Surrender. If I had a Loonie (what passes for $1 here in Canada) for each time I’ve heard that word in the last few days, well…I’d be able to treat a few friends to a Chai Latte at the local Starbucks.
Not only have I been seeing surrender over and over, as I mentioned in the intro of this week’s ezine, but I’ve been hearing it everywhere too. Case in point, yesterday’s yoga class, “and now everyone place your arms in cowboy surrender.” So what gives?
It appears that the reason why this seems to be coming up non-stop is because so many of you lovely folks out there seem to be beating your head against a brick wall, metaphorically speaking.
Why is it that when things aren’t going our way, we tend to muster up as much strength as we can and try to plough through? It’s like we pick up a big old jackhammer, aim it at a solid concrete wall and figure we will get through to the other side one way or another!
But have you ever noticed that this tactic typically yields crummy results? So why is that?
Well, it’s simple really. Whatever we chase runs from us.
When we chase money, it alludes us. When we chase love, we can’t find it. When we chase happiness, it’s always one step ahead of us. Nothing likes to be chased, it’s a frightening energy.
Fighting against something means we are pushing against energy which actually stirs it up and messes with our lives. This is similar to the saying, “What you resist, persists.”
As Doreen Virtue says, “Chasing after success, love, happiness, or money means deep down, you’re afraid it might not really happen.” It’s this fear that drives you to MAKE it happen, instead of trusting the loving energy to give it to you on its own. Chasing is a form of forcing something and the universe resists force.
If you are chasing down the right opportunity, business move, person, situation etc. it implies that you have to force it to be with you. Chasing means you’re afraid you won’t get it without a conquering energy. And guess what folks, fear in any form blocks abundance (whether that be an abundance of time, money, health, love, opportunities etc.). So please, do yourself a favour and just surrender already.
Your angels have your back. They know what you want (after all, you’re talking to them and telling them, right)? So they are busy working on helping you with what you have asked for. Sometimes you really have to just “go with the flow” and when the time is right, everything will line up for you.
So be sure you are being clear with your angels about WHAT you want, then let go and let them get to work on that for you. It’s their job to figure out HOW to make it happen. So surrender the situation to them, TRUST that your masterful magic making angels will deliver it to you and relax. Go fire up your popcorn maker, hop into your comfies and settle in for an evening with Dorothy and the Wicked Witch.
