Just Drank a Pot

… French press. American woman. White. Privileged. Peaceful. Studio. Kiln. Sewing. Working today. NOT thinking about politics for awhile. Thinking about peace. Nature. Breeze. Ironing the towels I made. The handkerchiefs also. Gift shop at the Benedictine Monastery wants my wares. Putting things together. When you clear space, open to God, doors open. God is the original Divine Creator. God makes great coffee.

The Surprising Factors That Can Make People 4600 Percent More Prone To Addiction

http://www.alternet.org/drugs/tragedy-whitney-houston-and-her-daughter-surprising-factors-can-make-people-4600-percent-more

From Alternet, by Johann Hari, author of ‘Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’

We know the major reason why addiction is transmitted through families – and it is not what most of us think.

“Today, we have a criminal justice system that takes people who are addicted because they endured trauma, and we traumatize them more.

We routinely put them in prison cells with no support, and where rape is a running punch-line in the popular culture. (There’s even a current major Hollywood film – ‘Get Hard’ – based on the hilarity of this premise.) Dr Gabor Mate, one of the leading experts on this question, told me: “If I had to design a system that was intended to keep people addicted, I’d design exactly the system that we have right now.”

Dr Mate – after years of treating patients who became addicts after hellish abuse – has outlined an alternative. Imagine if we had taken the $1 trillion that has been spent so far on the failed drug war, and had spent it on the collapsing services designed to protect abused children instead. Every year there are 686,000 kids who have been identified as abused or neglected in the US – and the services for them are appalling. We are setting up a generation of new addicts – and then we will squander more money punishing them. If we spent the drug war money on turning this around, there would, this evidence suggests, be a genuine and substantial fall in addiction.

But the biggest change this evidence should trigger isn’t political – it is personal. In our everyday lives, we need to think about the addicts we work alongside, live alongside, and love. “When people are having problems,” Dr Robert Anda, another author of the ACE study, tells me, “it’s time to stop asking what’s wrong with them, and start asking what happened to them.”

(via Goodreads:)

“as architect of choosing…
choose. to. live.
awakened. entirely. wholly.

wildly powerful,
deeply masterful,
authentically creative,
thriving.
this is not a hoped-for possible self.
[reminder: this is an immutable Law of your being]

needing not to learn the skill of being whole,
the antidote is to unlearn the habit of living incompletely

here’s the practice:

‘know thyself‘—its about spirit
righteousness is underrated
elevate connection with the changeless essence
seek similitude with the will of Source and will of self

‘choose thyself’—its about substance
sacred. sagacious. spacious.
in thought, word and deed—
intend to: honor virtue. innovate enthusiastically. master integrity.

‘become who you are’—its about style
a human, being an entrepreneur of life experiences
a human, being a purveyor of preferences
being-well with the known experience of soul, in service

your relationship with insecurities, contradictions, & failures?
obstacles or…invitations to grow?
[mindset forms manifestation]
emotions are messengers are gifts
data for discernment: dare to deconstruct them your fears

a belief renovation: fear.less.
& aspire towards ascendance, anyway
support your shine
lean into the Light

be.come.

incandescent

as architect of choosing, I choose…
to disrupt the energy of the status quo,
to eclipse the realms of ordinary,
& to live–a life-well lived.
w/ spirit, substance & style.”

I LOVE Michael Sealey’s Guided Hypnosis & Meditations. I use them regularly and drift off to sleep in the most peaceful way if I’m doing a sleep guided video.  There are plenty of guided meditations meant for the waking hours, too.

Hypnosis – Hypnotherapy – Guided Meditation – Sleep Relaxation

Hi, my name is Michael and welcome to my channel, where I hope you can stop by to relax, listen in, and see for yourself the power of positive hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a completely natural state of often deeply felt relaxation and focused attention, where positive suggestions can be more easily accepted by our subconscious minds. Imagine a fantastic and tranquil state of daydreaming, and that is very close to hypnosis!

Hypnosis can bring us improved self control, clearer and empowered behavioural choices, and allow us to listen to our best inner resources. Many people experience a deep sense of calmness and serenity during hypnotic meditation and are often pleasantly surprised to see the ongoing, life enhancing results.

Thank you greatly for your support, feel free to subscribe and comment on your great results, and I trust you will benefit from your time spent with positive hypnosis.

Peace & Enjoy
