I’ve been working with microdosing psilocybin for about five months now. I do this personal research because I teach courses that help people to release their difficult emotions and the trauma that’s tethered to them.
And if you’ve been with me for a while, you know that cannabis has been (optionally) part of my protocol and we just started including microdosing psilocybin.
It makes sense then that I’ve been microdosing in order to report back to my students and clients on what to expect.
To be clear the reason I’m including the microdosing and cannabis in my 8-week course is because of the way these plant medicines amplify our work with emotions… it’s like super-charged – yet relaxes us and especially supports people who are having a challenge breaking out of their incessant thoughts because of on-going anxiety, crippling self-doubt, depression, anger, grief, loneliness and the like.
And for some it can be a Catch 22 because it’s vital to be able to ground and clear ourselves so that we can among other things enter a meditative state to meet the emotions that are coming up so we can process and release them.
But when the mind is pounding, or ruminating or dissociating, it’s next to impossible to do this. So my students find that both cannabis and microdosing psilocybin supports this emotional release process.
And for me personally, by bringing in the microdosing, deeply embedded trauma has been percolating up to be released. It’s been remarkable in this respect.
Now, honestly I wondered what difference the microdosing would make for me – because with the Emotional Liberation method I use and teach, I’ve already done a lot of inner work and released a boatload of trauma (stemming from a difficult childhood).
And today I’m happy to report that I navigate mostly in a calm clear flow state (something I couldn’t have dreamed of before I started doing this work).
Anyway as I’ve been microdosing I’ve been experiencing only what I can describe as the release of deeply embedded lingering trauma. It’s a layer that I know has been there and it felt deeply rooted and waiting to be freed, if you will.
I don’t mean to sound woo-woo but in my work, I mesh Eastern wisdom teachings and practices with Western science (I like science because I’m trained as a clinician). So, I’m very much about the intersection of what I call soul and science.
In that framework there is our physical body, which we know holds on to trauma and in meditation science there is the invisible energetic body which holds on to trauma as well.
And this is what I believe the microdosing psilocybin has facilitated for me by helping me drop deeper into that invisible inner world and percolate up what’s left on both a physical and energetic level.
We could talk neuroscience here and speculate that it’s re-wiring neural connections and affecting brain chemicals etc. Science is coming along, and I do talk about that in other videos, but science is way behind on connecting the dots to be sure. And really in the end, because both psilocybin and cannabis have strong safety profiles, it’s about how you feel… what’s happening to you right? So this is what’s been happening to me.
I could talk about the other benefits… I’m observing a boost in my energy, my creativity is heightened and I’m in profound gratitude – more so than usual. And those are all significant but the release of the emotions (and hence the underlying trauma) is the piece that’s central to my interest because once the difficult emotions have been released you don’t have to deal with that layer anymore.
Sound like something you’d like to know more about? I invite you to join me for an event that will let you go deeper into whatever work you might be doing already … whether it is microdosing, or cannabis or yoga or meditation – whatever you’ve been exploring to feel better. Or maybe you’ve been wanting to feel better… this is your opportunity. So come and try this on with me. The link to register for this free event is below this video.
I’m Becca Williams, I want you to lead your best life and I want to show you how to that.
