3 Things to Expect From an Ayahuasca Ceremony

Deep in the South American rainforests, there are special plants growing that people travel from afar for, and these plants are what make up the Ayahuasca that is prepared and used in an Ayahuasca ceremony.

If you’ve ever been interested in a spiritual healing and awakening experience that comes from an Ayahuasca ceremony, then it’s important to do your full research and to understand as much as you can about the workings of the Ayahuasca tea and Ayahuasca experience. By doing so, you’ll be able to more easily connect with the traditions of the ceremony, and with the emotions within yourself that you will be facing.

The Ayahuasca Ceremony: An Awakening One

When you consume Ayahuasca, you set out on an awakening journey of your consciousness and your life perceptions. The ingredients found in the Ayahuasca tea, which is the most common way, and most traditional way, of consuming it, will bring about the hallucinogenic and intense psychotropic properties that give you a new look on life. But be prepared. They are intense by no means of exaggerations, and while you are cleansing your soul and mind, the truths you may come to face could be ugly to stare at.

Ayahuasca CeremonyThe Ayahuasca Ceremony: Physical Effects of The Purge

A key point and outcome sought from the Ayahuasca ceremony and experience is to purge your body, mind, and soul of all that is negative, toxic, and a detriment to your well-being. Ideas, thoughts, and ideals that you may be holding on to will purge, and along with this mental purge there is a very real physical one that should be expected. Without having someone told you this prior to an Ayahuasca ceremony, the vomiting and diarrhea can come as a huge surprise, but most people who find themselves there, are helpfully warned of this uncomfortable – and totally given – part of the process of healing in an Ayahuasca ceremony.

The Ayahuasca Ceremony: You’re Not Alone

Something that you definitely know before you begin your Ayahuasca ceremony, or venture out into finding one even, is that you will need a shaman to help prepare and perform this ceremony for, or rather, with you. It’s all the more important to once again note, because it’s something we can sometimes forget when we are in the thralls of our experience and completely lost in our thoughts. While our guide is aware of us and doing all they can during an Ayahuasca ceremony when moments are intense, and they are experienced to help us through them, it’s important for us to know as to remember they are there for us when the time does come. Having this connection strong in your mind prior to your Ayahuasca ceremony will help you keep a bearing of human connection, or even a connection to this world as a realm itself.

The Ayahuasca ceremony is one that will not really be able to be best described, in your very own unique perspective, until you have ventured out into trying the experience yourself – at least fully. However, it is extremely important that you do take all the observation and precaution necessary beforehand to research what to expect from Ayahuasca and the effects of DMT, and these 3 things are just the beginning of your journey.
