I often get letters from folks sharing their experiences and asking questions. This correspondence can offer spectacular insights and musings that answer questions that many others have on their mind. So I’m sharing one with you today…

Can you tell me how to use cannabis in the most honorable and respectful way in order to benefit from its use? I want to understand cannabis. I want to meet the spirit of cannabis.
I also want to know if you have any tips for people who have been through marijuana addiction?

Thanks for your important questions, Benny.
I get asked a lot about cannabis’ role in emotional healing. And frankly some people are a little uneasy about it – or even downright scared in applying it in this way.
But given the intense curiosity around it, it tells me that cannabis’ role in emotional healing is getting much deserved attention regarding its support as a tool to help people heal into emotional freedom, a fully awakened life, and their true spiritual potential.
As a trained clinician and emotions therapist, I know that cannabis has been established as a safe and supportive ally – as a mind, body and spirit medicine. And it’s why I embrace it (along with psilocybin microdosing) in my emotional healing work.

Emotions are not matter 

What’s important to remember – and I’m getting woo-woo here – is that emotions are not matter. They’re energy. In other words, unlike a broken bone or a tumor or cancer, emotions can’t be physically seen or touched. Emotions are a sensation – and in the case of anxiety or self-doubt or depression for example, those sensations can be agonizing.
So what we’re doing is using the support of cannabis with other tools to process and release difficult emotions – and the trauma underpinning them. When we intentionally employ cannabis in this way we’re actually using energetics (that is energy medicine) to shed our limiting beliefs and patterns that make up our personalities, which we’ve shaped over the course of our lifetime – some say many lifetimes. And when the judicious use of cannabis is paired with our other unique tools, this work can lead to transformational healing and spiritual awakening. (Just check-out some of our students’ experiences.)

Let’s talk about “marijuana addiction” 

Just as a person with an eating disorder needs to re-set their relationship with food, many come to me to “re-set” their relationship with cannabis. In applying cannabis in this new way as a “spirit medicine” – it becomes an ally to help a person feel the sensations that are coming up and moving through for release.
Embracing cannabis this way is a far cry from its use as an “addictive substance” to numb distressing emotional sensations because they feel so bad. In my emotional liberation method, people learn to strengthen their nervous systems and mental agility so they can confront and process the emotions – to finally be left in a place of peaceful existence in their life.
Benny, thanks for allowing me to set the record straight on this! Getting the emotions to flow is pivotal to releasing them. It’s a process that takes commitment and perseverance!
With Love,
