What if surrender is the same frequency as trust?
I’ve resisted surrendering for a long time.
Part of me hates the thought of giving up, giving in, and possibly not getting what I want. This is the aspect of me that likes control. The part of me that is addicted to the outcome and results. This part of me secretly loves all spiritual talk about creating my reality and manifesting.
“How” is not your work.
Your work is to define what you want. To imagine it into being. To dream.
Your work is to feel good.
Your work is to follow the bread crumbs of passion, excitement, fun, interest, curiosity, and wonder.
Your work is to trust that you are not meant to create alone. Your work is to believe that the Universe is delivering your wishes to you even before you can see them.
I remember the first time I felt energy tingling through my body—a sensation that felt like tiny champagne bubbles vibrating on the inside of my skin. It felt so delicious that I didn’t move a muscle hoping to hang on to the feeling as long as possible. It was my first experience of physically feeling an aspect of consciousness flowing through me.
Consciousness is the 21st-century label for an ancient is-ness that existed before time and form.
It’s so easy to fall into the trap of wanting to make the perfect decision, but often this is a stalling tactic not to decide at all for fear of getting it wrong.
The split energy of indecisiveness feels uncomfortable because your energy is meant to flow.
The next time you must make a decision ask yourself, “What do I want?” And then permit that desire to be enough reason to go in that direction.
When I first started meditating, my meditation teacher suggested I set up an altar space in my home. He wanted me to lite a candle, burn some incense and meditate on a round cushion facing my altar. Oh, by the way, my altar needed to face East, host statues of saints or deities, and photos of loved ones.
All these rules freaked me out. I was brand new to meditation, and the idea of sitting in a quiet room by myself was weird enough without adding anything extra to the experience.
