What is the emotional pain you experience, due to the physical pain you are in?

Pain is both physical and emotional.

Stress, lifestyle and chronic illness can create pain cycles that are never ending.

Perhaps you have pain and struggle to get moving and then…

You consider the idea of moving… As you begin to think of what movement to take you start to imagine the pain.

Your body goes into fight or flight mode and you begin to physically manifest and/or increase the intensity of your physical pain.

You feel discouraged and lack the motivation to move.

You never leave the couch.

You repeat this cycle.

Pain creates an emotional response or pain some may identify it as depression, sadness or anxiety. Others might express through anger, withdrawal or bitterness toward their condition.

In the book The Body Keeps Score, we see so many examples of how trauma makes its home in our bodies and finds ways to manifest during our times of illness or injury. Many of the conditions we experience can be exacerbated by these underlying traumas and coping methods from our past.

Working on rebalancing our endocannabinoid system can help us work through some of the issues affecting us by healing the root cause.

Simple ways to begin moving even when experiencing emotional pain and physical pain is to BREATHE.

I encourage you all to find binaural beats on youtube or check out my earlier sound meditation videos on this page. Here’s one to get you started.

Listen with both earbuds in and just breathe. Let the sound and the breath work through you.

I like the consistency of daily microdosing. A little pat of butter goes a long way. 10mg ish because as much as we like to measure it’s impossible to get it exact in my opinion.

Do you canna butter?
I put this in my coffee and it’s perfection.
Also melted on toast, or cooking my scrambled 🍳, on my 🍿 or as one friend so happily shared melted on ice cream it turns into the best crunchy salty goodness ever. 🤤

Meditation Monday! How do you find the calm?

I hear so often people tell me they can’t meditate or they can’t quiet their mind. I absolutely know what you mean. It took some time to get to meditation bliss. Cannabis has helped significantly. It calms my mind, quiets the to do list and let’s me relax into my breath.

The first step in my meditation practice is some intentional cannabis inhales and exhale. While I settle in to my seat. I do love a good sitting meditation but also have found it very therapeutic to lie with my eye mask on and let the sound take me on a deeper journey.

Once I’m relaxed and settled in...I try to imagine white light pouring into me and also emanating from me.

When or if my mind starts to wander I return to my breath and see myself breathing in the white light and breathing out that powerful energy.

If you are needing help with your meditation practice join us next Monday. We start off with our intention and a journal prompt followed by a deep sound journey you can breathe into.

Common misconception is people think cannabis is a one hit wonder. If you are treating a condition or managing symptoms with cannabis you may have to take it just as often as your pharmaceuticals. Check out the @dothepot Podcast episode where I get to share about microdosing cannabis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
