How To Truly Surrender

Whenever you feel like you have too much on your plate — whether it’s been dished up by you or other people — the time and space that you need to make miracles happen aren’t there anymore.

A crucial part of manifesting is making space, and that applies to your schedule too. It’s especially true if you’re a creative. If you’re trying to create something beautiful in the form of art or words, it soon becomes impossible when your head is swirling with to-do lists and appointments.

Your channel gets so clogged up that there’s no room for new ideas to come through.

It can also make you so fixed on a certain path that you can’t surrender to where the Universe wants to lead you next. By being open; being willing to change; being prepared to end things even when they’ve been working well for you — that’s when you are truly surrendering to the possibility of being on your highest path.

Instead of surrendering to other people, surrender to what YOU really want instead.

Allow the Universe to sweep through your life and make any changes it wants to make. It will show you these through feelings, signs, and things which aren’t working or don’t feel good anymore. Allow yourself to make these changes by trusting that there’s always more to be revealed in the next phase.

Allow yourself to have space in your schedule for what you really want to do.

When you love yourself enough, that’s when you learn the power of saying no and surrendering to what you truly want at the cost of all the things you don’t.

That will probably mean not replying to every DM, especially when you can sense that they’re soliciting ones hoping to attach to your energy. It will mean turning down meetings and offers for collaboration if the payoff doesn’t feel worth the time you’ll be investing. Undoubtedly, it will mean your own desires, wishes and energy becoming sovereign.

Allow yourself to be led by your heart and your desires.

Allow yourself space for inspiration and guidance by tuning out the noise.

Allow the Universe to lead you, knowing that life is an ongoing path and that by standing still you’ll never know what’s next.

Ask yourself these questions — they’re good ones to journal on next time you’re setting intentions:

  • What am I actually meant to be doing right now?
  • What has served its time in my life?
  • What is next for me?
  • What do I need to make space for?
  • What do I need to start saying “no” to?

By knowing these answers, you can realign yourself with what you’re meant to be doing instead of just what you should be doing.

No one else but you owns your life or knows what you want from your time on Earth.

Trust the possibility that everything you want can actually come true for you, as long as you’re willing to surrender and say “no” to everything which isn’t it.
