Surrender – A technique for freedom
In battle, surrender is giving up your resistance to an enemy, this is rarely ever a beneficial outcome , often synonymous with a loss and death. However, when looking at surrender to use in your internal world, it is a powerful asset.
Surrendering as a powerful asset and secret of happiness
For a very long time, I have felt very sad for a number of different reasons, and I have held on to that sadness. Even when everyone around me is very happy I’ve felt sad. This may be true for many of you reading this. Why? My guess is, that as a child and young person I was never allowed to be myself . I feared what other people would think of me if they truly experienced who I really was. I feared that I would be ostracised and criticised. And so I became sad.
My sadness is my resistance to being my self and essentially a happy self-expressed person. My surrendering to my sadness and allowing myself to feel happy and making it okay to feel happy has ultimately lead me to this discovery.
Just to sound a little cinematic, surrendering to my sadness and feeling, my feelings has released me from my prison of sadness to which I cling to and identify with so much. It has set me free.
What does surrender feel like? and how do you do it?
It is true surrender is a feeling, for me. It started with the thought “It’s okay to let yourself feel happy”. I immediately felt a weight lifted off my shoulders and I felt lighter in my physical body. I had a somatic response with was directly correlated to my state of mind. This is perhaps the most obvious way to surrender. Just by thinking.
So, send the intention to allow for surrender in your life, just by thinking about surrender, if this is your desire. It is a law of the universe that you must experience this in your life.

Loved this. I know how simple it sounds but tough to imbibe but it’s worth to learn this.
Love this! I was first introduced to the concept of acceptance and surrendering at a meeting of a local chronic pain group. At the time, I resisted the concept. Years later, I learned that acceptance of pain is necessary to move forward and see things clearly. And that acceptance or surrendering doesn’t mean giving in. Thanks for sharing, Arora!
Very motivating thoughts.
I believe we must do our best & then surrender to God.
This is such a meaningful post Ms Arora. Very emotional yet relatable. I hope things are better now, keep it up x Doni
