Do People Pre-Plan in Spirit to Experience Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who asks if people pre-plan in spirit to experience addiction in their life, and why would they do that?

The Council says right now so many people are interested in addiction and they choose to experience it for many reasons. There’s something they want to learn. There’s something they want to relearn from a past life. There can be something they’re doing to help another spirit grow. Each person has their own path to follow in this choice of experiencing addiction in their life.

Kristi asks how God and spirit view addiction. The Council says God and spirit are the same thing; we are all God and spirit inside ourselves. Each one of us views addiction differently. Some people have no understanding of addiction, become very angry, want no part of this in their lives and pull away. They block out the addition and go into denial.

Others see addiction as someone needing help. Reaching out to this person is part of their journey just to help this spirit get through it. These people have supportive and loving energy and the courage to try and deal with these people.

Each one of us are God and spirit and views addiction differently. It’s all according to what you believe. How you view it is part of your plan for what you want to learn in your lifetime.

When you see someone dealing with addiction, try to understand their path. But more importantly, understand how you feel about this addiction. Is it wise for you to pull away? Is it wise for you to help? Are you there to learn boundaries around this addiction?

Some people want to learn about addiction. If you’re choosing to be an addict, will you agree to come into my life to teach me and help me learn about it? The spiritual point of view is what sets up what the human will go through.

There are many, many lessons to learn from addiction. There’s abandonment, when your family no longer has patience for you. There’s sickness, overdosing, and early death. It’s the experience the soul wants to have. Some people want to go through addiction and have that devastation and then find a way out of it so they know what it feels like. They can then go on and teach others, if not in this reality, then in a future reality.

Some people judge addiction harshly and they need to experience it the way they do. And along their path they may have something happen where their experience will change what they believe. Others may become very bitter and angry from being exposed to addiction and not understand it. These people may choose to become addicted in their next life. And some people choose addiction because they want to learn about shame, abandonment, hurt, death, or love when they come out of their addiction.

Coming into this world the most important thing you agreed to do is to take the love you experience in spirit and bring it into your physical reality so you can change it and make it better. The way you can do this is to allow everyone to be who they are. You cannot change someone else and you shouldn’t change them because they are planning to experience this addiction and they want to learn from it.

Send the addicted person love and allow them to go through whatever they’ve planned to experience. Hopefully they’ve also planned to come out of their addiction. If not, understand with your heart if they succumb to addiction, it was what they wanted to experience. And they’ll use this experience in a future life to help themselves, get more understanding, and help others.

The best thing you can do for an addicted person is to send them love. If you can’t send them love, then another great part of love is allowing the addicted person to learn their lessons so that they grow. And we all grow from their experience.

  4. Wonderful question and answer. My husband seems to be a magnet for people with problems, including addiction. He tries and tries to help (rescue/save) them, often to the point of enabling them, and gets upset when they don’t take his advice or follow through with his help. He doesn’t understand the idea of only helping someone when they’re ready for it and ask for it. I asked you about one friend a while back who lives with addiction and is now homeless, and you let me know his soul chose this. I send him prayers and although it still bothers my husband, he’s stopped trying to rescue or save him. Thank you for your enlightenment!
