Ayahuasca: The King of Brews

There is a magic intoxicant in northwesternmost South America which the Indians believe call free the soul from corporeal confinement, allowing it to wander free and return to the body at will.
The soul, thus untrammeled, liberates its owner from the realities of everyday life and retroduces him to wondrous realms of what he considers reality and permits him to communicate with his ancestors.
The Kechua term for this inebriating drink- Ayahuasca ("vine of the soul") -refers to this freeing of the spririt. The plants involved are truly plants of the gods, for their power is laid to supernatural forces residing in their tissues, and they were divine gifts to the earliest Indians on earth.

From Agony to Ecstasy: The Transformative Spirit of Yage
By Jimmy Weiskopf
"Yaje' is probably best known among Westerners for its gift of extraordinary, multicolored visions. According to accounts, yaje' pin tas (visions) can range from vividly detailed scenes recreated from one's memories to otherworldly panoramas filled with exotic Plants and animals, mythical creatures, and spirit beings."

Common Themes in South American Yage Experiences
By Michael J. Harner
"...when I've taken Ayahuasca I've experienced dizziness, then an aerial journey in which I recall perceiving the most gorgeous views, great cities, lofty towers, beautiful parks, and other extremely attractive objects; then I imagined myself to be alone in a forest and assaulted by a number of terrible beings from which I defended myself..."

The Ayahuasca-Alien Connection
By Luis Eduardo Luna & Pablo Amaringo
"
In spite of the frequency with which Pablo depicts spaceships, he is sparse in his commentary about them. Pablo says that these vehicles may take many shapes, are able to attain infinite speed, and can travel underwater or under the earth. The beings traveling in them are like spirits, having bodies more subtle than ours, appearing and disappearing at will."

Vine of the Souls
By Charlie Kidder
Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People may say that a plant has no mind. I tell them that a plant is alive and conscious. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive.
