12-Step Support Group

Affirmations are statements or phrases, that, when brought to our consciousness, can help promote healing and renew our spiritual focus. Affirmations can be read each day, or recorded and played for your spiritual health. Affirmations are a spiritual gift you give to yourself. Gradually, as you repeat these affirmations to yourself, you will begin to experience and internalize your inner truth.

Following is a list of suggested spiritual affirmations from A Gentle Path through the Twelve Steps: The Classic Guide for All People in the Process of Recovery by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D. Select from the list the affirmations that have meaning for you, or add some of your own.

Each moment of my day is filled with openness and vulnerability to the world around me.

I am connected to my planet. I experience the sky, the wind, the rain, and all the elements of my environment. I am aware of the cycle of life. Each day brings greater awareness of my place in the universe.

With an empty mind, I take in each moment as a new experience. Each moment in recovery brings transformation.

I have an inner, true voice that is in harmony with the universe. Each day I develop greater acuity and discernment in interpreting my voice’s clear messages to me.

My body is my primary vehicle for embracing the awe of my world. Each day I nurture and tend to it. Stretching my body brings energy, strength, and confidence to face my struggles.

I am connected to the past, present, and future. What has gone before me is part of me and I will be a part of what goes after me. I am part of the circle of my community. As we are all connected to the past, present, and future, we are all connected to each other.

I am open to the spiritual guidance of others. My spiritual guides are those I love and trust, those I respect, those who have a message for me and those who offer symbols to help me on my journey.

My wounds are my teachers. I am open to their lessons. I practice my spirituality daily. My spirituality is a daily extension of my internal life.

Alcoholic’s Anonymous Approved Literature: Wisdom & History

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.
Amen.     –Reinhold Niebuhr
