With ayahuasca there is a pronounced afterglow, of which I am conscious of for two to three weeks, sometimes longer. I have a palpable sense that all is well with the world, a sense of being effortlessly at home in my body, of being fully and easily present. Emotional perturbations are likely to be more short-lived. Coming back to center seems to occur on its own. After the last session, I experienced a very subtle bu. persistent sense of spaciousness as if a refreshingly cool mentholated breeze were blowing through my body. I didn't have to summon it up. It was there. All I had to do was notice it.

Seven weeks after the medicine session I had an extraordinary dream in which my ego was like a fiddle being played by Spirit (Higher Self). Even more spectacular was the fully orchestrated symphony I heard. The music was crystal clear, ethereal, exquisitely wrought. Since I can neither read nor write music, I was left wondering who the composer was. I felt like a Beethoven or a Mozart walking around with spontaneously orchestrated symphonies in my head. I also realized, while still dreaming, that the dream was metaphorical.

After the ayahuasca sessions, I feel cleansed within, throughout, and all about. I have a sense of having been healed at all levels, especially the physical. The ayahuasca medicine seems to have a special affinity for the gastrointestinal system: it snakes its way through the body, seeking out and eliminating obstructions to life energy flow. I sometimes think of it as a form of kundalini, a Liquid Plum'r for the soul. For cleansing and healing, for reconnecting with the vegetable kingdom, ayahuasca is definitely my medicine of choice.
