Addictions, some Metaphysical Explanations

addictions 2

I’ve done some research over the years on addictions, in my case food, and in my family’s case alcohol.  Much of what I have read is science and psychology based, which has value by itself.  While the biological process certainly does play a role in how we feel and what we do, as does the mind, I wanted to know the spiritual side because I do know that is a piece of the puzzle as well.

During a reading I received that addictions and cravings for what you are addicted to sometimes arise when you are trying to shut something or someone up, like a feeling or a voice.  What you are trying to shut up may be anxiety, voices in your mind you don’t want to hear such as your ego or someone else’s, mixed in with your angels, guides or God.  You may be trying to numb a feeling such as grief or a heart break you haven’t quite healed from yet. Go here on my blog on how to heal grief.  If the divine is trying to warn you of something, this may cause some anxiety, from the higher vibration as well as other factors, and that is usually an indication to stop what you are doing and do a self check.  It was explained to me the higher the vibration, the more anxiety you may feel, particularly if you are not in the light.  More to come of this in my book to be published hopefully in 2019.

The recommendation is to stop. Stop. Do nothing. Let the anxiety ground.  Then just chill. Do Nothing for a while. 5-15 minutes of do nothing time. Don’t look at your phone, sit or lay down and do nothing.  If you are sensitive enough you will feel the energy go down from your head all the way down to you feet.  After the 15 minutes, thank your angels, guides and God for being there to bring them forth, imagine a while light around you and ask for guidance or whatever the problem seems to be. The problem may be you’re working too hard or doing too much. You may be using the addiction to get away from worries or work.  Its time to do nothing and receive guidance.

The other metaphysical reason for an addiction seems to be a combo of other people asking for more money and abundance as well as your actions in the past.  As others ask for more money, you may “answer the call” as I put it to buy what they are selling.  What you’ve enjoyed buying in the past is typically what you get pulled in buying again, essentially your actions and law of attraction.  So if you’ve felt happy buying chocolate cake, tortilla chips, going out to eat, alcohol etc. that may be what you are pulled into buying again.  This is with the combination with the physical and mental highs you receive from these actions.

Other non-metaphysical reasons for addictions usually involve serotonin, opioids and dopamine’s affect on your brain.  An excellent book that describes this is “The End of Overeating…” by David Kessler, MD.  Intellectually understanding why you feel a certain way can help you to stop yourself in your tracks, rise above the problem and find another solution.

Addiction provides an escape.  An escape from work, worries, distraction of the mind, what we don’t want to look at, as well as a mental high.  You are ignoring something, many times something deep inside.  My recommendation is to stop and do nothing, grief healing, or look into changing habits (actions).

Soul Mates and the Stages of Grief

Photo source: Toolshero.com

Sometimes all you have to do is go through a rejection by someone in order to enter into a grieving period. Many of my clients have been rejected by those they feel are either their soulmates or twin flames. I’ve noticed that many people go through the stages of grief when they are rejected by someone they are attracted to, interested in or in love with. The problem is I don’t think they recognize that are going through the stages, instead they’re just feeling they’re emotions and reacting.

The denial stage is obvious. It’s essentially when you’re in denial and you can’t believe what just happened to you. Sometimes there’s a shock stage before denial but the denial stage is very real. It prevents you from seeing what is really happening, often times our ego wall might come up and we won’t see from the other person’s perspective. Next comes anger which is usually from being in a place of the ego reacting to getting rejected and trying to make up another story (they have issues, it is their fault, something is wrong with them) as well as lashing out at whoever rejected you. This can be in varying degrees, some people may not get that angry and instead get sad (low self esteem) and some people might start thinking about revenge. Bargaining comes around when someone often thinks that this is the only one they have a chance to be with or they’re not going to find someone else that they have a strong feelings for, which is not true, we have multiple soul mates. This can be a very embarrassing, uncomfortable stage that I don’t wish on anyone. They may turn to God or psychics for extreme solutions that they may feel embarrassed about later or when they realize what they asked for or tried to do. During this stage I will often put them in their love-interest shoes. I ask them how would you like it if somebody tried to force you to love them using God or spirits if you were not initially interested? They all calm down at that point and answer that they wouldn’t like it very much. It is an eye opener.

Then I usually share with them a more realistic solution. There’s some excellent books out there such as “The Like Button” that tells you how to gradually get somebody to be more comfortable in your presence or be curious about you. A lot of times this is just being around them, being in the same room, not necessarily always talking to them. A great way to explain this is to use the example of a deer and a bunny in a prairie. When the bunny first enters the prairie the deer might get spooked and run off. Overtime the bunny continues to enter the prairie but stays at a distance, not threatening the deer. This lets the deer know that the bunny is not dangerous because over time the bunny is not actually doing anything harmful. Slowly, the bunny can get closer without spooking the deer. I highly recommend “The Like Button” as well as Dale Carnegie’s “How to Make Friends and Influence People”. Some people may get spooked when you first show that you’re interested in them but it is possible to come back in a less scary manner and over time they can become curious about you, and more comfortable around you. You may become friends or you may become something more, this may just depend on a number of variables on both sides.

If you feel like you’re going through any of these stages of grief I highly recommend that you go through a healing process where you can get to the acceptance stage. I usually call an ascended Master such as Jesus, Mary, or Buddha as well as Archangel Artiya’il while laying down on my bed and ask them to help me get to the acceptance stage with whatever I’m struggling with at that time. Wait and feel much of the healing at the bottom of your lungs to clear before returning to your day.  When the soreness or feeling in your lungs dissipate the healing is done.  This can help push you past the stages of bargaining, anger and depression and into a more peaceful place. When you get to this peaceful place you no longer feel this urge or anguish over wanting to change the situation at any means possible. The sadness and depression go away. Then you’re more open to other options and no longer have that heart block that prevents you from seeing them or considering them.

Psychic Medium Andrea

Prophets and Psychic Mediums, is there a difference?

Image source: Jesus.Christ.org

I had a client last night asking me if it was sinful as a Christian to believe in and talk to psychics. I reminded her that many people in the Bible, including many of the saints in Catholicism, were prophets, which is an old time-y way to say psychic. Noah knew there would be a flood before anyone else, Jesus knew that Judas would betray him beforehand, and Jesus even knew he would be crucified and asked God to remove this from him under an olive tree. Don’t forget about the miracle of Fatima in 1917, which had thousands of witnesses, and Catholics established a special festival and day around.

Psychics have been around for millennia, predicting everything from the weather, deaths, wars and births. In fact many of the saints and ascended masters are psychic! They were predicting things all the time and receiving messages from the other side in the form of booming voices and visions of angels. The vatican keeps The Prophecy of the Popes in their archives among many other references to prophecies. Think of how many times an angel or other being appeared to those in the bible; Archangel Gabriel to Mary (kinda a big announcement), the burning bush to Moses, a voice to Saul who later turned into Pope Paul and started the church.

Kind of ridiculous if you really think about it for people to think that psychics are evil or wrong.

I think what happened is we revere or put the word “prophet” on a pedestal. Then down the line we created a new word, “psychic”, which conjures images of homeless rogues in red carriages and hoop earrings. The image is slightly ridiculous. Also don’t forget Saul who was a bit on the naughty side turned into Paul after hearing God. He turned his life around. You don’t have to be a saint from birth to hear God or your angels.

So next time you feel a bit bad about going to a psychic, remind yourself of all the visions and booming voices in the bible. The caution is just society or the culture you were raised in, not because you shouldn’t listen to what your angels and guides are telling you.

I’ve had dreams that came true within 24 hours of having them. Two of the most notable is having a dream of being in a plane crash 24 hours before a plane disappeared in the news over the mediterranean sea and having a dream of my mother dying 24 hours before her first heart attack. During a reading my maternal grandmother came to me clearly, telling me to teach my mother about energy healing 24 hours before she fell and broke numerous bones on a cruise. I have closeted friends who also hear God or have visions, afraid to come out of their shell because of a cultural taboo around psychics. I think there are many closeted metaphysical people because of the fear to be labeled “crazy”. I hope with the popularity of Long Island Medium and others that the judgement against speaking with those crossed over will be rectified.

Buttered Spinach and Creamy Avocado Bowl Recipe

Not a difficult recipe, I intuitively came up with this snack and it is a very healthy 80 calories to boost your energy and end hunger. Keto, low carb, no carb and paleo friendly (sans butter and parm).

1 cup spinach

1/4 avocado diced

1/2 cup broccoli florets

1/2 tbsp butter (optional)

1 tbsp shaved parmesan

Salt and pepper to taste

The quickest way to put this together is to microwave the spinach and broccoli topped with the butter and parmesan for 1 minute on high. If you are going without dairy, you can boil both greens in some water until the broccoli is bright green. If using dairy, stir the spinach after removing from microwave. Dice avocado and put on top of the spinach and broccoli mix.

So satisfying, all 3 greens are healthy and hunger suppressing vegetables. Spinach and avocados act like diuretics so help you to lose water weight. Great for after workout or as a mini meal.

Caesar Salad Dressing Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste (found near the canned tuna in the store)
  • 1 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until mixed and smooth.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe, Gluten Free

This is a lovely, rich filling recipe for those of you on carb reduction meal plans such as keto, South Beach, etc. Gluten free, low carb. I had this in a New Orleans restaurant and decide to make it home for myself.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream

Tsp of garlic, minced

1/2 cup spinach leaves

1 tsp parsley

Ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup portabella mushrooms

Diced tomato

Fish or chicken

Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute your garlic and mushrooms. Add your quarter cup of cream or half-and-half. I find half and half to be rich enough for me but you can add heavy cream if you would like it to be creamier. Add other spices and wilt the spinach in the sauce. A squeeze of lemon could be added here if you wish but I find it’s not necessary and not part of the original recipe.

Pour over chicken and shrimp, fish and crab meat, or fish and shrimp. This goes great on vegetables as well.

Gluten Free Lasagna Recipe

Working on reducing the processed carbohydrates in your meal plans? This is a hearty meal that is full of flavor.

5 portabella mini mushtooms

1 tbsp basil

1 tbsp oregano

1 tbsp parsley

1/4 cup onion diced

2 cloves garlic

1 small whole fat ricotta cheese (<8 oz)

Saute your garlic and onions lightly in olive oil. Brown your beef, mix in the onions, garlic and spices. Add about 1/3 of marinara and mix.

Heat oven to 375 degree degrees Fahrenheit. In a baking dish layer the zucchini in thin strips, smear the ricotta on the zucchini. Top with sliced mushrooms, meat mixture and any other vegetables you prefer. Add another layer and top it all with marinara, then cheddar cheese and parmesan. Bake for 20 mins covered in foil, remove foil, then bake for another 10 minutes.

Bacon & Swiss Mustard Chicken with Mushrooms Recipe

Keto, low carb, no carb friendly!

1 chicken breast

2 bacon slices

Diced tomato

A slice of red onion

Swiss cheese slice

3/4 cup slices portabella mushrooms

1 cup raw spinach

1 tbsp mustard (boars head preferred)

2 tbsp Parmesan shavings

1tbsp butter

Saute your chicken, mushrooms and bacon in butter. When your chicken is browned on one side, flip it, along with the mushrooms and bacon. When the 2nd side of your chicken is starting to brown, put the swiss cheese and parmesan on top and cover for 1 minute. Uncover and place the bacon and mushrooms in a paper towel to soak up the grease. Saute your red onion quickly while your bacon and mushrooms are drying. Place your chicken over a bed of spinach, salt and pepper to taste. Top with dried bacon, mushrooms, red onion and diced tomatoes. Either squeeze the mustard in a zig zag pattern on top or put off to the side for dipping. Enjoy!

Still Depressed?

Most likely you are going through the five stages of grief and have stopped at depression. After a time of grieving and/or denial in some cases you can get stuck on the depression stage. Without really fully getting out of depression you avoid your feelings either by eating, alcohol or some sort of avoidance. You can get stuck in the depression stage by finding an avoidance method and go through another cycle bringing you back to depression. There is a way out of this cycle without going through a prolonged depression stage for those ready to really let go of a soulmate, death or loss and move on. My recommended method is Theta healing which I provide over distance, Skype or phone here www.feathersinfinity.com. It can be faster than other methods. Another method is to ask God, an Ascended Master like Jesus, Mary or Buddha, and Archangel Artiya’il to help you get past the stage of depression and into acceptance or beyond as quickly as possible. Like a meditation, lay there and watch, feel the healing happen until the bottoms of your feet feel heavy. Your feet feeling heavy is an indication that the healing has ended and you can go about your day. After this was revealed to me I felt significantly better. This can be done for pets, those that have passed as well as relationships. If you need more help you can find me through my website and schedule a reading or healing with me at www.feathersinfinity.com.
