Most of us are constantly asking the Universe (you may call it God, Higher Power, or by any religious name of God) what we want or wish for.
The tenor of the request can vary from person to person, situation to situation. Sometimes, it is just a wish. It can become a prayer or a request in no time. You can demand, beg, exhort, and give an ultimatum if your wishes are not met.
All this leads to one question. In fact, a slew of questions.
How should you ask the Universe for something you want?
Is there a right and wrong way to ask?
Is a more intense form of requesting like demanding or begging more effective?
This article tries to answer some of these questions for you. Here you will also find the 7-step approach to ask the Universe what you want.
Is there a right way to ask the Universe?
The Universe is benevolent. It is always trying to make you happy and satisfy your wishes. It always has your back and offers guidance to take the right path. The Universe is always aware of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions. It is in touch with what is going on in your life.
All this means that you can just think about something you want and wish for it. The Universe takes the cue from your thoughts and tries to find ways to make it possible. There is no need for loud demands. Nor do you need to demean yourself by beseeching or begging.
Your wish will have a better chance of realization if you pay attention to related aspects. Such as establishing a good communication channel with the Universe, making sure that this is what you want, following through with intentional action, and preparing yourself to receive what you asked for.
The 7-step process of asking the Universe
1. Be sure, be precise, be concise
One of the deciding factors of a successful wish is your conviction. You may have many fleeting wants and whimsical thoughts. Calling all of them wishes and expecting the Universe to make them happen is preposterous.
Before asking the Universe, you need to make certain that this is something you really want. Something you are passionate about. If you are not serious about the wish, the Universe is bound to ignore it.
When at it, gather more details about your wish. You need to be precise and concise at the same time. Your wish should have all the relevant details so that there is no room for confusion. But it should not be too convoluted with irrelevant details. You are the best judge of this.
2. Ask the Universe
How do you talk to the Universe? The actual process of asking the Universe is simple. Thinking about it in your mind is enough for the Universe. You can also say it out loud or write it down.
The realization of your wish depends on you remembering it often. To this end, you can write it on a post-it note and stick it where it will catch your eye often. Make it part of a vision board. Think of innovative ways to keep your wish at the top of your mind.
3. Raise your energy vibrations
Manifesting with the law of attraction relies on the principle of “like attracts like”. To get what you want you need to match the energy of your desire. The law offers many tools and techniques to help you achieve this.
4. Take intentional action
You can make your wishes a reality only with supportive action. If you want something but do nothing about it, it is not going to work. As you are aware, the Universe helps those who help themselves.
For example, your dream job has a chance of manifesting when you apply for the same and attend interviews. Your wish for abundance has a chance of success when you actively look for avenues to earn money. Your dream partner will materialize when you become active in the dating scene.
5. Trust the Universe
The rest of the steps are important but the success of manifesting your desire revolves around your trust in the powers of the Universe and its ability to make your desires come true. You need to believe that the Universe is on your side and always has your back.
Trust is not something that you can develop overnight. It needs patience, perseverance, and time. Making easy-to-manifest intentions and making them successful can help in building trust.
6. Let it go
You should indeed keep your goal at the top of your mind. This doesn’t mean getting obsessed over it. There is a fine line separating the two. To succeed in manifesting your desires, you should be able to identify the distinction.
Once you have finished all the steps of manifestation and fulfilled your part of the deal, it is time to let it go. This means, taking a breather and relaxing. You can still continue to do affirmations, visualization, and the rest. But take care not to overdo it. Because obsession has negative energy and it will bring your overall energy vibrations down. This will be counterproductive for successful manifestation.
7. Watch out for signs
Now, it is time for you to sit back and allow the Universe to do its bit. Make sure that you are keeping your eyes open for opportunities. These are the blessings that the Universe is sending your way to make your wish a reality. If you are having a hard time identifying them, asking the Universe for a sign is an option.
When you see an opportunity, grab it with both hands and make the best of it. When you ask the Universe for money, don’t expect the Universe to drop it on your lap in a neatly sealed bundle. When you are asking the Universe for a specific person, the person is not going to appear before you like magic. Trusting the universe to bring love is alright. But you should utilize the breaks and chances that come your way.
You have to take constructive steps to get what you want. The Universe opens up pathways, guides you on the right path, removes hurdles, and makes sure you achieve what you set out to.
You can indeed ask the Universe for anything you want in any way you want. There is no right or wrong way of asking. But it would be helpful to know that there is no need to be more forceful by demanding or begging. Just making the request in your mind or praying to the universe is good enough. Your request reaches the Universe without fail every time.
You should focus more on the other aspects of your wish as detailed above. Moreover, making the request and waiting for the Universe to deliver your wish is futile. You need to take supportive action and ready yourself to receive the wish.
Trust the Universe and do your bit. Your wish will manifest in no time.
