This is a great intention for getting disappointed. La luna del amazonas is a healing center, and our shamans use the medicine for healing. While its true that ayahuasca sometimes produce visions, it's certainly not a guarantee, nor is it needed for the healing to take place. Many times the medicine work in very subtle ways balancing your auric field and your chakras. Once your energy field is restored, you can open your third eye and receive visions. This is a very individual process, for some participants it happens the first time, and for others it might take 20 ceremonies to get there. The healing from the medicine is in any case always received.
