What is your divine surrender?

Whenever we are overcome with fear, it is always attached to a concern of loss at some level.  Perhaps it’s the loss of a relationship or loved one, a material possession, a job, a reputation, or _______(fill in the blank).  Whatever the perceived loss, making the divine surrender will always be the answer.  This demands that we let go of our need to control the universe, doesn’t it?  It’s always about the lesser giving way to the greater and our willingness to be the vessel through which it may happen.  In the process, we may have to make peace with the fact that something we have been clinging to must be released.  (In my Living a Legacy series class I ask in session 1, what are you holding on to and what seems to be holding on to you…)  This can be a very personal and difficult thing to do, but it is how we make way for the greater expression of the divine through us and as us.  Our true defining moment then is when we open to this awareness and give way to it.

Try to remember today that it could be your defining moment to reveal who you really are…to yourself and to the world.  Today in your writing explore what you may be holding on to and maybe this is the day to release it and reveal yourself to the world…it is one of the best things you can do for yourself…trust me, I have been doing it lately and it is liberating!  I was once told by a very wise woman, you build self-esteem by doing esteemable acts!  Remember: People that love you get who you are!  Which reminds me, have you found your “tribe” yet?  They will “get” you!  Namaste!
