…the universe, that is. She’s listening to you. Some people would call it God or some other spiritual entity. But I believe she, the universe, is listening as well. If you aren’t saying anything to her then that’s exactly what she’s going to deliver.
I know this sounds “SECRET”esque or something. I guess that’s because it kind of is.
I’m not saying that you can just blurt out “I want to win a million dollars” and voila there’s your pile of cash. Well, actually, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
I don’t know how a million dollars works, but I do know that everything I have ever asked for (and believed that I deserved) I have received. That probably sounds really strange, but this kind of was just brought to my attention recently when I was asked to teach several video classes. I realized that last summer, exactly one year ago, I told myself that was a goal of mine. I wanted to teach video classes to young people. I didn’t know how it would happen. And when I tried to set something up, it fell through. But I really, really wanted it. This year, however, I taught 3 video classes in the matter of a few weeks. I was slightly overwhelmed at the time, but I had asked for it. I was so grateful and the classes were everything I had hoped for.
Then I started thinking back to all of the things I have in my life, and how they got there. I have literally asked for them all. Every single one of them. From a friend that lives close by that I can cook dinner with, to a guy that treats me like I always dreamed about. My job even. The projects I’m working on. I’ve asked for this all. Writing this blog. Writing even at all. My new car. These were all dreams at one point. Daydreams, mostly, of who I wanted to be and what I wanted my life to be like.
Just when you think you don’t know how it’s going to all work out. It always does. No matter how twisted and jumbled up everything seems at the time, somehow it always untangles itself. But you have to have dreams. Goals. Ambitions. Whatever you want to call it, it doesn’t matter. It’s all the same thing…it’s all who we want to be.
Our minds are much more powerful than we give them credit for. There is a cliche quote, “You are what you think.” SO TRUE. It all starts with a thought. And literally as I just wrote that sentence I glanced over and sitting next to my laptop is a notepad at my 2nd job that reads “Everything you do starts with a thought–start thinking!” Really, universe? You creep me out sometimes. And as a side note (ha! pun not intended at first, but then after I re-read this, I definitely intend to keep that), this 2nd job I’m working as we speak is also something I asked for; an easy 2nd job to help cover the tight months and save money for New York. Not only is the easiest job ever, it covers my gym membership every month and it’s a stones throw away from where I live. Thanks, Universe.
This idea of asking for what you want is nothing new, obviously. Some people call it praying. Others call it positive affirmations. I truly feel like someone or something is looking out for me. Especially with the last year of hellaciousness, something kept me on track. Something kept me safe. And something guided me to where I am now. Happier than I could have ever imagined. More successful than I could have imagined. More of a lot of things than I could have imagined. But they all started with a wish.
If you don’t understand why something is happening, be patient. And know that she’s always listening. All you have to do is ask. So start asking. What’s the worse that could happen?
Yours being careful what she wishes for,
