How to Surrender?

Over the past few months when my life has seemingly gone off the rails I have learnt how to surrender and as people say “go with the flow”.  I thought I would share with you some tips that have served me well. As my life was going off the rails I looked deeply at what I was like as a person.  All my life I have pushed things and got stressed out when they didn’t happen and so I decided to take a different route. I asked for guidance from the universe on this and I got the words “trust and surrender”.

What stops us from taking action and how to overcome it?

What the hell does that mean?

I thought to myself if I didn’t push towards my goals then I would be wasting time and wouldn’t get there.  All fear based.  I thought about it and realised that when I’ve been pushing towards my goals I haven’t been seeing where I was going – I was blinded and only saw the goal.  Do you know how that feels when you don’t even see your successes? As I was in the process of finding out what trust and surrender meant and I came across this quote:-

“You can’t build a new life on an old paradigm.  

Don’t expect yourself to know the steps in the dance when you have never heard the music.

Easy does it.  Be curious, be humble and be teachable”

This quote really resonated with me.  I didn’t know the steps and my ego was having a field day telling me I couldn’t do it and how can I get there if I don’t know etc etc.

I surrendered!!!


So I did surrender to the unfolding of my life and it feels good.  I know what my goals are but I’m not focusing on how to get there.  I trust and believe that I will be shown the way.  I now hear the birds signing in the morning, I now notice when I’m laughing with my children, I now see the steps that will take me to my dreams and desires. Here are the five tips that I thought I would share with you so that you also trust and surrender to what ever is unfolding in your life:-

  1. Be open and willing to learn more – about yourself and the opportunities that will present themselves.  Don’t have any perceptions on what it will look like.
  2. Don’t stress – do what you can with what you have.
  3. Trust and believe in your self – you can do this!
  4. See the beauty in everything and give thanks to what you already have.
  5. Stop pushing – allow things to come to you.

I hope these tips help you with whatever challenges you are facing in your life.

Let me know how you get on with these tips.

Until next time.
