The Surrender Experiment
The Surrender Experiment With Amida Wealth
Michael Alan Singer is an American author, journalist, motivational speaker, and former software developer. In The Surrender Experiment: My Journey into Life’s Perfection, Singer tells his extraordinary story of what happened when after a deep spiritual awakening in his twenties, he decided to no longer let his personal fears and desires dictate his life but to simply surrender to what life had in store. Surrendering is being able to go one day at a time rather than obsessing about the future. It’s being able to go with the flow of our lives, working hard to make important changes but infusing our hard work with the energy of faith rather than fear. When we surrender, we allow life to flow. Wealth is not one thing; wealth is a mindset. In other words, everything that we do has money attached to it. Be willing to surrender because you trust wealth energy! Today is fun Sunday…let’s learn the beauty of surrender!
Beauty Of The Surrender Experiment
When you surrender, you stop forcing solutions on situations you can’t control and instead trust and have faith that there is a divine force taking care of everything in a perfectly orchestrated manner. This is a present state of gratitude and abundance. In trust, we face our life and make decisions in a peaceful way. In other words, we make decisions from a perspective of love, rather than fear or lack. This is especially important when making financial decisions in our lives. We are never lacking, always growing. In surrender we discover abundance. As a result, we make decisions that enhance our lives and encourage our financial wealth.
Four Ways to Practice The Surrender Experiment:
- Suspend judgment of yourself and others—First, always be kind to yourself and those around you. A simple experiment is to smile more, and to allow a soft and sincere smile to change your entire energy.
- Drop into your body —Secondly, notice fear, uncertainty, anxiety that is causing you to want to get control. Stay with this physical sensation in your body, the energy of uncertainty, that causes you to grasp for control. Be with it fully, allowing yourself to feel it. Relax and surrender to it. Relax your jaw, straighten your back, allow your shoulder to release. Just breathe.
- Be grateful for all the little things— Thirdly, think about everything that you are grateful for. Embrace the current state of abundance in your life. Be grateful for the space around you, fresh air, healthy lungs, and technology at your fingertips. We are lucky for this life.
- Stay in the present moment—Being present simply means you’re focused and engaged in the here and now, not distracted or mentally absent. When we look back or forward and live in that state, we forget to savor the now. We don’t get to truly experience the moment. Life is like a movie, it is a bunch of clips put together to tell a story. In other words, Wealth is the ability to fully experience life and embrace the journey.
Trust that your abundance is expansive. You do not need to hold on, but rather, expand by letting go and surrendering. Remember that wealth is a mindset. Expand your energy through the surrender experiment!
