The Art of Surrender
I know your first thought must be it is easier said than done. If you are not practicing surrender then you must be doing a lot of controlling. Control mode shifts the mind from thought to thought and from past to future rapidly and results in little or no concentration, poor memory, and no present awareness. Control is a result of being attached to a specific outcome usually an outcome that is best suited for you rather than the greater good of all. Control mode is rooted in fear. How do I balance control and surrender and move beyond my fears? Let’s take a journey inward. Thoughts are the source of all we do and all we see before us. We can choose to think anything and with those thoughts stimulates sensations. When you stay with a sensation and with a thought the thought becomes a belief. What we choose as a belief system really inhibits our growth and evolution. If everything is a possibility and there are infinite possibilities then every possibility always exists in the great un-manifested, and no thought, belief or action can change that. What you listen to is your choice, as it is with your thoughts. Core beliefs are rooted in your sub-conscious mind, formed from the day we are born by our dependency on others for survival. Your core beliefs cause you to think and behave in specific ways. They are rooted in your sub-conscious mind that either support or suppress your personal power. Your core beliefs define your comfort zone. They are the foundation upon which all of your expectations are formed. Core beliefs are like energy magnets that pull toward you—via the Law of Attraction—what you think is true about yourself and the world around you. Life doesn’t feel right when your core beliefs do not agree with who you really are. This feeling of being disconnected is the cause of all negative emotions, hence a need to control. The quality of your life is the direct result of the quality of your beliefs. We can easily change our Conscious beliefs when new information is presented. This is the gift of freewill. It is a powerful act of courage that helps you surrender attachment to the thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back. Now go look in the mirror and say, “I have the courage and the freewill to activate my personal power as a conscious creator and think something that evokes a more positive emotion.” If you want to know what your core beliefs are, all you have to do is pay attention to how you express your personal, individual I AM’s. Your “I AM’s” point directly to your core beliefs. The way you are on your yoga mat is exactly the way you are in your life. Let’s take Action! Ask yourself and or contemplate the following;
  • Do my I AM’s align or resist my true nature?
  • Choose an I AM thought that makes you feel better and don’t try to analyze the resistance. “I am consciously manifesting my beautiful life.”
  • Consciously choose to think something that evokes a more positive emotion and do it with an attitude of gratitude. It is the ultimate arcanum to activate your personal power as a conscious creator. “My thoughts are a reflection of my reality.”
  • Does the manner in which I live reflect my values and attitudes?
I invite you to surrender and let go of control. Choose to live deliberately. Live a life of quality and value that allows you to express your true gifts and passions. Join me, Joanne and Joshua at AHA. We are here to inform and empower you to explore the infinite possibilities.
