I got sober in jail. My arrest date is my soberity date. I was locked up for 8 months before I wrote to a rehab and got a bed space. I was facing a 5 year charge. In jail, I got into a program that was spiritual based. We did bible studies every morning and evening. I started praying. Prayer gave me the strength I needed to get through each day. My spiritual awakening came when I saw my prayers answered. My higher power guided me out of the darkness and lead me into the light. Today I am 1 year 3 months and 14 days sober. I’m very greatful for my recovery and for the opportunity to draw closer to my higher power. :pray::sparkles:

I had a spiritual awakening through working the 12 steps of Alcoholics anonymous. I also had a burning bush moment, but that only started my awakening. The steps are where true peace and serenity can be found.

What is that?

Like a revelation, or spiritual moment when everything changed. Like when Moses saw the burning bush

I asked my sister yesterday what was a spiritual awakening that I’m hearing about in aa; she’s been sober for I think close to 40 years. I’m still a little unsure but kind of get the theory of it.

It’s different for everyone. Usually it comes slowly, over time. You might not even realize until long after it happens

Thank you, that makes it easier to comprehend.
I asked if it was like a nirvana kind of thing…lol, and she had said for some it is!
I’m normally a skeptical (stubborn) kind of mentality but believe in spirit and God.

It’s usually not a Nirvana thing in my opinion. Usually it is just working through the steps. Then you look back and see your progress and realize your spiritual awakening was happening all along
