How to surrender to the universe

Have you ever felt overwhelmed with life?

We do everything we can to make our lives better and make them stress-free and enjoy our lives. But we always felt it as a never-ending battle. Whatever we do to become successful, it always backfires and brings us into new trouble, and We had to work on that new problem, which continues. Have you felt it before?

Life for me, some time ago, was exactly like a rat race. I just run and run. Of course, I made some progress, but life was always stressful, and I couldn’t enjoy the little things in my life which really matters. I was moving from project to project.

At one point, I understood I was not living. I reacted to all the situations in my life and solved problems when it appears, and the problem never stopped coming. I know what you are thinking; it is how we grow by solving problems. But I was not growing. How I understood this was, even though I had many successes in my life, I was not truly happy. The happiness stayed only a few moments. I couldn’t actually enjoy the things I achieved in my life. That’s when I knew I was doing something wrong. That’s what made me think and reconsider what I was doing and what results in those actions returned.

I will share below some of the lessons I learned during this self-discovery. If you had the same problem I was having, read this completely and apply them to your life. I am sure it will help you to discover your life and find the real meaning of it.

How fear controlled my life


I thought I was in control of my life, but I was wrong. It was my fear which controlled everything. It even controlled ‘my control over my life.

When we fear a possible outcome, we do everything to ensure that fear does not happen in real life. But, unfortunately, this can leads to a lot of other problems far greater than the original problem itself. For example, if you fear that your kid might use drugs, what will you do?

You start controlling your kid, his actions and your concern towards him will make him uncomfortable, and he might feel a lack of freedom, and trust issues can appear. This, in turn, can lead to other levels of problems and so on.

See, This fear alone has created a lot of new problems. One fear is the reason for all the problems between the parent and child.

My life was a huge collection of these fears. If I fear an outcome, I try to change them by controlling everything related to my fear. I thought I was doing the right thing. But it only leads to more and more problems. First, I blamed everyone for this mistake because I thought I was doing the right thing. 

It took some time for me to understand that the primary problem was my fear, and all those people were reacting to the actions I took to control them.

I understood that controlling anyone or anything other than you is the major mistake I made, which backfired and led to all the problems in my life.

That’s when I started to search “ How to surrender to the universe. “

I wanted to learn to surrender my egos, stop controlling people, get myself free from the outcome, and enjoy my life.

What does surrender to the universe really means

First of all, it doesn’t mean you live like a hippie; It doesn’t mean you are being irresponsible to everything and tells the universe will take care of everything. It’s not what I meant by surrender to the universe.

“Surrender to the universe means you do everything you need to do in your life by not controlling anyone or anything other than your body and mind and detach yourself from the outcome with the intention ‘whatever best for me will always happen to me this time and every time.’ ”

Controlling your life: What it can do ?


It is actually logical to believe in controlling your life and every outcome of it. Because we will choose only a good outcome for every problem, we might have. But that’s not what happens most of the time.

As I mentioned before, our fear makes us control our lives, and we now know what it can lead to; another problem.

Apart from that, Control is attached to the outcome we believe is good for us. But do you really think you know what is good for you? 

What you should control and what not

This is the part most people are confused about. If you don’t control anything, you don’t have any hold on your life, no responsibilities, and you might be living like a hippie. You don’t have any goals; that’s not what we want. That mindset will make us lazy, and we will have no growth in our lives, and we will blame everything in the universe because you have surrendered to the universe, and now it’s the universe’s duty to make you successful, right?

That’s not the right way.

It would be best if you had control over your life. In fact, you should control everything in your life. 


The key here is, whatever you do, detach yourself from the outcome.

You do everything you have to do about a problem; maybe it’s some random work, maybe it’s your personal development, controlling your emotions, learning to manage finance better. It could be anything that helps you to grow in your desired field. Do all those things in your life only. Don’t try to control other people. You can educate them but never control them.

But whatever you do, detach yourself from the outcome. The outcome of your work could be anything that best suits your life. Don’t try to control the outcome. The universe knows what best for you and will be provided. For that, you need to surrender to the universe.

Surrendering to the universe: what it can do ?

Surrendering to the universe has two major effects. The first one happens when you stop controlling every outcome. When you do it, all the problems related to controlling will stop appearing. That itself can put a stop to the rat race you have been running for all these years.

Once you achieved this, now you are not running a race you cannot win. That itself put you in a winner’s shoe. Now you are ready to lead in your life. With less stress and more happy moments, you are set yourself for all the good things that can happen to your life. You don’t have any more resistance towards what you actually deserve.

Once you started detaching yourself from the outcome, whatever is best for you is now ready to be yours. The possibility is now not limited to your finite mind, which means miracles are going to happen in your life, and it will never stop surprising you.

What Should I choose: Control or surrender ?


Now you know there is no right answer to this question. If you choose one, it will not solve the real problem, and you will be missing out on the real essence of the universe.

The real answer is, you chose both. Therefore, control everything in your life that can solve your life’s problem and surrender to the universe to give you the best outcome you deserve.

How to surrender to the universe and let go of control

Everybody will be telling you that you need to surrender to the universe, but they don’t mention how to surrender to the universe and let go of the control of the outcome. So let’s tackle that now.

The basic concept of surrendering to the universe

The basics of surrendering to the universe are very simple. First, understand we humans are not everything. It is not us who makes the earth spin, and the knowledge we have is so minute that it cannot even compare with the universe’s knowledge.

We might think we are everything, and we try to control everything around us. The truth this, we can’t even see most of the things around us. Yet, we try to control.

Once you know what you are in the big picture of the universe and get rid of your ego, It is easy to surrender to the universe. At that point, it just happens.

  • Not judge anyone
  • Always detach yourself from the outcome
  • Don’t try to control anything or anyone other than yourself

Whatever you do in your life, always pay attention. You are not doing these things. Once you have reached this stage, the below-mentioned tips can help you surrender to the universe faster, rediscover the real you, reboot your life, and design it for happiness and success.

How to surrender to the flow of the universe


Like everything, the universe also has a flow. Universe has a flow of giving you things, which is not based on what you ask for but based on what you deserve.

How do we know what we deserve?

Every human being born on this earth deserves everything they wish for. It’s only a question of when.

Whatever universe grants you today is based on how energetic you are today. How positive you are today. What your vibrational levels are. How much you control your outcome, your fears and limiting beliefs, and the resistance you have that works against your wish.

So based on all these criteria universe is providing you what you deserve at this moment. So if you improve your emotions and vibration towards a wish and remove the fear and limiting beliefs you have on that wish, Universe will flow with it and start providing you what you deserve at that moment.

The problem happens when you start to attract a wish from the universe you are not ready for. Then, every level of manifestation needs more and more alignment of yourself with the wish you have. The more you are aligned, the more universe provides.

So it is important to know your energy and manifestation level and surrender to the flow of the universe.

The more you recognize this flow of the universe and surrender to it, the easier it will become for you to surrender to the universe and have what you want in your life.

Stop chasing things


Chasing things in your life is the hardcore of controlling the outcome. It is confusing at first. We believe when we chase things, we achieve them. But it’s the opposite. When we stop chasing things, things will start appearing in your life.

Make yourself worthy of it and stop chasing it, it will miraculously get attracted to you, and in some way, it will be yours. Isn’t that more fun?

Know what you have and what you are aligned with and focus on that

What you have right now is proof you are aligned to that. So now you know you can attract more of what you have because you are already aligned. So by detaching yourself from the outcome and focusing on what you have can easily attract more of what you have and anything that requires the same or similar energy.

That itself can transform your life in exciting ways. You now have a working proof of you attracting your reality. This can leads you to positive energy flow and more and more trusting the universe and surrendering to it. This, in turn, leads to more and more complex manifestations. That’s how you grow exponentially and excitingly.

Remove the resistance

Resistance itself is self-explanatory. You might be having some resistance towards your wish or surrendering to the universe. Finding them and removing them is one of the best things you can do to skyrocket your experience.

Look at the fear you have, which is concerned with the problem you are having. Try to remove them. Look at all the limiting beliefs you have. Do you have any painful experiences in the past which block your energy?

Are you confident enough in this life path? Do you have self-doubt?

If you have any of those, address them and get rid of them.

Increase your Self awareness

Self-awareness is the root of spirituality. You should know your beliefs, fear, and most importantly, How you react to each situation in your life. It has a lot of information about your belief system and how aligned you are with the universe.

Not a plan of action, It’s a way of life

The important mistake people make is that they consider it the only way to save from their troubles. So, for example, If you are desperate to come out of your financial mess and surrender to the universe as your main plan, you are flowing a lot of unwanted energies to it.

Instead of it, remove the urgency, even if it’s urgent, and try to enjoy the art. You will get better results this way.

Connect with the universe and your unseen friends

You know you are not alone in this journey. You have a lot of unseen friends who are willing to help you to achieve your desire. All you have to do is ask for help. Meditate and connect with your higher self or guardian angel, talk to them, and ask them to help you. They will surely do.

I hope you found what you are looking for. If you did, many other souls like you would be searching for this same information. So do a favor to them by sharing this article with them. I really do appreciate the help, and they will, too; thank you for it.
