Ayahaska is an ancient brew a few thousand years old, and its used in shamanic ceremonies for out of body experience. In it’s structure ayahaska contains a huge amount of DMT molecule which is widely known as a spiritual molecule.
The molecule DMT can be found in every live form on this planet and in scientific communities it is also known as a universal particle for the communication.
DMT directly affects the work of the pineal gland, placed in the central part of the human brain, and in the huge doses produces hallucinations.
The old legend says that the ayahaska originates from the civilization of Atlántida, who genetically modified the plant, when realized that the they civilization is coming to an end. They were very advanced in three type of intelligence ( spiritual, emotional and rational) and they had a huge need to leave their knowledge behind, so they genetically modified ayahaska plant with the cognitions of they civilization.
The legend can not be verified or proved but we have to admit that is very original and mysterious.
The personal experience:
Since 2004 I have been in seven ayahaska ceremonies: I took the medicine (that’s the word that shamans use) on five occasions. On another two occasions I didn’t use it, because I was the translator between a shaman and a tourists who didn’t speak any Spanish. Therefore I have to admit that my life is divided in two parts: before and after ayahaska.
Before ayahaska ceremony I’ve read so many spiritual books, dozens of mystic texts, I was practicing transcendental meditations, and I had a few lucid dreams, but the ayahaska trip was the first deep travel to the other side of the unknown.
During the ceremony I experienced a passage into the fields where I was vividly aware of the illusion of the real world.
After the ceremony, when I found myself back in this reality, I tried to implement the knowledge from the other side into this realm. The first thing that I implemented in practice was to look at the life in less serious way, and I had an immediate response from the life; It began to treat me appreciably gently.
Other visions and messages that I received from that inner trip are inexplicable because they are far away from the power of words and human understanding.
Since my eighteenth birthday I was experimenting with all sorts of conventional drugs, and with full responsibility, I can say that ayahaska is not a drug and that doesn’t have addictive properties. Mater of fact, I was speaking with huge number of people that participated in ayahaska ceremonies and most of them, after two or three times, didn’t have any wish to repeat the experience.
On the wings of positive energy gained during the ceremony I began to advocatenayahaska and advised other’s to try it, and after few months I’ve received message from maestro Miguel (whom I did not met before, nor did I have any contact with in the meantime), in which he undoubtedly told me that I have to stop preaching about ayahaska.
Ayahaska experience happens or it does not, and it has to be that way…
Recreational drug users who want to participate in ayahaska ceremony are not advised to take it, because it can produce severe mental problems in the future, and few decent shamans in Amazonian jungle and Andean part of Peru, wouldn’t let people younger then 30 to take it.
The use of the medicine is strictly forbidden to people with epilepsy, the ones who have a heart or neural problems, and the ones who are under any kind of sedatives.
All other souls are free to make a decision about ceremony relying on intuition and feelings.
