Life changing experiences are few and far between for most people; in fact, some may never experience them at all. Those that do sometimes swear that they have seen God, or perhaps have had some sort of intervention from another force entirely. In other scenarios, these experiences could be taken negatively or positively, but it’s a very different experience with ayahuasca.
DMT is a schedule I drug in the United States, meaning ayahuasca is utterly inaccessible. If you make your way to Peru, legality no longer becomes an issue.
But before you buy your ticket, let’s hear some personal testimonies from celebrities that have undertaken this adventure. You will find, however, that money and influence don’t need to be attained in order to understand your purpose in the world.
Acclaimed actor from Gossip Girl, Penn Badgley found himself with an indigenous tribe in the Colombian rainforest. When his body finally succumbed to the effects of ayahuasca, he described it as follows:
“I dropped into my heart, and I felt it in my blood and all of the discomfort and this mercurial nature of perceptual boundaries during these ceremonies seemed to melt away and all melt into one gleaming psychic arrow pointing towards my heart….and that was the simplest but, to this day, the most profound moment of my life.”
A musician by trade, Sting had a very well-known ayahuasca experience.
“I realized for the first time that this is the only genuine religious experience I have ever had.”
For people that haven’t had visions of the afterlife, or something to call a life-changing experience, ayahuasca seems to gently administer these sensations.
As the front man for the Black Crowes, Chris Robinson adds yet another musician to the repertoire of influential ayahuasca users. His thoughts:
“I was very lucky, eight or nine years ago, to have an ayahuasca experience. Even though a lot of my belief systems had let me up to that day, and believing in the esoteric realities of aggressive psychedelic and entheogen-driven experience, that was the literal opening up of all my minds and hearts. Where my mind and heart and soul all coalesce of having at least the initial understanding of the interconnectedness of all living entities in the universe, really.”
