Riding the Waves of Change

Have you ever noticed how the energy of a wave goes down before it goes up into the cresting wave? The same is true with our spiritual development.

A person’s level of consciousness or vibrational frequency will dictate how energy affects their lives. Those who have awakened spiritually to the truth of their own divinity, and are following their true heart’s desires will be as surfers moved forward in a positive direction by the accelerated energies now penetrating the Earth’s atmosphere. Those who have ignored or only intellectualized their spirituality and have not lived their lives under the direction of their higher guidance will be at the bottom of the wave or at the bottom of the ocean, so to speak as the accelerated frequencies raise the tide in human consciousness.

Many of us remember the events that forced us into waking up. I do. I was in the pits of depression and going through divorce. At that place, the lowest I had ever been, I found that the only answer was to give up, to surrender to something bigger, higher; to God-Goddess. Many people have to reach the bottom before they can agree to allow their ego mind (small self), not stop trying to run (ruin) their lives. All twelve-step programs are based on this principle of surrender and this is the most important part of spiritual growth. Not only do we need to surrender to our higher selves, but we need to agree to allow our bodies, personalities, and intellect to be used by the higher self, which is the divine within us. We then become conscious co-creators with the Creator of the universe.

Surrendering doesn’t mean giving up control of our lives to someone else. It does mean surrendering our resistance to remembering the truth of who we are. It does mean surrendering our need to always be “right.” It does mean surrendering our fear, limitations, and excuses.

We have so many layers of illusion on top of the truth of who we are. Those imprints and patterns are given to us by our family, culture, or religion we are born into. They are drilled in further when we go to school, choose a career, get married, go to college, enter military service, or have children. We can even have overlays of being survivors or victims of the holocaust, a war, a disease, a bombing, a storm, a failed marriage.

Identity with any organization—whether it is spiritual, political, athletic, or economic—causes mental patterns to form over the truth of who we are. All these roles and identities must be recognized, surrendered, and transmuted. When we agree to surrender the body, mind, and emotions to be controlled by the oversoul (higher self, God, Goddess, etc.), we still have free will. We still have a right to negotiate each deal and decision. I might remind you that surrender never happens all at one time. It is a daily process! But, the more we surrender, the happier we are and the smoother life flows. Then, we are able to rise above the water’s surface and simply surf the waves!
