Can Cannabis help you on your spiritual path? Or, will it actually hinder your growth?
As cannabis becomes legal for recreational use in more states in the U.S and countries worldwide, you may be wondering… What is the connection between marijuana and spirituality? Can marijuana be a benefit on your spiritual path?
From a spiritual perspective, and from the perspective of raising your vibration, embodying more of your higher self, and tuning into greater levels of light can marijuana benefit you on your spiritual path?
Does cannabis support spiritual awakening?
Marijuana and Spirituality
First of all, I want to express that we are each on a unique soul path and journey.
Cannabis is not a one size fits all plant medicine.
It's a double-edged sword.
This simply means that it can be used as a helpful tool and medicine, or it can be used in a destructive, addictive, harmful, and toxic way.
While cannabis is not physically addictive it can definitely be psychologically addictive. As a tool, medicine, or even used for recreation, cannabis can alter your state of consciousness and shift your perception. When you smoke or ingest it, your consciousness experiences a shift in awareness.
So can you have spiritual experiences by smoking marijuana?
Absolutely! Just understand that cannabis is not required for spiritual development, and in many cases, especially where an addiction is formed it can become an obstacle rather than a tool that is supporting your spiritual growth.
People React to Marijuana Differently
Its important to keep in mind that Cannabis effects everyone differently, and of course, there are many different strains, as well as different ways to ingest it.
If you've even dabbled in this world, its probably already obvious to you that different strains of Cannabis have entirely different effects on your mood, consciousness and level of awareness.
One strain may just help you to feel more relaxed, and trigger pleasant sensations in your physical body, while another can have a much headier effect.
And then of course, how you ingest marijuana, is another variable that plays a role in your experience. When you eat Cannabis in the form of edibles, candies, cookies, etc… Its effects take longer to kick in, but then do so even stronger than if you smoked or vaporized it.
An important thing to keep in mind about how this all works is that no matter how you’re using it, either smoking or ingesting it, you are actually becoming a vibrational match with the marijuana / cannabis plant, with the marijuana consciousness, with the marijuana entity and astral beings behind and associated with this plant.
Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Is becoming a vibrational match with marijuana helpful for you on your spiritual and ascension path or detrimental and only weighing you down?
Okay so here's where things get a bit convoluted because honestly, it depends on where you are vibrationally when you smoke or ingest cannabis in the first place.
If your vibration is lower than the vibration of marijuana (which is the fourth-dimensional vibration of marijuana), becoming a vibrational match with marijuana will have an effect of elevating your vibration. This is why people who are stressed or feeling in a funk love it, it creates a real and tangible consciousness/ mood shift. The problem is… It doesn't teach you how to shift without the use of the plant.
Quick note for clarity: Marijuana use is in no way required to raise your vibration, and there are many more effective vibrational tools that have fewer side effects.
Also, if you do use marijuana to create a positive vibrational shift, know that you usually catch up to maintaining a level of vibration that is comparable to marijuana after smoking or using the drug roughly three times.
That being said, the medicinal properties of marijuana are undeniable, and it has been proven to be beneficial for pain management, for people who are going through chemotherapy, and for people who are stuck in intense anxiety or depression.
In some cases (and talk to your doctor), your intuition will tell you whether it's right for you. If you are in extreme pain or anxiety, marijuana may have a role in helping you to release pain and resistance. You may also want to look into CBD which brings many of the health benefits of Cannabis without the THC that is the compound associated with the consciousness altering effect.
Raise Your Vibration to An Even Higher Level Than Plant Medicine Allows
If you you are on a conscious spiritual path of raising your vibration, tuning into higher levels of light, meditating, ascending, and bringing higher levels of joy, love, and positivity into your life using some of the tools and techniques that you’re finding here this site, smoking marijuana will likely have the effect of lowering your vibration.
And honestly its not that simple. It has a clouding and chaotic effect on your etheric and astral body. It also opens you up to a plethora of beings you'd probably be better off not connecting with at all, and can bring a strong element of confusion and distortion to your spiritual path and practice.
Important Side Note: Stronger Plant Medicine like Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Psilocybin, etc can have an even more destabilizing and distorting effect on sincere spiritual seekers and lightworkers as it deeply anchors astral spiritual experiences and opens connections with questionable astral beings.
The pull and invitation from Source at this time is to go much higher, to reconnect with the Divine I Am Core and highest levels of Divine Love and Light, so the glamour of astral spiritual experiences is not entirely helpful.
If you're doing your spiritual and soul work, you're already vibrating at a clearer, and higher vibrational rate than these consciousness altering substances can bring you too (even if you're not yet fully aware of that level of perception).
My mission, and what I'm so excited to help you tune into, is ability to see and know for yourself the higher dimensions of love, joy, and positivity.
We each have the opportunity in this life time to go so much higher than the astral plane/ fourth dimension! We’re tuning into the fifth, seventh, ninth, eleventh and beyond.
We are tuning into the Divine I Am, to evolve and grow as spiritual beings in physical form to become the True Beings of Love and Freedom we can become.
One of my friends, when we were first exploring channeling together, commented on how much better a high channeling and tuning into the Archangels is compared to marijuana… I agree completely!
The spiritual high and Divine Intoxication available within deep states of stillness, and accessible through practice and developing subtle sense organs is quite literally out of this world.
Getting a Higher Vibration Without Getting High
Marijuana, although not physically addictive, is mentally addictive.
I’ve already mentioned that the marijuana entity becomes a vibrational match with you. The actual plant consciousness, the plant medicine does have a way of pulling you in, of inviting you back and attaching energetic cords.
(Stronger psychoactive plants like Ayahuasca attach STRONG cords into people. The entities behind Ayahuasca are infamous for convincing spiritual seekers that a huge part of their soul purpose and mission is to promote the use of the plant!)
If you want to release marijuana from your life, begin by asking Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael to cut any and all cords to marijuana and release it from your energy into the light.
If you are smoking and ascending, marijuana is only going to create a haziness in your aura and your energetic field.
Sure, it's an instant gratification mood shift and an instant shift out of 3D into the fourth-dimensional realm, but while marijuana can help you get to this fourth-dimensional/ astral plane, it doesn't teach you how to get there without using the substance again.
This is why it’s psychologically addictive.
If you're in a lower vibration and you enjoy the vibrational match with the plant, you then have to return to the plant time and time again in order to get to that vibrational state versus meditation.
Going within in meditation, or doing activities like toning, chanting, playing singing bowls, drumming, dancing, or being creative, all elevate your vibration. They help you to learn to connect you with your higher self, open your heart and help you to tune into the higher dimensions of experience in a way that you can then return to time and time again.
The reason marijuana is correlated with spirituality is because it can help you break free from illusions that are gripping you. It can help you to see beyond the veil.
But it doesn't teach you how to do this. It can quickly become a crutch as you return to marijuana time and time again to reach that same vibrational state, inviting the potential for you to become dependent on marijuana for your spiritual experience in a powerless way.
Use Psychic Protection
Also, marijuana is highly reactive to intention. If you are going to smoke marijuana, please meditate beforehand and set the intention for your experience to help you connect with higher levels of light.
Cannabis opens the door to the astral (and there are many nasty astral beings out there you do not want to be a part of your life or have in your space). If you’re smoking marijuana even occasionally, it’s hugely important to protect yourself psychically. Use the Psychic Golden Light practice and protect yourself and then Cleanse your energy afterwards!
Protect yourself psychically and set the intention for your experience with marijuana to positively impact your experience. If you don't set the intention for smoking or eating edibles to help connect with your higher self or spiritual insight, it will be your subconscious intentions that manifest.
These are largely going to be about releasing fears. This is why paranoia and mental chatter come up during an experience with marijuana.
My Experience with Marijuana and Spirituality
If your vibration is higher than marijuana’s when you smoke, your experience may be less than positive. When I used to smoke Cannabis, I enjoyed it at first.
It felt rebellious to me, like a sacred ceremony. I really enjoyed smoking the herb out in nature, it made me feel like I was open to a new layer of nature experience, and it made me feel like I was progressing on my path. But I did in this way become psychologically dependent on it.
Later on, when I continued smoking (honestly, more and more) I didn't have that same experience at all.
In fact, it started to make me feel worse than before I smoked! This is because in my normal life, in my sober time in nature, and in my normal meditation practice, I'd started connecting with much higher light than I could ever access through smoking or ingesting marijuana.
So when I smoked it from that place… It clouded, distorted, and convoluted the clear Divine Light and Divine I Am Presence that is my core intention to anchor into my life more and more.
For this reason, Marijuana is out of my life.
I am so incredibly grateful for that fact because without it, without marijuana, and without alcohol, without Ayahuasca, and without other psychoactive “plant medicine”, or other drugs that only open you up to the astral fourth dimension….
I Am -and you are – able to lift higher and shine so much brighter.
Releasing Marijuana from Your Life
If you want to release marijuana from your life, I recommend Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves Angel Detox book. I know Doreen's completely shifted her stance on working with angels… But this is still a helpful look at methods for connecting with the Archangels to cut the cords of addiction from your life.
There is also a book called “The Naked Mind,” that focuses more on releasing alcohol from your life, but is also beneficial. It talks about the addiction process and how to release addictions from your life.
In addition, here are a few EFT (emotional freedom technique) videos from Brad Yates free on YouTube that deal with releasing addictions.
When you keep finding yourself reaching for something you know is not ultimately serving you any longer, it’s because there are lower vibrational emotions hanging on in your emotional body. Keep working with your Angels to clear your emotional being.
To release negative emotions from your energy body, check out my emotional clearing article here, and keep opening your heart.
Keep filling yourself up with light, keep meditating, going inward, connecting with your team of Guides and Angels, and elevating your vibration.
You can reach higher levels of light, and such profoundly expansive areas of consciousness. You can Truly experience a more powerful high without marijuana (and even without Ayahuasca) than you can with it.
If marijuana is still a part of your process, there is no judgment on my part flowing your direction. I used to smoke marijuana to self medicate for anxiety, and it served me at one point in my life, but it doesn't any longer.
I wanted to be authentic and vulnerable while sharing this with you. If you are a high vibrational light being, star seed, way shower, or lightworker and you’re smoking marijuana, pay attention…
Observe your energy body, mental and emotional state before and after ingesting it…
Is Cannabis at all supportive of your spiritual path or is it only weighing you down?
As spiritual seekers discernment is so key. Stay clear, alert, aware and Know what is and what is not beneficial for you.
I hope this article is helpful for you.
