Surrender is non-action, you’re not really doing anything. You’re just being, and you are just experiencing. The fear around surrender is that that non-action energy seems uncomfortable and letting go of control or manipulation can be difficult.
Most people try to control their environment. I know as a mother, I was very used to controlling what happened to the kids, how they were dressed, what was going on, what they ate. When my children were little, my husband told me, “Melissa, you’re trying to control everything I do with the kids.” And I went, “Wow, you’re right. I am.” I would say to him things like, if you take them out, make sure they don’t do this, make sure they get that, make sure you’re not giving them soda or whatever controlling issue I had at the time.
The practice of surrender has made such a difference in my life and in my world, and especially in my manifestations. I think that surrender is all about trust. And when you can trust your higher consciousness, trust that the universe has your back, trust that everything’s going to work out exactly how it should work out.
