Surrender: "The action of surrendering to an opponent or powerful influence."
The powerful influences in my life are love, The Divine, my spirit guides and Angels. It takes strength to surrender, something that I have written about a number of times in recent weeks. It takes strength of trust and faith to believe that in the act of surrender, life will be taken to where it needs to go. Strength to believe and trust that all will be well as a result.
The issue of surrender keeps coming up, not only for myself, but in recent weeks, for everyone that I've had the joy to do readings for. It is something to do with the current energetic shifts that have been occurring and it's a powerful lesson that so many of us need to learn. In terms of energy, pushing or trying to control the outcome of a situation results in a block in the flow of Universal energy, and as a result, everything slows down. Rather like a damn in a river.
The key is to 'go with the flow', to surrender and allow ourselves to ride it like a surfer would ride the waves - which involves trust, faith and the unshakable belief that a powerful force outside of ourselves, what ever you want to call it, will support us, hold us, guide us in the right direction and will ensure that we are cared for.
It does take strength to surrender, tremendous strength. But the will and our faith together with it's ability to surrender becomes stronger each time we practice it.
Not unlike muscles: the more we exercise them, the stronger they become. This seems a bit peverse really because building strength takes action; yet surrender requires inaction. So on the surface it would appear that we're being asked to act in order not to act. Don't try to analyse this - just surrender and trust.
That is the key to our adjusting to the huge energetic shifts that surround us; for we are being prepared.
Strength and Surrender.
