“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will guide your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung
Have you ever unmasked a hidden truth about yourself or the world?
When you realize that your perception of the world has been influenced by outside authority figures or societal constructs, it will change you forever. For Chris and I, psychedelic mushrooms were a tool that we used early on in our spiritual journey that opened our eyes to the lies we had been told (and the lies that we had been telling ourselves.)
In this episode of The Elevated Life®, we’re sharing how our experience with mushrooms inspired us to make radical changes in our life, so that we could shine our light and live more authentically.
Tune in to hear:
✨ How we felt about drugs before our experience with mushrooms
✨ The 3 things Chris knew he needed to change after that night
✨ How mushrooms showed us the transformative power of love
✨ The importance of valuing your own inner voice rather than outside authorities
