Have you ever wondered what a “God Box” is? If you hang around in my circles long enough, you’ll eventually hear me talk about mine.
I first learnt of a God Box at Unity Church. The concept of a God Box really fascinated me when I first heard about it. I wanted to get one, or make one for myself right away!
Why?! Well, let me explain.
The premise behind the God Box is simple. Those things we cannot control are concerned or worried about, have a “place” to go --- literally. It starts by recognizing that which is in our life that’s occupying too much heart and head space. You know what they are; we all have them …
large bills we see no way of paying, illness, outcomes we desire, yet see no clear way of making happen ourselves, even the weather, say for instance, on a day where there’s a special outdoor event planned well in advance
Simply write out your desire on a slip of paper and place it in your God Box. That’s it!
Well, not quite! Your job is to let it go. And, we all know that’s not the easiest, as most of us have been trained to worry, fret and believe we can control things. So, the trick is to really set your intention to trust God (Universe, Spirit, Source) for the outcome. And, let it go…
If you find yourself worrying again about that “thing” you desire, you are to take the piece of paper out of the box and carry it in your hand all day until you’re really ready to release it ---- ahhh, now that’s hard! But, that’s the idea … release your concern, worry, and control, or carry the “burden” yourself.
It’s a choice, right?
I’ve had so much success with my God Box, my kids tell me to put their worries and concerns in there, too! They understand the power it holds on some level. The real power is in the letting go, of course!
a few examples of mine include getting paid a large sum of money owed me by someone who didn’t want to pay-up; the perfect house to live in at a time when the home I was in was being sold from underneath my feet, and free website design
When we let go, we make room for God (Universe, Spirit, ,Source) to do its work; we get out of the way, so to speak … and that’s when the miracles and magic happen.
Our part is to trust. Trusting something bigger than us can handle the stuff that’s seemingly out of our control, and in this we feel a great sense of release … our energetic hose gets un-kinked! Now, the real work can get done.
Mind you, this is not to say, if there are “steps” you can take with respect to your concern, worry, or desire that you don’t take them. We have a big our part in what happens in our lives. And, by all means, do (and be) what you can. But, when the rubber meets the road and there’s nothing left for you to do, then trust and let it go.
I’d love to hear your feedback on your “God Box” experiences! I have two God Boxes. One for small slips of paper with concerns, worries, and desires, and a larger one that holds bills, etc. The larger box was recently obtained … a gift from one of my daughters (in fact, the other smaller one was bought by the other daughter!), and it’s already proven trustworthy. Of course it has!
God has my back, and I’m watching evidence of this over and over again by letting go and letting God.
