Many wonder – does the Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca show imaginations, or opens door to the spirit realms, or transports one to other dimensions?
Generally, humans make ‘judgments’ when perceiving reality. In-fact, the gap-filling process is the basis of human perception. The Holy Medicine reduces intensity of ‘source monitoring’, i.e. judging the source of what is perceived. Source monitoring is a learned behaviour, and culturally determined. the Holy Medicine renders this judgment process as invalid, and reveals ‘what is’, removing a veil of preconceived notions, ideas, revealing the ultimate truth to the individual, directly, experientially, which stands as self-proved.
The Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca teaches “Life is Magical”
The ‘spirits’ shown by the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca, the ‘Visions’, and what is seen in the luminous fused space are indeed spirits – even departed loved ones – teaching what one doesn’t know.
The Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca uses human’s visual imagination capability as raw material to construct the outwards manifestation of an inner reality. The Holy Medicine helps brings Socrates daemon into reality, to teach or terrify, constructed by ambiguous forms.
Mythologizing the daily life and considering the real-world as magical is has been referred to as “Soul-making” by Hillman. He considers everyone as a spirit, by Soul-making.
Regardless whether one believes that they were imagining, or being transported, or had opened the door to spiritual realms – what matters is whether one learns what was taught through the encounters and whether one will take the chances in life necessary to bring transformation into their lives and into the world through the role that they play in their ‘magical and mythical life’.
