Creating a worry box and ease anxiety and fear. Fear and worry can both be forms of prayer, but, not the type of prayer you want to draw your energy too. Sometimes we can get caught in the spiral of fear and before we know it our fear encompasses many aspects of our lives. That is why I like to have several tools to deal with fear and creating a worry box is one of my favorites.

Normally, I try to nip fear in the bud. I have had many hurdles the past several years and it has taught me to overcome and deal with fear. If we do not deal with it, we are imprinting the fear on our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind does not judge and obeys whatever we tell it.

If we are concentrating on thoughts of worry or fear that is exactly what we are putting in our subconscious mind. Consider the analogy of a garden, instead of growing flowers, you are planting weeds. It has been written that fear is man’s greatest enemy. However, the good news is that you can control and overcome it.

The past several months, I have had many challenges. It seemed that whatever I put into motion just stopped dead in its’ tracks. Lots of hard work produced nothing. It was a very frustrating time, like, I was running in place and getting nowhere. This is when worry and fear starting trying to take over. But, I was determined to deal with it and move on. The worry box is one of the tools I used.

Steps to Create Your Worry Box.

1. Find a box you want to use. You probably already have one in your home. It could be a decorative box that is empty. Empty boxes are stagnant energy, put that box to use. Or you can use any small cardboard box and decorate it. Have some fun and let those creative juices flow.
2. Next, light a candle or some incense and say a prayer for guidance and strength. Write down your worries. I remember years ago having worry dolls. I would tell each one of them my problems and then put them in a small pouch. This is a very similar activity.
3. Cut out each “worry” and place it in your box. As you place each one, ask God to surround each of your worries with his Divine Love and Wisdom to help you work through them. Say a prayer of Gratitude that God has heard and will answer your prayers. Have trust and faith in God.
4. Close the box and leave the worries there. When you think about them or fear begins to set in, declare that God, the Universal Intelligence, is working on each and every one is perfect timing and in a perfect way.

Build Fearless Faith

Luckily, my family and I were spared the worst of Hurricane Irma’s wrath. We lost some beautiful trees and had to endure 90-degree heat without electricity for days, but, in perspective, that is all minor. However, in talking to people this week and feeling the energy while in public, there is an emotional aftermath of Hurricane Irma and this could be the perfect time to build fearless faith.

With the storm approaching, it is hard to predict where landfall and the terrible “eye” of the storm will hit. We prepare our homes, we put up shutters and then when the storm starts, we lose electricity and sit by lantern light. For Hurricane Irma is was a long night of sitting in the dark because it was such a huge storm.

With the emotional aftermath of Hurricane Irma, I feel it is important to not let fear set into our consciousness or worse our subconscious mind. Now is the time to develop fearless faith in God, Infinite Intelligence. We may have fearless faith when life is going according to what we want and need. But, then the forces of nature come in: hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes or a health concern.

We must develop a fearless faith and surrender to a Higher Power, or we will be at the mercy of the forces of nature, which are beyond our control and remain unpredictable. We must get in touch with our Inner Self and that Inner Self will connect us to a Higher Power, Infinite Intelligence. Times like these are when we need to hold onto our faith.

If your mind is filled with fear, try concentrating on courage, so, the fear does not become rooted into your mind. If you find that impossible, divert your attention by prayer, writing affirmations, or saying a mantra. If that is not working, read something amusing, watch a comedy, or get active and do something that is fun.

Then when the fear has subsided, spend time in meditation or prayer to get in touch with your Inner Self and God. Use this time to build up fearless faith, flex those muscles and stay in control of your thoughts.
