Organic High Grade Marijuana and Spirituality
What’s the Link? (article written by Brenda Lane) Pertaining to addiction recovery.
If pot was or is your drug of choice, or if you see it as a chronic and addictive solution to fear and your emotional condition then pot meditation does not apply to you. If you believe addiction is about the substance rather than a person’s heart and mind then this article does not apply to you and won’t make sense. I would not take a shot of whisky or heroin and say it’s a meditation tool just because it’s natural. Opiates/alcohol/Cocaine/ were my drugs of choice and are dangerous for me to even consider using. It doesn’t mean anyone is better than anyone else because of what drug affects them how. But clearly there are people whom pot simply didn’t work for in their addiction. These are actually the people who can benefit most from an occasional organic high grade Marijuana meditation session.
Firstly I have been sober over seventeen years and yes I have smoked a few times in that seventeen years. Many A.A. members wouldn’t even consider me sober. Many members have a right to their opinion. I would cite the fact even our trusted leader and mentor Bill W. used LSD in an attempt to attain another white light experience. And that’s the documented one’s that we know.
I have found that spirituality has ebbs and flows of which I am now at a high point. Please, if you’re a former substance abuser then ‘fear‘ loves to get a foothold in your life. Fear completely controlled you back in the day. We must not let fear take the lead ever again. Meetings and the repetitive working of the twelves steps will strengthen us if we take step eleven seriously. There are some conditions to using organic pot (high grade) as a tool in our spiritual program while in addiction recovery.
- pot cannot be your previous drug of choice.
- It won’t work if you use pot as an emotional crutch
- you should not have inklings toward the abuse of marijuana whatsoever
- it’s best if pot never did much for you
- it works best if you rarely if ever smoke pot
- it works great if pot tends to make you paranoid and expose your fears therefore you generally just say “no” to weed.
- and the most important of all that you have several years sober and have already developed your coping skills therefore you won’t be inclined to use pot as a coping skill.
- must be done with the right motives
- must be done combined with other preparation exercises I will list below.
Preparations these are not all required for results but the more you do the more it will benefit your life and meditation:
- GO ORGANIC for your health sake. (one in two people will get Cancer)
- Go on an organic vegetable fast a month or more prior.
- do a complete water fast for three days prior
- Use Frankincense and/or other essential oils during daily meditation as a preparation and cleansing tool.
- pray and meditate every day for one to two months prior.
- Do a complete body cleanse if you know how to do one prior.
- Repent to your Higher Power for any guilt or shame you feel regardless of what your logical mind tells you, let your heart guide you.
- Use herbs, crystals, and essential organic oils in daily meditation.
- Start an exercise regimen and be sure to give yourself an hour every day to “Spirit building time”.
- Read whatever literature you have that builds your positive outlook.
Sounds like allot of work? Well it is but the question is do you want better grounded-ness? Do you want to be happier and healthier. Do you want to have the awareness to be in the will of “God” as you understand It? Do you want to know what a spiritual experience feels like? And moreover do you want to meet the Spirit Guides that your God has assigned you? Do you want messages from your higher guides of truth and inspiration, enlightenment and fulfillment?
Once you have done all this preparation light a candle, and smudge by burning some kind of herb in the house. If you have a cleansed crystal be sure it’s washed in a natural water source and lay it on your forehead and one on your neck or heart.
Now that you have so diligently prepared your body mind and soul, smoke your high grade marijuana in whatever dose your comfortable with or uncomfortable with. For me all it takes is two puffs and I am there. Suddenly I am feeling uncomfortable. I am aware of my fear and shame. I realize to myself that my level of shame is much higher than I realized. I realize I have been repressing many fears as a survival skill, pushing them down down down into my gut. The pot has created an uncomfortable awareness within me that facilitates an opportunity to address my deepest fears.
I begin my prayers or mantra. You can use the Lord’s prayer or an Indian prayer. See recovery prayers Give thanks to your Higher Power over and over. Pray from your heart. Repent of past wrongs. Pray for those you resent. Ask for forgiveness. Lie down with the crystal on your head and neck and quietly relax. Do this for at least 40 minutes with your eyes closed and your mind open. If you’re a Christian pray for the protection of your God and to be covered by the blood of Jesus during meditation.
I must say many Christians have not taken advantage of one of God’s blessings to us called “Crystals” because they have been told they are evil. It doesn’t matter that their own Bible expresses the value and holiness of certain renowned crystals that are not only on Earth but even in Heaven. Shall we leave such a wonderful gift to the non Christians who seems to be more open minded toward Chrystal use than the most informed preachers? I think not. Read it for yourselves. http://www.recoveryfarmhouse.net/paradise-for-the-hellbound/#HOW TO MEDITATE
Perceiving that the use of a Bible advocating Holy rock is evil is just sad and based in superstition.
At this point we may be visited by our Spirit Guides or the Holy Spirit himself. The degree of spiritual experiences do vary. But most involve some type of healing and deliverance. Expect a miracle.
God listens to our heart. If we are scared we should tell him so. Reach out with your heart Obiwan. From the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. We have been using criticisms and blame far too long as a coping skill. We lay aside our temptation to put people, places, and things down. We leave aside our ridicule and hatefulness. We repent even though the word makes us a little sick inside. That is the ego that wants to keep us sick screaming to escape the truth about ourselves. Why does the truth set us free? Because when we realize who we have been we can speak outloud our character defects and they will lessen. It’s called humility to be aware of one’s own character defects. Not so we can condemn ourselves, we don’t have that right! But rather so we can work on ourselves by going against the grain of our old survival skills and using the knew and loving survival skills to cope day to day.
The ego fights to stay sick because it’s a part of us that is scared and deluded. But our higher self is the one who should take control. We must not ignore our inner innocent child who has valid fears. We can write our fears down and then pray and give them to God. Making a fear list is part of the fourth step listed in the Big Book. We can make Love the ruler of our actions by getting in touch with our higher mind and spirit. Blessing to all.
Visions and revelations are a result of ongoing meditation. Don’t doubt or write off your visions as imagination. All things are possible with God. If God made humans in His image then we can achieve the miraculous!
