Why Clearing is Vital Before Psychedelic Treatment Sessions

July 17, 2020 09:05:18

The best way to maximize psychedelic experiences is through early preparation before undertaking the treatment. In scientific terms, this process is called clearing, and it refers to the physical and emotional release of anything that may be causing a burden to your mind.

One of the main characteristics of psychedelic effects is the inner journey a patient takes. The goal of the treatment is to ensure the patient gets new insights, improved awareness and a feeling of connection with their inner self and wellbeing.

Rick Strassman, a DMT researcher published the importance of clearing before a psychedelic treatment session in a chapter of his The Divine Spark book called Preparation For The Journey. The book is a compilation of psychedelic related material. He provides examples of simple ways of clearing.

Some psychedelic clinics include emotional clearing in their program to help patients have an easy time during their journey. For instance, coming face to face with things that you’ve been ignoring to avoid any confrontations.

In the physical sense, clearing could involve taking care of unfinished activities. It could also mean creating space by clearing your mind. There is no way a patient can grow or transform if their mind is preoccupied with a lot of things.

Clearing serves to eliminate negative unconscious thoughts that may obscure a successful journey. In so doing, the patient is more at peace and can take in new insights. If the mind is preoccupied with many things, it won’t be able to have space for growth. Since psychedelics target the mind, its state before treatment matters.

There are various levels of clearing practices. It can be simple things such as cleaning the house, completing household chores, yard sales, donations, paying overdue bills, or anything else that’s unfinished. The mind will be drawn back and subconsciously keeps thinking about these unfinished matters.

Digital clearing is another form of clearing that’s beneficial too. Reading emails and responding to them, or sorting files in your computer can help clear nagging thoughts of having pending work.

Emotional clearing, on the other hand, is about letting go of the past and learning to embrace the future. Addressing issues that make patients not want to open up will help them have a rebirth during their psychedelic experience.

Other pre-psychedelic practice and techniques include keeping a journal, taking a picture trip, exploring your life timeline, and formulating your intention for medication. The goal of these preparations is to ensure that a patient has transformative experience.

Sector players like Cybin Corp. to undertake psychedelic trips in a clinical setting so that professionals can take charge of guiding the patient through clearing and any other needed processes in order to ensure better outcomes.
