One aspect of manifestation that confuses a lot of people is how do you surrender and take action at the same time?
On the surface, it seems like these two concepts are complete opposites.
But the key to transcending this paradox lies in what you need to surrender.
How Do You Surrender While Manifesting?
The Law of Cause and Effect says that for every cause, there is an effect and for every effect, there is a cause.
In life, the primal cause for every effect that you experience is your thoughts.
So by changing your thoughts, you change the effects you experience.
Surrender doesn’t mean to give up your actions.
After you have raised your emotions to a higher vibration (refer to the Emotional Guidance Scale), then you take action.
When you give up a thought system of fear and realign with the thought system of love, you will be able to take action with more ease, confidence, and certainty.
You will be guided to the right people, situations, and outcomes.
You can rest easy knowing everything is being taken care of.
Giving up your attachment to negative thoughts is the true meaning of surrender.
Here are 3 steps on how to surrender and take action at the same time.
Step 1: Witness Your Misalignment
If you want to surrender and take action at the same time, the first step is to witness your misalignment.
As I teach in my manifestation course, the first step to change is awareness.
Take a moment to feel your discomfort and call out whatever negative thoughts you’re feeling right now.
Whether it’s fear, anger, or worry—simply witness your emotions without any judgment.
Shift your focus away from what’s happening externally and focus on what’s happening internally.
As I explain in Feeling Good, your external circumstances are a direct reflection of your internal state.
By shifting the way you feel, your circumstances will shift along with it.
Step 2: Surrender Your Thoughts Through Prayer
The second step is to surrender your thoughts through prayer.
Praying may seem intimidating but it’s just a way for you to communicate with your higher power—the God of your own understanding.
It’s a powerful way to allow your higher power to transform your thoughts from fear back to love.
Use this prayer to shift your perception, “Universe, I am willing to see this situation differently. I step back and let you lead the way.”
Feel into the magnitude of the words and allow the feeling of inner peace to set in.
Your willingness to shift your perception paves the way for miracles.
Step 3: Take Action With Renewed Energy
The final step is to take action with renewed energy.
Now that you have surrendered your negative thoughts to be transformed, you can take action from a place of high vibration.
Your high vibration will begin to attract people, situations, and experiences that match your positive energy as a result of the Law of Attraction,
So listen to your higher self and take whatever action feels right to you.
There’s no big or small when it comes to taking action.
Whether it is a simple google search on how to start your own business or delivering a sales pitch to a new client.
You just need to take action from a place of spiritual alignment—a place that feels good.
As long as you remain aligned with love, your can trust that your actions will be greatly supported by the Universe.
One thing to note here is to not force yourself to take action.
Sometimes the best thing to do in a situation is to do nothing.
Sit back, relax, and let the Universe show you what to do.
