What is Ayahuasca
HERITAGE OF THE SHAMANS
"The Ayahuasca" has been used as a healing brew in Peru for some 4 thousand years now. It is a mix of this plant with the Chacruna, which produces the fantastic psycho-spiritual effects. Read next a full description of this natural wonder from the Amazon.
It is a mix of the Ayahuasca vine and the Chacruna (a plant from the coffee family), which gives the potion its brown color and somewhat bitter taste. The reason for this blend is that the Ayahuasca is a source of DMT (Dimethyltryptamine), a powerful mind-altering compound. However, since it has to be drunk, our digestive system has an enzyme called MAO (monoaminoxidase) which destroys the DMT. Thus the function of the Chacruna is to shield the DMT, allowing it to survive the digestive enzyme, go into the bloodstream and then into the central nervous system.
The mystical healing brew, through its DMT, mimics the effects of the pineal gland, which is also a source of DMT (when we’re sleeping). However, the entire trip is done in a state of full consciousness, in a waking state, the participant does not fall asleep. The effect of course are the dream-like visions, even with eyes open. It also activates higher states of consciousness, which take to profound, life-changing realizations. And of course, it opens the contents of the unconscious, thus allowing releases of negative experiences, traumas, addictions and more.
The medicinal beverage is not toxic, does not create dependence and does not have side or secondary effects.
MAIN EFFECTS OF THE AYAHUASCA
- Its immediate effect is opening the unconscious for thorough exploration. The unconscious level harbors childhood traumas, repressed experiences and the source of depression, anxiety, addictions of all types, post-traumatic stress disorder and more is often found there. Once inside this level, the spiritual energy of the sacred brew will support and guide the participant in order to overcome all emotional, existential and spiritual issues, with the guidance of the Shaman and the assistant-translator all the time of course.
- Once the darkness of the unconscious is left behind, there is a new realm of bliss, which we can describe as a reunification with the creative, healthy, joyful side of our consciousness. The participant experiences intense joy within his own ego, within his own identity.
- The highest stage of this mental-mystical session is connection with our True Self which has no name, face, individuality and so on. It is an unbounded Self in union with nature and filled with unconditional love and power, our very inner divine essence.
- Finally, the Amazonian brew has several benefits for physical health: greatly increases flexibility of the joints, fights kidney stones and lately research is strongly suggesting the efficacy of the potion to cure pre-cancerous cells.
