Adult children of alcoholics are everywhere. It is estimated that 1 in 4 children have had the misfortune of growing up in a sloppy alcoholic home. That is an outrageous number, and maybe instead of attacking cigarette companies, we as a society could possibly start zeroing in on what is truly wreaking havoc on our society and especially our children.
Okay, enough brewing over 'crap' I cannot change single handily and on to the business of self empowerment for we ACoA's as well as Grandchildren of Alcoholics--and heck--let's face it--this kind of recovery work is for ANYONE who was raised by parents who did a crappy job teaching you how to freakin' love your SELF.
Dear One--recovery IS possible. I know because I have done it. I am living a peaceful life. Gone are the runaway like thoughts in my head, that were once drizzled with self doubt, self hate, self criticism and alike. No longer is my focus attuned to what is happening outside of me. I no longer worry who likes me or dislikes me. Zip, nada--it's off this chic's radar Dear One!
These days I am tuned into what I want, what I like, how I feel, what I wish to do, how I can change my world, how I can love people, how I can be giving, how I can let go, how I can honor me, and so on.
Sure once in awhile some ornery so and so writes me a nasty comment, but I no longer focus on the few when in contrast there are so many who are supporting my big mouth ways of preaching healing and recovery for adult children of alcoholics.
After my brother in law committed suicide--it was amazing how incredible the spam folder in my mind developed keen abilities to filter B/S from my conscious mind.
That suicide woke me up in ways I could never have imagined. That coupled with my own near death experience during a hysterectomy, in which my heart stopped due to hemorrhaging on the operating table, allowed my mind to begin processing incoming data from the outside world in miraculous ways.
Once I was plagued by thoughts that kept looping in my brain.
Once I did not know I could question the way my brain looped thought.
Once I did not know that my world was being played out like a video game.
Once I did not know that my 'motherboard' was corrupt due to unconscious programming I received when I was a damn kid, and was unaware.
Once I did not understand that it was not "I" that was dysfunctional, but it was my thought process--or my taped recorded unconscious belief systems--that had been created by the denial based adults in my life that was dysfunctional.
Once I did not know that I, at my core was divine and perfect even, and that all the other crap was a consequence of a woman who had not yet learned to steer her own ship; her conscious mind.
These days I huff and I puff recovery work because I believe in the process of awakening.
As a Life Coach with private clients, I have been blessed to be a part of miracles that happen daily in the lives of my clients. I am also encouraged by the tremendous support my books have been given by those who have read them. And my Youtube viewers are forever encouraging my ferociousness, as it helps them to believe in their own ability to heal.
Dear One--if you aren't choosing your perceptions--then the subconscious mind that is at the helm of your life--has been running somebody else's program!
You are truly blessed Dear One, and within your DNA is the coding of a god!
Claim your right to own what you think, believe, feel, do, desire, and need.
And then act upon those desires without connecting to the ghosts of the past!
