Welp, I am still job hunting.
The awesome thing about California is that there are SO many opportunities here. The problem with California is that there are sooooo many people competing for the same opportunities.
As I have tweaked my resume´ about 400 times, something hilarious and awesome occurred to me.
The only thing I have more experience in, besides doing hair, (and having my heart smashed into a thousand pieces- but that doesn't really serve on a resume´ apparently) is consuming cannabis.
The other funny thing is that now that I live in a state where cannabis is legal, my experience and knowledge of the plant and the ways that I have used it to help with my anxiety and depression, are actually wildly beneficial and marketable.
AND! My strong desire to help people expand their consciousness, find emotional balance and wellness, and tap into spiritual growth are aligned with using cannabis as well.
I am not trying to convince you of anything. I just thought you would be curious to see what I have been up to.
And since you have been here with me from the very beginning, I feel supported and held by you in all my endeavors. And announcing it to you first feels less intimidating. It's like a soft opening. ;)
So, I am creating a cannabis education and coaching company, called Balancing Cannabis, designed to educate people on the many ways plant medicine can alleviate suffering, and facilitate self-awareness and emotional wellness. This will be in the form of in-person workshops, seminars and online content.
I will also be working with people one-on-one to offer advice and support as they navigate a sea of readily available, yet often intimidating products.
Eventually, I'll be hosting emotional wellness with cannabis retreats for women! (Woot, woot!) And as the laws continue to change in our country about cannabis, the opportunities become infinitely abundant!
I am not selling any products or trying to convince anyone of anything. I am just creating a platform for people who are curious, but perhaps nervous about trying cannabis. People who want to learn more and get some real, unbiased information.
I want to destigmatize the use of cannabis. I want to destigmatize mental illness.
I want to create a safe space for people to actually learn about the plant, the science behind it, what is happening in your body when you consume it, and more importantly. the many ways it can help people.
All that being said, I know that cannabis is still a controversial topic. I have an incredibly diverse group of people on this email list and that follow me online. I am sensitive to your perceptions and opinions about cannabis.
I have also had to work through overcoming a lot of my own fear and shame around sharing the fact that I use cannabis because of cultural and religious conditioning around the use of the plant.
But I truly believe in the medicinal properties of cannabis. It has been the only thing that has consistently helped me through episodes of depression and I continue to learn so much about myself whenever I consume cannabis. I have witnessed the ways it helps people overcome chronic pain, mental distress, digestion issues and so many others.
So, for any of you that are interested in following along or supporting me on this new endeavor of mine, I kindly ask that you do a few things:
1. Click here to sign up for my Balancing Cannabis newsletter.
2. Follow @balancingcannabis on IG and invite 1 (or 5) of your cannabis-friendly friends to do the same. (there's nothing on there yet, so don't be alarmed haha)
3. Engage with me on that new IG once it goes live. Ask me questions in the comments, tag your friends, & share my stuff.
If you're not down to clown, then no worries. This email list will remain my random thoughts and musings about love, life and our beautiful Creator.
I must say however, if you carry any judgement against cannabis or people who consume it, I really encourage you to do some research.
Cannabis is not for everyone. And that's ok. I want to help create a world where people are supported to find their own path to wellness, regardless of what is on that path. To each her own, amiright?
If you're putting yourself out there and being brave, I am cheering for you.
If you're starting from scratch again, trying to create the life you want, I am cheering for you.
If you're lost in some dark hole somewhere, wondering what is going on, I am cheering for you.
And above all, I am cheering loud as heck for my damn self.
Love you guys!
Email me back! Let me hear from ya. Down to clown?? or Nahhhh?? Love ya no matter what!
