Step 11 – Recovered 1269

150 150 Mark S

Exploring spirituality in the 11th Step of AA Alcoholics anonymous can be a wonderful and illuminating experience. We now have a solid frame of reference built by the previous Ten Steps of AA. Our recovery has helped us to stay sober one day at a time and has allowed us to expand our capacity for new information about ourselves, and the world around us. This open-mindedness is one of the greatest things about AA. In AA the concept of a “higher power” and “God as we understand him” really affords every single person, from every walk of life, an unlimited choice of spiritual beliefs and actions.

The exact wording of step 11 is:

Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

Tonight, we talk about Step 11.

Step 10 – Recovered 1267

150 150 Mark S

Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!

The exact wording of step 10 is:

We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Tonight, we talk about Step 10.

Steps 8 & 9 – Recovered 1265

150 150 Mark S

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.”

Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit.

The exact wording of step 8 is:

Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

“The readiness to take the full consequences of our past acts, and to take responsibility for the well-being of others at the same time, is the very spirit of Step Nine.”

At this point in our step work, we may be trudging the road to happy destiny, but we’ve reached the point where we must repair what we left behind us on a path of shattered relationships. 

Step Nine of AA Alcoholics Anonymous is the perfect time to let go of the horrible way we feel about our past and to repair relationships radically. Living with the leftover guilt and shame from past wrongdoings prevents us from moving forward and puts us at risk of using again!

The exact wording of step 9 is:

Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Tonight, we talk about Steps 8 and 9.

Step 7 – Recovered 1261

150 150 Mark S

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble.

We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act.

The exact wording of step 7 is:

Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Tonight, we talk about Step 7
