My name is Amapola.I live in Vilcabamba and I came here from Israel 5 years ago, following my encounter and teachings of the plant medicines and my teachers in Casa del Sol.I had the privilege to participate in a lot of retreats and life changing ceremonies with Santiago, Ximena, Salvador, Luis and Norma and more….Every time feels the same WOW, but this time this last week of February 2023 and 1.3.23, exceeded all the WOWS in such a way that even my mind still cannot explain and or express.So without trying to put words to the unspeakable, I am going to use words to express my deepest gratitude, admiration, appreciation and humbleness to the entire family of Casa de Sol and all the elements and spirits.For me it started with a peyote ceremony under the beautiful sky full of stars, continued with a profound teaching from the Yopo medicine and Norma with her relation to the medicine and her unique and special human touch from the spirit within her. With Luis and all the beautiful energy of the entire group.The last day for me was the GRAND FINALE, in which no Broadway Show can even touch its “feet”.It was my first time to see Salvador and Santiago combining their shamanic abilities and offering us a spectacular assistance through our collective and most “scary” and important personal journey, with grandmother Ayawaska.I can just recommend all of you to wish yourself this beautiful experience, being supported and guided in realities that we are not familiar with, with those Shamans that I trust upon my experience.When I went out of my mind to a reality with no mind, they were my “Dula”, the signs in the road, the god particle, and my direction providers...at the end we all made it through. I cannot go back now, only forward.Their presence, their songs, the messages that were including in their songs, the vibrations they offered that helped us walking through our deepest fears, so we can see, and fully love what we were used to hate, and even didn’t know….made the processes so much worth it.I remember one of the main messages that helped me:Trust the processes.I trusted them more than the processes itself in the beginning….hahaha….and then the processes showed itself with no expectations as a realization:I must fear love so much….there is no other reason that fear still exists….with the help of the Shamans I opened my eyes to what I couldn’t see before, and only then I could give birth to love that is only to be experienced and felt. I really cannot talk about it more than that. I can just encourage you to reach out.I promised myself to be an example of these teachings, so here I am using words to attract those who are ready to open up to the truth of existence within themselves.It is worth it, and the only way I can reward myself for taking my step on this road, is to continue practicing more of the same and be “a call” for you.The medicine gave me the tools to be the medicine for “myself”, also and specially when I don’t drink it….and I wish all of us will meet each other with open eyes to THAT too.TAT WAM ASI.See you soon.Aho.
