Ayahuasca has been used by mental-health professionals as a catalyst to increase the effectiveness of psychotherapy. Ayahuasca sometimes allows for critical interventions when other modern therapies have failed.
Research suggests that Ayahuasca has been effective in healing people with:
- Drug addiction
- Childhood emotional trauma
- Feelings of panic and hopelessness
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Ayahuasca Ceremonies can help you gain a better understanding of any psychological problems that you might suffer from, including addiction and the underlying causes behind compulsions. Ayahuasca-induced super-consciousness can bring you to a new level of meditative introspection where you can process unconscious thoughts and memories. Buried memories of traumatic life events can be reprocessed, repaired and reordered into a new healthy perspective.
Some users might experience:
- Expansion of thought
- Unveiling of cultural bias
- Feelings of wonder and awe
- Conceptual thinking
- Deep mindfulness
- Focus on the present moment
- Feeling of unity and interconnectedness
- Stillness and clarity of mind
- Ego suppression
- Ego death
- Internal voice
- Communication with the subconscious
- Enhanced emotions
- Total recall of memories
Ayahuasca has incredible therapeutic value. Western psychotherapy and drugs often fail to get to the core issues of adults who still suffer psychologically from child abuse earlier in life. Ayahuasca can allow you to conjure up past traumas and relive them with their original emotional intensity, but experienced in the present. By this way, one comes to forgiveness, which allows the victim to come to terms with the trauma and attain peace. With Ayahuasca, it is possible to achieve this.
Ayahuasca acts as an inner magnifying glass and mirror that cuts through the mind’s sophisticated denial mechanisms. The psyche is opened up and you are made aware of your own subconscious negative thinking and feelings. You are confronted by your own inner self, not by an outside therapist or treatment. Ayahuasca forces you to see your reality for what it is and opens your eyes to the changes you need to make.
Addiction is as a multi-faceted illness involving both the mind and body. Ayahuasca acts on many levels to bring multi-dimensional healing. The healing experience integrate physical, psychological, and spiritual processes, leading to observable therapeutic benefits.
Ayahuasca will open up your subconscious mind where you will be able to see yourself more clearly and objectively, almost as if you were another person looking at and analyzing your problems with objective clarity. You become your own therapist. This can bring insights that allow you to make mental and emotional adjustments. You might also encounter inner guides or spirits or connect with God or Buddha.
Ayahuasca often brings repressed mental and emotional trauma to the surface where they can be addressed and healed. Ayahuasca can show you what you need to do to make a real and lasting change in your life. You will be compelled to let go of old injuries, injustices and resentments, making peace with yourself and forgiving others, allowing healing to take place.
Ayahuasca has been known to deliver miraculous healings, and it has been used for thousands of years in the Amazon by indigenous peoples to bring healing to their tribes and communities. Shamanic Ayahuasca Ceremonies would not still be around after thousands of years if they did not work.
Ayahuasca can help you with your inner psychological and emotional state, as it super-activates your brain’s limbic system and amygdala, where early emotional memories are stored, including deeply significant and traumatic memories, such as child abuse, an repressed memories that your conscious mind no longer has access to. Ayahuasca also super-activates the insular cortex, which connects the emotional memories of the amygdala with the neocortex, the alaytical part of the brain, which is also activated by ayahuasca. That is why Ayahuasca Ceremony will uncover and also help you address your deepest psychological and emotional core issues.
Ayahuasca can also help you to break bad habits and patterns. Early in life, traumatic events stamp a neural imprint pattern on the brain. Then through adulthood, every time we face a similar situation, this shortcut pattern is activated. For example, if you were once shot by a gun, you might subsequently become startled every time you hear a loud gun-like noise. It’s even worse with repeated trauma, as that will reinforce neural patterns and strengthen their connections.
Ayahuasca super-activates the brain regions (limbic system and amygdala,) where your emotional memories are stored, including memories that your conscious mind has forgotten. Ayahuasca also super-activates the neocortex, the conscious part of the new brain, thereby allowing you to analyze and override any entrenched patterns, and allowing new healthy patterns to be created. Many Ayahuasca Ceremony participants gain new perspectives on past experiences after uprooting old unhealthy thought and behavior patterns.
