Medicina is how people of South America address Madre Ayahuasca. Medicine for the body, heart, and mind, through the workings of the spirit.
This works by connecting you directly to the source to activate the healing process, from the core outwards. This ability to open the individual towards a dimension of shared space, with no boundary between interior and exterior is propelling love and understanding.
What is Ayahuasca? Ayahuasca is known as “vine of the soul.” It is revered as a gate-opener towards a reality that supports many more dimensions, whereon this image is not a personal delirium but a shared knowledge of all that have explored the effects of Ayahuasca extract. Among aficionados, it’s almost like finding the philosopher’s stone.
What is usually said about this experience, is that, in a way or another, ayahuasca is the one calling you. You just have to be aware of the signs.
Here are the 9 reasons why you should be interested in an in-depth discussion with ayahuasca.
1. Brings Balance / Restores The Energetic Flow
The process might turn out differently depending on how you manage the procedure. Some said that they had a smooth experience while others had a difficult one.
Irrespective of the effort it takes, your perspective about life will influence your experience while in trance. The healing process through ayahuasca ceremonies involves cleansing on all levels. Physically, through a purge, mentally through a self-analysis session and emotionally through reliving your past traumas.
All of these aid to a conscious action of restructuring your life. It also helps you break unhealthy attachments like addictions.
We all exhibit energetic blockages that manifest in aches, numbness, functionality issues and all sorts of other sensibilities. These reflect in mental loops and you repeating the same mistakes.
When you notice yourself experiencing these, your body is signaling that your vital flow of energy is obstructed in certain points. Each reflects a core issue, but whether you become conscious of the specific relations or not, the energy will be liberated to flow unimpeded.
For the Chinese, this vital force is the personal chi, the essential element controlling the equilibrium of the entire being through the activity of the liver. For South Americans, the principle of chi translates in a similar understanding to one’s aura. Ayahuasca helps restore your energetic flow.
2. Revitalizing – Psychologically, Physically And Emotionally
After the ayahuasca therapy, one receives an incredible boost of energy, feeling fresh, active, enthusiastic, and with an appetite for life.
With this, you will find it easy to do anything, to spend much more effort with no complaint, and to thrive. Everything seems more intensely colored, so it’s more inviting.
On the psychological part, the plant medicine refreshes the mental atmosphere by removing the noise of your useless and annoying thoughts. It also reprograms unhealthy patterns. As a result, it leaves the mind in a state of clarity and awareness.
You will feel calm and relaxed but at the same time, your mind is attentive and excited about virtually every little thing that comes into its space. Yet, the psychic mechanisms function with sword-like precision, attending priorities with acceptance and dedication.
On the emotional side, you would feel like you are in love with life itself. You will feel a different sense of liberation that may last for weeks. This can be overwhelming in a way, but it’s still guided by compassion directed both inwards and outwards, which inevitably brings peace.
You will also notice a boost in your stamina and new heights of excitement. You will find yourself bolder and more eager to experiment with life.
3. Cleansing – Psychologically, Physically And Emotionally
For the Amazonians, the most important part of the therapy is the purge.
Ayahuasca re-activates your liver and gathers all toxic remains from the most hidden corners of your body to eliminate them.
For westerners, vomiting is almost a taboo that must be surpassed. In contrast, for South American natives, this is a necessity for the ritual. It is a routine they practice when they want to clear toxic substances from the body, blow away negative thoughts and release unwanted feelings.
For this reason, the purge during ayahuasca therapy is of primary interest. This manifests through vomiting, crying, perspiration, spitting or clearing your sinuses.
Behind the physical course of events is an interior process that recalibrates your being. Your mental anguish and anxiety will also be expelled through purging by crying out your emotions.
As a result, you will feel renewed on all levels of your existence – physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually. You will be untainted, bolder and more open to new opportunities.
4. Healing Trauma, Depression / Relieving Anxiety
The Ayahuasca therapy stirs all the interiors of your being to realign yourself.
It brings back your childhood traumas and long forgotten and painful events. It also exposes the sickening patterns in your current life that keep you on a continuous tormenting loop.
Usually, we tend to keep these emotional side of us out of sight leaving it neglected. However, these emotions will find their ways to manifest in our lives, and we eventually have to face them. Ayahuasca helps us face our anguish with amazing ease and tenderness.
With the help of the plant spirit, you can examine your traumas with love and compassion towards yourself and those involved in your issues. By accepting what already happened and forgiving those who hurt you, you open the door towards healing.
With this, you inevitably let go of blame, hatred, pain and frustration and regain your connection with society. You will get over your social anxiety and start to feel comfortable with others’ company.
5. Aiding In Addiction
Ayahuasca also helps treat addiction and exposes the ill patterns through which we perceive reality. During the therapy, it becomes clear what we truly need in our lives and what is there to replace the void we feel inside us.
It also targets the root cause of our problems to free us from the network of dependency that we’ve woven around our lives. By breaking the chain you create a statement of independence. The process is difficult, but don’t worry because you have all the help you can get.
6. Curing Severe Physical Conditions
Ayahuasca is praised in the west for its ability to heal one’s mind through the introspective psycho-analysis that it generates during the trance. The natives also know that the ayahuasca medicina works with your body in the same manner.
People have turned to this Amazonian brew for healing severe illnesses as well as for relief for terminal diseases. In fact, in the aborigine culture, the illness itself is a method of curing the soul.
Once you’ve engaged in a sincere process of understanding and accepting yourself, something within you will be rewired and you will be healed physically. That is why people turn to ayahuasca as treatment when conventional remedies no longer work for them.
7. Centers And Fills You With An Amazing Feeling Of Unity
During the ayahuasca therapy, you will experience a certain level of calmness within you.
This is because, during trance, you will be subjected to a complex dimension where you will feel a sense of unity between specific living things, human beings, nature and any combination of perceivable external systems and concepts.
At the highest level, you will feel as if your identity is simultaneously attributed to the entirety of your external environment. Ayahuasca breaks down the personal barriers and enables you to connect with everything around you. The perspective of oneness brings forward an expansive understanding of who you are and why you are here.
The feeling is commonly interpreted by many as “becoming one with the universe.” In this way, ayahuasca will reveal to you, the purpose of your existence.
8. State Of Harmony And Love Lasting Weeks After The Experience
The mechanism through which ayahuasca aids you in reassembling your being on a healthy structure is so powerful that you can feel its effects even weeks after your session.
The ayahuasca brew works chemically by interacting with your brain. It prompts the brain to increase your serotonin levels. High levels of serotonin can boost your mood, increase your energy and improve your overall sense of well-being.
As opposed to chemical substances that give a similar experience (either pharmaceutical products or illegal drugs) by pumping the brain with this particular compound, ayahuasca helps you develop a system that will enable you to sustain yourself even after your Ayahuasca experience.
This traditional brew offers you a life-changing experience. So, take advantage of it because if you long to change for the better and want it to last, this can help you attain that goal.
9. Transcending The Limits Of Perception
Ayahuasca will bring you into a state with expanded consciousness where the mental scheme is surpassed and transcended toward a multi-dimensional collective space. In that state, you will hallucinate and everything will feel more vivid than usual.
You might see different entities of indefinable forms or supernatural beings. You have to take the things you will encounter during the trance symbolically because they will open the door towards infinite possibilities.
Besides these mind-bending visions, ayahuasca will give you the gift of clarity and of conscious awareness. When in this standpoint, you will be able to observe the different dimensions of your body, mind, and heart without any attachments.
That will be the starting point where you can explore the universe, from identifying the fragment of stardust to meeting dream-like creatures because at this state you will be transcending the limits of your perception.
Ayahuasca is not a drug and should not be taken for recreational purposes. You have to be conscious and responsible if you are planning to try this. It is also recommended that you only do this with the assistance of a shaman, a therapist or at least an experienced aficionado.
