What Can My Family Do To Help My Brother Overcome Drug Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, PE, who says, I recently found out my younger brother has been abusing drugs. What can my family do to help him overcome this addiction?

The Council says #1, don’t blame him or be angry with him for this addiction. This is something he chose to go through. Be supportive in every way you can. Make suggestions on what he can do, and then leave it up to him to follow them. When your brother gets tired of being in this situation, he’ll change. We see he’s planned in this life to have this drug experience, but also to overcome it.

There are lessons for all concerned. There are lessons for you, your family, and your brother on going through this, how to handle it, and how to have patience, love, and understanding. Stay away from blame and anger. Be supportive and suggest any kind of help you can find. Part of the lesson is finding help and letting go. Your brother must find his way out of this addiction.

While this addiction is going on, constantly ask yourself, How do I feel? What would I do if it was me? How can I understand this? What would I want? When you have these questions answered, you’ll know how to move forward in this situation. Above all, have patience and compassion.

PE asks, Is there a purpose for this drug addiction? The Council says: Yes, there is a purpose. Your brother chose to experience drug addiction to go through it, and to feel what it would be like. He chose it to feel how strong he’d be when he finds a way out of this addiction. He chose it to see how the spirits around him, including you and your family, would respond to him when he’s in his addiction and when he gets better.

There is a purpose. Your brother wants to go through this addiction to learn. Everyone concerned agreed to go through this experience to learn. Search your feelings to see how you’ll respond to him.

When you come into this reality your purpose is to take every situation and change it with love. That’s your answer to your question about the purpose of your brother’s addiction.

The Councils says they send everyone blessings, love, and happiness. And we ask you all to search for joy and find it any way you can, every day.

How Can I Heal My Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Michael, who starts by asking, “If a person has paid off his karmic debts…,” at which point The Council interrupts the question. They say for centuries many people believed there’s a karmic debt you have to pay off and they add, there’s no such thing as a karmic debt.

There are experiences you choose in spirit to relive in order to experience it again, but you relive these experiences differently. For example, you can heal a situation, you can choose to help others through a similar situation, and you can give yourself more understanding. But there is no karmic debt that says you must do this thing to pay back for something you did in a past life. You choose what you create in each lifetime because you’re learning from it and you’re being helpful to others.

Michael goes on to say, “…and has learned so many lessons from his addiction and it has completely ruined his life…” Again The Council interrupts and says maybe you look at it as ruining this one particular life, but according to your spirit, what’s happening is exactly what you want. You can gain additional understanding of a situation or show others what it’s like to be in your situation.

Michael continues, “…but he is now completely ready to fight it with all his might and heal himself. Can The Council suggest how he’d go about this?” The Council says Michael’s idea of fighting his addiction will get him nowhere in terms of his healing. The idea of fighting is negative and there’s too much pressure there.

If you don’t want to experience addiction anymore and you’re ready to heal your life, acknowledge what you’ve gone through. It’s your choice to change your life now and not to go through addiction anymore. There’s less pressure and more love in this approach. Just the fact there isn’t a war between you and your addiction will make all the difference it the world in terms of how you come through this.

If you believe you have to fight your addiction and you don’t heal this part of your life in this lifetime, when you transition you get more understanding. There will be spirit guides to go through this with you and remind you that when you came into this life, you don’t come to fight anything. You don’t come to push anything away. You came into your physical life to learn from it and choose how you want to go further with it. You’re always reminded to bring love into every situation.

Just acknowledge what you’ve gone through, where you are now, and how you want to move forward. Knowledge came with your addiction. Acknowledge you’re a spirit who picked this difficult challenge, but you’ve had enough and you wish to change your life. Your higher self will show you the way to get through your addiction. You should always have compassion for yourself and what you’ve gone through. You can change anything in your life.

Michael closes by saying The Council must release him and he asks how they can do this. The Council says they’re unable to release anyone from anything. You’re in charge of your life. We can only tell you to bring love into it for how brave you were to choose the difficulty of addiction. Now you can have another choice for your life, and that’s you releasing yourself.

Listen to the entire 5-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michael and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask your own question.
