Surrender Walk

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, I want to

share a practice with you that

I call the surrender walk.

So a lot of times throughout the day and

the week and the month, I have different

decisions I need to make, decisions that

I don't have a very quick response to.

If I were to measure it out on an Excel

spreadsheet and look at the pros and the

cons, I can think through it logically,

but it's not necessarily deeply aligned

with an intuitive knowing within me.

And a big part of my, you could say

spiritual work, but also mindfulness,

meditation, personal growth work

has been less about trying to figure

out how to understand something more

logically and more connected to what

is the deepest part of me saying

in relationship to this experience?

What is my deepest truth in this moment?

And so that's where the

surrender walk comes in.

I find that in order to get to that deeper

truth of understanding, I have to let go

of a lot of my ideas, at least my logical

ideas of what I should do in this moment

and really drop in and really listen.

That to me is a form of surrender.

Surrendering a certain kind

of control and surrendering a

certain kind of way of relating.

And I particularly like to

do that while I'm walking.

There's something about being outside,

especially in nature, the spaciousness

of it outside of my apartment,

that's really settling to my system.

I let myself walk as fast

or as slowly as I like.

And I really try and get my body

into a very relaxed state, one

step at a time walking forward.

And I'll just drop a

question into my awareness.

The question is some sort of

decision that I might be navigating.

Should I do this?

Should I spend time with this person?

Should I take on this opportunity or not?

Should I have this conversation?

Drop it in and then I just listen.

And the whole idea is I am surrendering.

I don't actually know the answer

to this on a logical level.

And I am opening myself to

whatever form of intuition and

guidance wants to come through.

And this might not be something

that works for you, but I wanted to

share it because I've been getting a

lot of enjoyment from this process.

And a lot of wisdom tends to

arise when I'm doing this.

In the same way that I often have my

best ideas when I'm going for a walk,

I often have my deepest intuitions when

I'm going for a walk and I allow myself

to just be held by something bigger.

And I think that's why I like this

as a walk or something to do outside

is, there's a felt sense of the

earth around me, the spaciousness of

nature, the spaciousness of the sky.

There is this feeling of I'm stepping

outside of myself and I'm, I'm

welcoming something beyond myself.

And again, your orientation to this

and the language you want to use to

describe it is, is personal to you.

This is what's working for me right now.

And if you are interested in exploring

it, I would just take some time to go

for a walk or sit outside or be outside

or it could be indoors, maybe find a

spacious place inside and just drop a

question that you're navigating into

your awareness and see what arises.

I'm letting go.

I'm open to something moving through me.

What should I do in this situation?

And then start to develop a

relationship with that pulse of

truth that's moving through you.

When we can align ourselves more with that

than just simply the rational ideas moving

through our mind, or at least combine it

with our rational way of thinking, it's

a way for us to make decisions that feel

deeply connected to the depth of who we

are rather than just cognitive exercises.

So something to think about

on your mindfulness journey.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
