Ask! For it is Written…


Ask! For it is written…
Ask, and it will be given to you
Seek, and you will find
Knock, and it will be opened to you ~ Mathew 7:7
Sounds easy right? Then why is it that this seems not work a lot of the time?
.
First of all, what method are you using for asking? Prayer? Meditation? Affirmations? Visualizations? Talking to the sky whimsically?
.
All of them will ‘work’ if, indeed you desire what you are asking for and believe that you can have it. Let’s see how that works…
.
A common exercise in ‘manifesting’ what you want is asking for / expecting a free cup of coffee.
.
It works most of the time for lots of people because most people like coffee, so they have no hidden resistance to getting it. And, its’ a small enough gift and social amenity that most people are not ashamed of getting it ‘for free.’
.
You ask for, focus on, accept that, you are receiving a cup of coffee for free in an  unexpected way and… someone, somewhere says, ‘hey, would you like some coffee?’
.
OK… those of you that prefer tea can feel your resistance to this exercise. You don’t like coffee. So, asking for what you don’t really enjoy pushes it away.
.
Ask for what  you want… tea, earl grey, hot.
Others of you will feel guilt rising about getting something for nothing, especially from a stranger.
 .
If you have any beliefs about being worthy of the kindness of strangers… or are afraid of strangers for that matter… you will, without any sense of doing it, block the gift.
 .
You would rather not deal with the emotions that arise so you don’t allow the manifestation. Then  you get to say, ‘see, this stuff doesn’t work!’
 .
If you simultaneously say yes and no, you get no… because no is what you already have. Yes, is a change.
 .
People always ask for what they don’t have. You don’t have to ask for what you already do have. But, why don’t you have whatever you are asking for, already?
Because… you have some, usually deeply hidden, emotion or belief that has always been in the way of having it!
 .
If, indeed, you are ready to accept / allow it into  your life now, you won’t usually get a miraculous manifestation… sometime  you do… but mostly you get what most people resist the most.
.
You get the opportunity to heal whatever is in the way of getting what you asked for. And that usually looks like your life going to the proverbially dark chaotic place in a hand basket.
.
But, now you know that what you are REALLY asking for is the opportunity to clear, let go of, and/or heal whatever you carry inside you that has kept you from your heart’s desire.
.
That is what all the healing work and spiritual practices are really about.
.
Call it getting quiet. Call it coming closer to Divinity. Call it knowing  your deepest heart’s desire and pain.
.
There are lots of ways to do it and lots of people to help. But, you have to be willing to do that hard, dirty, scary, messy, emotional work… for as long as it takes… to get where you want to be.
.
That can take a while… or just one brilliant moment of clarity and release.
Then… everything becomes magical.
And, you get free coffee and perfect parking spaces,too!
