Honestly, sharing the episode of Peaceful Surrender was such a privilege to experience. Being able to witness what surrender is from God was transformative. So often we are battling with ourselves…we are creating the war within.
What I have learned about surrendering to God’s will and timing is that when we are in alignment with that, we are also in alignment with ourselves…with our truth, purpose and passion.
This concept was new for me because I started to realize that I was truly in partnership with the great Creator. I think before I just assumed that God would take over and I’d be like a puppet on a string. That just didn’t feel good to me. As I learned about peaceful surrender, I truly saw how my true self and God’s will for me are actually one in the same. So yes, I was surrendering to God but in return He was extending the invitation for me to align with the highest divine version of myself.
I became so excited to follow God’s invitation as an active participant (co-creator) rather than feeling like a puppet on a string.
I also want to bring up the corrupt pattern of surrender on the earth. The world shows that when you finally are forced to surrender, you lose! That’s a LIE! When you surrender in the way it was originally intended by God, surrender means you WIN!
I ask myself these three important questions when I am seeking to align my will (using agency) with God’s will:
- What am I afraid of (fear being the root of pride, ego, doubt, judgement, etc.)?
- What is out of balance within myself, within the relationship, or within the experience?
- What did my soul want to learn from what is being created?
These questions end the war or battle going on and I’m free to open up with the power of knowledge and the understanding that there is a reason for my experiences. Once the war is over within me…I’m also ready to act on the promptings and instruction I receive.
Peaceful surrender is real and it’s the essence of who we really are. So, the final question always is…are you ready to step into your true divine self?
