The Magic of Mushroom Tinctures and Alchemy For years I've been testing different medicinal mushroom tinctures to see how they impact my health, energy, nerves, and creativity.

However, my experience with the magic of mushrooms exploded when I discovered Jason Scott and his company Feral Fungi. Jason is a Mycologist, Ethnobotanist and Spagyricist who has also studied deep Alchemy, Ayurveda, and natural medicine philosophy around the world. In this episode, we explore: Jason's journey in combining alchemy and mycology, resulting in the accidental birth of the spagyric mushroom tinctures and his company Feral Fungi. The difference between common single-extract tinctures, double-extract tinctures, and spagyric tinctures.

As soon as we receive something, we immediately start craving more. Why are we rarely content with what we already have? Having a desire for more is a great characteristic when it comes to creativity and developing the self, but it can be a terrible characteristic in relation to stacking cheddar cheese and possessions if our money and materials aren't in alignment with our purpose or hero's journey. If receiving and collecting isn't the answer to happiness, then what is? Giving and being of service. A Habit of Giving Creates Warm Fuzzy Feelings Forever When you give something to another person, whether material or in service, a physiological response happens within you. That warm fuzzy feeling you had as a free-range child running barefoot through the wild comes back and helps you make sexy-time with your happiness muscles. When giving without motive, your brain releases pleasure endorphins, including oxytocin, which is also released during sex and lowers your stress. Oxytocin makes you feel more connected to others, which is why people often pay forward random acts of kindness. Giving is a domino cycle of warm fuzzy feelings that increases the collective bond of the world. Ideas for Giving Gifts and Being of Service In this episode, I share a few stories of my transformation through gift-giving, as well as a bunch of ideas on how you can give gifts and be of service today, without expectation or motive. The Universe will always give you what you put into it, so don't think so much about what you are losing. Think about all the peace, serenity, creativity, and love you will be gaining.

View on the blog: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/40   Eliminating Distractions and Creating Focus   In this episode of Never Stop Peaking, we kick off the Sweet-Ass Habit series with a breakdown of the benefits of living more minimally, both physically and digitally. I also share some scandalous stories that will surely either make you laugh or offend you greatly.    Why is Minimalism so Important?    When you have less stuff, you have fewer distractions. When you have fewer distractions, you awaken your awareness. When you are more aware, you pay attention to areas of life that matter the most, like forming stronger relationships and engaging in higher levels of creativity.  As you form stronger relationships and expand your creativity, you continuously open up new doors that lead directly to clarity, purpose, and meaning in life.    When you live your life with clear intent, you'll discover that the pursuit of happiness you dream of is not only possible, it's absolute.    Kinky Links From the Episode The Sweet-Ass Journal to Develop Your Happiness Muscle in 100 Days Sweet-Ass Affirmations: Motivation for Your Creative Maniac Mind Shownotes & Other Podcast Episodes Enter the Giveaway for a Free Journal

Group (Women Only): Click Here   Are you paying attention?   How do you allow pain and energy to move through you when a deep relationship in your life comes to an end? What does it feel like to live a life in dedication to your excitement, self-love, and ultimate creative journey? Are you paying attention to the universal signs that are trying to guide you to your highest self?    A few years ago I was introduced to Lecia Fox via a mutual friend. Lecia is a Light Worker, Activator, and HigherSelf Life Coach. In simple terms, she’s packed full of wisdom. We planned on recording a podcast episode, but the Universe intervened a few times and it never worked out. Fast forward to today and it all makes sense.   Lecia and I both look for signs from the Universe to help guide us in our business, spiritual, and awareness journeys. Over the past few months, we started having so many synchronicities that it became crystal clear that it was time to connect. She is one of my favorite’s to tune into because her authenticity glows, and the way that she teaches is of the highest form of mastery.    In this episode, Lecia and I freely explore the collision of our journeys, the magic universal wand always at play to guide you, Pythagorean numerology, the process of transitioning through deep relationships, plant medicine healing journeys, higher self habits, the intimacy of intuition, self-forgiveness, unconditional love and more.   Shownotes: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/35

Her Other Book Mentioned: The Book of Beasties Sarah's Website: FollowYourFeelGood.com  Help me out and leave an iTunes review!   How Good Are You Willing to Let it Get? No matter what type of fear, procrastination, or resistance gremlins enter your life, there is always one thing you can control that will stop their invasion: your energy.    Will you allow these negative forces to drain and taint your energy, or will you take control of your energy and use it to learn, reflect, and move closer to your visions?   Over many years, I have intermittently struggled with allowing myself to feel my happiest because of some sort of external factor that was bothering me. Sometimes this shows up in the form of depression, full-body inflammation, or a lack of self-worth and often leads to a downward spiral. Because of the negative experiences, I sometimes created imaginary limitations for myself in an attempt to establish protection from more bad experiences moving forward. I was removing parts of my life that brought me happiness and love because I was scared that something might go wrong and make me unhappy. I was settling for a middle ground of simply existing rather than experiencing. Does this seem familiar?    You see, the security blanket is actually the problem in itself. We hold ourselves back from our dreams because we are afraid we will fall on our face. In other words, we aren’t allowing ourselves to reach our heightened states of mind, body, and spirit. We aren’t willing to let allow ourselves to blossom into the flowers we can be. We are sacrificing our lives to fear.    So, How Good Are You Willing to Let it Get?   What happens if you let love in? What happens if you say yes to everything that excites you? What happens if you trust in your intuition? What happens if you release your fears and doubts? How will things change if you surrender, let go, and become one with your passions?   “it is a mess out there, but sit up tall, smile, and laugh. that’s your work.”    I first heard Sarah Seidelmann talk on a podcast she did with a mentor of mine, Jared Angaza, on "the wisdom of the wild things,” and I was immediately catapulted into a stronger, happier mindset. She’s one of those rare people that can change the way you look at life in its entirety with just a few words.    Sarah spent two decades practising medicine, specializing in surgical pathology, and raising her family. But something started shifting in her, drawing her into an exploration of deeper creativity, nature and intuition. She wanted to figure out what would make her FEEL GOOD all the time, and how she could apply her experiences to help others do the same. So, she took a six-month sabbatical from her job and started exploring.   Well, when you follow your bliss, magical things start to happen. Sarah followed hers through shamanic journeying, animal totems, and an interesting meeting with one of her spirit guides, Alice the Elephant.    To date, Sarah and Alice have co-authored multiple books, including their newest release, How Good Are You Willing to Let It Get? Daily FEELGOOD Inspiration for Creatives, Healers, and Helpers. (Secret**: She has a card deck coming soon too!)   I’m ecstatic to have Sarah on this episode of Never Stop Peaking, as we explore universal synchronicity, spirit-animal guides, the magic of nature, shamanic journeying, life transportations, the creative process, and more.

Kilimanjaro   If you are interested in climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, my friend Scott Brills runs a remarkable guide company, Pamoja Safaris. I can 200% vouch that my experience with his crew was heads and shoulders above all the other crews and groups that I witnessed on the mountain. I felt like I was with my second family, and the equipment, cost, culture, experience, and care was unmatched. Even if you are unsure of your ability to climb, especially at high altitudes, I’m confident his guides will get you to the summit with care.   I’d be happy to answer any questions about the climb if you are interested in going. Feel free to comment on this post or hit me up on social or email.    ---- The Maniac Wearing Shorts and Sandals on Kilimanjaro   Last December, I went back to Africa to revisit the school in Uganda that I had bonded with in 2017. While I was out there, I also pursued climbing Africa’s highest peak in Tanzania, Mt. Kilimanjaro, due to my love for the serene feeling above the clouds. I’m a firm believer that through exploring and experience in places unknown to you, you will connect with the magic in life that you’ve been missing.  Oftentimes, this type of magic comes in the form of human connection, just as it did when I met Ravi Rothenberg a few a days before the trek started.    Just a few sunrises into the climb, my perception of Ravi started shifting drastically. When you see a man wearing shorts and sandals in a rainstorm on the side of a freezing mountain, while everyone else is in full rain gear and base layers, you know you’ve got a true warrior on your hands. Although I’m a huge advocate of cold water therapy, breathwork, and other biohacking practices to help boost the mitochondria and immunity in the body, even I was a little concerned due to conditions and altitude. While most of us were trying to change into dry clothes and bundle up at camp, Ravi was out doing pushups and yoga in his undies, overlooking the edges of cliffs like a Greek God. And, who’s to say he’s not? After all, he was the only one who summited the climb without using altitude sickness medicine.    Getting to know Ravi was truly one of the highlights of my trip. Our conversations had no limit in-depth, and I sensed the wisdom of a character of who was truly dialed into something greater than the individual self. When talking to Ravi, I often feel a bit sedated and much more eager to listen and learn than normal, which is why I am truly excited to share this podcast episode with you.   In this episode, Baba Ravi and I catch up for the first time in a while, bouncing in and out of topics such Ravi’s journey, listening to your calling, identifying universal signs of flow, tapping into flow, levels of attachment in relationships, contemplating death, the “first-labeling” thought, and the importance of faith. Ravi also runs yoga, breathwork, and mind/body connection retreats, so hit him up if you are interested in getting in touch with your deeper purpose in life.

It was easy to wake and sleep with the rise and set of the Sun, and we didn’t have electronic lights or electromagnetic frequencies impacting our circadian rhythms. With the mass onset of computers, televisions, global internet, and the big electronic grid that we now live in, we started breaking our natural cycles and instead, we started operating in patterns that weren’t in alignment with nature itself. This shift in patterning has impacted the body and the mind, and although many incredible technological advances have helped save lives, cure diseases, and create long-term sustainable health opportunities, there has been deep negative side as well. Inflammation, depression, fatigue, pain, leaky-gut, and dietary issues can all be related to a lack of living within and understanding the environments that allow us to thrive. Biohacking and Epigenetics David Krantz is an Epigenetic Health Coach and an expert in Nutrigenetics, Epigenetics, Nutrigenomics, and Biohacking. He helps people analyze their DNA and genetics to optimize the perfect diet, sleep patterns, and immunity building practices in life. By doing so, not only does your creative expression and cognitive performance accelerate, but genetic healing can occur and change the way you experience life for the best. In this episode, we dissect all of these topics and more. We also break down tips for biohacking, including topics revolving around circadian rhythm, blue light exposure, intermittent fasting, Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio, toxins, meditation, heart rate variability, HIT exercises, cold exposure, earthing, and morning routines.

What is the root of your deepest trauma? What blockages are you holding physically and mentally that are preventing you from stepping into the next happiest, healthiest version of yourself? What kind of pains, experiences, and memories are you ready to let go of?    We all have our ups and downs, but how are YOU reacting to yours? What are they attached to? How are they affecting your relationships, your daily routines, and the passion within your pursuits?    For many years, I stuffed things away into the back of my mind hoping they would just disappear. On many different occasions, they boiled up into black-out rampages and deep pools of depression. I had no idea how to overcome these things that were crippling me. In reality, I didn’t even know what most of them were. We all experience suffering on a certain level, and no matter what level it is, it’s the hardest thing in the world for an individual when it hits.   My experiences with Ayahuasca and other types of Plant Medicine have been discussed before on this podcast. I am in awe with the love that these medicines represent as well as the deep healing wisdom of their teachings. When I was contacted by the crew behind the Documentary, From Shock to Awe, to potentially do a podcast, I was overcome with excitement and curiosity.    “There is really good news on this planet from the ground up, and not from the top down” - Dr. Janine Sagert   The general question being explored within From Shock to Awe is "How do we heal our deepest traumas and wounds?" Can this type of healing be facilitated through natural plant medicines and sacred journeys? Can these medicines help break up, re-pattern, and transform the deepest wounds that exist throughout this complex thing we call humanity?   PTSD, suicide, and chronic depression are some of the more notable issues that trauma can instigate. Within the film, these topics and questions are dissected throughout the exploratory and transformative journeys of a few deeply traumatized combat Veterans, as well as their loving and supportive, yet affected, families.    According to Wikipedia, the most recent report published by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2016 analyzed that an average of 20 veterans a day die from suicide. The current support system in place isn’t working, and changes must be made. Can plant medicines help save lives?    Executive Producer Dr. Janine Sagert joins me on this episode for a cosmic exploration into the powerful transformations of Veterans Matt Kahl, Aimee Kahl, and Mike Cooley. We are also joined by Olivia Broughton, a very special guest who has extensive experience with plant medicine ceremonies and authentic relating within the prison system to heal trauma.    On top of the film discussion, we break down the root causes behind our broken community support systems and open up the discussion for how a massive planetary shift has to start within each individual first.    To date, From Shock to Awe has won the “Mangurama Award for Conscious Documentary Storytelling” at the Illuminate Film Festival and “Best Documentary” at the Psychedelic Film and Music Festival. And it has received positive reviews from critics, experts, and audiences alike.    An Overview of the Veterans and Family Members Discussed in From Shock to Awe   Matt Kahl Matt Kahl served in the 101st Airborne Division from 2007-2011. When an ambush blew up one of the convoys he was traveling with, instantly killing the driver and seriously injuring the others passengers, Matt’s life changed. After struggling with severe post-traumatic stress, his mission since has been to get off prescription medications entirely, first with the help of cannabis and, eventually, ayahuasca. His healing through Ayahuasca was so profound that Matt went on to found Veterans for Natural Rights. VNR is a social welfare and political action organization with deep roots in the veteran population, specializing in helping those with PTSD and other Mental/Behavior health issues related to Trauma regain their lives, their purpose, and their sense of community.   Aimee Kahl In 2007, Matt and Aimee were married, and in 2008 he had deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division. In 2009, Aimee noticed Matt detaching and withdrawing. Matt chose his next step on his healing journey: ayahuasca. “I was scared and felt helpless, but at the same time determined not to stand in his way, noting that, “Everything he tried previously…all conventional meds, conventional therapy, made it worse.” More than anything, she was continually amazed at the bravery of he and his fellow vets. “They’re brave when they go to war and they’re brave now trying to get better. I admire it very much. “I want to get better with them because I realize through all of this, I’m not OK.”   Mike Cooley Cooley was deployed three times — once to Afghanistan and twice to Iraq — but it wasn’t until he returned home in January of 2009 and found himself suddenly losing his temper with his young stepdaughter that he knew something was deeply wrong. “Ayahuasca is the doorway that’s open to me, and I can accept this doorway, and it can bring peace and healing.”   Brooke Cooley Brooke Cooley met her husband, Mike, in December of 2007 while working at the 148th MP detachment in HR. After seeing the positive changes that cannabis had on her husband, they embraced the use of cannabis as a medicine, as “an alternative to the pharmaceuticals we were being handed by the hundreds,” says Brooke. “It worked; it worked very well for both of us.

Shownotes: www.heatharmstrong.com/27 Liz Sampey is the women’s record holder for the fastest time in the AZT 750 race, the world’s largest single-track bike race.  I met her in Indonesia in November of 2018, and she left a permanent inspirational impression on me thereafter.  I spent a few hours over breakfast with a dropped jaw, listening to her story which navigated a path from self uncertainty, toxic relationships, and depression to celebrated endurance athlete and holistic performance coach. A year later, we are finally re-connecting to bring the power of her story to the podcast. From ultra racing, spiritual rebirth, and contemplating death to a complete mental and physical breakdown at 2:00am alone while crossing a river in the Grand Canyon during a 750 miles race (watch the video of her breakdown) this conversation is exploding with goodness. We also dissect the power of not only visualizing your dreams but feeling them during the manifestation process.    Clearly, Liz never stops peaking. But, what kind of trauma and shadow did she have to work through to create the foundation that supports all the strength she now has? Listen to the episode for all answers.   https://www.heatharmstrong.com/27

If we are not meant to experience absolute miracles in life, then why does the miracle of life exist? If dreams are not real, and we are not destined to become one with them, then why are the visions within us? Why is the source part of us? What makes dreams any less real than our physical bodies? What makes dreams any less significant than our current situation or state of consciousness? In this episode, I explore these questions and many more...   Join me on this magical exploration of the creative universe. www.heatharmstrong.com/podcast

In the opinion of the beautiful brain sheltered within my skull, travel is the most magical and effective form of education. The experience of differing worlds, the virgin interactions with culture, and the pure disconnection from our routine lives are all packed with infinite wisdom, humility, growth and opportunity. There is simply nothing that gets me high like world travel.   I had the honor of meeting Ian Hoyt while on one of his Life Nomading trips in Bulgaria a few weeks ago. Ian started this travel resource as a blog many years ago, in the heat of dropping out of college to pursue his higher calling. From slinging aviation t-shirts and flying airplanes to building charging cubes for electronic devices in a creepy basement, Ian took several risky leaps toward entrepreneurship and following his muse before hitting his rock bottom fetal position attack from resistance.    In this episode, Ian and I dissect his journey from anxiety and resistance to creating transformational travel experiences with Life Nomading. We both whole-heartedly value efforts to help facilitate the exploration of personal growth through experience, and this episode takes a deep dive into why it’s so important to break out of your comfort box and create the life you love.    Shownotes: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/25   Upcoming Trips with Life Nomading: https://www.lifenomading.com/trips/   Website: LifeNomading.com Instagram: @LifeNomading   Join the Giveaway: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/giveaway   Leave a voice message for the show: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/voice

Levi Barker is remarkable Bwiti Iboga provider and facilitator at Iboga Wellness Center in Costa Rica. After being addicted to opiates throughout a large chunk of his twenties and thirties, Levi discovered the life-altering transformational and healing powers of Iboga, a plant medecine native to the Gabon and Cameroon areas of west Central Africa.    In this interview, we explore the sacred and ceremonial use of Iboga for personal transformation and healing, as well as its role as an unmatchable tool in opiate recovery ongoing integration. We also cover a little bit of the history, science, and common uses of the Iboga root and one of its alkaloids, Ibogaine.   “If we can get things moving on an energetic level, it helps us manifest what we want in our life on a physical level.”- Levi Barker   Iboga is an intelligent medicine that does no stop teaching. As if you are entering a portal to a waking dream state, it is common for experiences with Iboga or Ibogaine to dive deep internally, highlighting the importance of self-love at a core level.   To learn more about Iboga Wellness, or to get in touch with Levi, visit the links below:   1.844.450.6720 Email: info@ibogawellness.com www.ibogawellness.com   Shownotes: www.heatharmstrong.com/podcast (Transcription coming soon)

This episode is deeply about the successes and interruptions of my journey- and how I got to the point of considering bankruptcy a few months ago. The resolution is a deeply creative process of moving forward inflow, without trying to figure things out.  The second half of the episode is about affirming financial abundance.  HeathArmstrong.com

Enter this week's giveaway: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/giveaway Shownotes: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/podcast When was the last time you were outside, laying on your back with your big beautiful eyes gazing at the stars without distraction? In those moments, the only thing that seems to run through my mind is the pure magic of existence, the gratitude of experience, and the humility of myself. Even if you can remember a night like this, I bet it’s been nearly impossible to put a strand of nights together in this situation throughout your life. Most of us escape to the great outdoors only for a few days before we are suctioned back into the “work for money” life. What would it be like to disconnect for an extended period of time and live in the wilderness like our distant ancestors?    Sarah Wallace just finished hiking roughly 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, which spans from the Mexico border to the Canadian border, and it drastically changed her view of life forever. She noticed her personality warp, her compassion expand, and her sense of awareness explode to new realms. She morphed from extrovert to introvert in finding the serenity of spending time alone, but none of these miraculous transformations came without suffering, grit, or physical exhaustion.   I’m pumped to share episode 22 with Sarah because we explore who she was before the hike and who she is now. (and it’s a beautiful switch) We also rage into conversations about the detoxifying forest, the power of true community, gear tips, living a meaningful life, and the benefits of synching with nature’s circadian rhythm.    Sarah’s Instagram: @thedarlingdirtbag Sarah's website: http://darlingdirtbag.com/

Get a free chapter of Lily's book here: http://www.lilyannfouts.com/   Enter this week's giveaway here: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/giveaway View the shownotes here: https://www.heatharmstrong.com/podcast   About the episode:   In 1987, Lily Anne Fouts was eight years old. Her abusive father was given custody of her and her sister (age six) over their loving, magical mother due to an unfortunate judiciary decision. Lily and her sister begged their mother not to leave them with her father. Out of sheer unconditional motherly love in an attempt to protect her children, Lily’s mother offered her daughters a solution: to go on the run and escape the abuse while risking everything.    It wasn’t long before Lily’s face appeared on the milk cartons as a ‘missing child.’ For the next seven years, Lily, her mother, and her sister evaded authorities throughout the United States and Mexico, figuring out how to survive daily by the grace of good people, community, and a series of universal synchronicity visions that helped guide her mother along the way. This classified them as fugitives which meant that they were constantly being hunted.   In this episode, Lily breaks down her experience as a child on the run and all of the magic and tragedy that happened along the way. From puking in fish markets to escaping out back alleys while her mother was tracked by bounty hunters and cops, this story is remarkably inspiring and full of grit.    Ever since her conversion to living on the road, Lily has not given up the lifestyle of being nomadic. She travels and lives full time out of her RV with her husband, and uses her experience to help others create unconventional lifestyles of location independence and sustainable businesses on the road.    I met Lily in 2015 at the World Domination Summit in Portland, long before I ever moved to the Rose City. I’ve always admired and looked up to her approach at experiencing life, and I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am without her early (and continued) influence.    You can learn more about Lily at LilyAnnFouts.com and download a free excerpt from her book.

This is a reflection of the Ayahuasca experience that I have recently returned from. I had Mary Shores on Never Stop Peaking back in July to talk about her first experience, which was an incredible gate for my journey. Now, she returns to help facilitate the integration of my experience, as a channel and companion for opening up the deeper meaning of my healing.   The plant medicine Ayahuasca is an intelligence far beyond what our human brains can comprehend and explain in this language. In this episode, I do my best to share my experience, exactly as it was meant to be, and your interpretation will vary based on what you are in need of absorbing. Ayahuasca is not for everyone, but whether or not you are being called, this conversation will help open up your understanding of the collective consciousness, source, unconditional love, and ultimate truth.   Mary’s Book – CLICK HERE!

I met Whitney Cox in Nicaragua at The Unconventional Life Entrepreneur bash in late 2017. She had recently recovered from an unexpected battle with Breast Cancer, and I couldn’t help but notice the immense energetic, physical, and mental strength she was embodying. In a world where energy is everything, her vibes are needed more than ever.    Whitney is now the CEO of Warrior Girl, a coaching a retreat program for other warriors who wish to fight for the life they deserve. And, if Warrior Girl is a physical representation of the spiritual and emotional transformation that Whitney experienced, the Kilele Collection (her clothing line) is a visual transformation.    “The operation split me open from the inside. My heart softened and opened up to the world.”    I’m humbled to have Whitney on Never Stop Peaking for the first time, and I know her story will open your heart, no matter who you are.    --   Enter this week's giveaway: www.heatharmstrong.com/giveaway   Ask a Question or Leave a Comment on the show: www.heatharmstrong.com/voice   Visit the podcast shownotes: www.heatharmstrong.com/podcast   **Leave a review on iTunes and I will donate $2 to the HELP INTERNATIONAL foundation in Uganda, and I'll share it on the show.**
