Soulcybin: Exploring its Potential and a New Approach in Psilocybin Aided Therapy
Soulcybin can be used to describe an approach to psilocybin that focuses on spiritual and transformative experiences. How to humble yourself?
Soulcybin’s term comes from the authors of “Soul Centered – Transform Your Live in 8 Weeks with Yoga, Meditation and Psychedelics”. They claim that psilocybin should be used for spiritual growth. Soulcybin has been a subject of much research, both in terms of its historical background, as well as its effect on the body.
Soulcybin, A History
Soulcybin was coined in the 1990s, but it is not new. It is used by indigenous cultures around the world for religious and spiritual purposes. Indigenous cultures use psilocybin as a spiritual tool and for religious reasons for hundreds of years. Modern times saw the rise of the therapeutic use of Psilocybin in the 50s and 60s, when Timothy Leary & Richard Alpert began studying the effects psychedelics had on the human brain.
Mechanism and effects
Psilocybin acts on serotonin and 5-HT2A brain receptors. After ingestion, psilocybin transforms into psilocin. These receptors are activated, causing changes to perception, mood, or cognition. Although the effects of Psilocybin are different from person-to-person, they include sensory perception changes, euphoria introspection and interconnectedness.
Soulcybin therapy differs significantly from traditional therapy, in that it stresses the spiritual aspect of the therapy. Soulcybin Therapy focuses on the facilitation of personal growth by using psilocybin in conjunction with complementary practices, such as yoga, meditation and breathwork.
Soulcybin treatment has demonstrated promise for the treatment of mental conditions including anxiety, addiction and depression. In conjunction with psychological help, the research shows that psilocybin can be used to achieve profound psychological and spiritual experiences.
