“New Horizons in Parenting: How Microdosing Could Nurture a More Loving and Centered Home”

By Katie Gray, Member and contributor to The Church of Sacred Synthesis

Microdosing has been becoming more popular as the collective attitude towards psychedelics shifts from being viewed as recreational and seen more as a tool for mental health treatment and spiritual expansion. At such a low dose, microdosing allows you to experience the benefits of a sacrament such as enhanced mental clarity, emotional balance, and creativity without impairing your functionality. This is particularly good news for individuals who might not be ready for the impact and processing a deep journey may require. 

There are countless demographics of people who can benefit from microdosing, but on this special weekend, this article takes a closer focus on mothers. Motherhood demands immense mental resilience and emotional depth. Nurturing mental health is key to effective parenting. Microdosing is primarily explored for its potential to enhance cognitive and emotional well-being. When considering mothers, or parents in general, who are continuously adapting to the demands and stresses of parenting, microdosing might offer several benefits that can help them become more effective at nurturing and managing their households. Here’s how:

1. Enhancement of Emotional Regulation:

Studies suggest that microdosing can aid in emotional balance and stability. For a mother, improved emotional regulation can mean fewer reactive responses and more measured, thoughtful interactions with their children. This can contribute to a more harmonious and supportive family environment, where children feel more secure and understood.

2. Boost in Mental Clarity and Focus:

Parenting requires multitasking and constant decision-making. Microdosing has been reported to enhance mental clarity and focus, which can help a mother manage the daily logistics of parenting more efficiently. Being mentally clear can also contribute to better organization and planning, reducing the stress that comes from feeling overwhelmed and unprepared.

3. Increased Patience and Openness:

The minor shifts in perspective brought on by microdosing can increase patience and empathy, crucial traits for effective parenting. An enhanced sense of connection to one’s surroundings and a deeper understanding of different perspectives can help mothers connect with their children, particularly when navigating conflicts or challenges.

4. Stress Reduction:

Managing a household and the needs of children can be a significant source of stress. Microdosing may aid in reducing stress levels, thereby improving a mother’s overall health and her ability to engage positively with her family. Lower stress levels can also reduce the risk of burnout and emotional fatigue, common issues faced by parents, especially those managing households single-handedly.

5. Improvement in Mood and Overall Well-being:

A brighter mood and a general sense of well-being can emerge from regular microdosing. For mothers, being in a consistently positive mood can tremendously impact the family’s atmosphere, making daily interactions more pleasant and joyful. This positive environment supports children’s mental and emotional development.

6. Deepening of Creative Thinking:

Parenting often requires creative solutions and approaches. Microdosing can enhance creative thinking, allowing mothers to solve problems efficiently and make family time more engaging and enjoyable by thinking of new and exciting activities.

7. Increased Energy Levels:

The demands of parenting can be physically exhausting. Some who microdose report higher energy levels, which can be particularly beneficial for parents who need to balance numerous responsibilities.

Most of the women on our church team are mothers and I had an opportunity to ask for their insight on how microdosing has impacted their experience as parents. Jenna Lake responded, “Probably the biggest positive thing that I’ve seen in my life is I’m able to be more present and what does that mean in terms of being a mother is that I am… not distracted. I can actually appreciate the time that I’m spending with my children instead of being physically there and yet mentally in twelve other places having stress, having anxiety, worrying about this and that. When my kids were younger that’s usually how it was. I was there for them physically but I couldn’t get out of that mental head space and really enjoy the moment. So what this does and what microdosing specifically has done is it takes you out of the head space and puts you into the heart space and when you’re in the heart space, you can facilitate connection. Connection to yourself first, you can actually start to feel your emotions instead of trying to work things out in your head. You’re in your heart and when you’re in your heart you can actually begin to connect to your children.” 

Carla Romero shared her heartfelt experience about microdosing with our sacrament specifically. “You know that I believe when it comes to being a mother for me it’s always about setting an example. It’s setting my kids up to know and to see the magic that’s all around them and I do believe that…or I know that the sacrament has um, just like it does when you’re taking it, it’s such a real-time sort-of integration that….even when you don’t take the sacrament, you just see the magic in life a lot better and therefore they sort-of see it.  I show them and we talk about it, nature and all the things that are just so true and basic. It allows me to become a better person so I can be a better example.”

My personal experience as a mother has been profound and intense. Both my children are special needs. My son has autism and is incredibly creative and brilliant. My daughter’s brain development was stunted in utero and she has been medically complex since birth, unable to move or cognativly engage in any easy way. Motherhood for me was medical care, scheduling nurses, appointments, and hospital stays. I was a care manager and each day was a check list that needed to get done rather than be experienced. I discovered microdosing about a year after my divorce and it completely changed the game for me. It made me aware of all the thought loops I would play in the background of my day. I became able to observe them rather than react to them. I felt so much more present and the circumstances around me didn’t feel as burdensome or overwhelming. I could appreciate the little things more and see what was important. Between microdosing and hapé use, I was able to come off of my anxiety meds completely without feeling overwhelmed by life. I felt like I was remembering to be a mother more and not just the coordinator. My life changed completely after that. I’m forever grateful for what microdosing did for me and the doorways it opened to possibilities I never could have imagined.

I believe motherhood is a particularly challenging trial of life. It’s very easy to judge ourselves and to feel judged by others when you’re a mom. It can make every decision feel pressured and like Jenna mentioned, keep you trapped in the head space thinking about doing what’s best for your child and managing the household instead of being present. In the evolving landscape of modern psychology, mothers today have access to a broader spectrum of tools and insights than ever before, empowering them to overcome challenges and embrace their roles with renewed vigor and wisdom. Microdosing emerges as one of the intriguing frontiers in this regard—offering a potential pathway to enhanced mental clarity, emotional balance, and increased empathy, all of which contribute to more effective and loving parenting. As we explore these innovative approaches, it is essential that they are accompanied by informed guidance and a thoughtful understanding of both the potential benefits and the responsibilities they entail. Ultimately, the goal remains steadfast: to support mothers in nurturing not only their children but also themselves, fostering familial environments where love, understanding, and well-being can flourish. This Mother’s Day, let us acknowledge and celebrate the brave, continuous journey of motherhood, supported both by age-old wisdom and the promising advances of modern psychology.
