Have you noticed? There’s a lot of talk these days of achieving higher consciousness through the experience of various psychedelics. And the way it’s happening is all over the map … whether you’re traveling to the jungles of South America for ayahuasca ceremonies with shamans or partying closer to home using substances like ecstasy (MDMA).
I have friends and acquaintances both my age and a lot younger partaking of these mind altering substances to achieve … something. It really varies, whether you categorize it as the search for deep transformation or stirring your brain cells to amplify music and social connection.
But as a student of this phenomenon, I believe the common thread is a desire – a longing – for something that’s missing in our day-to-day existence. As a society, we’re living lives bereft of meaning and, at some level, realizing that all our buying and accumulating, whether it’s material goods or vast knowledge, only serve to drive us further away from what we’re really desiring.
And what are we desiring?
I characterize it as an emptiness that we’re trying to fill, inner healing we’re trying to achieve. And many of us are waking up to the fact that fulfillment and healing is not out there. So it must be about going inward. And maybe the hallucinatory dimensions of psychedelics will be the ticket to going in and finding the answers.
I hedge my answer because (and this is a highly unscientific survey) I see about as many people profoundly benefiting from their psychedelic experiences as I see being buffeted by difficult ones, referred to as spiritual emergencies by the eminent researcher of non-ordinary states of consciousness, Dr. Stan Grof. (To be fair, those in the know, say that the ‘difficult” experiences are opportunities for break-throughs. But, just the same, I observe and interact with a lot of people struggling post-experience. If this is you, let me hear from you.)
I want to bring this around to my beloved Spirit Plant of choice, marijuana. If you’re looking for emotional healing and personal transformation, I believe you need not look any further. When paired with specific approaches (we call them technologies) drawn from ancient civilizations, marijuana can usher you into dimensions of deep healing and self-realizations that allow you to live life like you’ve never lived it before.
My work is focused on these healing approaches with the support of marijuana; I call it being a Cannanaut™. I have much more to share with you in this realm. So, if you haven’t watched this video and signed-up here so we can be in touch, don’t delay, do it now:)
I’m excited to invite you to be a Cannanaut. It’s a very personal decision to embark upon this intentional healing journey. I have conveniently numbered my videos so that you can pick up with number 1 and go from there to learn more about this.
Meantime, I’d love to hear from you with your thoughts and experiences around this.
I’m sending you my love and support in all ways, Becca
