Do You Sabotage Your Best Efforts to Become Present, Happy, and Connected?

Take meditation, for instance:

Is sitting down on a cushion for ten minutes really the hard part?

Or is it pushing through the inner resistance, just so you can actually sit down on the cushion and start meditating?

The reason you continue to sabotage your own efforts is that you have been conditioned to avoid pain, failure, and discomfort.

This made sense for our prehistoric ancestors continually trying to outrun saber-toothed tigers for fear of being eaten. But it doesn’t make sense for you any human living in today’s Western world.

In fact, productively dealing with this fear and pain is actually much easier than you think.

Consider this…

What If You Could Re-wire Your Entire Self To Reject Mediocrity – And Automatically Choose Transformational Growth Instead?

What separates those who have achieved “Superhuman” status from the rest of the world?

It’s their programming.

High-performers have “re-wired” their programming to stay centered, grounded, and “in the zone” even when facing difficult, fear-inducing circumstances.

This ability to act with insight and creativity in the face of fear and discomfort cultivates unwavering inner confidence.

This inner confidence is what gets high-performers up in the morning when others sleep. It’s what motivates them to keep trying when others give up. It’s what empowers them to achieve the impossible – when others only dream of it.

Whether for performance enhancement, mood improvement, or simply upgrading your overall well-being, our “Becoming Superhuman” program will help you take control of your life once again.

By microdosing responsibly and intentionally, you will develop the ability to face obstacles head-on, fully stepping into your superhuman potential.

But don’t just take my word for it…

Paul Austin | Founder, CEO | The Third Wave

As the Founder & CEO of The Third Wave, my mission is to help you “Become Superhuman” through the responsible and intentional use of psychedelic substances. My work with microdosing has been featured in Rolling Stone, Business Insider, and WebMD. In fact, the impact of microdosing was so profound on his life that I wanted to help others understand how microdosing could be used as a tool for accelerated growth and self-understanding.

However, just like you, I once struggled to overcome the daily resistance of stepping into my best self.

In fact…

No Matter What I Did, No Matter What I Tried, It Felt Nearly Impossible To Get Out Of My Rut

The date is June 2015, and my path towards becoming a successful entrepreneur was floundering.

At this point in time, I felt stuck in a place of mediocrity, with a fluctuating mood and less than ideal work performance. Life felt dull, gray even, and I had used up all my best options to really “kickstart” my life in the right direction.

I kept wondering: what lies beyond my feelings of fear, doubt, and laziness? And how do I break out of the mindset that has held me back for so long?

After trying almost every other option available, I was desperate for anything that would work. And then I found microdosing.

After Microdosing With LSD Two Times Per Week – For Seven Months – My Life Completely Transformed

Once I learned how to microdose in an optimal way, the results were remarkable:

#1: Quieting of the monkey mind, making it much easier to cultivate presence

This is referred to as “Mushin” in Zen Buddhism, and literally means “the mind without mind.” It is pure mental clarity, creating an incredible sense of ease in life.

#2: More confidence and energy in my professional pursuits

Because microdosing helped me to cultivate presence throughout the day, I became much more confident and energetic in my professional pursuits.

Usually, I stifled my creative energy because of fear of judgment. With microdosing, it became easy to create, eliminating the resistance and non-stop questioning about whether or not my work was “good enough.”

#3: More connection and play with others, eliminating my social anxiety

Usually, I’d be stuck inside my head when socializing with others. However, when microdosing, my anxiety disappeared, making it super easy to connect with total strangers.

While microdosing definitely helped me to remain present, improve my performance, and eliminate social anxiety, there was still one core lesson I took away from my entire microdosing experience.

Although It May Sound Like It, Microdosing Is Definitely Not A Magic Pill

Concrete, sustainable change requires accountability, community, and commitment to a higher purpose and vision.

When I microdosed, taking the substance was only the first step. Sure, microdosing made me more aware of the specific changes to make in my life, but it didn’t actually do the work for me. It was 100% my responsibility to listen and take the necessary steps to make actual changes.

Here’s the thing: There are too many people who microdose that does it incorrectly, leading to sub-optimal results and no actual change in their mood and well-being. If you want to see real concrete results from microdosing, it is critical to have the necessary support and guidance on your journey.

Are you ready to experience the “transformational shift” that happens from microdosing?

Science Has Proven the Benefits of Microdosing

That’s right! It’s not just me who has experienced the benefits of microdosing. Science has now proven that microdosing is a critical modality in helping you become “unstuck” on your path towards greater well-being and ease in life.

With the help of microdosing, what used to be big, monstrous, and intimidating now feels as easy as putting on your favorite pair of pants in the morning. Outside of my own personal story, there are thousands of people who have experienced substantial benefits from microdosing.

Again..don’t just take my word for it. Here is what recent research says about the benefits people experience while microdosing:

  • Improved Mood – Peacefulness, overall well-being, calmness, happiness, and a reduction in the symptoms of depression. It also includes more emotional connection, a general sense of optimism, and an improved outlook on life.
  • Improved Focus – Covers skill sets like the ability to focus or concentrate and enhanced self-awareness.
  • Creativity – Aside from a general sense of improved creativity, this also includes behaviors such as being more open, enhanced curiosity, ability to shift perspectives, and divergent thinking.
  • Self-Efficacy – This applies to such behaviors as ambition, self-motivation, self-confidence, and a sense of agency. It also relates to improved mental health, including increased introspection, the practice of meditation, and other aspects of behaviors tied to self-care.
  • Improved Energy – In this case, “energy” refers to things like mental stimulation, wakefulness, and alertness.
  • Social Benefits – Outside of more engagement with others, this category also includes more empathy, a greater sense of connection, and more extroversion.
  • Cognitive Benefits – When microdosing, the user experience heightened mental clarity, better memory recall, and an improvement in problem-solving ability.
  • Reduced Anxiety – This applies to a reduction in both general and social anxiety.
  • Physiological Enhancement – Includes enhanced visual acuity, cardio endurance, reduction of migraines and headaches, and higher quality of sleep.

Science is now confirming what we have known for years: when microdosing is done with intention and professional guidance, the results are profound.

As Microdosing becomes more popular by the day, there is a need for well-researched, easy to understand, and detailed guidelines for those who want to get the most out of their new practice. I found The Third Wave’s Microdosing course to be all this and more. I was encouraged not only by the incredible level of support and information it provided, but also by the community in their online forums. If you’re interested how Microdosing can benefit you, just starting out, or even if you’re already experienced – I would very much recommend this excellent course.

The community is a priceless resource with the added benefit of administrators who oversee the community to aid in correct information and harm reduction. They are extremely knowledgeable and supportive in helping members have safe positive experiences.

I had many questions about microdosing to remain safe and set myself up for a successful experience. Then I found The Third Wave and learned about their Microdosing Course and online community. I took a leap of faith, and glad I did. The course is exceptionally professional and thorough as well as indexed for future reference (which I use a lot). It answered all my questions and many others I didn’t know I even had. If you’re looking for a source for growth and/or healing beyond the conventional … this is a great place to venture!

The part of the course that really inspired me was optimizing the microdosing protocol. I find the idea of using microdosing to cultivate intention very exciting! It has helped me to more fully understand the experience and use it as a tool to focus my thoughts and actions.

Melissa P.

The microdosing course is full of pertinent information. It has content which any reader can relate to whether you’re an addict, an alcoholic or someone suffering from depression or other mental or spiritual ailments. Reading the course gave me hope, a new way from what I’ve read and researched before. After completing the course, I was welcomed into a forum which is a community of individuals who want more for their lives and to better themselves as beings.

Thank you, Third Wave, for being a part of my transformation. Thank you for connecting me to others with similar paths of self-exploration. Thank you for the communication platform that has given me a sense of belonging. I now feel empowered to take responsibility for my life!
