|Surrender all expectations and allow the Universe's creativity to flow.|
I have been trying to write this post since July, but it never seems to come together. It's been a very disjointed process. Surrender is a part of letting go of the past, an integral part of forgiveness and it's also the final step to manifesting your intention. Funny thing is, the more I pushed to finish this post before the end of January, the more difficult it became.
After you have done everything you can, it's time to surrender. Time to let the attachment to how it will all come to be, go. Time to then give it over to a higher power. It doesn't matter which one. Any will do.
I have needed to let go of my expectation of how I think my creative projects should unfold. I know this. This post is reminding me of this fact, that I always tend to lose site of when I'm in the midst of a creative endeavor.
- This popped up in my Facebook news feed from Deepak Chopra's page:
"Make a commitment to follow the path of no resistance. This is the path through which nature’s intelligence unfolds spontaneously, without friction or effort. When you have the exquisite combination of acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness and you're open to all points of view – not rigidly attached to only one – your dreams and desires will flow with nature's desires."
- I found these two fine articles during my research:
- I finally understood what it truly means to surrender, let go and trust the Universe the day I saw this on the Oprah Winfrey show. She shares her experience with surrender, followed by Faith Hill singing an amazing and healing rendition of the gospel song I Surrender All.
I have surrendered all of the disjointed ideas and videos I have been collecting since July, and will simply leave you with this, the final step to allowing the miracle of the manifestation of your intentions into your life. After you have dreamed, visualized, made yourself available and made room for your intention, it is now time to surrender it to the Universe. Once you release the outcome, you will be rewarded with a dream far greater than you could have imagined.
