    EP 019 | Embracing an Attitude of Gratitude

    EP 019 | Embracing an Attitude of Gratitude

    Are you ready to drop the complaining suckfest and get on board with embracing an attitude of gratitude? In this Thanksgiving week episode on The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're talking about what it means to truly cultivate a vibration of gratitude, how we get it wrong, and share some easy steps you can take to choose an attitude of gratitude every day.

    In this episode, John and Sinclair discuss...


    The real definition of gratitude as a vibration you hold 
    Love and gratitude and how they are related 
    Getting deeper into feeling grateful when everything is going your way, and when it's not 
    Gratitude and its relationship to plant medicine and psychedelics 
    The true source of gratitude as a state of mind that can be cultivated by anyone 
    Receiving the message of not feeling grateful or thankful: things being out of alignment 
    How plant medicine shifts your understanding of gratitude 
    When you choose to fight and struggle, when you choose to be victimized, and get stuck in a cycle of complaining, you're making a choice to look at things in a negative way 
    The duality of experiencing not having, of passing through places of going without or lack 
    Practicing going without as a way to understand thankfulness 
    Choosing gratitude as a mindset vs. looking to receive good things and THEN being grateful for it 
    Becoming aware of what you already have 
    The negative thought loop of complaining, perfectionism, and if/then thinking 
    Never being satisfied with what already is creates a loop of blocking gratitude 
    Getting sick and tired of feeling sorry for yourself as a starting point to creating gratitude 
    Finding authentic gratitude where you are right now 
    How you create blocks to gratitude by not taking care of what you already have 
    Manifesting magic by being grateful NOW, not in the future 
    Admitting that you're dissatisfied, unhappy, you don't like your life, and sitting with that 
    Gratitude comes through having a reckoning with yourself
    Finding the good things in your present situation AND THEN finding gratitude for the uncomfortable and difficult circumstances that are happening so you can learn 
    Everyone is your teacher, so you can learn to choose compassion, choose light, and choose to be kind and gentle with the people in your life
    Adjusting your attitude to see that life is happening for you not to you 
    Becoming grateful for pain and suffering and transforming your own darkness into light  
    Sculpting yourself into the truest and most authentic form
    Returning to the sacred place of knowing exactly who you are
    You don't need to change who you are, you need to remember who you are
    A simple gratitude practice you can do every day

    Does this resonate with you? If so, we'd love to invite you to learn more about Rise and Align, our 4 month psychedelic transformational coaching program where you'll learn exactly how to build a conscious healing partnership with plant medicines, follow your heart, and manifest the purpose driven life your heart is calling you toward.

    EP 018 | So You Wanna Be a Healer?

    EP 018 | So You Wanna Be a Healer?

    So you wanna be a healer? Huzzah! Today on The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're answering the most common questions about becoming a healer, psychedelic guide, psychedelic integration coach, or other spiritual service practitioner and how you can find your true path to sharing your gifts with the world. Are you feeling called toward being in spiritual service after working with psychedelics? If so, what does that path look like, and how can you start to turn yourself into a high vibration, experienced practitioner? What does it really mean to truly share healing energy with those around you, and help others have the same awakening you've experienced?

    In this episode, John and Sinclair have a conversation about...

    *How to step into your power and answer the call toward being in spiritual service with plant medicines, psychedelics, or other healing professions and practices
    *Why it's so important to heed this call in your life
    *Things to consider and investigate as you step into this new and transformed role
    *How the ego gets inflated when you're first starting out working with medicines and what to watch out for
    *How the only person you can actually heal is yourself, and disempowering people by claiming to heal them
    *Teach a man to fish vs. giving a man a fish
    *The Death Cult programming that you have to break out of in order to be aligned in spiritual service
    *Feeling ready to be of service after only a few ceremonies and not doing your own integration is a tool of the Death Cult and creates spiritual materialism
    *Self-care as a vital spiritual practice for pouring from a full cup as a spiritual practitioner
    *Psychedelic medicines as the Big Bang catalyst for growth, and the Integration Journey as the true test of healing and growth
    *Bringing spiritual alignment to ANY work you do, even if you're not a spiritual practitioner
    *You don't have to become a shaman to have a spiritual impact on the world and people around you
    *Being a spiritual healer is not a 9-5 job, it's a vibration you carry with you all the time
    *If you're truly a healer, Spirit is using you to heal others through your words, your actions, your power
    *Inspiring people by how you live and who you are
    *Working on yourself through the medicine path, and inspiring others to heal themselves
    *The way to follow this path is to sit in your own spiritual practices, develop your own personal relationship with medicines, and invest in your own healing and growth
    *Being in a high vibration is the best medicine to share your gifts with the world
    *There's no way to walk a path for someone else, each step has to be taken by the individual
    *Mr. Rogers and cultivating spiritual purpose, and the effects of caring for your divine self
    *Taking responsibility first for yourself and what's in your life
    *Empowering others to find their purpose and share their light
    *The super awesome effects of being in spiritual service, and getting to do your own integration
    *If you want to be an integration coach, you have to do your own work in your own life
    *When we remember we don't know everything, it helps to remind us that the Universe has our back
    *Staying in the shit, sitting with the heaviness, and transmuting it through spiritual alchemy
    *Busting the myth of spiritual abundance only being about making money or it being easy money
    *Healing isn't all about magic and metaphysical powers, it's about the power of holding space and accepting people as they are
    *Starting to create the vibration of gratitude and bringing your light to whatever you already have
    *Developing spiritual practices and actually doing them
    *Starting where you are and doing spiritual good RIGHT NOW
    *Putting out what you want to receive, being a mirror, and holding space for others
    *How to find your own spiritual path and building a conscious relationship with plant medicines

    EP 017 | Spiritual Burnout and The Healing Power of Rest

    EP 017 | Spiritual Burnout and The Healing Power of Rest

    Today on this episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're coming to you from the comfort or our living room sofa to talk about Spiritual Burnout and The Healing Power of Rest. What is spiritual burnout or therapeutic burnout, what does it look like, and how can you learn how to spot it? This is a crucial subject that is rarely talked about (but often experienced) on any spiritually focused path, and can be especially profound and important to recognize as part of your psychedelic integration plan.

    In this episode, John and Sinclair have a conversation about...


    How working on spiritual development can become an obsession, making life feel heavy and hard
    Defining spiritual burnout or therapeutic burnout, and what it looks like when you don't take rest
    How avoiding psychedelic integration actually leads to spiritual burnout
    How society rewards hustle culture, grinding yourself down, and overachieving and the dark side of doing this with plant medicines and psychedelics
    Why using plant medicine for "performance enhancement" can feel out of alignment
    Signs of spiritual burnout including low energy, depression, loss of excitement, loss of excitement, overwhelm, and exhaustion
    Psychedelics are designed to reconnect us to our natural curiosity about ourselves and the universe, and when it stops feeling good, that's a sign that something is out of balance
    Why you have to take breaks from medicine to see results and allow for healing
    Setting up for disappointment by looking at ourselves as unhealed, never doing enough, and seeing spiritual development as a problem to be solved
    How to recognize spiritual burnout, what causes it, and how to shift away from feeling overwhelmed
    Taking it easy, taking your time, slowing down, and allowing things to be as they are
    Consciousness expanding is only one side of the coin, integration is the other side
    Balancing doing with rest and receiving
    Asking yourself, what is the point of sitting with medicine if you are not doing anything with it?
    Avoiding spiritual burnout starts with understanding that medicine is a tool, spiritual living is a path
    It takes how long it takes, and that is a gift
    Shifting from perfectionism to progress and celebrating all the positive steps you take on your path of growth
    Fun as an integration practice
    Being gentle and compassionate with yourself when you are doing shadow work
    Short term vs. long term burnout, and how each is interrelated to lack of community, understanding, and support
    Taking breaks from medicines or anything that is sucking the joy out of your life is healthy and necessary
    Connecting back to your heart and listening to your body
    Learning how to know what season you are in and how you can work with us to integrate your psychedelic journeys over a longer period of time

    EP 015 | How to Be The Medicine (And Infiltrate The Matrix)

    EP 015 | How to Be The Medicine (And Infiltrate The Matrix)

    On this week's new episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're getting into one of our favorite topics: How to Be The Medicine (and Infiltrate The Matrix). So many of our integration coaching clients spend loads of money and time investing in a plant medicine retreat, finding deep, transformational healing with psychedelics, but have no real plan for what happens next.

    How to integrate and how to exist in the world with this new awareness after finding a real connection to yourself through your psychedelic experience can feel isolating, lonely, and overwhelming. So what comes after the ceremony ends and the pink cloud fades? How do you take the lessons you learned in your journey into your real life in a practical and sustainable way?

    This is part of what we teach in Psychedelic Integration Academy, and today we're going to shed some light on how you can Be The Medicine and Infiltrate The Matrix.

    In this episode, John and Sinclair share about...


    How we get caught up in the "Us vs. Them" spiritual tribe mentality, and why it can be dangerous
    Creating stories and onboarding limiting beliefs and creates excuses for not connecting to others
    Being the medicine in your life and what this means
    Taking personal responsibility for bringing the lessons and awareness into your daily life
    The universal human understanding of vulnerability, compassion, and personal connection
    How onboarding the new awareness and understandings from sacred plant medicines can be painful and overwhelming
    The forest fire method of changing your life vs. getting support and making a plan for transformation and integration
    Why a lot of people feel lost, isolated, or even give up after having a spiritual awakening
    How sharing your gifts makes them grow and thrive inside you
    Talking to your family and friends about your new awareness through stories and lessons, rather than the specific psychedelic experience
    The privilege, responsibility, and the opportunity of working with plant medicines
    Integration is the process of becoming whole and embodying your wholeness in your life
    Recognizing that you have to change is hard and can cause panic and fear
    How to infiltrate The System with Your Light - we break the system from the inside, and going inside ourselves, and doing our very best, no matter the circumstances
    Seeing your spiritual teachers in every person you meet
    Living and acting from your heart and being the medicine that the world needs
    Being authentically yourself calls in your people and connects you into the community you want, and it's your responsibility to stay awake and spread your light

    EP 014 | The Truth About Healing with Psychedelics

    EP 014 | The Truth About Healing with Psychedelics

    This week on The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're having a real honest talk about the truth about healing with psychedelics. After taking six weeks off to relocate our lives and work to Wimberley, Texas, just outside Austin, we're back and excited to take a deep dive into what "healing with psychedelics" actually means. How is the conventional Western healthcare system failing us? Why is healing with psychedelics is becoming a lifesaving healing modality for so many people who have been left behind and left in pain by the endless cycle of doctors, diagnoses, treatment plans, drugs, and symptom management? What does walking the spiritual path with sacred medicines as your guides really mean? 

    In this episode, Sinclair and John discuss...


    The common and spiritual definitions of healing and psychedelics
    Symptoms and how they are an effect of a source or cause further upstream
    How shifting to working with plant medicines and psychedelics shifts your meaning of healing
    The participatory requirement of working with plant medicines to look at what's being revealed and lean into it
    The accepted paradigm that there is ALWAYS a physical or physiological cause to illness
    That the source of illness and disease starts in the consciousness and spirit and manifests in our emotional, mental, and physical body from there
    Why people are seeking help outside the for-profit healthcare system for chronic pain, chronic illness, over-medication and suffering without end
    How plant medicines are sharing their ancient consciousness with us to help us live our purpose with more joy, love, and happiness
    How psychedelics can show us the true nature and causes of our illnesses and dis-ease by reconnecting us to our true selves and returning us to our natural order and balance
    When our spirits are high, anything is possible
    Diagnoses, pharmaceutical drugs, commercials selling diseases, side effects, and more...
    Treatment plans that require lifelong dependence on the provider and why this is not actually treatment
    The truth about healing with psychedelics: Bringing the mystical experience into your everyday reality through sustainable spiritual integration practices
    The many manifestations of spirituality and living a spiritual life, and how these practices support health, harmony, and well-being
    Psychedelics are just the first step, taking action to align your life with your vision is where the real work is
