pumadventuresperu.com Ayahuasca is an ancient visionary curative medicine that comes from the Amazon. It is traditionally used in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil. Ayahuasca has two main components: the ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the chakurruna leaves (Psychotria viridis). The spirit and character of ayahuasca are full of feminine and divine qualities. At the ceremony, people often perceive the spirit of ayahuasca in the form of a woman or snake. This visionary plant medicine is often called “the Purge.” They gave it this name because during the ceremony it helps us cleanse our physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual bodies through a powerful purging process. It is said that medicine moves through our body, activating and awakening our sleeping energy. When these energies are activated, they are expressed in different ways and, ultimately, are removed from the body. The purge process can take innumerable forms, commonly expressing release through tremors, vomiting, diarrhea, strong emotions, tears, yawns, etc. Ceremonies that involve deep physical and energetic cleaning and cleansing often precede ceremonies with deep VISION and light. Often, the journey that takes us is difficult to understand at that time, but with the benefit of hindsight, the deep wisdom of the plants begins to reveal itself. The medicine will give you what you need and what you want.
