In recent years, we have observed an alarming connection between addiction and energetic sensitivity, highly sensitive persons and empaths. The amount of addictive or co-addictive patterns amongst us is extremely high, and often also very challenging to recover, as the underlying need to connect and heal is so strong, that it often expresses in the less obvious form of co-dependency. Co-dependency may not exactly show as obvious addiction, because it hides more in what we don’t do, such enabling, and the inability to feel and maintain healthy boundaries.


For centuries we have been conditioned to believe that addictive behaviors are weak, unacceptable and sinful. We regard our coping behaviors as 'temptation of the flesh', which condemned addiction as irreconcilable shadow part of our human existence. Most of us judge addiction in others, but what about our hidden addictions, that makes us look ‘good’ in other people’s eyes? What about our obsessive self-berating, perfectionism, mental looping, victimhood, spiritual specialness, power-tripping or emotional manipulation? Have you ever considered these behaviors as addictive?

For many of us, at one point or another, reflection on our lives might bring us to question if there is need for change around alcohol or substance use, certain activities or behaviors, or the extent to which we might depend on others to meet our needs. The answer to this is not always straightforward and might well require review of our priorities, objective observation, open discussion with someone we trust, and honest communication with ourselves, to name a few.


The following brief list is of behaviors or tendencies that may indicate current or potential issues with substance or alcohol dependencies or hidden addiction, including living with someone who shows addictive patterns. (Click here to read more about hidden addcitions)


If needed, this is a good place at which we might start with some honest reflection.

In a recent discussion in our forum comunity her at transCODES the question was raised of how Addiction and Recovery tie in with Ego, Inner Child, Karma & Trauma? In this following personal reflection of this subject, I am going to share some of my personal background with you and explain how this connection became clear to me.


In context with Recovery, Inner Child and Karma aspects are very important topics. As you all know, we don’t just regard substance abuse or obvious addictive behaviors as subject to Recovery – from an energetic standpoint, shadow, ego, co-dependency and co-addiction resemble addictive behaviors just as much as a full blown drug addiction and therefore always need to be a part of self-healing. The reason why Ego, Inner Separation, Inner Child and Shadow cannot be left out of our journey of recovery, is because they are karmically tied to our energetic expression, as they can for example increase or decrease our propensity to addictive coping bechaviors in all areas of our life!

For much of our society, the word "addiction" brings to mind the hardcore drug user or the homeless alcoholic we often pass by on the street. However, many of us may have been guided to this type of work for there is often need to look further. The addictive structure that underlies many of the more obvious self-destructive behaviors commonly manifests in very subtle, but at best, still energetically destructive forms of dependency. Many of these dependencies are not only accepted by society in general, but also even regarded as "normal". One specific type that is often hidden in plain sight all around us is a dependency on others in one form or another.
