Don't trip alone!

5-MeO-DMT is by far the strongest Entheogen known to man. It is important to know that consuming this compound by yourself can be extremely dangerous. Firstly, it is known that during the experience people can stop breathing without noticing it. And secondly, if vomiting takes place, you must be rolled over on your left side, to prevent choking while laying on your back. It is, therefore, fundamental to have someone watching over you.

The Heart of Uninhibited Gratitude

In 2015, I started working with a powerful entheogen, Ayahuasca. Finding myself deep in the Amazonian jungle, drinking a strange concoction with an indigenous group only made sense in the context of the healing process I had just seriously begun a year before. It was literally waking up one day and deciding that this wasn't how I wanted my life to be. I had everything one could imagine, all the vanishings for a happy life: a wonderful, supportive family; a successful academic career; a house, a car, and plenty of money in my bank account. Yet, something was missing. I was unable to see, let alone experience, how blessed I was. Every day was a marathon, full of self-help quotes to motivate me to the end of the workweek. Simply, I knew there was so much more to life; I knew it in every fiber of my being. I just didn't know how to access, with my heart, my life. As I said, one day, I woke up and knew I had to do something differently. I was finally done waiting for life to happen to me. I knew I had to make the decision then fully commit to a different path of life and a different way of living.


But I am not here to write about Ayahuasca. I want to share how my journey led me to Bufo alvarius. I want to talk about Bufo alvarius as a different and very important modality of healing. After three years of intensive work with Ayahuasca, I had my first Bufo alvarius experience. As I reflect back on my experiences, I am amazed at how different medicines have entered my life in exactly the perfect moment to facilitate my healing process. This is how the sacred toad first came into my life. At an Ayahuasca ceremony, my husband expressed interest in learning more about Bufo. Someone at the ceremony actually knew a facilitator with whom he could connect us. And so it goes, later that week, we were sitting in the beautiful home of an amazingly conscientious practitioner who guided us through our first Bufo experiences. For us both, it was such a powerful experience. I was able to physically release a great amount of trauma stored in my soma. My entire body shook uncontrollably, and I could feel the medicine releasing such large amounts of tension, pain, and fear. I surrendered, as my heart began to pound out of my chest. At the end of my first session, I also knew I could surrender more deeply. Now that I understood how the medicine worked and trusted the healing space, I knew I had to do another dosage, to go a little deeper. The next morning, I sat again with the sacred toad, and my second experience opened my heart beyond known limits. I had no idea that I could feel so much love and gratitude. The more I surrendered to the process, the more my heart expanded, revealing to me the natural state of the human heart. It seemed that initially, I needed a physical release before the medicine could do its true healing. See, for me, the sacred toad connected me to my fullest heart, love in its purest form-- what it was truly like before the experiences of life, with all its trials and sorrows, had confiscated its innocence, abundance, and openness. My first Bufo Alvarius sessions connected me back to its true nature: the heart of openness, the heart of uninhibited gratitude.


Another year passed before I was able to do a Bufo healing again. Meanwhile, my husband, an Ayahuasca practitioner, and I founded and built a healing center. Even to this day, we drink Ayahuasca regularly. However, we do Bufo healing when we need to hit the reset button. When we need a powerful medicine to reconnect us back to our truest selves. I always tell my husband, the sacred toad gives me new eyes on the world, or better, it changes my way of perceiving and receiving the world. With regular practice of prayer and meditation, I can easily reconnect to the healings and teachings of the sacred toad for days, even weeks following the healing. We don't do Bufo alvarius often, for we recognize it as such a precious medicine, but when we feel that we are straying too far from our truest selves, a Bufo healing brings us right back to the center of all things: ourselves, our love, our commitment. My husband always says, sacred medicines can show us the way, reveal to us the natural state of our selves (prior to the pain and stresses that have made us close ourselves), but it is our job to stay in that sacred space; it is our responsibility to use that knowing to improve the quality of our lives.
