Releasing Worries

Today’s message from the angels comes via Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy oracle card deck and is about releasing worries. “God Box” Write any worries, concerns or desires on a piece of paper that you put into a special container called a ‘God Box’ (or whatever you want to call it, perhaps an Angel Jar) as a way of letting go and allowing the Divine to help you.

Releasing worries with a God Box

As always, this is a perfect card for today as the energies of the full moon eclipse last night may have left many of us feeling a bit out of kilter, even frustrated or confused. Eclipses can act like a reset button, helping us get back on our path, so on the day after an eclipse, we can feel a bit off or lost. Writing out our concerns, worries or frustrations can help us gain clarity about how we’re feeling, as well as give us the opportunity to release them by surrendering any need to control things or fix anything. Feel the feelings – without judgement – and allow the Universe to help you with a solution. Trust that the Universe has your back.

Write yourself a prescription for releasing worries

Writing down our concerns or even prayer requests gives us something physical and practical to do as a way of surrendering and releasing worries. This gives us a tangible process to be able to hand it over to the angels. Write from your heart. Be sincere and honest about your feelings. Notice what you’re feeling (without judgement), name it (to claim it and reduce its power over you), and feel it (give it permission to be there or to leave). Don’t try to force it to leave – you can’t will it to go. Don’t try to fix anything. You can’t find a solution when you’re stuck in the same energy that created the problem.

According to Doreen, God Boxes (these are her words, don’t get stuck on the name – name them whatever you like) are time-honoured tools for gaining peace of mind and answers to your prayers. If you don’t already have a container specifically to be used for this purpose, now is the time to find one – buy, make or adapt one. Choose an ornate container that evokes a sense of mystic or majesty, such as a royal purple box or one decorated with crystals that speak to you. You can have fun rummaging through a secondhand shop to find that perfect unique and interesting glass or china jar (it doesn’t have to be an actual box). Ask your angels to guide you to a wonderful God/Angel Box then follow their guidance to find or make the container that is right for you. Place your box/jar in a place where you can easily see it and have access to it.

The purpose of this exercise is to write down your worries on a piece of paper and symbolically ‘give’ it to the angels or the Universe; symbolically releasing your worries. Alternatively, instead of putting your piece of paper in a God / Angel Box, you can burn it (safely) which releases sit to the Universe, bury it which helps with emotional healing or even put it in the freezer which stops the situation from progressing.
