In an instructional video entitled “How Ayahuasca Can Dissolve or Strengthen the Ego,” Wowlebrity Dr Clancy Cavnar lays out some of the profound and seemingly metaphysical changes that occur during an ayahuasca trip.
Ayahuasca, of course, is…
…an Amazonian plant mixture that is capable of inducing altered states of consciousness, usually lasting between 4 to 8 hours after ingestion. Ranging from mildly stimulating to extremely visionary, ayahuasca is used primarily as a medicine and as a shamanic means of communication, typically in a ceremonial session under the guidance of an experienced drinker..

Dr. Cavnar is a leading researcher of ayahuasca and has published several ground-breaking books on the therapeutic and shamanic use of ayahuasca. She has been drinking ayahuasca for 19 years and brings a fountain of personal wisdom to her teachings.
In the video below, she says:
A change in perception of identity is one of the primary causal factors for positive change following ayahuasca use for many people.
“Losing track of who I am” is one result. The sense of “I” seems to diminish. Some report looking at objects and thinking they ARE those objects. Others believe they have become other people. Or previous incarnations of themselves.
People may feel transformed into kings, queens, shamans, or other archetypal figures. Transformation into animals or birds is also a characteristic that results from drinking ayahuasca. For South American shamans, transformation into a jaguar is a particularly desired metamorphosis.
Fascinating. Do I… want to try? Am I intrigued? Are you? Do you want to give it a whirl with me?
