In the last article in this series we looked at courage. In this one we’re examining surrender. While surrender might seem to be the direct opposite of courage, it is actually a powerful tool in its own right.
The very word ‘surrender’ has a number of negative connotations: losing a fight, lacking the ability to impose ourselves on a situation, giving in or giving up. This is precisely where the power of surrender lies: Ascension is a sentient process that knows where it’s taking us, and sometimes the quickest and least painful way to move forwards is simply to lie back and let go.
In an earlier In5D post entitled Hyperbolic funnel: the shape of Ascension I described the energetic trajectory of the Ascension process:
A hyperbolic funnel begins as energy moving in slow, wide, circles of gradually diminishing radii. As the circles diminish in size the energy gathers speed and downward (i.e. spiral) movement begins. As the energy approaches the centre of the funnel, its speed accelerates exponentially until it plunges through the heart of the vortex and emerges in a transformed state. Because of its transformational properties, the hyperbolic funnel is the natural shape of the Ascension process.
As a society, we have been conditioned to achieve our life goals through the forceful expression of all the energy and means at our disposal. On the Ascension path, this plain doesn’t work. You can’t force anything to happen—it has to arise organically from within. But, particularly during the early stages of Ascension, this truth is lost on us and we may expend vast amounts of energy trying to swim against the gradually accelerating Ascension spiral—and completely failing.
Surrender is like a water ride at a theme park. Relax and let go. Yes, you’re going to get wet—very wet. Your past 3D life is gone and it’s not coming back. It wasn’t worth living in the first place, no matter how nostalgic it seems after a few years of Ascension symptoms.
Your past 3D life is gone and it’s not coming back. It wasn’t worth living in the first place, no matter how nostalgic it seems after a few years of Ascension symptoms.
Sometimes it’s hard not to look at the lives of other people, seemingly unaffected by Ascension, and wish we were standing in their shoes. It may be appealing, but that’s disempowered thinking and achieves nothing. Put on your swimsuit and let go. You signed up for this ride and you’re going under. The more you can surrender, the sooner the shiny new 5D you will splutter to the surface.
