Surrender & Trust

The Connection to Happiness with sunset in the background

In celebration of International Day of Happiness 2022, take some time to reflect on the message below. (excerpt from the book, Magnify Your Magnificence: Your Pathway to the Life & Relationships You Truly Desire channeled through Marisa Ferrera.)

Life is not about getting to any particular destination for once you reach whatever destination you think you want to experience, you will have the desire to reach a new destination.

This is why it is so important to enjoy the journey itself, for this is what makes up your life. For many of you, the destination becomes the focus, and you miss out on all the wonderful experiences you can have along the way. You are not present to the moment-to-moment experiences, because all you can see is the striving to get somewhere and the disappointments and frustrations of not being there yet.

Can’t you see, there is nowhere to go in order for you to experience joy and bliss? You can experience it right now and in every moment if you choose to. This does not mean there is no point in moving toward a desired outcome or a desired destination. What it means is to be present along the way and to take time to enjoy the journey itself and let go of the need to be there now, wherever “there” is.

Do you understand what we are saying? How much of your life have you felt unsatisfied, wishing you had more money or a better job or a better relationship? How long have you been telling yourself that your life would be so much better “if only…”?


No matter what your life looks like today and no matter where you want it to go, you can choose to be grateful for all that “is.” The more grateful you are for what “is,” the more easily you can manifest what you desire. We are not saying you should only be grateful for what you have and not want more. It is wonderful to want more and more for you are a co-creator with the capacity to manifest endlessly. What we are saying is that if you fill your energy field with thoughts and feelings of being unsatisfied, angry, disappointed, frustrated at not being, doing, or having what you want, not only will it be difficult to manifest what you desire but you will experience struggle and challenge along the way.

Think about it this way. If you really enjoy celebrating specific occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, etc. do you get angry every time you think about these occasions and feel frustrated because the celebration is not happening today? Do you make yourself wrong because you have to wait for the celebration to occur? No, you look forward to this occasion and feel excited with anticipation for when the day arrives. Every time you think about this upcoming celebration, you are filled with joy and happiness. The reason for this is because you trust that the day will arrive. You don’t tell yourself things like. “I cant believe the birthday isnt here yet. What am I doing wrong? Maybe I need to work harder so I can manifest the birthday sooner.” Trusting and knowing that the day will arrive allows you to enjoy the days leading up to the celebration. It allows you to prepare for the day with positive and uplifting feelings.

We invite you to trust that ALL you desire is on its way to you and will arrive at the right and perfect time.

Positive Expectancy

As you wait for the day to arrive, prepare for the day with excitement and anticipation knowing it is only a matter of time before you experience the manifestation of your desires. Stay in a positive energy field of knowing and trusting that whatever your heart desires is on its way. If you have trouble believing this, go back to pretending. Imagine how you would feel if you knew deep within you that what you desire most is on its way and the arrival date will be a surprise.

Today, think of one thing that you desire most. Is it a new or better relationship? A better job? More clients for your business? A new house? More money? Take a few moments to imagine what your life will be like when this desire becomes real for you. Put yourself there now in your mind’s eye and feel the happiness, the excitement of living in this reality.

Give thanks knowing that you will receive whatever it is you are asking for, or better. Ask yourself, “How can I prepare for what Im asking for?” Just like you would make preparations in advance for an upcoming birthday party, you can also make preparations for receiving what you ask for. This is what is meant by what others have said, “Act as if what you want is already here.”

What would you do if you knew without doubt that whatever you asked for is on its way to you? If you find it helpful, write down the thoughts that come to you. For example, if you are asking for a better and more fulfilling job, perhaps you might begin telling your friends and acquaintances about the type of job you are looking for and ask them to let you know if they hear about anything. You might attend various networking events. What is important here is that you continue to take steps toward what you desire, knowing that you will have it. Let go of “when” it will happen for, if you focus on this, you will find yourself feeling discouraged and frustrated when “it” doesn’t happen soon enough. You will begin to doubt that it will happen at all and possibly give up.

Do your best to surrender and trust that whatever you desire will come to you and when you find yourself feeling discouraged or doubtful, remind yourself that this is similar to choosing to celebrate a birthday. The only difference is that with the birthday, you know the exact date when the party will manifest whereas, with many of your other desires, the arrival date is unknown. We assure you that the arrival date will come as long as you continue to trust and believe that it will come and continue to walk towards it.
