Today’s blog? I had two options – the first, I had three people ask me in one day if my daughter would be available to do something. She’s 30, ask her yourself. I decided it was more of a rant than a blog.
I did get my answer yesterday in a big way, though. Two women booked separate appointments, and both wanted to hear from the same family member. After the last reading, the one woman shared that she had done ayahuasca, the second choice for my topic. There’s your sign!
I am not averse to ayahuasca, however, at this point it is not something for me. I have worked diligently for more than 20 years with my mediation practice. It has brought so much to my life. My thought has always been that hallucinogenic drug induced states to achieve spiritual growth are taking a shortcut that may be short lived. Do the work!
It makes me think back to the ‘60s. Many people were using hallucinogenic drugs to assist in spiritual growth. Funny, when I was younger, I just thought people were doing it to get high, or to self-medicate, perhaps both.
Flash-forward into one of my online intuition development classes. I heard a couple of students recently talk about taking ayahuasca. It was not part of the classwork, so we really did not discuss. I wanted to stay on task.
Back to my client. She made me think about this from another viewpoint. She was in her mid to late 60s. And really wanted to connect with her son, who had died 25 years ago at the age of 20. She said she did ayahuasca and shared with me that she met her son, who unzipped his Soul and touched her Soul. Amazing! My client’s whole aura changed when she spoke of it.
I do believe I wrote a blog on this long ago and have to say I was so against it. That woman’s light made me realize that perhaps, yes, it is for some people. I always pray for the highest and best.
I plan on having a discussion in one of the advance classes about the topic. I’m willing to learn. I’m just not sure I’m willing to experience.
