Rather than letting ourselves be overwhelmed by fear, as we so commonly are, let’s try to actively direct our thoughts towards healing. Let’s resist the urge to be controlled by our worry, our self-doubt, and our anxiety. Let’s visualize ourselves totally healed. What do you look like? How do you feel? What are you doing? See yourself living the life you want for yourself. Give time to thinking about what things you want out of life. What are your goals and dreams? What passions have been neglected due to your addictions? What life purpose have you sacrificed in order to keep up with your addictions? Consciously, actively visualize yourself liberated from the addictions and demons that have been dominating your life. Visualize yourself feeling fulfilled, satisfied, healthy, happy and at peace. Imagine yourself whole and complete, living with serenity, ease and grace. Meditate on feelings of good health, peace and joy.
Start to speak and write your healing into existence. Repeat affirmations both out loud and in written form, to help reprogram your subconscious mind. When we are filled with self-doubt and pessimism, when we don’t have faith in ourselves or believe we can recover, how can we hope to really heal? Think, speak, feel and write about yourself in empowering, uplifting, self-loving terms. “I am perfectly, totally healed. I am capable of incredible transformation. I am evolving, changing, learning and growing. I am more than good enough. I love myself. I believe in myself. I have faith I can heal.”
