The True Power of Surrender

Letting Go

Letting go is one of the hardest skills to learn, let alone understand. If you’re someone like me, it can be extremely difficult letting go and allowing destiny to take charge.

Letting go means to allow variables to supersede constants, giving you little to no control over the future.

The secret to surrendering is the ability to allow whatever is meant for you, to be be yours. We sometimes want to control every facet of our lives, believing that with control comes certainty.

However, this is not the case. The beauty of life is the simple fact that when we choose to let go, we simple allow the highest good to flow to us.

We simple have no barriers or obstacles in the way; no expectations or no beliefs, simply just the acceptance and knowing that something great is flowing towards you and you will accept it in its full glory.


Infinite Possibilities

It is not an easy task to accept the infinite possibilities that could be flowing into your life. Like myself, the general concern or fear that less control allows for more unwanted situations to arise in my life, is simply a myth.

I have learnt that having too much control can actively block abundance and opportunity from flowing into your life.

The simple act of accepting is not so easy to incorporate into ones life. We have to come back to ourselves and ask some fundamental questions.

  1. Do we accept whatever may flow to us, through us and with us?
  2. Are we prepared to accept any potentiality?
  3. Are we willing to learn through lessons of acceptance?

Allowance & Feeling

Feeling is the Secret

With acceptance we need to have a sense of allowance. The eradication of fear that what we do not want will not enter our life and reek havoc.

The truth is, this certainty can only be determined when we allow the highest good to flow into our lives. We cannot only hope and pray, we need to feel and believe too.

We live in a complex system, a system which is more responsive than amost people understand.

What we are, we attract. What we give out, comes back to us. This is why it is so important to always act in best faith; the highest good.

Each an every one of us have the ability to co-create within this experience, allowing us to be consciously active in creating the very life we choose.

All we need to do is surrender to everything we are everything that can be. Let go of the outcome of what might be and accept that anything is possible. That is when you allow miracles to enter your life.

In accepting the unknown, we choose to live in the present moment and allow anything and everything to find it’s way to us. Without the fear of the unknown, we then allow the universe to unfold right before our eyes. We have the faith that everything will work out as it needs to, without blocking our own blessings.

Surrender is not quitting. To quit means to stop and not go back.

Surrender is not giving up. To give up means to stop trying.

To give in means to yield. It is flexible, and flexibility is strength.

Surrender is an attitude of being and doing our best, then giving the rest to our Higher Power, whatever we conceive that to be.

The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us. — A.W. Tozer
