All addictions, including smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages, allows the body to improve the energy flow in the specific blocked energetic center. Rehab from addiction should, therefore, eliminate the primary factor that created the need for addiction. (That is, to open the life-force energy blockages.)
Addiction not only manifests itself in certain chemicals (such as nicotine) but also, and mainly as a psycho-energetic phenomenon. Releasing traumatic non-resolved issues from the past that caused the addiction is far more complicated than detoxification from the addictive substances.
The reward mechanism of addictions is not only chemical but primarily an energetic tool for conserving the critical life-force energy for any organism.
The first task in any rehab program - releasing the initial and painful traumatic memories of the subconscious mind.
- Achieving successful rehab from any addiction requires reconstruction of the past traumatic events that caused the energy blockage and created the need for this addiction from the start. Traumatic memories are usually stored subconsciously (as part of the mental defense mechanisms). They are often challenging to retrieve (sometimes they involve memories of parents or family members who are no longer alive.) The rehab process requires releasing the trauma from the subconscious to the conscious, where one can be forgiven and let go of the painful memories. Trauma release does not require forgetting.
- Most people are unable to reconstruct the traumatic events on their own. I needed dozens of sessions in a type of treatment that is not available around the world that is quite similar to hypnosis. It is hard to believe in retrospect that these were the events that, at the time, caused the severe liver disease I experienced.
