The word surrender is capable of evoking intense emotions. Often times we perceive it as admitting defeat against unbeatable odds but there is a deeper meaning. Another way to think about surrender is finding a better way to live by letting things flow naturally. Spiritual surrender is about humility.
What is spiritual surrender?
The simple answer is it is Mushin, which means no mind, and no heart. This is a flow state where you aren’t overly analytical or emotional. When you begin to embody this state, it may seem cold or distant. In reality it is one of the most compassionate ways of approaching life. Here’s why.
Benefits of spiritual surrender
Mushin is about humility. You see, most of the difficulty and frustration others face in the world is from trying to control the uncontrollable. When we begin to see ourselves as a part of something greater this relieves us of a great burden but first we have to get over our fear of letting go of the wheel. After we get over the fear of accepting our true lack of control we can begin to work on what we can control, ourselves.
Personal accountability is power
While the rest of the world is off blaming everyone else for their problems, the wise look within. Have you ever considered the central theme to all your problems? I have and the funny thing is it was me!!! When you begin to look at the world from a more objective perspective you begin to realize that most of your problems actually arise in your thoughts or your emotional response to your thoughts. Fear, anxiety, worry, anger are actually an abuse of our greatest gift, our imagination.

How this topic applies to me today
When the high priestess card came up tonight all I could do is laugh. Lately I’ve been living in a frantic panic because of all the blessings I’ve earned. The general message of the card is it’s time to relax and tap into you intuition. The exact opposite of how I’ve been living. When we are able to step into the space of spiritual surrender we can get divine guidance to help us navigate whatever happens.
