All addictions allow 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.)
In childhood and adolescence, the mind is still unable to withstand mental traumas associated with experiences of rejection, abandonment, distance, jealousy, and so on. The ability of the subconscious to perceive and store unresolved traumatic events is minimal. Outbreak at these ages is often not in chronic morbidity but addictions! Curiosity and accessibility are just sub-factors!
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 is releasing the subconscious mind's initial and painful traumatic memories.
- Achieving successful rehab from any addiction requires reconstruction of the past traumatic events that caused the energy blockage and created this addiction's need 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 worldwide, which 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.
