Talking about natural plant medicines, psychedelics and hallucinogens quite often people ask me what am I for and what I am against. Do I include LSD or Acid into the conversation? Am I for or against synthetics or man made psychedelics and so on. So I figured that I would try and touch on it a little in this episode with Koi 3rdEyeOpener. But the simple answer is NO. I don’t promote, participate or condone the use of man made drugs, even LSD. I am open to the discussion of the shamanic traditional medicines that were used for ceremonial reasons, rites of passage, spiritual journies, healings etc. Some of these would include Psilocybin Mushrooms, Peyote, Salvia and the likes. In this episode we go into a little detail about the shamanic tobacco called Rap’e. At around the 10 minute mark Koi and myself partook in the medicine and explained some of the effects and sensations associated with the snuff. When it comes to the fear of partaking in these types of sacral plants and herbs I believe that there should be a healthy fear. Not a fear of demonic possession or getting lost in the spirit realms but a healthy reverence for the plants and the teacher spirits behind them. These are natural medicines that connect us back into nature and are very gentle with us showing us the true nature of reality and who we truly are. There is no fear in wondering if these plants are in the will of God or going to harm us because in fact the are God given and are helping people to overcome fear, trauma, addictions and many more character flaws that we live with on a daily basis. Terrence Mckenna believed these plants to be some type of walkie talkie or telephones left behind for the angelic teachers for us to have an open line of communication.
