I’m going to do my best to put a trip that was indescribable into words.
Two years I found out about Ayahuasca. I set my intention that when I do it, I’ll be in the jungle of Peru.
The trip was set for the end of January. As time got closer to the day of departure I began doing a lot of research on the diet and the medicine, and sitting in meditation to find my intention for this experience. I was very strict with my diet. Raw vegetables and fruits, lots of water, brown rice, and eggs. One night, as I was hanging a tapestry on the wall of my new home, it hit me hard. My intention for going was to have visions of what world peace looks like. Wow!
I finished packing, one backpack for my 11-day journey, and was on my way to the airport. I’ve never had so much peace in my life about the mission I was embarking on.
Luke picked us up at the airport and walked us, through the rain, to a small car that took us to a hotel where the rest of the crew was waiting for us. We received welcoming hugs and had an amazing breakfast. Then 11 of us jumped on a well-ventilated bus into the unknown. It was all our first time experiencing Peru. The ride lasted two hours and it was the best ride of my life. The rain poured down, the window was open, and I felt just the breeze on my face the whole way. We came to a stop and the world around me was as if out of a movie.
We transferred our bags to one boat and we got on a different one. At this point the realization settled in, I’m going to a magical secluded land, deep in the jungle. This ride was as magical as the bus ride. I looked at the homes on the land as we rode by and waved at natives going about their normal lives. We were tourists for sure.
About 45 minutes later, the boat docked where we were greeted by a group of children playing instruments. Nancy stood at the top of the stairs, hugging us one by one and welcoming us to her property. I just stepped into my heaven. The property is absolutely gorgeous. I had no idea what to expect upon arriving, but it certainly wasn’t this. My expectations were greatly exceeded.
We all joined together in the main house first and then we were given the keys to our rooms. The space was big, homey, well-ventilated, and quiet. The songs of the birds echoed. I was led to my room and again my expectations were greatly exceeded. The room was huge! Two beds, a sitting area, a front porch, a closet, very tall roofs and the best of all, a mosquito net around my bed. The bathroom was spacious and everything was spotlessly clean.
I walked back to the main house for lunch. We sat down, 4 per table, our places set with beautiful folds in the napkins and fresh juice on the table. We were served a beautiful salad, so colorful and refreshing, followed by white fish, rice, beans and a potato. The food was so beautifully prepared, the portions were substantial and we got fresh cut fruit for dessert. My favorite meal was breakfast. We started with oatmeal. The very best oatmeal in the world, I’m convinced. Many times I asked for a second serving. The oatmeal was followed by scrambled eggs, white rice, beans, and ended with fresh fruit. The food is one of the things I miss the most.
The service was impeccable, literally. The staff was the most professional I’ve experienced on a trip. They acted on our needs intuitively. They kept the space immaculate. They served us with grace and love. By the end of the trip, we were sharing hugs and playing music together. I felt safe and secure with them. I trusted them completely to be around my things in my room.
I experienced 4 out of 5 ceremonies. I didn’t experience one because of some information that came through for me in my third one. I have never felt so much love in my life. I’ve never felt so much strength and clarity about my purpose in this world. I heard the voice of God so clearly and grounded to Mother Earth like never before. My experience with the medicine gave me my intention of seeing visions of world peace. The biggest thing I got out of the ceremonies was that I’m going to be working with kids, and in my third ceremony the whole program came through about what it looked like. I went back to my room that night and wrote it all down. Another lesson I learned was strength, my strength was really tested and I learned how I can be strong in every moment. I learned gratitude is the key to prosperity, and I learned to always, ALWAYS, trust my intuition. Even when my ego doesn’t know the reason, I get to trust.
There’s so much more I could share but I feel the need to wrap up now. I am continuing my journey with the plants for the rest of my life.
