Julian and I are gearing up to drive up to Sequoia Park to experience our very first Ayahuasca ceremony. The ceremony will be over the weekend under the New Moon in Leo. Ayahuasca is a form of plant medicine indigenous to the amazons of South America. It isn't a "high" or a trip, is a ceremony, an experience. The Ayahuasca vines is a Spirit which when consumed in tea form during ceremony takes you to the highest and the lowest places within you. It's a inner journey. A friend said to me, "Ayahuasca shows you your heaven and hell" I responded with, "I'm looking forward to it". I'm also looking forward to sharing this experience with my mate. Divine timing played all the right cards with this one. For this shaman to decide to come here, on a weekend we both were free on, during a New Moon and to Sequoia national park. We meant to go camping at Sequoia Park a couple of years ago on a road trip couldn't make it, and now here we are about to go camping at Sequoia Park for our Ayahuasca ceremony. I love how the universe is always conspiring in our favor.
A friend said to me, "You Aquarians are always running away from something". Maybe that's true, but I also see it as running towards my life. When I left Florida to come to California on my own 8 years ago, to the people I knew it seemed like I was running away from my life. They were right, I was running away from my old life and running towards a new one. If I'm running away from something is only to run towards something better. I'm always running towards new experiences, new places, new people, new opportunities... my bags are always packed. Stability, safety and security is a state of mind. I am stable, safe and secure wherever I go. My Root Chakra game is strong!
There are some residual energies from the past that have been coming to the surface lately and I'm ready for this Ayahuasca ceremony to show me what that's all about and how to shut that fucking door for good. As much as I love dead things, I also believe the dead should stay dead and buried. Being haunted by the ghosts of past experiences is not how I want to spend my time. The past ain't no friend of mine.
