Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the thought of trying to answer all the questions going through your mind?
Do you ever feel like you are trying to control every outcome in your life, career, business, relationship, friendship decisions?
It’s time to surrender and let go.
Let go of trying to control.
Let go of attachment to outcomes.
Let go of trying to answer all the questions that are going through your mind.
Have faith in the flow of life.
I can feel you sitting there saying, ‘Rachael, that is easy to say and it’s very hard to do’.
Most people are in battle with trying to control their life in some way or another. It’s interesting because people think they feel more in control when they are trying to control situations, but really they feel the total opposite, they feel out of control and this is why they are trying to control it. Wow, that was a lot of control’s!
Are you ready to let go and surrender to the voice in your mind that is misleading you? The voice of the inner child that is very strong when he or she is feeling fearful.
Surrendering is not giving up. As Marianne Williamson says in her book, ‘A Return to Love’, ‘Surrender means the decision to stop fighting the world, and to start loving it instead. To relax, to feel the love in your heart and keep that as your focus in every situation.’
Surrender is about admitting that you are not in control. It’s getting your self out of the way and trusting a Higher Power to guide you. This Higher Power is you, your inner intelligence (your intuition), you are the power.
Surrendering frees you from fear, anxiety and anger. Although surrendering may feel scary, you will feel lighter, more joyful and abundant and it gives you a sense of peace, contentment and happiness.
Letting go and completely surrendering can spur you into taking action. As you let go, you will be amazed with the clarity that you feel, your inner intelligence will start to become very clear and guide you to take action.
Living from a place of trying to control every outcome is exhausting and brings an enormous amount of stress and sleepless nights. You know the saying, ‘what we resist persists’, we don’t want to fight against life, we want to flow with life.
Let go of your expectations for the future, let go of your attachments to the past, all that is left is the present moment, and that is all we ever have, this moment right now. As you fully surrender and let go, all there can be, is the now.
Some questions to feel your way through;
- Where is this feeling of control coming from?
- When did I first ever feel like I had to control?
- How did this feeling of control serve me back then?
- How is this feeling of control not serving me now?
- Are you drifting through life or flowing through life?
Are you challenged with letting go of the past? We can’t change the past what is done, is done, it is what it is. There is no point asking the ‘what if’s’. We can learn a lot about ourselves from the past, we can turn the past into inspiration and empowerment and start asking different questions; ‘where do I go from here, to move forward in my life?’
Are you challenged with the fear of the future? Accept that things are never really in your control anyway. Surrendering to the unknown unblocks the fear and anxiety and allows freedom and flow. Trust and have faith that everything is exactly as it is supposed to be, you are being guided every step of the way.
Letting go and surrendering is about growth and change, this can be painful, but nothing is more painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.
Living in the now is a choice. We can choose to live the easy way or the hard way. We do have a choice, we always have a choice to live in the now.
Today’s affirmation: I choose to be in this moment right now.
As you let go of control and surrender you will see life in a whole new light, a life of flow.
Much love & gratitude,
