Surrendering to Sobriety: A Guided Meditation by Buddy C on Sober Meditations

This prayer is god. I want your will in my life in regards to whatever it is that we're talking about, regardless of what it takes. For me, that truly is a prayer of surrender.
Buddy C, a recovering alcoholic, shares his experience, strength, and hope in this guided meditation on surrender and letting go, which is part of the Letting Go Series on Sober Meditations. Sober Meditations is a free app that offers contemplative alcohol recovery meditations, which are recorded by recovering alcoholics. The app is available on both the Apple and Google Play App Stores. In this meditation, Buddy C introduces a powerful prayer that can help listeners release the things that are holding them back from sobriety. The prayer is a prayer of surrender that asks God to help them let go of a person, place, or thing that they are having difficulty surrendering or letting go of. For Buddy C, this prayer is about changing himself rather than changing God. He also talks about the Serenity Prayer and how shifting the focus from the things we can control to the things we cannot can help us let go of the things that are causing us disturbance and fight.
Buddy C guides listeners through the meditation by encouraging them to relax their bodies and focus on their breath. He also asks them to scan their bodies and notice areas of tenseness and relaxation. He reminds them that it is normal for their minds to wander and encourages them to bring their attention back to their breath. He then introduces the prayer of surrender and asks listeners to repeat it after him. After the prayer, he asks them to let go of all focus and allow their minds to be completely free. He then gently brings their attention back to their bodies and the physical senses. He encourages them to write down any epiphanies they had during the meditation and talk to their sponsor or a friend in recovery if they need to discuss anything.
Meditation is a powerful tool in recovery that can help individuals manage stress, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase mindfulness and self-awareness.
