Allow Nature to Be Your Teacher
Ayahuasca holds a mirror to you. It reflects your internal landscape onto the surface of awareness, where you’re forced to confront it, to hold it, to listen to it, to learn from it. It sheds your stories and defenses and exposes your true nature, your true self.
It can be an uncomfortable and challenging process because it brings our deepest fears, emotions, and discomforts to the surface so we can face them directly.
This is where transformation begins. This is where we come to a place of wisdom – through facing these challenges and being able to see and understand their root causes, acknowledging and addressing them, and, finally, freeing ourselves from them – letting them go.
Trying mushrooms for the first time can be intimidating. Mushrooms are an incredibly powerful psychedelic and entheogen. And they can bring much of what you have hidden in the depths of your subconscious to the surface of awareness – pains and traumas, self-deceits and defenses, but also your deepest gratitudes and values.
So, before you embark on this journey, it’s important to really understand your motivation and intention behind it. This intention can then act both as an anchor to keep you grounded through your journey as well as a means to pull more out of your experience.
Before you commit, let’s talk and figure out whether this is right for you. And then, if it is, let’s find a really good frame for your motivation and intention. I want to do everything in my power to make sure you feel safe and loved while you explore the entheogenic and psychedelic effects of psilocybin – the psychoactive compound in ‘magic mushrooms’.
You are undeniably beautiful. A truly remarkable fact of existence.
