The Importance of Surrender & How to Feel it NOW
Ready to let go of suffering and get out of your own way?
It’s important to understand what it means to surrender and how surrendering results in positive changes in your health and life. Stress, fear, and uncertainty make it harder to surrender and easier to control, force, and attach to things. But when you “grip” life from a place of control, force, or attachment, you block the results you’re trying to get. You frustrate yourself, push people away, and feel disconnected. Nobody wants to be this way. You get programmed (subconsciously) and, the good news is, you can change.
What Does It Mean To Surrender?
When you surrender, you accept what is while trusting the natural flow and unfolding of things. The intention of surrender is to clear your connection to the present moment. You stop resisting and start embracing your journey. It’s not about being lazy, but taking relaxed action from a place of love. Deeply surrendering is an act of self-love. It’s showing that you love and believe in yourself so much that you trust you’re capable of handling anything. So in this moment, you’re free to FULLY ENJOY the gift of the present.

Got a kung fu grip on control? Feeling stressed, exhausted, drained, and depleted? Always putting in a lot of effort to get things done? Do you believe you have to have everything “figured out” for your life to work? Does it feel like there’s never enough time in the day? Is it challenging to quiet your mind and fully relax?
You’re suffering and surrender is here to help. To surrender, you have to let go of what’s getting in the way of you connecting with the present moment.
Limiting subconscious beliefs around trust, safety, and self-worth make it hard to surrender and relax. Although letting go takes practice, it’s worth it to create more enjoyable outcomes. Change can be uncomfortable, but so is feeling stuck and frustrated. You deserve better. Get help surrendering the limiting subconscious B.S. (Belief Systems), buried emotions, and energetic incoherence holding you back. Then, you can release the weight of the past and your worries about the future to fully enjoy your life now.
Get Started Surrendering
First, find what you need to surrender. Got worry, fear, anxiety, stress, or other “anchors” weighing you in the past or future? At the core of many limiting thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, are common threads of low self-worth, feeling unsafe, and trust issues. This is expressed by trying to control outcomes via over-planning, overthinking, overanalyzing, overdoing, and overachieving. You can’t plan or force life, but you can surrender to the present where you have the power to create a better life. With practice, you’ll embrace your ever-changing journey as an exciting adventure!
Benefits of Surrender
By surrendering, you give the Universe permission to assist you in creating the life you want. Surrendering to life is the key to positive change with your health and healing. By staying present, you calm your nervous system to live more from a relaxed, healing state. You also expand your mind to see great potential and possibilities. No more playing it small, repeating old programs, or giving away your energy to things that drain you. When you release your limitations, you create space for NEW energy, people, opportunities, and miracles.
The more you LET GO, the more things FLOW.
9 Steps To Surrender More, Now
The practice of surrendering isn’t about doing nothing. It’s about taking action from a place of love while loving things as they are. Rather than reacting and making decisions out of fear, you take relaxed action with faith that things always work out for your highest good. Everything is happening FOR you to learn, grow, and experience. So continue to build your love, trust, and joy and you’ll find yourself surrendering to the present more effortlessly. Now that you have a better understanding of the importance of surrender, follow these steps to surrender to life…
1. Identify Your Blocks
Begin identifying what you want to surrender. What are you holding onto or trying to control that needs to be released? Do you treat yourself poorly or allow others to treat you poorly? Trauma, hurtful memories, and painful emotions are all things we hold onto that need to be released. They don’t need to be re-lived. They need to live where they belong… in the past. This is where PSYCH-K can be beneficial.
2. Clear Your Limitations
PSYCH-K rapidly changes your limiting subconscious beliefs and perceptions so you can begin creating the reality you want. PSYCH-K, along with our special blend of modalities, helps you transform limitations, calm your nervous system, and harmonize your energy. Get out of your own way to surrender to the abundant flow of life!

3. Let Go of Attachment
Attachment creates pressure and resistance. Have you ever noticed when you “give up” how that thing you were working so hard to get just naturally appears? Getting what you want is much easier when you let go and flow. Attaching doesn’t mean you love, care, or deserve more. It means you’re trying to grip where there’s nothing to grip. It’s good to have goals, but it’s not beneficial if you narrowly focus and fixate so much that you miss the big picture. Unhealthy attachments keep you stuck and dependent on external influences dictating how you feel and live. Attaching drains you of your energy and thus your power.
“Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force.” — Lao Tzu
4. Lighten Up
Don’t take life too seriously. Notice when you grip, attach, and control. Attachments anchor you out of the present moment and chain you to the cycle of suffering. They drain your energy and prevent you from setting sail on the ocean of exciting possibilities and unlimited potential. Surrendering allows you to embrace the moment and liberates you to move forward in an empowering way. Make the shift from seriousness to play. Welcome more laughter, love, and joy into everything you do. Do things you enjoy that quiet your mind and connect you with yourself such as movement, singing, dancing, meditation, spending time in nature, journaling, breathing, or doing yoga. Invite your inner child out to play.
5. Slow Down
Does it feel like there’s never enough time? That’s because you’re not living in the present. Don’t worry, it’s never too late to completely lose track of time and enjoy life. Slow down to connect with the moment. Practice doing things slower, such as talking, breathing, eating, walking, driving, and other activities. How slow can you go? Even operating 10% slower makes a BIG difference. Place sticky notes around your home with reminders of your new tortoise-like qualities. Permit yourself to take breaks, check-in with yourself, and savor more. Although it can feel counterproductive to slow down, you become more present AND productive.
6. Recharge With Soul-Care
We’re human beings, not human doings. Our modern world operates at a hurried and stressful pace. The natural world, the one we’re designed to be in tune with, does not. That’s why things like nature-bathing are so beneficial for your health and well-being. So, don’t over-plan your day. Slow down, listen, and connect with your breath (a.k.a. “life force”). Take more time to do things you enjoy that help you feel relaxed and recharged. Prioritize your “higher” self-care, a.k.a. soul-care. Ask yourself, “What would benefit my mind, body, and soul right now?” When you take care of yourself, you feel better and live better. It’s not selfish to take time for yourself. You show up for others better and spread more kindness, laughter, and love.
Surrendering to what you need creates better results with your health & life.
7. Love Yourself
Self-love is the foundation for all success. When you love yourself unconditionally and know YOU ARE WORTHY, it’s easier to trust that you’re capable of handling anything. From this confident place, you’re able to allow yourself to find more joy now (instead of waiting to achieve some exhausting goal). Check out Nourish Yourself With Self-Love. Forgive yourself and permit yourself to stop carrying the past. You’re worthy of the best, now and always!
8. Strengthen Your Trust Muscle
When you don’t trust, you control. It’s an old protective mechanism meant to keep you safe, but now it’s sabotaging you. Control is an illusion that quickly drains your energy. Set intentions, stay present, and trust. To get comfortable feeling supported, spend time laying in a hammock, zero gravity chair, or sensory deprivation pod. Open yourself to the uncertainty of the moment with curiosity. How good could this get (if you allow it)? When you see everything as an opportunity to learn and grow, it takes the pressure off of having to know it all. Trusting allows you to approach decisions out of love instead of fear.
What you desire, the Universe wants for you AND more!
9. Enjoy Life, Now
Don’t wait to enjoy your life until some perfectly planned future time. Do what you enjoy. From now on, make, accept, and invite choices that create more joy in your life. Surrender the “blah” to find your bliss. Let yourself live in the openness of possibilities. Surrender is about being open, aware, and appreciative. Besides, it takes much less energy and is so much more enjoyable than trying to control things!
Hopefully, you now understand why surrender is so POWERFUL and how it can positively change your health and life. Got blocks? Need help surrendering to the cosmic flow and activating NEW possibilities in your life? We can help…
