Rapé & Applicators
The traditional usage of Rapé
Rapé (correctly pronounced 'Ha-Pei') is made of tobacco and medicines that help to detach entities, energy parasites, and contaminations and interferences in the internal dialogue. When you take a puff of Rapé, the medicine immediately begins to clean, sort out, and align your energy field, especially the centers or chakras of the third eye and crown. It moves up and down the spine, tracing the Tree of Life. It is medicine for one's spiritual vision, helping us to cleanse the mind and stop the internal dialogue, to be truly present to be able to see beyond our interpretations.
It is also medicine for the body, helping to expel mucus and parasites from the frontal and paranasal sinuses. It eliminates headaches, dullness, and daze, by decompressing the pressure of the cranium.
In contemporary Amazonia, sharing rapé is a common social activity with spiritual, pre-Columbian roots. Rapé is considered to be a sacred, shamanic medicine. It’s traditionally prepared by a knowledgeable shaman, however, the art of sacred rapé preparation has been passed on to non-indigenous rapé enthusiasts, so you can find makers of high-quality rapé outside tribal communities and in other parts of Brazil.
Sharing rapé was traditionally done in a ritualistic way. Because the medicine can have stimulating or psychoactive effects (depending on what plants were used to make it) receiving rapé can bring about a profound experience of the Forest.
Because the medicine is sacred, the Indians take rapé as a prayer calling upon the forces of Nature, the blessing of the animals of the forest, and power of medicinal plants to heal us and give us strength. Nowadays, medicinal rapé is also making its way all over the world, through increasing cross-cultural friendships between the Indians and non-indigenous friends, as well as through ayahuasca ceremonies held by traveling shamans.
Rapé is increasingly being consumed in a more social context, in the way that sharing sacred tobacco shifted to social cigarette smoking.
