People Are Finding TRUE Healing
Posted by Literary Titan
Triumph Over Trauma is a well-researched book sharing information and stories from real people on the positive benefits of using psychedelic medicines; why was this an important book for you to write?
Stories are one of the most powerful tools for sharing information, and they have been used forever by cultures to share important history, rules, people, etc.
While the factual content of the book is important to counter the 50+ years of lies fed to us about these psychedelic medicines, I knew that humanizing the process and having people share their vulnerabilities and need for healing would be extremely powerful.
And the idea was to find the greatest diversity of storytellers as I could – with the idea that every reader could identify with at least one of the storytellers, either based on age, gender, ethnicity, trauma.
Finally, and this will sound odd to anyone who has not had a psychedelic experience, but I had no plans to write a book about psychedelics, but during a beautiful LSD journey, the outline came to me in what we call a “digital download.” So, the medicine pushed me to write this book… because these medicines WANT the world to heal.
What is a common misconception you feel people have about psychedelics that you hope this book clears up?
Do you have all day?
Seriously, as an educator, my main goal with the parts of the book that I wrote was to fix/correct all the misinformation and outright lies we have been fed since the 1970s.
But beyond the lies, an even crazier part of this story is that several of these medicines were being used as part of psychotherapy in the 1950s and 1960s – with AMAZING results. And there were many research studies done during that time as well … and ALL of it simply vanished after psychedelics were made illegal.
The biggest misconception? That these substances are dangerous, addictive, and just recreational.
TRUTH? People are finding TRUE healing; people are enhancing/expanding their spiritual lives/awakenings.
Psychedelic substances are not addictive; and most people do NOT need to be on psychedelics forever, as with antidepressants. In fact, psychedelics are proving very successful at STOPPING addiction in people addicted to alcohol, tobacco, opioids.
The TRUTH is that these substances are indeed medicines that are dramatically healing people – like the 23 stories in the book.
What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?
- Frequently asked questions (with answers) about psychedelics
- The truth about why psychedelics are illegal – as well as the changing legal landscape
- Medicine options – macrodosing (hallucinogenic effects) and microdosing (no outward experience)
- Discussion of the major psychedelics, how they work, and all the details to know about each substance
- Examples of how psychedelics have completely transformed people
- Detailed glossary of psychedelic terms
- Additional resources for people wanting more – books, documentaries, websites
What is one thing that you hope readers take away from Triumph Over Trauma?
That there is HOPE! That there is TRUE healing.
