Cannabis use is on the rise particularly in the US, where it has been legalised in some states. And of course it remains popular even where using it is illegal. Sometimes people are surprised to learn that cannabis usage does come with some risks to your energetic and spiritual health, which I’ll go into in this article. I’m also going to cover the energetic ‘clean up’ that I recommend you do if you do use this drug.

What Cannabis Does to Your Energy Field

(Before I explain what cannabis does to the energy field, I just want to clarify what exactly the energy field is.)

The energy field is an invisible field that surrounds each of us. It encompasses the subtle bodies, the major and minor chakras and the meridians. It’s a complex, vibrating mass of information about our emotional and spiritual life, our strengths and gifts, physical health, wounds and traumas, and the challenges and lessons that we are here on earth to learn. So, on an energy level, it is the container that holds your soul, your physical body, your emotions and your psyche.

Just like your skin is the container for your body, and a barrier between you and the outside world, your energy field is an energy barrier between you and the world. It has boundaries, meaning that the energetic barrier between you and the world is hopefully intact and solid and as a result, your energy field does not generally let everything and anything into it and you’re not going to merge your energy with other energies that you come across (empaths, you’re an exception to this).

But when you use cannabis (whether you smoke it or ingest it), 2 things happen:

The first is that you are propelled into the astral realm, which is an invisible overlay of this physical realm. This is the realm of ghosts, Spirit Guides, angels and elementals (fairies.)

The astral realm has levels to it – some levels are high vibrational (these are the levels where our guides hang out) and some are low vibrational (these are the places where you’ll find stuck spirits i.e. ghosts.)

The astral realm is also the place you visit in your dreams and other mind-altering substances will take you there, too. So not a lot wrong with this – you visit the astral realm every night anyway.

However, this drug doesn’t just propel you into the astral realm – cannabis also relaxes your energetic boundaries to an extent that many other mind-altering substances do not. This means that your energy field is not so much a container anymore, instead the boundaries become fuzzy and your field expands — you become something more resembling a big, open, melted mess of energy.

It’s not a good idea to be quite this undefended and expanded when you visit the astrals under the influence of a drug, because the chances are you will encounter low-vibrational earthbound spirits in the astrals.

(Earthbound spirits are stuck souls who left a part of their mental or emotional bodies on earth when they died, and a result did not cross over fully. This may be due to trauma, addiction or fear of death.)

You’re not just likely to encounter these stuck spirits when you’re stoned, you will ATTRACT them. Some spirits are earthbound precisely because they were addicts when they were incarnated and don’t want to be leave the earth plane and their beloved substance behind. There are spirits who enjoy being in your energy field when you’re high, and will stay attached to your energy field if they decide they like you.

(Read this article to find out more about why having an earthbound spirit attached to your energy field is a bad idea.)

Even people who habitually call on Archangels for spiritual protection (and even those who are usually surrounded by the protective energy they’ve called on in the past) will lose this protection when using cannabis. It’s what cannabis does, and so there is no point asking for spiritual protection before you smoke because cannabis is simply a substance that has a certain effect on human beings. This is a type of cause & effect that the Archangels do not protect you from – it’s about as helpful as asking Archangel Michael for protection before you have unprotected sex.

So, if you use cannabis and you’d like to keep a clear energy field, you need to do some energetic ‘clean up’ afterwards.

If you’re a cannabis smoker or consumer (whether regular or sporadic), I recommend that you use the earthbound spirit clearing technique given in my new book The Empath’s Toolkit (the physical and Kindle version of the book will also be available on Amazon next month, but for now it is just for sale here on my website and on Kobo.)

Of course, this book is recommended for all overwhelmed empaths too, because empaths have the special talent of tending to take on earthbound spirits, too! (and they don’t even need to be stoned to do it.) Sorry, empaths!

Update:

I wrote a second article to clarify some of the questions that this one brought up. You can read it here: Am I Anti-Cannabis? (& Other Questions Brought Up By My Last Article)
