The Truth About Surrendering

What does it mean to surrender?


To surrender is to release into the great unknown instead of clinging on for dear life. To surrender is to release the false sense of control and know that everything is happening for me, instead of to me. When you know that you have shown up and been your authentic self, then you know that with ease you can surrender the outcome because it wasn’t about the outcome.


It was about the journey.

Surrendering is not defeat. It's knowing you are exactly where you're supposed to be, in alignment, with your true self.


So often, we think when all hope is lost during battle, we have to wave the white flag and surrender. The truth is, there never was a battle to be won or lost.


I invite you to release the notion that you are at war with yourself or anyone else. Instead, imagine knowing we are all connected, and the act of surrendering is actually to say, "I trust."


I trust there is something greater than just this thing that has taken hold of my attention. I trust I am exactly where I am supposed to be.


I surrender.


If you are having trouble surrendering, here are three questions to ask yourself. You might find all three questions helpful, or maybe just one or two. There is no right or wrong, you might just want to feel peaceful in the moment.


  1. Have I taken a step back to see the whole picture that I wish to surrender?

  2. Am I still being reactionary to what I wish to surrender? If so, can I breathe into the experience to observe instead of react?

  3. How does my body feel? Am I feeling constricted, too focused, and tight? Or am I feeling spacious, at ease, and peaceful?

If you have read this and still are having trouble surrendering, please feel free to reach out. If you are wondering where to start, I offer classes, one-to-one programs, and in-person retreats. If you are resonating with my vibration, I would love to work with you.
