Are Psychedelics A Quick Fix?


The short answer to this question is no.

Yes — they can temporarily assist us with easing a situation — and then, weeks or months later, we may find ourselves back at square one.  

Can anyone relate to this?  When we keep looking for the next best thing to fix ourselves, the path can get quite daunting and become a never-ending pit of searching. When does it ever end? I am speaking from experience here. I was in a constant state of feeling that there was something wrong with me, hoping that the next journey would heal me and I would finally be good enough. But…..good enough for who? Good enough for what? The part of me that’s never satisfied? The part of me that is insecure and needy?  

My point to all this is, unless we get to the root cause or feeling that lives underneath the pattern or program driving us, we will always be running on that hamster wheel.

There are many components to the path of self-discovery, as we are all so different and unique in our own way — and the same.

Here are some components at play with getting to the root cause of why we are the way we are. First of all plant, fungi, animal medicines, Iboga, Kambo, Jaguar, Bufo, MDMA, LSD, Ayahuasca, and psilocybin mushrooms are all tools to assist you on your journey. We get to invite them into our field to work and play with, to learn and grow from, so that we can discover parts of ourselves that have been hidden away due to many reasons.  


Secondly, we also need to take a look at our environment, which includes our home, relationship with friends, family, pets, neighbours, work, etc. Is our home clean and organized? What is our vehicle like? Do we keep it clean and well maintained? Do we have any relationships that have tension? Do we surround ourselves with loving and supportive people who really get us, see us and hear us? Do we respect our belongings and the environment?  How do we respond or react to stress? How do we respond to strangers? When we take a look at what’s happening in the world outside of ourselves and how we react to it, it tells us a lot about what’s happening inside of us. It takes profound commitment to really look at our lives, take 100% responsibility for everything, and be honest with ourselves.  

Thirdly, how do we treat ourselves?  How do we take care of our body, mind, soul and spirit? Do we get enough sleep? Do we eat healthy, take vitamins and supplements, practice intermittent fasting, or undergo cleanses? Do we eat nutritionally-sound to keep our gut bacteria healthy? They say we are only as healthy as our bacteria, and parasites, viruses, worms, and bacteria have a lower vibration signature. This has a huge influence our energy levels, thoughts, cravings, moods and ways of being in the world. Yes, everyone has them, and are they being kept at bay? Do we exercise and drink alkaline or spring water? Do we care about our thoughts and feelings, or do we stuff them down with drugs, alcohol, sex, television, the phone, or social media? Do we know how to listen to our body and feel its signs when it’s telling us to slow down and rest? Do we meditate? Get out into nature? Breath? Practice gratitude? Who do we look up to? Who do we surround ourselves with? 


There are so many dynamics already at play, and then we add in our thoughts and beliefs. We are the creators of our reality. We get to navigate beliefs and patterns that have been handed down for generations. We are all one big walking pattern and belief.  

When we start questioning the things we do, why we do them, and why we think the way we think, life really starts to open up. We get to create new ways of being in the world. When we stop believing the negative thoughts that create suffering, more possibilities open up. A very powerful thing I have learned is that if the thought you are thinking doesn’t feel good, and it is creating more suffering, it is not true. Yes, we all have toxic thoughts — and we get to say no to them and switch our focus to something loving and positive.  

So when we dive into these potent medicines, perhaps with feelings of desperation, we may not get the result we are hoping for because there are so many other things at play that we need to address. Psychedelics can show us many things, but it’s the preparation before and after that makes the biggest differences in our lives.

Before you decide to take some deep dives into the miraculous work of psychedelics, start looking at your life and take the small action steps of self love, like saying no, or cleaning your room and removing the clutter. It’s all energy. I don’t know about you, but for me, clutter is a huge distraction and it’s uncomfortable. I love to be organised and know where everything is. Energetically, it feels better, smoother, and in the flow. 

Where do you not feel in the flow of life? Does it feel like an uphill battle? Those are the places to start looking, and it’s there where you will find yourself and your peace.  Remember, there is nothing wrong with you, you are absolutely perfect the way you are.  Everything in your life is happening for you to grow and learn to be the best version of yourself. It takes a lot of courage to look at the stuff we are hiding from.  Psychedelics shine a light on these things for us to see and learn from.
