Recovery suggests finding a higher power as a means to gain the direction and strength needed to stay sober. The intangibility of a higher power, however, can keep a person from grasping the concept of faith. Trying to communicate with your higher power may seem foreign and impossible because someone may be looking for something bold to strike from the heavens as a sign.
As much as that may be the standard expectation, a higher power is much more subtle than one may think. With this concept in mind, communicating with your higher power takes patience, dedication, intention, and some spiritual creativity.
Meditation is a great way to connect to a higher power. Sitting still and breathing can often give you the sign that you have been signaling for. When your mind becomes relaxed, you are letting the positivity of your breath establish the connection you are desiring and setting the natural spiritual rhythm.
If you open your ears, you may hear your Higher Power talking to you through other people. Listening to people say things that are serendipitous to what you are going through can guide you. This direction will occur when you are open-minded and going with the flow with others. When you are waiting for an answer, sometimes you will hear the words out of someone’s mouth whom you did not expect.
Doing some of these techniques may seem kooky, to say the least. You should not knock them until you try them, however, because you never know where the message can come from if you are not even willing to try. Thinking you already know everything will continue to get you in trouble. Get creative in how you communicate with your higher power, and you can reap the benefits.
A commonality for people in recovery is comprehending how to communicate with a power greater than themselves, consistently. The point is not to give up before the miracle happens because you can generate signs and wonders that will give you some spiritual guidance.
Whether you hear your higher power talking through someone else or you can see the dictates in nature, there are many ways that you can connect, including using prayer and meditation. Be willing to seek the connection you desire, and you will find the communication you need from your higher power to remain sober long-term.
