The Truth About Alcohol And Spirituality

Does Alcohol Have a Place on Your Spiritual Path?

Alcohol and Spirituality

Alcohol consumption has a wide range of effects on an individual's physical, mental, and emotional well-being. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how alcohol consumption affects spiritual growth and awakening, however, there are many spiritual traditions that view alcohol consumption as one of the most destructive behaviors because of how greatly it interferes with spiritual growth.

In these traditions, complete abstinence from alcohol is seen as an essential requirement to maintain clarity of mind and cultivate spiritual awareness.

A clear and focused mind is essential for spiritual practices and connection to a higher power.

Alcohol consumption can impair cognitive function, dull awareness, cause a strain on human bodies, cloud judgment, and greatly hinder the ability to connect with the divine.

Alcohol can also exacerbate negative emotions and behaviors, such as anger, aggression, and impulsivity, which can hinder spiritual growth and connection. Additionally, even moderate alcohol consumption can lead to the later abuse of alcohol and addiction, which is a significant barrier to spiritual growth and awakening.

My perspective:

Alcohol has no benefit for you on your spiritual path. There is no positive or high vibrational shift that comes from drinking alcohol, despite society's marketing messages that highlight otherwise.

In fact, alcohol does the opposite of supporting your spiritual growth. Alcohol lowers your vibration, numbs your psychic senses, and creates energetic holes in your aura.

And yet, in the early stages of my own awakening journey and walking the spiritual path, I too was drinking alcohol, believing the perspective that alcohol in moderation would not have an overtly detrimental effect on my path and growth.

I knew that alcohol was overall detrimental to health, to the energy body, and ultimately to spiritual growth and ascension…

And while I went for years without drinking, and then would take months off from drinking, alcohol had this sneaky way of reintroducing itself into my life. Whether it was a couple of glasses of wine with friends or margaritas while vacationing in Mexico, alcohol had a way of finding its way back into my life.

Now … that has completely shifted and I'm grateful to be sober and free of the negative effects alcohol has physically and spiritually.

Why Do Humans Drink Alcohol?

If alcohol has so many harmful effects, why is it still ingested by a multitude of people all over the world?

One of the reasons is how it's portrayed in media.

Alcohol consumption is often portrayed in mainstream media as a social activity associated with celebration, relaxation, and fun. In movies, TV shows, and advertising for alcohol, characters are often shown drinking alcohol in social situations such as parties, bars, and restaurants. Alcohol consumption is often depicted as a way to bond with friends, unwind after a long day, deal with the stresses and challenges of life, or to celebrate a special occasion.

There may be some TV shows and movies featuring characters who choose not to drink or who struggle with addiction and alcohol use disorder, but largely alcohol is portrayed as being a completely benign, or even promoted as having positive effects.

And yet …

If you're like I was, you see through this, and know that alcohol can be harmful to the physical vessel, to the brain cells, and to the spiritual journey in general.

If you deep down know this, and still find yourself consuming alcohol, even if it is in moderation, the question is why.

Why do you drink?

The answer lies in the gap between the conscious and subconscious mind.

Even if you consciously want to release alcohol from your life, your subconscious might still believe that you receive benefit from it.

Why would your subconscious think this? Look at movies, at popular culture, at the media. Everywhere you look, there are messages about people having more fun with alcohol.

“Oh, just have a glass of wine to relax.” Is a very prevalent thought and belief.

Pay attention to the next movie you watch and notice these messages programming around alcohol.

They lead your subconscious mind to believe it's beneficial.

My Experience With Alcohol and Spirituality

The Naked Mind A resource that helped me to shift my experience and to easily release alcohol was a book called “The Naked Mind,” by Annie Grace.

You can get this book free here… Or buy it on Amazon.

I find this book to be incredibly accurate on about how alcohol operates in society. Grace writes about the challenges about how you can shift your subconscious mind to effortlessly let go of alcohol. As a huge added benefit, your spiritual growth accelerates and your light shine more fully.

Because here's what we all know: each time you drink alcohol, your vibration drops. It can take up to ten days to restore the point of vibration you’re at before you drink.

This means that one glass of wine a week causes your vibration to continually drop over time. I think we're all here on this channel to step into higher levels of light and that's why I wanted to come forward. Society makes alcohol look glamorous. Chances are, that like me, you have friends who drink alcohol. There are also spiritual teachers who drink. Until recently, I was one of them.

But I know now, without a doubt, that alcohol has no space and no room in my life. It has no room on the path of stepping into the highest possible vibration.

Ask the Archangels for Support

In addition to “The Naked Mind,” I would recommend you call on Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael for cutting any cords of addiction. They can help you release any alcohol spirits that may be in your proximity. From a spiritual perspective, this is what’s happening. Your aura is being weakened, you are attracting a lower vibrational quality of energy, and you become susceptible to lower vibrational entities and energies as a result.

You can protect yourself against these and I recommend you do. Simply ask, “Archangel Michael, please protect my energy body. Surround me with light, help me to maintain a strong auric field, and help me to stay in a state of love and joy.” This is essential.

If you do drink alcohol, it's important to replenish your energy body the next day. Fill yourself up with light, work on your aura. Shine light to restore your vibrational balance.

How I Feel Now Without Alcohol In My Life

After fully releasing it from my life, I feel more vibrant, happier, and so charged up. My gifts are coming through clearer than ever before and I am so excited to see where I am going. I would love for you to join me.

Ask the Angels to release any and all alcohol spirits into the light of the divine, and so it is. Keep yourself surrounded with love, light, and joy. Know that love and light are more powerful than darkness or negativity, so keep tuning into the light.

I hope this is helpful for you.

With love, and gratitude,

  1. Dear Melanie, would you like to write an extra addition on this article on how the aura of addicts also affects their families? As I child I have pondered on why I had nightmares/psychic attacks and was stuck in the “wrong” dimensions longing so deeply for Home (it became my spiritual journey). After a sudden kundalini awakening I realised not only the detoriating affects of lower vibrational lifestyle choices of the person itself, yet also on the family (and thus children) involved. I myself had no other choice than to follow God’s still voice within and live a selfhealing journey alongside Mother Earth as a yogi. Yet I am curious how you would – on an eathly level – choose to heal from being incarnated, like many of Us, in these fields. I still find it tough and dense to be among a highly inconconcious person, my system lowers and drops vibration due to what is happening in the field. Luckily! I was unable to remain in “twin flame catalystic experience” (with an addict!). Yet I am still trying to see how to live the highest potential of love and light within myself. Not to be affected by dark energies (as all outside of myself is inherently also within). I have left the monastic life as a nun, yet find it incredibly challenging in the more Earthly planes where I am constantly being the “odd one” for not drinking, not smoking, waking and sleeping early. I am curious to find articles on the effect of alcoholics on their surroundings from a metaphysical point of view.

  2. So GLAD to HEAR you SPEAK on this topic of DRINKING…….. many are deceived to think that drinking & drugging are ok if you are SPIRITUAL…… EVERYTHING has a vibration……Energy…. as you well know….. THANKS AGAIN for SPEAKING OUT ON THIS………

  3. I started drinking alcohol when I was a teenager in middle school. My parents drank recreational so I think that made it easier for me to choose it. I was on a very harsh self/destructive path for many years with alcohol. However, at 30 years old I prayed for God to take my addiction away and He did. I am almost 20 years sober! Thanks to my Savior Jesus/God/and the Spirit inside me! ♥️🙏

  4. I see the peace sign on your signature. Im just curious as to what meaning you believe it has and the origin of it. Thanks!

  5. Thanks Melanie for your post! It confirms what I’ve felt as well since quitting alcohol for 3 years now. At that time it was a moment of epic, crystal clear guidance that to continue drinking would mean accepting a very real risk of significantly harming myself and my environment. As it was actually an easy choice to say ‘no’ to to alcohol as nothing would outweigh that risk, I just quit cold turkey and never drank again.

    Now the thing is that stopping drinking was easy, it did not solve the underlying reason as to why I started drinking. And, I started to notice the challenges that come with quitting alcohol. They do not come from within but are external: I started to notice that some of my ‘friends’ were that because of my ‘drinking buddy’ characteristics, rather than my real character, and they faded away. Apparently, indirectly, alcohol had given me ‘friends’, allowing the ego to bind itself to it, and anchor it in my behavior.

    To reconnect with your post, it was my spiritual path that led me to this discovery. It allowed me to observe this and not judge my ‘old self’, nor my ‘old friends’, and see it as a part of myself that once was, and that was necessary for me and my environment to get to where we are right now. And I am now in a great place and thankful for all that was, is and will be.

    Thanks so much for your inspiration, it really helps putting the pieces of life’s puzzle together.

    Warm regards, Rogier

  6. Thank you Melanie, that is a great article. I will definitely buy the book you have recommended. I really want to get alcohol out of my life!

  7. I’ve given up alcohol before. slept better but didnt think anythig else was better. How can i give up i really want to grow spiritually

  8. How does living with an alcoholic / daily alcohol drinker affect me and my energetic field as a non alcohol drinker ? I feel I have to be cleaning and clearing my field all day and night. The alcohol drinker is my husband.

  9. The best thing I can say is to look for the answer within. That’s what I did. I just had a spiritual experience that has changed my life but I continued to drink. I noticed that drinking after this experience caused me to loose my spiritual connection, and through looking into this on the internet it confirmed that this is true. I’d just test it out. Go ten days without anything, work on building your vibration and slowly implement these things back into your life one by one (taking ten days in between each to build your vibration back up) and see how you feel. Or just try and do some research lol

  10. Thank you for this….honest and insightful. It’s what I’ve been searching for. Ordered the book too 🙂 Your shared experience and guidance is so very appreciated 🙂

  11. Thank you for this wonderful site! I have a question I was wondering if you could help me with. I was wondering if all substances lower our vibration? For example I do not drink alcohol or caffeine but I used a vaporizer to quit smoking and still use small amounts of nicotine through it. I am also finishing a methadone treatment as I feel this medication is the very worst In many ways and one cannot become a higher being chained like that. With all that said I am concerned about how I will come across and judgement but I cannot get these answers without asking and sharing a little. Unfortunately it was very hard on my stomach to the point where even water would make me throw up and it finally took yet another drug to combat that- marijuana (again painting quite the picture of me 😔) and it does work but again I am not sure if this lowers my vibration. Some say it does not, others do. My hope is that since I almost done I can be finished with both around the same time since I imagine that I will no longer be ill when not ingesting poison. I was just hoping I haven’t damaged myself and will be unable to do certain things as a result. Do you have any experience with dealing with anyone like this? Thanks for listening I know there was a lot here and I never really asked a real question. Thank you again. 💚

  12. Thank you so much for sharing this enlightening information about alcohol! This is just what I needed to commit to an alcohol free life!! You are amazing!! Btw, I too have read “The Naked Truth”. I’ve been reading about addiction through the lens of neuroscience. Very interesting!


    1. So glad to hear this was helpful for you Anita! Congratulations on your commitment to living with a Naked Mind… It feels so amazing! Clarity now is honestly so much better than any buzz ever was!
