I was born in the Amazon forest, Santarem Para Brazil to be more precise. My mother’s family live there, and my father’s family live in south Brazil. Although I was born there I grew up in the south of Brazil in a city called Florianopolis by the beach. It’s a massive contrast from one town to the other, with an 8-hour flight between cities!
However, in my school holidays Mum and I would go up north and visit her family while Dad stayed south working. As a kid, I had no idea of how these experiences would reflect, impact and mould my life in the future. I played with my cousins in the Amazon river, we ran into the jungle at times and discovered much about the forest; not even aware of its majesty and its powers and dangers.
What really gets to me is the fact that, as a kid, I had no fear. We jumped into the muddy waters of the Amazon river not worrying about the dangers; piranhas, anacondas, alligators and many other massive predatory creatures that were right in the river.
I had to move all the way to London to find out more about the spiritual power of the forest. It was like it was calling me back.. As if home was calling me back.
Last Friday, the 20th of March, I had the great opportunity to once again merge with the spirit of the forest. In such a special cosmic day, where Earth, Sun and Moon were all in harmony, I too was looking into myself and finding stillness.
I had heard about Kambo before, but never really had a chance to learn more about it or experience it, not until last Friday; when I met the Frog Spirit.
Things always happen in the way they are supposed to. I was trying to change my flight to the 20th but it turned out I wasn’t able to re-schedule it, not even if I paid the extra fees. I was a little annoyed by it, but my spirit guides told me not to worry and said they had something in store for me. A day later I was invited by Maren Lander to take part in this Kambo ceremony that should be happening on Friday the 20th.
I was very sure this was meant to be; even so I made sure to ask my Shaman and other trustworthy people in my life about the ceremony. I guess it’s always nice to be reassured on your decisions. I read more about the power of Kambo and got ready for the ride.
When it comes to any spiritual ceremony, intention is the most important thing. My intention was to clean my body of toxins and get it ready for my next spiritual journey – the journey of the heart – I’m off to Hawaii on Tuesday the 24th for a personal quest of the heart.
While I waited with the others taking part in the ceremony, I was wondering how hard it would be. And not knowing what to expect, it’s one thing to read about it, but another thing entirely to actually do it!
Another crucial point of any ceremony is the Shaman. It’s very important to feel connected to the person performing any spiritual ceremony. They will be guiding you into this journey and looking after your soul, making sure it comes back to your body once it’s all over. You need to feel safe and trust this person; you don’t want to leave any part of your spiritual body behind when you return from this energetic expansion.
Anyway, the ceremony was very intense and also painful as I had to deal with a great amount of pain and letting go. I had some visions which are very hard to remember; it looked like some sort of tribe working by the river.. I do not recall what place or time, but I was too busy fighting the purging and the pain. As I said it was intense, the Shaman was very aware of my struggle and made sure I was protected and encouraged me to let go of the pain together with all the toxins I had been holding on to.
After the purging came the stillness and the lightness. The feeling of wanting to dance in the jungle with the spirit of the frog.
I’m still processing this experience before deciding if I’ll do the next two ceremonies recommended. So far I would say yes. I’m up for it.
Anyway, in case you want to know more, here is more on my Kambo experience:

May the spirits of the forest connect you with mother nature, may they cleanse your body so you can elevate your frequencies and be in sync with the source and life.
