It never hurts to ask!!
Have you ever blocked yourself from going for what you really desired because it seemed too outrageous to attempt? Or has the fear of looking stupid, even though the opportunity was ripe, kept you from asking for what you want? If so, keep reading. There is an inventive fifth grade-writing teacher in Michigan who has helped his students get over these hurdles early in life. One of his class assignments is to write to local businesses and make “outlandish” requests. The teacher’s primary intention in making this assignment is to encourage students to make letter-writing fun. So, in addition to making the outlandish request, his students are to tell something personal about themselves and explain their project. The strange and interesting thing is that the kids usually get what they have asked for. Some of the requests from businesses that have been granted include a month’s supply of chocolate milk and a lifetime supply of french-fries. Thus besides providing the students with an inventive, fun writing assignment, the teacher contributes hands-on experience in one of life’s important lessons. That no matter how outrageous you might perceive your wishes to be, you might as well ask as you just might receive the very thing you desire. It never hurts to ask! What is it you want to ask for? Often we feel we must ask a specific person or business to fulfill our desire, but the truth is that you can go straight to the Universe. We live in a quantum field of energy that is ever ready to receive your request. Much like a shipping clerk that processes orders as they arrive, the Universe unequivocally, non-judgmentally, and unconditionally fills your requests whether they are positive or negative. That means if you are continuously thinking of getting sick, it processes that as an order. Or, if you are concentrated on experiencing joy in every aspect ofv life, it unerringly provides that opportunity. If you were placing an order on-line – Amazon.com for instance – you would be responsible for ordering the exact item you wanted. If you placed an order for a different book or shirt than the one you desire, that is what you will get. Thus, the concept of being clear and definite in your desire is relevant. Often, when I ask people what they want, they tell me “I don’t want to work long hours, and I don’t want a demanding boss.” It can be a bit like pulling hair to get some folks to confess, “what I want is to work three days a week and have a positive work community.” Whew, now was that hard? I think the resistance comes from the idea that it is not okay to ask for help or to want at all. Yet, nothing happens until you get clear on your desire. So, what do you want? Can you state it in clear terms so that a shipping clerk will know exactly what to send your way? “I want a lovely, fun-filled vacation in Hawaii.” “I choose a healthy, vibrant body that exudes well-being.” “I decree abundant creativity as I take on my next project.” “I choose fun, laughter, and joy as I journey forth in each day.” See it is not so hard.
