The Evolution of Healing: The Marriage of Medicine and Spirit


The Evolution of Healing: The Marriage of Medicine and Spirit 
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
The study of ecosystems demonstrates that everything is related to, and dependent upon, everything else. Remove a predator and you are overrun by prey. Eliminate a nutrient and crops fail. Divert a river and multitudes die. Burn one area and another floods.
Humans are ecosystems – communities of numerous organisms and dimensions forming the whole. Changing one aspect will profoundly affect the entire system. Not only are we comprised of organisms that must have balanced interaction for health and longevity, but we are also physical, emotional, mental and spiritual beings. All these levels must maintain balanced – yet mobile – relationships for us to thrive.
Modern medicine dismantles the various levels, organisms and systems, studying and treating them as standalones by segregated practices. Some aspects, such as the spiritual (or energetic), are often not taken into consideration.

With us this hour to explore the marriage of medicine and spirit is Dr. Veronica Anderson, a MD, Medical Intuitive, Functional Medicine practitioner and Homeopath. She is the author of the #1 Bestselling Book  which became a Hot New Release in Holistic Medicine “But Now I See: A Medical Intuitive Surgeon’s Guide to the Meaning of Your Illness and how to Heal from Chronic and Incurable Disease.” She began her medical career as an Eye Surgeon and now has the distinction of being both a licensed physician and a practicing psychic.

Explorations in Consciousness: Psychedelic Research


Explorations in Consciousness: Psychedelic Research 
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
After the drug frenzy and purported resulting mental instability of the 60s and the 70s, marijuana and psychedelics were regarded with a jaundice eye – their benefits overlooked.  Now, after the turn of the century, we find ourselves faced with an opioid epidemic. Some sources say that, in 2019, over 20 million Americans will suffer from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids. That makes the 60s look like a walk in the park!
On the forefront of options to the massive overuse of opioids is medical marijuana. Once outlawed in the US, its many benefits have since been researched and now marijuana is currently legal in 29 states.
Presently, in addition to marijuana, scientists are taking another look at psilocybin. Human usage of psilocybin mushrooms predates recorded history. In Mesoamerica, these mushrooms had long been consumed in spiritual and divination ceremonies. Psilocybin is clearly a consciousness altering substance with many benefits and disadvantages.
It’s darn hard to evolve when one is in chronic pain. It is equally difficult to evolve when in the throes of addiction.
Do psychedelics offer a viable alternative to more addictive substances? Can they aid evolution of consciousness or do they induce delusion? And what about our children? Is making these substances more available putting them at risk? Is revisiting the usefulness of psychedelics providing viable alternatives, or reopening a can of worms that is best left firmly sealed?

Awareness: Coming out of the Darkness and into the Light


Awareness: Coming Out of the Darkness and Into the Light 
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Evolution is a process of waking up to greater levels of reality. Waking up requires we become mindful of where we are unconscious, or asleep, to what is. As we enter the Aquarian age and more expansive frequencies, the light is available for us to see more than in times past – if we open our eyes and are willing to look.
This is not as easy as it may sound. In effect, we have been asleep for generations upon generations. Unconsciousness and a limited perception of reality has become imbedded, not only into our belief systems, but our very DNA. In addition, like a frozen limb coming back to life, the process of waking up can be a painful one. Waking up results in the awareness of the heartlessness imbuing our world and our unwitting participation in it. The resulting guilt and shame tend to drive us right back into denial and unconsciousness.
How can we break this nonproductive cycle? What is required to embrace the light and remain present? What can help us move out of the darkness of times past and evolve into our potential?

With us this hour to explore this process of awakening is Loch Kelly,  author of the highly acclaimed, “The Way of Effortless Mindfulness.” Loch is a graduate of Columbia University and has been a leading meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and seminar leader for more than 25 years. Loch has worked in community mental health and counseled family members after 9/11. Founder of the nonprofit Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, Loch collaborates with neuroscientists at Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, and NYU, to study how awareness training can enhance compassion and wellbeing.
