Master the Art of Letting Go with My Secret Surrender Box Technique

Intuition is Connected to Universal Wisdom
As human beings, we are wired for wisdom and guidance from Universal Wisdom (God, our Higher Power, All-That-Is, Eternal Loving Presence) This Wisdom is the force behind the tulips growing in the Spring, the leaves falling from the trees in the Autumn, the beautiful sunsets and sunrises and the brilliant creation of our bodies. It seemed to me that if I could tune in and surrender to that Wisdom, all would be well.


When we learn how to listen to our intuition we will hear this Wisdom. It will show us the next step to take. We don’t have to be concerned with all the minutiae about how to reach our goals and visions. We only need to be concerned about listening for the next steps.


What Does Letting Go Actually Mean?
You have probably read the words, “let go and let God” many times. And you’ve probably asked yourself, what is this surrender stuff all about? Does it mean that you have no role or any responsibility for action in this process? Letting it go to God always sounded so passive to me. It used to scare me more than help me. I thought of it as giving up on what I wanted. But it’s not that at all.


To trust in God is to believe that there is a friendly, abundant, loving, wise energy in the Universe that supports you and wants what’s best for you. It guides you to your highest good. When you let your fears, concerns, wishes, prayers “go to God,” it means that you trust and work with this energy that powers the universe. The Universe will work with you through your own built-in guidance system to help draw to you your greatest good.


I don’t know about you, but I’m most comfortable when I’m taking action. It provides me with an illusion of control! The concept of seeming to do nothing except “let go to God” has been a tough one to get my head around! Here’s the technique I use when I’ve been struggling with an issue with no results. I call it the…


Surrender Box
Write out your worry or concern on a piece of paper. Here’s an example: “Dear Universe – I’m struggling with not having enough money right now. I’m worried that I can’t pay my rent next month. I believe that you want me, and each one of us, to be prosperous, safe and successful. I am surrendering this concern to you and ask for divine guidance to bring about a positive result.”


Summarize your concern with a statement. “Please guide me to prosperity and abundance.”


Close your eyes and go to a place of peace inside you. Take a few slow deep breaths until you feel your energy begin to shift. Imagine that this Eternal Loving Presence is with you and wants to help. Feel yourself being filled and surrounded by incredible love, light and wisdom.


Repeat the concern that you’ve written on the card. Make your statement/request. Listen for any words, feelings, images or sudden insights. Maintain a respectful silence, allowing any wisdom to come into your consciousness. Sometimes a new option will emerge out of the quiet. When you feel ready, imagine placing this concern in a bubble of light. See it being released into the universe. Know that you will receive further information to help you resolve this issue. It may not come to you during the time of your meditation.


Place your piece of paper in a box and place it on a shelf where you will see it frequently I have my box decorated with the words “Surrender” on it. When you find yourself beginning to worry about this issue at any point in the day or night, remind yourself that you have let go of this concern and that you will receive guidance to resolve the problem.


As you listen for guidance on a daily basis you’ll find yourself being given one step at a time. The answer may come through an inspired idea, a dream, a fleeting insight for new directions. When you consistently look within, asking “What is the right course of action?” or “What path should I take?” you will be rewarded with wise divine guidance. It will always be there gracing your steps through life. You will find that your fear begins to drop away and you’ll move forward with confidence in all your endeavors.


Go with what your inner guidance directs you to do. Sometimes this takes faith and courage. Begin with small steps. As you continue to trust this insight, you will come to understand that your life is on purpose and your mission is unfolding. There truly is Invisible Intelligence leading and guiding you to a more peaceful and harmonious life.
