If we are not in alignment with our spirit, it simply means we must do the work to make ourselves so. Surrender allows us to face the thing we fear before it becomes a reality. Most of the time, the thing we fear has absolutely no power, yet we brace ourselves for the worst possibility.
In that defensive posture, we keep our minds fixed on what could or might happen. The fear of facing that imaginary negative outcome is what keeps us paralyzed. Surrender places us in the offensive position.
It gives us the opportunity to plan, and to move according to the plan. When we surrender, we mentally go to the end, through the thing that we fear, which in effect releases fearful thoughts from the mind. It helps you realize that no matter what happens, you will be able to handle it.
Surrender helps you to become willing to live through the experience, without giving your entire life over to it. It also makes room in your heart and mind for the Divine to give yo a new idea, a new thought, a new direction.
When you surrender, give up the fearful thought, and give up the control of a situation. This will help you to open the way for a miracle to take place and for faith to guide you.
