Psychedelic Therapy for Codependency
“In romantic love, you fall in love with someone and you say ‘I am in love with him’ or ‘I am in love with her’ meaning that person is my connection to the place in myself where I am love for I can’t get there by myself. I need you. I am in love with you. Because when I come near you I feel that place in myself and I don’t feel it unless I’m around you; I am in love with you.” – Ram Dass
Codependency is a form of addiction to people in our lives, where each reinforces the limited, separate, and often painful aspects of our identity. Just like someone struggling with substance addiction, someone in a codependent relationship feels like they cannot live without the other, while the other in the relationship harbors resentment but is likewise dependent on the feeling of being needed. And while it happens often in romantic relationships, we can have codependent relationships with family, friends, and coworkers as well.
As it is with substance addictions, the persons involved in codependency are using each other as conduits to places within themselves where they are love and they are loved. Because this is not reconciled internally and spiritually, it results in pain and disappointment. There is no substitute for loving ourselves.
How Psychedelic Therapy Can Help Heal Codependency
Psychedelic-assisted therapy can be a powerful medium for finding that place in oneself where one is love and one is loved. Through careful guidance through the psychedelic space, we can find those instances in our lives or our birth in which we cut ourselves off from the eternal and powerful source of love within.
