As you prepare to do your first Ayahuasca, it is normal to feel a bit nervous. However, as long as the retreat center provides you a safe environment that has many helpers, you don’t have to worry about anything. If you are planning for your Peru ayahuasca trips, you want to know first what to expect from this life-changing and transformative experience.
Preparing for an Eye-Opening Experience
With the Ayahuasca ceremony, you will be taken into the universe within you where you can see a lot of things about your life and self and the world. During the ceremony, you concentrate on your purpose for joining and Ayahuasca responds. Sometimes, you can expect that the Ayahuasca medicine may have something to show you that is different from what your intentions.
When you come to the ceremony, it is important to surrender to what the experience provides you. Always know that the medicine works for your healing and enlightenment. Your Ayahuasca shamans will take care of you through the entire experience. They know exactly what they are doing.
Letting It Go During the Ceremony
People who take part in an Ayahuasca ceremony usually feel like they are going to die. But, nobody has ever died from the retreat. So it is necessary to trust the process and allow it to happen. This lets you make the most out of your Ayahuasca experience.
That feeling of losing your breath is actually the moment of experiencing the ego death. Not all people can experience because some may get their egos out of the way of the Ayahuasca experience. Those who experience are actually trying to hold on and scared of going into places where there is no ego.
Just let go of the feeling like you have to be in control. Allow Ayahuasca to show you how wonderful the universe within you is.
Experiencing Slightly Compromised Motor Skills
While in the ceremony, you may feel that your motor skills are a bit compromised. You might need help when going to the bathroom but helpers are there to assist you. This lack of motor skills is not actually so bad that you cannot do basic things or what you have to do. And this effect will last just for two to four hours. Ayahuasca only affects your walking and never your normal bodily functions so you can peace of mind knowing you are fine.
