Phase 9 – Surrender and Healing
Sometime during your purification you encounter a liberating moment or series of moments where you surrender. The phase begins with a situation where the old ways in which you have helped yourself to remain safe and secure no longer work. You are forced to depend upon others in a way you have not previously.
Here you let go of whatever you have been holding onto that is old—whether it be a relationship, friendship pattern, beliefs, or job—one thing is clear—it is outdated. This surrender or series of surrenders opens the door to a period of healing that eventually completes the cleansing that began during the dismemberment phase. Even though you are still muddling in the darkness of your interior, this phase has a lighter quality—it is not so intensive. You have more support and more inner stability. It is important to engage in activities that are healing and nurturing.
