Don Augustine, the Shaman was in his mid seventies when I was in Peru. He was amazing to watch with his agility and energy. During the ceremony he started with playing his flute and drum for an hour after we were given the Ayahuasca. Uzalada (my door keeper, in spirit) was jumping up and down and excited about my education in the ways of the jungles.( I am condensing my story to the main facts for the reader.)
In one of the ceremonies with Ayahuasca Diane asked me to be one of the six individuals to assist in the healing: three on each side and a Shaman at both ends. I was delighted and honoured to be a party to this. Each ceremony went on for 3 to 4 hours.
Diane was asked to lie on the floor. The helpers were to be on the floor next to her. Don Augustine was at her head and the other Shaman, Susan was at her feet.I was alone at the center on her right side. Only three of the six could get on the floor, the other three were sick or paralyzed by the affects of the Ayahuasca. The air was energized and magical. Don Augustine had a twitch from the jungle in his right hand and pointed it at the breast that had the cancer. I watch as bolts of energy went from the twitch into the breast. AMAZING.
Diane started to exit her body spiritually. I grabbed her hand and said Diane you need to stay present in the body to heal. So the spirit withdrew back into the body.Suddenly, I looked up and across from me was a Mayan with a dragon mask on( in spirit). I looked at him and said you need to leave, your not welcome here. The role of leader often has me stepping up to the plate to protect others. He stated he was here to assist Don Augustine. I said oh and shut up.
In a split second the Mayan reached across to the cancerous breast and pulled a large black glob the size of a baseball from her breast. I knew instantly this was the cancer and it had been removed. This was the beginning of healing the spirit. Diane spent many days of Banana leaves and special local mud packs placed on the area. She was also taken to a local mineral mud bath to assist with healing the entire body.This was just the beginning of healing for many in our group.
I am still in awe when I think about all these experiences. in love and light
