In this mega-post, I will share insights and understandings gathered via experience, intuitive study, reading, research, and conversations with mentors to present a perspective I have not necessarily seen or heard shared much, especially among my Millennial peers. It can be assumed that I leverage the tool only in states where legislation allows. So should you. All thoughts presented are mine, so please take what resonates and leave the rest!
In my estimation, cannabis is the most transformative and transcendent natural gift this world has to offer, especially when it comes to truth seeking, healing, and reaching toward spiritual enlightenment.
Simply put, cannabis propels and ignites more intimate levels of awakening. It helps reveal deeper dimensions of self.
That is precisely why it was inserted into this planetary construct in the first place.
INTRODUCTION: A PLANT-SPIRIT ALLY
One of the most gracious gifts of this globe is its green pharmacy.
Nature is full of homeopathic healers, but cannabis is its premier catalyst to aid us in accessing higher levels of consciousness within this matrix illusion.
Weed takes you out of your mind, out of the grind, and out of time. Ironically, sadly, almost no one outside of the awakening community is consciously leveraging the plant in this way, for this purpose.
Growing up, my assumptions about what weed was and how it ought to be used was formed as a result of watching my stoner peers in high school come back after lunch break completely out of it or seemingly spaced-out at a party. I never judged, but I simply never felt like it was for me, so never really had any inclination to try.
I did take edibles once (on our senior trip to Washington, D.C., no less…), and to this day, I’m pretty sure the cookies I had were laced with LSD or something because I was legitimately hallucinating and truly thought I was dying.
After that, I went about 8 years without desire to dabble.
Like the unconditionally-compassionate consciousness it is, cannabis extended an invitation to me again in 2018 as I began a profound awakening into higher consciousness.
This time, I discovered the true purpose and potential presented by pot.
Once I was able to remove moderate conditioning and programming about what weed was and did — and once I realized that almost no one around me seemed to really know what this tool could enable or provide — I re-learned and re-tried as I gently found a working relationship with her that felt good and right for me.
But why does using weed in the “right” way matter? Well, it does and it doesn’t. We can choose to use the plant however we wish, that is each of our rights.
However, when understood — when used with reverence, respect, and love from a place of inner-connectedness, desire, and intent — the cannabis spirit can more readily reveal its indwelling essence to us, catapulting us to heights yet unseen and unknown.
With potential to immerse you within a new yet familiar realm of ephemeral ecstacy and expansive euphoria, it can be the catalyst that reminds us who we are.
With weed, we can break down barriers of separation as we move toward a new 5D Earth surrounded by beings who share a common recognition of the unity which connects them all. Cannabis is one of the few virtually harmless, most widely-available, most easily-attainable tools that can help do just that.
THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF CANNABIS
Any chunk of consciousness which decides to take incarnations within the material realm and enter into a strain of cannabis is slightly more advanced than its other 1st Density counterparts who are entering into other kinds of more “energetically neutral” plants — grass, leaves, or trees — for incarnations.
The upper 1st Density consciousness which imbues the cannabis plant is therefore slightly further along in its evolutionary path than that which is working within more basic natural elements.
I think consciousness imbuing a given marijuana plant is excited to soon graduate to 2nd Density and is eager to express this excitement as it enters our bodies. This personality is generally reflected outwardly by the individuals who use weed.
Its energy is eclectic, creative, brave, bold, artistic, expressive, inspired, visionary, unconventional, and unorthodox. It inspires us to go against the status quo, to uncover underlying, thematic storylines of our life, to break free, to see the beauty in the mundane, and to kindly wake the fuck up.
That is exactly what it’s doing through us.
Perhaps once the cannabis consciousness makes its energetic transition after having been consumed by a human, it will go on to take a lifetime or two within an even more psychoactive plant like ayahuasca or a psilocybin mushroom before it graduates and ascends to the next level of the game — 2nd Density life!
There is an extremely important insight here which shouldn’t be glazed over — the plant is giving its life for us. It dies when we burn it, eat it, drink it, and experience its grace within our bodies.
However, when used consciously and with awareness, you can also offer something of extreme value for the plant — or the consciousness which enlivens it, to be more exact.
While the vibes of the vine simultaneously energize and relax you into a heightened, condensed mindfulness meditation, you are also momentarily giving it the gift of merging with your consciousness as it boards your roller coaster. It gets to merge with you as it enters into a 3rd Density vehicle to, as its dying gift, see, feel, and experience the thrill of perceiving through the awareness of an Earth human.
With Cannabis, we are effectively taking in more consciousness.
This is why we feel more alive when we’re high; this is why we feel more electrified, more awake and aware.
LIGHT BODY ACTIVATION
In addition, cannabis also activates the light body and stimulates the autonomic nervous system.
Cannabis allows you to, for a time, open up to receive and hold greater amounts of God-Source energy within your being.
I take my sessions very seriously — while also remaining light and relaxed — knowing that I am opening up a direct line of communication with our Universal Consciousness and bringing my 3D awareness to communion with my Source self.
I know deep revelations and insights are likely imminent, and I move into neutrality as I allow my higher guidance to steer the direction of my thoughts as they become incredibly abstract and pulled apart for exploration and analysis.
|I find it helpful, in lieu of keeping a mental ledger of your epiphanies and insights acquired (which is fine and sometimes best), to always keep a notebook handy to jot down whatever comes in. Take momentary breaks when you’re guided, writing or drawing just enough to jog your memory later. Then dive back in.|
How you use and integrate and incorporate whatever knowledge comes in is a reflection of your level of consciousness.
At the risk of sounding blunt, much like NZT in the movie Limitless, weed works better the smarter (and more awake) you already are.
The good news is you can always work on boosting these faculties! Life is a continuous journey of expansion; weed both honors the work you’ve already done but also reveals an inner knowing about where further polishing may be warranted.
It levels you up while showing you the brutal truth of everything.
Weed can eliminate confusion and offer resolution — often, everything just becomes clear and obvious.
Paradoxically, you usually can’t easily articulate or verbalize the multi-faceted downloads that shower your awareness when you’re immersed within a high.
When high, you can absorb data and energy, leaning into imprints and expressions and ideas and metaphysical concepts floating around in the ether much too complex for words.
Cannabis helps you touch your soul by feeling into the deep wisdom that lies there. No words can adequately symbolize most of what we find when we touch our soul.
Empaths will feel everything and intuitive empaths will both feel and know everything. You may feel every ounce of pain of another as if it were your own. You may cry at seemingly trivial things because you see to the core of their beauty, or pain.
When high, the vessel becomes an energy absorber.
Weed displaces our focal point of awareness. It’s as though the mind is allowed to go into a daydream while the physical body remains on autopilot in the physical. If in our sober state 90% of our awareness is focused on the physical world and 10% stationed at the higher immaterial mental planes, the inverse is true with a good usage of the herb.
There is nothing like living in the realm of ideas for a few hours.
If I can get out of my mind, I can forget I am in a body and be reminded of my true nature as formless awareness. A good sativa strain can offer a gentle numbing of the body if you remain still, and then catapult your consciousness to another ‘place’ — the dimension of thought.
When I visit that dimension, I realize literally no time has gone by since I’ve last been there… time is not real. In the mental realm, I am reminded of my true form but can also give gratitude for my temporary humanness, trusting that I can return to my body whenever I wish.
I don’t feel as solid or physical when high, either. Instead of a singular flesh body, I feel like I’m comprised of a million vibrating atoms, all rumbling in harmony with each wave that ripples through my body… I feel like a spirit. I become a spirit. I am spiritual!
Cannabis invites us closer to our true essence as spirit by offering a small reminder of what it feels like to be formless consciousness.
If I do go out dancing or to a bar with friends (requiring a different mental preparedness than staying in to do inner work), it’s like being surrounded by a bunch of unique energies all co-mingling together in harmony.
With a good high, I begin to perceive people more as unique energetic signatures all coming in and out of my awareness, back and forth, like a dream. This allows me to shed all illusory 3D labels and sink deeply into the moment… just FEELING into the essence of other consciousnesses to the depths of their soul.
For me, it is actually easier to interact with people because the ego mask is off and it’s just pure love — the energy I want to project when interacting with others.
Whether in our out, I can feel musical waves rippling through the cells of my body. My psychic perception is amplified ten-fold and telepathy goes into another gear. I can feel thoughts of others not even in my vicinity and my claircognitive capabilities are amplified.
You will see through layers of illusions of friends and family, good or bad. You will feel into what someone means, feels, or doesn’t even know themselves by what they’re saying. Body language and non-verbal communication becomes more powerful than verbal.
GLITCHING THE MATRIX
With an influx of higher energies overcoming you, cannabis dissipates the Veil of Forgetting and Veil of Unknowing, helping you see through the matrix itself.
Weed helps you glitch the virtual reality.
For instance, you may be able to perceive “The Force” as a light purple haze, or distinctly make out binary code that lines the sky with a relaxed gaze. These are just two examples but this will work differently for everyone.
|Magical, mystical, serendipitous content within the matrix becomes heightened during a cannabis session; it’s as if the intensity of the game is essentially turned up. You are uplifted to an even higher, more complex — yet simultaneously more beautiful, more glorious — dimension of gaming within the simulation. |
In this way, cannabis will work best for those who feel guided to challenge themselves by temporarily operating on a more complex plane of existence where mental processing will be slowed yet data flow will come quicker.
Even though you’ll still be on the Earth plane, understand that when you get high, you’re cranking up the frequency of your gaming avatar and you are entering into a higher level of consciousness.
You can also see the world from a different angle, an altered perspective. The amount of creative genius that must have went into constructing this realm is mind-blowing, and pot helps tap into the mind of our higher-order consciousnesses to merge with the frequency of their agenda.
The Earth game is incredibly intricate with hidden, occult clues sprinkled throughout its natural designs — often in plain sight — to subtly remind us of deeper truths about the game. Weed helps you re-discover these treasures.
Universal wisdom and esoteric truths of creation can more readily bleed through.
AN ABUNDANT MEDICINAL HERB
The healing properties of the plant put it into a league of its own.
For many who have awakened from cultural dogma and can view the plant as a medicine and not some kind of “drug” or forbidden fruit or fun but mostly ineffectual party favor, marijuana serves as the ultimate cure-all, the most astronomically, awe-inspiring antidote, the right remedy for any variation of any ailment, condition, or illness — mental, emotional, physical, and especially spiritual.
It is better than the best therapy, more healing than the majority of medications, especially for chronic conditions, more expansive than any book or course or class.
Unveiling Subconscious Fears & Illusions
Weed helps us integrate learned lessons and acquired experiences across all touch-points of life.
Pot is not a gateway “drug” but it is the gateway to the formless dimension within, and subtly unveils layers of illusions that we all hold.
Weed temporarily suspends, or, with time, helps us eventually surface and eliminate buried, residual fear-based vibrations like anger, rage, disgust, grudges, sadness, melancholy, annoyance, need, want, desire, embarrassment, loneliness, sadness, feelings of isolation or depression or suppression or thousands of other thoughts or emotions that don’t serve.
That’s what happens when you ascend above separation consciousness and beyond victim consciousness.
Infinitely more importantly, though, pot subtly shows you the underlying subconscious stories and psychic patterns behind beliefs — revealing circumstances, events, instances, ideas, paradigms, connections, causations, and correlations normally hidden to the monkey mind, floating just below the surface of our waking awareness.
Weed serves as binoculars into the subconscious.
I have spent hours simply marveling at the magic and music and miracle of it all, opening to insights and information I’d never previously been privvy to, now flooding my awareness like a tidal wave. I’ve spent a half hour just sitting there, unraveling the subconscious, unconscious reasons underlying seemingly menial cultural norms and stories. You’ll find yourself in deep exploration of concepts you never even considered before.
At its core, it is a clarifying agent that operates on both the brain and the consciousness simultaneously.
As it dissolves mental paradigms about who we think we are, the herb is a highly effective truth serum, and will inevitably bring up repressed fears we didn’t even know we had buried.
As many have experienced, weed can also, from time to time, surprise us with something unexpected, even frightening. Paranoia and panic can be debilitating when you’re high, but only until you realize that the spiritual mechanism of the plant was designed to strengthen your consciousness while unearthing existing fears. Cannabis shows you whatever it is you need to see, feel, or know regardless of whether you feel ready. Get ready before you dive in and trust you won’t need to go to the ER — you’re not dying.
Pot tends to align you with its vibration. If you’re sad, you may feel sadder, but if you’re happy you may feel even better.
The paranoia thing still gets me in its grips… and, somehow, no two highs are ever quite alike. In a way, you never know what you’re about to be in for. I think that’s why weed’s unique, transcendent vibrations may not be for everyone, and why you have to be selective when deciding when is the right time to use the plant.
Using Cannabis for Bodily Healing
Almost exclusively, I leverage weed to polish and refine my consciousness — to do deep inner work. I engage in subconscious self-study with this stimulant. I also use it to propel quickened bodily healing.
Any physical issue is intimately intertwined with complex, psycho-spiritual, energetic, and emotional causes based on themes and stories we hold; with work and patience, the plant can help illuminate these as it guides you from one ‘AHA moment‘ or epiphany to the next.
Intention is so crucial when meeting the plant’s energy, especially when healing of the vessel is one of your goals.
It’s as though the consciousness of the plant can hear our innermost thoughts, desires, and wishes, then respond in kind by very tenderly overtaking the flow of chi throughout the body and showing us where attention is needed.
For me, this is combined with very subtle spasms and minuscule involuntary muscular movement while deep knowings are simultaneously revealed within.
It can also open the door for higher-dimensional beings to enter your body if your intention and state of mind allows. I call this magical phenomenon of cosmic healing enabled and accelerated by cannabis etheric surgery.
The elegant, electric, expansive energies of weed work in and on our organism across a number of levels — not just physical, but also mental, emotional, spiritual, and sexual.
WORKING WITH EGO DISSOLUTION
Perhaps the most wonderful of all the aspects of the plant is the ego-dissolving qualities it consistently supplies. In non-thought, without ego, cannabis opens your third eye.
Weed magnifies the experiencing of the present moment by subtly removing the perception of time and space.
Cannabis intensifies the experiencing of the NOW moment while allowing us to imagine the future and use circumstances of our past to inner-stand the NOW. It is not uncommon to drift into a momentary forgetfulness of where you are, geographically, physically, with a good high.
Often the perception of time becomes skewed or disintegrates totally, which can be scary but incredibly relaxing once accepted. Without a sense of time, space, or self, the ego is basically gone or at least drastically diminished.
Cannabis takes us out of linear time and into non-linear thought.
Liminal space can feel weird when we’re so used to operating in rational thought. But it’s in liminal space that the cumulative themes of your life can be broadened and seen.
You can see how life’s mini-stories or chance encounters with certain people actually played a vital part in the tapestry of your evolving storyline.
As a loving ally, the plant is a perfect partner — making everything better.
It serves as a truth serum, a pineal popper, and healing helper.
Marijuana teleports you to higher levels of awakening and allows you to peek behind the curtain of this dream-world illusion.
In my view, cannabis can be a key to doing legitimate inner work and self mastery study for serious truth seekers.
As a final note, cannabis is an ally… it will never do the work for you. Nothing or no one else can. At the end of the day, it’s always all about you… how you choose to nurture your own relationship with life and all of its mysterious offerings, including weed and all plant spirit allies.
