The Muse / Some bits & pieces

Hi everyone
This autumn I took part in an Aya workshop with Rini and Norberto in Holland. During day 2 which, at times, reminded me of a scene out of ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ they played us the audios of these clips. Beautiful and calming moments in the eye of the storm.

I’m reading Tolle’s ‘A New Earth’ at the moment and I liked this paragraph:

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.”


I hope 2014 is both peaceful and exciting for all you good people.

Lala, Blue Tiger and Cal…I didn’t write anything at the time cos I just didn’t know what to say, but I still sometimes think of your departed friend. I hope he’s somewhere good right now.

Micro-Dosing / Re: Iboga Microdosing Guide
« on: December 30, 2013, 04:44:59 AM »
Hi Bancopuma
I’ll keep it brief cos I don’t want to dilute(he he!) this thread further.
Basically I started early in the morning, took 2/3rds of the dose, and the rest after 2 or 3 hours. Although I spent pretty much the whole day in bed, I was able to move around, go to the toilet etc, without much difficulty and eat some toast after 4 or 5 hours. One good thing was that I could write down most of the insights for later use. The first time I stayed awake the whole following night; the 2nd and 3rd times I managed a couple of hours sleep.

Since I haven’t experienced a flood, it’s hard to comment on the relative long-term usefulness of these ‘trips.’ I think they laid some issues on the table for me to see in plain sight, made clear the pros and cons of trying to take action (ie. the potential rewards v the possibility of further pain through rejection/failure) but, as I said above, didn’t really give me the boost in strength/confidence to see those changes through or resolve some of the underlying conflicts, resulting in a hugely instructive but also painful year.

Enough! I’ll let you all get back to the tinctures! I’ll be taking my morning drop in a few minutes…

Micro-Dosing / Re: Iboga Microdosing Guide

Hi Lala
No I haven't used the tincture before...just started yesterday and, at 1 drop per day, I should have enough for at least a week. If I feel anything from it I'll let you know.

I've tried micro-dosing a few times but it doesn't seem to agree with me. As soon as I start to feel an effect on my mood, I also start getting insomnia, which is not good as I have problems with sleeping already.

I've taken what I think has been referred to here as "microbursts"....5g of RB twice and 7g once. Each experience was full of insight but maybe, as others have mentioned, not strong enough to really knock out some of my deep-seated negative thought patterns.

Haven't had the courage to do a flood yet.

Thanks for your interest

Thanks Bancopuma. I still have a tiny sample bottle of Maurice's tincture which, after reading your post, I found lying at the back of a drawer. I started with your recommendations this morning!

Thanks for this thread Blue Tiger and others. I've spent the last hour or so checking this out on the web. Verynortyboy, the link you posted is great...fascinating stuff! He seems to be very keen on something called Wild Pine Pollen too.

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for the site!
Also to Kampun and EN if they still come to have a peek...

Hi Lickle Emu,
I’ve taken 5g rootbark a couple of times…the most Iboga I’ve taken in one sitting. I also found it quite a healing and insightful experience. The first time I was also awake the whole night so the second time I started at 8.30 am which allowed my to get a few hours sleep the following night.

I’m not sure of the effects of Diazepam on Iboga or the healing so can't help you there.

Are you doing your ceremony with Maria Straatman? I’m really curious so please let us know how you get on. Safe journey and all the best to you!

« on: November 05, 2013, 03:42:59 AM »
Hi,
Firstly, thanks Kampun for your info...Maria sounds like a very interesting person.
Emu, yes my recent experience was also something I won't forget in a hurry. Terrifying, shattering, loving and beautiful in (roughly!) equal measure. Right now it feels very positive!

Be well

Hi Lickle Emu
Thanks for your posts...I find quite a lot in common with my own situation in life. I've dabbled with Iboga but would also like to do a full flood some day. I recently took part in my first Aya workshop in Holland and it was an amazing experience. Wonderful country!

I had a look at Maria's site which seems very interesting. On my search engine she comes up as connected to holotropic breathwork too, or could that be a different Maria Straatman in north Holland? Seems unlikely.

On the issue of heart/liver tests...I personally wouldn't like to tell my GP about Iboga and I wonder would they be forthcoming with free tests anyway? Someone mentioned on this site many months ago that if you were feeling extra cheeky, you could go to A&E complaining of heart problems and they'd have to give you a full check-up! Otherwise I searched for "liver panel test london" and it came up with a few results...private clinics who charge obviously.

I really hope you stick around to give us feedback of your experiences with Maria and Iboga. I wish you the best of luck and a great outcome!

Hi Skinny,
What can I say?
You seem to have lots of knowledge and info to contribute here…I found some links you posted a few weeks ago very useful. But what’s to be gained by this sniping at Kampun?

Ok I admit he can come across as harsh sometimes but look at what he contributes here. Most of us flit in and out of this site, giving a little and probably taking a little more. Kampun’s here every day, giving info, answering questions, trying to help….he’s not perfect, as none of us are….but he’s giving a lot here.

What is it you want to achieve with all this? Would you rather he left? Take out all his posts and see how much we would lose.

Maybe you feel he’s insulted or hurt you in the past. Could you explain that honestly to him? Maybe through PM’s?

I’m not Kampun’s mate – I have no idea who he is in real life. But when you mention his cyber alter egos it feels like an insinuation to me…as if you’re accusing him of being a fraud. If you feel that he is somehow harming people or trying to rip people off, that’s a serious matter you need to come up with some evidence. But otherwise it just feels pointless to me.

Skinny I need this site! It has helped me navigate my way through the fog of the last period of my life. Kampun’s posts have been the single most important contribution to that in my opinion. Please reconsider your stance and try to let this go. People do such terrible things to each other in real life and still they sometimes manage to forgive and move on. It’s good to have you here contributing but couldn’t you find it in your heart to communicate with Kampun in a different way? Maybe he will also respond in kind.

With respect to both of you
Lissos

Hi,
I don’t know exactly what to make of all this…whether it’s a good thing or not I have no idea. What I wanted to say is that, while skimming this forum every day, and also in reply to my few previous posts I have felt tremendous dedication, caring and knowledge from KP, for which I’m very grateful.

I’m not taking any sides here so please don’t take it that way. I think KP is well able to stand up for himself if that’s what he wants to do and I’m not casting aspersions on anyone else or their opinions…I don’t feel I understand the situation well enough to make further comments but just felt it important for me to make the above point.

So, I would like to say thank you to KP and ALL posters (even to David Gold and his spam I guess  ;), who kind of kicked this whole debate off if I remember correctly) for their contributions in the year or so I’ve been reading this site, which has been a great help to me on my personal journey and education. Your efforts aren’t wasted…on me, at least.

Also a particular thanks to Skinny for putting up those links. I just read one article and, as I’m looking to take part in my first Aya Ceremony in the not too distant future, the rest look very useful too.

I don’t feel that comfortable writing (I can talk the hind legs of a donkey though!) so I’ll leave it at that.

Thanks and be well all of you

Thanks for these Blue Tiger! They're great!

I don't contribute much (i don't feel like writing often) but I still read the site every day! Great people here...and I'm still fascinated by the insights and changes I have experienced with this plant spirit Iboga...

Take care and be well everyone who contributes to  the site....
Thanks!!
