A few weeks back, @kristie.sparksman
shared an essay about her own spiritual awakening. Today, she’s going back and sharing even more of her story. Specifically, moving beyond alcohol addiction with energy work, soul alignment, and meditation.
After entering the restaurant industry at 18, feelings of ‘I’m not good enough’ began to surface. “Alcohol became my closest friend, my savior. It was there for me when nobody else was. It let me feel nothingness and didn’t judge me. It dutifully poisoned me until I was dull, only to whisper the next morning that I couldn’t live without it.”
During this time, Kristie would journal, pouring her soul into the pages about how much alcohol was messing with her life. Every few months, she made plans to stop and noticed that over time, her voice was less ruthless and more gentle, until eventually, she did quit. Fully and completely. “This is what I believe ultimately saved me — learning to love myself by dealing with unstuck energies lingering throughout my body and in the deep crevasse of my subconscious mind.”
