So much for my orderly plans for the flow of posts at this blog! Soon we will get to Tenderness Part 3, as well as a couple of guest posts I’m waiting to put in, etc. Quite a long list!
Meanwhile, VALERIE asked a great question today. As long as I’m answering, this deserves its own post. So here we go.
She asked, at Comment 79, in our thread about how to stop smoking marijuana:
“I’m curious about what happens to a person energetically when he or she ingests alcohol.”
Energy effects of alcohol regarding safety
Great question! Let’s consider one energy problem at a time.
Many potheads, or first-time weed smokers, are told, Marijuana is much safer than alcohol.
It’s common knowledge that research has shown brain cell damage from alcohol. On the level of deeper perception, there is a great deal of STUFF that goes into a person’s aura as well.
Research doesn’t have the equivalent of a Breathalyzer test for marijuana, not yet. But similarly there are physiological effects and, on the level of deeper perception, a great deal of STUFF that goes into a person’s aura.
All of this STUFF adds up to serious energetic problems, not just immediate problems but cumulative ones.
Energy problems can still be healed
Let’s make sure this enters our discussion early on. You clients have all heard me say, “STUFF in your aura can always, always, always be healed.” I say this because it’s true. So whatever your history has been with substances, Blog-Buddies, don’t be discouraged.
All effective forms of energy healing can permanently remove STUFF from a person’s auric field. Not only my fave, Energy Spirituality but also Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology.
Neuroplasticity in the brain suggests that someone who has recovered from dependency on marijuana or alcohol can develop plenty of new circuits that work well. So it’s always worthwhile to stop using the substances on a regular basis. Where there’s life there’s hope and healing!
Aura readers, beware
Anyway, to be answer more specifically regarding energy alone, I’ll start using hypothetical “Gladys” as an example of someone who drinks alcohol regularly.
Her aura becomes fuzzy and distorted while drunk. So I wouldn’t recommend reading her aura at such a time. Nor would I recommend that Gladys use any skills of energetic literacy at such a time. Anything she reads would be highly inaccurate.
On the surface level of life, there is distortion to perception. It’s well known how dangerous it is to drive a car while under the influence.
Less well known is that it is energetically dangerous to do any energetic literacy techniques, psychic techniques, mediumship, or channeling while under the influence.
Why? One is far more likely than otherwise to take on astral-level debris. All types of astral debris addressed by Spiritually Sparkling® Skills are risks, including stuck spirits, psychic coercion, terribly distorted negative thought forms.
Astral-level problems from any artificial high
Energy problems just begin with the side effects of any New Age-type activity or energetic healing or paranormal pursuits. Continuing…
When Gladys drinks alcohol, her consciousness becomes lively at an astral plane that corresponds to the vibration of the particular kind of liquor, when interacting with her own nervous system.
A beer high is different from a high on scotch or vodka.
Same things happens with pot, cocaine, heroin, etc. Cocaine is more addictive than pot because it takes the user to a higher astral plane.
Any substance that makes Gladys high is moving awareness to the appropriate level within astral life.
My perspective isn’t merely theoretical. I have done plenty of research with energetic literacy about what it is like being drunk, being an alcoholic or a pothead or a cocaine user, etc. This research has arisen because I will have a client like Gladys who has a cord of attachment to her boyfriend Joe. In analyzing the cord items (part of my 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment® so that the healing is permanent), guess what shows up?
There can be cord items encoded with the energy of being drunk or stoned. This acts like a trigger, moving through Gladys’s aura 24/7.
When a client like Gladys wants to stop drinking, it is very important for for her to cut cords of attachment to important old drinking buddies. This can drastically cut down on cravings.
Energetic sense of identity with alcohol and pot
Another problem with drinking, long term, is a shift to the person’s sense of identity.
The more Gladys returns to the bit of the astral where the substance takes her, the more she identifies with its associated types of perception and vibrations. She will feel detached from human-type perceptions and want to return to the higher-vibe astral-type high.
As addiction to any substance proceeds, Gladys will feel increasingly detached from what is merely human, including taking care of her body, having a job, upholding her usual ethics.
All of this can be completely reversed, of course. A first step is to stop taking the substance, which is where rehab programs can be so helpful, as can the peer support of Alcoholics Anonymous and similar 12-step programs.
Energy Spirituality has a huge role to play, potentially, for removing the STUFF associated with substance problems. I long for the day when we have enough graduates of my Mentoring Program so we can approach places like the Betty Ford Center and provide programs that include individual sessions with residents.
It is going to be such a help for people who struggle with substance dependency that is stuck energetically, encoded in STUFF within cords of attachment and frozen blocks that can be permanently removed with Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®.
If any of you Blog-Buddies are in the rehab field, or feel a calling to help this population, please consider studying with me in that Mentoring Program in Energy Spirituality.
If any of you work with foundations or rehab programs, if you can set up studies, let me know how we can work together.
Meanwhile, I do work with clients individually in phone sessions, helping them to overcome the energy side effects of substances. Obviously I do not represent myself as a drug abuse counselor or other professional in the field; my work is an adjunct to the many professionals in this field.
One more kind of astral-level STUFF from alcohol and pot
An additional problem energetically from getting high relates to astral-level beings, a.k.a. ghosts or stuck spirits. Astral entities is another name for them.
Have you ever seen a strip of old-fashioned flypaper? The more flies who get stuck there, the more new flies are attracted. Yes, you could call this process “The Law of Attraction.” It happens on the level of auric modeling (a topic discussed in detail in Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy).
That’s why flypaper is a pretty good symbol for what happens energetically when someone drinks alcohol regularly. If Gladys drinks a lot, she will start to attract a large number of astral beings into her aura, stuck there. This number will increase as she continues to drink.
Then the presence of entities from her customary high will pull on her consciousness, even if she tries to stop drinking. It’s a vicious cycle.
Removal of astral entities who are stuck in this manner is not difficult to do, however. It is one of the skills I will be teaching in my annual workshop on Spiritually Sparkling® Skills, September 10 and 11 here in Sterling, VA (close to Washington, D.C.’s larger airport, Dulles). Details are off the home page of the official Rose Rosetree website.
You might want to consider taking this workshop, provided that you are at a level of sobriety where you can attend the full weekend workshop without taking drugs or drinking alcohol.
In Japan, for instance, I had a participant, Josephine, who was in this category. She took three weekend workshops in a row, this one and then a two-part workshop for Empath Empowerment®. At graduation, Josephine proudly announced that she hadn’t touched a drop of alcohol in weeks. Of course, as noted, she was already well on her way to sobriety. None of my workshops or sessions is suitable for someone while under the influence of alcohol or nonprescription drugs.
Sample items from a cord of attachment
At the moment I don’t have handy a sample of a client’s records with a cord of attachment where the incident stuck in the cord had the client or the cordee when drunk. However, I do have my notes from a session where my client, GLADYS, was with a friend JOE. During their relationship, JOE supplied GLADYS with coke and appeared to be a very devoted friend; later actions proved otherwise.
Here are the cord items from the session with GLADYS. The first incident in the cord of attachment occurred after they both did a line of cocaine.
1. GLADYS: Feeling the special release and freedom from cocaine, like I am totally safe.
2. Expanding awareness where everything feels glorious.
3. JOE: I’m right there with you.
4. Isn’t it great, being in love and sharing this?
5. GLADYS: Finally, someone who really, really understands me.
6. Process-oriented cord item: Cocaine glow stuck in the cord.
7. GLADYS: I need you, JOE. And I know you need me.
A later incident, also stuck in the cord, after Gladys discovered the betrayal in JOE’s behavior.
8. GLADYS: Confused.
9. Foggy cocaine brain makes it hard to think, to process information. (Gladys isn’t high at the time but the substance is showing its cumulative effect.)
10. What happened with JOE is all from “the little world, with people dancing around like colorful little marionettes.”
11. JOE and I don’t take that [human-level] garbage seriously.
12. We enter the world of the wise, with bigger knowing and amazing senses.
13. Feeling a kind of bump in consciousness as the human reality and sense of betrayal sink in.
14. It’s a feeling like coming down the next morning after cocaine. Wondering if I am going crazy.
15. Feeling used by JOE.
16. It’s like I can’t trust anyone.
17. I don’t want to live.
18. Denial of this.
19. So very confused about who I am. Those other people I know, who are they really? Can they be trusted? What do I do now?
Feedback from the cocaine user about cord items
During the session with Gladys, we discussed these cord items. She was especially impressed with the parts highlighted above in red. It described exactly how it felt being high on cocaine, she said.
(Reading and languaging these items sure felt weird to me, as I have not experimented with cocaine in this lifetime, thank God. I was curious whether these words would make sense to her.)
Another important part of our conversation involved my sharing with her the texture/quality of Cord Item #17. It felt very clear to me that this suicidal impulse was a result of coming down from the cocaine high. Gladys was so relieved to hear me make this distinction. It resonated for her. Post-cocaine, she had been bothered by death thoughts that never had come up pre-cocaine. Knowing that she could permanently remove STUFF causing this frightening problem gave this courageous client even more hope.
And I leave it to you, as you read these cord items, to think about the logical consequences for Gladys of having these cord items gone for good. Don’t you think it may be somewhat easier for her now, breaking free, with less of an energetic pull towards that substance?
STUFF can always, always, always be healed. That’s the important thing to remember.
