Helen Keller took Iboga?
Well no. But the transformational experience she went through could be likened to that which can be achieved through an Iboga experience. How? Because le bois sacre, the sacred wood - Iboga, has the ability to provide insight. Neural pathways exist in the mind. They can be active and they can be inactive. I have always personally sought out psychedelics as a tool to open up neural pathways that I may not be using. Iboga definitely helped me with this. I recently read this quote from David Bohm (world renowned physicist and natural philosopher whom I admire immensely) and I instantly saw a relevance to iboga
“I thought of another case where you can see the power of perception. It was this case of Helen Keller—you may have heard of her, she was blind, deaf, and dumb. When she couldn’t communicate she was rather like a wild animal. They found this teacher, Ann Sullivan who played a game, as it were, to put the child’s hand in contact with something, that was her only sense, and scratch the word on her hand. First it was clearly nothing but a game—she didn’t understand what was going on. Then Helen Keller recalls that one morning she was exposed to water in a glass and the name was scratched, and in the afternoon to water in a pump, and the name was scratched, and suddenly she had an insight, a shattering insight, and it was that everything has a name. If water was one thing in all its different forms, this one name, water, could be communicated to the other person who used the same name. From there on she began to use language and in a few days she learned words. In a few days she was making sentences and her whole life was transformed. She was no longer this violent wild person but entirely different. So you can see that this perception transformed everything.” - David Bohm Interview
Helen Keller went on to study at university and to publish many books.
As soon as Helen Keller understood the abstract concept that a name existed to describe water in different states she connected a neural pathway in her mind. An understanding that she could not attain previously because of her lack of sensory input data. This new connection allowed her to make major changes in her life - to finally begin to learn and understand language, to read, to write and to study. To create a new life experience for herself. It was the concept, an insight. A knowledge that everything has a name became an experience for Helen Keller.
Everything exists as thought first and foremost.
This story of Helen Keller and the amazing perseverance of her teacher, should inspire us all that we can change our reality. The physical circumstances that appear to bind you are first created by you. The life you are living is the one you have created.
Helen Keller behaved like a wild animal at times because she could sense that there was more to life than she was getting. When there is a conflict in your life, what you believe, as opposed to what you receive, it becomes a problem. A frustration that could evolve as an emotional state such as depression, a constant repetitive action or if sustained for too long, a physical state, such as a malady or sickness.
While you may have your five senses, you could have limited your happiness through your own sensory data, through a lack of observation. You may have learnt bad habits or maybe in your formative years ages 1 to 7 (when your mind is in theta state), you were not in a place that established good belief systems for you. Plant medicines, such as iboga, allow and aid in an opening up of your neural pathways, to think in different ways, to change habitual thought patterns, and experience becomes knowledge.
Never are you bound to continue on one path. Everything is open to change, everything exists at once, multiple lifetimes, probable personalities all existing as one living entity.
If you have not had success on your own. Iboga can help as a guide, just as Ann Sullivan helped Helen Keller, to connect neural pathways. But it's no free ride. Ultimately, you still need to do the work.
