Transcending Addictive Behaviors Karma - My Personal Journey of Recovery ~ Jona Bryndis

  In a recent discussion in our forum community her at transCODES the question was raised of how Addiction and Recovery tie in with Ego, Inner Child, Karma & Trauma? In this following personal reflection of this subject, I am going to share some of my personal background with you and explain how this connection became clear to me.

   In context with Recovery, Inner Child and Karma aspects are very important topics. As you all know, we don’t just regard substance abuse or obvious addictive behaviors as subject to Recovery – from an energetic standpoint, shadow, ego, co-dependency and co-addiction resemble addictive behaviors just as much as a full blown drug addiction and therefore always need to be a part of self-healing. The reason why Ego, Inner Separation, Inner Child and Shadow cannot be left out of our journey of recovery, is because they are karmically tied to our energetic expression, as they can for example increase or decrease our propensity to addictive coping behaviors in all areas of our life!

   “We understand that the presence of an addictive structure in our energy field is linked to a temporary state of separation from our inner higher power, often set up through our karmic circumstances. While we have given away our powers to external substances, activities or our ego, the reconnecting process to these severed parts is therefore the key element of our self-healing process in recovery.”

Do You Believe in Love? ~ Ben Neal

  Do you believe in love?

  I’m talking about that deep down, life changing, earth shaking, always-and-forever kind of love—the stuff of poetry and legend.

  Many people are skeptical, and for good reason. Today's culture isn't very fertile ground for romance. With social media, text messaging and online dating, we've revolutionized communication but we've lost the art of relationship. There are very few success stories. (Sometimes it seems like there are very few people having real, face-to-face conversations anymore!)

  But I believe. Scratch that. I know.

  True love is real—deep, unconditional, everlasting love.The reason it is so rare is because it is so misunderstood.
