The Power of Asking For What You Want
"Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find,
When you ask for what you want, you literally set in motion the manifestation process. Asking is like opening the door to an airless chamber. Once you open this door, all of the air will naturally come rushing in.
When you ask the Universe for support, the door to manifesting your desire opens and all of the resources needed to create this manifestation begin to rush toward you at breakneck speed. All of the opportunities, people, and resources you need magically begin to show up without you having to do a thing as long as you ask with conviction, and let go of any attachments you might have about how the Universe's support will look.
"You can't ask for what you want unless you know what it is. A lot of people don't know what they want or they want much less than they deserve. First you have figure out what you want. Second, you have to decide that you deserve it. Third, you have to believe you can get it. And, fourth, you have to have the guts to ask for it." ~ Barbara De Angelis
In order for the Universe to help you, you must be very clear about what it is that you are asking for. Many people suffer from the wishy-washy disease, and have trouble sticking to one request.
If you ask the Universe in a wishy-washy uncommitted way, you will manifest very wish-washy and unsatisfying results. Many people do not directly ask for what they want because they are afraid that whatever they desire is too lofty, too hard to get, too unrealistic, too selfish, etc.
Basically, they have an internal judgment about what they desire that dampens their ability to ask for what they truly want. All of this inner dialogue around asking for what you want is simply past conditioning from your childhood that you have definitely outgrown. Stop letting your past affect the present.
Simply decide that you will not let all of the ideas and notions you digested as a child impact your ability to manifest what you want. Decide right now to ask for what you want and ignore the noisy protests of your mind.
Are you tired of living a life that you do not find satisfying? If so, it is time to start asking for what you really really want. So what do you really really really want to manifest in your life? Stop right now, and check inside. This answer lies right on the surface of your being since you have pushed it aside so so many times. Go ahead and give yourself permission to admit to yourself and others what you are really dreaming of. Stop hiding your true desires under a bed of internal judgments and misperceptions. Pull away the cloak behind which you have kept your desires, and get real about what your heart deeply yearns for. Write whatever this is down without judging it in any way.
"When it is said to you, 'Ask, and it is given,' there is no more
Now it is time to ask the Universe for what you want. When you get clear on what this is, simply ask the Universe to support you in manifesting this. Make your request out loud in a strong powerful affirming voice. Say something like, "Universe, I ask that you support me in manifesting (put your request here). I ask that this be done to this highest good of all concerned. Thank you for fulfilling my request."
Continue to make this request any time you doubt your ability to manifest this desire, or feel contracted emotion around its manifestation such as fear or anger. Soon you will notice that the Universe is indeed answering your request. In a matter of hours or days, the people and resources that you need to manifest your desire will begin to appear in your life as if by magic.
