Stop the Resistance and Surrender: A Sober Meditation on Letting Go

The idea here is to stop resisting what we're feeling. A lot of times our problem with letting go is that we're resisting what we need to let go of, instead of allowing it, acknowledging it and then letting it go.
Sober Meditations is an app created by and for recovering alcoholics. It is a resource of contemplative alcohol recovery meditations that can be accessed for free on both Apple and Google Play App Stores. In the fifth episode of Sober Meditations' Letting Go series, Buddy C shares his personal tool for surrender and letting go. As an alcoholic, learning to surrender and letting go is the essence of powerlessness in the first step of recovery. In this episode, Buddy C teaches listeners to stop resisting negative emotions and to acknowledge and surrender to them instead. Through mindful meditation, Buddy C demonstrates that the more we resist our emotions, the more power we give them. He uses his personal experience with a business vendor to illustrate how acknowledging and surrendering to our negative emotions can help us let them go quickly and effectively.
Buddy C's personal tool for letting go is simple but powerful. It is to stop resisting what we're feeling. Often, our problem with letting go is that we resist what we need to let go of, instead of allowing it, acknowledging it and then letting it go. By surrendering to negative emotions, we can let them go and move forward. Buddy C also discusses the payoffs of negative emotions, such as pride and ego, and how surrendering them can help us let go of the negative emotion itself. Finally, he encourages listeners to apply this tool in their daily lives, surrendering negative emotions and acknowledging and surrendering to all emotions instead of resisting them.
Overall, Sober Meditations is a powerful resource for those in recovery who are looking for a contemplative and mindful approach to their journey.
