While everyone’s experience of working with plants will be different and unique, there are common themes that are often repeated. Ayahuasca is often described as a visionary plant; it has the ability to open one’s vision. It is sometimes associated with the feminine, because of the ways in which it works: ethereal, flowing, dancing, changing, symbolism, mystery, night. Although in reality, as the Shipibo would say, it is Oni or ¨knowledge¨, the joining of both the masculine and feminine. Tobacco tends to be complimentary. It is sometimes seen as a masculine force: a grandfather, strong, direct, powerful, clear, concise, stable.
This is why dietas are a lot of work and not necessarily “fun”. Healing can be smooth or messy (usually both); this simply reflects the reality of what is being addressed. In a medicine circle, all that is authentic is redeemed and ultimately appreciated. The benefits in engaging this process include a purified, strengthened, and renewed spiritual self. From spirit comes the deepest source of well-being, a self-confidence arising from engagement with the real and the truthful. This is felt as a bliss beyond the usual pleasure-button pushing/pain avoidance strategies of hedonism, and certainly well beyond the Puritan denial of the body’s urge towards physical pleasure. It is a spiritual law that one gets what one pays for. The harder the work, the sweeter the ecstasy. The universe rewards courage (and punishes stupidity). The plants teach the evolution Game, and how to play it successfully. It is a wisdom of transfomation, a gift to humanity, and it is here for the asking.
