BACKGROUND

Hello, my name is Martin Santos II

I am thankful, humbled and enriched in every way by grace – with all kinds of speech and practical knowledge. These spiritual gifts of knowledge, wisdom and intelligence were innately given. Cultivated from training, experience and self discovery.

Using these three things wisely, my life and possibly yours will shift for the better.

Being both street wise and book smart; is where my instincts in life have assisted my journey of adapting to the different circumstances around me, getting around them, then using my talents for personal and spiritual growth.

Genuine Recovery is the on going culmination of personal lived experience to help those with the dual diagnosis of mental health issues and the disease of alcoholism.

Like countless many, I adapted with alcohol for years and saw no significant consequences for decades until January of 2015. I surrendered to the grips of the disease through faith, abstinence, the fellowship of AA and a supportive family. With a daily determination, dedication and commitment, I am recovered, based on the faith and trust in the decision placed on my heart (psychic shift).

Recovery is a process of finding the truth, the real self, which is in you. Sobriety is not only abstaining, rather living intelligent, considerate and kind without the dependence of a substance to change the rhythm of a clear conscious. It’s true soundness of mind.

My story, like yours, is continually evolving. Through writing, consulting, mentoring and focused attention to live [one day in time] and appreciate life as best I can with the opportunities presented before me; the experience of life is now more vivid, clear and hopeful.

The pull of the future is greater than the drag of the past. With a joyful innate devotion to God, the future is an unknown, exciting adventure of honoring God to become an expression of the infinite potentiality.

I am here out of truth, kindness, love, gentleness and acknowledging God responsibly in integrity.

The following, is a brief “parenthesis in time” of some past work experiences and skills which introduce me to you.

What I can Do:

• Create mutual cooperation.

• Focus driven on responsible solutions.

Exude warmth and charm with respect.

Claircognizance, an intuitive ability to absorb and reflect other peoples emotions into clear knowingness.

Set boundaries to reduce stress.

Teach “How To Ask” and listen with humility.
