I find it fascinating that since the beginning of documented time, we are the first generation of cannabis users that seem to have completely forgotten about the spiritual properties of the plant.
Now that cannabis is legal and recreationally available like booze, we have become unconscious to the hugely profound potential of this little weed. (Although, as a culture, we seem to be becoming more unconscious to a lot of things lately – more on that another day.)
I started banging on my drum about the fact that cannabis is spiritual earlier this year. I had several HUGE spiritual encounters with cannabis in my system, just meditating in my room by myself, and once I started to see that this was a repeatable and easy way uncover depth within my being, I wanted to share it with as many people as I could.
I have learned that in order to have a truly spiritually rich life, whatever that looks like for each individual, one must be able to navigate inward and through the layers of the human emotions. As humans, we all struggle. We all have pain. We all carry heaviness and suffering and often times, we don’t even realize we are carrying it.
When you sit still with cannabis in your system and you invite the cannabis to reveal to you what lies under your immediate awareness, the plant medicine will always bring to light what is there.
As the sun does not only shine on pretty things, sometimes the cannabis can reveal things inside of us that are unpleasant or uncomfortable. But those things are just crying out for your attention. To be seen, felt and ultimately released. You can’t heal what you refuse to look at. Cannabis is like a torch to the unseen and sometimes unfelt parts of you.
As I mentioned before, meditating with cannabis in my system facilitated multiple encounters with the Divine. An overwhelming experience, impossible to describe in words, that left me weeping on the floor as my entire being was flooded with unconditional love and acceptance. These emotions were happening inside my body, but they were emotions for me from my Creator.
To feel that type of love and know it is how the entire Universe looks at me, shifted everything inside me. Visions, insights and knowings more aligned to a psychedelic experience than simple cannabis, became pivotal moments that have built the foundation of my entire life.
Using cannabis in a spiritual practice has led me to understand energy in a way I never had before. It has led me to understand myself and my emotions in ways I never had before and has shifted the way I view the plant, and the world entirely.
I highly recommend you give it a try.
This is not religion. This is not dogma, theology or doctrine. This is leveraging the power of plant medicine for emotional wellness and spiritual growth.
Get high. Sit still. Talk to God.
Listen. Feel. Repeat.
I love you.
I recorded a cannabis meditation that you can try in the safety and comfort of your own home. Go to www.cannabisisspiritual.com to download and give it a try for yourself. I will instruct you to consume cannabis as part of the meditation or you can have some before you begin. Create a warm and safe environment where you wont be disturbed. Then do it again and again. And again. Invite Spirit into your experience. Feel your fucking feelings.
Wake up and heal.
