Would you like to look at your (and others’) addictive behaviors with fresh eyes, a clear mind & an open heart?
Because the word ‘addiction’ is charged with programmed associations, they are often seen as an impediment to happiness.
Essentially an addiction is anything we do to avoid feeling, albeit temporarily.
We are compelled beyond our conscious control to turn to food, alcohol, drugs, shopping, gambling, television, sex, our phones, work, etc. to distract or numb ourselves from challenging emotional states. Even behaviors that are deemed ‘healthy’ like exercise, food discipline, helping others and spirituality can be a way of bypassing emotions.
What if addictions were a form of intelligence that,
when we are in right relationship with them,
can serve as a powerful and maybe essential ally
on the path of awakening to our true nature?
Are you sometimes mystified as to why you make the choices you do, even though, when you’re honest with yourself, they don’t put you in touch with the sense of well-being you so deeply long for?
- Discover how your unconscious drives choices and behaviors, and how to allow the unconscious to become conscious, and therefore subject to evolution.
- Notice how Life in it’s great generosity & compassion is always bringing the unconscious forward as an answer to our original prayer for wholeness.
- Learn about embodiment as a simple way to catch addictive behavior before it gains momentum.
- Gain perspective on others’ addictions to set yourself free.
Addictions when approached gently & mindfully can guide us to greater awareness of our true needs.
In order to re-awaken your connection to soul and empower moment to moment effortless nourishing, authentic & meaningful choices you will experience:
- Anchoring in your deepest nature through guided inner explorations.
- Using your current relationship with your body, addictive behaviors & associated feelings as doorways into the source of true inner guidance.
- Orienting towards your original wildness & the freedom to feel in order to gently awaken forgotten soul qualities like dynamic ease, creativity & natural discipline.
- Gently turning back towards the unintegrated energies that tie up your capacity for clear & authentic seeing, and welcome them back into the folds of your awareness to fuel joyful & life affirming choices.
In the Soul Coach Primer for Addictions you explore the reality that your inner fulfilment compass is available now & every moment and that you have the capacity to connect with it to access:
- your inborn relaxed & open state;
- gentleness towards your humanity so that you can bring kindness even when you miss the mark;
- the capacity to discern what your Being truly values;
- heightened access to intuition to guide you towards more nourishing choices and the freeing of addictive behaviors;
- a blueprint for continuing to recognize & liberate behaviors that no longer serve you.
When we give ourselves to the practice of turning our energies within,
to touch into the stillness of our deepest truth,
we find that something other than our personal will begins to move through us,
guide us and enrich all we do in wholesome & unexpected ways.
