Relationship Addiction, Codependency

The power of the universe will come up underneath you as you turn your attention in this new direction.

 

So Let's Start with Miracles!

"The miracle is the option. There is indulgence, there is repression, and then there is the miracle. What is a miracle? A miracle is simply a shift in perception from a fear-based assumption or belief to a love-based reality. The indulgence and repression of fear-based behavior does not go anywhere; it stays caught in a loop of frustration and fear, but the miracle dissolves this and takes you in a new direction. We get in touch with our Source." ~David Hoffmeister

The essential step is to change your thinking, not to focus on behavior and form. Isn’t that fresh?! Behavior flows from thought, and transformation of the mind is synonymous with changing thought patterns from ego-based fear to Spirit-based Love.

Releasing Addiction

The core of alcoholism, anorexia, bulimia, smoking, and a host of things the world calls addictions, is control. Turning something over to an invisible power—call it the quantum field, your higher Self, or God—is a leap of faith that helps you to let go of attempting to control outcomes. As you can imagine, not trying to control the behavior leads to a very different focus!

Let the Spirit Do It!

This little willingness the Spirit asks is the key to letting go of the attempt to manage the body and the world. This is really an insane attempt to maintain a self-concept/self-image that is hellbent on control so it can feel safe. A Course in Miracles states this plainly:

“Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world." 

This video will take you through the levels of mind so you can trace it all the way in and see what is driving you. It’s essential to see what you really want and get honest about it.

Relationships

 

Undoing the Need for Relationship

 

Movies

We use movies to open the mind and to see what thoughts are believed in—which one’s trigger your emotions—so they can be looked at and consciously released from a fixed position. Doing this brings the mind into a more peaceful state. Watching movies with the intention for healing is a safe way to release pain and fear from your mind.

Love and Other Drugs

Jamie is a fast-talking, drug rep, with a desire to make lots of money and climb the corporate ladder. He meets Maggie; a young woman with worldly defenses just a thick as his, who has a degenerative disease. They are drawn together for an assignment of opening to deeper intimacy. Jamie has never “been in love” before and Maggie is using her illness as a defense to keep herself from opening up.

As they get closer to an authentic experience of love, doubt thoughts arise and both of them go through phases of pushing the other away out of fear and unworthiness. In the end, defenses are laid aside and there is no more giving to get.

Feast of Love

Vibrational relationships are intuitive and joyful and no matter how long they seem to last they fill the heart with gratitude. When you are watching quietly with eyes wide open, the difference between superficial relationships and relationships based on a deep connection is obvious. Eventually everyone's eyes are opened to the obvious and as long as there is a willingness to stay open to love and to embrace what is given with everything you've got, the fruits are always worth it!
