It seems like a simple enough concept. If you want something, you have to ask for it first. But you’d be surprised how many of us have trouble with the simple act of asking for the things we want.
Remember when you were a baby? Well, you probably can’t remember back that far, but you’re probably aware of the fact that when you were a baby, you had no problem asking for what you wanted. That’s how babies survive. They ask to be fed, to be changed, to be cuddled and to be put to bed – and they usually get what they want.
But as you got older, chances are you started to have mixed feelings about asking for what you wanted. Like when you asked your parents for a candy bar, or an ice cream cone, and they said, “no.”
Maybe they even got angry, or discouraged you from asking for things.
Now this is not to say there’s anything wrong with parents saying no. They’re in charge, and most of the time, they know what’s best.
But for a lot of us, those early rejections from mom and dad made us start thinking twice about asking for what we really want from life.
And from a Law of Attraction standpoint, this is no-no. Let me explain why.
You may not realize this, but your subconscious mind has a lot of power. But most of us just kind of let our minds run around, flitting from idea to idea. When we could – and SHOULD – be putting that power to work.
When we want things, and we don’t feel comfortable asking for them, we don’t use our subconscious minds to attract them to us. How many of us approach the things we want from a negative standpoint? For example, say you’re a woman and you want a boyfriend. But you don’t say to the universe, “I want a boyfriend.”
You say, “How come I can’t find a man???”
At that point, the universe hears you loud and clear. It hears “I can’t find a man.”
And so you don’t.
Other times, we’re not specific about what we want. Some people are constantly saying.”I hate my job.” When from a Law of Attraction standpoint, they should not be talking about the job they hate, but the job they want.
Say you asked for “a new job with a six-figure salary where I get to work with people in a position of authority. And I want an office with a window.”
When you do that, you are telling the universe EXACTLY what you want.
When you think about the SPECIFIC things you want, you focus the power of your subconscious mind on attracting those things to you.
Which allows the Law of Attraction to work its magic.
So the next time you really, really want something, think about it, focus on it and ask.
You’ll be putting the Law of Attraction to work for you.ou.
