Microdosing #2

I started Microdosing cannabis recently.  

Here is why:

Many ailments can be treated with small amounts of cannabis:

This is an excerpt from an article written by Adam Hoffman that I found on the Leafly website:

“When you raise the dose sometimes you get diminished benefits, and sometimes you get the opposite of what you are looking for,” says Dustin Sulak, an osteopathic physician based in Maine who treats many of his patients with small doses of cannabis. For example, while a little cannabis can help reduce anxiety, too much can actually cause it.

What Medical Conditions Lend Themselves to Microdosing With Cannabis?

According to Sulak, patients are now turning to microdosing in order to treat conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, pain, and to help improve focus and promote sleep.

After my personal experience I started to read article after article about the benefits of micro dosing. 

I’d like to add to what I’ve read.

I believe the reason why micro dosing is so effective is because it opens up our consciousness just enough to allow the different aspects of our beings (mental, emotional, spiritual and physical) to interact and balance out.  

Stay with me here:

Think about our Structure.  Our Soul (spiritual) is housed within our body (physical) which is made up of systems that work interdependently and seamlessly in their purpose to maintain the most efficient health and wellbeing.  One of these systems is the nervous system, which houses the most powerful tool on the planet - your brain (mental). Our pre frontal cortex is what separates us as humans from other beings that inhabit physical space on this earthly dimension. As your body exists on this plane of physical space (through a contract your soul made) your brain creates itself a reality based on the thoughts you have.  This is so the soul can have a grounding point. The result of this creation of reality are feelings (emotional) that defines our personal human experience by giving us information to make choices on our path in life.  

When one of these aspects of the self are “off” or affected by dis-ease, it has an effect on the rest of the Structure. The circumstances of this are natural and nature can usually take care of itself.  However, with the collective consciousness at work we, as humans, tend to disengage with our truth and subscribe to the stories that have been indoctrinated into our society.  Often times this results in a further decline of health and well being, until we are only a fraction of our potential and life holds little or no value.

What microdosing allows is for is a sweet spot where our ego softens just a bit and our inner wisdom speaks through the clouds of conditioning.  Here is an entire universe where information  is available that can aid us in making choices that are for the greatest benefit to us.

Here is a personal example:  

I am sore.  

My lower back is tight from carrying my baby and sleeping in a bad position.  

It is making work difficult because sitting at the computer exasperates the pain.  

I begin to feel agitated because I can’t get my work done. 

and I also can’t seem to get a break from carrying the baby. 

I want a day off! 

I want a massage! 

I Micro Dose.

After a few minutes I hear the voice in my head say, “Lay Down”.

For some reason I didn’t think this was possible. 

I was about to work, the baby is sleeping.  

I lay down.

I can sense the tension in my body.  

I ask myself to relax.

Anything seems possible.

I begin to take deep breathes.  Long deep breathes, over and over.

I have this tool, but I never use it?!

I see the breathe enter my body and search for areas of tension.

It bumps up against the pain in my back.  

I continue to breathe and relax and the tension actually begins to shift and dissolve.

My heart is opening.

A tear forms in the corner of one eye.

I love my Baby.

I love him so much.

I can’t believe how much he has changed, 

how much I have changed.  

How in less than a year, 

I have witnessed a being grow from a dependent newborn 

in to a bubbling charmer who moves freely and independently. 

I lay in meditation 

and allow the warm, expanding feeling of deep love and gratitude to wash over me.

After a few minutes I give thanks.

I get up and stretch.

I feel SO much better.

I don’t work.  

Instead I do a few yoga poses and draw a hot bath.

Holy shit, this is so amazing.

I stay in the bath for 30 minutes.

I am beyond relaxed, grateful and in Love with Life.

My baby wakes up.

I nurse him with all my being.

I start dinner.

I watch with awe my husband play with the kids.

The only thing that has changed is EVERYTHING.

How is this?

I believe it is the Universe within each of us opening up and interacting with itself in a way that we get to witness and observe.  We are invited to make choices based on the curiosity and natural trust we came into this world with, but have forgotten.  

Micro Dosing allows for the opening and softening as well as allowing us to maintain our cognitive recognition and functioning so that we can integrate the experience.  It’s all the aspects of our being: mental, spiritual, physical, emotional - to work in alignment with the support of our consciousness.
