What is a surrender box? A surrender box is a tool to assist us in letting go of our burdens so that the universe can take care of them.
There are times when our mind is so just too full - our to-do lists, worries, plans, dreams, and hopes all start to fill our heads and we have little room to think. By allowing our worries to occupy space n the forefront of our thoughts, we can actually manifest them into reality by focusing so much attention on them. By writing your worries on a slip of paper, placing that slip of paper in a box and releasing them to the universe we give our head the space to focus on our hopes and dreams. A surrender box allows us to let go of our worries so the universe can take care of them for us. By writing and placing our worries in the box, we are taking action and letting the universe know we need help and are willing to surrender our feelings.
How do you make a Surender box? This is the fun part, maybe you have a special box already you can repurpose. You also might want to find a pretty box, cut a small hope in the top and decorate it. I used a lovely purple, heart shaped box from Voges Chocolates for mine. I then decorated it with some lovely stickers I received from Goddess Provisions. I place it on my desk, where I spend most of time working and pay the bills. I keep a few slips of paper near by and a pen so I can jot down any worries that may pop up into my head. On the full moon I burn everything that is inside the box, doing one final release of my worries to the universe, then scatter the ashes (once they have cooled) over the ground that thank the Universe.
It is amazing how quickly problems go away and dreams come true when we finally let go and allow a higher power.
