Julie presented this great idea after reading a recent blog about making a Surrender Box.
Divine inspiration was responsible for our box design. It was very important to me that it be representative and mindfully done. So I went to Home Goods and searched for the right box to use- made sure I checked every nook and cranny. Low and behold, one box left in the perfect size with the words "Believe in Yourself" on it! Seriously!
I texted my BFF, Monica, who is an artist and wrote " I've got a fun project for us!" So in her craft room, we collaborated and created the following:
Top of the lid-
- the words " I choose to let go..."
in a pretty, flowing font.
-print it on lined tablet note paper
- burn the edges as we plan to ceremonially burn our "surrenders"
-affix a butterfly as a metaphor for releasing it to God, the universe as well as our "metamorphosis" to inner beauty and spiritual growth.
- affix the word "surrender" to flank the sides of the lid - bolstering and framing our message on top, representing our commitment and fortitude.
- then we put clear coat in it to stick and seal it together for strength and durability .....just like we, as a tribe derive our strength from being cohesive and sealed in our love for each other.
That's what went into making this box. So let's fill it up!
