If you drink alcohol or do drugs, you probably think it equals to having a good time.
The metaphysical reason for this is whilst you take a drug, it makes you high; your aura will expand to contains your soul's energy, which rises and expands rapidly when you're under the influence.
You probably know what I am talking about if you have done DMT or LSD.
Your aura is more than just a colourful, energetic field. It serves a purpose, which is to protect you from negative influences or harmful energy around you.
It's like an energetic boundary-setting that people can feel even if they don't see it.
The issue with doing drugs and alcohol in excess is that when you feel high, your aura is expanding to contain that energy. Like blowing bubble gum, it rips holes in itself.
It is like an ozone layer but an energetic one.
When the aura has holes from ripping, it creates a hole for negative people/situations/energy to come in. You will have that ex or negative person you cut off pop back up, and you will repeat the same cycle.
This is an excellent metaphysical explanation for why you have never met an addict who has fundamental boundary-setting skills. When your aura is weakened, it creates a vacuum for situations, people and experiences that could drain you of your vitality and energy, which could weaken your aura further.
You know when you're hungover and can't get yourself to leave the house? Your body physically needs the rest, but that urge to take a few days to isolate yourself to repair the internal damage also translates to your energy body.
When you spend time in solitude after a night out, you're also keeping yourself out of the way of things that can potentially really damage your spiritual progress. So don't feel guilty, stay inside for a while.
While there are certain drugs and alcohol that can be very useful tools that provide a window into higher spiritual realms, they are only meant to be a glimpse of what is there. The feeling of being high or drunk is a preview of what it could be like if you did this naturally through spiritual work.
If you can feel high having a placebo pill, then you can achieve the same thing through your spiritual practice like having sexual intercourse!
