Would You Try Ayahuasca If You Thought You Could Talk to God?

Ayahuasca-preparation

Spirituality, anything spiritual, really, intrigues me. I’ve always believed that we are on this planet to discover why we’re here and how our talents can contribute to the well being of ourselves and everyone here. As one who experimented with drugs in the 70s (I know, everyone says the 60s, but I was a late bloomer), I never entered into the realm of drugs for the sole purpose of getting high – I entered it because I wanted to connect with my soul purpose.

Just recently I’ve come across a drug that promises to connect me with my soul and I’ll be honest, though I haven’t taken drugs in many many years, this one, well, this one, is one I’d like to try. If I can connect with my soul in ways I’ve never connected before, if I can reach that part of myself that is connected to everyone and everything, I’d love to try it.

Why? 

What if you were able to reach into your soul, discover your unique talents, and change your entire way of thinking? You might use meditation or regression therapy or any of the myriad psychological tools available to you to release the inner YOU and define your purpose. Or you might use Ayahuasca.

Western philosophy depends heavily on pharmaceuticals as the path to health while Eastern philosophy and various regions on Earth often rely more on mystical remedies. Even Native American rituals use earthly plants for their ceremonies.

So would you use “Nature’s Remedy” to help you reveal the real YOU?

Netflix is currently running documentaries on a drug that allows immediate access to the soul. If you are interested in watching the documentaries, the first one is called, Ayahuasca Vine of the Soul and the second is DMT: The Spirit Molecule, based on the book by the same name, written by Rick Stassman, M.D.

Proponents of the use of Ayahuasca recommend hiring a shaman, because what you discover about yourself during an Ayahuasca trip requires guidance. And yes, I said trip. This drug takes you on a journey into your soul, and while the trip is often beautiful and insightful, it can also be frightening as it releases demons you wouldn’t want to fight alone.

So what is Ayahuasca?

Ayahuasca is actually a combination of two plants originating from Peru, one of which is banisteriopsis caapi (the Ayahuasca vine) and the other, psychotria viridis (Chacruna), both of which are boiled together and made into a form for either smoking or drinking. Ayahuasca is legal in the United States. Chacruna is not, because of its narcotic status – Chacruna contains the chemical, Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which is an hallucinogenic.

Ayahuasca Retreats

Have an extra $3-5,000 lying around? Journeys to your soul are expensive, but you can find them everywhere now. When once seekers of insight had to travel to Peru for the experience, Shamans are now visiting the United States and holding Ayahuasca Retreats.

You might think that something as illegal as DMT wouldn’t be allowed in the United States, but law enforcement doesn’t seem to understand ayahuasca (especially since Ayahuasca can mean just the vine itself or the combination of Ayahuasca and Chacruna), and you can find retreats just about anywhere now. Try running an online search for Ayahuasca retreats and you’ll find over 65,000 entries.

Finding an Authentic Shaman

Finding an authentic shaman is not an easy task, though. Anyone can call him- or herself a shaman. Shamans can’t provide documentation to prove they are shamans, so the best advice I can offer here is to read about others’ experiences and find out from them where they went to experience Ayahuasca. Lots of online blogs will point you the way.

Purchase Ayahuasca Online and Do It Yourself

Several websites devoted to the discreet sale of the concoction in powder or tea form sit online and range in price from the ridiculously high to the very tolerable. But like anything you order online, be alert to fraud.

Yes, you could journey to your soul by yourself, but even if you’ve researched Ayahuasca and you think you understand what could happen to you under its influence, remember this old saying – you don’t know what you don’t know. People have been known to gouge out their skin because they think bugs are crawling on them. With nobody to protect you from hurting yourself, your experience could harm you.

Also, just because you’ve had one good experience with Ayahuasca doesn’t mean that all your experiences will be good. Remember, on your journey to your soul, you might have to fight demons.

Word of Caution

Since Ayahuasca has become more or less Westernized, the proliferation of the drug has infiltrated the United States market and people calling themselves shamans are raping (literally and figuratively) eager individuals who spend thousands of dollars for what they believe will be a spiritual experience. These supposed “shamans” give you other drugs proven to provide an hallucinogenic trip, like LSD and mescaline, and once you are hundreds or even thousands of miles away from home in a vulnerable position, your spiritual experience could likely turn into a horrifying nightmare. With these types of trips, it helps to have a tour guide (a Shaman).

      Thank you, Linda. I do, too, but after reading about everyone’s experiences, I’d like to at least try it – with a shaman present! It will never happen, though. It’s way too costly.
