Have you ever felt like you’ve tried everything and still you’re not where you want to be? You feel frustrated beyond measure, exhausted, you’re fed up of the struggle, you’ve come to the end of your rope and think there’s nothing more you can do?
I have…more than once!
Letting go of our attachment to outcomes, our personal desires is not easy, especially for those of us who are strongly independent, have a need to control and don’t like to ask for help!
The word ‘surrender’ tends to have negative connotations, it’s often seen as a sign of weakness. However, it takes great strength to surrender spiritually…and the feeling that comes when we let go is a wonderful warm, feeling of relief and peace and love, knowing that there is a power who is with you taking care of everything. We can breathe again!
The funny thing is… what we come to see is that the idea that we can control life is quite an illusion. There is a power way beyond us, a divine plan that knows what is best for us all, and, when we allow ourselves to be guided by it, life flows with so much ease and grace.
Surrender is a process. When control is a habit, it’s easy to go back and try to do things ‘my way’ again….and again. Our personality doesn’t like uncertainty, the unknown. Through the process we learn to trust and have faith, we find our inner strength.
Right now with so much uncertainty in life, you may find the best thing is to simply let go of everything, to surrender wholeheartedly, and let your Higher Self guide you. Let go, let go, let go!
