When we’re struggling with our addictions, and when we’re feeling challenged in our recovery, much of our difficulty comes from the fact that we don’t fully believe recovery is even possible for us. While we consciously want to believe we can get sober, subconsciously we feel otherwise. We’re perpetuating all kinds of limiting beliefs about our own strength and about the feasibility of sobriety. We’re telling ourselves that if we haven’t managed to get sober yet, we may never be able to. We’re convinced that other people’s relapses, as well as our own, are proof that we can’t be successful. When we hear success stories from people in recovery, we tell ourselves those are exceptions to the rule and not the norm. When we don’t wholeheartedly believe that recovery is possible for us, we tend to hold ourselves back in our recovery, hinder our progress, and manifest setbacks that we take to be further evidence of our impending failure.

Subconscious Self-Sabotage 

Our beliefs impact our energy, and our energy manifests our circumstances. When we don’t believe we can heal, we’re carrying the energy of self-sabotage and self-limitation. We begin to manifest the exact outcomes we don’t want – relapses, plateaus in our overall healing, and intense internal conflict. We feel like we’re fighting against ourselves. Consciously we want to get sober, but subconsciously we don’t believe we can. We’re consumed by inner turmoil that distracts us from our healing. We sabotage our progress and block our recovery, often without even intending to. Being able to recover starts with shifting our belief systems in order to get behind our goals and actually reinforce them internally. We want to be fully aligned with our goals for sobriety, both consciously and subconsciously.

Shifting Our Belief Systems

One powerful way to reprogram the limiting beliefs of the subconscious mind is through the use of positive affirmations. We don’t want to just repeat statements we don’t believe, though. We want to practice actively feeling and believing our affirmations so that we can adopt new self-empowering beliefs and open ourselves up to the energy of healing. “I believe that recovery is possible for me. I believe in my strength. I believe in myself. I have faith in myself. I am actively working towards healing. Anything is possible. I believe in healing. I believe in sobriety.”
