Before I got into energy healing and meditation I noticed that many people who went down that path had given up certain things from their life, such as consuming alcohol. At the time I had always assumed that this was a sacrifice that the person was making in order to further themselves along the spriritual path. A very deliberate choice made in order to foster improvement in themselves.
Now that I am following the path of healing I’ve found that in many cases the way that comes about is actually quite different than I had imagined. For many who have embraced energy healing and meditation it’s actually a much more organic process. For me I didn’t make a conscious decision to reduce my alcohol consumption, but I found that as I moved along this path I had less and less desire to consume alcohol. In fact I find my body actually rejects it much more strongly than it used to.
Where I am currently in life I rarely drink alcohol at all, but it was never a deliberate decision or a sacrifice made to somehow improve my spirituality. It was just what I needed based on the way I feel at this time. And I’ve spoken to other healers who have had a similar experience.
At the same time there is often less desire for the escape that alcohol provides when you spend more time in meditation and other healing modalities. The pleasure you feel from connecting more deeply to yourself and your source in many ways takes over for what was formerly provided by something more external to yourself. It can lierally provide a natural high that is much healthier and sustainable.
What my body needs may change over time, as it has in the past. And I will try to listen to it and continue along the healing path in whatever way I am guided to.
