A Place For Worries .... Surrender Box

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.

A prostitute is walking through the park and sees a kohala bear sitting on a bench, she sits beside the bear and before long, they are doing all kinds of things right there on the bench!

When they finish, the bear begins to walk away and the prostitute says, “Hey, where are you going?”

The bear just looks at her.

She walks over to the bear and says “I’m serious buddy, for all we just did there, you owe me $50.”

The bear just looks at her.

She says “Look pal, I’m a prostitute and you owe me $50.”

The bear gets a dumb look on his face. She reaches into her purse and pulls out a dictionary, opens it to prostitutes and reads to the bear “… Prostitute, one who charges for sex, and I’m charging you $50.”

The bear grabs the dictionary and opens it to kohala bear and reads “Kohala Bear… one who eats bushes and leaves.”
