What does Surrender mean?Surrender is the process of letting go of that which we no longer need! Letting go of our RESISTANCE. Letting go of FEARS. Letting go of PAINFUL emotions. Letting go of thoughts or actions that cause negativity in our lives.
Resistance is our response to deeply held FEARS. What we most resist is what we most need to heal or change. I am sure you have all had the experience of wanting to do something new to create change in your life, only to find excuses, blocks, obstacles and ways to avoid the task or issue completely?
To surrender your old thoughts, beliefs, habits, friends, job, and lifestyle that no longer serves you does NOT mean that you are weak or giving up! It is actually the opposite!
It takes great COURAGE to face up to our FEARS, fight our resistance and create something new.
Surrender is a CATALYST for personal CHANGE
Surrender allows us to to be REBORN into a new consciousness, a new way of being!
Surrender brings a great sense of FREEDOM to your life.
Surrender brings you into CONNECTION with the universe, other people and most of all yourself!
Surrender & Birth
Surrender is an ESSENTIAL part of achieving a natural birth!
When a woman trusts her body, releases her fears and allows her body to do what it has been created to do, then natural birth is the usual result. You can also take it one step further and fully surrender yourself to the physiological process that is birth. It is in this state that ECSTATIC Birth becomes possible!
I experienced fear and resistance to the innate power in my body during my first child's birth. I had never experienced anything like it and the intensity brought up very deeply held fears about life and death. It wasn't until I surrendered to this power that my baby was able to be born, breech and beautiful!
Most women experience fear in childbirth at some stage of the process and enlightened support understands how to allay those fears and encourage the woman to fully surrender herself to the birth. In most cases, the medical model of birth only serves to create more fears and resistance with all of its protocols and high tech management of the process.
It is time the Medical System surrendered its control over a process that is at its heart natural and one of life's miracles!
