This is Part 4 of a 6 part series on Indigo Adults and substances.
Today we well be covering alcohol…
First of all, I want to start by saying that all that I am about to say it though personal experience. There are lots of scientific experiments that cover the physical effects of nicotine, but I think you’d be hard pressed to find articles that cover the energetic effects.
Do indigo adults drink alcohol?
Well… this one does…
This past weekend was Homecoming at my school, so I got a recent and very direct reminder of the effect of alcohol on the indigo mind, body and energetic field.
As opposed to smoking, which I covered in the last post, alcohol actually opens the heart chakra.
That is why when people drink they say things like “I love you, Man” or are more likely to get into fights.
That is also, by the way, why smokers are more likely to be drinkers… because it does the inverse of smoking by opening the heart chakra, giving them a false sense of… well… openheartedness.
Alcohol puts lots of holes in the energy field. Even one drink can allow more “stuff” into your field from your surroundings than would normally be able to get in.
And, unfortunately, for the epath/indigo adult, being around drinkers will affect you more because you are empathically picking up on their energy field (which has more holes because of the drinking) and so not only could you feel inebriated from their presence, but you also may feel that you are picking up more crap from the surroundings just by virtue of being around them.
There is, however, a useful way to use alcohol, that I discovered a few years ago.
While I don’t encourage a regular habit of getting wasted, extreme inebriation will pull crap off of you and leave you cleaner – energetically – if you drink alone and in an energetically clear location.
I know that sounds like a one-way ticket to alcoholism, but a few years ago I was around a lot of people that expected me to carry energy for them. Despite my extreme diligence about clearing my energy field and bubbling whenever I got around them, sometimes they just wouldn’t un-hook.
Oddly enough, and I’m not really sure why, they would stop sticking to me after a night of heavy drinking alone in my apartment.
As a side note, I’m not addicted to drinking and, frankly, since turning 21 have sort of not been interested since the underage thrill was gone, so I have not partaken in the habit much. And I can get that same feeling by just being in the same room with a drunk person, and then still clear my field when it’s time to drive home, so why bother actually taking in the substance?
But in the instance mentioned above, regarding clearing energy of others hooked into me, it helped profusely.
My theory is that they hooked into me because my energy field felt so yummy. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, my energy field sort of lifted them up energetically…
But me being drunk did not feel like something the vampires in my life at that time wanted to hook into, and so, they would unhook. And I would awaken the next day from my evening of inebriation feeling wonderful… not hungover or sick as most people typically do.
Because I wasn’t carrying their junk anymore.
So getting back to Homecoming…
I have found in myself that there are two modes in which I drink.
One is imbibing alcohol for joy. The other is imbibing alcohol to numb out, like with smoking.
Homecoming was obviously imbibing for joy… and yet I still enjoyed the benefits of waking up the next day feeling much clearer energetically than I had in a long time.
Perhaps this is the crap of the people around me that cleared… I’m guessing it is.
Imbibing to numb out… I judge it as not quite as constructive…
It’s like what I said with smoking… A form of self-medication that I consider to be ok for me, as long as it’s short term.
Because ultimately, what is being numbed out is pain and pain is there to tell you something. It’s there to tell you to change something.
But as a temporary short term fix, alcohol might be a doable solution.
I’ve had mentors tell me that alcohol slows down moving through one’s karma and keeps individuals in unfavorable situations longer.
I could see that. Again, it’s a Band Aid, not a solution.
I have also heard that alcohol, along with cigarettes, grounds the energy field… but I don’t agree with that. Cigarettes might, but alcohol doesn’t do that for me.
It actually makes it more likely for me to jump out of my body… (through one of those holes in my energy field, perhaps?)
And while it chemically opens the heart chakra (and often the throat chakra – self expression), it closes the third eye and crown.
This is maybe why alcohol is considered grounding, but I don’t see that because I think people also lose touch with their 1st chakra, and, quite literally, can lose connection with the ground (and then land on their butt seconds later.)
And the unfortunate thing about all the holes in the field is that because the third eye and crown are temporary closed due to the alcohol, the individual… even one such as myself who is typically very aware when something gets into my field, is not able to detect the crap that is getting in until the next day when sobriety hits.
So I would say that if you do use alcohol as an indigo adult, that you either drink in energetically safe surroundings (like at home alone, or with people that have good clean energy) or if you do go out and drink, as I did this Homecoming, to be sure to clear your energy and bubble before you sleep/pass out.
I know this might be challenging, given that you’re… well… drunk… but it will help you feel better in the morning.
Actually, I credit that to why I felt so awesome this morning. Not only did I receive the clearing/unhooking effects of the alcohol from those that tend to hook in on a regular basis, but I also cleared all the crap that might have stuck to me walking around all day in the public in the inebriated state.
Oh, and don’t forget the normal, physical body maintenance… like drinking tons of water…
Hope this helps… Would love to get feedback from other indigo adults and empaths. What have your experiences been?
