Surrender Box- My Zen Spiritual Practice

Many years ago I came across the concept of creating a “Surrender Box“. I don’t recall where I heard of this spiritual practice, but it has become a staple in my life journey. A dear friend gave me a lovely Lucite frame box for my Birthday in 2010. I put it on my coffee table and inserted one of my favorite pictures, a memory from a visit to the Tulip Festival in Oregon. Eventually it became my “Surrender Box”: Worries to the Universe. I only inserted notes when it was a point in my life where I needed to ask the Universe for help. It was an action I took as a way to surrender my worries, close the cover, breathe and trust that all would be well. 

My “Surrender Box”: Worries to the Universe with a Apophyllite Crystal on the top. This crystal infuses you with spiritual light. Very high vibration energy, creates spiritual growth & awakening, heals stress.  

Over the past 8 years I have written many notes, and some years more than others. Once a year I will look inside the box and read the notes. It is interesting how many are with similar requests to the Universe. I only utilize this Zen Spiritual Practice when I am confronted with something that I can no longer control or cannot see a positive outcome. I try to write the notes as Affirmations, so I keep my focus on the positive outcome that I trust the Universe will provide for me. 

About four years ago I wrote a piano song entitled: “Tell The Universe“, I will include the lyrics and link to listen below. I highly recommend this Zen Spiritual Practice for anyone who is confronted with worries and fears along their life path. This is a powerful ritual and in my experience it has been comforting and given me hope during the darkest hours of my life. I believe we are never alone, when we ask for help, we will always be comforted by the Universe.

Tell the Universe
All your worries
And your fears
Surrender your fears
Worries and Fears
Worries and Fears
Surrender your fears
Darling I suffer too
I love you so
Tell the Universe
All your hopes
and your dreams
Surrender control
Let it all flow
Let it all flow
Surrender control
Darling I’m here for you
I love you so
Darling I love you so
