Between Asking and Getting
We have many wants, new cars, homes, money, relationships and love, just to name a few. We don’t run out of things and experiences to want for, to ask for. Wanting and asking are the really easy parts of our creating process. How to actually get what we are wanting is what we all want to know how to do.
Let’s cover some basic steps in working with the Law of Attraction. First we want. Our wants are generally based on a natural need and desire for creature comfort. We all want a comfortable home, trusty car, health, love, food and money.
When we don’t have these things in the quantity or quality that suits us we are aware of our wanting. We say out loud and to anyone who will listen that we want something. Our awareness of lack in our lives gives us opportunity to express a desire for something we do want.
The other day I had a unique experience of understanding the in between time .. that time between asking and getting. I awoke early with pain in my back. Now this made me realize that I really wanted to experience wholeness in my body. I was more aware of my desire for health and a good feeling back as I walked down the steps bent over. I went into the kitchen and took two Advil. My expectation was that the Advil would relieve the pain in my body. I swallowed them down with a cup of coffee and went off to the office to read email. I realized in just ten minutes or so that my back was perfect. I was experiencing perfection in my body.
I didn’t even think about the process of how the Advil worked, I didn’t pester it, checking on it’s progress or directing it’s movement in my body. I didn’t think about it as I sat reading email and smiling, feeling good about my life. At this point I had one of those “AH Ha” moments. I realized that between asking and getting is expecting. I expected the Advil and my body to work together to bring about the condition which I expressed a desire for. I know that my body’s natural state is health, anything other than that is not normal for me.
This place of “knowing” is the between asking and giving part of creating. I know that my body is perfect, right now. Any sign of discomfort is outside what is normal for me. So asking for my body to return to it’s normal state is very believable for me. This principle applies to others acts of creation as well. If I ask for more money, but deep down inside my ‘knowing’, my belief, is that money is hard for me to come by.. then that is what I continue to create.
I read a while back that we don’t get what we ask for, or what we want; rather we get what we expect. If my expectations, my beliefs are on lack, then lack is what I expect and what I attract over and over again.
The key is to identify your beliefs about your health, money, relationships, etc and work on changing these core values, your expectations.
Begin by identifying what you do believe and expect in life. In a notebook begin a page titled “What I believe”.
On the first line write About my body. Now off the top of your head begin to write down the things that come to you. Write quickly, don’t think, just write.
Continue until you feel you have covered your thoughts on your body.
Go to another page and write What I believe about money. Continue this exercise with as many subjects as you can think of. For example you can pages on love, relationships, children, jobs, parents, friends.
Each day go over what you have written and begin a new page with your belief system.
If you wrote on the About my body page that it’s fat, sick, tired, ugly. Then write My body is perfect right now. My body knows how to heal itself and does so constantly. All the cells of my body work in harmony to restore balance and wholeness.
If you wrote that money is hard to come by, there is never enough, etc, then proceed by writing something similar to… There is abundance everywhere. I am always surrounded by abundance. Prosperity and well being are natural for me.
What you are in the process of doing is changing your core beliefs into beliefs that will attract what it is that you really want in your life. This is the fastest and easiest way to create and attract what you really want. If you are not aware of the core beliefs in your life then you will experience frustration and aggravation trying to create something you don’t really believe in. It’s not just a matter of saying positive things and thinking positive things, although these activities will eventually point out to you that you don’t really believe what you are saying, they will not change your expectations.
It’s like wanting to be healthy and telling yourself that your body is created to be perfect… BUT a lot of my family members suffered this same affliction. You cancel out the positive thoughts with the core belief. The core belief is where the power is.
We all have reprogramming to do in our lives. We have adopted many beliefs without even thinking about them since childhood. Some of the all time favorites are
life is hard wow, do we really want life to be hard?
No pain no gain, horrible thought. Why do I want to hurt in order to be successful?
I don’t have a money tree in the backyard. Money doesn’t grow on trees. Tell that to the people with all the big bucks who trade in trees, let’s see paper companies, lumber companies. LOL you get the idea.
Sickness runs in families. Drug companies and doctors really love this one, it keeps them in business.
When we identify our core beliefs we are then able to shift them to beliefs that are more in line with what we really want. Remember, beliefs are your expectations about life and how it works. Your expectations are what you continually attract more of to yourself. By being aware of and working to change your beliefs, you change your expectations and change your life.
