A description of the experience
Alice Dee – from the Story of a Psychedelic Socialite and Ecstatic dancer
Throughout the ayahuasca sessions in Peru, I had noticed the onset of dizziness and nausea in the early stage after drinking the medicine. This had prompted me to use grounding techniques to counteract it. But on the last journey, I found myself wondering what would happen if I just went with it. So I allowed myself to just experience the dizziness, which soon intensified to the point where it felt as though my astral body was spinning around in my seat. Eventually, I started to spiral upward and dissociate from my physical body, which I could see below me. I then passed through the roof of the temple into the sky where I noticed the full moon over the jungle.
A moonbeam emerged and out of that light stepped a vision of a beautiful silvery Goddess. She had a pale complexion and beautiful long platinum hair and was dressed in a long shimmering silver dress. As she came toward me, she started to dance and gestured me to follow along. She then gently and patiently taught me a beautiful flowing, swirling dance, with very deliberate and specific movements. It was ecstatic!
After the Goddess's instruction seemed complete, I bowed with thanks and felt a call to return to my body. I opened my eyes to see the shaman standing in front of me, gesturing for me to get up and dance! I declined the invitation due to the sedating nature of the medicine but was impressed that he seemed to know about my vision.
