I often get letters from folks sharing their experiences… I call them “Field Reports”. And these field reports offer spectacular insights and musings that answer questions that many others have on their mind. So I’m sharing one with you today (edited for length). In this letter, Sanjana shares her experience in “awakening.”

Becca, thank you so much for your videos. If not for them, I would have spent years on this journey of awakening. Your emotional release work is really intense but accelerated! As you know, cannabis helps access different facets of the traumas so effortlessly. Over 5 years, I’ve watched a lot of YouTubers about spiritual awakenings but you are literally the only one in the spiritual community that uses this method – at least as far I know. I’m so lucky to have found you.

Dear Sanjana,
The Buddha is famously quoted as saying: When the student is ready the teacher will appear.
Maybe that’s why you got me (with credit going to the YouTube algorithms god 😜).
All kidding aside, I do believe when a person is ready to commit to a serious path of awakening and, hence, emotional healing, the way becomes apparent. (In my teaching, emotional healing = awakening.)
In other words, one has to be committed to a path of awakening rather than have a passing interest, because it ain’t easy. Yes, the judicious use of cannabis and psilocybin microdosing are plant allies that can support us in this process, but regardless, we must do the work (and the integration that goes with it!). For permanent healing, we have to meet and feel the emotional pain in order to let it go. The way I teach emotional release is simple, straightforward and effective but you still have to “walk through the fire.”
When we talk about awakening … it’s an inward experience. It’s all about pursuing (and knowing how to pursue) an inner exploration that puts you in a state of alignment with your higher power. Through its spiritual nature, awakening is an altered state of perception – a higher consciousness. By working the tools of awakening, you move into life beyond the “same old, same old” and eventually come to see yourself as whole and complete. Fears dissolve and a deep abiding trust that all is well emerges.
So Sanjana, I celebrate your progress and admire your commitment to your own personal transformation. It’s an awesome way to live!
With Love, Becca
