Like many of us who are awakening, we are taking our inner power back and harnessing it for ourselves so that we may be of service to others. Included in this way of unpacking our power, some of us are called to witness and to be supporters/sitters in entheogenic sessions. Lane Belone is but one of those people — he recently visited Peru as a guide in both ayahuasca and san pedro ceremonies as a helping hand to assist in unlocking other beings’ consciousnesses. In this episode, we touch on what these plant medicines are and Lane’s knowledge of what it takes to be a personal asset in these ceremonies.
I ask Lane, “Do you think we all have the power to do this, or do you have to have special training or have a gift to be a guide?”
Well, that depends. If one claims to be a Shaman, then they must have serious knowledge, training, and awareness of the historical/ancestral roots of the practice and the spiritual energies they are invoking. Anybody may call themself a Shaman, but that does not mean they have been taught properly or assimilated the practice properly. The role of a Shaman goes deeper than light energy work, such as massage or reiki.
If you want to be a guide or sitter, like Lane, then it is much more accessible. I suggest this is due to three critical factors: you have to be both aware and present in the process; have a depth of connection with the people you are guiding, whether that be because of personal history or a trust that develops upon meeting; and have a vital awareness of the effects of the engeogenic plants or previous experience with them to be able to intuit what to do inside the situation. I know, because I have been present at multiple Bufo Alvarius experiences (the most potent God-inducing substance on the planet) — never having taken this myself but with enough entheogenic experience, personal connection, and presence to be a calm force in the unfolding process. With both intuition and knowledge, one can smoothly either experience or guide in the entheogenic ceremony.
