The Power of Surrender
A few weeks ago, Sheri called me in tears. She explained to me her teenage daughter, Amanda, was soon to be hospitalized for a serious eating disorder. Amanda had lost weight quickly and was dangerously thin.
Needless to say, Sheri’s concern was impacting her work. Each day when she arrived at her work, she intentionally knew she needed to shift her energy and focus to make it through the day. She would write down how she was feeling on a piece of paper, crumple up the paper and throw it away. This helped her to separate her worries about her daughter from being able to do her work. One day when she arrived at work, instead of writing her feelings down, she felt guided to write a letter to God. In it she wrote she understood it was God’s job to worry and steer Amanda in the right direction. She asked God to help Sheri be a good example of love and get out of the way. She surrendered trying to control the situation and placed it squarely in the hands of the Divine.
Later that day was when she first called me. She confided in me that she had lost hope she could get her daughter into the hospital in time because there weren’t any available openings in any of the eating disorder facilities.
She asked me to work with her daughter. With Sheri’s request and permission, I immediately went to work with the Angels, helping to clear stuck energy contributing to Amanda’s situation. After the session, I called Sheri to share with her what I discovered. Less than 5 minutes after I hung up the phone with her, Sheri called me back to tell me that one of the clinics had left a voice mail message for her while we were talking. The message said they could get Amanda into inpatient care the next day. When energy shifts around a circumstance or situation, new possibilities become available.
The next day Sheri and I talked again. She reported feeling a calmness she hadn’t had before. Once again she felt hopeful. She found herself being less reactive. Sheri said Amanda awoke in a good mood and had a dream where she was in college. This indicated to Amanda, she said, that things were going to work out all right. Once Amanda was in the hospital, several nurses commented to Sheri how Amanda was in a good mental and emotional space for her treatment. She was open and non-combative.
