One day you aknowledge your addiction. And the moment comes that you want to do something about it. Soon you experience that internal split : you want to give it up, and you don’t want to give it up. Enigmatic, impossible to solve, a lack of willpower, but it is none of that.
Habits and images sink into the subconscious, and from there are directing our behaviour. That’s why it is so tough to change them. Maybe you deny having a problem with addiction, but you’ll always long to heal the split inside of you.
Healings bring subconscious material to the surface where you have more grip on it and are able to make a new choice. For a non-smoking existence, or for a fresh and clear head, for an honest relationship, with pleasure and without feeling the victim. Healings will fasten, deepen and complete the recoveryprocess. You can combine them wit other modalities like AA. Your former addiction doesn’t need to be a lifelong susceptibility.
I was smoking cigarettes my whole life, but now I am a happy non-smoker for the last 5 years. So I know how it feels to make that journey. And I made my thesis about it : “Free from addiction -get addicted to freedom.” The idea is that criticism, contempt and indignation don’t help. They just make us feel worse and therefore more addicted. The combination of counselling and bodywork works well, also in the long term. Hands-on healing is not a hug but a deeply satisfying experience, as if someone supports you from the inside. The black holes in your psyche dissolve and loose their fatal attraction.
Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving, it doesn’t matter
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come even if you have broken your vow a thousand times,
Come, yet again, come, come.
As quoted in Rumi and His Sufi Path of Love
