Surrender Podcast Series - Letting go

Letting go of pictures and surrendering to peace

With Poppy Jamie

Welcome to another episode of the Soul Surgery podcast and our Surrender series where I dive deeply into my guests’ greatest points of surrender.

This week I am joined by the lovely Poppy Jamie. Poppy is one of Forbes’ 30 under 30, UN Global Goals advocate, British wellness entrepreneur, TV host and author of the book ‘Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Change Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety’. She is the founder of the award winning Happy Not Perfect mindset app and host of the Not Perfect podcast.

Poppy’s mission is to empower people to look after their minds and health.

In this episode Poppy talks about how her inability to surrender and the longing to hold on and control so many aspects of her life caused her to have a physical and mental breakdown. Poppy shares with us how she thought that to surrender meant to give up but realised it is in fact the opposite.

In this conversation Poppy tells her story of becoming addicted to working and the drive behind the need to work. Poppy thought that working was the solution to her problems and that by working hard she would get what she wanted. It was only once she was able to surrender and let go of the ideals in her mind that she entered a state of bliss.

If you too feel ready to re-create your relationships or your life by breaking free of old patterns on a holistic level, across mind, body and soul, I invite you to order my book SURRENDER.

SURRENDER will walk you through a life changing process of maturation. Of breaking free of the vicious cycle of repeated stuck patterns, stories and belief systems, trauma and ancestral wounds.

It’s more than just a book. It’s a guide through a deep healing journey of SURRENDERING of who you are NOT so that you can unfurl into who you were BORN TO BE.

Order SURRENDER here:


  • We are programmed from an early age to believe the more we achieve and push ourselves and the more control we have, will result in us ‘doing better’ or ‘getting more’ but ultimately, it just creates more suffering in our lives.
  • We can never have enough of what we never really wanted. The things we strive for, like working hard, will never give us what we really want which is why it will never be enough.
  • We get born into a world that doesn’t educate us in self-trust and self-acceptance, instead we are taught that we need to keep on bettering ourselves.
  • When we are holding on so tightly to the pictures of what it is we think we want, it can block us from seeing other possibilities.
  • We have to experience some pain to realise that what we’ve been doing isn’t going to give us what we want.
  • What’s meant for you will never pass you by.
