Asking For And Receiving What You Want

Neel Raman

Visitors: 119

Do you believe you deserve a wonderful, inspirational life? Do you think you can follow your dreams and live your visions?

All of us dream dreams and wish for a more honest way of spending our time on the earth. So many people know that if only they had this gift, or that skill, or that freedom, they would be able to drop what they're doing and immediately set off on their journey.

Just as setbacks and disappointments can be turned around and perceived as positive challenges, the same applies to those wishful longings. If only, we say, wishing we could pursue our passions in life and realise our full potential. If only.

If only what? If only you could let yourself? If only you didn't have so many commitments? If only you had the money?

Too many lives are stifled by the ‘if onlys’. Too many people lead lives of regret, wishing they had taken a different path or had made better use of their time, when in fact they're wasting that precious time by not deciding to take life by both hands and do something about it.

The only thing stopping you from achieving what you want is the belief that you have the skills and the courage to go for it. You simply have to remind yourself that you are capable of whatever it is you want to achieve - you only have to want it enough. You only have to make a space right there inside you for opportunities to come and find you ready and waiting.

And that's what it comes down to. Being open to what comes. Being aware that if you ask for what you want, and you are open and prepared to recognise it when it comes, you can have whatever it is you need.

This isn't about Santa Claus giving you a brightly packaged sparkly parcel if you sit on his knee. This is about asking the universe to fill you with energy to achieve what it is you want to achieve. If you envision what you want to achieve, and you see yourself being or doing the very thing you dream of, soon it will come knocking on your door in the most surprising of ways.

You have to ask for what it is you want and believe that it will come to you. Trust the universe to grant you your wishes.
