SURRENDER EXPERIENCE

“The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of his surrender.” ~William Booth

Our subconscious is continually receiving and sending messages…perhaps the most important message coming from the social environment is to achieve a successful role and identity…although it contains misleading ideas and beliefs our subconscious accepts the message without question… unfortunately it then takes on the meaning and purpose of our life, creating a preoccupation with our self image control, although it is inconsistent with life’s spontaneous rhythms…all of which result in a feeling of alienation and being lost in a confusing world.

There is need for an alternative message that would neutralize our conflicts created by social conditioning…paradoxically the needed message appears to be completely opposite from our social assumptions…basically they are “let go” and “surrender”…if this message is received and integrated into the subconscious, it will free us from much of the harshness of our social demands, but more important creates the spontaneous opening of the door to the intuitive mind.

Most spiritual practices attempt in their various ways to encourage us to learn this message …but unfortunately our basic belief in a separate self with a need to achieve goals is so deeply embedded in our subconscious mind that introducing a message which appears totally opposite will meet considerable resistance.

My favorite technique is through some basic form of word suggestion…when faced with a disturbing emotional situation I will begin repeating the words “let go ” and  “surrender” which have been particularly effective in freeing me from many unnecessary expectations…these words need to be sincerely repeated over a period of time and take on the form of a prayer…while most people pray to enhance their expectations, the real blessing is received when we surrender a demanding expectation resulting in the surprise opening of a liberated and non-judgemental intuitive mind.

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” ~Earl Nightingale
