Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
What methods did you use to determine the accuracy of your perceived mind-reading ability?
 Quoting: Dr. Fringebucket 15958543


It is difficult to explain, I have not gone up to someone while i'm high and say , *is this what you are thinking?* I usually get high by myself.

But when I get high and Iím around people, all I have to do is look at them and they suddenly become beacons of thought expression, where every word and every movement they make is an echo in eternity, where mere words and movements are eternally powerful and significant. I become overwhelmed with whom they are in their thought life. I cannot read exact specific thoughts, I am only able to read general states of being, what that individual is going through in their life at the moment. The person becomes magnified several times over. Weed just makes me very sensitive to others.
 Quoting: sdavis642


Did you ever think that weed just alters YOUR state of being. You could be completely wrong about your assumptions of people. Question your assumptions. Yes, drugs are powerful, but to what end? You now believe you can read people's thoughts with little to no evidence supporting this? Is that Biblical?

Quitting can be tough. Good luck.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8512107


Thankyou. I have quit and relapsed. I always feel really crapy when i smoke weed, like im telling God that He isnt enough to be happy, its like the prodigal son leaving his fathers house before he could eat the feast prepared for him because he craves the pigs food he was eating.

and you are also right, all my thoughts when im stoned could be major deception. or it could be 90% truth and 10% lie, just how the devil likes to do it.

 Quoting: nocty


its not porn really, its lust. lust is bad for me, and i dont reccomend anyone lust. When i look at pron i sometimes see the woman not as a hot body, but as an innocent young girl who just wants to be loved. it breaks my heart. i cant bear to watch porn becasue of how crappy i feel after. but yet, just like weed, i crawl back to it like a dog returning to its vomit.

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
I used to play a lot of poker stoned. I could see right throuh the cards. My friends didnt believe me at first, so I would bet them and they could do anything they wanted shuffle wise to the cards. I was able to know the cards suit and number because I could see through them. I won alot of money off of them but they wont play against me anymore. Also, the Lord gave us weed, the devil is keeping it away from us. We could replace plastic, gas, food, clothing and the list goes on. The evil corporations are the ones keeping it illegal, not God. Good luck with your faith OP.
 Quoting: Freedom of Speech 14117105


hfExactly. The Bible talks about herbs yet people still call them demonic. If Weed was demonic it would be sold on every street corner all across this country. I guess people think pills, alcohol and porn are great while a natural plant is demonic.

The programming that has taken over our minds needs to be destroyed. Weed is natural and comes from God to remove the veil of secrecy. This is why it is illegal. The Machine cannot have people who can see past their BS so they create all this programming nonsense in order to scare the sheep.

weed is different for me than it is for others. I feel like what happens to me when im stoned is like sorcery; using it as a means of spiritual enhancement. If everytime i smoke i get strange and confusing visions, i am not seeking God, becasue my God is not a God of confusion.

If their heart tells them that the "brainwashing" is true, what can you say to them then? The way you present it, each person has the ability to determine truth for themselves, but then you look down your nose at what some people find when they look within? Do you think they don't know their own hearts? Do you think their beliefs, opinions and experiences will not clash with what your "heart" "tells" you? Looking inwardly for truth is solipsism.

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
I used to be a big pothead, now that I am a born again Christian; I have decided that weed isnít good for me, because the Holy Spirit is much better than any drug. I still smoke every once in a while because Iím struggling with the temptation. When I do smoke the spiritual realm becomes so strong that I can read people's thoughts and I get amazing understanding of spiritual concepts and knowledge that seems to flee once I sober up, but while Iím high I see demons, angels and I receive visions. Anyone else has this experience?
 Quoting: sdavis642


You are inviting demonic influences when you toke.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15961395


I know I am. Every time I buy weed and smoke, I become very spiritually opressed and I usually throw away the rest of the weed. Yet I always come back to it. Like there is a part of me that wants to be depressed. I was pretty much a 24/7 smoker before i became a christian.
 Quoting: sdavis642



(1 Corinthians 6:19-20) Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are Godís.

(Matthew 17:21) Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
its because you made a deal withyouselrf as well not to smoke it anymore and yet you brake the deal with yourself(holy spirit) and thats why you suffer,because you have created a conflict with youserlf and weed is trying to ask you wtf r u doing?

you know a quote taken out of the bible that says(and literary taken out of the bible as in deleted)

"he who sins against the father can be forgiven,also he who sins against the son can be forgiven,but he who sins against the holy spirit can not be forgiven neither in hell nor in heaven"

that means if you sin against yourself no one anywhere can help you.

Hey, I'm right there with you pal. Relapsing sucks, because you immerse yourself in the self-awareness of your own weakness. Eventually you have to be more dedicated to NOT experiencing that, than you are to the addiction and craving of the marijuana.

Eventually.

I actually wouldn't dismiss OPs claims. I too have had weird psychic experiences while on weed. I was able to sense the feelings of others, and through that know what they were thinking. I also had visions, especially visions of the future and events that were happening at the moment but far away. I also do wonder why this happens. I stopped smoking weed because I want to make sure that unseen influences are causing this or being attracted due to me smoking.

Anyone else has a good explanation?

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
Honestly, I was in your exact same position for a long time.

I still have serious sin issues, but with weed, God took the weight off my shoulders. I figured I loved God and Jesus for a year or so, but didn't let it effect me. A relationship I was in ended, and I was so depressed I hit up the church. I joined a community group. I admitted what I was going through, including my addiction (every day for 10 years....) to all of them. We prayed over it. It wasn't immediate, but things fell into place. After one particularly moving sermon, I went home and flushed the rest of my weed. It was intense.

Now the struggle continues, and often I want to say it was MY willpower that changed things, and often I want to say after a year I can go back and smoke a few times. But I have faith.

Don't beat yourself up or feel excessively guilty if you screw up. Just trust Christ and the Holy Spirit to heal you, as they promise to do. Pray, confess, have friends, get a support group, believe. You can do whatever you want.

Listen, it's always going to be hard. Some of my friends in the community group smoke! I go to parties with them and sit there like an ape wishing I could trust myself with weed, but I know I'm an addict. Don't listen to anyone else, don't let them influence you, just ask God to change you, take steps that show your good intentions and BELIEVE that He will be faithful.

ALSO: You probably know this already but GLP is not a place to ask for religious advice, unless you have not just a GRAIN, but an entire SHAKER of salt ready. Let me know if I'm being unclear...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8512107


How do you know those emotions are coming from the heart? Do any negative emotions come from the heart? Demonic? Does that sound like an impression generated by the heart? Does the heart warn your consciousness of demonic ideas? Or does the ego? To me, personally, that sounds like a religious 'damnation' and nothing more. Who is any other mortal to decide what's 'demonic' for you? He likened it to 'scorcery'... Who else has first hand training with 'scorcery' to be qualified to identity it?

I would say that in many cases a mind (ego) identified consciousness has difficulty discerning emotions between the heart and the ego (mind). Wouldn't you agree? How is an individual who feels frightful of such a thing identifying with his heart? Does intuition come from the mind or does it come from the HEART... Every negative emotion including fear comes from the ego - the part of you that is only concerned for your physical existence. Fear never originates from the heart.

To use of the word 'demons' or 'demonic' is not wise. It implies some 'external' force is acting and tells your consciousness that you have no control. Why on earth would you want to do that when you have all the HEART inside of you that you need to take back control of your consciousness and force the negative thoughts out once and for all????

-----------------------------

Sometimes in life, we don't always direct our emotions to the proper stimuli. That's just the way it often happens. There is NOTHING inherently demonic about marijuana - for anyone! If you don't like it and don't like the way it makes your mind & body feel, don't smoke it! Simple as that... You don't have to rationalize that you don't like it because it's 'demonic', just acknowledge that it's not for you. There are plenty of things I don't like doing either... Like punching myself in the groin. I just avoid doing that.

Sometimes in life, we don't always direct our emotions to the proper stimuli. That's just the way it often happens. There is NOTHING inherently demonic about marijuana - for anyone! If you don't like it and don't like the way it makes your mind & body feel, don't smoke it! Simple as that... You don't have to rationalize that you don't like it because it's 'demonic', just acknowledge that it's not for you. There are plenty of things I don't like doing either... Like punching myself in the groin. I just avoid doing that.

I think that acknowledging some things as inherently evil can come from the heart. It's fine and well to say that all that is good comes from our own hearts, but when you have to acknowledge the evil in the world, it becomes hard to trust the heart, not to mention the difficulty (in my opinion impossibility) of separating our ego from our "heart."

It's like the singer in the choir who tells the pastor "I think God (my heart...) wants me to have a solo this week." The pastor replies, "Well until He tells ME that, we'll stick to what we've got." Internal "heart" truth only leads to mass confusion and the justification of what we suspect is wrong, but want to do anyway (ie drugs, porn, jealousy, pride, etc...)

The greatest villains of all time have thought they were doing good. Their belief in their own heart, their purity of purpose, is the very thing that allows them to commit heinous acts, or convince others to.

I agree that marijuana is not demonic. I just disagree that you can look within to determine what is holy. It's OP's own inner struggle that leads him to betray his desires again and again as he goes back to smoke, despite not wanting to. His heart, his "momentary truth" tells him, "just one more time," even though he is trying to quit. The idea of "inner-truth" is betrayed by history and I just don't buy it. I'm not saying you give bad advice, just that you have a bad foundation for your advice.

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
Honestly, I was in your exact same position for a long time.

I still have serious sin issues, but with weed, God took the weight off my shoulders. I figured I loved God and Jesus for a year or so, but didn't let it effect me. A relationship I was in ended, and I was so depressed I hit up the church. I joined a community group. I admitted what I was going through, including my addiction (every day for 10 years....) to all of them. We prayed over it. It wasn't immediate, but things fell into place. After one particularly moving sermon, I went home and flushed the rest of my weed. It was intense.

Now the struggle continues, and often I want to say it was MY willpower that changed things, and often I want to say after a year I can go back and smoke a few times. But I have faith.

Don't beat yourself up or feel excessively guilty if you screw up. Just trust Christ and the Holy Spirit to heal you, as they promise to do. Pray, confess, have friends, get a support group, believe. You can do whatever you want.

Listen, it's always going to be hard. Some of my friends in the community group smoke! I go to parties with them and sit there like an ape wishing I could trust myself with weed, but I know I'm an addict. Don't listen to anyone else, don't let them influence you, just ask God to change you, take steps that show your good intentions and BELIEVE that He will be faithful.

ALSO: You probably know this already but GLP is not a place to ask for religious advice, unless you have not just a GRAIN, but an entire SHAKER of salt ready. Let me know if I'm being unclear...

Re: When I smoke weed I can read people's thoughts
It actually pains me to read some of the misconceptions being propagated in this thread. Please work to undo the brainwashing..... Please....
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


If their heart tells them that the "brainwashing" is true, what can you say to them then? The way you present it, each person has the ability to determine truth for themselves, but then you look down your nose at what some people find when they look within? Do you think they don't know their own hearts? Do you think their beliefs, opinions and experiences will not clash with what your "heart" "tells" you? Looking inwardly for truth is solipsism.

To quote the bard: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy

Obviously, I disagree with you on a fundamental level :)

How do you know those negative emotions are coming from the heart? Demonic? Does that sound like an impression generated by the heart? Does the heart warn your consciousness of demonic ideas? Or does the ego? To me, personally, that sounds like a religious 'damnation' and nothing more. Who is any other mortal to decide what's 'demonic' for you? He likened it to 'scorcery'... Who else has first hand training with 'scorcery' to be qualified to identity it?

I would say that in many cases a mind (ego) identified consciousness has difficulty discerning emotions between the heart and the ego (mind). Wouldn't you agree? How is an individual who feels frightful of such a thing identifying with his heart? Does intuition come from the mind or does it come from the HEART...

I have to respectfully disagree with you because we are at different stages of consciousness in our life, and therefore adopting different perspectives. Which is perfectly natural and acceptable.

No negative emotions originate from the heart. You don't sense the fear in things with your heart... That is not a heart identified emotion. Fear is a product of the ego. The ego is your worst enemy - the source of all the pain and suffering in your life. Every emotion that's negative for you is a product of the ego - , fear, doubt, judgement, hate, anger, sadness, etc....

When you completely internalize the conceptualization of a spiritual existence, you no longer identify with negative emotions. How can you be scared when you are consciously aware that you are eternal? It's not just something you think about in the back up your mind, but an everyday consciousness. When you get to that stage you have extreme difficulty arousing negative emotions into your consciousness. It becomes very easy interpret everything in your life for exactly what it is. Because you have an amazing sense of clarity and awareness about everything in life... The right decisions in your life resonate with your heart. The wrong decisions resonate with your ego. The path becomes clear...Trying to describe the feeling doesn't do it justice. It's something you have to go through yourself.
