In some ways the Law of Attraction is Positive Psychology meets Metaphysics.  Positive Psychology states if you have a positive outlook, you will have a happier and more fulfilling life.  Studies in Positive Psychology report certain strengths and virtues enable individuals to thrive.  For example, emotions such as zest, gratitude, hope, and love are the most strongly associated with a satisfying life.

The Law of Sobriety is a program of seven steps that can be combined with twelve step programs or utilized on their own not only to assist in living a life clean and sober, but to live a life that has purpose and meaning.  It is about being called forth to do what you were put on this planet to do.  The seven steps include:

Finding Your Purpose with Intention

Living a life that is true to your Values

Living a Life of Authenticity

Learning to Live in Appreciation, Forgiveness, and Compassion

Living a life of Right Action

Living with Awareness and Mindfulness

Learning to Let Go of Resistance and Attachments

Often alcoholics and addicts are not only drinking and using to escape their reality, but to fill their emptiness, pain, and what many in the 12 steps call a “spiritual hole.”  They are suffering from a spiritual malady of sorts.  It is often said that if they would put the same amount of energy into sobriety as they did obtaining their drug of choice, their recovery would be assured.  Addicts and alcoholics are always looking for the “softer and easier” way. 

The Law of Sobriety may not be easy, but it is simple.  Once these action steps are achieved, you will not only experience what it is to be joyous and free, but your life will have more clarity and purpose.  You will be able to get a grip on what in life brings you the most fulfillment.  Existential questions such as Why am I here?  What is my calling?  Am I living an authentic life?  Do I hide under a false façade?  will be resolved.  You will get a glimpse of your own unique wisdom and how to tap into it so that you can accomplish the goals you have set for yourself.
