Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience leaving your body and coming back, to have an out of body experience, to see the vibrational energy grid of the universe or to astral travel and have a vivid surreal encounter?
We live in an information age and our society and culture is continually expanding to accommodate every new and exciting discovery. As humans we need to keep moving forward in order to develop and survive and to progress to the next level in our evolution. Many of us want to experience the other side and have considered taking risks to achieve this but there is another way you can choose this experience using your mind and body.
We have a very small gland in the center of the brain called the pineal gland. It is shaped like a small pine cone and has more blood flow and higher levels of concentrated energy than anywhere else in the body. The pineal gland which is part of our endocrine system performs functions that are essential to our life. When our individual vital life force or soul energy enters the fetus in the womb, it completes our physical body. Our body is not complete without a soul. The pineal gland acts as a conduit for this soul energy and is known as the seat of the soul or the pathway to consciousness. Think of it as your spiritual antenna which picks up energy that operates on vibrational frequencies.
The center of the pineal gland is made up of water and in the fluid there are crystal components called micro clusters which can flip over. The fluid is connected to the conductive electromagnetic fields of time and space. When a source of energy vibrates in time or space it activates the crystals in the water of the pineal gland and the alteration of energy activates functions of the gland via the retina and cornea of the eyes. This amazing gland which with good reason is also called our third eye provides us with the ability to experience inner mind vision, to see visions in our dreams and to experience astral travelling.
The pineal gland is an essential part of our glandular system producing the hormones serotonin and melatonin which are highly concentrated tryptamine-based enzymes crucial to our bodily functions. A natural process which occurs in the pineal gland during deep sleep or sometimes under extreme stress doubles the amount of tryptamine in our brains and naturally results in DMT or N-Dimethyltryptaimine.
When the body produces large amounts of DMT it creates an altered state of consciousness and opens up gateways into time alterations, providing access to paranormal realms and other dimensional realities. It allows the movement of our life force through energetic alterations. Many have explored this phenomenon as a spiritual experience describing a euphoric sensation beyond the normal comprehension of our known reality. When a person has a near death experience, the brain is flooded with natural DMT to allow the vital life force to exit the body. The pineal gland is responsible for engaging an extraordinary amount of DMT at a pinnacle point in our life span.
Scientific research has been able to produce synthetic DMT and it acts as a powerful short-acting psychedelic drug producing similar effects to natural DMT. This drug is either smoked or intravenously injected into the blood stream for rapid effect. Natural DMT offers the same experience however the results vary depending on the length of time.
Nature has also created DMT in certain plants that contain beta-carbolines (alkaloids which are derived from the amino acid L-Tryptophan). Ayahuasca is a medicinal tea prepared from the vine Banisteriopsis Caapi, which when combined with some other specific plant species, activates a brew with high levels of DMT. When Ayahuasca brew is ingested this orally activates the DMT within our own bodies. By using the natural plant base you can experience an intense connection with the spiritual world.
There are several other plants which have a similar effect on the mind and body but Ayahuasca is probably the most commonly known. It assists in the spiritual exploration of self and acts as a guiding inner teacher who outlines the number of lessons you need to acknowledge. By creating an altered state of mind, Ayahuasca acts as facilitator in your journey of personal healing from emotional blocks and delivers insights into the therapeutic restoration of physical issues. There are many purposes behind the use of this medicine. It can deliver expansion and illumination of your personal consciousness to create a deeper level of understanding about your life journey, your purpose on earth, the true meaning of the universe and clarify how to explore the depth of your involvement.
Science is not sure about what role Ayahuasca plays in our society however it has been used in religious ceremonies for centuries. Indigenous western Amazonian tribes have used the plant in religious and healing ceremonies and Shamans have been using Ayahuasca under formal controlled conditions for years, following traditional methods and strict protocol with regard to diet, physical and mental conditions, to prepare for a ceremony which would normally progress over several days. It provides individuals with access to subconscious processes in a state comparable to, but thought to be even more potent than, a meditative state.
If you choose to journey with Ayahuasca, bonding with your guide is essential as they will support you during your experience. Many travellers have reported euphoric mental and visual experiences however your mindset prior to ingesting the brew could influence your experience. There is another not quite so pleasant side to this naturally occurring drug. Side effects can include vomiting, nausea, gastric upset and hot and cold sweats. Not much is generally mentioned about this however Shamans generally believe this is the body eliminating toxins after or during the experience. DMT can also increase heart rate and blood pressure.
Ayahuasca has also played a significant role in drug rehabilitation clinics in South America. Through experimenting with DMT based drugs in the recourse of clinical trials to assist heavy drug addicts recover from addiction, research concluded that addicts exposed to five or more sessions with DMT either completely changed their drug habits or dramatically reduced their usage.
This mind-expansive, naturally-occurring drug can be a journey of self-discovery that will blow your mind from the inside out. You can experience ‘oneness’ not only with yourself, but with nature, the world and even the whole universe around you.
