“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
When you encounter a situation in your lives where you don’t know what to do, you don’t know how to proceed, or you don’t have a clue as to how you are going to get out of it, that is the perfect opportunity for you to experience surrender. There is something quite beautiful about the act of surrendering. It is ultimately a willingness to concede to the circumstances as they are.
You sometimes put a tremendous amount of pressure on yourselves, and that pressure is designed to get you to find a way out, to come up with a solution to the problem, or to eliminate the situation altogether. This is the way that your minds work. Your minds love a problem because it gives them meaning, purpose. It gives them something to do. But your minds are not privy to all of the information available, and therefore, they are not the most effective tool that you could employ to an impossible-seeming situation in your lives.
Surrender, however, is a wonderful tool. It is like saying to the universe that you don’t know how you are going to make something work. You don’t know how it’s all going to work out, but at the same time you are surrendering you are not giving up on your desire for the situation to play out in the way that you would prefer. You are just letting go of taking on all of that responsibility, placing it all on your shoulders, and thinking that you have to come up with the solution.
That type of pressure doesn’t bring you results very often. Oftentimes it keeps possibilities from coming to light for you. Pressure keeps you in the dark. Surrender, which is signified by a white flag, lets in more light. It is the way of letting go of struggle, letting go of the need to be the one who finds the solution, and letting in the light that will ultimately illuminate the path for you.
You have access to so much more when you are not trying so hard, because in your trying you are narrowing your focus. You are placing your attention only on that which you are able to conceive of, and you are blocking other possibilities from coming to you.
So we like surrender because we know how much help you really have, we know how much grace there is all around you, and we know that in surrender you allow the downloads to come to you. You allow for the unseen solution to come to light. And most of all, you release the pressure from yourselves.
When you do that, you have a momentary feeling of relief, and that feeling is why you create the problem in the first place. It’s the reason why you have the other end of the spectrum available to you. The pressure gives way to relief, and relief allows solutions to flow.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
How true & how timely! Surrender & FAITH or TRUST are analogous as another way to look at it - for some certain words trigger other emotions & one can miss the point, so don't get stuck on the words - chose what works for you, for your perspective is unique
