How to Discover Your Destiny

Are you ready to discover your true destiny?

Are you ready to discover your greatest joy? Your greatest passion?

If so, let me reveal my discovery…

After hearing Story Waters’ challenge for changing your life in 30 days, I decided to put it to the test. Today I have completed day number 30 of my experiment.

Here is what the experiment consisted of:

Complete and total surrender. Accept and allow everything. Let everything go. Stop trying to change the reality I’m in or create in any way (yes, this includes visualizations, affirmations, etc.). Say “yes” to everything.

What is the reason behind all of this?

By completely surrendering to the now and allowing it to be, I automatically align with my Higher Self and step into my natural flow of wellbeing where my needs and true desires are fulfilled easily. Of course, the “other side of the coin” is that everything that I have been resisting (including fears, worries, etc.) will come out too. Plus as an added “bonus,” everything that I have been artificially sustaining in my life (meaning all that has already served its purpose for me) will often leave, fall apart, or start to come undone, sometimes in dramatic fashion.

In other words, things can get really sh…“messy” (at least temporarily).

O.K….so why do it?

For me, I feel like the various situations in my life have been leading up to this experiment. 

Things had been going really well for me. During this time (and for all of the previous year), I had been visualizing daily and reviewing my intentions regularly. Things really seemed to be flowing nicely, with amazing experiences happening often. All was well.

Then, earlier this year, the tide seemed to turn. Things began to change, sometimes suddenly and seemingly “out of the blue.” WTF?

However, I knew that I was still very disciplined (a nice way of saying “stubborn”), so I just intensified my focus of what I wanted and took actions accordingly, but things continued to deteriorate or change rapidly in the opposite direction of my desired outcome.

As a result, I began to question everything because I kept feeling like I was trying to swim upstream against a rip current. I was growing tired mentally and emotionally, until I got to the point where I just let go of everything and decided to go with the flow.

“Whatever happens, happens” was my attitude.

The 30 Day Total Surrender Experiment

So what happened?

Did my work, daily life, and/or personal life change positively, stay the same, or completely fall apart?

Actually, a little of each happened in all areas.

Here are some of the highlights from my 30 day total surrender experiment:
  • Signs, synchronicities, and coincidences occurred regularly.
I began attracting all types of signs, synchronicities, and coincidences into my life.

During this past month, I came across books by authors like Robert Scheinfeld and Joe Vitale who seemed to be saying all of the things I was feeling inside. For example, in Joe’s book Zero Limits, he reveals how he personally went from consciously creating his life and success (as explained in The Secret and his best-selling book The Attractor Factor) to letting all of that go and surrendering to the Divine.

“You have choice, but you don’t have control. You can use your conscious mind to begin to choose what you would prefer to experience, but you have to let go of whether you manifest it or not, or how, or when. Surrender is key. When you let go of your ego and the ego’s desires, you allow something better to guide you: the Divine.” – Joe Vitale

  • Work success increased.
During my surrender experiment, my work success increased on all fronts. My Energy Healing work experienced its greatest volume of clients, miracles, feedback, and results, including being invited to work with a new group of clients in beautiful San Diego, California. It was truly a wonderful experience from beginning to end. In addition, this past week, I completed final arrangements to meet and work with an even larger group of clients located in Washington, DC. All of the details for both events came together easily after I got out of the way, let go and surrendered it all.

  • Relationships changed.
There seemed to be a great amount of change in my personal relationships as the experiment continued. Many people in my life shifted around. Some people grew much closer. Others went in a totally different direction or disappeared altogether (hello, where are you?). I connected with some who I had not been in contact for a while (welcome back!). I also made some new friends.

  • Increased energy.
One of the things I definitely felt was a higher level of energy. I have been requiring less and less sleep each night, yet feeling better and better each day. Nice!

  • Every day feels like my birthday!
Another interesting phenomenon has developed during this experiment. People have been extra friendly, nice, attentive, and helpful everywhere I go. It’s starting to feel like every day is my birthday. How cool is that?

How to Discover Your Destiny

Before discussing how to discover your destiny, I should answer the question “What is destiny?”

My definition of “destiny” is that it is the blueprint (within you) of your greatest joy, including all of your gifts, talents, natural abilities, and all that you truly love and feel passionate about.

How do you discover your destiny?

The most powerful way that I have found is through complete and total surrender to your Higher Self, the Divinity within you.

How do you completely surrender to your Higher Self?

As I shared in The Power of Great Teachers, one of the easiest ways is to practice the following suggestions from Sonia Choquette:

- After awakening every morning, begin your day by saying:

“Subconscious Mind, let my Higher Self and only my Higher Self, lead me this day.”

- From here, do whatever feels good, whatever you feel energized, motivated, or inspired to do.

- During your day, if you ever feel anxious, upset, insecure, angry, hurt, confused, vengeful, insignificant, or your peace is disturbed in any other way, take a deep breath and release it (and any tension or resistance you have), then say:

“Subconscious Mind, take me now and always to my Higher Self.”

The Keys to Discovering Your Destiny

After completing my surrender experiment, I feel that the keys to discovering your destiny include:
  • Being nonattached
  • Staying present
  • Releasing the past (including your “story” of it and who you think you are)
  • Staying open to all possibilities, including miracles (maintain the “anything can happen” mentality)

“You begin to realize that when you surrender to a greater power (within you), miracles tend to happen. You begin to let go, and trust. You begin to practice, moment by moment, awareness of your connection with the Divine. You realize the greatest thing you can do is agree to each moment. You live, in general, in a constant state of amazement, wonder, and gratitude.” – Joe Vitale

Here’s to another 30 days of complete and total surrender! Are you with me?
