Just surrender - Daily Love with Mastin Kipp

Just surrender

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I’ve been in Bali with our Writer’s Mastermind and we have an incredible Balinese Thanksgiving – with local food and yes, even some pumpkin pie.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

It’s ironic that the top of this week’s Daily Love TV is surrender, because that’s exactly what I had to do to be able to publish this episode.

The Wi-Fi in Bali is not always that great, and we had a hard time uploading a video from Bali back to the US where our editing team could edit the episode.

So – what did I have to do? That’s right – surrender.

And it sucked because I wanted to get this out before Thanksgiving, but there was nothing I could do to make it happen, today is the soonest we could get this episode to you.

And it’s powerful. Surrender is an important tool in your personal growth tool belt. At the end of the day, we can try, argue and fight – but we must surrender. Surrender is not the same thing as giving up. It’s about giving in to your greater destiny, calling and purpose.

This is a powerful concept, because many times we think we have to go it alone. Or that we have to have all the answers. But that’s not the case. You never walk alone, and it’s important to leave space for greater guidance to come into your life.

Once you’ve watched this episode, leave a comment and let me know who or what you are going to surrender today. And – if you’ve had success in this area leave a comment let us know how you did it.

Together, we can grow into who we are meant to me.

Sending you so much LOVE from Bali,

Hey there it’s Mastin Kipp Founder of TheDailyLove.com and author of the book Daily Love: Growing into Grace and welcome to Daily Love TV.

We are filming again this week from Bali and so excited to have you here. And one of the words that just hits really hard for me when I am here in Bali is the word surrender. And I can tell you that when we think about this word surrender especially in the West it can really have a negative connotation because we kind of assume that ‘surrender’ is giving up, we think of it almost as failure, failure and giving up kind go hand in hand.

But really if you look at any process, spiritual process, or 12 step process, any transformational process, surrender to a higher power, surrender to your own desire, surrender to your own self-care your own self-worth, you really want what your heart desires that’s the process.

The first step of the 12 step process is to admit that we are powerless. Right? Whenever we have to forgive we have to accept what has happened to us. So surrender has become a very powerful tool in the transformational tool kit and Bali is such an incredible environment for this topic to come up. So I want to talk a little about what surrender is and what surrender isn’t. So surrender is not, I repeat is not failure. Right? Surrender does not mean you have done something wrong, surrender does not mean you are weak, surrender does not mean you have given up.

Surrender means that you want to break through to a higher level in your life, and you have come to admit that on some level the way that you are currently operating is not serving you in coming to that next level. So if you think about the areas that you are stuck; you are stuck financially, you’re stuck physically, you’re stuck romantically, you’re stuck in your business, maybe you are stuck in your body, there are so many ways we can be stuck and not moving forward having that progress.

The thing that you have to consider in that area where you are stuck, your best thinking got you there, consider that for a moment your best thinking got you there. What that means is, is that a new level of thinking has to come through. Right? So that means that we have to open and surrender certain levels of thinking or belief systems in order for us to arise in certain directions. That’s why many times we tend to meet transformation on our knees.

Many times when people find The Daily Love, you know, they don’t find this blog on their best day. They normally find this on a downturn, when something has gone wrong in their relationship, something has gone wrong in their life and they are looking for transformation or inspiration to change their life. So in order to do that we have to get very clear on the beliefs and the habits that we have that are really holding us back. So think about this for a second, when you think about the areas in your life where you are stuck, in fact just think about 1 area in your life where you are stuck, right. Think about one area where you want to break through, what has your belief system and thought process in that area up until now?

Maybe it’s been I am not good enough, maybe it’s been I am not creative, maybe it’s been there is something wrong with me, my best days are behind me, whatever it might be really think about the thought process that really seems to keep you stuck. And then can your prayer this week be “Dear God, Dear source, Dear higher power, I surrender this thinking to you. I know that this thinking has stopped me. Show me how to transform my thinking, show me how to surrender this thinking that has held me back. And show me a new way of thinking, a new way of being.”

You know when you ask to be guided, when you ask for signs life, God, the Divine being will show up for you and give you signs specifically just for you so you can understand and know what they are. And there is a very specific curriculum for you, and that process is really surrender.

So if you are coming up a lot against a lot of resistance, life is really trying to show you something, life is trying to show you that there is another way another option that you have not considered until now. So know this, when you change your thinking you think you are going to die. You are not going to die, everything is going to be alright. You are going to step into some uncertainty as your life starts to conform but that’s ok, the heart, the soul, and the spirit deals in uncertainty. So just for today “Dear God, show me how I can change my thinking. There is my old belief system that I have had, show me how I can change my thinking. There is my old belief system that I have had, show me a new way of thinking.”

So what I would like you to do, you may be watching this on YouTube you may be watching this on Facebook, head on over to TheDailyLove.com and on the comment below this video let me know what belief system what thought process that you have had that has held you back.

Maybe its been I am not good enough, I have to put everybody else first instead of me, whatever that thought process is let me know below this video.

Also let me know what the new thought process is going to be and how you are going to surrender that frustration in being stuck to that higher power and ask to be guided. Also is you have done the surrender process before in the past and you have really asked for guidance, share your success stories because I am really curious. Some people are meeting us for the first time, some people are veterans of personal growth and have a lot of experience in that area.

Either way, hop on over to the blog let us know where you are at and how you are going to apply the lessons learned today. And most importantly and as always here at Daily Love TV you know what to do find the courage to get out there, take action, and make it real. I’ll see you next week!
