Most of us find it easy to pray when things are in the rough. However, often times when things are going really well, our prayer practice suffers. Part of this is because we haven’t established a strong enough connection with the Divine to make it a part of our daily routine. Part of it is because subconsciously we are programmed not to ask for too much. However, the universe is an expansive place. The Divine loves to give and wants to have as many opportunities to shower us with blessings as are imaginable. Let me tell you, Divine, given the chance, can imagine ways to please us that we can’t!
When things are going somewhat to your liking, the prayer should be, “thank you – more please!”
When things are pretty darn good, the prayer should be, “thank you – more please!”
When things are out of this world unbelievably good, the prayer should be, “thank you – more please!”
Developing a habit of asking for more does a couple of things. First of all it gets you focused on the good stuff. You start looking at your life, looking at what you like, and seeking out things to ask for more of. That is a very powerful place to be. You become a very powerful creator in a positive way when you are focusing on getting more of what you want. MORE is BETTER.
Secondly, this practice keeps you in communication with the Source or the Divine. Keeping those lines of communication open is key to developing a solid relationship. This gives you an opportunity to build on your relationship in good times and bad. It provides an opportunity for further spiritual growth because the divine gets constant feedback on your likes. It’s a nice little way of getting to know you. “Thank you- more please!”, is a way more pleasant to hear then constant drones of complaints and whining. The Divine really likes the opportunity to please rather then have to fix.
So, look around and see what you’ve got that you want more of. More friendship? More family? More checks in the mail??
Don’t be shy! Just ask.
