Exploring the Overlap of Yoga Nidra & Plant Medicine - Somah Journeys 21/08/2023

Simone's new blog:
Exploring the Fascinating Convergence of Yoga Nidra & Plant Medicine/Psychedelics

My journey with Yoga Nidra began nearly two decades ago, and although I might have dozed off during my initial encounter, it sparked a profound fascination that eventually led me to delve deep into this transformative practice. As the years passed, I immersed myself in the study of Yoga Nidra with a number of the main schools and methods. Parallel to my explorations with Yoga Nidra, I felt drawn to the world of entheogenic plant medicines recognizing a profound connection between these seemingly different paths of healing. While not everyone is drawn to plant medicine, I discovered that Yoga Nidra holds within it the potential to offer similar, albeit subtler, experiences, making it a practice of its own right but also an invaluable preparatory and integrative tool for those who embark on medicine/psychedelic journeys.

Understanding Plant Medicine & Psychedelics in a Healing Context

When I speak of plant medicine and psychedelics, it’s essential to clarify that I approach them with a focus on their healing potential that open us to our spiritual nature. I honour that these substances have been used recreationally and have brought significant shifts to many lives. However, in this context, I refer to their ceremonial and medicinal use with reverence for indigenous lineages around the world that have held and been guided by this wisdom for thousands of years.

The Captivating Realm of Consciousness

I’m profoundly interested in the vast realm of consciousness and both Yoga Nidra and plant medicine/psychedelic healing ignited my curiosity and fascination for the exploration of these realms. Yoga Nidra, a practice of deep relaxation and meditation, holds the potential to facilitate profound psychological shifts, expand sensory and spiritual awareness, and open doors to altered states of consciousness where all the magic happens. Plant medicine and psychedelics, such as psilocybin, ayahuasca, and san pedro (and many more), can induce altered states characterized by heightened sensory perception, shifts in thought patterns and so much more. These gifts from Mother Nature affect our personal and collective field of consciousness, rippling through time and space, influencing not only the present but also our ancestral lines and generations to come. The convergence of these practices is a captivating area of exploration, with profound connections evident in their influence on brain activity, altered states, and the potential for healing.

Unraveling the Influence on the Default Mode Network

An interesting overlap lies within the Default Mode Network (DMN), a network of brain regions responsible for self-referential thoughts, mind-wandering, and the construction of our sense of self. Both long-term meditation practices and the use of psychedelics have been shown to deactivate the DMN. When the DMN is active, it reinforces narratives centered around “I-me-mine thinking,” strengthening our egoic identity.

Deactivating the DMN opens a door to the Present-Centered Mode Network, leading to a dissolution of self-boundaries. This widening recognition of infinite possibilities allows for insights to arise, the positive to overcome the negativity bias, and individuals to experience a profound sense of interconnectedness with the universe. These experiences may give rise to insights often described by individuals during psychedelic journeys as well as yoga nidra journeyers, where they sense a quieting of the incessant thinking mind and may experience an increased feeling of unity with their surroundings.

Enhanced Brainwave Patterns

Beyond the DMN’s influence, both Yoga Nidra and psychedelics have a profound impact on brainwaves and bring the brain and heart into coherent patterns. Yoga Nidra’s meditative practice induces alpha and theta brain waves, associated with deep relaxation, heightened creativity, and access to the subconscious mind which is the driving force behind most of our behavioural and conditioned belief patterns. Similarly, psychedelics have been observed to induce changes in brainwave activity, often characterized by increased alpha and theta waves. These altered brainwave patterns likely contribute to the heightened sensory perception and altered states experienced in both practices, fostering profound healing and shifts in our psychology and physiology.

Unlocking the Potential for Deep Healing

Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects of this convergence is the potential for deep healing. Both Yoga Nidra and psychedelic experiences have been linked to facilitating emotional processing, addressing childhood wounds, overcoming addictive patterns, healing relational issues, resolving health imbalances, and releasing psychological blockages. Participants often report transformative experiences, leading to increased self-awareness, personal growth, and healing from past traumas.

Embarking on a Profound Journey

The interplay between Yoga Nidra and psychedelics is a captivating journey into altered states of consciousness, brain function, and the potential for profound healing. The deactivation of the Default Mode Network during both practices appears to be a pivotal aspect that fosters a softening of personal identifications right through to ego-dissolution and nurturing a sense of our broader interconnectedness.

The influence on brainwave patterns and the potential for deep healing are indeed intriguing. As we continue to delve into this fascinating territory, we are bound to uncover more profound truths about ourselves and the body/mind/spirit connection. Whether we embark on a meditative journey with Yoga Nidra or venture into the realms of plant medicines, or catalyse the healing potential using both practices to complement each other, we embark on a profound exploration into the mysteries of consciousness. It is one filled with wonder and potential for healing, self-discovery, spiritual growth and provides essential medicine for our troubled times.

Hello friends,

Also, I invite you to make a cup of tea, take 3 deep breaths to settle your nervous system and have a little break from your day to read this.I invite you to make a cup of tea, take 3 deep breaths to settle your nervous system and have a little break from your day to read this.

I'm a long-form kind of gal - a slow and steady presence in a fast and frantic world, that's part of my personal medicine. If you're a "TLDR" (too long didn't read) sort of person, if you're feeling overwhelmed or lacking direction, this might just be for you.

As we come to the midway point of 2021, we are invited into a time for reflection of the year so far. Perhaps we bring attention to where we’ve been and where we may be heading. If you’re like me, I’m considering where there’s a need for more support and calling it in....

HI dear ones,

how are you each navigating these times?

I'm feeling myself slowly emerging from my own cocoon. My past year has been quite solitary, fortunately it has not been due to restrictions, but rather somewhat self-imposed solitude. I've been in Thailand, the longest I've been in one place in years, which has offered an opportunity to go deeply into practices, to truly FEEL all that's showing up. From that place, I’m inspired to share the medicine of Yoga Nidra with online live classes.

I welcome you in to the nidra nest!

In these quiet spaces, there's a magic that happens when we give ourselves full permission to let ourselves BE, to dream, to sink deeply into non-doing. Yoga Nidra is a beautiful practice that supports the wisdom of our BEing. When we can take shelter in rest, our imaginations can be set free. Where we create a responsibility-free space, we can access the realm of sacred dreaming. This becomes an Oracle space, in which not only profound healing of our bodies, emotions, and mind occurs, but we can begin to access and follow the call of our own soul’s wisdom...and to also begin to dream a new world into being. This is the opportunity at hand.

I'd love to see your shiny faces...and even imagine a (muted!) snore or 2 sneaking into the space. ;)

Much gratitude and love to you all.

Ho O' Pono Pono ~ I'm so sorry and I Love you, Please forgive me & thank you ~ Hawaiian Prayer ~ 18/08/2020

Today, like many other days, amidst deep gratitude for being able to live in a place as magical and beautiful as this, I walked the beach gathering up plastic bags, cups, wrappers, straws, bottles, caps, flip flops, rope, etc. All of it is trash that the tides wash to shore every day. Everyday I am reminded, amongst this beauty, of the way we trash our only home. The primary item is plastic that chokes up everything and doesn’t biodegrade.

As I was gathering the trash, I sang the Ho’oponopono prayer and began to weep. The tears flowed for all the ways we’ve lost our way. I wept for all the creatures that have had their lives stolen as a result of our deluded ways, like this puffer fish.

As I was gathering the trash, it was so clear to me that the garbage floating to shore from the body of our beautiful ocean-mama is no different than the garbage that is held within each of us. Our own bodies and minds and hearts are clogged up with trauma, toxicity, pain and suffering that has never been tended to or properly processed. Generations have gone by without adequate means to tend to the mounting inner wounds. Once we are able to tend to those inner wounds, once we are able to clear up our own inner garbage that pollutes our bodies, minds, hearts and ancestral lines, then undoubtedly polluting the body of our Earth-mama will cease.

The work begins right here. Right here with me. Right here with you. Not out there, but in here. Right now. With tenderness and care. When tears flow, know they are watering the ground of your heart.

Ho’oponopono is a powerful prayer in the Hawaiian tradition that speaks to the notion of “setting things right”. It is a powerful doorway into our hearts that allows us to take radical responsibility in the most loving tender way. From a place beyond the mind, an understanding emerges that there is no blame, that nothing will ever be held against us and that we can begin to recogn-eye-s that wounding is created by wounding…. that pain feeds pain…that hurt people hurt people….and when we have the capacity to access our hearts, moving from compassion, goodwill and wanting ALL beings to know that they are loved and do not deserve to suffer, then true healing can occur, one by one, starting with ourselves, then rippling through the collective field. This prayer offers us an opportunity to hold everyone with regard, even those we do not agree with or who have hurt us.

Mother, Father, Sister, Brother....
Green Ones, 4 legged, Fliers, Crawlers, Swimmers...
The Waters and this living Earth....
I am so sorry
I love you
Please forgive me
Thank you

The personal is political.

As within, so without.
