Ayahuasca The Spirit World Revealed


This clip was from the conversations I had with Michael Thornhill Co-Founder of Casa Galactica a psychedelic retreat center for trauma and healing. In this discussion he explains the meaning he has come to know and understand about the plant based medicines used, the many other plant medicines and ofcourse what he means when he talks about inter-dimensional beings.

The Visions Explained

People who use this substance often report encounters with multi-dimensional beings or entities. These experiences are intensely personal and subjective, varying greatly from person to person. Commonly reported entities include various animal spirits, such as snakes, spiders, panthers, and big cats, each symbolizing different aspects. For instance:

  1. Panthers are seen as powerful and protective, symbolizing courage, valor, and power. They are associated with feminine energy, death and rebirth, and have a healing potential at a cellular level.
  2. Snakes are commonly encountered and can symbolize rebirth, transformation, fertility, and a creative life force. Despite their sometimes intimidating appearance, they are often seen as a sign of healing in the spiritual aspect.
  3. Spiders represent creativity, balance, strength, and gentleness. They are linked with the idea of weaving realities and remind us of the interconnectedness of all life.
  4. Big Cats, like jaguars or tigers, symbolize strength and power. Encounters with them often reflect personal growth and open communication​​.

The Stories Told

You may have heard about the psychedelic journey’s people have been through, the ancient brew has been a guide for humanity a long time. The experience comes with a lot of work, preparation and commitment so these conversations with trained guides such as Michael help paint a picture of not just what it’s like but how it brings about life changing events. The event as Michael put “it’s catalytic” very explosive and has the potential to shape your future in a positive way.

The Potential For Growth

Ayahuasca experiences can lead to profound shifts in consciousness. Users often report feeling a deep connection to their entire being – physical, emotional, and spiritual. This can include heightened senses, access to memories and feelings, and transformative experiences such as spiritual surgeries or encounters with deities from various cultures. These experiences are described as expanding consciousness and can bring about feelings of unity, transcendence, and insights into personal and spiritual growth​​.

The Loss Of Self: Discovering True Identity

Another significant aspect of these experiences is “ego death” or ego dissolution. This is a state where one’s sense of self, including identity, beliefs, memories, and emotions, dissolves. This can lead to feelings of unity, interconnectedness, and a broader, more altruistic perspective on life. Ego death can be both disorienting and transformative, leading to deep insights and spiritual awakening. It’s worth noting that while ego death can be induced by the active chemical DMT, it’s not unique to it and can occur through other means such as meditation or the use of other psychedelics​​.

It’s important to note that these experiences can be intense and sometimes frightening, which is why they are traditionally undertaken in the presence of experienced guides or in a ritualistic context. The experience and interpretation of these encounters are deeply personal and can vary widely among individuals.

It’s always been a question in my mind as to what people were talking about when they spoke of other beings near them while on these psychedelic trips, I’ve also heard many mention the same tale on DMT. Hopefully in this episode we can gain some insight into what that means exactly.

Thanks for reading, listening and watching.
