    TWELVE PRINCIPLES OF RECOVERY- 11th and 12th Principle

    in Self Help

    We will read and discuss the end of the 11th Principle which is "We seek through prayer, meditation and studying God’s Way, to improve our conscious contact with God, and to improve our love and respect of God, praying for the power to carry God’s Will out in our lives." The 12th Principle is, "Having increased our level of faith and God-consciousness, as a result of applying these principles, we are carrying this message to humanity and we begin practicing these principles in all our affairs."  - This discussion will be taken from my book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self.
    The Twelve Steps of Addiction associated with the Alcoholics Anonymous organization have some good points that need to be recognized when we fall into faulty behavior. Even though the Twelve Steps and my Twelve Principles were written with alcoholism and drug addiction in mind, the program can be used for other character defects such as - Anger, Abuse, Compulsive disorders, Overeating, Gambling, Sexual, and Controlling issues.  When accepting a new life for yourself and realizing that you have to first forgive yourself and others, just saying the words alone may not be good enough to internalize real change. This is why following a program methodically with a solid commitment, and demonstrating the new you by being the example of what you are now believing, you can have more reassurance of a new path for yourself.

    TWELVE PRINCIPLES OF RECOVERY part 12

    in Self Help

    Tony Bratko MSC, NCC, LAC, a licensed residential therapist for Calvary Addiction Recovery Center in Phoenix, Az, is our special guest today - His discussion statement for today is this: I personally utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (considered an "evidence based modality for substance abuse) which treats the core beliefs that an individual has compiled about themselves and their world, over their lifetime. These core beliefs are usually distorted and require the person to identify them, challenge them, and then change them in order to change their behaviors and feelings.

    TWELVE PRINCIPLES OF RECOVERY part 9

    in Self Help

    We will read from the 5th Principle which states:
    We admitted to God, and to ourselves the exact nature of our wrongs.
    In order to be truly effective in the freeing process, admission has to come from our own hearts through our own lips. We can’t rationalize refusing to do so by saying that, "God is All Knowing, so He already knows my character defects, therefore I do not have to admit anything." This emerging from isolation through the open and honest sharing of our terrible burden of guilt, brings us to a resting place where we may prepare ourselves for the next principle.
    This reading and discussion originates from my book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self

    "The most empowering thing I could ever say to a person who would like their life to change for the better is that it MUST be done from the inside out. There is no other way. I know this from my own personal experience, and from witnessing my clients and my students do it for themselves. When a person who has been a victim comes to really understand this one thing, get ready to be amazed by the things they will accomplish!!"
