You probably have succumbed to an addictive behavior in the past. For some of us, our personal resolve is so great that all we need to do is to say, “I quit,” and we don’t do it again. For others, overcoming addictive behavior can be a struggle, sometimes a life-long struggle.
Some of us have the personal strength and fortitude to quit engaging in a particular activity which might not be in our best interest using little more than sheer determination and integrity. If you’ve done this, you might have simply said to yourself, “I said I wouldn’t do it, so I won’t” when faced with the opportunity to reengage in the addictive behavior.
Then there are others who have a more difficult time with it. A first blush, you might consider these people as weak, especially if you’ve easily overcome an activity in the past. But the truth is, these people who struggle with addiction are actually very powerful at manifesting.
We are energetic beings and our bodies resonate at a particular frequency based on the desires of our heart. People can study this phenomenon for years to try to master their vibrational frequency in order to rise to heightened state of awareness and love.
Whatever your vibrational frequency is set for, easily attracts the opportunities and things which are a vibrational match for the frequency you are maintaining.
For instance, if you are mostly in a state of mind where you think, “I never have enough money to make the ends meet,” you will attract situations and things to match the vibration of your thoughts. If these thoughts are commonly prevalent, you will find this the basis of your life, constantly struggling with your lack of resources.
People who desire to change their frequency and raise their vibration can do so my many methods starting with the way they think, because your thoughts set the tone of your vibration. For some, this comes easily, for others, they could use a little help.
Tools are available via coaching, counseling, various therapies, social groups, religions, and drugs for those who need a hand getting from where they are to where they want to be.
Religion is a powerful frequency adjuster. I started by work in the ministry in a Christian drug and alcohol program helping teens overcome their addictions. This method, still today, has the lowest recidivism rate of any addiction treatment. God is a powerful intervention for addiction, or for people who want to change their lives from one lifestyle to another.
Having a propensity for addictive behavior is a common indication the addict is compensating for some fear, pain, or trauma by numbing it with the addiction which distracts one’s consciousness enough to make it through life ignoring the things from the past, so they can just keep moving along through life the best they can.
Addicts do not sacrifice their quality of life due to their addictions but by their inability to deal with the underlying issues from which they are fearful. Which may be the underlying cause of death by natural causes.
It’s easy to blame addictions on trends of family, culture, personality, brain activity, DNA, or any other popular trend of the day which justifies addictive behavior. But as those of us who are active in the transformative work of overcoming addictive behavior know, addiction is the unconscious preferred method of coping with underlying, deep inner wounds which are buried and left to fester inside.
Addictions help to soothe the pain from these deep inner wounds. For those who have ceased to participate in a particular addiction, if they have not dealt with the inner wound(s) which caused the patient to seek relief in addiction, they are likely to replace the former addiction with another addiction.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of judging and ranking addictions, as some addictive behaviors are more socially acceptable than others. For instance, it’s more socially acceptable to be addicted to alcohol than crack cocaine. Or it might be considered to be better to be addicted to food than cigarettes.
The true freedom that comes from overcoming addictions is in the liberation which comes from identifying, dealing with and clearing the shadows, hidden traumas, and wounds from our past.
The most effective surgical tools for cutting out these pervasive inner infected psychological wounds (which are potentially more dangerous than any known disease) are forgiveness and love.
Overcoming addictive behaviors can be the key to eliminating the blockages which might be preventing you from achieving your highest and best.
Doing this deep inner work can lead to living a life of love and changing your vibrational frequency. This leads to a massive change of life and love enabling you to live a better life, your best life and making the world a better place in this high state of love.
