The feminine half of the medicinal brew known as Ayahuasca, is called Chacruna. She is considered Queen of the Forest. The great Mother of all plants. The Queen of Heaven.
She is a jungle plant whose leaves contain the DMT side of the admixture. She comes to you as a woman of light.
Near the beginning of my Ayahuasca journey, a few years ago, I had a powerful Ayahuasca experience where I fell asleep. When I woke up I went through an experience that I can only describe as comprehending and living the whole span of the evolution of life on Earth in a matter of seconds. Next I was rocketing through the cosmos so fast and furious that it truly STARtled me, and just as I was thinking to myself HOLY FUCK!!!! a woman of light used her hand to stop me and I suddenly felt like I was being cushioned and slowed down as if I was in a cloud. The message was "Not so fast honey, take it easy."
Next I was floating through a valley of neon dancing rainbows, which cheered me up immensely, and then all I remember was falling deep into an abyss of darkness where I was witness to a source of light and beauty that all I could think of was "This is clearly the source of all creativity. All art, everything is inspired by this source." Next I distinctly remember thinking that perhaps it is good to experience this level of revelation slowly, rather than all at once.
It is taught that the Queen paints the visions of the experience. Maestro Flores has also taught me that by taking Chacruna you help yourself and others remember each other. For instance, I can take the plant and people who don't take it will begin to remember me from our past lives together. She awakens all.
Below is a short video of the Maestro singing an icaro for the Chacruna plant. An icaro is a magical song of gratitude to the plants. In exchange for the vibrations of the various songs, the plant spirits impart powers to the shaman and healing to his/her patients. He is also drawing a picture of the plant as he sings the song. The idea is that by singing this song of gratitude for the plant, and by drawing it, the specific plant spirit that is being invoked, downloads information and teaches one how to prepare the plant medicinally.

At the end of the Maestro's first visit to Manitoba in 2006, we where in ceremony and I remember distinctly hearing the most fine and soft female voice. She told me "I am here NOW." I knew this to be the voice of Chacruna.
