A DAY OF REMINDERS – LOVE, WENDY

“Today in a moment of grace, I was reminded of the path of destruction that my former substance use disorder has left on another’s long and winding road…

I was also reminded that while I was deeply unwell, and feel deep remorse over the pain that I unintentionally inflicted, there are some that are unwilling and/or unable to forgive. And of course, I empathize with their feelings, and I respect their choices. I too was once a victim of these same circumstances.

The pain that one has experienced bears scars that are just too deep to heal without treatment. And, when one refuses to speak their own truth to express their suppressed emotions, to validate their emotions, and to allow themselves to be validated, to process, and to forgive, they themselves remain unwell.

Further, I am reminded that all of this is out of my control. I have done my part, over and over again. Perhaps the trauma is that knife still impaled into the soul.

I have used this day as an opportunity for reflection of my past life, and have also reflected on these past nine years of my wellness recovery from addiction. I will not live in a space of guilt and shame. There is no guilt and shame in being unwell. I offer myself fully in the present day, every day in complete wellness in sobriety.

I continue to command respect. I continue to remind myself that I never walk alone. I continue to pray for grace and healing for all.

Thy will be done.”

Love and blessings,

Wendy

BROKEN-LOVE, WENDY

“When everybody does the “wrong” thing and hurts others in the family, it can break the family dynamic.

If nobody wants to speak their truth in order to discuss the real underlying issues, the family remains broken.

Most of the time what underlies the anger and silence is deep hurt and sadness that is just too painful to discuss.

What is even more painful, is a family permanently broken.

Speak your damn truth. Allow the family to begin to heal.

Life goes on until it no longer does. Think about how permanent that is.”

Love,

Wendy

UPDATED EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 5:WHEN YOU BELIEVE FROM MY BOOK “WRITE PRAY RECOVER”-LOVE, WENDY

Music, Numerology, And Divine Experiences

For years, while I was in an on-and-off-again relationship with Steve, I had a specific request that I would make for validation that Spirit was guiding our loving relationship, and each day it was revealed. I would ask to hear our song, “At Last” by Etta James. I would also ask for “our number,” 555, to be revealed to me. Some days it was so powerful that I would feel like the Universe was screaming, “Don’t worry! Everything is going to be alright!” That number, 555, is still my favorite for Spiritual connection as it means that big exciting change is on its way! Recently, my son, Matthew, was getting on a NYC train, and as he took his seat, he saw a phone number on an advertisement banner: XXX-555-5555. He sent it to me immediately and said, “Mom, I think this is meant for you!” It never ceases to amaze me that, day after day, my signs are revealed, and so clearly. I am still in awe of it all. 

Although the “on again/off again” relationship with Steve ended, the spiritual signs throughout the years that we spent together were my compass. Some guided me to understanding on a spiritual level that this particular relationship was a lesson in Divine love that still today continues to be a compass in directing me as I continue to evolve on my ongoing journey. Steve and I remain connected, “always and forever.” #alwaysandforever

I understand now, years later, after spending time reflecting upon the information that I have been given from Spirit, that the relationship “presented itself ” at a time when I needed to learn specific spiritual lessons early in my recovery that only this union with Steve could afford me. 

“Thy Will Be Done.”

Align And Co-Create

Reorganize your energy. Change your inner vibration. Remain present. Hold your vision. Set your intention. Nourish it. Speak it clearly to the Universe … and then let it go. Get out of the way. Listen for the Universe to direct you specifically, and then take action. I observe all that is surrounding me. I no longer react. I have strived for and (achieved) equanimity to the cacophony of sounds that seek to distract me. I am at peace with wherever I am.

Trust the process. Once you let go, things seem to follow a natural flow of energy and love. A peaceful “knowing” comes along with this trust that our positive thoughts and prayers are heard. Be cognizant of the frequency of the energy you put out, as you will receive that same energy back. 

Remember, “Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency with the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not a philosophy. This is physics!”

Let go and trust the Universe to be your soft place to fall!

Say aloud, “Today, I set an intention to _____________________ . I ask my ever-loving, enlightened, guiding Spirits to wrap their loving arms around my intention as I release it to you.” Then let it go. When we have a shift in perception, and awaken to the realization that when we surrender to Spirit and “wait without anxiety,” we are saying, “I trust God/Spirit/Universe to bring to me what will serve me in my highest blessings.” This is a miracle!”

What do you envision co-creating with the Universe? Write

down your first two “action steps forward” that you will, or have

already, executed as a co-creator. Be sure to take your time in

implementation. Do not rush to move past these steps until you feel

ready. Ask Spirit for Divine direction.”

I CHOOSE TO BE WELL – LOVE, WENDY

In reflecting over the past few days where I experienced an opportunity to implement my spiritually aligned actions with one who has attempted to trigger me in my sobriety using the bullying strategies that triggered me to use drugs for decades, I realize that the Universe provided me with this experience to reinforce for myself, and for those whom I serve, my dedication to my wellness and sobriety.

When we stand in our power and in our truth, and we align with our spiritual practices, we are unshakable on our foundation.

I never take things like this personally. I used a positive response, wished him well, and went about my own day.

The behavior and words that were tossed at me are the owners responsibility.

ACCEPTANCE PROMOTES PEACE – LOVE, WENDY

When we are living with a brain disorder such as mental illness or substance use Disorder, our thoughts tell us to engage in behaviors that may be harmful to us, and may be extremely hurtful and frightening to our loved ones.

However, when we have worked in recovery for years to secure our wellness, as well as healing our trauma, and in addition to feeling deep remorse, and making amends to all those that we have hurt, albeit unintentionally, we must leave the past in the past. This is where healing takes place.

If there is a child, family member or friend who still harbors resentment and does not understand this brain disorder, we have the choice to walk away from that relationship. If one makes our disorder about themselves, we can either choose to allow continued emotional abuse, or to exit the relationship. If this person continuously reminds us of how our disorder affected them, always making it about them, and finds passive/aggressive ways to “give us the middle finger“ because they lack the empathy and verbal skills to communicate, we can choose to disengage.

I don’t care who it is or how much love I feel.

I have the right to feel loved, safe, and experience peace in every moment of my life.

And I will not allow anyone else’s behavior to infuse mine.

I am in my ninth year of recovery, proud of my healing, and thriving.

I practice acceptance of this situation.

Acceptance promotes freedom and peace.

I am free. I am peaceful. I stand in my power.”

Love and blessings,

Wendy

EXCERPT FROM WRITE PRAY RECOVER – CHAPTER 5:WHEN YOU BELIEVE – LOVE, WENDY

“Yet, in my fleeting moments of clarity, through my connection to God, I knew that one way or the other, something major was about to shift for me. Through the signs, He had planted the seeds of my recovery. 

God saved my life that stormy October day.  He prevented me from becoming a casualty of the storm, though made it a very close call, in order to remind me that He was present, and that He is truly in charge, and that all I needed to do was ask for help to save my life. And, to surrender myself to Him. It was my awakening moment of clarity. 

And as the saying goes, “There before the Grace of God go I.”

Miracles can be achieved when you believe.

Amen.
