With sweeping legalization of medical and recreational marijuana across the country, views of its use are becoming more and more permissive. But as we’ve seen with alcohol, just because a substance is legal doesn’t mean it can’t pose serious risks to your mental, physical and spiritual health.
While some people can use marijuana occasionally with minimal impact on their lives, for many, regular long-term marijuana use negatively affects their relationships, motivation and general ability to stay present in their obligations. As with any substance, using marijuana significantly alters your energy – and this can hold you back from uncovering and living out the true meaning of your life on Earth. The good news is that holistic marijuana addiction treatment can mark the beginning of an incredible journey that allows you to discover your true path and live your fullest, most authentic life as a result.
How Marijuana Dulls Your Flame
The overuse of marijuana can sap you of the drive and passion you need to show up in your life. And in turn, repeatedly missing out on opportunities creates feelings of self-disappointment, which prompts you to use more to check out of your uncomfortable emotions – a cycle that ultimately leads to marijuana addiction.
At The Sanctuary, we understand that a major component of addiction recovery is getting back the passion, drive, and motivation we need to create the lives we want to live. By connecting to our purpose, discovering our life’s mission and finding inspiration in the world around us, we can begin to truly live out our full potential and welcome possibilities with open arms.
As opposed to looking to sources outside ourselves to fulfill our inner need for happiness – an approach that serves only to perpetuate addiction – the process of finding our true meaning begins with an inward journey. Through a variety of alternative healing modalities like shamanic soul retrieval, spiritual counseling and mindfulness meditation practice, you’ll be able to more clearly see and actively engage with your soul’s work. And once you are on your rightful path, you’ll no longer feel the need to use substances to check out of life’s important experiences.
Instilling Transformative Changes Through Holistic Marijuana Recovery
When you’re genuinely tuned into everything that’s going on and connected to the people around you, you’re far less likely to miss out on the beautiful opportunities the universe presents you with. Returning to your authentic self allows you to hear the important messages your soul has for you, to rekindle your inner fire and to experience a fuller range of emotions.
At The Sanctuary, we offer the opportunity to embark on a journey of amazing self-transformation, guided by a collaborative team of therapists and healers who all work together to ensure your recovery experience is as thorough and sustainable as possible.
