During my last Ayahuasca ceremony I had a vision in which I was in a pitch dark room and came upon a glowing being looking through the bottom drawer of a large wooden dresser. It turned when it felt me there, and looked up over its shoulder at me. It’s face was glowing too hard for me to make out, but I heard it ask, “Is it OK if I look through here?” “Yes,” I answered, and watched as it turned back and continued to go through the drawer. Then it was gone and the evening’s journey continued.
I wondered what it meant and why it asked me for permission if it was already going through the drawer? It wasn’t until the next day that I realized I was entering a new level of healing and this was the medicine’s way of showing me it was going deeper into my being.
