“Surrender my pretty…….”
I’ve heard this line more than I care to remember and not from watching re-runs of the Wizard of Oz!
has at some stage gently urged me to Surrender.
“Surrender to what?” I’d angrily interject.
In “The Artist’s Way”, by Julia Cameron, which I am currently reading, it talks of positive affirmations.
“An affirmation is a positive statement of (positive) belief, and if we can become one tenth as good at positive self-talk as we are at negative self-talk, we will notice an enormous change. Affirmations help to achieve a sense of safety and hope.”
The following was one of Julia Cameron’s Creative Affirmations:
“My dreams come from God and God has the power to accomplish them.”
(For those uneasy with the term God, please substitute what bodes well for you – Universe, All That Is, Creator, Source etc etc )
“My dreams come from the Universe, and the Universe has the power to accomplish them”.
Of course I know this deep down but the constant reminder of Surrender means that I am not putting into practice this knowledge.
We all come from the same source, the same awareness, the one mind – we are part of it and it is part of us.
As the physical being, we tend to block the creative flow of the Universe or the Creator by constantly stopping this flow, through negative thoughts and beliefs.
The Universe is constantly showing us the way, presenting us with occasions to show our strengths, our gifts and our talents but all too often we block these through fear, jealousy anger and even hatred.
We have to learn to step out of the way and fully trust in the Universe’s master plan for us all.
Surrender and let the Creator – create, through your physical vehicle a life rich in happiness, love and joy – just as it intended for all inhabitants of this beautiful planet of ours.
Surrender, and let Spirit show you the way.
(I intend to put this into practice. Stat!)
