Addiction is common – very common actually. So first and foremost, if you currently struggle with it I want for you to know that you are not alone (at all). Whether it’s an addiction to shopping, drugs, sex, food, unhealthy relationships, or cigarettes, addiction plays a roll in just about everyone’s life at some time or another.
I’ve personally dealt with addiction on many different levels. These personal experiences combined with my Spiritual knowledge allow me to view it all a little differently. When I see someone struggling with addiction I see a soul that has lost its way. I see layers and layers of unhealed traumas. I see someone who is desperate to feel good, but doesn’t know what real happiness feels like. I see someone who is not in their right mind. I see the aftermath of what happened because they held in their emotions and didn’t forgive or therapeutically release them in order allow a healing process.
I have seen all outcomes – those who have taken the easy road and traded in their life for an addiction, those who didn’t stop fighting and rose above and conquered it, and those who have lost the battle altogether and are no longer alive. I’m grateful to say that I am among those who who never stopped fighting and conquered addiction on several occasions. And if you are currently struggling with it yourself, I want you to know that there is a way out and YOU CAN do this. I promise you.
