Have you created your Surrender Box?  Not sure how?  Read Use a Surrender Box to Release Your Worries and Burdens for more information about Surrender Boxes and how to create one.

 The next step to using a surrender box is to write down what you want or need to happen and then place the note into your box. By writing and placing your thoughts in the box, you  are taking action and letting Your Divine Council know that you need help and are willing to surrender your feelings, beliefs and worries about the challenge you are facing.  Once you place your note in your surrender box, you are giving yourself permission to not concern yourself with that problem any longer. Trust that Your Diving Council is taking care of it. You may even want to place your box in a special place.  I keep my surrender box on my altar in my home office.  Your surrender box is your sacred container for your worries.  You may even want to place some crystals in the box to help you.  Amethyst is great for dissolving negative feelings and energy.  When you place your worries in the box, not only do you free up space in your mind, but you are also giving your burden over to a higher power.  When you place a note in your Surrender box, make a commitment to yourself that you are going to release the burden for an one hour. When you mind begins to wonder back to the problem, remind yourself that you made a commitment to allow your Spirit Guides, angels and ancestors to handle the problem and provide you with guidance. Allow your mind to focus on other tasks, rest, exercise, or relax.    Once you have completed an hour, try doing a half a day and work your way up to being able to place items in your box without thinking or focusing on them for at least 24 hours.  This takes practice and faith.

Using a Surrender Box doesn’t mean you don’t continue working, or just wait and wait for things to happen. It means that you have faith that your higher guidance will give you guidance and resources – the big solution so that you can move forward.   As the guidance comes, you must take action.  Once you drop your worries and desires into the surrender box, you free your mind so you can be fully present in each moment. Freeing your mind allows you to be more creative and have more energy follow the guidance.

Surrendering your worries and concerns and placing them in the hands of the universe doesn’t mean that you are giving up or have been defeated. Instead, you are releasing the realization of your desires and the resolution of your worries to your higher power and you are no longer concerned with outcomes because you know that the right information and resources you need will come.   When using a surrender box, the information you need to carry on and achieve your desires actually can come in many forms.  Look for Signs and Symbols  (link to last blog post) that may come while you are standing in line somewhere or, you may read it as a headline in a magazine and be triggered to hear and feel the answer. Your Spirit Guides can share with you using many forms of communication.  You might even be on the dance floor and suddenly you get an idea. The key is to be open to any guidance that comes.

It’s always fun to go back and pull the slips of paper out of your 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.
