Santa Maria, Ganja Ma
What an ally this feminine plant spirit has been for me, as I’ve grown into the woman I am today. She has provided me with healing, with opening my mind and with the material energy to live the life of my dreams, grounding that life in this physical plane and having the means to fulfill the work needed, to live in this way and share my gifts. She has brought me back to the Earth mother, PachaMama, and helped me to awaken to my true essence and understand my purpose here in this lifetime in human form. She has shown me how to live in tune with the natural rhythms of earth, moon and sun; how to honor the seasons and move with them nomadically, following my heart around the globe and sharing deep connections with those who walk in a similar way. She has brought gratitude into my life, self love and care. She has inspired me creatively through music, writing, dancing, and yoga, she has nurtured me as I face my shadows, reminding me to trust in the cosmic Flow, in the wisdom of power plants.
My journey with this plant has been a privileged and sacred one. She has taught me about overconsumption, unconscious use, and escapism, as well as conscious, intentional and healthy communion with her guidance and teachings.
I have never been more fulfilled from my relationship with this medicine, as I am today. I appreciate the years of learning to navigate with this enchantress and I love so much the sensitivity I’ve developed with her and that we can so deeply connect in the most subtle of ways. I am SO grateful for this medicine, I await the day that she is free to grow anywhere and everywhere around the globe, healing our planet and the current environmental crisis, healing human bodies and minds through her tenderness, and allowing all who are incarcerated for their relationship with her, to walk free as is their right as a human on this Earth.

I am grateful
