What Is Possible through Wealth Generation in the Psychedelic RevivalApr 08, 2022
By Shiri Godasi
Some time ago my husband Ben told me that giving anonymously is the highest form of tithing because it completely obliterates the ego-factor and power dynamics that can ensue in a financial exchange.
As for me, I am not nearly close to being this enlightened. I still feel a need to show and tell to demonstrate what is possible through this work in psychedelic spaces. So here’s a personal story about psychedelics + money:
2021 has been an expansive year of breaking through all ceilings related to abundance and scaling my work in the Psyched Soul PlaySkool to generate wild amounts of revenue.
This was new for me. I tend to operate as a lone warrior and haven’t modeled my psychedelic support endeavors after anyone - it was all based on listening to clients and trying to answer their unique needs, combined with my own passions and service capacity… There was lots of trial and error over the years... And this year has floored me at the outcomes of these experiments, combining modern online marketing strategies with my integration methods.
I also recognized the shadow our community claws around mixing $$$ and sacred work. In illuminating Trixter fashion, I began infusing it into my integration school as a tool for social change, created a masterclass to reprogram limited money mindset, and made it the focus of every podcast/summit interview.
An MDMA/Bufo experience around that time revealed that the outer dialogue I was stoking was all a projection of my own complexes; I was internally guided to STOP talking about it immediately. Growing up in a modest family and household, these weren’t conversations that were ever had (side from “we can’t afford that”). I was instructed to sit with the stirred energy instead of spilling it all over the place through unrefined and immature filters. So I did.
And the energy began to transmute.
Curiously, the emerging theme of that ceremony manifested as “Pay your dues” (naming ceremonies in the integration process = stellar integration technique!), Meaning:
Before You erect visionary towers, You must retract and return the energy to its source to complete the cycle.
Return it, for it is not for You to hoard, but to channel.
Return to those who came before You.
Return to those who’s shoulders You are standing on.
Return to the elders, the Mothers, and Fathers.
Return to the land.
Return to those who have held space, taught You, given You so much, nurtured You directly and indirectly.
Return and give back.
Reciprocate the immensity of love, forgiveness, and compassion You have been granted throughout your life, through your lineage.
This was months ago, and the theme is still unfolding in my integration spiral, refining and offering perfect pearls for my psyche.
Integration sophistication is a mere re-integration back into the environment that has shaped us. Sacred reciprocity is a part of the business model and a portion of the earnings are recycled into the causes that align with my value system and the reality I wish for our beautiful world.
Donations were made to Erowid, The Ancestor Project, Drug Policy Alliance, The Boa Foundation, Chacruna Institute, Plant Teachers, PsychedeLiA Integration, among others - intentionally leveraged for greater social change. It feels darned amazing!
I give mySelf permission to attract wealth because I know it will be dispersed through other sacred channels that are a voice for community, nature, wisdom keepers, and medicine. These are the songs I yearn to hear.
If you’re thinking of becoming a psychedelic healer ‘cause you want to help people, I invite you to think bigger: Psychedelic business ventures that we build in grit and bliss in 3D are vehicles for radical activism and progressive change towards the 8D. The programs created through Us are a magnet for energy. The energy is not Ours to hold.
It flows through Us to pay Our dues whilst sustaining Us
And the Creations.
This is the perfect time to GIVE and to make your tax-deductible donations to the causes you care about and the reality YOU wish to create.
Here’s an excellent option:
PsychedeLIA Integration is one of my psychedelic children - birthed in the back of a small spiritual boutique where we held our first integration circles in Los Angeles. Unbelievably, this coming January PsychedeLiA will celebrate its 5th birthday as a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that provides multiple low-cost integration circles, accessible psychedelic education seminars, and donation-based social events for the community. Truly the definition of grassroots organization causing much-needed social shifts, it has inspired a movement and the sprouting of many integration communities across the world.
The pride of PsychedeLiA is the 'Integration Fund': a bank assisting marginalized and underserved persons that have been subjected to systemic forms of discrimination such as BIPOC and LGBTQ+ populations. This bank provides scholarships for subsidized psychedelic integration therapy or psychedelic integration coaching support (and in the near future psychedelic treatments themselves). The organization is supported fully by local volunteers who contribute their time to keep it operational. It is funded solely from income generated by events, and the generosity of people like You.
You can make a donation to the fund or apply to receive the benefits HERE.
