The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol Consumption

The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol Consumption

The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol ConsumptionIn the past I’ve written about some of the consequences of alcohol consumption, and many of our readers have gotten very upset with what I’ve had to say.

I want to address this right off the bat here and say there is absolutely no judgment within this article, and I’m not attempting to tell you what you should or should not be doing. I am merely speaking from my own experiences and sharing some insight that I have gained; I’m offering another perspective and potentially something useful for you to consider.

Alcohol consumption is something that is not only widely accepted in our society, but in many cases and social settings actually implied and expected. It is promoted heavily in the media, with countless ads depicting glamorous living, which always includes indulging in the finest liquor, wine, and beer.

It sometimes seems in our society that the only way to have fun is to include alcohol in the equation. Just the mere fact that it is so heavily promoted through media and advertising in the first place is enough to make me skeptical, but there are many other reasons that led me to this conclusion.


Etymology of the Word Alcohol

To start, let’s take a look at where the root of the word alcohol is derived from. “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl,” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT,” (whoa) and this actually serves as the origin for the English word “ghoul.” According to Middle Eastern folklore, a ghoul is an evil demon believed to eat human bodies.

“Alembic” and “alcohol” are both metaphors for aqua vitae, or “life water,” and “spirit” refers to a distilled liquid, which came from Middle Eastern alchemy.

According to health writer and enthusiast Jason Christoff:

In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence of an entity. Hence its’ use in extracting essences for essential oils, and the sterilization of medical instruments.

By consuming alcohol into the body, it in effect extracts the very essence of the soul, allowing the body to be more susceptible to neighboring entities most of which are of low frequencies. (Why do you think we call certain alcoholic beverages “SPIRITS”)? That is why people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol often black out, not remembering what happened.

This happens when the good soul (we were sent here with) leaves because the living conditions are too polluted and too traumatic to tolerate. The good soul jettisons the body, staying connected on a tether, and a dark entity takes the body for a joy ride around the block, often in a hedonistic and self serving illogical rampage. Our bodies are cars for spirits. If one spirit leaves, another can take the car for a ride. Essentially when someone goes dark after drinking alcohol or polluting themselves in many other ways, their body often becomes possessed by another entity.


A Little About Me and Why This Is Important

This really hit home for me. As someone who used to drink alcohol in excess and not remember a thing that happened afterward, the idea that the soul actually steps out of the physicality during this time fully resonates and actually explains a lot of what went on without my knowledge or awareness.

Waking up in the morning and not having a single clue what had happened was the worst feeling in the world, but was also all-too familiar for me. The things I had apparently chosen to do and situations I ended up in were absolutely not things that I, as me, the “good soul” in my body, would ever choose to do in a million years. I was faced with so much confusion and fear and it never really made sense to me. I always thought to myself, How could I have done this?

When I would drink, after a certain point I would not be able to stop. I can see now that it was likely at this point that a darker entity would take over my physicality and use my body as a vehicle to experience a hedonistic lifestyle for the evening, or however long it was.

Now, to clarify, I know that this does not happen to everyone who drinks. For me, I think it was something that developed over time, but the instance of me blacking out, or in this case “stepping out” when I would drink, began happening at the age of 16, and continued on for about 10 years of my life.

In some ways I think it was hard to accept responsibility for my actions because I had literally no memory whatsoever of what had happened. I would be left with a tremendous amount of guilt and shame, however, that stopped me from admitting to others and myself that it was in fact a problem in my life. Those closest to me would notice that I “wasn’t there” while under the influence of alcohol, and people who weren’t even aware of this concept would say this to me often.

Since having an incredibly healing journey with ayahuasca in November of last year, I no longer allow my body to be used as a vehicle for entities to use. In other words, I no longer consume alcohol at this time in my life.

Now, why I chose to continue drinking despite what was happening while under the influence is a whole other story, and diving into the reasons behind what actually causes addiction in the first place is a really eye-opening and important conversation to have, but it is off-topic for the purpose of this article.


How Does This Relate to the Rest of Society?

You may be thinking, “Well, this is just you and clearly you have a problem with alcohol and shouldn’t be drinking,” and that is absolutely right, but how much is it actually affecting those who drink regularly, but not often enough to consider it a problem, or those who always keep their senses and wits about them? And how much is too much? How many people are actually just in denial about having a drinking problem?

Consider putting yourself in a social setting with many new faces you haven’t met before: Would you prefer that alcohol was a part of the equation or would you be completely fine without it?

We often use alcohol as a crutch, to feel more comfortable and confident in who we are. But at what point are we actually becoming someone else, a person who doesn’t even actually represent who we are in the first place?


Asking Yourself Some Questions Could Be Beneficial

If you drink alcohol, how often are you drinking? Do you find that you tend to drink as an escape? Are you able to have fun in social situations without alcohol? Do you drink alcohol in order to relax or relieve stress at the end of the day? After asking yourself these questions you may want to reconsider your relationship with alcohol.

Challenging yourself to a month without any alcohol could be a really beneficial way for you to see what your life is like without it and to address what comes up in a healthier way.

If you are feeling stressed, for example, some breathing exercises may help, or reassessing your schedule to fix what isn’t working. Without the escape that alcohol gives us, we are then confronted with the issues in our lives and forced to actually fix them.

Again, this is mostly for anyone who may feel they drink alcohol too regularly, or would like to change their relationship with it in some way. There is no judgment toward those who do drink, but in many cases it can be holding us back. If this resonates with you, or if you have done this in the past and noticed an improvement in your life, please share with us in the comments how this has affected you.

Often if we decide to even take a break from alcohol consumption we can feel ostracized from society, or left out, but it is a great way to really get in touch with who you really are, and fully embrace your insecurities head on.

I have ended up making friends that are more in alignment with my path at this time, and people who I feel closer to as a result of this.

My whole life changed after giving up alcohol, but that’s just me, and that was just my journey. But if anything I said resonates with you, maybe it would be beneficial for you to try as well.

Much Love

    I’ve found, from my personal experience, when drinking alcohol, the black moon Lilith part of me takes over. I literally become her. So I don’t really feel it’s possession by something outside of myself, it’s a part of the shadow, that requires integration and healing. I’ve owned my Lilith now-a-days, but she’s not getting a drink again, haha. She may be a part of me, but she’s not controlling this show anymore. Interesting perspective you’ve shared. Thanks 🙂

    I totally agree with you about what alcohol (no matter how little or much is consumed). Several months ago I saw video similar to yours about alcohol and decided not to drink any. I’ve never had a problem with chemical addition (I’ve had too much to drink maybe less than 5 times in my life). So much work goes into raising and keeping higher consciousness, that I will do nothing to lower it.

    This video also mentioned what sex actually is and does to the spirit. It added, what casual intercourse does to your vibration. Having sex with someone that is not on the same vibration or level on consciousness only robs the person on a higher level of their true spirituality. And trying to justify these sort of casual sex relationships (booty calls and fuck buddies. Both of which I’m so glad I rid myself of having or even trying to make something decent of these sort of relationships) as moments of weakness that can be corrected if the relationship is “cleaned-up” is again fooling ourselves. We need to think of the reason that made us get with this person in the first place. Sex gives us a connection (whilst we’re in this body, at times to another dimension) but can that be truly said of the person that we are having intercourse with. If not, it won’t be a lasting spiritual experience.

    I had my first drink when I was sixteen, the effect was at first exciting, I became confident and outgoing, but within a couple of hours I was so sick, vomiting – my body ached, it was dreadful. Being young and EVERYONE was drinking I did again and was not so sick. As time went on, people did indeed say to me that my face changed, I looked angry, I became aggressive, I said hurtful things, things I did not remember saying and would think to myself that they were liars and just wanted to upset me. I knew deep in my heart that somethingI possessed me when I drank. I would stop, then if I became a little upset over something (totally sober at the time) then this dreadful urge would push at me, and I would find myself going to buy some wine, and thinking I need a drink, I must have a drink it will calm me down. Then I would become so very depressed after consuming a few glasses of alcohol, to the point I started thinking of taking my life, and have tried several times to do so. I now know for a fact that when you drink you leave yourself wide open for these negative entitites to take you over and even when you try and stop they seem to wait and when you get upset or even sad, they attack with great force, a force to make you drink, and if you do they cycle starts all over again i.e. depression, anger, thoughts of suicide – well that is my cycle, not obviously for everyone. It has taken my a long time to “wake up” to this fact that it truly is the alcohol causing me so much pain and disfunction, I lost friends, romantic relationships all due to alcohol – how I know this, it is because they all said they could not put up with my behaviour or words after I had a few drinks. Now to make it clear, I am a well educated, kind and deeply compassionate person – but that all changed when I drank – the word “rude bitch” was used often. I have stopped drinking, I have to be on “alert” constantly, especially when something upsets me, I feel “the push” – I take deep breaths and my mantra, so to speak is “I release negativity from my mind, my heart and my soul, I accept love and peace in my mind, my heart and my soul”. I say these words over and over until I feel calm and centered. There is something very bad infecting all of us humans, to my mind it is intentional hence the huge suicide rate, drug and alcohol abuse. What helped me to understand how deep this goes is when I read the book by David Icke “Phantom Self (And how to find the real one)” – We live in the realm of Phantom Self which is why society can be so insane, stupid and brutal – alcohol is just ONE gateway we open when it is consumed – David explains in great detail who and what is driving global society down a dark road of 24/7 control, surveilance and tryanny and why. If you have ANY doubts that this artical is nonsence, or what I or others say in regards to alcohol or any other insane behaviour – then read this book – the TRUTH of what is actually happening is very scary but also very enlightening.

    Well said Brother. I too have what i believe to be a physical, mental, and spiritual allergy to the consumption of alcohol. I what is termed a “blackout” drinker from the very first time i put alcohol in my system at the age of 23. I did and said horrendous things at an office related new years eve party. Things that i would not have done or said ever, if i had. I lived this way for ten years, in a HELL litetaly of my own making. Before allowing myself to seek spiritual answers to my HUMAN problems.

  6. Kara says:

    Thank you for writing this article and for sharing it with others. I used to drink heavily and I felt like was happening. I would black out almost every time I drank. And I could feel the next when something else took over. They were never normal blackouts. From what I hear anyways. It was literally like a switch went off. This switch would flip and I was gone. I would get angry and say very mean things. And even if wasn’t mean, I would say things that I never in a million years would think.

  7. Abbye says:

    Thank you for this article. I’ve read multiple near death experiences online where the authors, in their experiences, learned that low vibration spirits would essentially “take over / enter the body” when someone drinks and/or passes out. This article perfectly resonates with those insights. Interesting (and eye opening)!

  8. Mspouncer says:

    I have been saying for years that alcohol is called ‘spirits’ for a reason 😉

  9. Great article, and thank you for sharing it.
    While reading the comments, I found that we all experienced similar occurrences when we drank. I came into a 12 Step Program and began my early “enlightenment.” I was akin to a “rudderless ship,” having no idea what actually happened during blackouts. It was something I couldn’t control and thinking, “I’ll just have two or three,” slipped into drunkenness before I was even aware. When I became “aware,” I was out-of-it. I continued this habit, addiction, alcoholism for 18 years. The Program gives us 12 Steps. They led me to understand myself. I went further with rehab and therapy. I wanted MORE than to be a non-drinker, I wanted to be spirituality-based and HAPPY.
    I wasted so much time during the years of drinking. I haven’t had a drink in almost 37 1/2 years.
