Do you ask for what you want? As I have been watching my daughter (Jasmine) grow up I am humbled and grateful to be so involved in the process, it truly is beautiful. Children really do have all the wisdom to re-teach us some essential life lessons that we may have lost along the way.
There are three things I notice with her:
- She keeps asking for what she wants until she gets it
- She is super clear on what she wants.
- Her desire and requests come from a knowing that she can get what she wants, no questions. In fact it appears that not getting it; doesn’t even enter into her mind. (no lack mentality here).
These three life lessons are probably some of the key lessons that one could learn in life. Ask for what you want and keep asking. Most people ask once, if that and give up. A lot of people ask, then realise they do not have what they want, think they then cannot have it, and lose belief and hope that they can change the situation.
When you ask for what you want you are at the beginning of the process, the first step of many steps to manifestation of what you want. Ask for what you want, be very clear on what that is. Ask from a place of wanting rather than from a place of not having. Allow yourself to dream again. Be a child again and ask with that level of freedom.
You may have to ask for what you want more than once. Your conversations and thoughts then need to move in alignment with what you want. Everything needs to become about what you want. When Jasmine knows what she wants that is her exclusive focus. It is all she talks about. We can learn a lot from this. She never talks about not having it, how hard it is to get it or that she may not get it.
Ask for what you want and then monitor what you talk about it, hold yourself accountable to this. Ask yourself in regards to what you want – what does it look like, what does it feel, and who do you need to be to already have it. If I already have it, what would I be doing, saying, feeling and how would I be acting. What actions would I take now if I was already there?
If you were to be childlike again and use that level of exclusive focus what sort of results would you produce. Imagine how much fun life would be.
