During my first ayahuasca journey in 1993, Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe appeared in the sky and rained down beams of loving-kindness and told me she had been leading me forward to both Mexico and New Mexico for many years. The jaguar and turtle allies protected me while I alternated between lying down in the circle with my head toward the candle shrine and sitting up singing when the staff was passed my way. The spirits in the land became visible and the deep energetic substrate of the medicine pulsed through my body like jeweled serpents made of light.
