Listen To Episode 285 As Luke Storey Uncovers:
His inner child and how he's able to connect with it so that it's present in every single thing that he does.
How he's become a voice on not only sobriety but on how to live your life on your own terms.
Growing up in northern California during the 1970s and 80s and how that impacted his environment.
Negative emotions he felt as a young adolescent and how life experiences, plant medicine such as marijuana, and focusing on what he liked about himself helped him through those moments.
Life at Rocky Mountain Academy, a CEDU emotional growth boarding school, the experimental therapy practices they were known for, and the how it somewhat helped him have a set of moral codes, build his character, open up about traumatic experiences, and begin to learn about spirituality.
How to know it's time to move on from an obsession when the consequences outweigh any benefits that were ever present.
His methods of shortening the cycles of re-commitment so that people eventually just become committed to not giving into their addiction.

Connecting with yourself to create a positive life and environment for you to thrive in.
Concept of the spiritual malady and being disconnected from yourself, others, and a higher power.

Power Quotes From The Show'If you're truly in that higher consciousness state all of the time, it's would be difficult to function in your human body. That's where the plant medicines come in to help us get a glimpse of what's on the other side' - @MrLukeStoreyClick To Tweet
“After observing paths of addiction including my own, the only way out is a spiritual way. Self-help doesn't really do it, you need God help; whatever that looks like for you. You can call it however you want and receive it from any system. If I had a friend that came to me for help, I would honestly send them to the appropriate 12-Step meeting down the street because it's a program that's built not to fail.” – Luke Storey
Higher Consciousness Through Plant Medicine
“Our capacity for joy, ecstasy, a connection to God, and consciousness is already high but being in a human body with a personality, an ego, inner beliefs, and instincts keeps us from permanently accessing that. However, if you're truly in that higher consciousness state all of the time, it would be difficult to function back in your meat suit. That's where the plant medicines and peak experiences come in to help us get a glimpse of what's on the other side.” – Luke Storey
