Surrender


Angel Card for today:  Surrender

Does surrendering mean giving up, languishing in defeat or feeling less than? 

Surrendering is letting go of what we think should happen and being present with what happens. The natural flow of life shows us that clinging to beliefs, stories, grievances, past deeds or words taints our perception of the present moment. 

Instead of being with each moment as new and full of possibility we have preconceived moments of expectation. In this expecting, there is no room for freshness and change. Indeed when the inevitable change happens, we are surprised. In letting go we acknowledge that change is the only constant.
