The Eleventh Step Toward Riches...

The subconscious mind acts as a filing cabinet does when receiving thoughts from any or all of the 5 senses. It then sorts & files them accordingly using the dominating desires mixed with emotional feelings... It works 24/7... It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modified, changed into their spiritual equivalent & is the medium through which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer...

I hadn't even known of this course before I joined AA but this week I came across two little notebooks that I used to write in when I attended the meetings... When I heard something relative to why I was there & any solutions to any problems that were being resolved because of the ideas shared by my rag-tag room full of mentors, I would jot them down... When I looked through these, oh, the memories that brought back to the beginning of my recovery... What great reminders that I should never forget where I came from... That will help me to realize the life that I've worked so hard for, to never allow myself to return to that life, not that I would ever want to... Persistence is key to carrying out their instructions...

They use the term, “Hitting Bottom” when describing the lowest point in our lives... We are also considered as “Recovering Alcoholics” because it is a disease that we are taught we can control with the help of our “Higher Power” whom I choose to call God... It all depends on the degree of our desire to want to eliminate it as a lifestyle... There is no guarantee as we are all different with different desires... When you achieve this, you will possess the key which unlocks the door to your subconscious mind. Moreover, you will control that door so completely, that no undesirable thought may influence your subconscious mind.

Learn to identify all positive emotions & they will
become such a positive habit that the negatives won't stand a chance of survival...
