On this week’s episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast we’re having a conversation about releasing fear with psychedelics. We often half-joke about how psychedelics literally help us escape from The Matrix, but the truth is that we live in a society where fear, anxiety, worry, and stress are manufactured to keep us divided and disempowered. Our modern society has us constantly plugged into news, entertainment, and social media that hijacks our vibration with a constant feed of “Be Afraid. Don’t Trust People Different Than You. There’s Something Wrong with You. Buy This to Feel Better.”
Whether we are conscious of it or not, consuming news and media that makes us feel bad about ourselves and the world creates illness in our bodies and minds, and distracts us from all the possibility, opportunity, and magic we could have in our lives instead.
Releasing Fear Through Increased Awareness
When we start checking in with sources outside ourselves to decide how we feel, that’s when things start to get dicey. All these types of media are designed to keep us coming back for another hit of dopamine, and to knock us off our center, and unless we find a way to wake up, most of the time we are not even aware that this is happening.
We buy the story we are sold, that there’s not enough, that we are not good enough, and that someone else is responsible. Mindless consumption of media leads to spending a lot of our energy feeling victimized inside of echo chambers that confirm our beliefs of how the world is out to get us, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
The good news is that we can decide to escape this cycle, and psychedelics can help us release fear, make different choices around what media we consume, what agreements we make with ourselves, and how we stay connected with the outside world. We absolutely have the power to decide what we allow into our temple, our minds, and our hearts. Increasing our awareness of our ability to choose something else is the best place to start.
