Ayahuasca or yage teaches us what it has to teach us, it heals what needs to be cured and it guides us where it has to guide us. There are things we deserve to know and things we deserve to ignore. Everything is healing, learning and merit in the magical world of ayahuasca.
The experiences that are had with the ayahuasca are diverse in depth and in form. Each ceremony with the ayahuasca mother has a learning and a process of understanding.
The experiences can be intense, they can be bad,good, rewarding or simply nothing extraordinary. Taking ayahuasca can be an experience of four to five intense hours from the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical aspect.
You can experience the sensation of death, the desire to cry, to laugh or simply to remain in a state of contemplation, everything will depend on the preparation, mental, emotional maturity and physical strength.
You can experience a state of happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment that leads us to think that everything in life is solved, and even that one is strong enough to solve the problems or the evils that afflict it. I consider that taking ayahuasca is easy, the difficult and complicated begins after the ceremony, when the effects of the mother plant are finished.
How one can integrate everything experienced with daily life, how one translates what has been lived in ascending states of consciousness to the earthly plane, is when the true and profound work of each person begins with ayahuasca.
Since it is an inscrutable process, it is recommended to have enough will and enough patience for ayahuasca to continue doing its work of healing and teaching. All these processes can not be understood from a rational perspective, but from the ineffable sense, from what you can not see or touch.
Trying to explain the experience of ayahuasca is to lose yourself in the infinite labyrinths of thought and end up confused. The more you want to explain, the less you understand. Before attempting to explain, you should feel with your mind and heart open, because feeling is the language with which the old wise ayahuasca teaches you.
It is important, after an experience with ayahuasca, to take the time and space necessary for oneself, and from that to enter into a process of introspection and integration of the experience. It is important to keep a diet, to go to rest until one feels it, being able to last a few days or weeks, a prudent time, until the body and the mind return to their normal state.
Some effects or symptoms of the experience may be experienced between dreams or day to day, it is advisable to assume all this very calmly, not to panic, because it is one of the ways to cure ayahuasca. Communion with the sacred plants does not end when the effects are gone, but continues for life.
There is no good experience or bad Ayahuasca experience, it is an experience in itself, so you must have the maturity and awareness to assume that the processes of healing and learning are not necessarily pleasant or rewarding.
The good or bad experience with ayahuasca does not depend on the ayahuasca, but on the perception of each person; the magical concoction of ayahuasca does its job of healing and teaching.
Ayahuasca teaches us what it has to teach us, it heals what needs to be cured and it guides us where it has to guide us. There are things we deserve to know and things we deserve to ignore.
Everything is healing, learning and merit in the magical world of ayahuasca.
