This is taken from an email sent to participants after ceremonies so this is why it is written in this way
Remember to nourish yourselves, to do Yoga (especially Yin Yoga), make sweet baths and use them daily (recipe attached below), cleanse your house and yourself with Sage and Palo Santo, eat well, drink lots of water, cultivate a daily meditation practice, read books about spirituality, sing, dance and of course laugh, and make an altar (sacred place) in your house!
Music also creates a very beautiful connection for us. You can check out our Medicine Music Playlists and our meditations on our Sound Cloud here: https://soundcloud.com/user-88232026
Remember to keep your heart open and to pray to God, to the spirits of nature, to the guardians of nature and to life!
Peace Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
As you remember when we did this prayer before and after the ceremonies it was a little different than the above prayer - we were saying I am love, I am faith, I am hope - you could also say we are love or we are hope.
Let your heart open and allow the prayer to be sung through your soul. This is a beautiful outline above but feel free to make it up as you go.
When you are working with the I am you are effectively re-coding your mind and you soul and your body. If for example you are someone that deals with illness or with fear or doubts…. What happens is the Yage goes to the root cause and heals this but afterwards there are symptoms that will still continue to come up. When you feel these symptoms of illness remind yourself I am health until you have fully re-coded yourself or I am courage or I am trust and so on.
Remember if there is one thing to fill you heart with….. Fill it with the Great Spirit - Fill it and fill it and then you will realize that is was already filled with the Great Spirit.
Its very important to remember what the Grandfathers and Grandmothers say Think of God and think beautifully!
The more you can throughout the day remind yourself to think beautifully or to think of God - Remember this and the mantras above are an affirmation - As you say them in that moment you are thinking beautifully or thinking of God it is not some end goal that you are working towards.
The more you work with these Mantras the more you will live your life this way. Thinking beautifully is effectively saying to live one’s life from the way of the Soul instead of the way of the ego. Remember the Soul lives from oneness whereas the Ego lives from division. What is the Great Spirit - Here are some of the many great qualities of truth that we can open ourselves to as we think of God - Attached below is Ajai Alai Mantra which is a Mantra with sufi origin to illuminate oneself. To wake up the sacred names and sacred energies of God.
Spiritual Payments are a key part of the integration after Ayahuasca ceremonies - Remember that Spiritual Payments can come in many forms from a one minute spiritual payment where you go outside and light some sage or sing a song or poem or prayer for Mother Nature or the payment can be a day, week or month long.
But why do we make Spiritual Payments? Well the main purpose of the payment is to give Gratitude and Thanks for Mother Nature and the Great Spirit! It is they that have given us everything already and we forget to say Thank You! So this is why we make our payments.
Spiritual Payments can be Spiritual Fasts - The fast can be a fast of food or can be a fast of your actions of a fast of your words or thoughts. As an example today to give thanks to Mother Earth I will only think beautiful thoughts or this week I will only do kind actions.
A great spiritual payment is to connect with a sacred body of water or a mountain and to spend a day or a few days there making offerings such as poems, songs, incense, yoga, meditations and whatever else your heart feels called to offer. The more often the better. You are also welcome to weave in an intention for your healing or for the healing of another but predominantly it is just to give thanks.
It is very important to keep the connections with the Spirits, with the Animal Guides, the Ancestors, the Gods and Goddesses. If you say oh I came to ceremony and saw the spirits of nature and many celestial beings and then I left ceremony and they were gone then you are missing the point. They are always here with us!
One way to keep this connection strong is to find a nature ally around your house or somewhere nearby and to visit with them daily for connection and guidance. We often like to work with a tree but remember that it is not just the tree that you go outside to connect with but you connect with the Soul of the tree and then beyond that the family of the tree. Which is a sort of Spiritual Family with a purpose for existence and a particular way to guide your soul.
Go outside and connect with that tree or a particular nature ally which could be the wind or the sun and speak to them. The connection is always very clear and open you can at any time dial 1-800-GrandfatherWind or 1-800-GrandmotherOcean - It is a direct line and the elements and spirits of nature are always very happy to answer our call and direct us back to our heart and the truth.
It is very important to remember that the medicine is still working with you for three months after the ceremonies so you may still have reactions. At times you may feel drunkenness or have visions or further consultations or different reactions of the body but stay calm, stay in peace and keep placing everything in the hands of the Great Spirit it is all part of your healing!

Throughout the year we generally have time for 2-4 private ceremonies throughout the year - This are extremely special opportunities to have a ceremony just for yourself or for you and your family or a small group of people.
This year we have space for one more private ceremony - For more details about this email eli at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember that it is great to come to this work for our own healing but the purpose of this life is to be in service!
We won’t be able to keep working with these plants with the way we are destroying Mother Nature - if there is anyway you can get involved with conservation projects or ways to support this beautiful planet please do! Here are two great NGO’s we like to work with;
https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/ ; https://www.junglekeepers.com/
Remember to keep working with Gratitude because everything that happens in our lives is through the will and grace of Mother Nature and the Great Spirit and so everything is from love and for our evolution.
If you need support especially during this time or at another time please reach out to someone on the team (myself included)!
Eli offers Zoom sessions with healing work - using the sacred Icaros, and all the healing elements from the ceremonies. As well we work with meditation guidance and consultation for your life.
These are very deeply healing sessions and are on a very limited basis.
We love you all so much
We look forward to seeing you again soon!!
God bless you, God guard you and God protect you always!
