For Happiness, Peace & Ease Surrender

For Happiness and Ease Surrender! Say YES to Life!

For Happiness, Peace & Ease Surrender“Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”
~Eckhart Tolle

Are you saying “yes” to life or do you find yourself fighting for happiness, peace and ease at every corner?  If you are saying “yes” to life congratulations! Carry on! However, if you find yourself in an internal struggle and you’re ready to find happiness it’s time to SURRENDER and say YES!

Surrender is the intersection between acceptance and change. Many find themselves fighting and in effort as they search for mere nuggets of happiness, peace and ease. Doesn’t it seem odd to resist and fight what “is” to reach a place of ease? Each moment that is resisted translates into a feeling of being at war and the war is not based on outside circumstances. It is wholly based on illusion and internal dialogue.

When we surrender it doesn’t mean giving up or losing. Surrender does not make us a victim of our circumstances. Surrendering means putting down our weapons of resistance, ego and control that takeover the mind.  It means accepting that which IS, letting go and moving forward.

Accepting what “IS” in present time takes our energy out of the battle and frees us. It brings a sense of ease that allows us to say YES to life again. To be sure there will always be something we can go into battle for but when we surrender and let go of the fight we have actually just won the battle! When we are fighting, in resistance or struggling, the greater the chance to get stuck.

Now, I want to make it very clear here that I’m not referring to those who have an illness and doing everything possible to fight for their lives. That is a very different kind of fight. I’m also not referring to those things we must fight for globally like human rights, truth and justice. We all must take a stand up and speak out about injustices.

I’m referring to the  battles which exist in the ego mind that imprison us. I’m talking about those internal negative dialogues which take root and cause us to constantly feel like we are fighting to become visible, worthy and valuable in the outer world.

Keep in mind surrender is not giving up. It’s just the opposite. Happiness and ease comes from being one with our life in the present moment. Being one with our life is accepting what IS then doing something about it. It’s certainly difficult to create something new if you’re stuck and in the middle of fighting a battle!

If you are at war resisting your circumstances you’ll have very little energy left for anything else. Your circumstance (or growth period) is not who you are. It is when you give up trying to fight and control every little thing that comes up that you will feel a sense of ease.

Surrender! Make love not war!!!

“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. the world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.”~ Marianne Williamson

Are you ready to say YES to life? Surrender! Put down your resistance and weapons of war. Let go of the negative internal dialogue and love yourself.The very second you decide to let go and surrender you WIN! Everytime you say YES you choose to make love not war.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Who Else Wants to Make Someone Smile?

CandyCaneHello‘Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”~Leo Buscaglia 

As we journey through life there are times when seemingly insignificant acts become significant life changers.These life changers are not always found in the “big” things we do but the small random acts that brighten the night, cause big smiles and bring joy to our hearts.

I experienced several of these moments last night and wanted to share so you too can be the cause of an ear to ear smile. It might surprise you to know that the cause of these light up the night smiles were caused by a simple candy cane…or maybe it was something else!

On the way to teach my last meditation workshop of the year I decided to stop and pick up some candy canes to give to those attending. Little did I know that what started out as a simple “it might be nice to give out candy canes” thought would turn into smiles, happiness and joy not only for those who attended to the workshop (myself included) but for everyone I came in contact with.

The Joyful HELLO!

Before the workshop I arranged the chairs and set the energy then placed a chocolate mint candy cane on everyone’s chair. A small gesture to be sure but the result was bigger than originally intended. As everyone entered to take their seats they stopped for a moment and looked at the candy cane. A few asked “is this for me?” A few giggled and said “OOOOO a candy cane!” Regardless of anything they ‘said’ ALL of them smiled from ear to ear. The heavy, palpable energy in the room lifted immediately. A little piece of holiday candy turned into a big HELLO to spirit!

After the workshop I had almost a full box of candy canes left over (of course I bought too many. God forbid someone arrived and didn’t get one. I thank my mother’s programming for this.) and since I didn’t trust myself to bring them all home and not eat them in one sitting, I decided to give them to everyone I came in contact with on the way home.

The girls at the Yoga center, the cab driver, my doorman. In my mind it was simply giving away candy BUT it was much more! As I handed them out with a smile, it caused the people to stop the thoughts running through their head, be in the present, get a hello AND then it caused them to light up with a smile. With this small gift they immediately became HAPPY which in turn made me happy! I acknowledged another human being with a smile and a candy cane and didn’t just pass them by lost in my own thoughts.

All too often there is a sense of feeling anonymous or invisible in this world. We all want our presence acknowledged but have gotten so used to being a part of the crowd and lost in our own thoughts we sometimes don’t take the time to acknowledge the presence of those around us.

A “hello” to spirit creates a healing for the person who receives it for it recognizes their presence. What’s interesting is that when someone smiles, you can actually see them coming back to themselves. If you don’t believe me try looking into someone’s eyes, smile and say hello just to see what happens.

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”~Paramahansa Yogananda

So I ask you, was it the chocolate mint candy canes or was it a “hello” that caused people to light up and smile? Whichever it was, I’m going back to the store and buying more of those candy canes to hand out! If you don’t have the means to buy and give out candy canes, get out there give out smiles and hellos. You may brighten a sad heart AND the act of giving brings happiness to your soul.~Shine Your Light Debbie
