When all known roads lead to a dead end, it is time to explore the unknowable.
In Conversations with Ayahuasca, author Ol Serbon describes how a series of four annual journeys to the Amazon jungle to partake in Indigenous shamanic ceremonies involving the entheogenic beverage ayahuasca were a catalyst for healing issues in her life and body that were troubling her and entirely altering her perception of reality.
A powerful spiritual guide, Aya, introduced herself to Serbon and invited her to tour what appeared to be alternate dimensions and strange landscapes, like a vast underground city of plants. She also time traveled to an ancient civilization on Earth, perhaps Lemuria, and found evidence of an even more ancient civilization than that, indicating history repeats itself in broad cycles as do our souls. These dreamlike adventures revealed how our consciousness, focus, and resonant frequency shape the form that the world around us takes.
Back at home, Serbon developed a daily meditative practice for putting herself into the right state to receive visions and messages from Aya. Sitting on the deck at her house in a light trance, she would type lessons into her laptop about the arts of dream riding and manifestation, and warnings about impending dangers related to advances in technology, such as integrating AI into human physiology.
Feeling intuitively drawn to India, at last she searched for an enlightened sage who could help her make sense of her experiences.
Her story belongs to everyone in our generation.
