I did not realize how much of my freedom and power I was giving away to alcohol. I did not necessarily hit the proverbial bottom with the often seen loss of job, relationships, or trouble with the law but I lost something very important; I lost myself. I lost my relationship with my authentic self and perhaps my soul. Until I freed myself, I did not realize how much alcohol was dulling all aspects of my life. Sure it seems to numb out pain and stress but it also dulled every day happiness and joy. I was a people pleaser for as much of my life as I can remember - until I wasn't. I just wanted people to like me, accept me and want me around. I spent more time trying to figure out how others may want me to show up and what to say and more importantly what not to say, than on discovering who I am or could be. Because of my beliefs and feelings of not being enough, I thought I found the answer in alcohol after my first drink. I found the secret sauce. I wasn't afraid to speak my mind and I felt less shy; I felt cool. In reality, it didn't make me better in any way and I certainly didn't have anything more intelligent to say, I just didn't care as much.

WHY GOOD VIBRATION?
"As you think you vibrate. As you vibrate, you attract." -Abraham Hicks
Everything in life either vibrates at a high
(positive) frequency - attracting higher (positive) energy and experiences or you vibrate at lower (negative) energy which attracts low energy and experiences.
Svatantra is a Sanskrit word for "one's own freedom".
Kashmir shiva/shakta tantra teaches us that we are born free; it is our true nature but we forget. Our protective responses (for very good reason at the time) are to cover or veil our true self. We are concealed and it the work of our lifetime to discover who we really are in our core.
Are you a seeker?
Are you looking for something more to life; something bigger?
Several spiritual teachers say that those who becomes addicted to substances are often spiritual seekers - albeit misguided ones. This is a person in the pursuit of pleasure, perhaps even a kind of transcendental experience. It is said that this kind of seeking is extremely POSITIVE.
