The neurotransmitter 5-MeO-DMT ..
Since the fifteenth Century when the Catholic Church published the book Ars Morendi Western culture has been concerned with the easing and enhancing of the inevitible death process. There is extensive Oriental literature on the subject as well including the and (8th century) that describe the death process and ascension into the afterlife in great detail. With the emergence of entheogens in the 1960s researchers such as Aldous Huxley and Dr. Richard Alpert considered the use of properly administered entheogens at the moment of death to ease and clarify the transition process. Henry Luce, the founder of TIME Inc, was known to use LSD to transition his death and there are many others. At the same time, researchers such as Dr. James Fadiman began to investigate the practice of (previously mentioned) microdosing, that is, using fractional amounts of a full dose of an entheogen to enhance subconscious perspective especially in creative pursuits, see:. Perhaps the combination of these two practices using DMT (with a MAO inhibitor) to support the natural transition process would prove to be an effective therapy. Theoretically, the pineal gland secrets a dose of METAtonin, endogenous DMT, at the moment of death to aid in the separation of conscious awareness from the body. DMT is the only entheogen known to facilitate this separation process, though there may be others. But DMT is unique in that it is a natural byproduct of human biochemistry and found throughout the natural world. Microdosing DMT would support and encourage the end-of-life pineal process, especially if the pineal gland has been compromised in some way.
Several institutions such as Hospice, The Living/Dying Project, Upaya Zen Center and Mettainstitute have developed
protocols for establishing a supportive atmosphere and a progressive treatment procedure for those who are dying. Since a full dose DMT works rapidly and the experience usually lasts less than 15 minutes it would prove problematic to try to administer a full dose of DMT at the moment of death, however it could be administered continually at a fraction of full dosage so that it would be in effect at the moment of death. With microdosing administration, the DMT would be working a below perceptual levels but would still enhance the transition process especially if the pineal gland is compromised due to calcification from heavy exposure to public water supply flouride or other pollutants. The goal in mind is to remain conscious throughout the death process so that the experience becomes a graduation instead of a termination. Microdosing a neurological enhancer such as DMT (or 5-MeO-DMT, preferred by James Oroc and Dr. Martin Ball) might be an option to consider in attaining this goal.. Visit:, , , and .
It's interesting to note that one of the most widely recognized stages of the death process is the life review. If you ever think that you are being watched, you probably are - you are being watched by your future self in the process of returning to your eternal self. See: . Not only will you experience every act and emotion of your earthly existence; the life review is "panoramic" meaning that it includes all Akashic information: not only will you experience all your emotions, but also the of all your actions and the emotions on all of those who you have interacted with, i. e, your emotional wake. Surprisingly, seemingly small acts of unconditional spontaneous love and gererosity that may not even be remembered will sometimes be noted as some of the most significant acts of a persons life as well actions and decisions that contribute to spiritual evolution; embodying truth, beauty and goodness.
The Concept of Lifetime Partners: several religions and philosophies suggest that we have a lifetime etheric partner with whom we are entangled. A partner who we journey with in this lifetime and with whom we are destined fuse with at a later date. This is discussed as the "sense presence" of an accompanying guide as suggested by Anthony Peake in his , the concept of the in Zoroastrianism and the concept of the Mystery Monitor or Thought Adjuster in the .
that can induce biosynthes to DMT or more likely 5-meO-DMT
also supports the theory that even with the DMT experience (in this case 5-MeO-DMT) which is essentially an out of body experience, setting is still a relevant concern. The body left behind needs to be attended to, especially in the event that there are signs of anxiety. Also, proper setting also buffers the return to the realm of normalcy.
Dr. did have some control over the mindset of his participants, though, in that he specifically chose participants who exhibited , that is, they had previously experienced altered states of consciousness and were more accustomed to the sometimes unnerving sensation of consciousness transition. It should be noted that the complete concept of mindset involves more than just consciousness flexibility; it also includes the factors of and .
Q: Over the last few years you have begun the practice of darkroom therapy, why is that?
A: According to Mantak Chia, “The darkness actualizes successively higher states of divine consciousness, correlating with the synthesis and accumulation of psychedelic chemicals in the brain. Melatonin, a regulatory hormone, quiets the body and mind in preparation for the finer and subtler realities of higher consciousness (Days 1 to 3). Pinoline, affecting the neuro-transmitters of the brain, permits visions and dream-states to emerge in our conscious awareness (Days 3 to 5). Eventually, the brain synthesizes the “spirit molecules” 5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) and dimethyltryptamine (DMT), facilitating the transcendental experiences of universal love and compassion (Days 6 to 12).” So during a darkroom retreat we can experience the benefits of different brain functions.
