Beyond the Ceremony has been created with the intention of supporting those drawn to plant Medicine (be it before the first ceremony or after the 100th) in keeping up the continuous spiritual development the Medicines offers in order to fulfill our higher purpose.

Some of the most important pieces that I’ve taken out of the last round of work regard judgement and communication. I’ve come to believe that often the judgement itself (which purges like a prickly, rough energy) is often worse than the actual emotion trapped underneath (and can coat something in a very uncomfortable way on the way out of the body.)

Alright – here’s my energetic nerd-out. I’m going into detail about the actual spiritual development techniques we’re using along the way here (many are new to me – coming in on direct intuitive and higher self feeds). So this is long, but if you’re into this work, I wanted you to be able to play with some of this at home.

The spiritual development/shamanic apprenticeship pace has been moving at a speed I’d only experienced while living in Peru in active Ayahuasca ceremony. But for a person who is in a life purpose apprenticeship, the training never stops. It takes twists and turns, ebbs and flows, and cycles in some dramatic full circles. But it never stops.

The Apprenticeship Never Stops
So here we are again, with a new, crazy leg of the journey I have never experienced before. While I’m only in physical Ayahuasca ceremony a few times a year these days (last ones were over a year ago) the apprenticeship and spiritual development path never stops. In fact, learning how to recognize the process outside of ceremony is vital (because it’s the same process that happens in the body whether people work in the Medicine or not – just accelerated in ceremony.) But with strong intent on this path, 250 ceremonies under my belt, and an unrelenting faith in myself and my purpose, this last month has moved just as fast (if not faster) than living in Peru. But this time I know more, and am doing it a different way.
I spent a lot of years neglecting the body and underestimating its vital role in our spiritual process. It’s literally the medium that we experience our lives through – and getting to know its tendencies as an individual is imperative to being able to understand what’s happening for us on a higher plane.
I once heard in Ayahuasca ceremony, you can only go spiritually as far as you can physically.

Spiritual friendships (aka – friendships that have been clearly made manifest from powers beyond are own) are one of the greatest gifts to humanity, especially on this path. Recognizing their true value helps so much. Because this shit is hard enough.

Arrogance, as an aspect of the defense system we call as a unit “ego”, is a particularly hard one to see from the inside out. It’s effectively a blind spot, a veil over the eyes – we the one suffering from blinding arrogance truly doesn’t believe they are arrogant – they just believe they are right (and this is not a judgement – this is me speaking from personal experience!)
