S is for Surrender
“When we surrender, we open to more possibilities than we can even visualize or imagine for ourselves” KuteBlackson-
Life is a journey; the best way to experience it is to surrender and let go. Expect nothing and accept everything.
Last year, I chose surrender as the theme of my year.
I can not begin to tell you how many amazing things happened when I surrendered. There were many times when I didn’t want to or didn’t feel like doing something, but I reminded myself to offer, which is always when the magic occurs.
When we make our plan but then surrender the outcome, we have done our part in the creation process.
Maybe it happens the way we want, and perhaps it does not, but we can stand tall with our heads held high, knowing that we did everything we could and let go of the final result.
What happens is that people, events and circumstances will unfold with absolute beauty in our lives. Since we are not expecting or trying to control what happens, it allows more magic to flow. We vibrate higher and float lighter because our physiology is safe and secure. This will enable things to enter our experience that may have been blocked otherwise.
I am reminded about an example of baby chicks born in our home over the winter. Upon hearing that we were incubating chick eggs, my first thought was “no way.” However, I quickly reminded myself of the theme for the year and acquiesced.
In doing so, I was treated to a miracle before my eyes. The chicks pecked their way out of the egg with the ‘tooth’ on their nose and designed for precisely that single purpose; it is used for breaking out of the shell before falling it falls off the nose.
Then the baby chicks moved over to the other eggs and helped warm them until their brothers and sisters were ready to break out of their shells. Once this happened, they all huddled together, chirping and dancing around. Even the Dog peered in with amazement and wonder at the goings-on inside the tiny community of a cardboard box that acts as a home for these baby chicks.
Once we surrender, if we try to do something and it doesn’t happen, then it is not meant to happen (at that time). So these are some of the most significant changes we can ever make to our ideology, and the results are truly magical.
