Amaru or female shamans, jugs of ashes, and spirits in the universe are part of the Ayahuasca ceremonies.

Then, after that, they will also get the experience of flying to an infinite world that may seem as real as the real world.

Indeed, for some community groups in the Amazon, drinking a little Yaje is one thing that they usually do on many occasions for various purposes. For them, Yaje is a kind of medicines that potentially treat physical and mental disorders. The famous Amahuaca hunters also relate the sensitivity they have when hunting with the ability to see animal spirits they get from drinking Yaje that they can read the habits and movements of their preys.
