I had another guided meditation in mind when I sat down at my computer to type it up, but as soon as my fingers hit the keys an entirely different meditation began to take form. This meditation came to be as a result of my own resistance to “going with the flow” – go with the flow meaning trusting in the Universe, not getting worked up over setbacks, and not resisting change or forcing something that isn’t mean to be. Up until very recently I had myself fooled believing that I was a go-with-the-flow type of person, but during some shadow work I was blindsided by the fact that I am not that person – yet. I’ve been working diligently repeating the mantra, “I surrender,” whenever I feel myself getting worked up over something that’s out of my control or isn’t going according to my plans.
This meditation is wonderful for everyone, but especially for those who have a hard time going with the flow or have some control issues (no shame, no judgement – I’m right there with you). Take some deep breaths and get settled in.
