True victory is found in self-mastery and by making the unconscious conscious. It happens the exact moment you release the song in your soul and tap the rhythm of your heart. It’s when you wake up and remember who you really are. Now let’s talk about Losing access to your brilliance.
Addiction enables you losing access to your brilliance. It lowers your frequency and your ability to consciously evolve. When you find yourself lost in your own shadows, that is the sound of the dissonance in your soul. At that moment, learn to listen closely, because the tempo is about to change.
Addiction originates in brain chemistry and is triggered by stress. It is a disease of perception, interpretation, disconnection and fear. The drink and drugs are just symptoms.
Your soul is motivated by truth. Your ego is motivated by fear. Recovery is about deconstructing the ego and reprogramming from a higher level of consciousness. As Albert Einstein emphasized…. “The same mind that created the problem cannot solve it.”
Your truth, your purpose, your limitlessness and your potentiality are all trying to enter the world. That IS the reason WHY you are using and abusing. You haven’t even touched the surface of your greatness. When you decide to overcome addiction, you set yourself free. It takes fortitude and focus. It takes love and self- respect.
We all have a soul contract and a reason for being here. Believe it or not…you stood before your creator and you ASKED for this! You asked to be given the sign and signals when your reality was not aligned with your truth. Addiction exposes the truth. It is not a curse. It is a blessing. It is the very instrument that is showing you that your soul is trying to evolve. It’s the real you coming online. Stop holding yourself back. Your vastly untapped and underdeveloped potentiality is right in front of you. It is just waiting for you to show up.
Our societal programming and controlling systems along with our self-limiting, irrational beliefs have proven themselves to inhibit our growth and potentiality. These have, with time, created a numbed out, dumbed down, fearful, insecure human race.
You want to be your best? Then step into the rhythm of your soul, your truth, your power. Move into your limitlessness because your victory awaits.
Let your true voice be heard. The only thing you’ll regret is why you waited so long. Reprogram your mind for victory not defeat, because the feeling of victory harmonizes so much better than regret. Come on, be brave, play the song to the end and see where the symphony of your soul can really take you.
