I've noticed that many of you seem to be interested in the idea of surrender. As i mentioned before, imo there are not really how to instructions to this natural process. Yet here are some summarized tips from Eckhart Tolle's books that can help to unlearn fighting and to remember how to naturally surrender again.
Humility grants the ability to surrender. It releases resistance, judgement, complaint and blame. Humility is the universal solvent of the alchemists.
since this is a period of spiritual acceleration, i suggest using 2 or more methods of surrender. because of greater influx of energy, manifestations are faster for both positive and negative, dark and light, fears and desires.
1) surrender through awareness. practice mindfulness to sharpen your awareness. Eckhart Tolle's techniques will help.

The Presence Process integrate blocked emotions. Once these blocked emotions – energies in motion – are liberated, the consequence is reflected automatically in shifts in our physical, mental, and emotional experience. It uses Consciously Connected Breathing 15min 2/day. The Presence Process, Edition 2 can be downloaded here. This goes well together with releasing techniques.
2) surrender through forgiveness: a) "a course in miracles" and b) "the 12 steps"
3) surrender by releasing. let go of judgement and blame. releasing techniques of Lester Levenson will help.
4) surrender by allowing. get into the the vortex and generate the emotional grid and state of being that you want. allow it to manifest in time to create the reality that you prefer.
Consciously Connected Breathing gets me faster and easier into the vortex.
5) surrender through action. adopt the belief that "beliefs are easy to change". secondly, believe that you are always in the right place at the right time. third, live your excitement.
6) repeat, recycle and rinse.
Abraham's exposition on "Great Awakening & Blending" is excellent. http://files.meetup.com/642170/The%20Great%20Awakening.doc

i define ananda as bliss brought about by divine presence in your self, moment to moment, whatever the situation, whatever you are doing. This glorious presence allows 1) spontaneous and natural miracles and 2) being in the flow, zone or groove. it imbues your actions with creativity, enthusiasm and optimism.
i define sat as sublime being and cit as pristine awareness. ananda then is glorious presence in harmonious action.
This is not really "surrendering" in the way most people think of it then, is it?
This is more like complete honesty. If a "no" arises within you - that is ok, do not resist it as it just adds another resistance...
So not allowing is to be allowed, therefore it is not about surrendering / allowing - but self-acceptance... honesty. Is this accurate to say?
