Plants were discovered, through the human life cycle on this planet, to have an immense amount of power, which is the reason why a many species of plants are banned.
It is a well known FACT that these specific forms of medicine illuminate and generate energetic frequencies that are sensitive to the human body, mind, and Spirit... and for these reasons, it is no coincidence that possession is restricted.
Those who are familiar with EArth medicine practices are aware that plants contain Spirits, also known as the Devas, of which assists with specific healing tasks. Medicine people understand the importance of communication with plant Spirits, as it is how their energy becomes activated and directed. All plant Spirits, especially those plant Spirits that are assigned to assist in cosmic un/conscious awareness must be treated with great respect. With all plant medicine, a Human heart to Deva heart to Source connection should always be made prior to activating it's healing powers. It is important to cultivate the plant Spirit from inception (if possible), and communicate with it from it's seed point to the point of complete growth and intake. Always respectfully request to allow it's presence within you. Listen. If plant Spirit and the Universe says 'No' -- you have to respect that. If plant Spirit and the Universe say 'Yes,' respectfully request, through the guidance of the Universe to allow it's medicine to directly target the area of consciousness that needs alignment-- whether it is your blood cells, your skin, hair, energy points, and/or your un/conscious body. Respectfully request that it's medicine spark the results needed for you to heal at the intensity that is needed by you at that moment.
It is very important to have great respect and honor for our beautiful plant queen/kingdom. It is when there is a disconnect-- a lack of respect that plant Spirit does not work in a manner that is suited for you.
All connections, especially those that open portals into alternate dimensions, must be initiated carefully, with an immense amount of love, gratitude and respect for the Spirit--- and also under the guidance of the Universe. It is important to always activate this process-- I cannot stress this enough. I personally feel that journeys taken within the other world require support from your guides. Growing up in a Shamanic home, I was taught that the other world may not be safe, especially if your frequency, upon entering it-- is not at it's highest. This creates a low frequency portal to open; thus, making one susceptible to low frequency beings, some of who do not like energies from this dimension to be present within their realm of existence. This is when cloaking is needed, either through one's direct practice or through the assistance of one's Guides. Cloaking is needed to protect the individual Soul from being attacked-- this is what oftentimes results in death within this dimension.
Many individuals do not understand this. It makes me feel very anxious when I think about how people are reckless with powerful plant medicine such as Ayahuasca, Peyote, Mescalito, and Cannabis. It is very disrespectful to our plant friends, and it is very disrespectful to one's soul... not to mention- its dangerous!!!!!! There are laws within other dimensions that need to be respected-- if you do not recognize these laws, or you enter these realms without appropriate heart and magnetic field elevations, and/or taking the appropriate steps to protect yourself-- you are asking for trouble.
I was having this exact conversation with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey (please see link posted below for more information on these two beautiful souls). Both of them invited me to their Church. I agreed to go; however, I do not agree to partake in this sacred ceremony, as I feel that I am not ready. I explained that I needed to really connect with the Devas, and connect with the Universe with regards to this specific form of journeying. A huge smile came upon their faces when I presented them with my explanation, as they understood exactly what I was talking about. This made my heart happy-- to know that as psychedelic spiritual practitioners, they were respectful of these specific energies and held a great amount of love and honor for plant Spirit. I wish more people were like this. I wish people would take the time to really understand this medicine-- whether it is Ayahuasca or any other plant medicine, such as plants used in tea, juices, etc. It is important to connect with the Spirit, ask if it is okay to ingest, and respectfully request that it's energy assist you under the supervision of what is most high... without this--- the energy will not be the same, and may even create an unhealthy response.
I feel that I also have to say that I respect the fact that sometimes dark journeys need to be taken so that the Soul can break through certain energy barriers that are embedded within the psyche. I wish to state that my intent is not to completely demonize a negative journey, as oftentimes, this may be the exact medicine that is be needed for that individual; however, my intent is to merely emphasize the importance of connecting, respecting, loving, honoring, and requesting that the energies one intakes serve them in the most divine manner. As a Healer/Curandera, it is my responsibility to advise everyone of this very sacred process. I am merely respecting the Universe' request in advisement.
I also wish to state that many forms of plant medicine may not be accepted within a particular location. For example, if you reside within the United States, psychedelics are not legal, and one can get into trouble with the law if they are found to be in possession of these "substances." I wish to also state, that there may be federal exceptions to this rule. I have read that there are exceptions to being in possession or in use if one is recognized as a 1st American Indigenous tribal member, or if one is enrolled in a specific church/spiritual domain that incorporates psychedelic spiritual practices; guidelines pertaining to possession and ingestion may not apply to individuals who meet these elements. Please explore this information further if you would like more detail. It is also important to keep in mind that not all law enforcement agencies will initially respect exemptions, and immediate action may be taken against one, so it is always best practice to be cautious with this specific form of medicine. I cannot emphasize enough for one to please review the laws of their country prior to being in possession or "under the influence" of any psychedelic medicine.
I am also so thankful that this specific form of EArth medicine has assisted in healing those who have been intrapsychically wounded. I have so much love and respect for all Warriors. Thank you plant medicine for assisting them as best as you can so that they may recuperate from their heart breaking, intrapsychic shattering experiences. I want to take a moment, and respectfully request that we send endless love to all Warriors, and EVERYONE who has ever experienced trauma in their lives. May their heart, mind, body, and Soul be eternally blessed with the Divine so that they may heal and be aware that they are One Love.
