Rising from Trauma on The Peace Bridge Talk Show Coming Soon

Are you stuck in your past ?

Our past is what  determines our present . However, sometimes unpleasant events from our past bothers us in the present and takes away our peace and happiness from us.

We tend to get into a place of sorrow,  guilt, shame and suffering that eventually eats up our energy and prevents us from progressing into our bright future. Eventually, it impacts our relationships at home, work, friends and more. 

We never realize that the buried past has been causing us problems in our day to day life and tend to ignore, avoid or succumb to activities that will help distract us from it. However, the traumatic effects of the past will continue to show up through our body and mind until we take action to work on it and cleanse it to move forward in our life.

Nothing in this world forever stays the same. Everything in this world around us undergoes change whether it is Nature, People, Places or Situations.  We cannot change our past but we can change our present. So, secure your present before it leaves your hands because that is all you have .

Past makes us in the present but don’t let the past take over your present.

You can’t go back and change the beginning but can start where you are and change the ending – CS Lewis 

Join me on “The Peace Bridge Talk Show”, 3rd Aug, Wednesday 5pm Pacific time to learn about ways to deal with your past using ancient wisdom based tools during my conversation with Rose A Ledoux( Enlightenment Coach) and receive a free workbook to overcome your past trauma.

Explore your Distractions

Posted by Amritha Kailas on
Explore your Distractions

We all have been granted the same 24 hours in a day. However, how do some people utilize it efficiently while some others do not. 

How did we become so busy everyday with no time left for ourselves?

We are surrounded by work, family, business and more activities. We have created busyness around us so much that we are always running around one after the other. This has made our minds jump from one thing to another continuously leaving us in a place of distraction.

We have made ourselves lead a life where we cannot sit quietly for a moment and look for vacations to fulfill it for us. 

Distractions have become part of our daily life where we are pulled by different devices from different directions.  There are external distractions in the form of phone calls, texts, emails and there are internal distractions in the form of our own thoughts, beliefs ,memories and imaginations. These distractions cause stress, anxiety, depression and more mental health issues leading to disappointments and diseases in our lives.

Today, I am going to share an exploration exercise that will help you explore your distractions 

  1. Identify  – Identify the external distractions around you that have been causing you to get distracted during your day. For example – It could be your physical environment, people, media, technology etc.

      2. Observe – Observe your internal distractions that have been impacting you during your day.

           For example – It could be your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, memories etc.

      3.  Assess – Assess how you feel after getting distracted?

      4.  Reflect – Reflect on “ What would you do if you were not distracted” ?

Our minds can perform at their best ability only if we are able to focus our attention . It is one of the most important factors that is required to become successful and discover peace  in life.  

A disturbed mind neither can help us discover peace nor enable us to achieve our goals efficiently. 

Focus and simplicity, once you get there you can move mountains – Steve Jobs

I look forward to sharing with all of you the ancient wisdom based tools that can help develop focus through my upcoming talk show on Voice America – Influencers channel starting July 27th, 5pm (Pacific time).

The Peace Bridge Talk Show Coming Soon on Voice America !!

I am very excited to share with all of you about my upcoming show on Voice America called “The Peace Bridge Talk show” that focuses on the topic of Spirituality and Emotional Wellness.

It also has the power to improve our emotional wellness and elevate us to a place of resilience in order to lead a balanced and peaceful life.

Through this talk, I am looking forward to sharing my expertise from ancient wisdom as well as connecting with amazing speakers from diverse areas across the wellness industry to share powerful spiritual tools and techniques.

Preparing for Your Magic Mushroom Journey- Practical Advice from Psychable

Preparing for Your Magic Mushroom Journey- Practical Advice from Psychable

Psilocybin (also known as magic mushrooms) is a natural psychedelic substance that can be used for spiritual and therapeutic purposes. Psilocybin mushrooms have a long history of therapeutic use and have been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years. Magic mushrooms are gaining popularity in the Western world, with many people seeking out how to take psilocybin in order to experience its hallucinogenic effects and to benefit their mental health.

Psilocybin mushrooms are currently listed as a Schedule 1 drug and are illegal in the United States and most other countries, but continued research on its health effects may eventually change that status.

Organizations like Psychable and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) are not only focused on spreading awareness and advocating for the decriminalization of psychedelic substances like magic mushrooms but also aim to share information that focuses on harm reduction strategies. One important harm reduction strategy is to ensure that you are adequately prepared for a psychedelic experience. It will help ensure that you are safe and will reduce the likelihood of experiencing a bad trip. We’ve compiled some practical advice from Psychable about how best to prepare for your own personal journey with psychedelics.

Find a Safe Place For Your Magic Mushroom Trip

The first and most important thing you need to do to prepare for your experience with magic mushrooms is to find a safe place where you feel comfortable.

Many people choose an outdoor setting for their magic mushroom experience. Getting outside and connecting with nature is a strong reminder that we are a part of something larger than ourselves. An outdoor setting is often the most popular choice for taking magic mushrooms because it can lead to powerful spiritual experiences.

If you choose an outdoor setting to experience magic mushrooms, consider choosing a place that is far enough away that you won’t encounter distractions. You may want to find somewhere where you can go on a hike or sit quietly and enjoy the views of nature. Having a sober sitter or guide accompany you on your trip is important so that you don’t put yourself in danger around water or roads. You should also make sure that someone knows where you are and how to find you in case of an emergency.

If you choose an indoor setting, a good place would be your own home. Home is typically a comfortable and familiar place where one feels in control. To a certain extent, you can control the environment by altering things like indoor temperature or lighting. You can also control the environment by doing things like diffusing a comforting scent, like lavender, which could help reduce any pre-journey jitters or anxiety.

Your Safe Place Includes People, Too

Finding a safe place also includes making sure you are comfortable with the people you are surrounded with. Especially if this is your first time trying magic mushrooms, it might be helpful for you to have a guide or sober sitter who has experience with taking shrooms. This should be a person you trust and who is committed to staying sober throughout your experience.

Decide if a Psilocybin Retreat is Right For You

Because psilocybin is still illegal in the United States, many people opt to attend magic mushroom retreats, which are often held in South America or other countries. Retreats are held in countries where psilocybin is legal, which makes some people feel more comfortable since they aren’t breaking any laws by partaking.

Magic mushroom retreats are often held in beautiful, tropical settings where the surrounding beaches and lush greenery bring to mind a sense of calm, peace, and closeness with nature. Packages may include lodging, healthy meals, individual check-ins with facilitators or sitters, and guided preparation activities. While this option may not be feasible for all people, for those looking for a holistic wellness experience and who want to focus on their overall mental health, it may be a great choice. You can search for magic mushroom retreats here

Prepare your Mind and Body

Once you are sure you have a safe and comfortable setting, you should prepare your mind and body. This means doing things like getting enough to eat and enough sleep the night before to help with any fatigue or tiredness that comes from traveling if you are going to a retreat somewhere away from home. You also want to make sure to have a good, healthy meal and drink plenty of water. These are all good habits to incorporate into your life anyway!

You’ll want to make sure you have supplies handy that you may need throughout the experience. Here is a list of some things to consider having on hand:

  • Plenty of water or electrolyte heavy beverages (like coconut water) to keep you hydrated, as you may experience fluctuations in body temperature.
  • A notebook or journal and pen so you can record your thoughts and experiences. You may want to come back to these at a later date to fully process your magic mushroom experience.
  • A playlist of calming music. You should choose music that is personal to you and aligns with your taste. If you are using your phone to play music, consider turning it on airplane mode to reduce distractions.

Consider What You Want to Get Out of Your Experience With Magic Mushrooms

It’s important to know what you want to gain from the experience, but also to have realistic expectations. Are you going on a journey for healing? Exploration? What do you hope will be different in your life after your experience with the drug?

If your goal is simply relaxation and introspection, just knowing that should help prepare your body and mind more effectively. But remember that it’s okay if nothing happens- different psychedelic drugs work differently on certain people. Rather than going into the experience with a certain set of expectations, try to approach the experience with curiosity and accept whatever the experience has in store for you.

If you’re going on a journey for healing, then it’s important to be mindful of that intention. If there are unresolved emotions or trauma that need processing, know that your brain may be about to relive some unprocessed emotions, which can be both an intense and positive experience at the same time. Many people find it worthwhile to have a trained therapist help them process and integrate the experience following the journey.

##Understand the Risks of Taking Psilocybin Mushrooms

Psilocybin mushrooms are not addictive but they do carry some mild risk of adverse reactions.

It’s rare for someone to have adverse reactions after taking mushrooms; however, it can happen. The most common adverse reactions are nausea, vomiting, and dizziness. You can reduce your chances of experiencing these adverse reactions by starting with a small dose. How much you take can make a difference in what the effects will feel like.

Take special care to not consume other hallucinogens or drugs while on shrooms, as this can put you at a higher risk of having an adverse reaction and may change the effects.

Back To School & Work Stress-Free Discovered On Sharon Kleyne Talk Radio

Back To School & Work Stress-Free Discovered On Sharon Kleyne Talk Radio

Nancy Yonally & James Derick Share Stress-coping Education with Sharon Kleyne on Kleyne Talk Radio. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Trade Secret pH-Balanced Water Sponsors Power of Water® Water Life Science® Sharon Kleyne VoiceAmerica.

Today on Sharon Kleyne’s internationally syndicated talk radio program The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, naturally pH balanced water technology for acid mantle protection at VoiceAmerica World Talk Radio & Apple iTunes, Nancy Yonally, a wellness consultant and corporate trainer https://www.linkedin.com/in/nancyyonallycoleman/ who battles substance abuse and mental disorders in Oregon and James Derick, founder of SAFE Coalition, Inc., headquartered in Norfolk, Massachusetts will discuss and explore coping with COVID-19 stress and getting people back to school and work as safely and as swiftly as possible.

“We have to get kids back to school,” insists Kleyne, “because we’re causing them more stress and anxiety by keeping them locked up at home.” It’s true that since the assault of the Coronavirus pandemic, incidents of physical, drug and alcohol abuse have gone up and up in American households. The kitchen tables of America, once so strong, are wobbly as parents cope with lack of income and jobs.

“There is a physical aspect to the isolation created by the pandemic,” says Derick, “but there is also a spiritual component. Without the in-person support that existed before the pandemic, the voices inside can get really loud. People are fighting the stigma attached to mental illness, so we at SAFE are continually messaging and calling people to let them know they are not alone.” This is especially important when people are self-isolating for the general good. Derick points out that the mission of SAFE Coalition is to provide support services to those impacted by Substance Use Disorder. SAFE helps area communities by teaching strategies for prevention, education, peer connection and treatment options. Derick ad SAFE Coalition have come to the assistance of a quarter-million people with substance abuse disorders.

Yonally, a former Health Department consultant for schools and a founding member of Graceroots Pathways to Wellness in Grants Pass, Oregon, shares that “substance abuse indicators are as broad as the population. Poverty is a key trigger, and so is drug experimentation, especially among young people, and they’re getting younger and younger (8-9-10 years old),” Yonally says. “Children are absolutely indestructible in their minds,” adds Yonally. “They believe it’s not going to happen to them. They believe they can handle it. It’s just a toy, and especially among the very young, it’s just a game.”

Yonally believes that communities everywhere have to wake up. “Denial is so dominant,” she says, “especially in the field of substance abuse. It’s difficult because sometimes when you think you know what the community needs to know, there might not always be the reciprocal response. My underlying motivator has been prevention.”

Prevention, safety and common sense drive Kleyne to educate people that “we have so much to learn about water, body water lost to evaporation and this pandemic. People don’t have the patience our forefathers had to learn about how body water loss causes symptoms of illness and disease and can lead to addictions. We don’t know it all!” Kleyne warns, “but we had better learn fast!”


Though the west coast fires and smoke-choked skies have somewhat abated, Kleyne still reminds everyone to join her in prayer for thousands of firefighters, law enforcement, scientists, medical personnel, first responders and people that have lost their businesses and homes. “Let’s pray for the heroes,” says Kleyne, “who are risking their lives so that others may live.”
