The Ultimate Daily Planner

by Raymond David Salas

As I continue working with the
power of surrender, I have discovered a powerful tool that has helped me tremendously during my 30-day surrender experiment. I call it the “Ultimate Daily Planner.”


Let the Universe manage it.

I have always been a big list maker. I write down all of my work, projects, and thoughts for the day. I usually make my lists on the back of my “page-a-day” calendar pages. Nothing fancy here. No comprehensive time management planning system for me. Yet, I have managed companies using these so-called “archaic” methods.

Here is the madness to my method …ahem:

  • I begin by writing “Things I Would Like The Universe to Manage and Take Care of” at the top of a blank piece of paper. A variation of this might be “God, I surrender to You now all of the following. Take care of all of this for me now.”

  • Next, I list all of the pressing things on my mind and in my thoughts in that moment, including goals, desires, and intentions; tasks, “to-do” items, work, and other projects; health, relationships, and finances; fears, doubts, worries, and other challenges.

The key for me is to not hold anything back. I just let it all out. As I do this, I notice that my energy shifts. I feel lighter and freer as I completely empty out my mind in this way. If you have ever kept a journal or diary, you can probably relate to this feeling.


Letting go.

After completing my list, I let it go. I let the Universe, my Inner Being and Higher Power, manage it from this point on. I make the commitment to only take action if it is inspired and feels good. If it doesn’t, I do nothing. I know this may sound very unrealistic or even crazy to some, but it works!

One of the benefits with this “Ultimate Daily Planner” is that I don’t need to tell the Universe more than once. The Universe hears me and gets it the first time, every time. 


Listen to my inner voice.

Next, I try to relax and allow my Inner Being to guide me, step by step, by listening to Its voice within me. Admittedly, sometimes my inner voice can get crossed up with the voice of my ego, which can be stronger and louder. Regardless, I still try to only listen to my Inner Being. Its voice may be softer, but it will always be the one whose guidance will resonate with peace and joy. I have found that the more you learn to listen to It and distinguish Its tone, the clearer this inner voice becomes.

Also, I pay attention and notice any synchronicities, chance encounters, and coincidences. I attempt to follow wherever they might lead me, even if it’s not logical or rational. I trust (I know, a scary word) my “emotional guidance system” and attempt to do whatever feels best. If this is ever too difficult, I start by being willing to trust first and grow from there.


The Ultimate Daily Planner

I have discovered this “Ultimate Daily Planner” to be a daily planner like no other. It is a “to do” list for the Universe filled with requests and items to be acted on by the Universal Manager. With it, I am consciously co-creating my own reality (with the Source Energy) through my intentions and choices here, instead of trying to make something happen. With the “Ultimate Daily Planner,” I always get to choose what to create and the Universe takes care of the rest of the details. How sweet is that?

Working with this system (which I believe is the essence of the way the entire Universe works); I realize that I do not need to ever look for love, joy, prosperity, abundance, success, and freedom. It’s all available to me right now, as much as I can handle. I simply need to allow it all into my life experience, removing the barriers in my awareness to their presence in my life. The “Ultimate Daily Planner” helps me to accomplish this and it will work for everyone else who applies it. The Universe is an E.O.E. (Equal Opportunity Energy).

I feel that we were never meant to micro-manage the details of our lives. I believe that we are not wired for it, which is why so many people get stressed out trying to manage their daily lives.

After choosing what to create next in our lives, our only job is to get out of the way and allow it to unfold and manifest in our experience, in its own time and way. The “Ultimate Daily Planner” gets us out of the Universe’s way to experience the success, joy, and fulfillment we truly desire in all areas of our lives.


Bring on the miracles!

As I allow the power of surrender to go to work for me through the use of the “Ultimate Daily Planner” and other power tools, I continue to be amazed at the daily miracles flowing into my life and the manifestations occurring in this never-ending, wonderful adventure I am creating now.
