Here at Wandering Weed Witch's Worldly Wares, we are always looking for new ways to incorporate cannabis into our practice. Take a look at a few of our favorite ways to incorporate the yerba magica into our self-love routine too.
1. Gather your supplies You will need:
cannabis (any form blunt, bong, joint, dab, etc.),
a lighter, candle, or match,
a rose quartz crystal,
a self-love affirmation of your choice.
2. Set your intention
What is your intention for this ritual? Take some time to meditate on what you would like to achieve. What are some ways you can love yourself more? You may want to write them down or say them out loud.
3. Cleanse your space
Open a window, sweep with salt, light some cleansing herbs, and set the mood with some relaxing music. You can also use a simple saltwater or essential oil solution. You can use one or a combination of the above methods.
4. Ground and center yourself
Take a few deep breaths, inhaling through your mouth and exhaling thru your nose, and begin to ground and center yourself. You can achieve this by standing barefooted on the Earth while visualizing roots growing from your feet and down into the Earth, taking deep breaths, or even standing in running water.
5. Now is the time to call in your spirit guides (optional)
Call in your guides, deities, or the elements, depending on your path. These could be ancestors, guardians, deities, spirit animals, or any other being(s) you feel led to work with.
6. Make your offering (optional)
Many often use Cannabis as an offering to the Gods or Goddesses. You can also use it as an offering to your ancestors or any other being you are working with.
7. Prepare your cannabis
If you're using dried herb, grind it up. If you're using a concentrate, get your dab or vape rig ready. Make sure to focus on your intention while doing this. Try to visualize your desired outcome as you roll up or get your bong ready.
8. Meditate with your cannabis
Hold the cannabis in your hands close to your heart. As you do so, visualize love and light entering your body and flowing from you in all directions.
9. Hold your crystal
Hold the Rose Quartz in your non-dominant hand and focus on its energy. Visualize it amplifying the love and light within you.
10. Repeat your affirmation
Say your chosen affirmation out loud 3 times. Feel the love and power within you grow with each repetition.
11. Continue to meditate on self-love
Sit in silence for as long as you like, focusing on the love within you. Allow yourself to feel completely loved, supported, and safe.
12. Enjoy your smoke
Now it's time to enjoy your smoke! With each hit imagine the smoke being charged with pink love energy. As you take the smoke into your lungs, visualize this energy really penetrating every cell in your body. If you prefer to use edibles, no worries! This ritual can be adapted. Just do your visualizations while eating/drinking. In the end, all that's left is to relax and let the cannabinoids work their magick!
If you are needing some self-love on a day when you don't have quite enough time to go thru all the above steps here are a few more ideas for quicker self-love canna sessions!
1. Relaxing Bath:
Start by drawing a bath and adding some soothing Epsom salts and/or essential oils. Go all out if you have time by adding some candles around. While the tub is filling up, go ahead and roll yourself a joint, pack a bowl of your favorite weed, get your brownie ready, etc. Once you're in the tub, take some deep breaths and relax into the water. Let all your worries wash away as you focus on self-love and self-care. In too big of a hurry for a bath? Adapt this quick self-love ritual into a shower instead!
2. Skincare Routine:
Applying a face mask and taking the time to do a full skincare routine is such an act of self-love. Light some candles and or incense, put on some relaxing music, and take your time massaging in that face cream or scrubbing away dead skin cells. Adding cannabis and crystals into the mix will only elevate your relaxation and help any skin ailments you may have.
3. Make Some Art:
Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, making something with your own two hands is an incredibly satisfying feeling. Break out the art supplies and let your mind flow onto the paper or canvas in front of you. Cannabis can help open up your creativity and give you the mental space to really let loose and make something beautiful.
