The Art of Surrendering
Ahhhh to surrender. One might say this is surely a sign of weakness but I do not believe so. Being able to surrender shows strength and honour. It is the ability to say I accept what is given to me, I am here, now and this is what is.
It is not easy to surrender especially when in conflict and you “know” you are right. It is not always about being right, is it always about winning. Sometimes it means taking the high road. It means having grace to accept what is. The same goes for internal struggle.
Many people have been expressing how difficult things have been for them and how low they have felt as of late. These low vibration feelings are here to show us something, to teach us, grow us and when we resist and ignore them they can come back with a vengeance trying to teach us what we could’ve learned the first time around. Think of this experience as that of a child trying to get your attention. If you ignore the child, the child gets louder, whinier, or maybe even does something to REALLY get your attention. This is exactly how our emotions and feelings work.
So how do we surrender
1) acknowledge the feeling
2) thank the feeling
3) ask it for what it is trying to teach you or show you
4) release the feelings back to the universe instead of stuffing it away
Sometimes you will feel immediate relief, sometimes you may feel like nothing comes when you ask but don’t give up. Eventually, by doing these steps you will have clarity and free you off their burden.
It is ok to allow these feelings to be felt. It is far healthier to go through this process then stuff the feelings away in our physical self.
