This is a meatphysical entry dealing with addictions. Read this about a week or so ago and found it very compelling that when a person takes on negative energy and loses contact with Source, they sometimes fall into addictive behavior to bring about the high they had when they were fully connected with Source. I personally feel we're just beginning to scratch the surface with correct treatments for the problem and that many who are engaged in alternative energy work may also bring about lasting results. With some things maybe we might need to revisit what the the shaman, medicine man or Voodoo priestess did to help people in the past.
Don't claim to have any answers, only a new crumb of information.
