Marijuana and Spirituality (Does Pot/Weed/Cannabis Enhance Spirituality?)

By Teal

Pot, otherwise known as cannabis or marijuana, is considered a spiritual medicine and has been used asTealScott such since 2000 BC because it is a psychoactive drug. Pot is considered psychoactive because it can alter one’s state of consciousness. Altering one’s consciousness helps them to break free of illusion and the restriction of limited perception.

The number one benefit of cannabis is that it helps people to release resistance. By affecting the brain like it does, it inhibits the brain from focusing on and translating the resistant, stressful thoughts that cause a negative emotional response within the body. This is why it is so effective at reducing stress. And this is also why it is so effective for the use of pain management. Pain is a symptom of resistance. By causing a person to release resistance and “flow downstream with life” a person is free to be who they really are. More of their true essence is present in the absence of resistance and this is why people often undergo such intense spiritual experiences while under the influence of cannabis. But this is also why it is used recreationally.

If a person tries to escape their resistance by using a tool like cannabis, they have learned nothing but to be dependent on the tool. They may have increased their awareness of what is beyond this dimension, but they have not learned anything about how to access states of consciousness beyond the 3-D consciousness on their own, without the use of an external substance/tool. In essence, they have become powerlessly dependent.

While these medicines are often life changing because they can serve to crack through the illusion of the physical dimension so a person can peer beyond the illusion, they all too often become a person’s only way of transitioning their consciousness into a “more spiritual” state. They then become a crutch that disables a person from reaching those states organically. The feeling state created by these medicines becomes an addiction and the more subtle transition of increasing one’s vibration and altering one’s focus so as to facilitate an organic shift in consciousness, no longed registers as a “special and noteworthy experience” when compared with the intensity of the radical break from reality, caused by the medicines. So often the drug itself becomes the person’s only access to spirituality. The drug itself becomes the religion.

In this episode, TEAL explains the benefits and drawbacks to using pot in spiritual practice.

  1. Hi Teal.. and I believe this is true with any drug, food, or ritual that becomes an addictive habit or way of being. I like variety with eating, with my work, and with all my rituals. I don’t depend on vitamins, medications, or certain foods to maintain my well-being.. I feel joyful with whatever I do, or I don’t do it. If I work out at the gym, its because I enjoy doing it, and if I don’t it all good.. and I’m not addictive with what I do. I work various hours as a hairstylist, and hynotherapist, and have a variety of clientS. And my work is never the same week to week.. I also have alot of people in my life that are very similiar to myself… I feel more joy, peace, and love in my life now, and enjoy creating daily from my now moment in consciousness. I have smoked pot for recreational purposes when I was in that place with people similiar. I look back with fond memories, and have released that drug addictive part of me that was in a different consciousness. I enjoy being able to manifest any altered state now on my own, and feel more centered within, with my inner higher self, and intuitive knowing. 🙂 Tommy
