Hey all,

I'd like to get a discussion going of the effects of marijuana on kundalini. My kundalini awoke prematurely last february, and besides a break here in there, I have been smoking almost every night since. I know this isn't recommended, it's something I struggle with. It's the only drug I do, besides lsd and mushrooms from time to time.

Anyways, I'd like to get a clearer picture on what marijuana does to the subtle energy system and kundalini. I've found that when I wake up after a night of smoking, my brain area feels dehydrated almost? Like it's dry and there's a dull pain. I'd never gotten this before my awakening (perhaps it was there but I wasn't aware of it.) I'm getting the sense that is disturbs the flow of energy in the body, because I generally have a harder time meditating after a night of smoking. Pranayama becomes more difficult too.

Anyone have experience/insight they'd like to share? I suppose i'm seeking more perspective cause I want to stop smoking, I know intuitively it's not conducive to a wholesome practice. I'm hoping more insight might push me to replace this habit with a better one (like more yoga!)

Thanks!

Hello RBL,

Thank you for sharing your experience. While we could speculate about the effects of marihuana on kundalini, one thing is clear: This is not supporting the process of spiritual transformation. It is at least a delay in the journey, if not a complete deviation from the course. You are right to consider to stop using marijuana.

Here is a thread started by someone looking to stop smoking:

And here is a thread about the 12 Step Programs for Compulsive/Addictive Behavior:

Hope you find these useful and give them a try!
Best wishes on your path!
