  1. Hey Halcyon, Your beautiful prize has arrived and will be potted up with the best soil mix. Thanks for the contest, and the out of pocket expense of postage. Very communal minded stuff. Cheers, Horus.
  2. After this "warm up" there needs to be new thread.......The Adventures of Noobie McSWIMmington . As there are still tales of the Muskroooms and Choonga, And the Great Adventure to Mullupmoonby. All this could give the Wizards cause to Summon Noobie to perform more deeds in different dimensions, in order to provide more tales ,Tall but True Fictitious Facts.
  3. Hey Glaukus, yeah Justice is just crackers. Though I try not to buy into the fear of BB looking over my shoulder. Poor old Dr Pot is in Cessnock jail till a November hearing. He should be getting awards, but instead he is getting time. Being a healer is Criminal behavior. Australia enforces that plant based natural medicines are a crime. So we can be in fear of getting healing too. https://www.churchofubuntu.org/dr-andrew-katelaris-update/
  4. The intent is to do deep healing work and integrate with nature, how do you plead ? Guilty as charged your honor. As a healer Ive been made to operate as an outlaw for years. But Judge, for there to be a crime there must be a victim, my actions have only created wellness in the world. There are only positive testimonies of my actions. Let Justice be done ! Lock him up and destroy his garden! Now the world is a better place. (hypothetical courtroom scenario )
  5. Glad I was in the graveyard to welcome Noobie Mcswimmington into the Secret Plant Society. Well written account, and I will be happy if the wizards apprentice beats me to the prize. So makes the point that the most beneficial medicines and healing modalities are criminal acts. To be a healer in our society you need to be an outlaw.
  6. Hey Hal, congrats on your stats. Thats a beaut Cactus, and I really want a cut, so here is a tale for you. If all you folks who were there vote, Im a shoe in for second. A couple of years ago I hosted a SAB camp on my property, I wanted to make the event special and memorable, so I asked everybody to send me their best cactus cut for a communal medicine. Beautiful pieces of cactus started arriving thru the mail. Each one with its own story, how it was gifted or traded. "swapped a bag of changa for this beauty" etc It was wonderful to work with each piece, notice the differences as they gave up their medicine. Each piece grown proudly with love, from a dozen medicine gardens. Its what we are about, to take things to the next level, everything an opportunity to excel, to showcase all the attributes and enchantments of our plants. What better way to bond the fellowship of our plant family, than to share a medicine that represents all the love everyone has put into their cactus. Soon afterwards a booming thunderstorm shook our little valley, the ancestor spirits who were duly respected and invited to join, us gave us a show and shower, renewal and reset, and the sun shone again creating steaming rocks and glistening leaves..........and big grins on all my SAB bros and sisters. Muchus Gratis Grandfather. All the tips I rooted and planted on the property, a garden that represents that event, my friends and their gardens. And in a couple of years we can regather and I can recreate that medicine.............. which was particularly good.
  7. Yes votes all round for me. I never miss a gathering. The forum is a bit static these days, as most stuff has been discussed. And FB has taken over most of the social discussion. But the network has evolved to be a bit more social, where we can share things, and talk openly about our experiences that we are still apprehensive about talking about online. Great staunch friends on here to meet. Lets get behind this and celebrate how good life is when we have all the magic plants in our gardens.
  8. To answer your question specifically, yes. I had no intention of giving up meat and grog...... my favorite meal is Malaysian Beef Rendang and I was a whisky connoisseur, I just love everything about it. But, after my 2nd deep Iboga session, the plant made me give them both up. Total dissociation from any desire for either. 4 and a half years ago. The fundamental reason is high vibration. The plant wants me to maintain the vibration of the medicine, and meat and grog are too low vibration. Besides better all around good health, (which is what you want from a good medicine). I get way more value from my other medicines, a cleaner system for them to work with. So, be careful with Iboga, you might just get exactly what you need. Not necessarily what you want.
  9. All living things are conscious, aware of their environment, but all except us live in the moment, fish have a notorious lack of memory but are still conscious beings. My dogs "know" lots of stuff, but they don't know that they know it. So I dont see what memory has to do with it. We are possibly continuous consciousness from previous lives, that our current ego denies us memory access to. Anyhow all that is part of the unknowable that we must accept . Memory is not important, a distraction actually. To live a fulfilled magical life, enriched and expanded with the medicines from the plants, and capable of all our possible potential, its best to be open to the concept that everything seen and unseen has an energy vibration that is connected. Not an accident, but a plan to create the conditions for life. Dose enough cactus and you will become aware that there is more than just light and heat radiating from the sun. There is information of all sorts, forces that created cell division and shaped ALL life. The plan of life is encoded into starlight, and shines thru the known universe. Chicken and egg stuff, but if this vibrational energy- light, is evolving planets to produce beings like us, conscious and self aware, then consciousness may be the fundamental essence of everything. And Starlight its pure form. Memory is a distraction to awareness. When we want to experience beyond/ more than our self, we tune into the present moment. When we are working with the plants, we experience fields of information beyond memory. Plants are conscious, but have no memory. The conscious universe is so huge, with so much happening in each milli-moment ,that the past and the memory of it, would need a separate universe for each moment to retain. So there is just the great eternal conscious moment in all its forms. Not to be known, but experienced, by being present. The great gift of being part of all its joys and horrors. The nature of the universe is cold, emotionless and indifferent, everything constantly killing something for its sustenance. Everything having cycles of destruction. Just cause its heartless, doesn't mean its not conscious. Just as everything in the material world has a particular vibration, ie the particles in diamond vibrating faster than those in sandstone. We are created to emit the vibrations that the physical world cannot. It is our job to raise the spectrum of vibration, by creating the higher frequencies of love and compassion. This Earth is not fulfilling that, due to the distractions of greed based consumerism, a very "not conscious" paradigm. "Loving" a diamond necklace, is not the same vibration as loving a stranger. And even if you disagree with my thoughts, you would have to agree that more selfless love would make the Universe a more conscious place. Oh, I digress, sorry, its too cold to get out of bed.
  10. The dried leaf can be smoked at any age. With most sacred plants, the tradition is to pick the leaves in pairs. I feel it is a way that makes you more mindful about what you are doing. The newer growth is good. Dry them till they are just crispy. Inactive by themselves, but will work as a MOAI and synergies well with cannabis, for a super medicinal smoke.
  11. Ayahuasca is the sixth album by drone rock band Pelt. It was released on June 12, 2001
  12. Yes, it is good medicine for your plants and garden too, put it in the compost. The dried leaves smoked will potentiate things.......shrooms in particular. And thats a great way to start the next level relationship with the plant, when you do brew......you will already be friends.
  13. Yeah sure, share away. @Freakazoid has a nice one of everybody leaving on the mountain climb.
  14. Lovely camp, thanks Torsten for a lot of effort and expense. Hillbilly feeding folks from thin air is always biblical, and worth the 12hr drive to experience, seriously thanks for the sustenance. I got wonderfully high on the saturday, here are some pics to prove it. I love that my SAB mates are so staunch, and never miss an opportunity to connect.
  15. Does that mean you are coming to the camp, or are you having your own ceremony and planting on Hillbilly hill .
  16. 3 tickets bought, Im coming with non forum plant buddies. Got the leave pass from the missus. Having a mini road trip, making a meal out of the event. Cheers.
  17. I run an "aya B@B" your welcome to hop on the queue and book in.PM for details. Im not big on rue, it "feels" like a poison to me. And has no heart or nurture, no story or dialogue. Its alright for potentiating shrooms.
  18. Cheers, no Ive never felt the call for mapacho. If im smudging a big group, I use Acacia. I was "instructed" to get a traditional Chapaka and was shown a vibrational cleansing using Aqua de flora and throat singing vibration. A fragrant fanning percussive droning with a unique beat and melody for every person, depending on their energetic needs, channeled thru the vine. With bigger groups, usually with cactus, I work with a partner who has trained with a Cactus shaman and she uses Mapacho when available. She is bringing the Shaman over in spring, so I get to hang with a Cactus Superman who doses every day. My first Shaman.
  19. No worries Cubism, Everybody is still stuck on who to drink with and where. Shackled by tradition and context. But there are whole new "next level" practices that we can be guided to by this plant. There could be no limits once we bust thru anchoring paradigms. People are focused on the human factors, and we dont give this plant the credit deserves. I have plant consciousness access thru it and it has human consciousness access thru me. And we are a team, like Batman and Robin, awakening folks. It never gives me challenging clients, it never wigs out people or gives me a handful of problems. Because everybody is nurtured commensurate with how I have nurtured the vine. Simples. Ha, Im being interviewed under the vine for a documentary this week, so yeah, I have been collecting my thoughts to be as articulate as possible. Thanks for the feedback, means Im on the right track to explain non-traditional use and next level value adding.
  20. When I first heard about aya in 2000, I hopped online and bought a bunch of ingredients from a supplier in Britain, and had my first journeys alone in the garden. They were powerful and great. I was also lucky enough to meet the "right guy" back then, and got a vine and all our other favorite plants. Whilst my vine was maturing, I was going thru my shroom stage. But would smoke vine leaf, the shrooms and vine would activate each other, and I could start my relationship with it. After 8 years I started making my own brews, it is a teacher plant, and those with patience, will find the instruction manual encoded within the medicine. After 10 years, I heard of people doing Ceremony in Australia, I had sorted out all my transpersonal stuff years ago and needed to pay for a brew like a "hole in the head". But one mob had a famed acupuncturist /healer as a regular, and I went to that first circle mainly to snag a dry needle torture session from him. They seen how experienced I was and invited me to be on crew. And I worked with the public, up to 20 at a time, from all over the world, many experienced from the amazon. After 5 years I witnessed most everything that can happen.Possessions and the like. They used imported amazon brew, and I would smoke my vine, so it would get all the latest plant goss and updates from the Amazon. (end of pre-amble) People go on about dialogue and relationship, getting messages from the vine. If they were not so self absorbed and self centered, and listened to what the vine needed, they would know this. These plants are like all the rest, they have one agenda, to be propagated.(in the ground and in peoples hearts) Plants have flowers and fruits, to appeal to insects and birds, to propagate them. Plants have food and medicinal properties to appeal to humans, to propagate them. To ensure they wont go extinct. The most successful plant is Cannabis. Its appeal has seen it spread to every part of the world, and genetically improved etc. It will only go extinct in a global catastrophe. The vine was in the jungle going, "what the fuck is all this logging?, whats with all this mining?, why are the shamans harvesting more for all these new big Ceremonies?, who are these people from all over the world? Well they look like my ticket to safety". And the vine left the jungle to be propagated around the world, minimizing its extinction possibility. So anybody who doesn't grow a vine, is missing the plants needs. Grow an Orange tree, and you will be rewarded with an annual harvest of fresh fruit. Grow a vine and you will be rewarded with "magical" abilities, and the latest upgrades of vibrational frequencies. The nurture you put into your vine will pay you back many fold and in inter-dimensional ways. Take it from my experience that serving your own brew, as compared to a sourced brew, even if its a grouse amazon concoction with chaliponga and all, is chalk and cheese. So, Im glad Ive never been to the Amazon (im sure its quite dandy) or even met a proper shaman. I dont want all the distraction of Cultural Context. Lots of it smoke and mirrors showmanship. The least interference between you and the medicine, often the better. At the end of the day, it is just your Central nervous system and cerebral cortex with the plants. Safety is the main thing, and when facilitating I draw more from a background in OHS, QA and Manual Handling Trainer than feathers and crystals. Big circles are a new tradition,to cater for the demand, but they also encourage commerce and the greed that goes with it. Most of the time they are a psychic soup of clutter. When they go off the rails, yes they are total trainwrecks. Here and the Amazon. (i decided to venture out and pay for my first circle in years a few weeks ago, and it crashed) Traditionally a villager and the shaman would work one on one, which ironically is my current method. All I can report is I have well traveled folks from all over the world, who have drank with all the shaman and a night with me actually under the vine ranks as special and sometimes more beneficial than other their more traditional experiences. This is something to think about. The Shamans vine is hidden in the jungle, its not his...the jungle nurtures it. You dont see it or touch it. This is a new thing. You can have your own vine, feed it with your DNA, bury your dogs under it, sprinkle you Mums ashes on it, nurture it, grow potentiated shrooms under it, or any value adding ritual. Its like planting a Genie.....(that takes 10 years to come out of the bottle), that can train you in magic. To show us their appeal these entheogenic plants need to get inside people. So the gardener, once trained by the plant, and both plant and gardener have complete faith and trust in each others powers and talents. The gardener has a duty to propagate" the spirit" of the plant into people. To plant that esoteric seed. And safe set and setting is the ground to plant that spirit seed. And any enhancements and healings are the fertaliser to make it grow. Anyhow, what am I trying to say..... You can always consider taking your medicine with a gardener as an option to shaman. And that's my reasonably informed opinion on Ayahausca. And having said that, Ive recommended a few folks go to "the temple of light" (as an anthropologist friend wrote her thesis on them) And they do an excellent job, and have plants you can see and touch.
  21. Timing and venue sound great. Im ready for a road trip. April........ it will be a moral though that as soon as we head up the coast, the conditions will become perfect for Subs up i the mountains. oh well, community is more important.
  22. Ok, I have been umming about this, but my next operation has moved forward to this Fri, so I should be ok. Ive been thinking that its awhile since I hosted on the Coast, and its also awhile since we have had a social allnighter. The date would be Sat night 17th Feb, that is close to both Hillbilly and my birthdays. And I want to celebrate the completion of my surgerys, and start of being a new man. Big Col 2.0 I want to do a Mexican theme party, my backyard already has the decor, skulls, mexican food, cactus shots, etc etc So, what is the interest ? Lets do details as usual on PM. Sorry no newbies.
  23. So stupid, Cocaine is the easiest drug to taste test, unless this stuff causes numbness as well. What if it had of been an RC. They still would have dosed 500% too much, and anyone who has ever been foolish enough to snort an RC, will think twice before snorting anything, thats for sure.
  24. This is how far you can take things with Caapi cross sections. Not my Strat, but this guy takes custom orders. So, in theory, you can harvest some vine, make a brew and bung it in the freezer. Send this guy enough vine to do a guitar, which he sends back to you. Then you can drink your brew and play the strat, vibrating the vine internally and externally in a medicinal loop. Next level drinking !! A great plan. Vine sections, chacruna grout, 24 carot gold fittings.
  25. Nice pipe Toast, yeah Huan is a lovely bloke with an amazing garden of rare treats. I recently got an aya serving cup that I love thru old mate Flux. Vine sections with chacruna grout, around a Mahogany cup. Just the right size, for a nice strong brew.
