The Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca is a miraculous Plant-based Sacred Medicine which has been used in the Amazons over millennia for mainly spiritual, physical, and mental healing. The Holy Medicine is believed to be ‘Mother of all Medicine,’ and a divine gift from the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca.
The Holy Medicine – An Ancient Holy Solution to Modern-day Problems
The indigenous people of Amazons consider the Holy Medicine as a pathway to heaven. The Holy Banisteriopsis Caapi Vine is the main ingredient of Holy Medicine which enables Shamans to learn from the Plant World. Many other admixtures are added to the Holy Medicine with the Holy Banisteriopsis Caapi Vine, to access wisdom of various Holy Plants.
From ancient times, indigenous people of the Amazons consumed the Holy Medicine to understand complexities of nature and life and connect with local ecological environment. Shamans, under the influence of the Holy Medicine, engaged in communication with the Plant World to exchange feelings and energy. By doing so, they learnt from the Plants about various Plants and how to combine their properties for benefit of the people and achieve healing. Such has been recorded in Ancient India where the Science of Ayurveda and Siddha are time-honoured heritages where Healing Medicines are all mostly Plant based. This whole process of communication is more like exchanging information between two different worlds.
The Holy Medicine provides access to wisdom from the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca
Vera Froés, a Brazilian ethnobotanist, historian, and author of the book Santo Daime: Amazonian Culture, in her talk at AYA2019, responded to the question: “What are the plants telling us?”, by exploring the relationship that Shamans and healers have with the natural world, and also said “Shamanism is an ancient art of communication that indigenous people well understand”. According to her, nature is part of their family. They treat their surrounding as living beings. She also concluded that all beings on the planet come from the same DNA, the same creative source, and that if people were disconnected from it, the Plants give us coded messages which enable us to reconnect ourselves with the Mother Earth, the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca.
The author of ‘Unraveling the Mystery of the Origin of Ayahuasca’ Gayle Highpine, who lived among the Napo Runa and Pastaza Runa communities and documented the local usages and the stories of the origin of the Holy Medicine recorded that according to the Napo Runa communities the Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca provides three main interrelated blessings, which are Healing, Divination, and allowing humans to connect with the Plant World to understand the Secrets of the Plant World and guide to live in harmony with Nature, by the Divine Blessings of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca.
The Holy Medicine of The Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca spread worldwide
Over the last few decades or so, the Holy Medicine has gone global with thousands of people traveling to South American countries to experience the blessings of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca.
Shamans. curanderos, healers are traveling abroad to arrange Sacred ceremonies globally. The divine wisdom of the plant world is now no longer limited to the Amazons only, it is spreading all around the world. With the growing demand and aim of Healing globally, the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca is reaching millions of people all over the world.
Pioneer scientific researcher of Holy Medicine, Dennis McKenna, a US ethnopharmacologist and younger brother of the legendary ethnobotanist and author Terence McKenna. Some years ago, in an article titled “Ayahuasca and Human Destiny” published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, McKenna emphasized the contribution the Holy Medicine can make to physical and spiritual healing. He wrote, “[the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] is the conduit to a body of profoundly ancient genetic and evolutionary wisdom that has long abided in the cosmologies of the indigenous peoples of the Amazons, who have guarded and protected this knowledge for millennia, who learned long ago that the human role is not to be the master of nature, but its stewards.” He also added, “Our destiny, if we are to survive, is to nurture nature and to learn from it how to nurture ourselves and our fellow beings. This is the lesson that we can learn from [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca], if only we pay attention.”
In an interview with The Guardian, he explained how Holy Medicine is changing the collective environmental consciousness. In response to the question: What can Holy Medicine do for the environmental movement? He explained, “I think a lot of people, especially if they come to South America, come away with a really renewed appreciation for our connection to and the importance of nature. I think that [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] is a catalytic influence in changing global environmental consciousness, which is something that’s got to happen if we’re going to get out of the mess, we’re in. The main challenge we have as a species is – getting on the soap-box for a minute – we have forgotten our connection to nature. We’ve come to the conclusion that we own nature, it exists for us to exploit, and we’re busy doing that. We’re destroying it in the process. We’re destabilizing all of these global mechanisms that keep the biosphere habitable by life. I think [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] is waking up a lot of people and reminding them that, “No, that’s not the way it is. You monkeys are not running the show. The plants are running the show by sustaining life on Earth if nothing else.” There needs to be a global shift of consciousness. People need to understand this before they can really begin to change, and so in that sense, I think [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] is an ambassador from the community of species. The message is basically, “Wake up, you monkeys! You’re wrecking the place!” It’s very important and interesting that so many people come away with this strong message that they’ve really been moved and touched by something that they feel is an intelligent entity – an intelligent representative of the natural world.”
In response to these questions: Why is that? Why does it make clear to people our connection to nature? How does it do that? He further dived into the matter, “I don’t think there is a scientific answer. It’s more like a philosophical answer or a spiritual answer. This is the challenge of our time: we have separated ourselves from nature, and we really need to re-understand that relationship, and as part of the community of species, which we are – we may deny it, we may forget it, but we are part of the community of species. And I think that the community of species is concerned about this problematic primate that they have let loose on the planet. As a species, we are simultaneously the most dangerous thing that has appeared in the course of evolutionary time, and we’re also the most promising. Indigenous people have this perspective that [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] and other plants are teachers. They exist to give us guidance and wisdom – and I believe that, actually. Indigenous people have been the stewards of the plants, the stewards of this knowledge, but I think that now things are getting desperate on a global scale in terms of the environmental catastrophes that are looming. I think there’s a sense in the community of species we’ve got to step up the game, and these are their tools to contact human beings and basically say, “Pay attention because you need to re-understand your relationship to nature,” and once that’s understood then you have to start making changes. I think one of the challenges of our species – one of our problems – is that we’re very, very clever. We can do amazing things with our big brains and our opposable thumbs, and our ability to use and create technology. No doubt that we’re clever. The problem is we’re not wise – and that’s the whole thing. I think the message from [the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca] and all these other Teacher Plants is, “Wise up.” Literally: “Get wise.” So that we can use the technologies we’ve invested in a way that supports and sustains life rather than threatens life. That’s really the message. It’s a profound message, but it’s a simple one.”
Learning to live in harmony with nature, with blessings of The Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca
It is not random or accidental that for thousands of years, the indigenous people of the Amazons have been living in the rainforest without destroying it; rather, they have well maintained it and increased the diversity of the rainforest. Amazon Rainforest is the result of the applied wisdom of the Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca , which has been passing through generation after generation of indigenous communities of the Amazons, and now in this current global crisis, the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca is providing Her kindness by allowing access to the Ancient Wisdom to all of humanity. Her kindness is immeasurable.
Humans need to learn fast
In a recent study, S. Yoshi Maezumi and her team showed that humans had a more profound effect on the supposedly “untouched” Rainforest than previously thought, introducing crops to new areas, boosting the number of edible tree species, and using fire to improve the nutrient content of the soil. The researchers found evidence of maize, sweet potato, manioc, and squash farming as early as 4,500 years ago in Eastern Brazil. If the people from the past can create the Amazon rainforest, with the Divine wisdom of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca, present can do it again all over the world and live in harmony with Nature.
The Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca, over recent years, have been kind to humanity, allowing the modern world to access Her Divine and Holy Wisdom through the Holy Medicine, which has become extremely popular Worldwide, and Her shamans, under Her Holy and Divine Blessings spread Her Healing and Wisdom to people worldwide.
