Ink Blot Blasphemy

I’m not sure the level of blasphemy I’m about to commit, but I’m sure there are some people out there who would prefer that ink blots be held to the strictest of uses, as well as their formal interpretations adhered. During meditation last night, I used ink blots to help trigger my creative mind. It…

The Losses Are My Greatest Accomplishments

I am thankful everyday for the people and things in my life. It would be rather lazy of me to tell you for whom and what items in my life, I am thankful. I have found another type of gratitude, not for things but for events, especially the losses. I have yet to understand all…

Settle Your Thoughts, Don’t Lower Your Standards

I saw this post on Instagram this evening, and I just had to repost it. Thing is, my caption occurred to me so spontaneously that I knew I had to explore it. Settling means so much, doesn’t it? In everyday life, it generally means to “take what you can get.” How crappy is that? Then…

A Dance with My Demons

It is said that the journeyman is unbound by the shackles of indenture. The journeyman is the individual who makes his own rules based on his knowledge, and the way I am defining journeyman today is not too different. In meditation, the journeyman is an individual who embarks upon their journey with the willingness to…

Shower Meditation

There’s always an air of ritual with any prayer, and meditation is no different. You don’t have to call it a prayer, but it’s the same principle. People think that there’s an elaborate build up when you’re getting ready to meditate, candles, incense, Tibetan singing bowls…I could go on and on. Those things are all…

Tips and Tricks for Cannabis Meditation

Last year, I chatted with someone who said, “I wish I could always feel like I feel when I meditate with cannabis.” Truth is, meditation seeps into your conscious mind without you even realizing it. It takes time, but if you continue to chase your subconscious mind, no matter if you feel like you’re “doing…

I Cannot Follow My Dreams Until I Entertain My Demons

Meditation has become my passion. It’s in those minutes where I have found my imagination waiting for me. I’ve found souls of the blessed and of the damned, and lessons to be taken from each. In mediation, I seem to find a place where fear has no definition, and an understanding of life’s intricacies begins…

Freestyle

A cannabis meditation writer’s journey. I did an edible (Northern Standard’s Raspberry Ripples) and smoked pot while I waited for the edible to kick in (Northern Standard Bordeaux Lavender vape, to be exact). Then I meditated to this meditation on YouTube (which is also saved to a playlist on the Cannabis Meditation Network), and wrote…

Slices of Cake & Slivers of a Broken Heart

Technically the “slices of cake” are hits of Papaya Cake, a unique strain of cannabis that combines a tropical fruitiness with a sweetness reminiscent of cake. Take it from me these flavors are prominent, especially when you think about weed differently. I used to be the stoner who said, “It’s tastes like weed,” or “It’s…
