My 2nd Kambo experience
The sacred frog
Frog, toad and plant medicines are having a huge surge in popularity right now, as many of us on this Planet look to nature for our healing and expansion of our consciousness.
Bufo, Ayuhuasca, psillocybin, marajuana to name a few of the famous ways to experience the other dimentions of life.
Kambo is different from the others as you do not lose yourcellf in the way you can with other medicines. You are aware of everything that is going on, there is nothing to fear, except feeling nausious and being sick, and it only last around 30 minutes at most.
So worst case scenario, its over before you know it.
But it is not just the purging that creates the healing effect, the excretion contains peptides, here is a bit about the science from Planet Kambo
Peptides bind to receptor sites on the outer surface of biological cells, and this binding serves a variety of functions in the body and brain. Often they act as a form of message or signal, causing the cell to change what it’s doing. For example to manufacture and release more of a particular hormone or neurotransmitter, or the opposite. In this way they can influence a variety of biological processes, ranging from moods and thought patterns in the brain to muscle contractions and digestion in the body.
Now with our understanding of the gut biome and how it makes us feel, it seems obvious that a clean up of the inners is going to make you feel better, plus the signalling system works with the bodys intelligence and heals on many levels.
First time I had 3 gateways put on my arm, a beginners dose which was the perfect way to start.
This time I had 5 put on my leg. Jinty did one test spot and watched me before she administed the full dose.
Before we started I had to drink 2 litres of water. I had to get her to put some warm in it as I struggle drinking ice cold water unless its 30 degrees. This made it way easier for me to get that amount down.
Then the medicine was put on top of the gateways (burned skin) and it tingled a bit more from the burn than the medicine I think.
Then I got this warm glow all over like before, but it was stronger this time.
After a few short minutes I started to purge, it happened spontaneously, and it was good to get that 2 litres of water out tbh. I got a bit of cramp in my abs but it wore off quickly as I got the water up.
It sounds disgusting, but you are going for bile, and we got it. It came from my boots, I could feel it working perfectly. Then I drank some more water, Jinty did something at the gateways and I purged again.
I dont mind being sick but obviously feeling sick aint great. But as it is such a short process you know it will be over soon and you will feel better immediately it wears off.
Jintys cabin is a fab place to do it, you are looking out onto the hills, she played music and sang and played her drum, it was wonderful, the words and the thanks to the frog.
I was fully supported and loved her passion for this ceremony. Watching people throwing up, well it would not be my preferred job. But as with Jennifer that I did my first one with, they know that deep healing is taking place and it feels like a sacred process and they are happy to be of service.
When it passed I lay down beside the log burner, the peace with a bit of tiredness set in. She gave me tea, some snacks and a delicious plate of vegetable soup and I was back in the game.
I came home and chilled the rest of the day, then had a magic sleep and woke up with clarity and purpose today.
Huge thanks to the frog and Jinty for this experience, I will definitely be doing it again.
Not only is it great to have this in Scotland, but in Argyll in this beautiful setting, we are blessed.
This is Jintys facebook page with her contact details here, she also does a clinic in Edinburgh.
