Psychedelics as Catalysts of Spiritual Development

Throughout human history, psychedelics have been strongly interconnected with spirituality. It was common for ancient cultures to use psychedelic sessions under the guidance of experienced guides who kept an eye on users and assisted if challenges arose. For any psychedelic-assisted therapy, it is important to work from a spiritual framework, instead of a secular framework. Psychedelics are still sacred healing tools for spiritual evolution, no matter how they look or where they come from.  A human’s natural birthright is to be physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy and psychedelics might accelerate this process. Unconsciousness contains the greatest potential. Because our unconscious isn’t considered a part of our real existence, it’s dismissed as useless, unreliable, and confusing. But that unconscious is hiding the miracle of healing. Getting back to the basics of being human. By going back to nature and applying healing practices that have been used by our ancestors for thousands of years, we can reconnect with The Real Me.  Psychedelics in the right hands might brilliantly help when it comes to the healing benefits. They’re a catalyst of mental processes and dysfunctions. It is possible for psychedelics with the right spiritual guidance and in the right setting to act like a reset button that can change people’s life directions and lead to positive changes in mood, well-being, and personality. In short, psychedelics open the doors of perception by inhibiting parts of the brain. Our story changes because the perception changes. Through altered states, inner conflicts and war are no longer carried out.  A mind that is stretched by a new experience is somehow too lazy to go back to its old dimensions. Whether we continue to fight and struggle against ourselves or rise for peace and live authentically is entirely up to us. We live in a society that successfully suppresses The Real Me. We’re living in a genocide of authenticity.  Reconnection is always a good idea.  There is often confusion and puzzlement when clients return from a trip. It’s like returning from freedom in the wilderness to a cage in the zoo. Many people find it difficult to relate the emotions, sensations, and visions of the psychedelic journey to their everyday lives.  Unfortunately, the majority of people after the psychedelic experience are trapped again by cultural environments or social pressure and are going back to the comfort of their minds, running the same habitual programs, returning to addictions, traumas, depression, anxiety, and familiar suffering patterns. Yes, we still are the captains of our souls. However, psychedelic integration therapy offers us a wonderful opportunity to rewrite our life story and unite with the main character and his shadows with more love and light. It may be possible to enjoy our lives again if we stop playing the victim card by facing the root causes of our painful dramas. The value of the psychedelic experience can be greatly enhanced with the help of a therapist or psychedelic coach knowledgeable about shamanism or energy work. Psychedelics have a profound alteration in consciousness with both pleasant and challenging components. But it is also a pathway to transcendence, surrender, and let go. Sometimes, it is helpful simply to let the memory of the psychedelic experience exist within you without trying to understand it on a cognitive level. Intuition should take priority over intellect. The power of the mind is not the same as the power of love.  The brain can and does link memories and emotions using chemical signals that tell other parts of the brain and the body how to respond when that memory is triggered. When our mind crashes, freezes, or gets stuck, a hard reset by our heart intelligence might be necessary. The mind’s intelligence is knowledge. The heart’s intelligence is understanding. Only if we understand why something bothers us can we detach from it, let go, and be free again. By understanding, we can reprogram the brain to neutralize negative emotions and feelings. The process of change requires forgetting what we know about our illusionary world to explore new ways of being. When we go beyond the mind and stay a little brainless during psychedelic therapy, we can reconnect with the beauty of life like love, forgiveness, gratitude, kindness, and compassion. All that beauty comes naturally only from our heart’s intelligence. A fish cannot drown in water. A bird does not fall in the air.  And the human heart cannot die. The heart is made of love and must ever strive to return to love. One of the most common characteristics of psychedelic experiences is the experience of self-transcendence and oneness with the universe. Psychedelics disrupt the brain processes of thinking particularly thinking repetitive ruminative or brainy thoughts. We begin to feel real instead of thinking about it. Reconnecting slowly but surely with authenticity.  Psychedelic experiences can change our perception of ourselves and the world around us.  Miraculous healing occurs for some – although psychedelics don’t do the healing work for us. Through them, we are shown the work that needs to be done and are connected to the truth of who we are before the world tells us who we should be.  To fully integrate a psychedelic experience, you may want to explore healing modalities that can take you out of your head and into your heart.
