I have often been asked about the use of marijuana. What are it’s effects on the health of our minds, bodies, and emotions? How does it change our astral energy system, chakras, and aura? Is marijuana use good or bad? In this written article, I will share my knowledge of the marijuana plant.
I have heard and read many different opinions on this from all sorts of “credible” spiritual teachers and sources, however, your words are the words I have come to trust the most and feel most genuine in my heart. So I ask, what does the Higher Self have to say about marijuana? Some say using it will permanently damage your astral body and aura. I use it from time to time especially after meditation as I feel it helps me to better sense and work with my subtle energies. What is your take on this? Thank you.
To clarify, this will be Lincoln’s answer and not a channeled Higher Self message. Here is the Higher Self video most closely related to the topic (at this time) http://channelhigherself.com/videos/99-days-99-channels/spiritual-enlightenment-using-plants-chemicals-alcohol-and-drugs/
I have channeled for people in the past – during personal sessions – about marijuana use. The answers from the Higher Self varied person to person – based on who the person was and why the plant was being used. My written article below summaries some main points.
This question is not answered the same way by me for every person. Some people are best served by not using the plant and others can use it more maturely. Of course all laws should be honored when considering the use of an illegal substance, regardless of moral or ethical considerations. In this message, I will not tell you who should or should not use marijuana. Instead I will share some of my knowledge about the nature of this plant medicine and plant spirit. It is up to all people to decide how they wish to experience their realities.
To begin, marijuana increases a person’s awareness of the astral dimension and astral layer of the energy body. For someone with a healthy astral energy body and spiritual maturity there is less psychological and energetic risk. Using marijuana does deplete the body of qi (specifically kidney qi) in order to create it’s heightened state of awareness. So with every use there is an energetic exchange and prolonged use will create inherent weakness. This is why a person feels tired, drained and has mental fog after use. Repeated use causes “burn out” and reduced cognitive performance.
When we are in a heightened state of astral dimension awareness, our choices then determine the benefit or harm that we experience.
Most people do not interact with this plant for spiritual reasons, self-exploration, etc. It is a recreational drug for entertainment. Or is used as an addictive substance to suppress unwanted emotions. For these people the higher purpose of the plant is not being understood or honored. These people would be best served by performing psychological self-exploration and/or psychological counseling to understand and heal their unresolved psychological problems.
The other, less known aspect of marijuana use is the actual spirit that is the marijuana plant. By ingesting the plant, we are merging our consciousness with the spirit of the plant. This again, can be used for beneficial things or it can be used self-destructively. The spirit of marijuana can be interacted with as a teacher – to gain more knowledge about her plane of reality. Also the spirit can over take aspects of our own energy system and personality and use it according to her own desires. So we are handing over a part of our free will to the plant spirit while our consciousnesses are merged. This can have benefit or harm depending on how the plant spirit chooses to interact with us and through us.
In a similar note, with increased astral awareness we may experience interaction with astral dimension beings (spirits). The health of the person’s astral body determines which “sub-dimension” and astral beings one interacts with. Some lower dimension astral beings can cause us harm, confusion, psychic toxicity, emotional toxicity, trauma, etc. Some higher dimension astral beings can support our own psychological and emotional health. A person with a higher vibration (healthier) astral energy system will be less likely to interact with lower vibration astral beings.
Also, the activities of the person’s subconscious mind will create stronger mental, emotional and sensory projections onto the present moment reality during marijuana use. The imagination (both consciously controlled and subconsciously uncontrolled) will become more active. Inner creative inspiration and enthusiasm, passion and joy can emerge. Or deep sadness and emotional pain can emerge. Whatever is within one’s psyche at deeper levels will become more active. The astral body is closely linked to the subconscious dreaming mind (imagination, etc). So use of this plant increases both. Some times what we experience as the non-physical aspects of our plant “trip” are genuine astral plane experiences (objective reality) and other times they are self-created projections. The difference can be difficult to determine by anyone except a person highly adept in this dimension and psychological layer.
Finally, in the end the human being is created perfect. Our awareness is already extending into every dimension of creation. We, as human begins, simply lack awareness of all that we are. Most people are aware only of the physical dimension and have little awareness of the emotional (astral) and mental (causal) dimensions. A plant medicine like marijuana may help to temporarily expand our awareness into another dimension, however it will not permanently give us this awareness. We must learn to achieve these heightened states on our own.
Along the spiritual path, eventually all external aids – like marijuana – must be given up. We must master ourselves. We are already perfect, but we have restricted awareness and control of who we are. Methods like genuine meditation are the most balanced and effective ways to give one knowledge of one’s self and lasting personal mastery.
In regards to nearly every aspect of human life, in my mind, nothing is good or bad. Rather everything creates change and the change moves us in a certain direction. With more wisdom we create better choices. The more objectively we can observe our experiences, being detached but intently curious to learn, the more knowledge we can gain and the better choices we can make.
I hope this helps.
Blessings and Love,
