Ayahuasca Emotional Purging One of the first things people think of when it comes to Ayahuasca ceremony is the purging: the best friend/worst enemy puke bucket, the toilet paper rolls for inevitable eye and nose faucets, the exact path to be taken to the bathroom if it gets really bad. The physical purging is one of the main reasons people are attracted to the Ayahuasca plant Medicine in the first place; not for the fun of it, but for the efficiency in which trapped emotions and energies can leave the body. It accelerates a personal or spiritual process to levels that many of us need, given how much has built up in our bodies in such an out-of-nature's-sync society. One of the common misconceptions is that the purging ends when the … [Read more...] about Ayahuasca Emotional Purging (After Ceremony and at Home)
Do you know the difference between Ayahuasca spiritual development and having a spiritual experience in ceremony? It's very important, and makes all the difference as to what changes in your world. Which Track Are You On? As the Ayahuasca Shamanic Medicine has steadily gained popularity over the years (partly because Lord knows we need the help), the influx of Ceremony participants by nature creates a dilution of experienced shamans, facilitators and integration specialists - there are simply not enough people who have had enough Medicine time to hold the space for the amount of incoming people, especially those searching for spiritual development. On top of that, there are many subsects (or tracks) a person can take within the … [Read more...] about Ayahuasca Spiritual Development vs a Spiritual Experience in Ceremony – What’s the Difference?
*Originally published in 2011, then updated in 2014 and 2019 Ego Work Not claiming to be the guru of ego work (lol that would be ironic!) So if any piece of this does not resonate, apply, or you just totally disagree, don’t use it. I’m not claiming to have a universal truth here - use it if it helps, leave it if it don’t. This is what has worked for me so far... It’s hard to find much that we purge, restructure, train on, etc that does NOT alert us through the ego somehow. At simplest terms, the only difference between Pure Spirit/Higher Self and “other” would be somehow under the umbrella of ego (at least in Meghan’s experience, perspective is always debatable in life). Ego: the protector of our deepest fears. We’ve found what seems to … [Read more...] about Ego Work: The Protector of our Deepest Fears
What is Ayahuasca Spiritual Integration? We hear the term "integration" used often within the Ayahuasca community. It's for a reason. Without personal aftercare, acclimation and integration of our ceremonial experiences, a person can be left with newfound information they feel they can't use, sometimes causing more internal strife now that they know what they're missing. Ayahuasca spiritual integration is the key to allowing the Medicine work to "take", and show up not only within ourselves, but in the physical world around us. Acclimation vs Integration There is a regular amount of energetic acclimation that often happens after big shifts (including a return to collective consciousness and all the anxiety, etc in that, that may trigger … [Read more...] about What Exactly is Ayahuasca Integration for the Spiritual Path?
