I am an AA sober since early 2011 and have been active in the AA fellowship and provram; when i hear the old phrase my worst day sober is better than my best day drinking I wonder what kind of booze they were drinking
Dear George, I wanted to thank you for your guided meditation. I fortunately, do not fight an addiction, though life can be additive. I find your meditation to be the most effective for reaching "inside" than any other one I have tried. It provides the right amount of time to relax, to prepare for seeking our God, and for quickly going to the silence, you have wonderfully timed, we all need. I agree with others, you should do more meditations, please. Again, thank you. You have been a blessing to my life that I can go to and find myself and my Father. Elizabeth
Hi George, I have a copy of this mediation on a cd. However, I also have a morning meditation that accompanies it but unfortunately I have misplaced this cd and I can not find your short guides morning session. Do you have a link for this please. Also I would like to thank you so much for your work. It brings me a great deal of peace when things are tough as well as in my daily life. Kind regards
Thank you very much George Lewis. Out of all the guided meditations flooding YouTube; this God or HP centered mediation hits home better than anything else. Thank You I would definitely like to share this meditation with my friends in the fellowship, if you'd be okay with that.
I ENJOY THIS.THANK YOU.So far I've not strayed far from meditation .I have 13 months sober.This is my 2nd serious go around.I had 5 years and went back out:( I have gotten the best results by keeping on praying..daily and often...Start praying and don't stop has helped me tremendously.
George, this meditation has been a constant source of comfort for me. I've used it extensively for some time now and would encourage others to do the same. As I approach 9 years of sobriety it becomes more - not less - important
+Scott Boatright I agree with both of you however alcoholism is a complete injustice to the actual illness and i believe that alcohol is one of if not the worst of addictions and this is why it is legal. When one consumes alcohol yes it slows the mind and allows for a lowering of anxiety however alcohol effects us physically worse the lots of other drugs that have a worse label. Alcohol is a gateway drug it leads to many larger issues where other drugs dont open up the user to gambling sex fighting anger and many other things. Even tobacco or eating disorder are worse with booze. An overthinking disorder effects sleep sex joy and i believe is the by far largest single addiction on earth. If you really look at it were the only or the one species that spends time in thought and we are the only species that feels seperate from others and depending on the severity we will kill our self over a disconnection and lonely thoughts that not many others species suffer from thoth or thought. peace all
FEARMANGLER We call it alcoholism for lack of a better word. we have underlying mental disorders which is compounded by an obsession. We all have this insanity before we make peace with our God and fellow man. Serenity will follow our works and faith.
It might be called Alcoholism but the book describes it as exactly what you say obsessive, compulsive thought disorder. The disease centers In the mind. My thinking mind obsessed Over everything. Not just drugs and alcohol. So My problem is sobriety. Obviously using substances is a problem but on substances I'm able to calm my thought disorder down. Once I'm. Sober I cannot and that's what the steps r for
I can so relate to anxiety.I have even been diagnosed with Anxiety disorder....It gets better....daily meetings and praying even if it's all day and breathing helps...slow deep breaths ...this is a good meditation..there are longer ones on here...I'm sure u know....God can crush the fear and I try not to feed my fear...I can God and my fear.God can beat it....
George, how is it going? I haven't heard back from you in a while via email so I figured I'd reach out here. I'd be ecstatic for any tools, resources, experience or guidance you may have for our meditation group. Thank you George!
George, namaste! I used to watch TV every night at bed time. I started listening to this every night instead to relax me and over the course of many months I have only made it thru the whole thing once. Thank you for contributing to my sobriety and peace of mind! Do you have any other ones that are for people that are "one of us?"
Good Stuff. I have been reborn this time around and my higher power has given me a real second chance at my whole life over again. I am working in a rehab setting that focus' on trauma. I love your 12 step meditation. I owe the steps and my higher power everything.
Remember if the big book dosent say it dont repeat it folks. We got a fellowship full of people diluting this message. We need people like george in the trenches keeping it real. We carry the message. God bless
Thank you for putting this together. This is my second time meditating to this video. I really love it! Very relaxing, get's me into a deeper state of consciousness better than any other tools or videos I have used, tried to use lately. It works!! :)
Thanks George. I was introduced to this meeting at an AA meeting in Ambler, PA. I went to the meeting for a friend. LOL. I have been meditating since 1970 but rarely am able to meditate in a group. I have come to believe that when I gather with others who share my willingness and intention, the results are more powerful than, when alone. During the meditation g@d of my understanding appeared in the form of pictures. The typical pictures one may see, Jesus, Buddha, MLK, Malcolm, Selassie I, as well as the many men and women, boys and girls "teachers" in my life. Days following I had many powerful dreams.
Good to make your acquaintance. Meditation is an amazingly simple way to increase our conscious contact. Who would guess that sitting quietly would solve so many day-to-day issures. Thanks for your kind comment...
I've been sober and clean for 10 years... My worst day sober is when my Identical twin brother died... My best day drunk is when I discovered alcohol could solve all my problems? I was 13 and probably on the verge of killing myself or running away from home... And not every time I drank was it terrible... I had many good times drinking... I do not like when people say this... It is not in the Big Book? And I do not like parrots.. God gave me a brain to use? Not to quote something I heard in a meeting? I've been watching the videos Back to Basics... How this program was 1st developed...
George, This morning I listened to this meditation and it was very positive. Your calm voice provided in itself some relaxation, but the channels I went through transformed my mind, soul and heart into me within HIM, and HE within me. I've been sober many years now, and this will help people no matter their length without drinking or using. Humility brought me here, and today, you became my guardian angel. Thank You. I passed this video to another friend who brought up a topic of prayer and meditation at a meeting this morning. I passed it on through you, and most of all GOD.
Thanks for taking the time to be of service to your fellows, George. I'm 18 years sober, have read the 11th step thousands of times. I completely ignored the 4th and 5th words in this step by not taking it seriously. Pain is the great motivator for change. This guided 11th step meditation is exacly what I needed at this time in my life. You're the man!
Very beautiful meditation thanks for sharing it. I have used this technique often through my 14 years of sobriety. I find this very worth while as it lead me to my first spiritual awakening. In time I found I meditate all the time without having to make a time for it. It is like being outside of your body, but not fully.Fully I can do, at any time I choose I will leave my body, my mind will be in a different dimension, along with my spirit. My body and mind are still connected in the 3D world.
I've made a lot of use of this meditation over the past few months. I enjoy how you took it from the Big Book at the beginning and end, and inserted a simple meditation in the middle. I pass this off to my sponsees who are new to meditation.
Do you have any plans to create more guided meditations? Perhaps one geared toward the 3rd step? You have the voice and know-how :)
All the best!
Just going to meetings won't get you Sober. Attending meetings is not working the program. The Program involves getting a sponsor and working the Twelve steps. If you do that to the best of your ability, you will have a spiritual awakening. That is the only thing that worked for me. Best of luck to you on your journey.
I understand. I was in that same spot over thirty years ago. Pray for the willingness to be willing to be sober. Use it as a mantra. When you want to be clean & sober more than you want to drink and or use, you will get sober. Best of luck to you. If I can help don't hesitate to ask.
