveals that our true self, our fundamental unconstructed self, is indeed also without birth or death? Are we also eternal? As I mentioned before, at birth, you get an apparent identity. When you re- identify with your true self — your pure, unchanging, eternal awareness — you are reborn in the most profound way.

The Mexican Seri Indians used a timeless metaphor on purpose to help you understand that you, too, exist beyond the boundaries of time itself. You exist as pure awareness, and time, space, energy and matter are all created within you. This re-identification as pure awareness is the deepest and most fundamental rebirth that the Indian Seris are talking about.

While many people have heard that the world is an illusion, few people have heard someone say that they themselves are also an illusion.

(Remember, an illusion has some reality to it; it just tricks you into believing a false id).

A very clearly presented lecture. The best one I’ve seen on 5-MeO-DMT and its relation to a broad range of implications that gives it meaning.

The Vice Mexico team went to the Sonora desert in search of the Bufo Alvarius, an endemic toad species that contains a very high dosage of 5-MEO-DMT in it´s body. 5-MEO-DMT is said to be the most potent hallucinogenic in the world.

Recommendations before and during the experience
Within thirty seconds, there will be an onset of almost overwhelming psychedelic effects. You will be completely absorbed in a complex chemical event characterized by an overload of thoughts and perception, brief collapse of the EGO, and loss of the space-time continuum. Relax, breathe regularly, and flow with the experience. After two to three minutes, the initial intensity fades to a pleasant dream sensation in which visual illusions, hallucinations, and perceptual distortions are common. You may sense a distortion in your perceived body image or notice the world shrinking or expanding. You may notice that colors seem brighter and more beautiful than usual. And, most likely, you will experience a euphoric mood interspersed with bursts of unmotivated laughter..

Important Considerations
Every psychedelic experience is chiefly a function of set and setting, of preparation and environment. The better prepared you are, the better the experience will be for you. Consider the following instructions:

  • Smoke the venom fairly early in the day on an empty but not starving stomach.
  • ONE WEEK BEFORE DE CEREMONY: Do not drink any alcohol, have sex or take any drugs as antidepressants medication prior to smoking the venom.
  • Bring one liter of purified water, leave the fear away and take it an accept it with love!

Not recommended for people with hart problems, big depression or anxiety successes!

Important notes
The physical effects of 5-MeO-DMT can be broken down into several components which progressively intensify proportional to dosage. In comparison to it’s often relatively mild accompanying cognitive and visual effects, 5-MeO-DMT seems to have by far the most proportionally intense and overwhelming physical sensations found within the known psychedelic experience. These individual components are complex, overwhelming and equally capable of being interpreted as either extremely pleasurable or uncomfortable.

  • Tactile enhancement – This particular component is perhaps the most overwhelming sensation within the entirety of the 5-MeO-DMT experience. It increases the intensity of tactile sensations to such an overwhelming extent that it induces a sustained and repeatable full body orgasm within every nerve ending across the entire body. The experience of this results in the perception of having a difficulty sustaining the act of breathing. It is worth noting, however, that this is not a genuine or dangerous experience of respiratory depression and is perfectly safe.
  • Euphoria
  • Nausea
  • Bodily control enhancement
  • Motor control loss
  • Bodily pressures
  • Skin flushing
  • Changes in gravity
  • Temperature regulation suppression
  • Perception of increased weight
  • Pupil dilation Cognitive effects
  • Current mind state enhancement
  • Mindfulness
  • Conceptual thinking
  • Thought connectivity
  • Analysis enhancement
  • Anxiety
  • Time distortion
  • Direct communication with the subconscious
  • Unity and interconnectedness
  • Memory suppression
  • Ego death
  • Delusions
  • Amnesia
  • Wakefulness

Visual effects
The visual effects of 5-MeO-DMT can be broken down into several components which progressively intensify proportional to dosage. In comparison to its consistently overwhelming and intense accompanying cognitive and physical effects, 5-MeO-DMT seems to have some of the most proportionally underwhelming visual effects found within the known psychedelic experience.

  • Visual acuity enhancement and Visual acuity suppression – 5-MeO-DMT is equally capable of both decreasing and increasing visual acuity. The outcome of which effect will manifest seems to be chosen almost entirely at random and is largely setting dependent.
  • Color enhancement
  • Color shifting
  • Tunnelling
  • Environmental orbism
  • Drifting (Morphing, Breathing, Melting, Flowing) – In comparison to other psychedelics, this effect
  • can be described as identical to DMT in its style, highly detailed, slow and smooth in motion and static in appearance. •Geometry – The visual geometry that is present throughout this trip does not usually occur and never extends beyond level 7 at its highest state. It is very similar to DMT although significantly smaller in size and more likely to manifest in darkness or without distractions. In terms of appearance, it can be comprehensively described through its variations as intricate in complexity, abstract in form, equally organic and digital in feel, structured in organization, brightly lit, multicolored in scheme, glossy in shading, equal in sharp and soft edges, small in size, fast in speed, smooth in motion, equal in rounded and angular corners, immersive in depth and consistent in its intensity.
