The path to the master plant Ayahuasca and the therapeutic use of medicinal plants
The apprentice students of Shamanism and Curanderismo must dedicate a prudential time of two years for their training under the observation of their maestros shamans who are guided by the teachings of their wise ancestors.
During this time, knowledge about medicinal plants, their properties and the forms of healing that can be carried out will be received.
It is very important to recognize the inner energies of the being.
There are many shamanic cultures that recognize a living being as a great spirit that is in turn sustained by other spirits of different vibrations and frequencies.
Causes and symptoms of energy imbalance, different in each stage of life.
Extreme emotions, feelings, affections of the soul, disorders of the mind affect human beings in their destiny of happiness and well-being. In the shamanic path, these aspects are worked on to avoid greater imbalance, as well as the protection and cleaning of the space where one is going to work.
Shamanic therapy for spiritual healing • “Call the healing spirits or doctors”
These techniques and knowledge inherited by the grandfathers and grandmothers include the cleaning of space, these spiritual light forces are called through the songs icaros or prayers.
Clean and pure energy is trapped so that the body is reunited and nourished at the highest frequency.
The pachamama represents the earth and how a mother is always taking care of her children, but we have distanced ourselves from her heart. We have to return to the reunion with our mother, because we are orphans.
And we must integrate Pachamama in our hearts.
The Ayllu is the relationship that we human beings have with our ancestors.
And also the relationship of parents and children in this course of existence.
These are the invisible beings or ancestors of the spiritual nature.
The Shamans recognize the importance of spiritual offerings and ceremonies with the power the plants such as Ayahuasca and San Pedro provide.
Also, in the shamanic practice, the maestros teach how to recognize the contrary or adverse spirit that sickens and others that heal.
And, it is taught to live better through universal knowledge received with the Ayahuasca and San Pedro power plants to live free of trauma, fear or anger, while recognizing the divinity in you.
The ancient sacred medicine Ayahuasca in its wisdom, teaches us co-parenting in our relationships with and among all human beings, turning our feelings to conscious observation, listening to the wisdom of Pachamama in a time space of healing.
All medicinal plants are recognized as living beings that emit information to our living cells for personal transformation.
The exchange of offerings to the Pachamama
This is the expression of reciprocity for the balance of Pachamama as a relationship with cosmic tutelary beings.
In shamanic practice, the medicine of silence, sound and color is practiced.
I connect with mother earth, water, fire and wind to give space to my body of light and have more clarity.
The human being is time and space as a primordial law.
The 333 of time and the 4 fundamental emanations (air, water, fire and earth elements) come together in perfect harmony.
Medicinal plants (Ayahuasca)
Medicinal plants are living beings and are daughters of the Pachamama. They remind us and teach us how to heal others and heal ourselves.
They are representatives in a birth, in a union, in a departure. They can be in a physical, emotional or spiritual imbalance.
The spirit of the plants modifies the energetic frequency and moves the unfavorable vibrations away, giving rise to the elevation in the level of consciousness.
When we sing the icaros taught by our maestros , we balance ourselves wrapped in a vibrational blanket that goes beyond the limits of the rational mind and allows us to access the cosmic infinity of creation. In this way, we harmonize the energy centers, releasing dense energy, stagnant emotions and allow a conscious reconnection with our Sonqo (heart chakra) and with the universe.
The smoke that transforms (mapacho tobacco)
The connection with the smoke is an Ancestral Tradition of all the shamanic communities of the world. It has the purpose of changing the frequency of our energy and taking us to a higher consciousness, helping to connect our spiritual world.
Smoke cleanses, heals, protects and aligns our Spirit.
Everything is alive and everything aligns in perfection when you understand the spiritual world of the nature of plants.
