1. You don’t have to be prepared to drink it:
On the preparation that one needs to drink this magic plant, much has been said: "you have to fast for a certain time", "you should not eat meat", "or you have to wear white ", etc etc. However, after knowing the ancient ways of the Cofan people, custodians of this sacred plant in the Amazon, and directly asking the elders (shamans) how is the best way for one to be ready, they answered: "Yage or Ayahuasca is unconditional, it does not demand anything from You, but it is good to come to this power with respect, humility, tranquility and joy; and It will give you exactly what you need to be better. We prefer to eat enough to be strong and able to sustain its power better, but the most important thing is that you feel sincerely comfortable and as confident as possible to receive this sacrament of the jungle.”
2. Everything that Ayahuasca / Yage shows you is not exactly true:
Many people get confused because this medicine shows them ugly things and they come to believe that they are the answers for their life. For example: if you see a loved one dying, or an accident, etc., it is common to hear people manifesting these visions as answers to their lives; but we want to tell you a little about the nature of this sacred plant: It purges you: when we drink it, the spirit of Yage / Ayahuasca prepares your whole being to give you exactly what you need. In order to do so, it does a kind of cleansing or purges everything you no longer need within you. Therefore, you may experience vomiting, diarrhea, other times crying, among other possibilities. Likewise, It takes out of your mind what you do not need, thus it is normal to see fears, dense memories, sad experiences, etc., which are not exactly the answers, but a relentless way that the yage / ayahuasca has to transmute everything that does not let you be well, and after all of this comes the calm and true answers.
3. How to identify a true answer from yage / ayahuasca?
Sometimes we have heard some people say to others: "Ayahuasca told me to tell you…." but what the yage/ayahuasca needs to tell you, it does it direct and does not need intermediaries. You identify Its answers for you because they are completely clear , you have no doubts and you experience peace.
