Addiction isn’t only for the “addicts” of the world, almost all of us are addicted to something because we’re human. Especially in this Aquarian Age of modern society, we are given so much, so fast and if you’re not addicted to excessive eating, drinking or substances then you could be subconsciously addicted to acceptance, advancement or love - sometimes it could be as seemingly simple as addicted to coffee.
This isn’t about completing pushing down that side of ourselves but instead having the commitment to become aware of our addictions - no matter how small or extreme they may be - and decide to shift our thoughts and behaviors into a more aligned flow that works with the energy of the universe instead of against it. Whether addicted to thoughts or things, every day we are confronted with what to put into our bodies, feed our mind and fuel our spirit that directly affects our well-being. Instead of letting our addictions be a source of pain, guilt, shame or any other low-vibration energy - we can use our addictive tendencies as a way to growth and empowerment. In the process of transforming and elevating, we can “take out the trash” and claim our unique gifts out of the wreckage.
Why? Because you deserve it - so, so much. You are beautiful. You are a radiant spirit that has a divine purpose on this earth. In Kundalini, it's said that the soul and spirit within are pure and beautiful as they are, but life gets in the way and creates habits and thoughts that disrupt the soul. Everything that clutters and diverts you from your highest potential just gets in the way. So let's all take the time to face our “addictions” and uplevel!
How to break addictions?
Habits have been proven to be set or broken in 40-90-120-1000-day cycles. At 40 days, you will break through any negative habits that stop you from accessing the expansion possible. At 90 days, you create a new habit in your conscious and subconscious mind. At 120 days, the positive effects of the kriya are permanently ingrained into your psyche. Finally, at 1000 days, you become a master of this habit brought on by the kriya and can call on it anytime to serve you.
When we’re addicted to something there is an imbalance in our third eye (pineal gland). This imbalance affects the pituitary gland, which regulates the rest of the glandular system. When the pituitary gland is affected, the entire body and mind go out of balance.
The ability to make or break habits is associated with the third chakra or solar plexus, in the navel center which is connected to your sense of will power and commitment.
Breath of Fire is a great breathwork exercise during moments when you’re pulled to compulsive, addicted behavior. You can also begin to incorporate the following meditation into your MMR for a full transformation.
Meditation for Healing Addictions
This meditation is deeply healing and works through the pressure of the thumbs triggering a rhythmic reflex which activates the brain area directly under the third eye. Watch the full video on the 528 Academy classroom and follow the steps below!!
1. Sit in Easy Pose with a light breath and straighten the spine.
2. Make fists with both hands and extend the thumbs straight out. Place the thumbs on the temples.
3. Lock the back molars together and keep eyes closed and focus at the Brow Point.
4. Keeping the teeth pressed together throughout and alternate between squeezing the molars tightly and releasing. This creates a rhythmic muscle under the thumbs. Apply firm pressure with the thumbs.
5. Silently chant the five sounds: Sa Ta Na Ma
6. Continue for 5 minutes and up to 31 minutes.
