On the road to recovery, there have been many twists and turns.
Awareness is as inspiring as it is gut wrenching.
Coming into the understanding that in all my enabling, care-taking, denying, ignoring, justifying, pacifying, complaining, and martyrdom indicated that I was just as sick as the people I thought I was in someway smarter and more moral than, made me feel like I was being torn in two.
As one part of my invisible self began to resonate at a higher vibration, at same time there felt as if humility was in some way dragging me lower than I had ever been before.
Coming through the birth canal of transition and evolution, I can now appreciate how necessary my need for hitting emotional rock bottom was to my total recovery. But at the...
If there is one commonality amongst we Adult Children of Alcoholics that holds us back from moving forward in our life more than any other, it is the fact that we tend to get stuck in our damn heads, and ignorantly sit back and act as if we are powerless to their looping.
Over and over we succumb, like paralyzed marionettes to the dysfunctional, nonsensical, unfair, critical, condemning, judging, self pitying, anxiety provoking thoughts that loop in our minds. Most often these thoughts haunt us as we are drifting off to sleep, when sadly our subconscious minds are the most vulnerable to data. Like an excel sheet waiting to be inputed with data before the closing of a days work, our subconscious minds accept the nonsense of our thoughts and logs it. While we sleep, our subconscious minds are victims to the only data we falsely believe we have control over.
We ACoA's have been lied to in more ways than most of us realize.
Many of us have been brainwashed to believe we are sinners, and...
Dear Ones, knowing HOW to recover will require you to know the WHAT is wrong first.
If you are under the impression that your feelings are all there is to what is happening in your life, and if you are purely going by how you feel--you may be confusing what you feel with what is going on within you on a quantum level.
Yes, your feelings are the indicators. But sometimes we ACOA's confuse pity with love, or we confuse the fear of being alone, with a mashed potato like experience of feeling or thinking we should stay in relationships.
If you are in codependent relationships--you must first learn to DETACH.
1.) Research Detachment
Getting a clear understanding of what the hell detachment is--will help you gain a conceptual idea of what is wrong as well as what it means to actually be able to detach. Yes Dear Ones--Knowledge is power--so get on it!
You will hear me say over and over again, that a whacky mind that is full of B/S which is nothing but recycled mental...

Namaste Dear Ones!
I 'see' YOU, I 'hear' YOU, and I can 'feel' you!
If you are the adult child of an alcoholic, or if you are the adult child of a narcissist, of if you are unsure of your parent's emotional issue, and you believe you have been raised by dysfunctional beings, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
However, I know--you may absolutely 'feel and believe' you are alone.
Dear One, the key to healing is found in the very aspects of our selves that we have been conditioned, programmed and brainwashed to deny, suppress, repress and be ashamed of.
We have absorbed our parents negative, dark energies.
Through the law of vibration and through consistent mirroring of dysfunction--we have been pulled out of alignment with our very core--which is divinely positive and abundant.
All is not lost Dear One. Learning the keys to recovery is all it takes to begin learning how to become more in alignment with your core nature.
In this tele class we will be tackling the very...
