Periodically we all want to make a change -- move to a new place, get a new job, start a new relationship, and so on. And we make efforts and discover they are not working. We can't seem to get what we want.
At this point most of us are inclined to go smaller, ask for something less, as a way to finally get what we want. "All right, I'll settle for . . . just make it happen at last!" we say in exasperation. The belief is if we don't ask for too much, we'll get what we want.
It's an interesting stance we take, one we might have taken as children with our parents. And we treat the Universe/All That Is as a parent, without realizing it.
But we're the creators here! We don't have to take the attitude of asking a parent, negotiating what we're going to get.
And the Universe, All That Is's nature is expansiveness, creation, abundance, boundless wealth. It wants us to be as big a channel for the wonderful universal energy as we can possibly be.
So, frequently, when we're stuck and can't make something happen, it's not because we're asking for too much, but because we're asking for too little. Simply, we're giving universal energy too small a channel, too small a conduit through which it can flow.
Change your thinking. Ask for what feels really true to you, your highest truth, whatever makes you sing inside, your body vibrate with joy and excitement.
It's always easier to create when we're in alignment with our soul potential, our highest light, which is always something that makes us feel fantastic.
Think of what will make you wildly happy, ecstatic -- that's the direction in which to go.
