Wanted to modify a behavior or change a situation only to have it stubbornly remain the same?
Stood at turning point and weren’t sure which way to go?
Change can be scary, hard and take a lot of work or we can learn the fine art of surrender, of letting go of what was so we can allow what will be to happen. Allowing the magic to just happen.
What? Surrender? Let go? How does that facilitate change?
As I write this an old song “This Magic Moment” by the Drifters started playing in my mind. OK, so I am dating myself but that moment we let go magic does happen. Change is just a matter of making a new choice in the moment.
So how do you make that new choice?
Have you ever played tug of war? With people on both sides of a rope you pull as hard as you can. What if one side just lets go? The other side falls down and while they are struggling to get up you are victorious. Change happens. So practice letting go of the old unwanted behavior, don’t fight them just let go.
Try it. See what happens and let me know. I love reading your comments. And of course if you have questions I love answering them as well!
Play with surrender. What thoughts, feelings and successes do you have?
With love and aloha,
