Spiritual Addiction Counseling with Audrey Hope
Spiritual Addiction Counseling is a powerful healing paradigm to end the suffering of addiction. It is time to embrace a new perspective, that we are here to heal the soul, and problems with drugs and alcohol show us where to begin the journey.
I consider myself to be an expert on addiction, having worked with clients for over 10 years, at a famous drug rehab in Malibu. I sat with people in pain from all walks of life- stars, Ceo's, doctors, lawyers, mothers, fathers, teenagers,- but all were the same, in their experience of despair. No matter the detail's of ones life- the way back, the answer, is to heal and connect- spiritually.
I am grateful that I can share in the power of this force. And I can say from experience that anyone who activates divine energy, the love of self, the integrity of higher laws and the hope of a new way of being, can transform everything, especially the misery of addiction. Miracles are an everyday occurrence.
Spiritual Addiction Counseling is a magical unique process that takes one beyond the rational limited concepts of the mind, the 5 senses, and the boundaries of traditional therapy into the deeper soul, where true healing takes place. The goal of this journey is nothing less than full transformation to affect change in the physical, emotional and spiritual body.
Einstein said you cannot solve a problem on the level in which it was created. People can be in therapy for years, go to rehab again and again, and write a thesis on their problems, but they don't heal. Transformation must take place on a deep energy level of the soul. I am astounded that so many programs do not work on this level. One of my clients went to 15 rehabs and still did not understand the concept of self-love. Trying to help someone who has no understanding or acceptance of healing in a spiritual context is like trying to run a car without an engine!
Healing is simple, if you do what needs to be done. One must work with an alchemist, a talented seer, who knows how to go down into the cave with you and solve the riddle of your soul at its very root. One must investigate from a higher compass, a deep map of karma, vows, life lessons and past lives. When you unlock the keys, transformation is possible, and life becomes a miracle of free creation.
Spiritual Addiction Counseling is a real-feeling experience designed to activate the energy of peace in the central nervous system, and to be forever changed. This is the ancient mystery revealed- that we are powerful light beings with magic to heal ourselves and the world. Like Michelangelo, who removed the stone to find his art, like Dorothy who found the answer in her own shoes, we are here in earth school to return to our true essence, to become masters of our fate.
HEALING THE SOUL OF ADDICTION COUNSELING WITH AUDREY HOPE EMBRACES:
AUDREY'S 10 KEYS TO HEALING THE SOUL OF ADDICTION:
1. Drugs are a divine wake-up call - a guidepost to show you where to look in order to find the source of pain, the potential jewel. Drugs chart the story, the wound, the scream and the unexpressed cry of the soul. Addiction is a call for transformation.
2. Heal the soul wound- the long ago wound that you came to earth to heal. This is the deep core pain that was reinforced in childhood. Unless that lost soul is retrieved, one will spin in a never ending circle and meet the same characters and situations again and again in their divine play.
3. Understanding Energy- in order to discover the invisible energy that steals our life force and to know whom we gave our power to and whom we took it from us. We must seize back the hooks, chains, chords that bind us to others. Spiritual Addiction Counseling helps us find where boundaries have been invaded and identify the negative energy that makes us tired, confused and unsure of ourselves. We then learn to use spiritual tools as an armor of protection from all kinds of energy drain.
4. Unlocking Cellular Memory- people carry pain in their bodies and the past in their cells. The soul will give us messages to tell us about the pain, if we know how to listen. For example a client might say- "I feel like there is a monster on my back." This sacred language of the soul can lead to transformation and save years of therapy.
5. Investigating unconscious beliefs that kill- unconscious cultural family and religious beliefs need a special category in healing dependency. In my years as a counselor, I have been astounded by the pain people carry because of hidden rules they live by. Their unconscious ideas of sin and punishment produce guilt and shame which gnaw at their soul. By uncovering hidden beliefs in the light of day, one can break through any block.
6. Listen to the inner child- people hurt us and we may work on our pain and anger for years. They may ease, but over the years, some people eventually abandon their true selves – this is what is dangerous. We all have an inner child. What your inner girl or boy needs most is you and your attention and approval. Your inner child is waiting for you.
7. Finding the “aha!” moment- this is the deep spot where all the pain began. If you know how to travel to this sacred place, you have an opportunity for real change. Someone has to know how to take you there, and you must have the courage to walk through to get to the other side. In this spot, I say, "ring the bell", it is a time of celebration.
8. Connecting to a higher power- a real feeling experience, like love, like music, that ignites the vibration and frequency of deep peace. This awareness is better than any drug, and it will inspire one to want to live in this energy all the time.
9. The power of choice - after the discovery, happiness is a choice, a practiced skill. Eventually, healing becomes a command, a conscious active decision to change. Decree from the heart -"I am now letting this go. I vow to never let anyone treat me badly again", And I will now follow my heart and speak my truth at all times.
10. Knowing you can heal- the highest truth, kept hidden for centuries, is that we are multi-dimensional light beings with power to heal ourselves and the world. In this knowing of who we are and what we carry, anything is possible.
A WORD ABOUT ENERGY AND DRUGS
Everything is energy and we are energy beings. Spiritual work is about raising the energy level, the vibration and frequency of the body. On the path to self-realization, we are forever challenged by negative forces that try to take us down. Understanding these forces, spotting where they came from and clearing and sealing them up – this is the secret to health and well being. All great healers are aware of this truth.
Drugs and alcohol open a portal to dangerous energy. If only people were aware of this, they would be more careful with how their choices and how they live their lives. Negative energy comes in the form of tiredness, dizziness, depression, anxiety and in its extreme form, the desire to commit a crime or hurt another or oneself.
What makes us vulnerable to this energy is what I call the "Achilles Heel"- an open wound that activates our greatest fears. Everyone has one. It is our shadow self that follows us and haunts us. It is that part of us that has been hurt in childhood and is still in pain. It is the same part that is still frightened. We will go to any length to hide our weakness from others and ourselves. Spiritual Addiction Counseling can help you find your "Achilles Heel" and seal up the portal from unwelcome energies. Miracles happen when we approach healing from this level of positive energy.
EXCERPT FROM A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO TOTAL RECOVERY
SPIRITUAL/ADDICTION COUNSELING WITH AUDREY HOPE
"Happiness is a practiced skill. Health is a strong choice. Love is the healing force," says Audrey Hope, Spiritual Counselor. In her answers to the following questions, Audrey describes how recovery from alcohol and drug dependency involves spiritual recovery. She explores the inner dynamics of healing and shares some tools you can use to promote your own spiritual health and healing.
How Important is Spiritual Therapy in a Recovery Program?
Spirituality is the heart of a healing program- the center, life-giving, vital force. It is like giving air to someone who needs to breathe. Spiritual Counseling is the power, foundation and root from which all healing stems. Trying to help someone without a spiritual context is like trying to run a car without an engine. I am astounded by the number of treatment programs that leave out Spiritual Counseling. One client had been to sixteen treatment centers, and she was still looking at her alcohol problem with shame and guilt. She did not show a hint of self-love and self-esteem, which is what she needed most. This is the missing piece she received through this work.
What is Spiritual Counseling?
One must begin to define Spiritual Counseling and enlightenment by saying what it is not. It is not a religion, a doctrine, a faith, a system of rules to live by. Spirituality must be redefined as the return to a higher consciousness of love. The way you travel to get there is not important, because all roads must lead to it. Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, all must take you home, to the same destination of unconditional love.
Spiritual Counseling is a powerful healing paradigm that goes beyond the five senses into the deeper soul, where all true healing takes place. It is a dynamic process to self-love, self-esteem and self-ruling that inspires you to follow your own heart and your own path. Spiritual Counseling commands "To thine own self be true." On higher ground, we know who we are and what we are capable of becoming. In higher law, we are lifted beyond mediocrity into the powerful truth that we are spiritual beings with the ability to heal ourselves and others.
Spiritual Counseling is a deep healing modality that is about the freedom of the soul. It is different than psychology because it invites one to go beyond the rational mind, to enter the divine energy vibration of love and peace. In the real feeling experience of this type of healing one does not need concepts, beliefs, faith or ideals. You can feel vibrations on one’s central nervous system. This is the basis of the ancient spiritual teachings and the wisdom of the past ages - that we are powerful multidimensional beings of light.
Why Does Spiritual Counseling Help Healing take Place?
Einstein said you cannot solve a problem on the level in which it was created. Audrey takes this concept further into the knowing that healing is not done in the rational mind. Audrey says, "Some people have been in therapy for years and can write a thesis on their problems, but they don't heal. Healing must take place on a deep energy level in the soul. One needs an alchemist, a transformer, someone who knows how to look down into the cave and the maze, and how to solve the puzzle of the soul. A talented healer has radar into the soul, eyes that know where to look and wisdom to ask the right questions."
Spiritual Counseling seeks to clear problems at a profound level. It works because it answers the questions of what really makes us suffer as human beings. We all feel pain for wounds not processed, truth not spoken, anger not expressed, unconscious beliefs that kill, low self-esteem, self-abandonment and longing for inner peace.
Spiritual Counseling looks for answers in damaging belief systems, loss of personal power, energy blocks, thought processes, attitudes, life purpose, choices, boundaries, vows, karma and commitment to truth and integrity and past lives. In Spiritual Counseling, we are asked to take control of our own healing, make conscious active positive decisions, create boundaries, take responsibility, end victimhood and grow up.
How Does Spiritual Counseling Help Addicts to Get Well?
1. Alcoholism or drug addiction is viewed as a divine wake-up call
Dependency is never just about the alcohol or drugs. In a higher spiritual context, alcohol and drugs are a signal, a guidepost, to show you where you need to look to find the potential jewel. Drugs and alcohol chart the story, the wound, the scream and the unexpressed cry in the soul. The dependency is a call for transformation. As Joseph Campbell has said, "Where you stumble, there lies your treasure." When we are on our knees, we begin to look up.
2. Heal the soul wound
Spiritual Counseling looks to heal the ancient soul wound- the long ago wound that one came to earth to heal. It is the deep core pain or issue that was reinforced in early childhood, at around age 5 or 6. Unless that deep loss of soul is retrieved, one will follow the same patterns again and again. One will spin in a never-ending circle and meet the same characters in a divine play. Life and relationships always form patterns and themes. Spiritual sight is viewing life as a mirror that reflects back to us, the lessons we need to learn.
3. Understanding energy
As energy beings, we need to understand the invisible energy that steals our life force. We need to know to whom we gave our power to and also who took it from us. We must seize back the hooks, the chains, and the chords that bind us to others. Spiritual Counseling helps us locate where our boundaries have been invaded and identify the negative energy that makes us tired, angry, confused and full of self-doubt. We then learn to protect ourselves from all kinds of energy drain and use spiritual tools as an armor of protection.
4. Digging into cellular memory
People carry pain in their bodies and the past in their cells. The soul will give us messages to tell us about this pain, if we know how to listen. The soul will talk as a child, in simple colors and pictures. For example, a client might say, "I feel like there are hooks in my back." "I feel like a monster is living in my stomach", or "there is a hand choking my neck." This sacred language of information reveals what is hidden in our inner being. When we learn how to listen and interpret these secret messages of the soul, it can lead to transformation and save years of therapy.
5. Investigating unconscious belief systems that kill
Unconscious cultural, family and religious beliefs need a special category in healing dependency. In my years as a counselor, I have been astounded by the pain people carry because of "hidden rules" they live by. Their unconscious ideas of sin and punishment produce guilt and shame and gnaw at the soul. By uncovering dark beliefs and bringing them out to the light of day, one can heal in a moment. The most powerful spiritual principle is that "thought creates reality."
6. Listen to your inner child
People hurt us. We may work on our pain and anger for years, and it may ease. But the most damaging part is the way we abandon ourselves. We all have an inner child. What your inner girl or inner boy needs most is you and your attention and approval. Your inner child is waiting for you!
7. Finding the "AHA" moment in healing
In this "now" moment of transformation, the deep spot is where the pain began. If you know how to travel to this sacred place, you have an opportunity for real change. Someone has to know how to take you there and you must have the courage to walk through, to get to the other side. In this spot Audrey says, "Ring the bell." It is a time of celebration.
8. Realization that healing is not complicated
Spiritual healing asks you to look at truth in the light of day. The most profound part comes after the exploration and recognition of the problem. In spiritual power, you can then decree, "I am now letting this go!" All healing eventually becomes a command and a choice - a conscious active decision to change. (Sometimes, I refer to my healing process as New York Spirituality- get real, get to the point, and be the best you can be, NOW!)
After the discovery, happiness is a choice, a practiced skill, a positive conscious decision to change. I decree I am now letting this go. I vow to live in love. The vows of self love are:
