In YourHighestTruth, taking part in an ayahuasca ceremony or retreat offers the chance for profound healing and transformation. There is a lot of potential for spiritual experiences that are revelatory, for physical, mental, and emotional healing, among other things. Since she is not a “normal medicine,” working with her benefits from preparation, whether we are preparing our bodies physically through a dieta or our minds, hearts, and spirits for the trip ahead.
Setting goals can be a crucial and beneficial aspect of that preparation. So, here are some tips for maximizing your interactions with the sacred plant.
Why do Ayahuasca users set intentions?
1. The moor
Many of us encounter aspects of our subconscious during ayahuasca rituals, which can lead us to strange and dark places. The ability to recenter yourself, however, depends on your ability to recall your goal and what motivated you to explore or heal in the first place.
2. The guiding principle
Even though interpreting an ayahuasca ceremony is a “tricky” process that some people advise while others strongly advise against, having an intention can help you make sense of it the following day.
3. The anchoring
Setting objectives, especially when dealing with a plant teacher like ayahuasca, can be incredibly grounding.
Some people have the intention of being more specific about what they hope to learn or solve from the encounter.
Before your ayahuasca ceremony, how to set an intention
Make time to think about why you feel called to use ayahuasca in the days or weeks before your ceremony.
It might sound straightforward, but after giving it some thought, you might realize that it necessitates a deep examination of your life, personality, history, dreams, anxieties, and other aspects. Regarding how detailed the intention ‘should’ be, viewpoints differ, as they do with many other matters. Some advice keeping the intention general, while others advise being clear and explaining your motivations for seeking advice and healing from this plant spirit.
Consider a scenario in which you are unsure of how to set an intention or what you might want to emphasize in the ceremony. You could then set an intention that Ayahuasca and Your Highest Truth lead you to an experience that is in your best interests at that particular time. During that ceremonial experience, let whatever arises by your spirit’s demands flow. We have faith that you will get healing, education, and guidance in ways that will best serve your growth.
