Publisher's Summary

From one of the boldest voices in the world of personal growth and motivation, a guide to moving past inner struggle to discover the power of relinquishing control.

Too often we limit our lives by putting conditions on them. We think things should go a certain way, and when they don't, we hold on to what isn't working, reinforcing what is causing us pain and affirming our lack of trust in the universe. There is another way: We can harness the power of relinquishing control and discover more purpose and meaning in our lives. 

After the passing of Kute Blackson's mother in 2017, he discovered that the powerful lesson his mother had been modeling her whole life had always been at the heart of his own teachings - he just hadn't realized it. What was that keen insight? Surrender isn't passive. It isn't giving up. It's strong and courageous. It's about tapping in. In this inspiring book, Blackson traces how surrender was a key factor in the lives of so many great people throughout history, and shows listeners how they can move past self-imposed barriers in their lives to discover the freedom and possibility on the other side of surrender.

Critic Reviews

The Magic of Surrender is powerful book to help you navigate the challenging time we are in. This book will guide you beyond what you thought possible for your life, help you access you own greatness and fulfill your destiny. Kute Blackson is a leader for the new generation.” (Jack Canfield coauthor of The Success Principles and the number-one New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul™ series)

“Kute’s book, Magic of Surrender, is a much needed powerful resource filled with emotional and spiritual tools for discovering freedom and peace within ones self. A resource for navigating through a world where our trust gets broken and we can become easily lost in indecision and fear and feel as if we don’t have control. So many lose sight on their path and journey and struggle with their purpose. This is a life changing guide about the importance of surrendering, facing our truth, and finding our true calling and purpose.” (Anthony William number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Medical Medium book series)

"At a time when so many of us are struggling to find solutions to personal and global problems, Kute Blackson teaches us how to solve those problems - without struggling. When Blackson tells us surrender ushers us into magic, he’s not parroting New Age slogans; his advice rings with authenticity, wisdom, and truth. The Magic of Surrender is a brilliant guide and companion that takes us not only past our difficulties, but straight into a benevolent mystery. Read it as a treat for your soul." (Martha Beck, New York Times best-selling author of Finding Your Own North Star)

More please

I thought the book was inspirational and convinced me to do so BUT still find it difficult!!! I am so wanting what I want and then I don’t know if it’s the inner voice that is guiding me or is it just my conditioning or ego drive???! How do I even begin to know the difference! I don’t hear that inner guidance... It would be nice if the book can go into more detail as to the HOW????!! It seem like the great masters or gurus or long time teachers can surrender so easy pleasy but how about the normal peeps who are still not knowing what that inner voice even sound like??!! Because right now my inner voice wants to go to Hawaii, maybe have a margarita, eat fried chicken, and veg out!! It doesn’t seem to tel me much more besides I am tire, I am thirsty, I am bored, I feel like distracting myself with a call to my amiga.. That’s about it.. I hope this is that surrender to that inner voice you are talking about because I have no problems surrendering to that. How??? Do I even start to hear this voice??? I done a lot of inner work BTW and right now I don’t know if I should buy a house, not buy a house. I sooo want a house but it like events are so not falling into place for me to do so?? So the voice that says buy a house is lying and teasing me??? If I was Kute Blackson, I would know.. Or maybe the Dali Lama. I am still trying to figure out whether I need to turn left from right and will only turn right if I see that pretty house. If not I will be sitting at that fork forever.. I hear no voice??!!!? How??!!

I am everything

The learning in this book has been such a great inspiration. Opening my eyes that I am a complete being as I am and that all I need to do is surrender to the present. Made some notes and actually look forward to listening to it again

Overall Worth the Listen

I enjoyed this for the most part. The basic premise is sound and one the world needs today. I did find the author’s repeated references to his own life a bit wearing after a few hours and would have liked to see the principles either set forth in a general manner or as they applied in the lives of others. It all started to feel a bit too much egocentric to me but still a very good listen that I would highly recommend. I’m not familiar with this author but loved the premise and that’s why I purchased it. No regrets.

Thank you, Kute. You always remind me that I am perfect just the way that I am and my gifts are waiting to be given to the world as soon as I get out of my own way.
