If you’re considering having an Ayahuasca experience, there is some basic info you should know about the plant. Since this plant is well known for its life-transforming experiences, wouldn’t you want to know what it’s doing to the brain and why it’s nontoxic?
Ayahuasca is a mixture of the herb Banisteriopsis Caapi and leaves from the Chacruna plant. The two herbs are used together because the Chacruna plant makes the DMT available to the body when it’s consumed orally. DMT is the medicinal constituent that keeps you fully alert and in a visionary state for a few hours. It’s during these hours that your brain (and life) can transform.
But how does it do this? Ayahuasca DMT activates several parts of the brain simultaneously – the amygdala, forebrain, pineal gland and the insula. It’s your amygdala that stores your emotional memories, especially the traumas that you went through in life. The forebrain is the part of the brain that allows you to see what’s in the real world and make sense of it. Your pineal gland is related to your third eye and is where you see visions and get revelations about your life. And the insula is the area where feeling states are generated, somewhat like a bridge between acting out of emotions and rationally.
Your brain always tries to understand new experiences from the perspective of all your previous experiences. Ayahuasca hyper activates all four brain regions and uncovers long-forgotten memories that may have affected you. It lets you temporarily override old patterns of behavior so new connections are made and you can make new choices.
It’s also a bridge into the spirit world and you meet Mother Aya, the spirit associated with the Ayahuasca Plant. She’s connected to the visions you have of your life; you see exactly what the truth is about your life and how this could change. It becomes easy to make new decisions.
When you decide to go ahead and have an Ayahuasca experience, your net decision is where to go to get it. You have two basic choices – in the Amazon jungle or in Baja Mexico at The Holistic Sanctuary Ayahuasca Center.
The jungle may be good for those who like camping, hiking and outdoor sports but a secondary consideration is that you may opt for a safer environment – one without the bugs, poisonous spiders, mosquitoes, high humidity or camping conditions.
