Sometimes we need to learn our lessons the hard way. Sometimes it takes a few loving knocks over the head from the Universe before we finally receive the message. Sometimes we grow the most through challenge.
Over the past 12 months I have learnt a lot about surrender, trust and flow as a result of the various waves of change that have thrust themselves into my life. At times I have felt like a victim to these changes. Like they were happening to me and I was just an innocent bystander. This is when I have struggled with them the most.
I have noticed that in the moments where I fight and resist, label the experience as bad or wrong, and become emotional mess in the turmoil that surrounds me, all I am doing is adding fuel to the already blazing fire.
It has taken me several big periods of change, to finally learn how to navigate this experience more smoothly.
Rather than resisting, I learning to accept. Rather than fighting, I am learning to surrender. Rather fearing, I am learning to trust. And as a result life is feeling a lot more peaceful and effortless.
There can be a real tendency to want to ‘hold it all together’ and cling to the old as it starts to change around you. But, I encourage you to take a deep breath and dive into the knowing that there is a bigger plan unfolding in your life right now. Maybe you just can’t see it.
What If Life Knew Better Than I Did?
In today’s video I share some guidance that came through for me in a recent journaling session. It was gorgeous and comforting wisdom that reminded me that even if sometimes life appears to be crumbling around you, that there is always a reason.
As this guidance flowed onto my pages, I found myself exploring these questions;
+ What if life always knew what was best for me?
+ What if it was creating changes and experiences to help me let go of what was no longer right for me, and make space for what is?
+ What if there was actually a perfect, divinely inspired plan being arranged for my highest good?
+ What if all I had to do was get out of the way, surrender, trust and flow with life and know that it always knew what was best?
I want you to notice how you feel as you sit with these new possibilities. For me, I instantly felt my shoulders drop, my breathing deepen and my whole body soften. I felt myself let go.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this practise of surrender and trusting life. How do you feel about letting go of ‘your way’ and learning to flow more with ‘life’s way’? Leave me a comment below.
