This blog is the continuation to the last one (The Two main uses of Ayahuasca) in which we talk about the 2 main uses of Ayahuasca, how it can be used as a tool for healing and spiritual growth – we recommend you check it out!

In summary: We talked about Ayahuasca being a healer or source of healing that goes to the root of the problem, whether it is mental, emotional or physical pain that you’re suffering.

Ayahuasca allows you to see where it’s coming from, where the seeds were planted and then literally release that from your body – release all that you have been carrying to cleanse the body, the mind and the emotions in a context that is safe.

Safe to go to those places that are very dark and difficult and that maybe by ourselves we wouldn’t have known where to start.

The first use of Ayahuasca is the most common people come to treat: anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, drug addictions, closure around love, relationships.

They come to heal from heartbreak, from the loss of a loved one, also going through a very difficult autoimmune disease/cancer.

There’s many different things that have been treated successfully through the use of Ayahuasca in a safe, sacred context and by people who know what they’re doing.

The second use, which is the one that i feel most excited about and is the one that has kept me in this path for a little longer and it’s Spiritual Growth.

In essence, what it does is just one thing, it sharpens your consciousness, it brings your consciousness to a higher level.

The first thing, imagine that you’re in a house, the first thing that’s going to happen as you turn the lights on is that you’re gonna see all that you were not seeing before.

There’s so much dust, dirt, garbage for many years that accumulated, but your eyes were closed so you kept tripping over all the nonsense/trash.

Yet you didn’t know why, “Why do i trip every time that i try to go in this direction? I always fail, trip, it hurts, stinks around – it’s unpleasant to live in this space.

This is the way that most people live, they don’t know because they can’t see, there’s not enough awareness inside of themselves, most of society will tell you: your house smells bad so try this spray for it to smell good/Try on this mask so you don’t have to smell it.

That’s the way that we treat most things you have, you’re feeling a void inside – let me try to sell you something that you need to feel good about yourself/You need to look in a different way/You’re anxious, let me give you some pills so you don’t feel the anxiety.

It’s a loop, Ayahuasca starts bringing clarity and awareness, it can be overwhelming at the beginning because suddenly you turn the lights on in a house that probably went 30-40 years without being cleaned properly.

Now you have to take out the trash out, you can’t avoid it because now you see it, so the beautiful thing is that you will not trip over it again because now you see it, the difficult thing is that now you have to be responsible.

It’s going to take some time to clean all that you’ve seen but what happens is that as the light starts increasing, you clean your house more and more, there comes a point when you look around and your home is rather clean and bright.

Of course, every day collects a little bit of dust, but when you look around it’s a decent place, it doesn’t smell bad anymore, you feel comfortable, at home – you start thinking about something else.

Like decorating it, painting, bringing plants and invite friends/lovers in.

Maybe i realized how to clean this part of my home in a very efficient way so i can help others clean their homes, to understand where the switch is…

I’m using this analogy for the second use of Ayahuasca which is Spiritual Growth, increased consciousness and awareness, which allows us to heal, to release.

But once the body is in a certain level of alignment and vibration, what happens after you do Ayahuasca is very different, because it’s a plant that expands your consciousness and gives you access to deeper parts of you, deeper parts of life.

It’s a plant that takes you into a very, very deep meditative state that you can also reach through meditation or other simples practices, but that will require years and years of discipline to get to.

I’m not trying to say that this is a shortcut and that you shouldn’t meditate and use direct medicine, no.

But for most people, it’s very hard to establish a practice of spiritual growth if they don’t know where they’re going, if they have no idea of what is that which i am chasing/what is it that i’m going after.

You can tell them, “Chant x mantra for the next 5 years and you’ll have an experience with god/You’re gonna have an experience of something beyond the physical.

Then people will have to take it just on faith and trust alone the whole time, maybe they don’t see much progress, and that’s a challenge with Ayahuasca.

If you have prepared well it can take you to that point very quickly and the idea is that this serves as a tool, the goal is not to drink medicine, the goal is that the medicine will give you a reference point, it will show you what is possible.

Once you have seen and picked what’s possible, your potential in your life, the essence of who you are, now you can come back and use every part of your day as another stepping stone towards getting to that which you already know exists.

It’s no longer a journey driven by trust, faith and false hope alone, it’s actually a journey that is led by knowing with certainty because you know what you have lived.

You know what you have seen, nobody can take that away from you, nobody can convince you otherwise.

This is a beautiful thing because people think that they get the most out of Ayahuasca when they’re very sick, but in my experience, the deepest processes happen to those who come without knowing why it is they’re coming.

They’re curious but they can’t quite put label on why they’re curious.

They look around and their life is working well, they have money, good finances, friends, maybe a partner that they enjoy and are attracted to, they’re clear on their mission when it comes to their company or the work they do.

They look around and life seems great by most people’s standards but there’s still something inside, not necessarily a lack of fulfillment but it’s the knowing that there is something more.

“Life is great, but i know there’s something more i feel the pull towards, the calling.”

I think when a person has reached this point in their life where they look around, life is beautiful and they look within – life is beautiful as well.

They’re ready for a true spiritual journey, nothing will take him away from it because now he knows that what he’s seeking is not gonna come from external achievements, a house, a mortgage, a company, wife, children…

It’s not gonna come from internal achievements, being more grounded, peaceful, calm.

It’s something that is beyond the chase all together, this is the beauty of using plant medicine, when you’re in a good point in your life and is that it will open a totally different dimension of what’s possible.

It will reconnect you to a deeper truth of who you are.

Once you’re in connection wtih this, you take away the friction from most of life, because you are now in touch with something that is essential, which means of the essence.

When you’re in touch with this your heart is constatly open, you can achieve whatever you want, have the relationships that you want.

But if your heart is closed, you will never find joy, peace or bliss – on the other hand if your heart is open, if you’re connected to that sacred essence of who you are, admire if things go wrong, then it doesn’t matter if you don’t achieve what you want.

You will be happy anyways because that cannot be taken away from you, it cannot be given to you, you have to find it within.

I hope this clarified the two distinctions of my idea for healing or seeking to deepen my spiritual growth, seeking to expand, open up to the possibility that there’s way more to life than i know, and maybe, to the realization that i am ready for it.
