Spirituality and Cannabis
Many yogis, spiritual believers say that it “ helps them become one with self and the universe”. Everything has its own frequency and if we truly listen and let go of our stubborn ways, we can learn many valuable lessons. In turn giving us all a better direction in life. I myself am a spiritual believer. I believe in karma.
From the words of the Bible the 10 commandments “Do unto others as you would have them do to you”. in other words treat others as you would have them treat you, easy enough and yet most people have the hardest time with this simple concept. I am often told how forgiving and kind I am, as though this were a bad quality to have. Smoking cannabis helps me forgive. It takes aggression towards an action, slows it down and allow me to sort through each emotion without acting on impulse. This in itself can help with relationships, work and personal health.
When I practice yoga while high. I forget about what my body should look like, and focus in on what my body feels like it needs. Yoga like dance is very in-tuned with personal alignment. I find that adding cannabis to yoga helps me tune into myself and allows me to move the way I feel I need to move. Connecting to every nerve, sound, color, and thought. After all, each natural bodily function is in its own sense a brain.

But there is a method behind their madness. Dr. Alice Weaver Flaherty, a neurologist. Found this.

Cannabis and Health/Fitness
The munchies – The upside and downside of being stoned. The sudden need to eat everything. I have noticed how much i enjoy preparing and cooking foods. Turning the finished dish into art on the plate. Already being a creative person i enjoy this time. Also practicing health, I enjoy the change in taste when i’m stoned and eating the same meal time and time again.
I get more experimental with spices, i’m currently playing with the taste of pear. As for fitness – Moderation is key. I wouldn’t suggest taking a massive bong toke or 4 and then hitting a heavy session. For myself, I found that cannabis helped me zone out when i went for a run, but made me look like an idiot in the gym. I would get to into my music and start dancing.
Cannabis Sex & Beauty
Yes! yes to it all. Again and again and again. It’s a feeling that is quite indescribable. It puts the spiritual aspect and the arts together. Creating a feeling that is pure euphoria. And every time can be different. Its beautiful. I highly suggest playing with cannabis and the bedroom. For the green thumb. Cannabis is beautiful. The crystals on the leaf, the bushy or the tall. The colors. Green purple, brown, blue. There is a beauty in cannabis. But can it also make you feel beautiful? I smoked a j took a shower and then applied my makeup. I felt really really good. Beautiful yes. I don’t quite know if it was the relaxation in my face the effortless motion of my mascara brush? The fact that i really didn’t care too much to try. But what what ever it was. I found i had an easier time with make up when i was high then when i wasn’t. I struggled with my eyeliner, mascara, face powder. Everything was concentrated and frustrating. Even though i felt pretty. There is something relaxing about cannabis when it comes to beauty.
