Is it possible to transform a pattern of addiction?
There seem to be two very different ways of viewing the issue of addiction. The first says that this condition is an illness or a disease, and that no matter how long we have been clear of the behaviour, we may always be vulnerable.
The second point of view is that addiction is a just a pattern which, like any other pattern, is something which can transform.
What are patterns?
Patterns are like energetic programs which affect us in various ways. They may shape us on a mental level, appearing as our beliefs, preceptions and judgements. They may show up on the emotional level and generate feelings of fear, shame or need. In the case of addiction, there is a pattern of depency which affects us on many levels, particularly behaviourally.
Patterns are made of energy (or consciousness) which organises itself around a certain theme, such as the need to suppress our emotions by drinking alcohol. No matter what the pattern, it can transform from within. When the energy that created a pattern of addiction transforms, that energy will then organise itself around a completely new aspect of your being. When this transformation takes place, the pattern of addiciton will no longer be part of who you are.
Transformation is the movement of Life
Your essence, the Life Force within you, seeks to continually grow you towards your greatest potential. When you don’t get in your own way and you let Life do it’s thing, movement, evolution will happen. When the time is right, the addictive pattern will transform.
Life after addiction
20 odd years ago, I was a struggling musician living in New York City. I had a secret that I never shared with anyone, I was addicted to hard drugs. The move from Montreal to the gotham like creature that was New York City had brought up a lot of fear and deep insecurity, and my way of coping was to get high.
I struggled with this addiction for over 5 years, until finally a transformation took place and I found a way to heal myself. Now there is nothing that Life could throw at me (and believe me it has!) that would make me want to get high.
Years ago a man came for Metamorphic sessions. He was on drugs and alcohol, and in a disfunctional relationship. After a few sessions he broke up with his partner, moved to Ireland, opened a bookstore and started living a new, healthy, and drug free life.
Another client came to see me. One weekend he found himself chain smoking from the minute he woke to the minute he went to sleep. By Monday morning he had lost any desire to smoke and never did again.
The Metamorphic Technique and transformation
Metamorphic Touch is a yes to Life. We know that Life wants to grow us, just as it grows all of nature. We know that every seed encodes the blueprint of the plant it wants to become. We are the same: encoded in who we are is the potential we may one day realise.
When we give ourselves a session it is as if we were saying yes to what Life wants to grow in us. It is as if we were willing to let more of our potential come through.
When Life comes into play, a pattern like addiction can easily transform. The person may suddenly find their way to the right rehab, therapy or support. They may find the will to get clean once and for all. New creativity can come through which inspires them to follow through and change their life.
An invitation to new possibilities
Many of us are struggling with addictive patterns. It might be cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, sex, workaholism, over spending or losing yourself in too much tv or exercise. This pattern is a way of avoiding feeling and keeps us out of balance. If you or someone you know is ready for some kind of life change, whether it concerns an addiction or any other challenging pattern, why not come on a Metamorphic Touch Workshop and learn a profound practice of love in action. This gentle touch can be used to give yourself sessions or to work on those you love. You can work on everyone from the newborn child to the person dying, and everyone in between.
Disocver this amazing approach and see what your life force can do for you!
Much love, Dominique
In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
