If you are human, it’s likely that there is something in your life you would like to change. And, as a creature of habit, change can be quite difficult—even elusive.
Many people respond to the need for change by complaining; they wish circumstances were different but assume they are powerless to do anything about it. Others respond to the need for change by taking the advice of a wide variety of salespeople, swinging from one satisfaction guarantee to the next. Still others find it easiest to throw in the towel and deny that change is even possible. The common denominator in each of these cases is failure to achieve a desired goal—and a lot of people who don’t feel very good.
Those who are determined to feel better, however, make a certain commitment. It begins with a single conviction: You are capable of astounding, tremendous, miraculous change. And of course, medicinal cannabis lends a helping hand with a green thumb.
Reaching for medical marijuana instead of narcotic pain relievers or anti-depressants represents a very important—and specific—type of change (according to Portland OR dispensaries). As a natural healing agent, it creates harmony and alignment within the body-mind. This can be very different from the type of thinking and feeling we have become used to.
Relief from physical suffering is only the beginning. Become an active part of your own healing transformation! Be aware of any thought that creates suffering. Any thought holding you hostage. Any thought suggesting you do something that doesn’t align with your goals. This type of internal awareness increases response time, so that when a counter-productive thought arises, you are able to let it go without reservation, without delay, and without deliberation. Every negative has a positive already built into it—when you notice a thought with a negative twist, spin it again! As your thoughts become more positive, your body heals more quickly. You experience less pain.
It’s ironic, but the secret to making change is consistency. Practice makes permanent. As you make a habit of awareness, you can shift any pattern. Your thoughts are the keys to the door of your perception. Slow down and truly examine your beliefs, desires, fears, expectations, and feelings—and embrace their absolute power to shape your life, RIGHT NOW.
