Cannabis: Mental, Physical and Spiritual Benefits – Part 2/4

The Cannabis Writings PhotoBy Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

(Continued from part 1)

By conjoining both sides of the Autonomic Nervous System, cannabis ‘enhances’ both sides of the brain and allows for more (and cleaner) blood to enter. Thus, the mind becomes clearer and creativity is enhanced.

Since it works on both sides of the brain and unites the intellectually sharp left side with the creative, artful right side, it allows for relaxation and meditation or active, inspired creativity depending on the user and their intention. It works differently for everyone, and some might not feel as clearheaded or inspired as others. Continue reading

Cannabis: Mental, Physical and Spiritual Benefits – Part 1/4

The Cannabis Writings PhotoBy Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Cannabis is good for the mind, body and spirit. The propaganda routinely aimed at it is intended to demonize it and diminish its value, but despite that we’re finally seeing through the lies, we’ve only decoded a fraction of the mystery behind this phenomenal plant.

Now that people are realizing it isn’t the menace it’s made out to be, they’re standing up for it and raising awareness of the ridiculousness of the laws surrounding it and the fact that the laws need to change so we can utilize everything this plant has to give.

People of every generation are doing the research, thinking for themselves and changing their perspective on a plant that’s been demonized for the purpose of profit and the suppression of our right to use what nature has provided.

They’re working hard to raise awareness in hopes of reaching those who are still in the dark about what cannabis can do, and they’re prepared to take criticism because they know it’s inevitable when standing up for something society doesn’t accept.

Cannabis is liberating the minds of people everywhere who used to think it was a dangerous drug but are now realizing that even though it isn’t for everyone, it drastically improves the quality of life for many people who use it.

No matter what ails them, cannabis helps them with their pain and, from a spiritual perspective, introduces them to meditation in the process.

It gives them access to higher states of consciousness wherein the duality with which we’re so fascinated (good and bad, right and wrong, love and hate, etc.) come together to form pure oneness, and this state of being isn’t as easy to maintain with natural meditation.

Many users don’t realize it, but the cannabis ‘high’ is a form of meditation that has multiple uses. It can be used to induce meditative sensations and visions if you let the mind rest, drift away, perhaps close your eyes and let the spirit reveal itself, or it can be used for creative inspiration.


If used to enhance creativity, it should be kept in mind that nothing, including cannabis, is required to be creative. If you start to rely on it, then it might be best to reconnect with your authentic, effortless creative side.

If you do, you’ll find that it can express itself through you in a flowing, natural way.

While it isn’t required, cannabis can stimulate creativity by opening the mind to a less distorted state of awareness and establishing a clear connection with God, the higher self, a spiritual guide; different people interpret the inner voice in different ways.

I like to think it’s a connection with God, but I can’t say for sure because I don’t know. I do know that it’s incredibly positive, helpful and nourishing, and I’ll continue to try to channel it into these writings.

Cannabis has helped a lot of people discover this peaceful yet vibrant inner space, and an open mind is all that’s required for a simple ‘high’ to become a transformative experience that educates your heart and brings you closer with your soul.

Here, we’ll explore some of the ways cannabis helps the mind, body and spirit. You could write report after report about it and still have more to write, and thanks to the growing awareness of its usefulness, new information is pouring in every day.

There’s so much information out there about a fascinating plant that, in my opinion, is important to the future of humanity, and I look forward to dissecting and discussing it all as it comes out.


According to the website Benefits of Marijuana, cannabis balances out the Autonomic Nervous System, creating a feeling of equilibrium. This alone contributes significantly to health, and if marijuana’s medicinal benefits weren’t enough, we can add psychological well-being to the list.

The body tends to alternate between two opposite modes of being, and remarkably, marijuana unites them. This contributes to the feeling of well-being, and again, it unites the polar opposites within us and creates spiritual balance as well as physical.

Cannabis unifies these different forces in the brain and body, but only temporarily, which is why it helps to learn oneness naturally.

Are You Ready for a Spiritual Revolution? – Part 2/2


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Continued from part 1 (read full post here).

We Don’t Need Them

We don’t need Big Brother watching our every move for ‘national security’ purposes and pouncing on us when they think we’ve done something wrong.

We don’t need militarized police forces causing mayhem in the streets, and we definitely don’t need political pundits in expensive suits screaming at us to conform to a corrupt system that serves them and their rich friends.

We need a new way of life free from the greed and corruption of the one percent, who’ll tell us any lie imaginable just to push their agenda forward. We also need a world free from the greed and corruption of the common man, whose negativity enables the world’s suffering. Continue reading

Are You Ready for a Spiritual Revolution? – Part 1/2


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

If we want to create a new system out of the ashes of the old, we should think about the role we’ll play in creating it.

We should figure out what we can do right now to reflect the paradigm shift the world needs, and we should remember that if we continue to be angry, greedy or judgmental, a new world will be impossible because we’ll fail create it from within.

Any changes we’re able to make will be nullified shortly after, because we’ll fail to heal the underlying cause of the world’s broken condition; namely, the anger and greed we’ll continue to sustain. Continue reading

Higher and Higher – A Song by Wes Annac

This is a song I wrote, which I call ‘Higher and Higher’. I wrote the guitar, bass and lyrics, but I had to record the bass part with my guitar because my bass isn’t functional at the moment. The drumbeat used can be found here:


You cannot hide from what’s inside
The pain will rise, confront it try
To release those pains, just take it slow
Just let them know it’s time to go
We know on a level so deep, all is inside no need for sleep
In realms so pure tough me will weep, almighty rules, wicked men reap
The fruit of what they sowed, long time coming, their mind control
It rages so deep, but their plans won’t be completed

Higher and higher, we are climbing
Lighter and lighter, we’re arriving
So many trials all mixed in
To a false matrix, and as we exit this, the freedom bells start chiming

So what to do with all this pain
And is our world somewhat to blame
Or can all of this be explained
From a new perspective, awareness claimed
We understand the secrets of this game
Disconnection from the Source, we can show the way
Offer hope for the sleepy souls who’ve gone astray
The perils of this world they are not here to stay
A force for all that’s good and right will finally seize the day

Deeper and deeper we all travel
We don’t encounter the reaper, no, we unravel
All of the secrets of the laws of love as we all seek
To know ourselves and bring an end to this world’s misery

Because we aren’t all just here to survive
We’re here to feel, we’re here to strive
We’re here to love and share our light
To save the earth, take back our rights
Some of them might think we’re too naïve
Conditioned ones full of critique
Openness often condemned, yet we stay strong, spread the word, now let free spirits be

Because receptive minds will start to lead
Directing the awakened scene
Detecting the presence of evil, planting the seeds
Of all that’s good in right in the youth, they’ll be running things
Violence will not rule the streets when knowledge hits the communities
Keep the creative channel open
Feel the vibes, no need for slowing
Down when we can now get going
Time and patience are essential
Pick up the pencil, find your potential
Stay open, your heart is growing
Now let your love flow in

(Last verse repeated.)

My Prayer


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

To the Source, I pray that you be with us all in times of uncertainty.

To life, I pray that in time, you reveal your greatest secrets.

To the planet, I pray that you find peace, healing and stability.

For humanity, I pray that we see the light in the darkness and come to terms with our differences.

To the plant and animal kingdom, I pray that you forgive humans for what we’re doing to you. As strange as it sounds, we know not what we do.

To the billionaires pulling the strings in our society, I pray that you return to your heart and put a stop to the greed and wickedness. I pray you find compassion for those whose lives you’ve destroyed, confess your sins and embrace the justice coming your way, but it’s coming no matter what you do.

To these people’s victims, I pray you find forgiveness so you can move forward and make a better world.

To religious leaders and spiritual teachers, I pray you learn that love is the most important thing you can teach and remember to practice what you preach.


To their followers, I pray you learn to find God in yourself and be aware of your ability to instantly access higher states of consciousness where you’re one with your creator.

To my readers, I pray you never look to me or anyone else for what you can only find in yourself, because you’ll be unhappy and depleted of your authentic spirituality if you do.

To my friends and family, I pray you can forgive me for the times I’ve wronged you or made life harder for you.

Finally, for myself, I pray for daily guidance, insight and good vibes from the Source. I pray for food, water, a stable living situation for my family and whatever amount of money the Most High deems appropriate.

Most importantly, I pray for love to sweep the planet. I pray for people to see the direction in which the world is moving and make a change, and I pray that I can be the change this world needs despite my flaws and the fact that I’ve dropped the ball before.


I couldn’t tell you what kind of religious or spiritual value prayer has, but I can share what it does for me. Like writing, prayer is a form of meditation I can use to communicate with the Source and receive insight on things that are important to me, and it doesn’t have to be exclusive to religion.

I’m not religious, but I do think prayer has value and I utilize it often.

I make little prayers throughout the day instead of waiting until bed, and their spontaneity is one of the best things about them. I might thank the Most High for the food I’m about to eat or pray for guidance when I struggle, but this is enough to get the creator’s attention and receive valuable insight.

Source won’t express itself unless we request it, but when it does, it usually gives us exactly what we need.

This is one reason prayer is helpful, and it’s liberating to realize that you’re already constantly connected with God no matter how much outside noise seems to cover up the connection. For me, prayer illuminates it as much as meditation and creativity, and the best role to play in life is one that combines all three.


I’m not saying you should pray, because we all walk a unique path and what works for one might not work for another. However, if you struggle or you feel like the world could use some protection and good vibes, maybe open that channel to the Source through prayer and see if it helps.

If it doesn’t, you’ll know it isn’t right for you.

But if it does, you’ll have a new way to feel the love and send healing to the world. The power to heal the planet lives within us regardless of how we channel it, and it starts with an inner transformation that inspires us to help the world reflect the peaceful inner reality we’re rediscovering.

We can use meditation, prayer, creativity and so many other things to raise our consciousness while inspiring the changes the world needs, and if we willingly and thoroughly utilize these outlets, we’ll make it easier for everyone to see and embody the light.


You can spread the light by living it and expressing it in your every thought, word and action, and when you stop running from the darkness, you begin to learn from both. You learn to shed light on the darkness without letting it negatively affect you, and you become aware that the two opposing forces are one.

Let everyone who struggles find the love and guidance they need, because we’re on the verge of rediscovering the greatest spiritual secrets kept from mankind. We’re on the verge of an awakening, and prayer is one of many things that can speed up the inevitable rediscovery of our oneness with God.
