Is Ayahuasca Worth It?
+ How to Live a Nomadic Lifestyle

Hi #BraveFriend, today we want to pop up a nice, cold bottle of champagne and celebrate! Because this is the first interview, we do for our Chase Your Fears Talks™ and we think you’re gonna love what’s ahead!  

Today’s guest is Lydia Jansen, a Dutch nomadic artist, who sat down with us to talk about how she manages to live and travel through Europe as an artist -And how doing that is much more accessible than you may think! 
Lydia will also be sharing her experience with the psychedelic drug, Ayahuasca which is used largely as a treasured sacrament in ceremonies among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon basinPeople who have consumed Ayahuasca report having mystical or religious experiences and spiritual revelations regarding their purpose on earth, the true nature of the universe, and deep insight into how to be the best person they possibly can. This is viewed by many as a spiritual awakening and what is often described as a rebirth. Lydia believes Ayahuasca transformed her life and is sharing her lessons with us. 

DISCLAIMER: This episode is not an endorsement of Ayahuasca or any other drug. We’re sharing the experience of one of our #bravefriends and letting her share her story and journey. There are health risks involved with Ayahuasca and its consumption is not legal in many places around the world. Should you decide to explore this option, please be sure you’re in a place where this is, in fact, legal and that you consult with a physician to ensure you’re in good health.

Here are a Few Nuggets of Wisdom From this Episode 

  • Sometimes life doesn’t happen the way we planned it, but the alternative outcome can be even better than our initial plan if we’re flexible and adjust as needed. Take the first step. The rest of the path will slowly reveal before you.
  • Being nomadic means that Lydia and her partner have to move on to the next destination, and that they don’t have a place to go back to. This means they're often pushed to go on towards the next adventure, even when they may not want to. And every time they go to a new place, all their old habits are gone. Because they have to make new habits in every new place. This process is liberating!  Every move is a new beginning. A chance to create new habits, to let go of old baggage and to grow. Travel is nice, nature is nice, meeting new people is nice. But discomfort is the most amazing thing about a life of constant travel. You're always growing, learning and evolving.
  • Learn how you can truly make any place your home in 48 hours or less with the 48 hours of no-complaining rule.
  • Have a solution-oriented approach to discomfort. If youre not comfortable, get up and do something about it instead of complaining. If there isn’t anything that can be done, practice acknowledging all the things you do like about the place or situation you’re in right now.  Sometimes grounding ourselves in gratitude is enough to shift our perspective. 
  • When we asked Lydia, what made Ayahuasca such a beautiful experience she told us that It give her exactly what she need at that moment in timeWe want to remind you that there are thousands of ways to get to this alternate state of mind and to find what you need; Ayahuasca is just one of the paths people choose to take. If Ayahuasca is something that doesn’t sound good to you, its not your path and you don’t have to use it. That’s okay. 
  • One of the most magical things we can do in life is to regain the capacity to slow down and look at the moments in between. Start noticing the journey, the path that will take you places. It isn’t about going from point A to point B. It’s about noticing what you see every step of the way. Because there’s magic there. You just need to open your eyes to see. 
"Ayahuasca completely shifted my whole perspective of things. It may sound too big, but I feel I now know the meaning of life.”
