Migrated topic.

After getting loads of questions about aya in the welcome area, I decided to make a Visual Diagram for Ayahuasca.

Please note: This is just a basic diagram. It does not contain ALL information, just basics. As we all know there is more to learn all the time. I just wanted to design something simple and effective to put in my signature.

Comments/critiques/additions welcome. I won't add all suggestions, just anything necessary that I missed.

I cited ms_manic_minxx and her "All about aya <3" thread at the end for people to check out if they aren't satisfied with the diagram.
If you have a problem with this minxx please PM me or post here I will be more than happy to remove that part. Your guide is very helpful and I think it is a good reminder to have on the diagram.

Paz, luz, y hyperspace.

P.s. the image is compressed due to the attachment upload. the image itself is actually larger and smoother/higher quality and will be once it is complete and uploaded to the server.

Looking nice! Having the words fit in the bubble is much easier on the eyes - although reading inside the drops is sorta hard. Any way to remove the water drops in favor of something easier to read?

:d
 
What if I changed the opacity of the drops from 75% to something more like 25%?
I do want it to be easy on the eyes. I sometimes forget I have super eyes.

Edit: I changed the water drop opacity to 30% let me know if that makes a significant difference.

Also it helps to download and view the .png on your computer rather than viewing the compressed attachment.
 
That's better. You might also want to consider padding, i.e. adding space between the edge of the words and edge of the tear-drop. Something like 5 or 10 pixels would be nice. Just a thought.
 
OK. Let me mess around with resizing the water drop layers and see if I can find something suitably padded.




EDIT: Done. Let me know what you think.
 
awesome guide and compilation of information! Its very helpful, i love it:d you should make one for Pharmahuasca as well; i'm sure it will help many here including me. The sticky in the Pharma section is 11 pages long, and crucial information is all scattered throughout the pages.
thanks for this!<3

Not a bad idea, Phantastica. Glad it could be helpful. I will make that my next project in the future.
 
:d

one minor typo in 3rd sentence of brewing drop info: I think you meant 'shredded' but wrote 'shressed'

also regarding mimosa: i would add, in addition to the tannin info, that its recommended to first decant your mimosa brews in the fridge -and pour the liquid off the gunk-before drinking (or the whole caapi/mimosa brew if they were brewed together). I'm not sure how many people do this? anyone; feel free to chime in if you find its ok to disregard this step. imo there are definitely a lot of noticeably nauseating solids that fall out

that is all :]

i love it! excellent work house
 
Great! You may want to add a note on tremors, just mentioning that they are a normal part of heavy dosing. For me, tremors are how I know the medicine is really doing its thing. But it's not just tremors, these tremors are accompanied by the strangest thoughts, often the most powerful points in the journey. A person might feel like they are possessed at this point, aya spirits coursing through their whole body. Just some thoughts on what to expect. Some people call this phenomenon, "shamanic shakes". I'm sure a lot of people feel like they're going to die or explode at this point. It will calm itself down.
 
I know what you mean. I sometimes feel like I am popping incessantly like a balloon. Thanks for the suggestion I will definitely add that.

Ala shakti shakes ?
 
Great work. It realy contains all things you realy need to know when you want to use ayahuasca. The only thing where i differ with the diagram is that i would consider 10 grams of chaliponga a high dose and 15 grams a very high dose.
