Wholeness is seeking itself , blinded by it very own assumptions and misconceptions when life can not receive the totality of itself. I studied many psychological framework to assist in the process of un-coling deep grief and sadness from early violation. They provided understanding…but no integration of the sensory intelligence.
Often in enthogenic communities they speak of the need for set and setting to be of the utmost importance. What is not often recognized and emphasized is that to have the full benefit of the enthogenic medicine the necessary prep is knowing how to rest as you are. If you are unable to breath and presence into the medicine you will resist the opening of your sensory perceptions.
BREATH & PRESENCE
To become attuned and responsive to create from the wholeness remembered in your heart you must breath and presence into the being you are. Again, no-one can do this for you, as you have the perfect view into recognizing your heart centered beingness.
When you are uncomfortable resting into your being, the thinking and feeling mechanism is a thunderstorm that rolls through your awareness that obscures the seeing of your wholeness.
As these thunderstorms pass, a clearing of natural rest within will be seen. The wholeness in your heart will emerge by itself as you drop and release your judgments, labels, qualifications, assumptions, ideas, and beliefs of your self and others. This is simply and truly being pragmatic, as it an instant alignment with the whole of the life, with a ‘practical’ engagement and view, you come to trust, but can not see.
Awareness, stuck in the head is always trying to dissect reality through mental and emotional maps, ideas, concepts and beliefs of what is (about self and others), AND are cultivating an avoidance to simply presencing and being here. When we our stuck in a fixated idea of ourselves and others we are nurturing shit as we make assumptions.
It is also these core wounds that makes it difficult to presence, receive, and trust the depth and complexity within our own totality. The core wounds, unseen, obscure reality behind a veil of compulsory reactive and dull programs, clipping your wings again and again, preventing you from trusting your deepest being and soaring, here, in life as is.
The experience of sensing emptiness and longing is often expressed when the heart has been numbed out and shut down from reacting to the core wound as the contraction in the body is often unpleasant. We often choose to bypass, avoid and and resist coming in direct contact with this pain. This pain is a golden nugget screaming back at you from the universe within. This is really an opportune time to attune and become responsive to all of that you are.
ENTHEOGENS ARE VEHICLES FOR PSYCHOSOMATIC INTEGRATION
Entheogens are of unique interest to humanity for a number of extraordinary reasons – probably the best-known being the simple fact that they are the most powerful of the known natural and lab produced psychedelics to open up the door of perceptions to allow for sensory integration.
When the sensory sensations are not integrated the psychosomatic vehicle start to disassociate and begin to fracture from a clear seeing of itself, as being ONE BEING.’
This core disassociation breeds the sense of dissatisfaction, that creates, the urge and the impulse within that direct attention outward to become something to be enough.
From my observation we are collectively suffering from the decease of disconnection: An emotional schismatic disconnection where we are no longer able to feel deeply for ourselves in the other! When natural sensory processing and connection is restored it is perceived as strange or magical.
When ‘Emotional Schismatic Disconnection’ occur individual and collective numbness and fixation of being separate ensues, as the Holy Grail ‘The Sacred Heart’, and its connected circuitry of individual and collective meridians progressively shut down.
The majority of the compounds classified as ‘entheogens’ belong to the tryptamine family or are closely related to it, and include DMT (di-methyl- tryptamine), 5-MeO-DMT, DIPT, psilocybin, and LSD.
While an entheogen can be entirely created (such as LSD or 2CB) or synthesized (DMT and 5-MeO-DMT) in a laboratory, and are sometimes packaged as ‘research chemicals’ (AMT, DIPT, etc), many entheogens also occur naturally and have been utilized by human beings for centuries in numerous inventive ways.
All compounds are capable of producing intense intuitions about the sacred unity of all life, and even the trans-personal experience itself, where one actually feels the connectivity of all things and experiences a state most commonly described as Oneness.
Answer to C:
Every physicality is unique in sensory shut down from perceived lack of safety, pain, and violence. I rarely see that entheogens have lasting effects as the opportunity for sensory integration is rarely ever realized. I have observed that there is a lack in fundamental understanding of what the entheogens do and what they can not do, as to what is best prep, set, and setting, a process of understanding proper self assessment prior to engaging with the medicine.
Dissonance arise from core impressions of perceived inadequacy, insufficiency , un-loveability, when being ignored and unseen in early development, as when an impressionable and deeply sensory awareness were not sufficiently held and satiated in unconditional love, belonging and acceptance. A clear lack of ‘essential satiated nurture’ cripples our ability to naturally rest and receive all sensory input as is.
Answer to D: As I have expressed many times in my articles, any and all dissonance and anxiety are golden nuggets to attune to and resolve our core ‘wound’ dissociation, revealed in blame, labels, assumptions and judgments of self and others.
My advisement is to find a circle of trust that can hold the necessary space to assist you in making optimal choices for yourself.
