Life Lessons From Your Soul - Surrender

The personality is so great at hanging on to an idea, a plan, a person, a thing or what ever it sets it's sites on. When we really want something to go a certain way, we can cling to that thought like our lives depend upon it.

We may hang on to a relationship that is no longer serving us. We may hang on to a business that is draining us. We may hang on to a way of life that does not demonstrate who we really are on the inside. What ever we hang on to that usurps our personal power will hurt us in some fashion.

A function of the soul is surrender. To surrender is to truly let go of the idea or the person or the thought that we cling to with desperation. The main ingredient needed to surrender is trust. We access the feeling of trust through letting go of the desperation that has shown up to teach us about trust.

Just know the truth. You are not in control. When you allow your experience to unfold before you, you create greater possibilities than the personality could plan upon. Go ahead and let the personality plan but when you begin to white knuckle a situation in your life, step aside and let the soul take over with trust and surrender.

Dear Meg,
Your message about surrender is so clear and timely that I just had to respond with gratitude. It's just what I needed to hear today to help me flow through my day with some sense of peace. Thank you for the reminder that the place of the unknown, the "scary gap", is actually an essential and necessary part of transitioning to a more enlightened space.

So, as i free fall today, I'll allow Trust to be the parachute that will open at just the right time to bring me to just the right place!

With much love and light for the work you are doing Meg!
