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).

How can I change my eating habits?

I was in the same situation not too long ago. I had to lose some weight and every diet that was effective required some sort of salad everyday if not every meal. So how do you go from loving sandwiches, meat and carbs to salad? I can tell you from personal experience that it can be done and over time you’ll find you’ll start craving salads too. The key is to make it fun for you and to transition slowly.  What I mean by transitioning is start by integrating the foods you now love into the salad. For me, I love cheesesteaks so I started off making these big cheesesteak salads, with real steak, cheese, red onion and a balsamic dressing. I got the idea from a cafe I used to frequent. They had this salad on their menu and I started making it from home. Eventually you’ll learn to integrate all kinds if your favorite things into salads, like tuna or chicken salad, cranberries, sunflower seeds, olives, hummus, fajita meat and cheese. Eventually you’ll be able to have less and less meat and cheese and your waistline will show the results of your ingenuity. Need more help to control the cravings because you know they come from more than just the food?  I have a special energy healing technique that I’ve used on myself and I’m willing to help you too.  Visit me at www.feathersinfinity.com and give me a call.  I provide this healing over the phone or in person.  I’ve lost120 pounds so far, and so can you.
