God, it's now in your box - God Boxes and Surrender Boxes

In 2004 I learned of a wonderful tool. It is also a sacred object. And a sacred space. And it is called a god box. It's a box that you create, can cover or design however you wish, and it is a place where you can put all of your worries, concerns and overwhelms and turn them over to the universe. After spending a disappointingly dysfunctional weekend with my sister and really getting hurt again, I am going to spend an hour or so this afternoon creating a Surrender Box and performing a little ritual today using this wonderful tool. A shoe box works quite well for this and can easily be painted or covered with beautiful pictures or verses. I am going to find one for myself today and place a little slip-window on top where I can easily let my concerns and worries go. Turn them over. And see what happens.

 

 

 

Here are a few examples of various god boxes, or Surrender boxes as they may also be called, and the article that inspired me to create one of these lovely boxes for myself again today. May peace and joy abide.

 

 

 

 

Surrender Box
A Place for Worries and Fears

 

A surrender box is a tool to let go of our burdens so the universe can take care of them for us.



There are times when our minds become too full. Our to-do lists, worries, plans, and dreams may be so crowded together in our heads that we don’t have room to think. We may believe that we are somehow taking care of our desires and concerns by keeping them at the forefront of our minds. In maintaining our mental hold on every detail, however, we may actually delay the realization of our dreams and the resolution of our worries because we won’t let them go. At times such as these, we may want to use a surrender box.

A surrender box allows us to let go of our worries and desires so the universe can take care of them for us. We write down what we want or need to happen and then place the note into a box. By writing and placing our thoughts in the box, we are taking action and letting the universe know we need help and are willing to surrender our feelings. We give ourselves permission to not concern ourselves with that problem any longer and trust that the universe is taking care of it. You may even want to decorate your box and place it in a special place. Your surrender box is a sacred container for your worries. Not only do you free up space in your mind by letting go of our worries and desires and dropping them into your surrender box, but you are giving your burden over to a higher power. Once we drop our worries and desires into the surrender box, we free our minds so we can be fully present in each moment.

Surrendering our worries and concerns and placing them in the hands of the universe doesn’t mean that we’ve given up or have been defeated. Instead, we are releasing the realization of our desires and the resolution of our worries and no longer concerning ourselves with their outcomes. It’s always fun to go back and pull the slips of paper out of the box once your requests have been granted. And it’s amazing how quickly problems go away and dreams come true when we finally let go and allow a higher power to help us.
