Highly complex part of an animal that coordinates actions and sensory information by transmitting signals between different parts of the body
In today's episode, I'm speaking with coach and educator Aya Allison, who specializes in psilocybin microdosing. We'll be talking in depth about microdosing—what it is, the science behind it, the latest research in this emerging area of psychedelic medicines, and practical guidance for those considering exploring it as an option. I'm so excited to be digging into this conversation with Aya, who is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in guiding clients through psilocybin protocols safely and effectively. As a mindset coach and microdosing specialist, she is perfectly positioned to provide the public with much-needed education and support around integrating plant medicines into mental healthcare regimens. Given the overwhelming crisis of anxiety, depression, and other psychiatric conditions we currently face—not to mention a general disconnection from our true selves and nature at large—I believe we need every tool at our disposal. Psilocybin and other entheogens clearly have tremendous potential for healing individuals and our society as a whole if used consciously. I'm thrilled we get to have this discussion today. The Growing Interest in Psilocybin Microdosing First I ask Aya to explain more about the growing interest and use of microdosing she's seen lately. She traces when folks started asking her about tiny doses of mushrooms back around 2014-2015, as underground chatter increased among plant medicine circles. Lately more and more people struggling with mood problems have been learning about microdosing magic mushrooms to find relief because meds and therapy haven't helped them. Instead of just getting diagnosed and taking meds with bad side effects, they want to try a natural route of using tiny doses of mushrooms to transform their inner world for the better. Many come to Aya first to learn about this approach and see if it's a fit before moving forward. They have worries about safety, laws, amount to take, and what results could realistically be. Most of all, Aya stresses the importance of fighting ignorance by equipping these psychologically vulnerable yet curious folks with the best knowledge available, empathic support, and community belonging. Random experimenting without proper plans or watching could risk bad outcomes and waste this healing opportunity. The Mental Health Emergency Looking more at why people are considering this, we talk about the total failure of Big Pharma medicine to fix the worsening mental health epidemic with mood disorders, suicide risk, disability, and general disconnect from one's self. This is a crisis everywhere. In America alone, 1 in 5 adults now live with a diagnosable condition; youth depression/anxiety has climbed over 50% since 2020, signaling an alarming future trend if we don't respond effectively. Yet standard treatments fail most people. Psych meds temporarily reduce symptoms at best before 80% relapse within a year, finding their illness even harder to treat after stopping/re-starting them multiple times. Talk therapy changes thinking patterns but doesn't fundamentally transform someone's core being. Clearly a giant gap exists between where we stand today and people living fully whole, happy, peaceful lives no longer dependent on substances or counseling to feel sane, self-love, meaning, and fulfillment. This is exactly the promise of plant medicine like magic mushrooms used wisely under care - to reconnect us with our natural power to heal and feel alive inside. Aya says it helps dissolve the make-believe walls that make us feel separate and sick - so we can remember we are naturally well and whole already. Aya's Personal Journey with Psychedelics When asked what called her to explore this view 7 years ago, she shares bravely about her past battles with heavy depression - planted by childhood trauma and running in her family - which regular medicine failed to fix. Feeling skeptical yet desperate, as a last hope she courageously turned to Ayahuasca, a plant medicine from South America. She describes the shocking rebirth process it caused, making her confront and integrate decades of stored pain and false identities to uncover an indestructible inner light within all people. In an instant, her years-long darkness ended; she felt restored to hope, purpose, freedom and unconditional self-love she'd never known before. She emphasizes preparation was key - had she not focused seriously on self-care, mindfulness, and processing her emotions enough ahead of time, the journey could've overwhelmed rather than freed her. With proper readiness, miraculous healing happens quite naturally. She testifies these plant medicines hold power if someone is called to them. But wise guidance remains crucial for safety. Her quest for truth and multifaceted healing then expanded more formally into shamanism, nature-based spirituality. As she coaches others through change with plant substances now, she increasingly sees intricate links between mental illness, immunity, digestion, nerves, sustainability, psychology and spiritual awakening. Micro vs. Macro Doses of Psilocybin To explain key words she mentioned about dosage levels and experiences, I distinguish between micro and macro doses of mushroom containing psilocybin; share that ceremonial use often means higher, consciousness-altering macro doses while microdosing means taking sub-perceptual amounts for more subtle mental/emotional benefits over time. She agrees a microdose doesn't cause a psychedelic effect. Aya clarifies an actual psychedelic experience kicks in around 2-3 grams of psilocybin. Microdosing is in the range of 50 mg of psilocybin and still results in significant healing of the nervous system. Everyone's sensitivity varies widely though based on brain chemistry, setting, mushroom strength, etc, so effects stay quite individualized and deeply personal. One might not notice changes occurring within initially. But the huge combined feedback on how microdosing psilocybin mushrooms improves thinking, emotional regulation, social skills, creativity and brain communication confirms something special happens for most at proper amounts. It basically fine tunes pathways instead of hijacking them like prescription antidepressants; gently strengthens connections over weeks like bodybuilding rather than suddenly overloading capacity. Just as higher mushroom doses cause temporary altered states of consciousness by impacting brain chemicals, tiny doses still positively influence critical networks, literally rewiring thought patterns, emotional triggers and habitual behaviors slowly over time for the better. And unlike pharmaceuticals, mushroom ingredients develop no physiological addiction or withdrawal. Legality Remains Complex We discuss current policies and regulations concerning growing, accessing and responsible usage of psychedelic containing plants like mushrooms which remain federally prohibited, similarly to how cannabis once was. It is important to understand one's regional legal landscape and penalties. But encouragingly, certain locations decriminalized or introduced bills permitting medical access and research. Overall authorities make psychedelic related cases lowest enforcement priority compared to drugs causing harm. Still banned in the U.S. however, transporting mushrooms across state lines or dosing in public remains completely illegal until policy changes as science compellingly proves therapeutic efficacy. Which means underground access may quietly thrive in some areas as symbolized by native use rituals for communing sacramentally with nature since ancient times. But political winds now shift as pioneering cities pass laws stopping unjust jailing for personal growing/use. Oregon legalized therapy centers; other states put medical access on legislative agendas. We stand at the genesis of a historic paradigm shift around psychedelic therapies. Standard Microdosing Protocols When asked about dosing strategies, Aya shares sage advice she gives people for getting the most from microdosing - like journaling, intention setting, community support or coaching check-ins. Protocol details get debated though across practitioners. James Fadiman who did original microdosing research suggests taking .1g mushroom powder every 3rd day for a month before some days completely off. Compare to Dr. Stametes who likes “stacking” microdoses with bonus lion's mane mushroom chunks for enhanced benefits. Aya personally recommends starting with half doses every other day - or full days off if very sensitive - while journaling changes in bodily sensations, moods, thinking, behaviors or dreams. Continue minimum 10-12 weeks before reevaluating extending the cycle. Natural symptoms may signal slightly higher doses needed. Customizing one's frequency and amount means attentively noticing subtle feedback in concert with professional consultation. Each person sensitively self-calibrates unique embodiment needs meaningfully this way once properly informed. Are Psychedelic Changes Sustainable Long Term? We also discuss doubts whether microdosing induced insights, newfound neural links or behavior shifts last once stopping or dependency develops needing continual mushroom activation. Valid worry; especially when medications often accompany withdrawal symptoms after temporarily subduing symptoms without resolving root causes. But unlike addictive, toxic medications, Aya assures zero evidence suggests any dependency tendency from mushroom-based psilocybin. In fact the opposite - they powerfully curb addictive patterns! The mushrooms basically reset the nervous system, enabling lasting positive changes, not unlike installing new software. The authentic self realized or old traumas released remain available within afterwards too, just maybe needing occasional “tune-ups”. Ultimately they strengthen personal freedom, not replace it. First microdosing trains the brain's pathways until we pedal freely ourselves feeling more able to navigate life and it's challenges. Training Practitioners in Psychedelic Medicine When asking about her educational initiative for healthcare professionals, Aya describes founding Heroic Wellness exactly for this purpose: to develop legal training systems delivering mushroom assisted psychotherapy properly once policy allows clinical practice. This work gets desperately needed today; underground options fail ethics standards as demand balloons for healing support with plant journeys. Without proper set, setting and integration care afterwards however, bad outcomes manifest for the emotionally and energetically sensitive. The outdated disease label and medication fix model totally misses the multidimensional nature of consciousness. More holistic approaches using plant medicine have the potential to help more people. Healing unfolds through RELATIONSHIP nurtured by skillfully attuning to complexity of inner landscapes opened during entheogenic experience. Thus proper presence, gentle guidance and compassion creates optimal conditions for awakening - as the best doctors understand too. Entheogens Explained After introducing “entheogen,” an unfamiliar word, I ask Aya to define its meaning and why it fits better than “psychedelic” or “hallucinogen” for plant medicines like magic mushrooms or Ayahuasca. She says it comes from “generating the divine within” - implying substances eliciting short yet deeply mystical states of oneness, euphoria, infinity, clarity into Truth behind normal senses. Whereas “psychedelic” suggests escapism without personal integration. Ancient wisdom cultures prized plant entheogens as sacred portal opening mediums for ritual, divination, adolescent rites of passage, and healing. Careful protocols and reverence prevailed universally, which Aya advocates restoring today. Hence “entheogen” differentiates compounds occasioning awakening and embodiment rather than just distractive trips as “psychedelic” misleadingly implies for some. It resumes honoring time-tested shamanic respect she argues legalization absolutely necessitates incorporating rather than dismissing. Mixing Psilocybin Microdosing with Other Medications Lastly I ask about potential complications or interference augmenting microdoses with existing pharmaceutical prescriptions, over the counter supplements or common health conditions in case safety concerns arise for those interested but using other things concurrently. Aya reassures hardly any recorded interactions manifest since dosing stays so sub-perceptual, unlike recreational ranges. It won't impair bodily/metabolic functioning noticeably at tiny amounts either. And given the brain chemical specific effects, psilocybin seem unlikely to worsen side effects, diminish intended benefits of treated symptoms or cause dangerous synergistic reactions with medications. In fact integration may benefit tapering off unneeded medications under medical guidance. They awaken our inner doctor healing capacities restoring natural balance rather than overriding them as dependencies can. Of course conservative dosing and transparency with one's doctors stays vital. Closing Thoughts In closing, I sincerely thank Aya for openly illuminating the immense potential of mushroom family plant medicines like psilocybin to catalyze radical healing transformations - of both individuals and society collectively. When supported conscientiously by professionals, they provide unprecedented opportunities for healing, connection and meaning for all.

As we head into the holiday season, I want to give you some ways to prepare your nervous system for ALL the things coming your way. With all of the holiday buildup, family visits and kids being home for winter break, your nervous system is going to get activated and you're going to need to work harder to reset it. You've probably heard me talk about your stress response. As a parent, your stress response gets activated pretty often. Your brain interprets misbehavior or another everyday situation as an emergency, your brain sounds the alarm and your body gets flooded with “stress juice”. Today, I'm zooming out to talk about the bigger picture of your entire central nervous system. And I'll show you how you can use your own nervous system to calm yourself more quickly. Your Nervous System ExplainedThere are two main parts of your nervous system. The first is your sympathetic nervous system. You might also have heard this talked about as your fight/flight/freeze/faint/fawn response). The second part is your parasympathetic nervous system, which includes the vagus nerve. The two parts work together to help you respond to stressful situations and then decrease that stress response, kinda like a teeter totter. One is activated at a time, while the other is decreased. Think of your nervous system as an information highway running through your body at all times. It takes in information through your senses and tells the brain how to respond to what you are experiencing. Neurons (brain cells) carry this message all throughout your body. If your brain interprets any of this information as dangerous, it triggers your stress response and activates the sympathetic nervous system. To your brain, a threat can be something like a kid spitting in your face or getting a bad grade or spilling juice all over the table. Stress juice floods your body, giving you the oomph to respond to the danger. When your stress response is activated, there is a period of time where you aren't able to regulate your nervous system. When that threat has passed, you start to come back online and your parasympathetic nervous system comes into play. The parasympathetic nervous system is your best friend when it comes to managing your stress response. It has its own network of nerves and helps relax your body after periods of stress or danger. It typically activates on its own after a stressor, but when we have triggers coming at us all the time (like in parenting life), it gets weakened and doesn't respond as well. That's why you need tools to reset the system on your own. When we talk about calm and taking pause breaks to reset, the parasympathetic nervous system is the piece that we're resetting. Chronic StressYour stress response is healthy and necessary. But often, our brains misinterpret things (like spilled juice being a life-or-death emergency). Parenting is a lot. What ends up happening is that you have a lot of demands and stressors coming at you one after the next, and you don't always have enough time to recover from them.This causes us to be chronically stressed. We constantly have stress juice pouring through our bodies, and it makes it really difficult to stay calm.This is what's going on when you find yourself getting angry and annoyed about every single thing your kid does. You've probably been in an activated stress response for a while, so you are dysregulated. As a mom, you're dealing with stressors all day long, especially if you have more than one kid. But there are little breaks in between.Our goal is to practice getting ourselves into the...

Stress, depletion, burnout, frazzled nerves, anxiety, lack of focus, spaciness, groundlessness.What do all of these have in common? Vata. If you're familiar with Ayurveda, you'll know there are three primary "doshas," or collections of elemental characteristics that describe qualities of a person. But they aren't static. I think sometimes people get stuck in the idea that "doshas" are like a personality test. And while there are some aspects of that, from an Ayurvedic lens we actually have both our innate constitution AND the current state we're in. Which are usually NOT the same. We may be born super hot, active, and physically strong, but we may go out of balance by burning ourselves out after pushing way too hard over the years and end up feeling high levels of anxiety or spaciness. Because that endless excess stimulation we've subjected ourselves to is constantly eating away at our reserves until we no longer have them and we collapse. It's a common story, really, especially as people reach their late 30's or 40's. And it's one (of many) example of how the elements inherent in Vata dosha (air and ether) can have an imbalancing effect on someone whose innate nature is not that. In other words, most of us tend to go out of balance in Vata at some point in our lives, and often we see the results in our nervous systems. Kristen Timchak, host of the Nourished Nervous System podcast, shares all about how Ayurveda counteracts the qualities of Vata dosha in the mind. She includes several simple practices you can start incorporating into your life if/when you feel your Vata going out of balance, and she shares about some indispensable herbal allies for this, too.

Behaviors are not the result of moral or personality flaws. They aren't signs of lack of willpower or bad character either. Behaviors are caused by neurochemical changes in the brain and can change based on your environment or experiences.Positive loving environments can change these patterns in a positive way to make space for our brain to focus on things like exploration, play, learning, and cooperation. In this episode Lauren walks us through the experiences, environment, thoughts, and events that can lead to different types of behaviors and the role that the nervous system plays in our responses and reactions.

64: Regulating the Nervous System as Nurse Coaches- Ellie Monjoseph, RN, BSN, NC-BC Highlights“Are you fighting something? Are you fleeing? Are you, what's called, collapse or shutdown, and just trying to figure out where we're at with our nervous system, so we can support ourselves?It's plugging in some of the missing pieces that an unresolved stress takes away from us. It kind of masks or clouds our vision of ‘where am I?'. Because when you think of when you're connected, when you're joy-filled, when you're present, you can make decisions very easily.” ~ Ellie Monjoseph BSN, RN, NC-BCAh-Ha MomentsNursing experience gives you a front row to witnessing humanityListen to where you are being called… you can go in whatever direction you chooseIt's important to continue to do your own inner work to support yourself, to understand yourself more deeplyFear, imposter syndrome, people pleasing, and the inner critic can sound really loud when we don't address our unique, deep needsAn inner critic is typically a voice that is not yours, from your pastConnecting to your heart space, a purposeful pause, to connect with yourself. What do you need right now? What does your heart say right now? This voice is a calm, kind voice that will help you move into the next space that you need right now.It's a power move to ask for help! It's vulnerable to do, but it creates a cushion of a supportive community around usWhat is this urge to flee? The sympathetic system, fight, flee, shutting down… wanting to change jobs, move, give up, etc. Bringing awareness to self is imperative to understand and recognize how we're responding so we can take a purposeful step that is truly best for youHealing begins when we realize we're interconnectedLinks and ResourcesIntegrative Nurse Coach Certificate Program with the Integrative Nurse Coach AcademyIntegrative and Holistic Specialty ProgramsFree to Live Wellness - Ellie's websiteEllie on Instagram***** Thank you for listening.

Come on a brief journey with me as I spend some time showing you all how to map your nervous system. What better way to do that than to use the experiences we have during the holiday season. Joy, peace, stress, anxiety, hopelessness, and dissociation are all words to describe our nervous system states; respectively, ventral vagal (socially engaged), sympathetic (fight or flight) and dorsal vagal or parasympathetic (freeze). Using my Thanksgiving experience, I show how becoming aware of our vagal states provides us a wealth of information to regulate our emotions and track our autonomic states during the joys and stresses of the holiday season.

Hi there, beautiful souls! Welcome to The Embodied Leadership Podcast, today we have a solo episode where we're exploring a crucial yet often overlooked aspect of creating lasting success. Whether you're a business mogul, a creative spirit, or simply a human being striving to be your best self, this episode is for you. I'll be diving deep into the significance of your nervous system's capacity in shaping your sales, visibility, impact, and income. It's the foundation of a fulfilled life and sustainable success. In today's chat, I'll share an unpopular opinion that might just change the way you approach your goals. We'll unpack the concept of 'quantum leaping' and why nurturing your current capacity is essential for not just achieving but truly holding onto your success. So, get cozy, and let's get ready for some real talk that could transform the way you live and lead. In This Episode: 00:00 - Opening Insights on Nervous System and Success 01:25 - The Dynamics of Quantum Leaping 03:33 - Delving into Subconscious Self-Sabotage 05:11 - Valuing Subtle Shifts in Personal Growth 07:48 - The Interplay of Support Systems and Success 12:07 - Privilege and Experience in the Business Landscape 15:26 - The Spectrum of Leadership Experiences 17:31 - Grounding Entrepreneurship in Faith 21:32 - Balancing Early Business with Trust and Strategy 23:09 - Understanding Success Beyond Comparison 26:19 - Holding Happiness in the Now 28:01 - The Quest for Internal Fulfillment 30:17 - Body and Identity in Harmony 31:04 - Building Capacity and Comfort with Discomfort 32:42 - Savoring Success in the Present Moment 36:35 - Nervous System Mastery for Long-Term Success 39:19 - Gratitude and the Art of Savoring 41:17 - Holistic Transformation via the Nervous System 43:48 - Well-being and Capacity as Priorities 44:53 - Closing Thoughts and Next Steps Key Takeaways: Your nervous system's capacity significantly influences your success in sales, visibility, and income. Quantum leaps in life and business require a nervous system capable of handling new realities. Sustainable success is rooted in a holistic approach that includes addressing personal experiences and traumas. Comparing your journey to others can be misleading due to different backgrounds, support systems, and personal capacities. Strategies in business are essential, but they must be complemented by faith, trust, and a connection to something greater. The relationship with your nervous system is foundational for holding and sustaining success. The ability to sustain success is tied to how well one can handle current realities and relationships, including money and visibility. Gratitude for what one has in the present is necessary to welcome more success sustainably. Quotes: "Your current nervous system capacity for what is already in front of you is exactly what's impacting your success." - Rachael "Quantum leaping without the capacity to handle the new can lead to self-sabotage." - Rachael "It's the deep work that actually gives you the ability to create and hold the success that you desire." - Rachael “Your support system, which is connected to the different privileges you have, also influences the timing, longevity and sustainability of your success." - Rachael Thank you so much for joining me today. It's been a pleasure sharing my thoughts and insights with you. Remember, your journey is unique, and embracing every step with intention and care is what leads to true success. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Connect & Work With Rachael: For The Legacy: The Membership Instagram TikTok Youtube 1:1 Coaching Application Blog The Embodied Leadership Newsletter If you enjoyed today's episode, please let me know by leaving a 5-star review on whatever platform you're listening to this, or sharing this episode on your Instagram stories and tagging me!

Have you ever been in a stressful situation where it feels as if you are losing control of your body? Activation of the sympathetic nervous system may cause our chest to tighten, our thoughts to race, and our breathing to become shallow. What are our options in these moments? What can we rely on to bring us back to center when we experience dysregulation? Breathwork, belly breathing, or paced respiration is an intentional manipulation of how we breathe to achieve specific mental, emotional, or physical benefits. We spoke to Ana Lilia, a certified breathwork teacher, about various breathwork techniques, from breath of fire to box breathing, and the powerful advantages of breathwork, including relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being. Through this discussion, we learn how consciously incorporating our breath is a pathway for transformation.
Let's explore how nature's patterns and our need for stability are connected, starting from our early experiences in the womb and infancy. We'll talk about how stressful environments can mess with our inner balance, causing things like chronic anxiety and always seeking approval from others. Understanding how this chaos affects our long-term mental health, we'll chat about ways to take care of ourselves and get back on track. We'll focus on practical tips to help you set your own boundaries and create a healthy routine. This episode is all about helping you become your own caregiver, finding calm and stability in your life, and creating routines that support your mental and emotional well-being.

Did you know that gratitude can lower stress, promote relaxation, and help you regulate your emotions? To be honest, for a long time I had a gratitude practice where I'd quickly jot down 3 things I was grateful for every morning, but I didn't feel like it made much of a difference in my life. My gratitude practice didn't have much of an impact because I didn't understand the science of gratitude. I didn't know that I needed to embody gratitude for it to regulate my nervous system and rewire my brain. In today's episode, you'll learn how to incorporate a simple daily gratitude practice that will help regulate and re-wire your nervous system. You'll also learn 10 different benefits to your health and nervous system of having a daily gratitude practice. TAKE THE PERSONALITY PATTERN QUIZ!

What image comes to mind when you think about self-care? A massage or bubble bath? A fancy dinner? Being all zenned out in lotus pose? Though these things can be wonderful, I also think they can give self-care a bad name by portraying it as something fun, frivolous and even a little selfish. In reality, true self-care – or what I like to call “therapeutic self-care” – is absolutely essential to our well-being and our ability to show up for those around us. Therapeutic self-care is about meeting your core needs as a human – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. It's an inside job first and foremost, and it doesn't have to be time-consuming or expensive to do WONDERS for your nervous system, stress levels and overall balance in life. As we go into the holidays where schedules are extra packed and stress is high, we need to become even more mindful of our self-care. To send you into this season with empowering self-care practices, I tapped Adult Chair® Master Coach and self-care guru, Theresa Steighner, to share her advice for self-care at the holidays (and year round!) with us. Theresa shares the four pillars of true self-care, plus five fast and free things you can do daily to keep your nervous system in balance…this is self-care like you've never heard it talked about before! Listen to discover: ● Why self-care is so important ● What "therapeutic self-care" is ● The four pillars of true self-care ● 5 quick ways to regulate your nervous system ● How to prioritize yourself and your self-care I promise you, if you do what Theresa recommends in this episode, you'll feel less stress, less overwhelm, more presence and more peace this holiday season. Tidings of comfort and joy, indeed. "Our self-care is more than the bubble baths, the massages, the getting the pedicures. Self-care is really about taking care of our needs on that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level." - Theresa Steighner "A big part of self-care is being able to set those boundaries, but we really have to know who we are first." - Theresa Steighner "When somebody compliments you, it's a reflection of you back to you." - Theresa Steighner "Awareness is key. We cannot change what we are not aware of." - Theresa Steighner "You can't grab what's happening in the moment and raise your self-awareness if you're constantly in the future or the past. Make sure you're slowing down." - Michelle Chalfant "Women have a really hard time putting ourselves first." - Michelle Chalfant "Nature regulates our nervous system." - Theresa Steighner "Yoga helps us to repattern those habitual response patterns and brings awareness so that we can show up in a healthier way, in that healthy adult." - Theresa Steighner "You've got to make sure you're asking for what you need.

Leaky gut seems to be a national crisis. While diet is certainly a factor, the larger issue is stress or the lack of safety inside your physiology. Maria-Victoria Albina of The Feminist Wellness Podcast came on this podcast to share the response of the nervous system on our GI tract and the fight for safety within our biology. We talk about the polyvagal theory, co-dependence, and how to regulate your nervous system to heal your biology. Healing your gut is more than a food issue. It's a lifestyle response.
