 The most successful methods of treating alcoholism to date, Alcoholics Anonymous or AA, operates with a strong focus on the spiritual aspect of the mind, body, and soul triad that this debilitating disease affects. Connecting with that higher power on a daily basis and working to improve the quality of that connection is an important part of succeeding in the struggle to maintain sobriety for the alcoholic who is fully engaged in the recovery process via AA’s Twelve Step Program. Meditation is a simple way to help achieve that goal, one used for centuries in eastern cultures to experience a deep connection with the spiritual.
The Twelve Step Program, in addition to its focus on the spiritual, also seeks to provide the alcoholic with the cognitive tools necessary to deal with the negative, painful emotional issues associated with the disease of alcoholism. Long term success in sobriety rests upon the alcoholic finding a way to achieve joy, peace, and freedom in his or her day to day life.
Some conceptualize the Twelve Step Program as a tool, one single tool made of a dozen essential parts, each of which must be used daily in order to achieve and maintain sobriety successfully. Among these steps, it is the Eleventh Step that most closely deals with the touching of the divine. It is for this direct experience of a higher power that each of the preceding steps sets the stage, preparing the mind to be able to experience the freedom, peace, and joy that connecting with that higher power can offer. It is within that experience that the mind of the alcoholic can be free of the self condemnation and other painful, negative emotions and finally feel true pace and joy.
Meditation is a powerful tool. The Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step Program is an important part of preparing the mind and spirit of an alcoholic for the stillness of meditation. The steps help to sweep away the mental and emotional debris that alcoholism leaves in its wake – the regrets, the sorrows, the shame, the pain, the ugliness. It is through eliminating as much of these negatives as possible, or at least neutralizing them sufficiently enough to move forward that real success in meditation can be achieved.
Meditation, offers strong positive re-enforcement of the concepts the Twelve Steps puts forth, particularly concerning the degree to which building a relationship with and having direct experience of a higher power can support long-term success in sobriety. Meditation of this sort empowers the alcoholic by providing solid cognitive strategies for reducing stress and controlling emotions, while improving the function of the section of the brain responsible for decision making and impulse control.
