5 Steps To Spiritual Surrender

blog mindset spirituality Feb 07, 2018

Surrender is extremely important in life because we have a tendency to want to control everything. We have all these steps of how we're going to reach our lofty goals and then we become very rigid.

But the truth of the matter is that life and the universe are on their own plans. Sometimes, there's a higher purpose out there for us and things don't always turn out the way we want them to. But in the end, they are always going to turn out better if we trust, have faith, and surrender.

Step 1: Pray for the highest good 

Instead of wanting things to turn out the way we want them to, we can instead come from a place of higher good. This allows us to be open to the infinite possibilities of much greater things.

If we're always praying for the higher good, that is when we allow for bigger things to happen.

Step 2: Focus on what’s thriving

We tend to drown ourselves in our thoughts and in what could have been. This creates another energy of resistance in our life, which is clearly not surrendering.

Step 3: Obstacles are detours in the right direction

This one is big. With every obstacle that we have, there is a chance for us to learn something, for us to grow from. That obstacle is there for a very specific reason: to allow us to rise above that very obstacle—to grow and mature. There's a lesson in there that's going to lead us in the right direction.

A barrier may come up because we thought we were going to go one direction, but instead, that's not really the path we were meant to be on. We were meant for something bigger, a greater purpose, and that can actually shift us in a different direction. Simply put, an obstacle isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's really just the way we approach it and have a perspective on it.

Step 4: Ask for a sign

Sometimes, we just need to ask the universe if we're going in the right direction. We just need that confirmation and understand that everything is happening the way it is meant to. So don't be afraid to ask the universe for a sign.

Step 5: Try and surrender more

There is always more surrender. There's always a greater way to find more ease in your life, to go with the flow of life. Every worry, every fear, every anxiety, and every unforgiveness is all resistance and not surrender. Instead of having so much tension and resistance, simply start to accept. Create an intention that everything is as it is meant to be in every moment of your life at every second. That is true surrender.
