The X-Factor of Psychedelic Culture Creators

Sep 25, 2022

By Shiri Godasi


I think a lot about what it means to “wake up”.


You have arrived here as, You are probably realizing - the age of consciousness is upon us.


In the light of devastating global events many people are “waking up” and are looking for others who get them, so to not feel alone and outcasted by the communities they have grown in, mostly still under a deep slumber. 


A hallmark of becoming awake is finding a sense of purpose in service. So many are boldly saying “YES” to a path of service and devotion to this global awakening. 


{Not without unique challenges of course - I’ve created an event to discuss major limitations in the space, find invite below}.


Naturally, those who themselves were served by plant medicines and psychedelics, wish to serve in that exact space. And attempt to get a foot into what is known as the psychedelic renaissance. They know in their hearts - this is what they are meant to do!


Yet - they are not sure if they have what it takes to be a part of this movement. 


Are they credentialed enough
Enlightened enough
Connected enough
‘Ethical’ enough
Experienced enough 
Good enough?


They want to contribute to the psychedelic mission and are left in the dust with their feelings of intimidation and hesitations.


What most of these folx can’t figure out is exactly how this unbelievable movement was created in a “normal” world with its many limitations. And who exactly has created it? 


The truth is, the psychedelic revival is created by “normal” people, just like You and I. 


And You, I and “them” have a lot more in common than most people realize!


There are certain X-factors… That much is true. 


But after 8 years as a bottom-up pioneer in the industry, I am here to tell You: 


That X factor is not unique, nor is it unattainable; in fact it is ludicrously commonplace, and can be easily acquired. 


It is called CONFIDENCE. 


Specifically, the confidence to be YOU in an ocean of people with expanded consciousness - and really big personalities. 


How to do this exactly? Well… 


This here is the well I have been swimming in for nearly a decade in the field. And this well has gifted me most of the tension that feeds my personal integration process. So many stories have come up through this question of “what exactly is this renaissance made of?” and “who exactly gets to create it?” 


Specifically - Who gets to decide the future of our industry, and of healing?


This confidence thing… Has never been my strong suit. But I’m at a point where I am able to observe the fear and do shit anyway. 


I’m an Enneagram 8 - Challenger to the core and one of my roles is to question everything.
Question the stories that make us, the presiding narratives, the hard-wired programming. 
To disrupt these MYTHS so we can see beyond their limitations. 
Then, to create new neuralpathways, instigate possibilities that previously were not there. 
Basically - to envision and create new realities.


This is the core of who I am, my psychospiritual programming - always have been, potentially always will be informed by this perception.


In the different stages of my awakening journey using entheogens I have “woken up” dozens of times. 


Like many of You - this awakening seems to have taken on a whole new level in the past year. I am bursting and I simply CANNOT HOLD BACK any longer.


I decided to create a class experience called “Disrupt The System: Decolonizing The Psychedelic Revival”. You can register for the experience at no cost here. 
Making these offerings is my way to both process these inner dialogues and expand them into the community. I believe it is an important conversation to have. It is also a way to dream up a new reality. 


And, wherever You are on your awakening journey, hear this message: 


It is all a dream. 
It is all real. 
It is all a reality we All dreamt. 


We can All dream up a new reality.
