    Ayahuasca Report

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







    Don’t 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.

    Don’t let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    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!
