Missing grace in different aspects of your life? Could it be that “You have not, because you ask not”. James 4:2
It is necessary to muster up the courage to ask for what you want in life. We can’t expect the world around us to know what is in our head. When we try to do so many things in our power and still come up empty, we become aggravated and discouraged. Often times we fight, quarrel, or remain depressingly silent, and all it takes is just a respectful appeal to shift the powers in our favor. So, ask BIG, and expect BIG!
Our desire has to essentially encompass the element of faith, which creates a concoction that will set a powerful intention. Just like in the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne, she discusses the three steps in achieving your intentions with the Law of Attraction.
▪ Ask – The universe can’t deliver without first knowing what it is that you desire. You must be crystal clear on what you want, and have a passionate yearning for it. Upon defining your aim, ask for what you want by speaking aloud, praying, and focusing your thoughts on what is to be manifested.
▪ Believe – You must truly believe that what you ask for will become yours, by envisioning yourself in the finished picture. How will you feel when get there? Savor the sensation as if the desire is already manifested.
▪ Receive – Unlimited resources are just within reach, so live in a state of expectation. When opportunity comes your way you must not hesitate. Express gratitude and be open to all the possible ways for things to materialize.
At this moment, I know there may be skeptics pleading the case that they have been asking for years, when they’re really just arguing for their limitation. You ought to consider, what is the quality of your asking?
Although you may be asking for things in your life you might be unconsciously sabotaging yourself. If your mind is engrossed with thoughts of doubt and lack, you will be unable to receive gifts or blessings into your life. Unfortunately, many people are a part of this vicious cycle. Due to their scarcity complex, many don’t truly believe that they will receive their desires, or think that they don’t deserve any greatness that is in store for them.
Manifestation requires you to openly receive and accept all life’s goodies. I’m sure you’re curious to learn the art of receiving; let me being by saying, you get what you expect in life. Your persistent thought patterns and beliefs produce your life results. So, let’s channel our thoughts to fulfill our hearts desires.
Start off by asking specifically for what you want, and watering your desires with faith. To further the manifestation process, you will cultivate your emotions and visualization skills, by acting as if you already have what you want. Spend time envisioning that new car, new home, new lover, etc. and anticipate all your blessings. Through implementing all these steps, you are beginning to attract what you want and setting yourself up for being open to receive.
So, what’s keeping you from asking; pride, rejection, or fear? You can completely transform your life by simply asking. Inclined to get your needs met you should seek out assistance. Solicit help from your friends or family, but most importantly ask God, spirit, or universe (whatever you prefer to say), and listen for the response through synchronicities and your intuition.
Have you humbled yourself enough and expressed your need? Are you asking with faith, or in doubt? What are some of your requests and expectations? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
