In this episode, Melissa discusses something that is relevant to many people: addiction. Whether it’s an addiction to food, alcohol, drugs, sex, social media, or anything in between, this episode will help you or your loved ones understand and hopefully offer support to make sense of the need for excess, the strong desire to overindulge, and numb out which are the very things that keep us locked in the pattern of addiction.  Melissa’s prayer is this episode supports you  or your loved ones in healing and moving forward – even if awakening one part of you.

Melissa begins by highlighting the overconsumption that is happening currently in quarantine. We were living very busy lives before and now that we have stopped, people are noticing things in their life that they overlooked before. And with the difficulty of what’s happening, the difference between people who have tools for self-development and those who don’t is more evident – there is a clear divide between the awakened and the unawake.

She notes that obesity, racism, anger, depression, and, of course, addiction are all on the rise, because there is an inability to process the pain, unhappiness, conflict, and self-rejection that is going on. We need to be healed from within and utilize our higher power and connection to self, nature and source like never before – this is the only way to combat addition.

To break free and not perpetuate your current experience, Melissa encourages listeners to choose the higher path. In this episode, she gives tools to be able to experience freedom and lightness.

Melissa reminds listeners that we all ebb and flow on the journey. Sometimes our ego pulls us back and sometimes we listen to our higher consciousness. We need to remember that we are in charge of our environment, both inside and out. Take a look at your addiction and your home. Be aware of things that tempt you and make you want to engage in your addictive behavior, then get rid of them! If you haven’t built your muscle to resist something, help yourself by keeping those things away.

Regardless of the difficulty you’re facing, Melissa notes that you can propel yourself forward very quickly toward the life that you want if you see the challenges as catalysts. Even if it’s hard, be okay with the mess and focus on seeing that things are happening for you.

Lastly, Melissa talks about how to support an addict, whether it’s yourself or a loved one. One  of the best things you can do for a loved one is say a prayer, let them go, and distance yourself so that you don’t enable them. And, if you’re the one who is addicted, Melissa has learned through experience that having faith is one of the best ways to support yourself. It helps you know that you are supported and gets you out of playing god with yourself and your life.

At the end of the episode, Melissa expresses her heart and compassion for her listeners and leaves you with tips for listening to your truth and improving your self-talk in order to create your reality.

 Key Quotes:

“I feel right now while we’re in quarantine there’s an overconsumption happening.”

“Addiction is on the rise. Obesity is on the rise. Depression is on the rise. Anger, frustration, riots, racism, all of these things, prejudice is on the rise. Because there is an inability to make sense of the pain inside, of the internal conflict, of the self-detriment, of the self-rejection that’s happening. And that’s actually what needs to be healed.”

“If you are listening to this and you are currently struggling, you were guided here for a very specific reason.”

“Whether we’re turning to food or alcohol or social media, we cloud our divine connection to something higher.”

“You are in charge of your environment… You are in charge of your house and your home. You are in charge of your mindset. You are in charge of the way in which you nourish yourself inside and out. My question to you is, how do you want to feel and is that aligned with the way you care for yourself”?

“Recognize that addiction is another form of self-rejection.”

“You get to create your experience. Your words create your experience.”

“It’s through connection that true healing happens. That strength comes from asking for help and support. On the other side of connection is your freedom. On the other side of getting out of isolation and self-rejection, is self-love and healing.”

“Please get out of isolation and self-rejection and get into connection and love.”

“There are only two human emotions: love and fear.”

“If you’re creating your reality and your words create your beliefs, why are you telling yourself a shitty story?”

“The beauty of being human is that you get to change your story at any time.”
