Deeper Perception Made Practical

Ayahuasca Alert. How Guillermo Arévalo’s Aura Is Almost Unbelievably Ugly

Underneath the lush of an Ayahuasca high, consciousness turns spiritually barren

Underneath the lush promises of an Ayahuasca high, consciousness turns spiritually barren

Thanks to all you Blog-Buddies who have supplied background on Ayahuasca, the fad drug that supposedly gives people a powerful spiritual awakening.

Supposedly, you can get clear awareness of God — or a cooler equivalent — without paying any price whatsoever — beyond the cost of drug tourism. Can we humans really obtain anything of value without paying the price?

If you go to What Does Ayahuasca Do for Spiritual Development? Welcome to a New Kind of Group Contest, you’ll find a series of comments for a quick introduction to the latest seeker’s wonder drug.

Encouraged by you Blog-Buddies, today I’m starting a new series of consumer articles on Ayahuasca: Some written by me, with guest posts a-coming from other members of this informal online community who have, also, developed solid skills of everyday energetic literacy.

(You can learn this life skill too, of course. If you can read this screen, you can definitely learn to read auras just as easily. See more at the end of this post.)

Warning: This Post Is Looooooooong

Here’s what happened, Blog-Buddies. Before I went into the aura reading, certain things just had to be said. That’s how it seemed to me, anyway.

So I added a bunch of background material that might be helpful to you and your friends. But it may not be terribly relevant to you long-time Blog-Buddies. In which case, just skip down to this heading: Let’s Start with Something Positive about Guillermo Arévalo.

I made it all read so that you can find it easily. 🙂

Protect Yourself from Ayahuasca Hype

When claims about Ayahuasca sound so wonderful, accurate aura reading will protect you as nothing else can.

If today’s post makes sense to you, please share it with friends. Help them to become smart Post-New-Age Consumer and learn what Ayahuasca actually does to the consciousness of people who take it. Beautiful spiritual seekers who are promised that, even for a short time, their state of consciousness can improve.

It’s a lie. Authentic spiritual awakening does not come with no strings attached. And authentic spiritual growth is different from going to the movies. Or taking a drug that brings a brief flashy experience that blows a person’s circuits and creates energetic damage that will take significant energy healing to remove.

One More Thing

Yeah, before I go for the nitty-gritty aura reading, please know this.

If you have taken any drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, Ayahuasca, or even “harmless” cannabis, sessions of aura healing with RES skills can really help you to move forward in life.

Any RES expert can assist you to receive permanent aura-level healing. I’ve helped many sweet spiritual seekers whose lives have been compromised by STUFF they’re still carrying from drug experiences. Please consider this motto from RES and take heart:

STUFF can always, always, always be healed.

Of course other experts in mind-body-spirit may be able to help you too. It would be preposterous to claim that only RES sessions can help. I’m just saying that… RES sessions can help.

Smart consumers in The Age of Awakening, today’s blog post can help you to question big promises made by anyone.

  • It sure isn’t for vanity purposes that you’ll find a reasonably current photograph of myself on this blog right now.
  • Any honest aura healer will also make a current photo available.
  • Which means that you can research it, or have somebody with Stage Three Energetic Literacy research it for you.

About Using Diet to Clean up Drug Use

Blog-Buddies, please know this and tell your friends: Many people are trying to get over drug experiences by adopting a super-pure diet.

This won’t work.  It can’t work. Here’s a bunch of research that you can read at this blog about how “pure” one popular diet really makes an enthusiast: Aura Reading Five Proud Vegans. Is It Self-Starvation Made Trendy?  BTW, that blog post includes a standing offer for some free aura readings, as you’ll read there.

Of course, there is one super-easy way to avoid drug-related, astral-level debris that clogs up emotions and auric energies.

This method is totally do-it-yourself. Self-healing at its finest! Effortless!

Don’t smoke it. Don’t drink it. Don’t eat it. Don’t sniff it. For good reason one term for Ayhuasca and similar is… DOPE.

A Shaman Who, Sooner or Later, May Well Feel Ashamed

Today I’m going to do aura reading research on one of the three “curanderos” (shamans) in the Ayahuasca documentary, Vine of Souls.

Today, aura reading research using this photo of Guillermo Arévalo.

Let’s Start with Something Positive about Guillermo Arévalo 

For today’s energetic literacy research, let’s begin with a gift of his soul. In the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses® you read one chakra databank at a time.

Every chakra databank contains a soul-level gift, a distinctive and beautiful potential that person has for living in human life. In Enlightenment a person uses every one of these gifts of the soul; before then, it’s chancy.

Chakra databanks also contain information about how the person is doing now, at the time of the photo or while in person with you, receiving the aura reading. This changes a lot, and is the practical part.

Mostly I’ll read that today. But let’s start with saying something positive about this shaman who is doing his best, in his way, to help people.

This will be a gift of his soul at his Root Chakra Databank for Connection to Objective Reality.

Guillermo Arévalo has courage, a sense of wonder, and immense curiosity in how he relates to physical life here on earth. Beautiful!

Okay, now onto the results of Guillermo Arévalo’s choices in life, including his using Ayhuasca and giving it to people under his care.

Root Chakra Databank for Connection to Objective Reality

1/2 inch. Nearly totally shut down.

In this slimy stump of a chakra databank, it becomes instantly evident that Guillermo Arévalo lives as an addict, seemingly present in human objective reality but really living at an astral level within earth.

Anyone else who identifies with life as someone who often takes Ayhuasca… of course…. would consider Guillermo Arévalo to be amazingly clear, vivid, magically endowed, and replete with all the other enticements of The Romance of the Astral.

That would be the drug talking, folks.

When you co-create with God to do aura reading — not mess around with unskilled energy sensitivity and not work with spirits to see auras — then you’re not fooled by the glamour of the astral. You can perceive what’s happening in somebody’s aura with clarity.

From that perspective, I’ve got to say… Guillermo Arévalo is sold out to a very low-vibrational astral level with a sexual sheen, with a slimy superiority to human life. Unless you’re on the drug experience, just about any normal human being would find it truly repulsive.

Since we’re now living in The Age of Awakening, all of us are susceptible to the allure of astral experience. Hey hasn’t that has been a major topic at this blog since 2013?

For more about the confusions that people can have about living, vibrationally, see my latest book to help people live without that kind of confusion:”THE NEW STRONG,” which contains Rules & Tools for Thriving in the “Age of Awakening.

Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Personal Power

4 inches. Close to shut down.

Guillermo Arévalo expresses enormous power… at the astral level where he’s living while still (barely) inhabiting his human body.

If you’re high with him, he will have great ability to play with your mind and “help you.”

However, Guillermo Arévalo isn’t terribly powerful in human life. Nor does he try to be, because he’s often taking the spiritual bypass — “spiritual bypass” is another term discussed at length in “THE NEW STRONG.”

Golly, I could have filled that whole book with examples of how Ayahuasca brings out the worst in poor adaptation to the New Rules in The Age of Awakening.

Only, of course, I only heard of Ayahuasca recently. Besides, that would have made “THE NEW STRONG” a very depressing book rather than a self-help resource that is meant to be inspiring, practical, and effective.

Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Power Integrity

1/8 inch. Shut down.

Guillermo Arévalo lives in thrall to the astral beings in his neighborhood. He feels so special to be able to see them and hear them.

And the drug has jazzed up this awareness in a big way.

He isn’t taken over by these beings. More that he’s voluntarily living as one of them, akin to a foreigner who visits a faraway land and is viewed as a king by the natives.

From his side, Guillermo Arévalo will do just about anything to make human beings dependent on his real peeps, his kingdom of low-vibrational astral beings.

Only, as a person, he would have all sorts of elaborate and “beautiful” rationalizations as he does so. If you take one of his tours, you’re bound to hear some.

Or you could abstain. Reading his aura, you’ll find the practiced and entrenched self-deception is part of the overall repulsive quality to Guillermo Arévalo’s sharing power chakra databank at the time of this photograph.

Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Growth

1/8 inch. This capacity, to grow emotionally, has been so shut down for so long that Guillermo Arévalo will probably never be able to experience human emotions in a normal fashion for the rest of his life.

Only humans who live on earth have human emotions. Animals don’t have human emotions (apart from when we project our human experiences onto beloved horses, puppies, or other pets).

Astral beings don’t have human emotions. Not even your beautiful guardian angel and spirit guides who are on your Personal Guidance Team (also discussed in “THE NEW STRONG”).

In his interesting experiment in this lifetime, Guillermo Arévalo has surrendered as much of his human identity as possible so that he can have his interesting adventure with the low-vibrational astral beings where Ayahuasca takes human consciousness.

Can he still speak the language of human emotions? Sure. And undoubtedly he will do everything he can to use that language to influence others. In his shamanic work, especially for those under the influence of Ayahuasca, I’d expect him to manipulate those words in order to make the person’s aura light up and, thus, engage that person more fully into his web of lies.

He’ll do the sort of aura reading astral beings can do, and that humans can do under the influence of drugs like Ayahuasca. And that will take the place of personally connecting to human emotions any more.

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Spiritual Growth

Oh yes, Blog-Buddies, let’s be sure to research the much vaunted spiritual growth aspect of taking a substance like Ayahuasca!

1/2 inch. “We are all gods now,” sing the low-astral beings with whom Guillermo Arévalo identifies.

So that’s the delusional promise he’s got in this shut down chakra databank.

Experts in recovery are familiar with the preposterous kinds of stinking thinking that result from chemical addiction.

Is this also found at the subconscious level, researching chakra databanks of an addict? Sure.

Always very personal types of delusion, to be sure.

One can only imagine the promises made by this shaman. While pitching Ayahuasca, does he tell people they will see God, or become one with God? Or does he only tell his students that while they’re under the influence?

It is easy to frame The Romance of the Astral into “This is spiritual” or even “This is God.”

Not really.

  • Human vibrational frequencies are HUMAN, despite their fast range.
  • The Divine vibrational frequency is DIVINE. Distinctive and most soul-stirring.
  • Astral vibrational frequencies are ASTRAL. They have the most vast range of all three types of vibrational frequency.
  • Guillermo Arévalo may be messing around with one of the lowest types of astral being who lives here on earth, but these inhabitants of his Ayahuasca kingdom still have astral characteristics. Unless people know basic facts of life about the three types of vibrational frequency, it is very easy to convince them that astral = Divine. It does not.
  • Astral does not even equal “Close to the Divine.”

One of my hopes for “THE NEW STRONG” is that its Program for Easy Vibrational Balance will make it much easier for people living now to navigate our new vibrational freedom to slip-slide into astral experiences and find them superior. Even without taking any drugs at all!

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Astral Beings

Out to the moon. Guillermo lives for his connection to his particular Ayahuasca-level astral beings.

Not merely connected, he is fed by them, feted by them; they do him favors. He. Is. Their. King.

(Other shamans who do similar work probably feel exactly the same way. But whatever. Anyone who thinks mid-level or lower-level astral beings tell the truth… just hasn’t been paying attention.)

Not to gross you out or anything, Blog-Buddies, but the quality of this chakra databank is very much that of a very strongly aroused stiffy of a sex addict.

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source

1/8 inch.

Guillermo Arévalo has no use for “a God.”

Complete blankout of interest. So much for the “spiritual leader” and his real priorities, energetically and subconsciously!

Aura Reading Does Reveal Truth

In case you’d like to learn more, here’s where I’m coming from. Skills for depth aura reading form a basis for all the other skill sets of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES).

As a smart consumer in the Age of Awakening, you’ll find that energetic literacy is — quite simply — indispensable.

For a spiritual seeker, energetic literacy reveals what’s really happening with the consciousness of a shaman or a religious advisor or a televangelist or a spiritual teacher or an Enlightenment Coach.

Talk is cheap. Results from bad teaching… can be very expensive.

But energetic literacy protects you from false teachings, false prophets, spiritual advisors who mean well but are really in no position to teach you a thing.

As Blog-Buddy AJ wrote recently here, “Do you know what I find inspiring? That many of us readers here at the blog may very well be closer to Enlightenment then the “inspiring” people we nominate sometimes.”

Curious about learning to read auras? Rest assured, aura reading doesn’t have to involve psychic development.

Read about reading auras as a form of energetic literacy, at our Top 10 List about Energetic Literacy.

And, if you’re really curious about the full range of energetic literacy skills, as they can be developed by YOU, here’s an update about that was published in April 2016.

Sure, you can learn skills for deeper perception. No drugs required!

    AJ says:

    Thank you so much for sharing, Rose! This was such a great aura reading. It really mirrors what I had discovered as well.

    All of this has given me a whole new perspective on recreational drugs.

  2. 2
    Sam says:

    For those of you who might be skeptical over the dangers of substances like these (and marijuana), all you have to do is develop Stage 3 Energetic Literacy.

    With the right skills, you’re able to read these chakra databanks objectively and decide for yourself.

    I for one, was SHOCKED at what I discovered doing my own research!

  3. 3

    You’re welcome, AJ.

    Blog-Buddies, an article soon published in this series will be research that SAM has done on a before-and-after of a trusting person who took Ayahuasca. Not a seller. A buyer.

    You see, you’all inspired me to do a series of articles. Not a big research study but something within the scope of this blog. I do hope you’ll spread the word to people you love, and even casual friends, who are getting swept up in the fad of drug tourism.

    Anne Diamond says:

    Rose, at the risk of sounding very naive, do you think Mr. Arevalo understands that he could go higher but is staying down for power and manipulation?

  5. 5

    ANNE DIAMOND, it’s lovely to hear from you.

    I’m glad you asked, because this is an question that might be asked about anyone whose aura is read: “Does this person consciously understand the problems in his or her aura?”

    I don’t speculate. That lies beyond the scope of energetic literacy. And I think it’s important to know that responsible aura readers do not speculate. We are reading a person’s energies at a level that corresponds to a person’s subconscious mind. Not conscious. Subconscious.

  6. 6

    Here we can make an analogy to regular word literacy.

    What if Guillermo Arévalo published a paragraph, in words, about how he relates to Ayahuasca? With word literacy we could read his words. That’s it.

    What did he mean when he wrote it? Which thoughts and feelings did he have about it?

    Beyond the scope of THAT kind of literacy.

  7. 7

    With your lovely intention here, ANNE, you were asking for speculation.

    It’s very important that aura reading not cross a line from literacy into speculation and gossip.

    If you’re into Deeper Perception Made Practical, this article could be a must for you: “Aura Reading, Face Reading, and Skilled Empath Merge, As Done Here, Are Not Gossip”

    Irene says:

    Once you can read words, you can read what’s there. And when you don’t know how to read, it just seems like strange magical information from these symbols that have meaning for some special people (those who know how to read). Energetic literacy is the same.

    I’m still getting used to having energetic literacy stage 3. It is so very helpful. And fun to do, even when the results are kinda yucky like this. Plus it’s so much better to know.

  9. 9
    Irene says:

    I hadn’t thought of it like this before:

    “In Enlightenment a person uses every one of these gifts of the soul; before then, it’s chancy.”

    One more reason I want to go in a direction of real spiritual growth. I like my gifts (the ones I know about so far) and I want to use them more 🙂

    Irene says:

    Also, thanks for doing this research, Rose.

    Brandi says:

    This was a fascinating post Rose!

    I wasn’t totally surprised that the true nature of this product is in fact just another kind of high (lipstick on the pig as they say).

    I’m sad that consumers are thinking it is sacred when really would those same people like to try crack or heroin? Probably not. As you have said on this blog before-Illusions abound at earth school.

  12. 12
    Brandi says:

    I will add that when I was in spiritual addiction and found out about Ayahuasca I was like ” humm..can I go to Peru??

    “Am I spiritual enough to do that?”

    Thank goodness I am a smarter consumer and can learn and learn from your blog even more.

  13. 13
    Kira says:

    I grew up with the “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign and the commercials featuring the scrambled egg that is your brain on drugs.

    Nevertheless, I used to want to try LSD or another hallucinogenic drug just to see what it was like.

  14. 14
    Kira says:

    During high school, I became dimly aware that there had to be schoolmates using drugs, but I really had no idea who. There was zero peer pressure on me to try drugs of any kind.

    That was fine with me, because my plan was to wait until I was older.

  15. 15
    Kira says:

    As it turned out, I eventually realized I really didn’t want to try a hallucinogen, because my own actual experiences and ability to imagine strange things were enough.

    (I had already been joking for some time that I was high on life.)

  16. 16
    Kira says:

    I eventually discovered that some of my current friends are a lot more tolerant of pot use (without being potheads) than I would have expected, and one in particular told me that the problem he saw with the anti-drug message was that it’s too harsh; it lumps all drugs in together.

  17. 17
    Kira says:

    That was a problem to him because kids wouldn’t believe the message—if pot, which to him is proven to be relatively benign, carries the same warnings and penalties as crack cocaine, then kids have no reason to trust any of the anti-drug messages.

  18. 18
    Kira says:

    I was slightly tempted to reconsider whether I really wanted to try a drug someday, but luckily, it was never a strong desire anyway.

    And when I found your blog and read whichever post was my first-discovered about drugs and aura reading, I was really glad I had never bothered.

  19. 19
    Kira says:

    Every time I read a drug-related aura reading on the blog, I think of my friend’s argument and wince. This is the kind of thing that I wish were common knowledge.

  20. 20
    Kira says:

    There *is* a chance that I was high once, during high school—some friends and I went to a Kinks concert because we were Styx fans and Tommy Shaw was opening.

    Someone told me later that the guy next to me had a bong (and had to explain what that was).

  21. 21
    Kira says:

    If I did in fact get high from his secondhand smoke, I was not impressed; I don’t remember anything of the Kinks at all (he didn’t light up until after Tommy Shaw).

    And as someone who prides herself on having a good memory, having a hole where a memory should be always bothered me.

    It’s quite possible that that incident influenced my feelings about taking drugs or not.

  22. 22
    Sam says:

    I’m glad you mentioned that KIRA, because I felt the same way.

    I’ve never been interested in drugs, but the one thing I used to be open to was trying a psychedelic drug (at least once in my life). These are the drugs you hear about from professors and thought leaders as something that made them look at life in an entirely different way.

  23. 23
    AJ says:

    I wonder if this concept of using psychedelics to have these types of experiences are becoming a phenomenon of individuals who are in Spiritual Shutdown?

    Many of the advocates who often praise these hallucinogenic drugs, I’ve noticed, tend to be very smart people who are Doctors, professors, CEO’s, etc.

    A few that come to mind happen to be atheists.

  24. 24
    Sam says:

    I want to mention something really important.

    I WAS one of those people until I read the aura of someone BEFORE and AFTER taking Ayahuasca.

    I knew that drugs can affect you for a few days after taking them, but I had no idea that it’s effect on your aura could be so severe.

  25. 25

    Thanks so much for all the comments so far at this post.

    About that fine research you’ve done into the impact of Ayahuasca on one enthusiast, Chelsea Handler.

    Yes, I will be publishing your guest post with that Ayahuasca before-and-after aura reading.

    And I do invite more of you Blog-Buddies (of strong stomach) to submit some as well. First I aim to post blog posts on three Ayahuasca shamans, to provide context.

    This is absolutely fascinating!

    Thank you so much for clarifying in yet another way how astral is not divine.

  28. 28
    Dana K. says:

    shamans seem to be making a comeback. I wonder if perhaps there was a time many thousands of years ago where a ceremony with one of these substances might have been evolutionarily helpful.

    If so, it’s clearly not the case now.

  29. 29
    Dana K. says:

    Then there is Ram Dass who I admire and respect and some of his audio recordings are filled with love. But then he always tells the story of his studying LSD in Harvard and having deeply spiritual experiences.

    My guess with him is that he was highly evolved already and maybe an exception to the rule. Not getting standard results.

  30. 30
    Dana K. says:

    Maybe again there might have been a moment in time where it worked but as a rule and especially now quite damaging.

  31. 31

    DANA K., your Comments #28 and 30 are particularly astute.

    We’re living in the early years of The Age of Awakening. Practices that were helpful previously don’t work the same way now.

    Ha ha! You have, perhaps, been reading “THE NEW STRONG.” In any case, that will give you more perspective on why people no longer need drugs to experience astral levels. And if we do take those drugs, we may find it way harder to come back from the trip and re-engage in human objective reality.

  32. 32
    David B says:

    Not a big surprise, Rose, but I appreciate you putting it out there. Also, theres a few details I might have guessed but have not checked.

    When I saw his picture, my simple reaction was Eww!, with no interest in going further.

  33. 33
    David B says:

    I know that as I gain more skills, this will be less of an issue.

  34. 34
    David B says:

    (laughs) Kira – when I was in high school, I founded an acid rock band. Drugs where common in the 9-piece band, especially for the guys who had older brothers.

    For some reason, I had the sense to stay away from the hard stuff. Tried a little pot but didn’t like how some regulars I knew where, so I managed to avoid that too. Whew!

  35. 35
    Isabelle says:

    Having a friend who sometimes mentions that she wants to try Ayahuasca, I find it hard to make her understand that it is not good for her, for anyone.

    I think that’s because it is widely accepted in some life areas / lifestyles.

  36. 36
    Isabelle says:

    My friend doesn’t want to go through an Ayahuasca ceremony because she wants to evolve SPIRITUALLY, like so many other people, I have realized. (Well, people have many reasons why they want to do it…)

  37. 37
    Isabelle says:

    My friend has never liked anything spiritual. She is also an atheist. Still, she expects the drug to make her evolve as a human being (unfortunately). She can’t describe why exactly.

    But she has some experience with hallucinogenic drugs, and apparently she liked something that happened with her there. Once she described that it ‚emptied’ her of ‚the bad’.

  38. 38
    Isabelle says:

    This young woman is very smart otherwise.

    Unfortunately, she doesn’t believe that auras exist and that it is possible to read auras… Otherwise I could show her these highly informative blog posts about Ayahuasca.

    Everyone has to decide and learn by and for themselves…

  39. 39
    Isabelle says:

    Actually, I know of quite a few ‘smart’ (what does that mean anyway?) people who are fully convinced that drug-experiences have made them grow as humans.

    Many of them have never meditated or tried out healings ETC. So they act as if they are not interested in anything that has to do with ‚energy‘ otherwise.

  40. 40
    Isabelle says:

    Also a family member, who really totally dislikes ‘energy talk’, smokes pot on a daily bases and has done so for very long.

    That time I mentioned something about the astral to him, he got quite upset…

  41. 41
    Isabelle says:

    Five years ago, I think I first heard of Ayahuasca.

    Maybe it had become ‘mainstream’ in ‘new age’…I thought about trying it.

    I was a spiritual addict x 10 and wanted to get rid of pain and evolve spiritually. I’m so glad I did not try it out.

  42. 42
    Isabelle says:

    Kira, I can relate to considering taking LSD and the like, but then realizing that one’s own experiences without drugs and one’s imagination, could easily be compared to being ‘on drugs’.

    Happily this is not a big factor anymore…

  43. 43
    Isabelle says:

    I remember one occasion when I traveled to Barcelona and met up with someone. This someone was fully convinced that I was high. Without me being high at all.

    I guess, people thought I was high a few times, without me being it. …Unskilled empath, molecular empath, spiritual addiction…

    I don’t feel that ‘high’ anymore. And don’t appear to be either. Thanks to being more skilled as an empath and doing my best to not enter spitirual addiction.

    My fantasy and imagination – still colourful. 🙂

  44. 44

    Oh, ISABELLE, thanks for all these comments. #40 made me laugh out loud.

    How funny is that, I mean, really?

  45. 45

    About your Comment #38, you might send her a link anyway.

    She can read it like a story.

    I’d recommend sending a link to SAM’s article, partly because he’s not an RES pro… and partly because the article contains links to the three other Ayahuasca articles.

    Just sending a link one time, “You might find this interesting” might be just fine.

    (Especially if her English is anywhere near as good as yours!)

    Michael says:

    Hi Rose,

    I recently discovered your website and have found it quite interesting especially when it comes to your views about marijuana and the now more popular ayahuasca.
    I agree with many things your articles have to say about such mind altering substances.
    However I also feel very strongly your articles are very daming and biased to a certain way of looking at things. I feel many people have benefited from substances such as ayahuasca. It may not be the best way or the most spiritual but I have seen people use it as a catalyst to new levels of growth from which they could possibly get a head start to new levels of healing and have the impetus to continue without further use of the drug.
    I believe that certain plants are medicines which have been given to us to aid our healing granted they are used in the correct setting and rules. Everything has positive and negative qualities and it is more about using tools we have in life sensibly.
    Your articles just completely damn other tools for healing and in doing so you also drop a line here and there stating that with your program people wouldnt need anything else.
    I feel like your just as potentially danaging as “religion” which teaches fear as a way of people suscribing to it and staying away from other things.
    I intuitively feel you are yet another money maker looking to use certain tactics to win a customer.

    Have a good day

    Angelica B says:

    Hi Rose!

    I am writing because I have previously attended 2 Ayahuasca retreats in Peru within 2 years in between and I am scheduled for this year after 3 years of my last one.

  48. 48
    Angelica B says:

    Ayahuasca I believe, helped me help myself out of addiction and other really really self destructive patterns, habits, emotions and trauma I was carrying.

    As well as to be a more compassionate person.

  49. 49
    Angelica B says:

    This is what made the biggest impact, actually in ways I wasn’t expecting that have definitely made me, slowly through the years since I started, a much better person to others and myself.

    However in other aspects, I feel I’m actually worst than when I started and this includes I have a sense that I have lost my charm, the charm that I had in my personality that would attract people.

    Angelica B says:

    I am actually struggling really hard because I have a sense that I no longer connect with people or want to do so.

  51. 51
    Angelica B says:

    Anyway, I was a big pot user too years ago and now, everytime I smoke, after the high is gone in which I might get insights and get into this deep meditative state that leads me to positive thoughts and feelings that pull me back to the right direction according to the person I want to be, one which thoughts feelings and actions are aligned, I get this feeling of guilt, energy draining and just this gut feeling that tells me I shouldn’t be smoking weed at all even when I do it now very sporadically. Same happens when I get drunk.

  52. 52
    Angelica B says:

    So because this, I am considering the decision to quit both substances permanently and do the same with Ayahuasca after my last retreat just because I feel she gave me the tools I needed and I’m grateful but I also feel empowered to do it on my own will.

  53. 53
    Angelica B says:

    After reading a few articles about the effect on marihuana and alcohol on the aura and energetic fiel I read Ayahuasca has a similar effect, which I was completely unaware of.

    That got me into more research, which I haven’t found much info about and that also and led me to your page. Now I am doubting big time if I should go back to Peru or not.

  54. 54
    Angelica B says:

    I would appreciate enormously if you could explain to me in more detail how does it affect a person, if it is reversible and if so how, and just in general any opinion you could give me about the topic. Books to read about it. You name it ?

    Looking forward to hear your thoughts. Thank you beforehand!

    Dear ANGELICA B, I’m so impressed with the strength of your desire to be whole and also be yourself.

    The honesty of your comments here has impressed me to. So that I will do something I seldom do at this blog and give a bit of advice.

  56. 56
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Please be aware there is an alternative to the two extremes you mention, Ayahuasca (and other substances) OR go it alone.

    You could really use some help. Not because you lack strength and honesty and determination (just see what you wrote) but because all the substances in your background cause problems after the high wears off, even many years later.

  57. 57
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Plus there could be some problems that turned you towards seeking substance-related solutions.

    Where can you turn for help? A therapist you like who specializes in recovery. A 12-step program for recovery.

    Also, I do facilitate sessions of RES for people who are already getting support for recovery.

  58. 58
    Rose Rosetree says:

    From my perspective, drugs deposit STUFF (Energetic garbage at the astral level of a person’s aura, corresponding to the subconscious mind.)

    RES skills include many different healing centerpieces of Energy Healing, helping the soul to wake up.

    You can research other modalities for helping you, too. What matters is that you choose something that seems reasonable and can help.

  59. 59
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Again, don’t try to pile on the responsibilities of Recovery Expert to all the other ways you are struggling to improve your life. This would be unfair.

    And unkind to you!

    Rose Rosetree says:

    For educational reading, I’d recommend this set of 10 articles from the blog:

    “Pot, Marijuana, Grass, Weed, Ayahuasca, Other Drugs — Top 10 Articles”

    You can also search under any of those headings to find more articles, plus searching on “Alcohol.”

    Rose Rosetree says:

    Provided you don’t try to go it alone, heading towards sobriety, I have full confidence that you can grow a LOT and have a much, much better life.

    Thanks for reaching out, being willing to read, and for your uncommonly respectful comment (which I broke into small chunks, as is the style of this blog) as someone who has been a fan of Ayahuasca.

    Best wishes, Angelica B.!

    Have you ever personally met Guillermo or taken Ayahuasca…?

    Alice says:

    Bonjour j ai rencontré Guillermo. Votre lecture est très juste c est un prédateur sexuel et il boit beaucoup d alcool.

    J ai bu de l ayahuasca avec lui et elle m a montré le côté noir de Guillermo qui n est pas beau à voir.

    Je pense pas que Guillermo soit représentatif de l ayahuasca. Bravo pour votre lecture

  64. 64
    Alice, translated by Rose says:

    Hello. I have met Guillermo. Your post is quite accurate. He’s a sexual predator and he drinks a lot of alcohol.

    I took Ayahuasca with him and it showed me the dark side of Guillermo, which is not attractive to see. I think that Guilllermo is not typical of Ayahuasca. Thank you for your reading.

  65. 65

    Merci pour ajouter a notre conversation ici, ALICE.

    J’ai lu les auras de plusieurs gens qui jouent avec l’ayahuasca. Malheureusement, a mon avis, ceux qui souvent boivent de l’ayahuasca ne vont pas bien avec leur evolution spirituelle.

  66. 66

    Thanks for adding to our conversation here, ALICE.

    I’ve read auras of quite a few people who have experimented with Ayahuasca. Unfortunately, in my opinion, people who often use this drug become quite stuck in their personal growth.

    Cid says:

    I really have to take issue with this article. Guillermo Arévalo is one person among many spiritual guides and teachers who turned away from light and chose darkness. He made a choice to relinquish his integrity and chose instead to feed his desires and cravings. Ayahuasca didn’t make him do that, he chose darkness, power, and greed over love and light. So your aura reading on him reflects his personal choices. There have been many spiritual teachers throughout history who have chosen this same path and have taken gross advantage of the weak and vulnerable, look at Osho, Muktananda, and a laundry list of others. The greater the power the greater the temptation and the harder the fall. This is not unique to the spiritual world, nor is it unique to the Shamans that use Ayahuasca; particularly since the arrival of Western visitors with copious amounts of cash, that are streaming into a country that is fairly impoverished. What I resent is that you cast users of Ayahuasca as somehow trying to bypass their personal work, like a get rich quick scheme, which is anything but true. And if you’d ever participated in a legitimate, earnest, and honest ceremony, you would see how deeply these folks are longing to do their work, be honest with themselves, and do whatever it takes to honor God. I have attended several Ayahuasca ceremonies and I can assure you that it is anything but easy or a feel good “trip’. It is deeply humbling, and hard hard work. I saw belief systems in myself that I didn’t even realize I had been holding onto, that have kept me intrenched in behaviors that were not only self destructive, but also deeply hurtful to the people I love. I now bring those realizations into prayer and meditation, which is a daily practice, and when they show up as an option for how to respond, I now am able to see it and ask myself, “do you really want to buy into that old story, do you really want to close your heart and continue these old patterns that cause so much harm, and cut you off from others and yourself?” I get to make a choice, I get to say no to closing my heart. I get to choose honesty and vulnerability, humility and kindness. How is that bypassing my work? How is that harmful or unkind? I pray every day that I would move from love, compassion, and humility – I take that into meditation daily. I feel more compelled to sit in silence with my maker since having these experiences, and my spiritual practice is even more compelling, my commitment now my passion. I feel more compelled than ever to be a force for kindness, love, wisdom, and healing. So again I ask you, how is that a bad thing or negative. And by the way, I thought long and hard before I tried this path. I prayed that I was not trying to take the easy way out, that I was not trying to bypass my work, and in setting that intention, I believe that God has heard my prayers. So yeah, there may be folks that are trying to do just that, but they are everywhere and in every facet of spirituality. Again, this is not unique to the path of Ayahuasca. I agree that all forms of plant medicine are a double edged sword and need to be used with great care, respect, and attention to intention and setting. But then, is digitalis going to create a bad aura? So then folks with heart problems should stop taking it? Because that comes from the plant Foxglove. How about a child who has unstoppable seizures that no pharmaceutical medication can touch, and so live with seizure after seizure all through the say with no hope in sight. Should they not use cannabis, even thought it’s the only thing that gives relief where they can actually live a normal life? Or the vet with severe PTSD who uses micro doses of psilocybin and feels as if they can actually live life again, like they’ve been given a second chance? Yes, theses are non traditional medications, but the fact is, the majority of pharmaceuticals are from plants!!!!! Ayahuasca is a tool, it is not an instant boost to Nirvana. It is on you to be humble, sincere, and respectful in how you use that tool, not the other way around. I think you may be throwing the baby out with the bath water here.

    Cid says:

    By the way, it is a known fact that Guillermo Arévalo takes gross advantage of those that come to him, both financially and sexually. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that his aura is “almost unbelievable ugly”.

  69. 69
    Ethan says:

    Hi Cid, I as well worked very hard on myself choosing kindness/love/wisdom. I would recommend, as a treat to yourself, to have Rose or another RES practitioner read your aura.

    The aura doesn’t lie and you can find out truly how much you have grown as a person. The ultimate truth of all your endeavours, it is remarkable.

  70. 70
    Emily says:

    Cid, there is so much you have jammed into one extra huge long comment. But I’d like to address your shorter one.

    It might not take a rocket scientist to know his aura is ugly, but how close must someone get to someone like Guillermo before realising this truth?

  71. 71
    Emily says:

    Without aura reading, and without already travelling to these locations to sign up for the ayahuasca experience, how are people supposed to know the impacts of this experience on their aura?

    Or to know whether this shaman, or another, isn’t corrupted.

  72. 72
    Emily says:

    Without reading auras, people are left in the dark about the impact of working with Guillermo.

    Other shamans might not be corrupted and aura reading could tell you that also.

  73. 73
    Emily says:

    In this way, aura reading offers protection, consumer protection and protection from practices and individuals that could have a detrimental (and perhaps tragic) impact on people.

  74. 74
    Daniel says:

    Rose, its interested that you don’t comment on the positive comments about psychedelics on this article.
    Ayahuasca and other psychedelics are now studied again, because many people with for example PTSD are finally able to live a normal life again. Research show they also help for depression. They gave it to people with cancer, the patients lost their fear of death and many said the “trip” was the most profound experience in their whole life.
    I agree that psychedelics should be respected and are a very very powerful tool, but your article reads like the typical anti drug propaganda from 60 years ago.
    All the best

  75. 75

    Actually, DANIEL, my articles are based on detailed, sophisticated techniques about researching consciousness.

    We should be so lucky that expert researchers from 60 years ago used skills of Stage 21 Energetic Literacy!

  76. 76

    By contrast, I doubt that any research today about using drugs to help people lead “normal” lives includes any methodology to explore the shift in consciousness due to drugs causing the trusting patient to position consciousness at an astral level, rather than a human one.

    Thereby feeling no pain, but also suffering some consequences that really aren’t great at all, long-term.

    Lightning says:

    Hi Rose,

    thank you so much for this article, I agree with you and I want to warn you guys of a place in Iquitos called Caya Shobo where Guillermo Arevalo is a friend and “teacher shaman” and could be involved in ceremonies (which is not listed on their website).

  78. 78
    Lightning says:

    He is now building his umteenth retreat, because all of them seem to mysteriously get closed after a while.

    One of the shamans at Caya Shobo named Arturo tried to sexually molest me and then attacked me with black magic and darts for the whole of the retreat.

  79. 79
    Lightning says:

    Once during ceremony it actually felt like he was “pulling at my light” for a lack of a better word.

    I was inexperienced but found out later when I went to another retreat. The severe energy loss and pains in my chest suddenly made sense.

  80. 80
    Lightning says:

    People at and after the retreat told me about their nightmares which had the common theme of rape and violence.

  81. 81
    Lightning says:

    I also had stomach ulcers and a shaman told me it’s because they use unclean Ayahuasca.

    I remember the Ayahuasca there tasting very sweet like it had sugar in it and I recall a few people during my stay having stomach problems and digestive “flus” that we thought were just part of the process.

  82. 82
    Lightning says:

    I think they do something to the people, to be smitten with them and write good reviews but I came to the conclusion it’s a very dark place.

    One of the owners is a “shaman” who constantly pukes during ceremony.

  83. 83
    Lightning says:

    I could detail more here but this should be enough.

    Be careful out there and always ask who your shaman trained with.

  84. 84
    Lightning says:

    I’ve been to several retreats now and can not recommend a single one of them.

    If it was for me I’d tell you that there are other forms of energy work out there just as powerful, that you can safely perform on yourself and that don’t cost you any money or exploit you or the plants of the Amazon, which is all these unconscious shamans do.

  85. 85
    Lightning says:

    And also know that a lot of people make these brujeria experiences but then are to scared to write a review so what you read online often means nothing.

    Especially if it’s only perfect five star reviews you should be more suspicious than anything.

  86. 86
    Lightning says:

    During that second retreat after Guillermo, I also had a ‘sensational vision’ of his energy and got freaked out, because I felt like there was no soul there anymore, like it had left off and just bad energy was left.

    Now I don’t know if such a thing can be, but it was definitely a ‘digusting’ feeling just as you describe your aura reading here.

  87. 87

    Thanks for sharing your experience and advice, LIGHTNING. Golly, I wish my German were as good as your English!

    Regarding your Comment #83, here’s a better way to “Be careful out there.” Don’t take drugs for recreational or spiritual purposes. Period. This set of 10 articles can help motivate you to avoid substances like Ayahuasca.

  88. 88

    Regarding your Comment #84, here’s a surprise for you, LIGHTNING. Only 25% of my website and blog concerns Energy Spirituality Aura READING. (Like this article.)

    Another 25% is about Energy Spirituality Aura HEALING. (Like this online workshop series for self-healing, which is the one I’d most recommend for you, based on what you’ve written here.)

  89. 89

    And perhaps you’d be interested in our recent series of articles that aim to help folks develop discernment about energy healing techniques. Please bring your experience of “other forms of energy work out there just as powerful, that you can safely perform on yourself” and come prepared to gain perspective that might help you further.

    I’d recommend you start here.
