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.
