Rachel Barnhart, Recovery Coach
My story is a journey that took me from darkness to Light. It was only through Faith in the One True Power, the Loving Unseen–that’s everywhere and all around–that my life became abundant and radiant.
I was desperate for the approval of others even as a child. I searched for meaning, purpose, and what I thought was success in the material world. I found nothing of substance.
If I were to use one word to describe my life, it would be “alcohol.” Most of my life has centered around active alcoholism and Recovery—and skirting death. I started drinking in my early teens and was an alcoholic before graduating from high school. Material achievement and my identity was based on who I thought I should be and on my career, instead of who I really am. I led a double life – one of outward success and inward misery.
I’ve had many dark hours and many bottoms. Eventually, my alcoholism brought me to a place where I lived in my own self-created mental prison of misery and self-loathing. I was unable to quit drinking! Then one day… On my daughter’s birthday I dreadfully wanted her to have one special day without her drunk mom! But, how? How was I going to make it through that one crucial day without drinking? I was so broken. I felt shattered. Terrified and traumatized. I could not stop drinking no matter how hard I tried!!
I decided that birthday was my last birthday with my daughter.
Death was near. I would either kill myself quickly through suicide or through the slow suicide of alcoholism. Then on that magical morning, I cried out to this Power greater than myself – the God of many names – the One True Radiant Light, the Divine Intelligence that is. If only He could keep me sober…just this one day….
I frantically attended an online Recovery Meeting. Something absolutely magical transformed me! I received true Guidance and the gift of sobriety on my daughter’s birthday! And we CELEBRATED! I’ve been sober ever since. I battled alcoholism for 30 years. Today, I’m in Recovery and I treat my alcoholism every single day. It’s miraculous I survived at all.
Today I can say that I have had a dramatic Spiritual Experience and Spiritual Awakening. Today I have a Loving relationship with a God of my understanding that is wilder and more beautiful than anything I could have imagined on my own.
