A big part of healing and recovery is self-examination and the discovery of where you may have initially gone wrong and how to make new choices and get back on track. You might have experienced traumas in life and at those moments of time, made decisions that have affected your health and addiction but it’s easy to overlook them since they become buried in the unconscious.
Modern day healing and recovery programs may include counseling but the techniques used are not as powerful as counselors want them to be. They may never access these experiences that are at the root of the problem.
Plant-based medicine such as Ayahuasca has changed all that. Ayahuasca is a mixture of plants called Banisteriopsis caapi and leaves from the chacruna plant. When the mixture of plants are cooked, a potent hallucinogen called N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is created. This substance keeps you fully alert but you’re in a visionary state for a few hours. The herbs also are known for their purging effects so vomiting or diarrhea is to be expected for a few hours as part of the spiritual cleansing.
Experiencing Ayahuasca at Ayahuasca Retreat Centers can unleash any possible positive or negative emotions that have been waiting for their release, allowing you to search for meaning in your life. It can also bring in a spiritual guide that lifts a veil for you to see yourself as you are, have been and could be, creating a powerful transformation.
The best way to experience Ayahuasca for your spiritual healing is with a shaman from Peru who is experienced in using the herbs, in a healing and detox treatment program that includes other natural holistic rehab healing methods of nourishment and cleansing. The shaman healer includes the sacred rituals of using the herb and the American healers help you process your experience in terms of American culture.
Ayahuasca Effects are not a hallucinogenic like LSD and they do not keep you addicted to it; Ayahuasca has no addictive properties.
