Ways To Spiritually Cleanse Before Using Plant Medicines

Before incorporating the knowledge of advanced plant teachers, one should take measures to cleanse the body appropriately through diet and exercise. What goes into the body determines what the body will be composed of physically, mentally, and spiritually. This simple and often overlooked observation is one of the most important aspects of astral exploration. The vessel must be adequately equipped to handle whatever may occur while in the spiritual realms. Body and mind exist in a symbiotic relationship, where the effects on one will reflect on the other. It goes without saying that taking steps to prepare the body means that the mind is of sound health. Depending on which plant teachers you engage, the intensity and length of body preparation should vary accordingly.

Ayahuasca can be engaged in the traditional setting in a vast variety of geographic locations throughout the globe. Depending on the initiates intention of using ayahuasca, different diet steps should be taken. Many traditional diets share common similarities but each initiate will know what they need to abstain from to gain the maximum knowledge possible from the experience. Common themes include abstinence from alcohol, sugar, salt, oils, meat and certain spices. Consumption of raw foods is also highly recommended as processing diminishes the nutritional content of the food. It is also common in some locales for initiates of ayahuasca to cease sexual thoughts and activities during the course of the diet and experience. There are reasons for this abstinence that are highlighted in greater detail here. For plant teachers such as Peyote and Psilocybin, a similar diet should be applied.

Roughly 4 hours before engaging in any plant teacher, one should begin holding back desires to eat. Attempting to digest a plant teacher with other foods in the stomach can cause the initiate to undergo physical stress. It is recommended by the sages of TIMEWHEEL that the initiate disengage from the integration of meat and animal products into their bodies for weeks prior to, during and after the spiritual journey. During a pilgrimage into the spiritual realms, one may encounter the spirits of beings that they have consumed and face the true nature of negative karma firsthand. For this reason, it is also recommended that initiates withhold from themselves whatever it is they may be struggling to let go of in their lives. Attachment will create negative karma, thus temporary separation from those things which we feel we cannot live without will only serve to enlighten us. If one struggles with addictive behavior, one should surrender that behavior prior to encountering the plant teacher if they wish to maximize their knowledge from the plant. Both before and after an experience, one should make a conscious effort to alter behavior that one considers negative.

Shamanic Energy Work


Shamanic energy transformation is a technique reaching the source of your existence where quick and deep changes can occur. Its underlying principle is that our emotional, genetic and karmic history can leave dense or heavy imprints in our light bodies field, which can create mental problems, emotional, energetic and physical dysfunctions.

The word shaman literally means “he or she who knows.” Shamanism is a universal healing style that has not changed in any significant way for thousands of years and is not bound to any particular form of spirituality or religion. It is based on the first two divine laws – the principle of Mentalism and the principle of Correspondence – dedicated to diagnose and cure human suffering – whether emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual. Shamans act as a medium between the physical and spiritual realms and recognize that all objects are alive and therefore in their essence changeable.

The shaman enters an altered state of consciousness, the spirit world, in order to connect more directly with the pure soul of the client or with the forces causing trouble for the client. In this state it is possible to transform the existing energies, to increase strength and clarity, to guide you where you have lost your orientation, and remove lingering negative energies.

In a shamanic mirror experience the client has the opportunity to meet the soul’s energetic vibration of a beloved one – living or dead – in order to resolve old issues, increase the flow in love and remove stuck feelings, in a face to face encounter.

Shamanic Energy Transformation is helpful for:

  • When you feel stuck in a behavioral pattern which continues to repeat itself.
  • When you are struggling to heal from pain that is part of your ancestry.
  • When you need to remove emotional traumas or karmic imprints from your past.
  • To break habits that are creating negative manifestations in your life.
  • To find freedom from feelings of low vibration as fear, anger, rage, jealousy, self-worth issues and insecurity.
  • To deepen the individuals spiritual experience in life.
  • To more thoroughly enjoy yourself, others and life in general.
