How Does Ayahuasca Work? Bliss Ayahuasca Retreat Center (Tulum, Mexico) [Updated 2022]

The path of spiritual evolution, ascension and enlightenment is also the path of self-love. As such, it is necessary to remember these experiences and heal ourselves using the process of emotional integration to move forward on our spiritual, and life, path.


  1. TRANSFORMATION: ayahuasca brings our unconsciousness into the light of our awareness for remembering, healing, and expansion.
  2. MIRROR & AMPLIFIER: the plants function like a combined mirror and amplifier, reflectively showing us who we really are.
  3. AWARENESS EXPLANSION: our unconscious is magnified and reflected into our conscious knowing for our growth.
  4. REMEMBER & BALANCE: ayahuasca allows us to see, know, and balance the forgotten and hidden aspects of ourselves.
  5. FUTURE-SELF: first-hand experience of being a spiritually evolved version of ourselves.
  6. SUPER-POWERS: activates our latent psychic abilities, including telepathy, clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvoyance, & channelling.
  7. DETOXIFICATION: purification catalyst, flushes toxins, traumas, and false beliefs from physical, emotional, and mental bodies.
  8. UNDENIABLE: strong spiritually connective experience.

Dimethyltryptamine: DMT

It is scientifically accepted that synthesis of the psychoactive plant compound dimethyltryptamine or DMT is that which causes the “spiritual-encounters” or “out-of-body visionary states” experienced when drinking ayahuasca, though very little is understood about the involvement of DMT in human evolution.

Human DMT, also known also as ormus, inner gold, ambrosia, and kundalini phire, is a very complex matter substance which holds the potential to become antimatter.

It is produced in the pineal gland of the brain – the third eye chakra energy centre – and has an almost identical molecular structure to the plant DMT in ayahuasca.

When we dream or visualise, our pineal gland third eye projects a real visual landscape into the antimatter/dreamspace/non-physical dimensions. Accordingly, it is usual for part of the ayahuasca retreat experience to feel like lucid, awake dreaming.

As we synthesise the plant DMT, the veil of separation lifts between the physical, matter, and non-physical, anti-matter, realms of reality: we remember and experience our true nature as multidimensional beings.

Experience Evolved Future Self on Ayahuasca Retreat

During the ascension process, our pineal gland grows from the size of a pea to that of a walnut. As it does so, it produces a greater volume of endogenous DMT, a fundamental and intrinsic compound to the light-body transformation process.

Our shadow side, when unintegrated, stagnant, and buried, prevents DMT production. As we integrate our shadow, we embody more light through the inner alchemical process of transmuting low frequency, light-inactivated trauma into high frequency, light-activated, balanced codex.

We literally become lighter, molecularly holding a greater mass, brightness, brilliance, and volume of light, which in turn increases the volume of DMT produced in the pineal gland.

When we drink ayahuasca, we are able to experience being a more spiritually evolved version of ourselves, as we essentially “borrow” the structurally near-identical plant DMT in place of our own.

Activate Dormant Memory

Synthesis of the plant DMT temporarily activates sections of our quantum DNA, bringing our dormant, forgotten memories, back on-line. This remembering of our divine selves is perhaps the most powerful and impactful effect of ayahuasca. It helps us remember who we are and why we are here.

The process will be unique to everyone, though will certainly occur in stages across multiple ceremonies. Considering that we are vast multidimensional beings, there are many aspects of self to remember and re-integrate.

As mentioned previously in the DNA section, this memory or knowing can be full awareness of one’s previous or future incarnations, quantum or alternate selves, star lineages, as well as ancestral memories and genetic markers.

This memory can also be a feeling of belonging within a particular community, group, or to humanity itself, often including a deep sense of purpose and mission.

Switch-On Your 95% Unused Brain Capacity

There is substance behind the well-known supposition, that humans use only 5% of their brain power capacity.

During the spiritual evolution process, many brain chemistry changes take place, including the production of new synapses along with many other processes, some of which are similar to those which biologists know as neuroplasticity.

In addition to the pineal gland, the pituitary gland (known as the fourth eye) also grows from the size of a pea to that of a walnut.

Experience Multi-Dimensional Abilities Like Telepathy & Channelling

The pineal gland’s function develops further as it grows as part of the ascension process. It activates its “higher-self” as a “spiritual-antenna” which can pick up multidimensional frequencies. This then leads to the onset of abilities including telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and channelling.

DMT is an essential component in the functioning of these evolved pineal gland abilities. Electrical conductivity through DMT and plasma crystals within the pineal gland activate the antenna function, and the resulting “psychic” senses and skills.

Born mediums or psychics produce naturally higher volumes of DMT than average, though all humans hold the codex for potential light-body expansion, increased DMT production and thus the activation of these multidimensional gifts.

These abilities allow one clear communication and interaction with the spiritual, non-physical, anti-matter dimensions of reality, and the subsequent entities and energies which reside there.

During ayahuasca retreat, it is very common to hear accounts of participants communicating, through feeling and thinking, with self-conscious, spiritual beings. This section gives a high-level explanation of this process.

Boost Pineal Gland DMT Production

For a ready and committed soul, our trailblazing teachings, and techniques, are currently among the most direct and effective methods on the planet for rapidly remembering divine truth and progressing on the path of ascension (also known as the journey of human evolution, spiritual evolution, self-love, light-body activation, liberation & enlightenment).

We are here to serve others in remembering their divine self and purpose in any way we can. Catalysing, channelling, teaching, guiding, we are eternally open and flexible to support souls in whatever unique way is most effective for them.
