How many times have you set an intention, one that’s really personal, one that really goes deep in your heart? You know you have to let it go, surrender it if you will, so that the Universe can get in there and do some work for you, but you don’t quite know how to pull that off. I don’t know about you, but when I heard the word surrender and that I had to let it go, I struggled with it a bit. Because for me, a recovering control freak, surrender meant giving up. Just the thought of surrendering anything struck a monumental fear chord within me. It wasn’t until I encountered situations in my life where I had no control that I started to learn how to surrender. Letting go changed my life.
But what about those instances where we do have control? Oh, those can get us really tripped up. Because I had that penchant for wanting to control every scenario, I would end up pushing my intention away from me rather than drawing in toward me. Why? The chase. Let’s look at the dynamic of chasing versus surrender for a moment. If we tap into the energy of the two, we find an interesting dichotomy. Chasing is equated with fear and lack. Surrender is rooted in love and trust. Take a look at the energy of chasing. If someone was chasing you, would it feel good? No! It would feel desperate and downright scary! How often, though, when we really want something to happen in our lives, do we dip into chasing energy. It’s much too easy to slip into. “But, I have to have it this way at this time!” Sound familiar?
The thing to remember is that we don’t have the entire picture. It’s impossible with our limited human minds. The Universe sees the whole picture and knows the most efficient, most effortless way to get our desire to us. This is where giving up the chase works to our advantage. Flowing with life and allowing circumstances to unfold as they will is the most beautiful part of surrender. However, in this fast-paced, instant gratification society we live in, surrender isn’t always embraced nor can it feel easy at times. Yet, it’s deeply rooted in truth that we’ll always be provided for no matter what our circumstances appear to reflect in that moment because things can change in an instant. Surrender is a powerful tool we can use to get us on track to the fulfillment of our deepest heart’s desires.
How to powerfully surrender your deepest desires:
1. Get clear on the outcome you want and set an intention
In order to powerfully surrender, we need to get crystal clear on our desired outcome. Think of it this way, it’s virtually impossible to hit a moving target. Our intentions work the same way. Once your intention is set, thank your Higher Power and consider it done.
2. Nix the resistance
When we want circumstances to change or have an intention that’s important to us to manifest, we tend to get in our own way at times. Resistance comes out to play with a vengeance! This looks like fearful thoughts, anxiety, procrastination, doubts. You name it, they all come out to play. When we set our intention and let go, we go through a test of sorts to see if we really want it. Don’t fall for the resistance. Believe in your intention. Trust that it’s on it’s way to you and that if any action needs to be taken, you’ll be nudged to do it.
3. Stop trying to figure out the details
Oh my. This was the hardest one for me. Can you relate? I’ve always been one of those people that loves to figure things out. I love puzzles. This doesn’t work well for surrender! I would set my intention and then try to brainstorm how it would get to me. As I mentioned above, we’re limited to our human minds. The Universe is much bigger than us and has the perfect solution. If we’re too busy getting in the way trying to figure out the best route, we’ll constantly hear the GPS saying “recalculating,” and it slows down the process. Instead of trying to figure out the details, sit in the energetic space of having already attained your outcome. What does that feel like? What does that look like? Feels good doesn’t it? Be in that energy. Experience it to the fullest energetically.
If these steps don’t feel natural at first, that’s ok. They didn’t feel natural to me either. In time, as I worked with them, I found it was easier to let go, to surrender. When I was able to do that effectively, amazing miracles, synchronicities and manifestations occurred. When we surrender, we more easily enter our own flow state and everything is magically possible. So, take the death grip off of your intention today and surrender. You won’t regret it.
