MDMA- a potent heart opener
The meaning of the acronym MDMA is 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine. It is a synthetic substance that alters mood and perception. Chemically, it is similar to stimulants and hallucinogens, and is a member of the phenethylamine family of chemicals.
MDMA is commonly called Ecstasy or Molly, however Ecstacy (known by most people as a party drug) contains other substances besides MDMA, which in some cases may be harmful. Pure, pharmaceutical grade MDMA, used in therapy does not contain adulterants.
MDMA as therapeutic tool
While more research is needed to draw conclusive results, MDMA is known to suppress activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain responsible for fear and anxiety. This fact, next to high levels of serotonin in the brain, produces empathetic and pro-social feelings, which help to lessen anxiety induced by interacting with other people. MDMA enables us to look at ourselves and others without judgement and therefore offers a new perspective on our narrative. Enhanced feelings of self love can change our self image for ever.
At Aluna we work with MDMA during individual healing sessions. We find this to be a helpful substance for those who feel apprehensive in undertaking a plant medicine journey and would like to test the waters through an MDMA experience.
Many combat veterans and fire fighters suffering from severe PTSD have found their way to this heart opening substance with our guidance. MDMA’s ability to instill feelings of calmness and increased trust has been proven to be life changing for these individuals. They were able to understand and explore traumatic events in a complete new and safe manner.
MDMA also offers a wonderful healing opportunity for you and your partner or any other dear relationship in your life. As time passes in relationships, we often lose the initial connection because we stop sharing ourselves from the heart. We stop speaking our truth, we sacrifice what we need to maintain harmony and over time, passion dulls and distance grows.
In the non-judgemental and non-fearful state of MDMA we receive the opportunity to speak fearless from our heart and of our needs and we can listen to our partners without judgement. With the help of Aluna's guidance your connection deepens again and you will find a whole new dimension to your love.
