Why We NEED a Safe Space to HEAL (Gambia)

As you may know, I’m in the process of setting up a Retreat Home in the Gambia for our healing Retreats.  It’s important to have a safe space for us to heal because some of the methods we will be using are ‘unconventional’.  That is, some of the plant medicines we will be using to help us heal have been BANNED by the medical establishment, 1) because they can’t make money from a plant, and 2) because these plants are our short-cut to healing on a deep psychological level.  For instance, Iboga is a plant from Africa that has been made illegal, yet the medical establishment have made a chemical drug from it called Ibogaine, which is used to cure addictions.

I initially began my self healing journey using Positive Affirmations, Meditation, changing my food intake to a more plant based diet, and spending more time in nature.  But after 15+ years, I reached a point where I didn’t know what else to do, yet I was still not fully healed from my psychological trauma.  So I asked Spirit “What now??”

This is when I was introduced to plant medicines; first psilocybe (magic) mushrooms, then cannabis oil.   I’m now on the road to complete recovery, working my way up to Iboga, ‘the father of all plants’, which is known to clear all trauma buried deep in the subconscious.  I feel that plants such as these are our fast-track to repairing our DNA.

When I took mushrooms for the first time, I had a deep insperience which took me through my ancestry before slavery (royalty).  The message I received was that my my enslaved ancestors endured such pain, that it altered their DNA structure.  Can you imagine being whipped until the skin on your back is raw?  Or being repeatedly raped by different men?  Or seeing your children, wife, or mother abused and being helpless to do anything about it?  As a child, I was beaten mercilessly, and I now see the link between how my mother was programmed, and plantation life.  She’s not to blame, she was simply enacting her genetic coding.  However, when you’re being brutally beaten, your mind may split, or dis-associate in order to deal with the unbearable pain.  The cruel whippings were not just a physical violation, they were aimed at breaking our ancestors down mentally, in order to reprogram their minds to how they wanted them to think.

If you’re the descendant of an enslaved African (especially if you’re Jamaican) you may be carrying genetic memory of past trauma in your DNA.  If you truly wish to be healed, join me on this plant medicine journey!

If you look on Youtube for videos about ‘magic’ mushrooms, Ayahuasca, cannabis oil, Iboga etc, you’ll notice its mainly Europeans who have been going on these kind of Retreats.  I’m learning about these plant medicines with the aim of bringing them to the Gambia to incorporate them on my Retreats.

PMP – Plant Medicine Pusher

Last week, while in a trance state from inhaling distilled cannabis oil, the letters ‘PMP‘ flashed before my eyes in big bold black capitals, like a logo – I asked what it meant, and I got the message ‘Plant Medicine Pusher‘.  I burst out laughing!  Yes, I’m a P(i)MP!  I also saw the message; “Plant medicines are my friends, and I need to get to know them better”

My job (which I accept willingly) is to introduce plant medicines to my community.  I actually think they work better on us because of our Melanin (which is also in plants).

HELP ME HELP YOU!

I’m still fundraising for the container I sent to the Gambia for our new Retreat Home.  Even though most of the furniture was donated, it cost me nearly £1,500 to ship them, plus I still have to pay another £635 at the other end, for them to clear customs and be delivered to the house! I managed to raise £650 in contributions for the container (£500 from my own sister), and used the money I collected for the November and December Retreats to make up the balance.  I’m not taking on any stress, so I’m appealing to my commUNITY to help raise the £8,000 needed to fully get the Retreat Home ready! (this includes a year’s rent in advance for the Retreat Home):
