To get what you want, you have to ask for it. For some it's through prayer, for others it's through personal affirmations. A God Box is a combination of both - an opportunity for you to write and send a special request into the universe, confident that the powers that be will make your dreams come true.


Step 1

Sit down with pen and paper in a quiet, relaxing place and make a list of everything you want in your life, big and small. These items might include money, a cruise, a house, a new coat, a loving relationship or the motivation to stick to an exercise regimen.

Step 2

Collect a stack of magazines. Flip through the magazines, page by page, tearing out any word or image that appeals to you and represents what you want, whether it's a dollar sign, a picture of a polar bear in Alaska or the world peace.

Step 3

Cover your shoe box in craft paper or construction paper in the color of your choice. Use your glue stick or tape to secure the edges.

Step 4

Use your scissors to carefully cut a 2- to 3-inch slit in the middle of the shoebox lid, wide enough for you to put folded slips of paper through it.


Step 5

Go through your stack of magazine clippings and cut out the images and words. Use your glue stick to cover the shoebox with these images and words in whatever design pleases you. Don't cover up the slit in the top. Arrange your clippings around it.

Step 6

Close your box and grab your list of wants you made in Step One. Fold the list and slip into the top of the box. This is your first God Box request of the universe.


Step 7

Keep your God Box in a personal place where you can see it every day. Every time you want something, write it down on a small slip of paper, fold it up and put it in your God Box. Then forget about it, confident that the universe will listen and respond.


The universe operates according to the Law of Attraction, meaning whatever you think about is what you are going to get. Keep that in mind when making requests of the universe. For example, instead of writing "I want to get out of debt," write "I want to be financially free." If you're always concentrating on your debt, that's what you're going to attract. If you have more magazine clippings than you have room for on your box, hang them on a bulletin board, make a collage or use them to decorate the inside of your box. There's a slit in your box for a reason. You could lift the lid to put your requests or prayers inside, but then you'd see the other pieces of paper. The idea with a God Box is to ask the universe for what you want, then forget about it. There's no need to be reminded of old requests every time you have a new one. Only when your God Box is full should you open it and look through the requests you've made of the universe. Hopefully, you'll be surprised at just how many of your wishes came true. Once your God Box is full, it's time to make a new one. You can start from scratch or you can redesign the one you already have, repeating Steps One through Seven above. It just depends on how much space you have in your home to store all your God Boxes through the years. When you come across slips of paper with requests that have yet to come true, you may want to add them to your new God Box, provided it's something you still want.
