Psychoactive Plants / Auras & Color Therapy

About the show

Medicine hunter Chris Kilham is referred to by CNN as the Indiana Jones of Natural Medicine. In the first half, he talked about plants and herbs that enhance connection with the spirit world and healing. Working with companies to develop and popularize traditional plant-based food and medicinal products, he has traveled to such exotic locations as the Amazon, Congo, and Siberia. While researching kava on the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific during the 1990s, he learned that the plant provides a sense of tranquility and relaxation. Its popularity has spread in the ensuing years-- there are many kava bars in the US now-- you might see patrons speaking softly as one of the effects of the plant is that hearing becomes more acute, he noted.

He described a region in Siberia, where cannabis was grown everywhere, and spoke about ayahuasca, first used by shamans in the Amazon. The psychoactive concoction is derived by mixing two plants, one of which activates the DMT in the other. It offers intensely transformational experiences, he reported, including remarkable healing visions and realizations. Kilham also detailed some of the dangers that have arisen on his travels, including disease, pirates, and transportation mishaps, as well as many of the bizarre food and drinks he's partaken. These include frog blender drinks, fried scorpions, snake liquor, and grubs.


Psychic, author, and cosmic coach, Dougall Fraser utilizes color therapy, clairvoyance, intuition, and practical advice to help people assess and attain their goals. In the latter half, he discussed each color's unique spiritual and functional qualities, including its shadow sides. There are no bad colors, he explained, as each has different strengths. Fraser said he's able to see a person's aura which he equates with the soul, and the different colors that manifest in the aura guide his readings. Reading auras is a learned skill, he added, and he teaches workshops in the technique.

The traits he associated with various colors include: emotions (red), creativity (green), balance (orange), independence (gold), and leadership (purple). If someone is ill, their aura may be dimmed out indicating a lack of energy, he explained, or have an opaque quality in the case of something like migraines. A person is not stuck with their given aura, he revealed, and they can redefine themselves by conducting meditative exercises to key in on different aspects of their personality. For instance, concentrating on purple hues can help someone to be more outgoing, he suggested. During the last hour, he gave readings to callers, sharing what he saw in their auras and present situations.
