Be careful what you ask for!
We’ve all heard this and you’ve probably even said it to someone your Self! As cliché’ as it may sound, there is such Truth to this statement…
When you ASK for something you want, there is a powerful intention that goes out into the Universal Flow of Life as energy. When you Ask for something, you are typically clear on what it is you want, right?
But, what if you were not clear or maybe uncertain about what you wanted, then what?
Thoughts are energy
Thoughts are energy, just as all things around you are energy as well.
It is your emotions, which fuel your thoughts, which drive the energy behind it! When you Ask for something specific, for instance, a job, a home, a car, more money, your intent is to receive what you are asking for. The emotion may stem from a want, a need or a desire… the emotion is what fuels the outcome of how, or if, you will receive what you want the way in which you believe you want it!
Often times, there is a feeling or a belief that is contradictory to what you want that becomes a block or barrier to you receiving it the way you want it. Using the above examples, let’s say your want is more money, yet you have a feeling of not deserving to have more or a belief consciousness of lack, this will in turn, block the Universal Flow of Abundance.
When an underlying old, out-dated belief is present, a natural programming within the mind operates out of a default mode. You can recognize it when you hear your Self saying things like… “I don’t want this old, broken down car” or “Easy come, Easy go” “it’s better to give than to receive” or any of the thought forms of an old paradigm.
Three steps to ask for what you want
The Gift of Asking for What you DO Want, becomes an art! A sacred dance! Here are three simple steps you can take beginning right now to learn how to Ask for what you Truly, Deeply Desire AND receive them!
First, Get clear about what you DO want vs. what you DON’T want!
Make it fun, play with it, get creative, experiment with it. When you say things like, I know I don’t want a car that breaks down all the time or I know I don’t want a relationship that isn’t supportive, this is Exactly What you WILL receive, MORE of what you Don’t want!! So learn to ask from a place of those things you Do want!
Second, Once you are clear on what you want, remember to add the phrase “or more” to ensure you are not limiting your Self from receiving something better for you. Then ask “What’s the best way to receive (whatever it is you are asking for).”
Breathe into it, feel it coming to you, see it happening and Know, Trust and have Faith that you Will Receive what you are asking for OR BETTER!
Third, Be open to receive it!!
I find within my own clients, the third step, being open to receive, is the most challenging.
We have grown accustomed in our society to have a “quick fix” We eat fast food, we consume antibiotics, we are always in a hurry to get somewhere quickly. This has created within our mindset, that when we are asking for something, we expect to see it NOW!
Playing the “waiting game” often becomes the Achilles heel! Impatience sets it, doubt begins to fester, you begin question “did I do it right” and a whole host of other sabotaging behaviors!!
It is within THIS time that you develop your spiritual muscles of Trust, Faith and Belief!
This is where you need to KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that what you are Asking for, OR BETTER, IS coming!! It may not show up the way in which you had envisioned it when you asked, but it will ALWAYS come…
Practice creating by asking!
Have Fun with it!
Most of us forget that we live upon Earth’s playground! Remember when you were young, playing in the playground at school? Swinging, monkey bars, slides, running, jumping without a care in the world. Bring back some of that Wonder and Imagination into your Creating and Asking.
