  1. Any tips for cleansing a room or flat? Also how to remove anything you think is feeding on energy from the root chakra?
  2. I'm really sorry to hear... you can get through this!!
  3. This is one thing I'm still figuring out. I'd say it's not giving into what's going through your head. I can really relate to this. Even if there are a million other things you want to think through about it won't help the situation. OCD is actually a really serious disorder that I think is made light of due to pop culture. Seeing a therapist helps a lot clear up whatever thoughts you are ruminating on.
  4. I like how his best friend alien has the most alien name ever
  5. I think we can say psychedelics and therapy each have their own role and neither needs to be held up as the solution for an issue that may have multiple ways of solving. I've tried psychedelics and I've tried therapy and for me I think therapy is the better choice overall along with meditation and breathe work. The bad trips from psychedelics I experienced were brutal and then coming home with a lot of the same ways of thinking and a lack of self love made it really hard to do anything with what I experienced. In some ways it maybe was some tough love and got me back in therapy which is good but it was so brutal I wonder if there was something else I could of tried which was more gentle and able to teach me in a far less traumatic and psychotic way. I think I'll have a better understanding in the long run. I will say this... psychedelics can be very dangerous and life shattering whereas therapy will be much gentler and easier to integrate.
  6. I would be very careful with ayahuasca. I regret drinking ayahuasca and should of started with something much more loving and calming. I fooled myself into thinking it was something I could handle and make me feel better but I have been pulling myself back together for six weeks after doing 4 ceremonies. I can't really beat myself up for that though because from the research I had done at the time it felt like it was the right choice. It has triggered a massive amount of psychotic problems, ocd, mood swings and paranoia in me recently where I started to believe delusional stories about myself and all sort of crazy stuff even a month after taking it like I was back in the terror trip which happened during the final ceremony. I've also found who you do it with can have a major impact and the people there aren't necessarily equipped to help you handle what comes up. I felt really abandoned and misunderstood by some of the people at the retreat and while I think they are good people and their intentions are to help I don't think a lot of these retreats are equipped to deal with everything that comes up. Talking about it in therapy has helped clear this up and integrate what has happened and released a lot of stuff and bring back clarity to my thinking and who I feel I am. If you have any history with mental illness (especially to do with manic/obsessive overthinking) of any sort I'd be careful taking ayahuasca. I'd say it's for mentally strong people with a high degree of self love for themselves and others and with experience tripping on psychedelics. I was not this going into the ceremonies.
  7. What to do if going through a dark night or spiritual emergency?
  8. what if the pursuit worsens a mental illness? Is it okay to back off and take it slower?
  9. It can drive you to insanity. That's what I've felt like at times after taking ayahuasca and it's made me face some absolute horrible feelings and thoughts but I've also seen the parting of the clouds so I'm 50/50. I'd say not worry about the frivolous stuff in your opening post and more about your own well being while pursuing, choosing proper techniques, taking it slow, etc. You don't have to rush anything... just pursue gently and prioritize self love and acceptance.
  10. I've been experiencing delusions and feel sometimes like I'm losing my mind and my appetite for food has gone away, lots of fear and it's really hard to love myself right now. This is after doing psychadelics at the end of June and I've been going through this since. Is this what awakening is? This wasn't something I was experiencing before, I felt stable and grounded before. I can hear a slight silence in my head and my body sensations are just more intense and I don't understand any of it. I think I'm going through a dark night of the soul. Will this eventually calm down and have my mind normal again? I'm going to try to do a self love visualization to get me feeling hope again.
  11. My mind is suffering and I'm experiencing false memory ocd, psychosis and really intense pacing/anxiety. Surely taking medication for the absolute crazy stuff will allow for me to actually process everything and make sense of it all because it is making me feel like I'm going insane.
  12. I understand this but what is he talking about (sadghuru) when he says healing?
  13. Met one person at a holotropic breathe work workshop who found out about it the same way I did, through Leo
