AYAHAUSCA

THE NAME AYAHAUSCA COMES FROM THE QUECHA WORDS AYA MEANING SOUL OR SPIRIT AND HAUSCA MEANING VINE. AYAHAUSCA , THE VINE OF THE SOUL IS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE HOLISTIC PURGE OF BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT, CLEANSING AND HEALING THOSE WHO SEEK ITS REWARDS IN GOOD FAITH WITH OPEN HEART AND MIND.

Among the positive processes initiated by the Ayahuasca cleansing experience are:

Catharsis: Catharsis is precipitated on the physical level as a vehicle for cleansing and detoxification. Spiritual catharsis occurs at a deeper level as Ayahuasca purges negativity, toxins, personal "baggage" and "garbage" accumulated through one's lifetime.  The pace and depth of this process depends greatly on the willingness of the individual to surrender ego and pride to achieve the blessings of cleansing and rebirth.

Abreaction: Abreaction is a process of regression back to the situation or source of a problem or trauma. This process allows one to relive the experience to gain new understanding and insights enabling resolution or closure. The frequent result is a liberation from guilt or fear or whatever psycho-spiritual forces might have bound the individual previously. The process often results in candid re-evaluation of one's life course with strong tendency and resolution to pursue positive changes to improve one's life with renewed purpose and mission.

Spiritual Realization: Most people who experience Ayahuasca in a positive and nurturing environment report some sort of spiritual experience. While these experiences certainly have a personalized aspect based on the individual's past experiences and attitude toward religion and spirituality, there is also a remarkably consistent nature and character to the Ayahuasca experience when undertaken in proper set and setting. The character of the experience, and especially the visionary icons encountered, are greatly influenced by the cultural context in which the experience occurs, and equally so by the specific plants used, regardless of their chemical composition.

The quintessential Ayahuasca experience probably cannot be fully realized outside the natural and cultural environment of Amazonia. The reason is simple...all the inherently natural organic and cultural links are present.  Here the spiritual connection between the plants and the eco-cultural union which brought the unique brew into existence is strongest and most profound. That the Amazonian plants are endowed with a special magico-spiritual dimension in their natural habitat is evident to those who have experienced both in situ (in the natural habitat) and ex situ (outside the natural habitat) types of Ayahuasca experiences.  This is not to say, of course, that highly beneficial personal results cannot be achieved using Ayahuasca in other circumstances.

Holistic Healing: Ayahuasca has the noted capability to accomplish often seemingly-miraculous healing of Mind, Body, and Spirit. Not every person comes to this medicine with the same needs. The magic of Ayahuasca rests in its ability to find, focus, diagnose and heal the causes of one's personal problems or illness as well as the symptoms. The cleansing and healing is deep, to the core, and is therefore likely to have a lasting positive effect on the patient.

 

More notes on Ayahausca:

 

Ayahausca is a medicine from the Amazon basin of South America. Tribes throughout this vast region have been using this brew as their main connection to the spiritual realms as well as for healing, guidance and knowledge since the dawn of time.

Ayahausca has entered the western awareness thanks to the pioneering work of Terence Mc kenna and is an energy that wants more and more to work beyond the confines of the Amazon jungle, helping people in dealing with the current chalanges of human evolution on this planet.

Ayahausca has moved beyond the Amazon to become a truly global medicine, available to all that seek its wisdom and healing power with respect.

Ayahausca is known in the jungle as "la purga"(the purge) and is a medicine that cleanses one on all levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, from all those elements that prevent one becoming what one is truly called to be and manifest in this world.

This medicine supports the letting go and healing of past wounds and allows the re-emergence of ones divine essence.

It is a very powerful medicine, often challanging, but very rewarding for those who approach it with humility and a sincere desire to heal and grow.
