The first question to be answered in any potentially meaningful relationship is: “And how are you crazy?”
So, have you given it any thought: how ARE you crazy?
For me personally (just off the top of my head):
- I can be aggressively controlling.
- I can be judgmental (about others for sure- but often about myself).
- I can be manipulative (sneaky ways to get you to do what I want).
- I can hand-wring about every little thing.
This question (which we mostly are never asked and never answer) is vitally important because although most of us manage to look just fine, we all have an inner world that is often dark and difficult to navigate.
Recently, someone answered that question by telling me, “30+ years of PTSD have somewhat slightly affected my ability to form and maintain relationships.” When I probed and asked specifically what he thought it was about his behavior that sabotaged relationships, he couldn’t answer.
In order to be in touch with: “this is how I’m crazy”, it’s vital to be aware of the difficult emotions that you struggle with. Once you know that anger or anxiety or grief or depression or low self-esteem or loneliness is your bogieman (or, if you’re like I was, several bogiemen), then we can begin the process of releasing ourselves from their tormenting clutches. The result is enhanced clarity and inner stability that leads to an enduring peaceful state of mind.
My Cannabis Ceremonies are experiential evenings for going deep into this territory. The ancient and esoteric energizing practices we employ are likely nothing you’ve experienced before. And the lift of our beloved Spirit Plant medicine thins the boundary between the conscious and unconscious, amplifies our awareness and stimulates going inward while heightening the effects of the practices.
If you or a loved one are looking for relief from difficult emotions, do check out my site. If you’re in the Denver area, here’s the Events Calendar for your planning purposes.
Otherwise, if you’re long-distance, connect with me for a complimentary 20-minute session to discuss how you can find relief through my Emotional Liberation work.
I look forward to seeing you again or meeting you for the very first time.
I am here with you and for you,
P.S. BTW, thanks to the NYT for the “How am I crazy” question, which came in an article entitled: “Why you will marry the wrong person”.
