It’s no secret we are big fans of Connection around here. Connection is the heartbeat of the human experience - without it, we simply cannot survive. However, Connection is most vital in times of great vulnerability, sacred openness and opening your soul to yourself and others.
These deeply vulnerable times are most recognizable today when walking down the long, never-straight-and-narrow path to recovery. Behind the doors of our recovery meeting rooms, Connection is one thing that binds us all together and makes our bonds with those around us indescribable. To put it plainly, Connection is the gold thread that runs between every single person, making us all one thing - fully human.
This week, I am so excited to welcome Sheri Young, author of the book Relapse Roller Coaster: Alcoholic Delusion to Spiritual Clarity, to the table. Sheri struggled with her relationship with alcohol throughout her life, including 40 years of executive experience in the world of politics, public service and business. By harnessing the power of Connection, Sheri has been able to completely change her life and find true healing and recovery.
In today’s episode Sheri and I dive deep on the true power of Connection to self, others and your Higher Power, and how that deep Connection to the universe around you can truly change your life.
Here’s what we connect on:
Putting our egos aside when hitting rock bottom + surrendering to God (3:27)
Digging deep into our roots (literally and spiritually) to connect with ourselves, others and our Higher Power to lead with self compassion (6:48)
How a lifelong journey and God’s divine plan towards recovery has led Sheri to positively impact others (11:42)
Learning the art of letting go and accepting the gift of desperation to cause change in our recovery journey (15:46)
How connection and alignment to self and others can lead us to living in the “Zone of Miracles” (18:04)
