Reminder for Those Entering the Ayahuasca Realms

Someone wrote me recently to say they were very terrified while under the influence of ayahuasca. As the person had been a guest of mine in the jungle, I was surprised. I guess they continued the work when they got back home, wherever that is. Anyway, I sent this quick note out:
   We all get terrified and are unable to move at times in that world. I just get frozen and beg my heart to stop so that I can be free of the fear. BUTTT, remember what I told you about not having a body?
In the other realms you have no body. No one and no spirit can grab you, stab you, hurt you physically.
    Which means you are not constrained. If something menacing is engulfing you, become more menacing and engulf it. You don't need to know how to do it, if you can just tie a string around your finger to remind yourself to do it, then you can do it.
   If it's a physical monster, become a bigger one. It has 20 heads grow 100 heads.

   If it's just an overwhelming sort of darkness, turn on light—again, it will just happen—and the
darkness will vanish in it.
   If it's something you need to deal with, put yourself on equal terms and then deal with it.
   None of which is easy when you're frozen in fear.
   Hence my suggestion of a reminder piece of string around your finger.

That advice would have come in handy during an encounter I had several months ago when I met an Ice Queen with a long dagger instead of an arm who simply told me, "ayahuasca had given you enough already, so fuck off"... and then I ran away like a little kid, because I was scared shitless and afterwards was extremely dissatisfied with the experience. I will keep your advice in mind in the event of future trouble :-)
