As an example, you have a big toe but you are not usually aware of your big toe throughout the day. However, if you stub your toe, all your attention will be directed to that area of the body, and you suddenly become aware of it. You always had a big toe, of course, but your awareness of it was quite limited, or even non-existent!
In competitive sporting events, athletes regularly hurt or injure themselves without an awareness of the injury occurring in the moment. They only notice afterwards, when the adrenaline has gone.
If we ascend in consciousness, and start to gain a greater awareness and appreciation of life, we will increase our spiritual faculty of discernment.
Actually, alcohol deadens the nervous system, and it's toxic and dehydrating to the brain cells. Hangover anyone?
In SRT circles, many practitioners will abstain from doing "energy clearing" on themselves or their clients if they've had even one drink. This is because their energy field tends to become unstable and open to lower astral forms which "interfere" with their ability to link to their higher mind, or superconscious. Can this be proven scientifically, in the narrow sense of that word? No.
It there a discernible change in the energy field? Yes.
However, discernment would indicate that "feeling sick" is not "fun" - if you woke up with a splitting headache, felt like vomiting, couldn't eat anything, couldn't stand bright lights, and you hadn't been out drinking heavily the night before, you would rush to the doctor, wouldn't you?
Of course, who wants to hear this? Not many people I can tell you. If you're reading this far, and you're not angry, good for you!
It wasn't easy... I missed the social aspect of drinking.. of "fitting in" to society... I didn't want to be "left out", or "judged" by others. Yet, I felt different.
I was meditating a lot, and I remember asking the Universe for clear guidance on alcohol as something inside me was battling with my alienation from alcohol...
Shortly thereafter, a passage from the Conversations with God series synchronously landed in my lap... if you've read it, you may remember it... it's the passage where Neale Donald Walsch (the author) asks God directly about alcohol.
Neale believed that "everything in moderation" was key, including alcohol but God unequivocally said, "the body was not meant to intake alcohol".
When you drink, just observe yourself. Notice your state before, during and afterwards. See it as an "experiment" in watching the self. What is your truth?
As Soren Kierkegaard rightly said, "I know the truth only when it becomes life in me."
If you're happy drinking alcohol, and you disagree with what I've said here, that's absolutely fine!
