    Ayahuasca Report

    So I went to the Amazon in Peru to try out ayahuasca.








    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    In order to take part of Mother, the sacred medicine ayahuasca, follow this diet:



    I found that this diet did, by itself, increase my power to recall my dreams. It also increased my sense of taste... and I have decided to partly stick to this diet from here onwards. We put way to much salt, sugar and fat in our food.

    The Shamans made the potion from a mixture of ayahuasca and the leaves of psychotria viridis (chacruna) - it contains the DMT. Below are pics of it, and a pic of the place where they make it.

    The Shamans, or the healers, were amazing. At the place I was at they employed female healers to be in tune with the feminine energy of ayahuasca - but there were males as well - males that lacked any form of ego/macho mentality. The Shipibo people, of which they stem, is an egalitarian tribe.

    These are two of the Shamans that I worked the most with:

    Rosa


    Horacio



    Here the ceremonies took place (notice the bucket next to each bed, that's right... it's for puke):

    As far as the experience of being a part of an ayahuasca ritual in the jungle with true Shamans I can't really say much more than do it. You have to see for yourself.

    I have never tried LSD or Magic Mushrooms or anything like that before, so I can't say for certain that ayahuasca is a different experience. But having tried and experienced ayahuasca I don't really feel a need to try LSD to find out if it is the same or not. I know it's not. And I can't prove it to anyone, you just have to see for yourself. And sometimes you don't see anything, nothing happens.

    But my ideas, my notions of reality, were confirmed... confirmed with an awe of humility. And a comforting feeling of coming home. A death followed by the sense of Nature holding you in her arms, and you know that fear is not necessary...

    It is deeply personal, not that I don't want to reveal anything that I feel is personal, but that it can't relate to you. You have to have your own experience... you have to kneel in humility not of a greater force, but out of respect for the infinite and complex simplicity of the cosmos. And you will see your place. What you need to do. What you will face. What skin you must shed.

    You will wake up that inner God, and it will not be anything to do with power... more so empowerment. It will not be religious, but spiritual and intellectual... it will not be a fixed deity, but a feeling of elation within, without, above, below... it is an alchemical journey, truly, where you purge and transform yourself...

    How you do this you must see yourself, but you must not expect anything. My advice is to be receptive, calm and humble... and then...anything is possible to happen, and probably will.

    Thanks for Your Trip Report

    I am a veteran user of psychedelics/entheogens/empathogens, and I have seen a huge ayahuasca vine growing right here in Miami, but I have not yet imbibed. A friend of mine attends ayahuasca rituals here in Miami with a visiting shaman, but I do not like the idea of vomiting into a bucket indoors, in an apartment. I have taken The Little Ones - the Sacred Mushrooms with this friend. He says the experiences are quite similar. For myself, if I am to be reduced by cathartic vomiting, I prefer to crawl off into nature and do it outside, as I did in the past with Ololiqui - Morning Glory seeds. I have never taken enough peyote to make me sick, and the Mushroom spirit apparently likes me. Only once with raw living mushrooms did I become queasy.

    I appreciate the fact that you took yourself to the place where the tradition originated. It is interesting, the specific phenomenology of ayahuasca visions. People tend to see large jungle cats like the jaguar, but even those who have never seen such creatures, like certain Inuit Eskimo tribesmen, who were given ayahuasca. But they saw huge house cats in their visions! Aside from the visions, it is the Realization that I am after. The kaleidoscopic visions are of course, accompanied by ecstatic emotions that are unparalleled by anything else. They are of the nature of 'awe,' the primary religious emotion.

    I would like to prepare a mushroom spagyric elixir at some point. As psilocybin cannot be heated, I think its Sulphur could be extracted with red wine vinegar, its Mercury with red wine alcohol, and its calcined faeces extracted for Salt.

    Meanwhile, welcome to 'entheogenic enthusiasm.' For me it's lasted for decades, but of course the root of 'enthusiasm' explains this:

    Etymology: Greek enthousiasmos, from enthousiazein to be inspired, irregular from entheos inspired, from en- + theos god
    Date: 1603
    1 a : belief in special revelations of the Holy Spirit

    Peace Out!

    Found an example of the singing here and here... hearing this now again brings chills up my spine.

    Also the Mandelbrot set, something I understood weeks later, is the closest I can think of to describe the fractal visions.

    Gentlemen,
    wow what a story! I hope it brought you closer to the awe as we stand before the wonders of creation and perhaps the Creator itself. To experience the holy is priceless. The first time i ever experienced the paranormal i was using psilicybin. A sphere of light appeared in the room and I was terrified.. I had been praying intensely for God to show me my life purpose. I was in my early twenties and had bought them at a Grateful Dead concert. The sphere told me its name was Melchizadek. Now i had never heard of this name before but was able to confirm it in the Bible and the Secret Doctrine. I have since learned that Melchizedek is an order of priests in the spirit world. I have no idea where that would fit in on the Tree of Life. Then of course there is the wonderful Drunvalo Melchizadek.

    I would love to try this but know of no one in Socal worshipping with it.
    Blessings, may your experience add to your light.

    I had this in a waking dream once... like Strassman who thinks that UFO abductions etc are just heavy production of DMT... perhaps this dream was the same as I had not taken any substances yet in my life at that point.

    But the light shrieked, coming through the door, and I was so scared I could not even dare to wake up... which I finally did. I knew I had been through a spiritual event, but it would take me many years to understand it.

    I did n't even believe in the paranormal at that point in my life. if someone woul dhave told me i would have a talking orb of light in my living room when I took psilocybin i would have laughed in their face. For me it has always been about God and the Divine and nothing else mattered. Since then i have seen many things sober and under the influence. The unseen worlds are all around us all the time, just in a diferent dimension. I have kept salt water aquariums for about 20 years and Ok so i would smoke some weed and watch my fish and wonder if the fish knew they were in water. A typical stoner thought, I know. One of my friends said , "No , but they sure know its different in there than it is out here." The point is we are like the fish and the spirit world is all around us all the time but unpercieved.

    Many years ago, Bush Sr was prez, there was a signing of the Kyoto Accords down in Brazil, which he refused to sign but like everybody else did. It was a big international political deal. At the same time, there was a little known international meeting of shamen from all over the world. A friend of mine went, and incidentally had a great photo of a fire spirit long before the days of photoshop. He met some people who drank the ayahuasca. They took him far into the jungle where no American could possibly figure out how to leave. He was utterly dependent on them like a child. He said it was like he gave birth to himslf through his heart. This is a man who grew up amongst atheist postwar European intellectuals and took LSD after Leary got kicked out of Harvard and he saw God from the bottom of the ocean. He went on to become an Episcopalian priest.

    I wish someone would have told me about this stuff growing up. I had no one to even talk about my experiences with growing up, let alone when orbs of light start talking to me, or ectoplasmic displays make me practically loose bodily conrol. Just remember to always protect yourself psychically as well as physically when working. Even thoughg i am new to aalchemy, i know better than to go naked into the unknown.
