The past year for Mobius 29, a resident of Belgium, has been a year of transformations, largely thanks to an Ayahuasca ceremony he attended on June 8, 2018, in the Netherlands, organized by OMMIJ. He now regards that day as his ‘new birthday’, such was the transformation.
Before embarking on his Ayahuasca journey, Mobius 29 led a life that, from external viewpoints, seemed successful and satisfying. “I worked hard, earned a lot of money, had a beautiful girlfriend,” he says. However, despite these outward signs of success, he felt internally unfulfilled. He was living from his ego, he says, and felt that something was missing.
Driven by these feelings of unfulfillment, Mobius 29 began a personal development journey, reading books, listening to podcasts on spirituality, psychology, and self-improvement. During this journey, he came across plant medicine and specifically Ayahuasca. After much research and ignoring many signs, he could no longer ignore the call of Ayahuasca.
At OMMIJ, Mobius 29 participated in four Ayahuasca ceremonies. His experience each time was overwhelming.
“The staff is very experienced, the guides know exactly what to do. They help you go through what you have to go through and help you grow.”
But what exactly did he learn from his experiences with Ayahuasca? “The biggest lesson for me was absolutely dissolving my ego and thinking from my true self, acting from my heart, my actual emotions,” he says. Thanks to Ayahuasca, he learned to appreciate the simple fact of being alive, instead of always looking for external validation or material things.
Mobius 29 would like to share some tips for those considering attending an Ayahuasca ceremony. “Don’t treat it as a recreational drug. Treat it with respect. Follow the right diet, set your intentions,” he says. He also encourages people to approach any ‘demons’ or dark spots they come across during the ceremony with love. “They’re there for a lesson, to help you grow.”
Despite the possible fears and challenges, Mobius 29 believes the experience is absolutely worth it. “If you’re still doubting about doing Ayahuasca and you’ve come this far in this story, I think we both know the answer.”
His story is a testament to the powerful, life-changing effects an Ayahuasca ceremony can have. For Mobius 29, it was an opportunity to discover a deeper layer of himself, dissolve his ego, and find a greater sense of fulfillment and gratitude for life. His experience can serve as an inspiration for others who may be afraid to take the same step, and remind them that facing personal challenges and confronting our ‘demons’ can sometimes be the most rewarding journey of all.
