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…

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…

It Started with a Single Thought

Labels Before I begin, allow me to disclaim that the following was written at the peak of a wake and bake, so this seems much more profound in my head. If you really think about it, we label ourselves constantly – “Capricorn,” “Employed,” “Married,” “Victim,” we even label ourselves by our illnesses…then we join groups…

The 10 Minute Pocket Guide to Changing Your Life

I was inspired to post a short video of an essay I wrote a couple of years ago. My hope is that it will help you as you continue on your journey of self awareness. You can download it on Amazon Kindle if you’d like to use it as a reference, or simply listen to…

Intuitive Tarot is Better with Weed

Lost again, it seems I get lost a lot on this mindfulness/spirituality of consciousness journey. So this morning it was a Sativa wake and bake, coupled with pulling my tarot cards, which I haven’t felt the need to read in quite some time. As the scene unfolded, I began writing my thoughts in my journal,…
