Cannabis for Starseeds, or Why I Stopped Smoking Weed


Lest you misunderstand this article as an attempt to pass judgment or virtue-signal, let me open with a confession. As both a Canadian and someone who has struggled with depression since a young age, I have a long history of using marijuana medicinally as well as recreationally. 


For many years weed has become a ubiquitous and socially acceptable recreational drug, and even more so now as it rides the coattails of its widely recognized medical efficacy and subsequent legalization in Canada as well as several US states.


In no way do I dispute cannabis’ miraculous plant medicine, and yet this doesn’t mean I think we should all be consuming it. I’m talking specifically of cannabis that you use to get stoned…for fun.  


Again, I reiterate that I am by no means anti-weed. A weed smoker for many years, I gave up smoking it only when it became undeniable that its effects on me as were far outweighing the benefits.


I’m not gonna lie, I was really sad to have to give up cannabis (alcohol wasn’t that bad). Especially because near the end my use was infrequent and very light.


But as a Starseed Lightworker committed to realizing my full potential in this incarnation, it had to be done.


It’s my desire to be really transparent about my own story with cannabis so you can have a point of reference. If you have been on the fence about whether you should continue to consume it, I hope my story can inspire you to quit. 


It’s my opinion that once you get to a certain point in your vibrational frequency, you find that you just don’t NEED it like you used to. This could be because you’ve undergone so much inner work, physical purification and alchemical transformation that you’ve healed from the disease that caused the symptoms that weed helped to mitigate.


(Again, I’m not referring to CBD oil but consuming cannabis with more THC.) 


Then it becomes a question of continuing to use it recreationally. In that case you will know when it’s time to quit. You’ll know because you’ll start to worry if it is hindering your Starseed Mission. Or maybe your process will start to parallel mine.


I said that I quit because I realized that the effects were far outweighing the benefits. Which effects do I mean exactly? Where do I begin…


Dazed & Confused


As I got closer to full light body activation, it became clear to me that the use of marijuana or alcohol, even in the slightest amount, would send my vibrational frequency plummeting for days afterwards.


During its use I’d feel euphoric, clear, expanded, and all of my chakras would be happily aligned and blissfully receptive. But as little as two puffs off a pen or joint would leave me feeling like I’d been hit by a truck for up to three days afterwards, such a hazy residue did it leave me with.


It didn’t matter if I was smoking sativa or indica, organic or non-organic, consuming even the tiniest amounts would slow me down.


After much deliberation, research, and discussion with my guides, I came to the conclusion that me and weed were no longer a frequency match.


Cannabis & Playing Small


I really knew something had started to change because I was experiencing a newfound guilt the day after using it. Discussing this with my Collective Pleiadean Guide, it was explained to me that there was no external moral judgment for the consumption of cannabis.

Since my Higher Self wished to integrate even more into my physical vessel, IT was the one sending me messages that it didn’t want me to use it anymore. 

It would do this through my emotions.


HS was trying to tell me that weed and alcohol distorted my ability to connect to it and feel it fully in my body, moment to moment. The shame I felt after consuming it was merely a symptom of the disappointment we were both feeling from this hazy barrier. My negative emotion was meant to signal me that something was awry.


You see, my HS wanted me to merge with more of it. This requires raising the vibration of also the physical body.

(My lessons at this time concern learning how to change my physical body to be able to hold more consciousness. I am becoming the Higher Self. This is the opportunity available to me during this long awaited Ascension gateway that will span my lifetime and many more years beyond.)

So as you can see I was sabotaging the opportunity to merge with more of my Higher Self via a drug-induced barrier. 


My depressed mood and “cobwebs” feeling meant I couldn’t reach as high or deep states in meditation for days after, didn’t have as many heart-expanding rushes of energy or downloads and couldn’t connect to Higher Dimensional Beings when I wanted to channel. It was as if the signal was blocked.


I noted that this was consistent with the feeling of a blocked signal when I would do readings for chronic weed smokers and alcoholics. It’s like a blanket on their energy field and all I see is a thick, grey cloud. I can’t download instantly for alcoholics or weed smokers like I can for others.


By playing small, I also mean that I was going 2 steps forward and 1 step back.  I wasted a lot of time working to raise my vibration back up to where it was before I’d smoked. Sometimes I even felt like I was helping the Black Hats. How happy they must have been, knowing I wasn’t stepping into my power; that I was just cutting myself off at the knees? 


Now, I know some of you will comment that weed has helped you to raise your frequency, that it keeps your anxiety at bay or helps to open your chakras. I’m not saying that weed doesn’t or can’t have its usefulness, I’m saying that, based on my observations, at some point in your energetic Ascension process as a Starseed, it may become a hindrance to the activation of your Light Body. Again, this is simply a matter of frequency, not a moral judgment.


In my usual spirit of thoroughness, here are some of the other ways that I’ve found marijuana kept me playing small.


Cannabis & Motivation


Using cannabis can reduce motivation through Dopamine sensitization.The more dopamine you’re used to releasing (through consuming THC), the higher tolerance you have for dopamine. That means doing things that don’t produce as much dopamine (as smoking weed) feels boring. So you get lethargic and don’t want to do them. Here’s a great video that explains this really well.


Cannabis Codependency & Autopilot


As a budding Spiritual Master, you are meant to be conscious.  Being able to say NO to the lower sensual pleasures of the 1st and 2nd chakras is an activity in will and the power of your mind over programs and addictions, which are automated behaviours. Abstinence is a sign of advanced will and elevated consciousness.  If you can’t say no, that’s a problem.  


Cannabis Numbs you to Feeling and Being Present


When you’re high, you’re not really present in the moment. Instead you’re in an altered state, fueled by dopamine. It’s easy to get side-tracked when you’re stoned, and depending on what (or how much) you’ve smoked, you could be close to being alseep! Being stoned all the time can numb your feelings in the same way as psychological repression. In fact, many people start smoking weed because it alleviates anxiety. Naturally, weed helps to dull feelings of boredom, too. All this can lead to a dimming of your emotional intelligence, which is essential for communicating with your HS. This is because it ‘levels out’ your ability to know the subtleties of the different emotions you’re feeling.


Not to mention, switching to the ‘party frequency’ is an easy way to escape uncomfortable feelings that come when we’re triggered, alone with our thoughts, sad, worried, anxious, shameful, or otherwise working to alchemize the Shadow or what we still need to transmute in our own and collective DNA for the benefit of humanity learning to live from the heart.


Incapacitates as you become more sensitive


As you progress in your Light Body Activation, you’ll notice that it’s eventually untenable to keep partying. The clearer and lighter you get, you’ll either start to become totally incapacitated by drugs and alcohol or overstimulated to the point where you can’t sleep all night because your energy is so sensitive to the drug.

Messes with Light Body Activation

As previously discussed, since the frequency of your Higher Self is very high (it runs Divine Source/ Sophia/ Kryst  Consciousness through it!) it requires that the Hardware (your physical body) match its frequency. If you’re serious about merging with your Higher Self (or higher dimensional selves), you also need to bring into balance your physical and energetic bodies. Your mental and spiritual bodies become very active when you’re high. You tend to become less aware and engaged in the physical body and physical world in favour of ‘higher planes’. 

How I personally experience this is by feeling  MORE stagnation, listnessness, dreaminess, and finding myself with a lack of energy and follow through when my body and mind are out of balance.

Takes You Off-Task


Smoking weed can keep you distracted by things that you might not otherwise find very interesting, with less energy and focus for your Starseed Mission to embody Spiritual Mastery and create your Heaven on Earth. If you’re going out partying or spending hours playing video games, watching mindless YouTube videos and stuffing your face with junk food when you’re high, you’re not exactly on task now, are you?



A Friendly Pep-Talk 



If you’re thinking, “But, Debra, I’m not interested in Spiritual Mastery”, then I’m going to call you out and say I think you have succumbed to a lower dimensional timeline set by the illuminati/ Cabal or you’re simply refusing to realize or accept your mission and why you came to Earth this time around.



No-one likes being told but to do. But honestly? This is NOT the incarnation for anyone to play small. You are ALL needed. We have an important job to do. Especially since the Galactics aren’t just gonna land and do it for us. We are them in the future! We are here now to do the job.



We Starseeds came here to Ascend. Not just ourselves but to carry others with us who don’t ‘have the codes’. We are waking the others up with our elevated consciousenss.

We are evolving to become living Stargates for Ascension on earth.

I hate to break it to you, but if you want to house more of your higher consciousness, you might have to fiercely “curate” your use of weed or give it up altogether. 





As far as I’m understanding it, 2020 is the year many Starseeds are being called to step into their power and be LIVING examples of the Ascended Energy we have been upgrading into!



If you think that smoking weed might be getting in the way of you expressing the full potential of who you are, then in the spirit of Self-Love, then I hope my experience inspires you to follow through on your hunch.
