Check Out Tristan Victor Esquivez Flota’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tristan Victor Esquivez Flota.

Hi Tristan Victor, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’m currently spearheading a creative collective personal development brand called STAYRIZEN focused on the merging of psychedelic medicines and self-help techniques. I’m preparing the debut of our podcast called The Portalcast that brings together experts, thought leaders, explorers and advocates together to support the exploration of psychedelics medicines for personal and spiritual growth. I started all this after facing severe anxiety and depressive episodes in search for purpose, wellness and relief. I was dependent on medication to remedy my daily migraines I was experiencing and eventually after a few panic attacks decided to explore alternative medicine and spiritual practices. I grew up in an untraditional Mexican household and studied under the catholic faith. I attended public school and was raised with both my parents including my sister. As I deepened my personal studies, I left the catholic religion and embarked on my own spiritual journey. I quit my corporate job working at a financial institution at 19. I switched my college major from business to philosophy and received my AA. I began working with plant medicines to support my personal healing and development. I then started my own coaching and consulting business obtaining my ICF certified health and life coaching training. Since then, I’ve been focused on my mission to provide the tools and perspective to support others in their personal healing, search for purpose and integration from plant medicines.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” – Joseph Campbell

With the conditioning and social propaganda framing an idea of who we all “should be” when it comes to success, beauty and happiness the quest to my authenticity has been a journey of many struggles and tribulations. The mental attitude shift has been the most challenging. Working through limiting beliefs from my culture and family of who I should be and what I should do provided opportunities to rise above the doubt, fear and worry to deepen the faith in myself. My anxiety proved to be my greatest teacher as it offered me lessons of overthinking, imbalances, and a misuse of my imagination. Depressive episodes became phases of growth as they taught me the value of association, daily habits and connecting with nature. Breakups eventually became breakthroughs that taught me the importance of forgiveness, compassion, empathy and self-care. Plant medicines offered me remembrance of the connectivity I share with all beings and the simplicity of life. Entrepreneurship has and is a path for righteousness as it offers me the privilege to become who I am and share my most authentic self through my art and work.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m currently a professional life coach specializing in holistic wellness and integration. I support individuals in developing structure, purpose and meaning in their lives. I work with integrating spiritual and psychedelic experiences into practical methods of transformation. As a creative artist and podcast host, I curate dialogue and conversation in support of offering education and awareness around important topics. I utilize my gift as a writer and lyricist into my music creating songs that offer perspective and storytelling. I’m most proud of the clients I’ve worked with and the transformational results they’ve had in my programs. My story, creative expression and ability to listen and hold space is what sets me apart from other coaches. My authenticity and ability to feel deeply into my own emotions and others is what makes my music and podcast unique.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
During this time of change, it offers us the opportunity to revisit our own intentions for what we are searching for in life and what offers us meaning and fulfillment. With the psychedelic renaissance rising and entrepreneurship becoming more mainstream the opportunity to create the life that you desire is within your fingertips. I believe now more than ever, we need more leaders and courageous artists to rise and share their most authentic truths to inspire and pave the way for the new generation rising.
