You are currently viewing Addictions


Many have been plagued with addictions of various types since early childhood.  Some have developed addictions such as alcohol, drugs and overeating as a medication to ease unresolved emotional pain. Resolve those pains, change your behaviors and your life will unfold. This may sound simplistic, but it really is all that needs to be done. Release yourself from the feelings of being a victim or punishing yourself for what others have chosen to do.

Some have chosen food substances such as sugar or coffee as their addictions. Perhaps life was not sweet while growing up or perhaps a burst of energy is needed, to replenish the energy spent in non-beneficial ways. Many have become addicted to cigarettes due to the temporary relaxed state they bring or because of wanting to be like their peers. All are reasons locked in beliefs that are not for your highest good.

Others have chosen sex, careers and extreme sports in order to gain an emotional high. Often, this results when a person is spending an enormous amount of time and energy involved in things that do not satiate his/her passion. Look at obsessive thoughts and actions that come to your attention. Sometimes, they are past life issues triggered by current events. However, most often, they stem from unresolved emotional trauma which began in early childhood. Some addictions are created through habits learned from one’s family and friends. However, if you cannot stop the behavior, this is an indication of a deeper problem.

Take notice of where you place your time and energy.

If these habits are not in compliance with your highest good, you would do well to change them. Check your mental health. Bring to your attention any incessant thoughts and behaviors. You have the power to change the beliefs and the behaviors that leave you drained or cause you to feel shame and guilt.

Know that you are worthy of love, perfect and pure in all ways, always. This is hard for many to believe. However, look around and notice others who are happy and full of joy. Ask them how they came to have a life they enjoy. Seek ways that feel fitting for you. There is nothing you cannot overcome. Face your addictions and enjoy your recovery as you rediscover your true Essence!
