TRADITIONAL AYAHUASCA HEALING INFORMATION and PRAYERS...
"Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before"
It is very important to set a proper intent when working with ayahuasca, and clearing your setting of any negative energy(s). Here are a couple prayers that you may find useful in creating a positive experience that I have used in past healings- I wish you well.

Thank you for bringing us together and allowing us to sing in this Song of Life.
(and here is an ayahuasca prayer)
Divine God, celestial Father and creator of heaven and earth- with your permission we are going to take these plants that you have put on earth. We, your earthly children have discovered it; and we use it as a remedy in order to understand our bodies and the problems we might have among us. Father, let no evil spirits enter this circle. If any of these bad spirits come, cast them into the dark and squeeze them down. We ask that the blessed angels take care of this circle.
Father, in this circle of yours there is no jealousy, revenge, black magic or anything evil. Everything is according to your laws. We ourselves heal so we can cure ailing people, as we best know how- with your spiritual guidance and Love.
Grandmother Earth… Grandmother Earth, you who give me food and shelter. The flowing waters that move in the streams and rivers are not only waters but also the blood of life that are in our veins.
Grandfather Sky… Grandfather Sky, you breathe the breath of life into me. The air is precious and it shares its spirit with all of life it supports. The wind that gave me my first breath, also receives my last sigh.
Spirit of Within… Spirit of Within, you are my appreciation. Every time a teacher has come, he has always pointed back towards you and said; YOU… in you lays the treasure. Not somewhere else. In you lies that thing you have always looked for.
My watching eyes and feeling hands can sense your grace always. Listen for your whisper close, within this gift of life. Your love, your light, your beckoning to me. Keep me close within this gift of life. Take the veil of ignorance away from me. Take the veil away so I may see. Take my home, my spouse, my children and even my life. It is you’re way always- the only way. I only ask that you do not take my Love for you Dear God.
In the heavens above and the earth below, and always within… Amen.
TRADITIONAL AYAHUASCA HEALING INFORMATION:
New bonds of friendship can and will be formed through shared shamanic experiences, challenges, insights, healing, joy and celebration of life. Some of these friendships may well last a lifetime. Work with Ayahuasca, the great holistic medicine of the Amazon, may be challenging and provocative in many ways. Ayahuasca is, for most people, a deeply penetrating and sometimes cathartic holistic workout, opening you on all levels for healing, renewal, and new dimensions in your life.
You will likely encounter some challenging moments in your work with Ayahuasca. Most everyone does. At some point you may ask yourself why you ever took on such a difficult therapeutic process. Your intention will be the answer. Those thoughts will pass, and you'll stay the course to realize blessings of deep enduring healing and transformation that will unfold in your life for a long time to come.
An important aspect of the shamanic path is to keep things moving in your life. The Ayahuasca ceremonial experience is somewhat like a microcosm of the human life experience, with each encounter revealing different aspects of ourselves and our relationships with all beings, mother earth, the universal spirit... and ourselves.
Try to have a positive and cheerful attitude. Positivity has great power. Insecurity, fear and negativity can be an obstacle and they are not needed. Bring a serious intention for your life and for this work, but don't be heavy or grim about it. Bring an attitude of joy and confidence that you can and will attain everything you seek through this work. If that is truly your intention and commitment then you will.
Don't dwell on pre-conceived expectations, whatever they may be. Ayahuasca experiences rarely conform to one's "expectation" and even less to one's demands. Remember above all else that Ayahuasca is a powerful and multifaceted HOLISTIC MEDICINE. It is not a drug. Every experience with Ayahuasca is uniquely and deeply personal and distinctive in many aspects. Your experiences will not be "like" those of anyone else, although there may be shared aspects. The greatest similarity will be in the positive RESULTS rather than the content of the intensive experiences. It is very important not to let what you've read or heard about the experiences of others color or influence your expectations or instill unnecessary anxiety.
Although visions are the most widely discussed aspect of the Ayahuasca experience, they actually are not the greatest gift of the medicine or the most important aspect of your work. Visions are a medium of spiritual and metaphysical communication. True visions are NOT hallucinations because they have deeper metaphoric or literal meaning and are not illusory. Ayahuasca does not automatically induce visions in every individual at the same time or pace. They are a visual means by which a mystical consciousness greater than our own communicates with us beyond the ordinary limitations of the intellect. Ayahuasca is a holistic medicine which communicates far more through the opening of the heart than through the mind.
Some people have powerful, vivid and dramatic experiences right away, although the amplitude, content, and intensity will certainly vary from ceremony to ceremony. Others of you may have less intensive visionary experiences or none at all. If this is the case be patient and don't jump to premature conclusions about anything. This is simply the nature of Ayahuasca and reflects it's unique interaction with each individual's personality, biochemistry, and collective life experience. This is an aspect of Ayahuasca that is difficult to explain, but is rooted in it's unique ability to penetrate the psyche and soul of each person in the manner most appropriate for their needs. Ayahuasca is not a drug, and it does not induce... it reveals. The more one is able to set aside western paradygm and conventional "logic", and fully surrender the control mandate to a higher power, the sooner one realizes a deep and powerful connection with the Great Consciousness of which we are all a part.
Serious work with Ayahuasca begins with the formulation and cultivation of a sincere personal intention. Ideally one's intention should be far-reaching and results-oriented rather than merely experience-centered and goal-oriented. Experience is a means to an end, and so is Ayahuasca. The enduring blessings one brings into their lives through this work can indeed change one's life forever for the better.
Deep lasting holistic healing and personal spiritual realization happens in many different ways, and these are the greatest gifts of Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is for many the gift that keeps on giving, and I trust that you all will realize this as well.
So, bring your best to this work ... your integrity, your commitment, a bit of courage, a dash of faith, and most importantly ... love and compassion for yourself and others. Universal love is the foundation of core shamanic principle and practice at it's highest levels. If you do this, then you'll realize blessings of deep holistic cleansing, healing, transformation and empowerment in the most personal of ways ... remarkably exactly what you need.
Purging may occur physically through vomiting, mentally and emotionally through confrontation and catharsis, and spiritually through deep personal realization. Physical purging may be vigorous or it may not occur at all. Don't fear it ... go with it ... it's one of the reasons you are coming to this work. So let go of everything you don't need anymore, lighten your load, and prepare to move forward in your life with strength and vigor. It's easier than you think, and once cleansed you'll have a new sense of baseline normalcy in your life. Some of you may purge strongly and others little or not at all. When the cleansing is done it subsides. Ayahuasca is not an emetic. It doesn't automatically induce vomiting. The degree and extent to which one physically purges is usually a reflection of the personal detoxification or emotional catharsis needed to initiate healing in the individual. It is a holistic cleansing, and as one is cleansed, the purging usually subsides in later ceremonies. Understanding the nature of the "purge" to be a cleansing process and not "sickness" is helpful in moving through it gracefully and smoothly. And you'll feel great afterwards!
You will engage the medicines and shamanic spiritual consciousness on many levels... through the intellect, through the senses, through transpersonal communication ... but most of all ... through the Heart and Soul. You'll explore what is known and you'll explore what isn't. You will engage the Great Mystery. You'll move beyond the llimitations of modern science and western intellectual rationalism to enter a sacred supernatural reality known by the ancients since before recorded human history. You will gain an understanding of the reality of universal core shamanism and it's potential applications in your own life. You are invited to open your heart and mind to spiritual reality beyond ordinary life experience, yet intrinsically interwoven with it.
The potential rewards are deep and lasting healing, spiritual self-realization, ecstatic joy, and unconditional universal love. The Ayahuasca Odyssey is in many ways an archaic revival of timeless shamanic spiritual consciousness so desperately needed in this day and time. You'll realize anew that what you seek and need the most has been with you all along and will be with you forever.
As you realize deep cleansing and healing, you will reaffirm your harmonious relationship with nature, Spirit, all creation, fellow humans ... and with yourself.
Observing the traditional vegetalista diet, it is recommended you greatly reduce or abstain alcohol, pork, red meat, salt, refined sugar, fats, saturated oils, and hot spices from two days before the Ayahuasca ceremony, and a day afterwards. Though posing no special risks (except possibly alcohol), these additives may inhibit your uptake and receptivity to the Ayahuasca medicine to some degree. Reduction or abstinence of these substances has the benefit of cleansing and purifying the system, and will hasten and strengthen your connection with the medicine. Sexual activity and thoughts should be abstained during this time as well. Sexual abstinence conserves essential energy which is better invested in the rigors of your work with Ayahuasca, and will help guide your mental and spiritual focus in more esoteric realms. You may find your natural libido enhanced along with all your other functions following your work with Ayahuasca.
Longer periods of dieting may yield additional benefits but the choice is yours. Alcohol and pork should be avoided for a week before and after work with Ayahuasca. They are the only substances one need abstain for more than a few days before and after the ceremonies.
Ayahuasca is physically, emotionally, and energetically demanding. Mental, emotional, spiritual and physical stamina is needed to complete a cycle of work.
A more liberal healing diet consists of grilled fish, vegetable or chicken soup, rice, boiled, browned, or mashed potatoes, yuca (cassava), heart of palm (chonta), eggs, and a variety of vegetables and fruits raw, boiled, or lightly stir-fried. Light seasoning is optional in the liberal diet.
It is recommend that coffee not be consumed the day of ceremony or the morning after. Caffeine is not the issue, since some widely-used Ayahuasca admixture plants, such as guayusa, contain high amounts of caffeine. Mild reactions from drinking coffee have been noted in a few people, so it's best to avoid it within twelve hours of taking Ayahuasca. Teas containing caffeine and the Brazilian plant stimulant guarana do not produce any adverse effects that have been noted. Honey may be used as sweetener if desired.
Namaste' To You All!
