San Pedro - A Journey

April 18, 2018

Its been almost a month since I did my first plant medicine journey. 

Since taking the plant medicine ALOT has changed in my life. 



Yes the big things have changed, like my direction in my business, but also the little things are shifting as well.


Here are some of the smaller shifts I have noticed since the journey;


1. A MUCH bigger and more intense desire to be in nature and rest in it. I cannot wait to have a property I can go to whenever to retreat into the healing nature.

2. One of my personality traits is that I can be a smart ass, or in kinder words, I can be quite cheeky. In an affectionate way, I have always done this. However since the journey I have noticed this trait has significantly increased. Like a lot. Alot. Alot. Whereas before I had to be in a specific mood to be cheeky, now its daily and constantly,  these witty, cheeky comments pop into my head that make me giggle regardless of what the situation. I'm still trying to work out if I like this change or not. 


3. Increased libido. 


4. Weird avoidance of mirrors now? I became aware of it as soon as I got home after the San Pedro and noticed I didn't like the mirror in my room. Every-time I looked at it, it made me feel off, so I turned it around and its been that way since. 


I'm sure there are many other small and large changes I'm yet to integrate and now having had this time to analyse, integrate and absorb my learnings from the experience, I would love to share with you my experience with San Pedro.


Hearing the call of San Pedro



I had long heard about the benefits of plant medicine in particular that of Ayahuasca and spending most of my time around spiritual teachers and healers it was something that was always available to me, yet I didn't have that calling. 


Whenever I do a course, hire a coach, see a healer, book an experience I only do it if I get that feeling. 

I describe it as an energetic resonance of yeeeeess!  I've had clients come to me and say someone recommended you and as soon I heard your name I felt like I had to come see you.

Thats the calling I'm talking about.

That energetic resonance of yes!!! It FEELS right.


Now I knew going into this year, 2018 would be my plant medicine year.

I had actively avoided doing any sort of drugs for most of my life.  The reason for that is my first Reiki teacher when I was 18 told me that when you do a drug for spiritual reasons, you're handing over your power and control over to the drug completely regardless of what you're ready for and discouraged us from doing them.


Whether thats true or not, is irrelevant. It served a purpose for me.

That was enough to scare me into avoiding doing any drugs and as my spiritual and psychic abilities grew and strengthened, I met many people who had been awakened by drugs or whos spiritual abilities came from plant medicines.

I was a clairvoyant and powerful energy healer and thought to myself, wow imagine how my life would change if I actually did those too.


I started to learn more about how plant medicines work and why people take them. For healing, for life purpose, for clearing, for all sorts of incredible things and I was very drawn.


I set the intention; 2018 is going to be my plant medicine year. and so it has been.

2018 started and the universe decided to hand me a shaman. (Note; he actively denies this term) but he is on his plant medicine journey to facilitate and hold ceremonies and his experiences with them have led me into many experiences I wouldn't have had without him.


His stories about how healing and powerful the plant medicines were inspired me along with his recommendations of documentaries on it. I was
