Many people speak about the importance and necessity of Trusting and Surrendering as a means to deepen in their relationship with their Soul ( a term used to refer to our spiritual self or Source energy within ourselves) but often fall short of actually integrating these practices into their behaviors.
The expression “Let your will not my will be done” is commonly used by people who truly want to have their Soul lead their lives.
Although their prayers are sincere, many people are unaware that their desire to follow their Soul’s guidance and directives is often accompanied by a list of contingencies. Which sounds something like “I will follow your guidance and directives ‘Soul/ Source energy’ but don’t ask me to make a geographic move, change careers, leave a relationship, etc. When you give Source energy contingencies you’re not allowing it to lead your life.
Many people do not understand that our Soul always has our best interests in the forefront. Your Soul wants your human self to feel deeply loved, comforted, assured that all is well, that you are not alone in the universe, satisfied and nurtured in every aspect of your life. Also, Source energy is here to complete its soul mission or calling in life and it requires your human self to be its hands and feet!
From the perspective of Living in Alignment, Trust equates to yielding to your Soul and Surrender equates to merging with your Soul. When you’re listening to your Soul’s guidance you’re yielding and when you’re following your Soul’s guidance/promptings you’re merging with your Soul. Living in Alignment occurs when you are listening to and following the guidance/ promptings that Source energy continually provides.
In real time, Trusting and Surrendering to Source energy is about training your mind to defer to Source energy-to have this vital energy be in the proverbial driver’s seat.
To “Let go and let God” will require that your mind learns how to Trust & Surrender.
In your daily life, Trust and Surrender translates to getting/ keeping your mind out of the drivers seat. Instead of trying to control the outcome of what is happening in your life, your task is to calm your body and quiet your mind so you can hear your inner voice/ intuition (the voice of your Soul or Source energy within).
Instead of becoming hypervigilant about looking for the answers to your prayers. You go about living your life with the mindset that the answers to your prayers are always forthcoming. Knowing that Source energy is working behind the scenes to orchestra the best possible outcome for everything that is happening in your life. Trusting & Surrendering is about handing over the reigns to Source energy. The information that your mind requires to feel assured that all is well shall be revealed on an as needed basis. Again, your task is to stop trying to control outcomes and to move out of living in fear.
Developing the practice of being present in your daily activities will assist your mind to connect with and become aware of the workings of Source energy in your life. With increased awareness, your mind will gain the proof it needs to acknowledge that your Soul is more qualified, more skilled, more experienced to be in the driver’s seat than your mind/ ego.
As your awareness of the workings of Source energy increases, your mind will become assured that Living in Alignment is a practical, effective, and reliable approach to living life…
Your ability to Trust & Surrender to Source energy will develop naturally every time you listen to and follow the guidance and directives from your spiritual self.
