Alright kids….well, the day has arrived. I am off to Peru today to drink the Ayahuasca vine and find my spirit, apparently. Should be interesting. I hope she’s a ravishing beast with the appearance of a young Raquel Welch (you youngins’ can look her up. She was lovely in her day). The diet of no booze, sex (this includes your own work), phone, tv, internet (cheating here) and limited food has been torture. Ugh. I was in bed reading by 7:30pm every night because that was the only thing i COULD do. I am rather psyched and a little freaked. Not about the journey, that should be fun, but tripping out on a hallucinagenic in the middle of the Peruvian jungle, whilst looking for my soul, is a wee bit intense, no? I have heard phenomenal things about the experience. Life-changing stuff. We’ll see. I believe the idea is that the “healing medicine” of the Ayahuasca opens a door in your psyche so that you are able to go back and look at your life…..address any issues and traumas that you may have that are holding you back. Saw a documentary on it and a woman who had a very messed up childhood came back a completely different woman. All the trauma was removed. She saw life in a different way. All the demons were gone. COOL! Who’s not up for that? Count me in! Not that i had huge life-cripling drama, but we’ve all got demons that hold us back. I don’t know about you but my parents were horrible at their roles as parents, so i’ve got a few “chinks in the china,” if you will. Who doesn’t?
So, this is it for a couple weeks. No electricity or flushing toilets. We live in little screened huts. I will update you when i get back. IF i get back. What if I’m eaten by some wild jungle cat? Or i go all looney and choose to live in the trees with the monkeys? It could happen. But i kinda doubt it.
Be good. Play safe, and be kind to each other.
