magic of surrender

The energy of surrender is magical, in that surrender instantly brings ease to any situation, relationship or endeavor.  And while most people equate surrender with resignation, we serve our manifestations greatly by deliberately invoking the magic of surrender.

These universal principles will help you to relax into the magic of surrender and achieve your goals with far less effort. 

Magic Of Surrender Principle #1:  There is a huge difference between power and force.


Of course, deliberately creating the life you desire requires a fair amount of focused intention. But in our quest to be intentional, we sometimes work too hard, and actually diminish our creative power.   And then our manifestation journey becomes one of hard work and struggle, not a joyful or natural unfolding.  

Forcing something to happen – or to unfold according to a plan we’ve constructed in our minds – exhausts our spiritual resources. Because in believing that we must generate the good that flows to us, we pinch ourselves off from the infinite stream.  

When we try to force a manifestation before its time, we are utilizing only our egos, the weakest part of our psychic anatomy. 

The magic of surrender lifts us out of the smallness of this limited view and allows us to glimpse far bigger possibilities. 

We’re at the height of our creative power when we’re going with – not against – the flow of life.  And this is why forcing the things we desire to happen only gets us so far.  To create results that are truly unpredictable, that launch us into a new way of being, we must surrender.

Magic Of Surrender Principle #2: Surrendering our will is not weakness. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful things we can do.   


Invoking the power of surrender does not mean you are giving up or shirking responsibility.  In surrendering, you are doing your part in the manifestation of your desires.  You are trusting that all of life is guided by an intelligent force that is perfectly capable of guiding you as well.  The magic of surrender is that it connects us with deeper impulses that don’t always make sense to our logical mind.  

All change requires stepping into the unknown, which usually brings with it a certain degree of discomfort.  It’s just not possible to grow into all that you desire to be while remaining perfectly comfortable.  To move forward, we have to leave some things behind, and this can feel risky or downright terrifying.  The solution to this is not to push ourselves to take bigger steps than we’re comfortable with.  We can focus instead on releasing the brakes that are holding us back from within.  In other words, when you run up against an inner or outer obstacle, the best thing to do is let go.    


Stepping into the magic of surrender is an acknowledgment that you do not need to generate your abundance.  You only need to receive it.  You were born into an abundant universe in which wellbeing reigns supreme.  And you’re entitled to as much of that wellbeing as you allow yourself to receive. 


Magic Of Surrender Principle #3:  Control is only an illusion, anyway.   


Our egos are fueled by a constant need to know and to remain in control.  They have us believe that the path to manifesting our dreams is to plan things out in meticulous detail.  And this is what sets us upon the hamster wheel of working hard and striving.  

Embracing the magic of surrender liberates us from this cycle of struggle, and frees us from the illusion of control.  When we give in to the magic of surrender, we open the door for divine guidance.      

It’s when we go beyond our previous ideas of what’s possible that the magic in life really happens.  So in every aspect of your life, you can ask yourself this simple question:  How much success, abundance and magic do I want to experience?  And that’s how much surrender you need. 

Surrender is directly correlated to satisfaction.  

Remember that the ego’s role is to hold on to what’s safe and known. But the extraordinary life you desire lives outside this familiar realm.   The magic of surrender is that it activates a greater power.  Life begins to manifest through you, and you begin to create realities that you never thought possible.
