Law of Attraction in Action: Asking for Support

This is post 136 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to attract all that you need. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

Yesterday I answered the question, Why do I have such a hard time asking for help? Today I’ll speak of asking, or not asking, from a spiritual point of view. While being hesitant to ask for what you want is s a normal response, it sends a negative message to the Universe and is unfair to you! Those thoughts are counterproductive to progressing as much as you could or getting what you need. Trying to do everything yourself can burn you out. It reflects a lack of trust that you’ll get help and feelings of not being deserving of support. And it says that you’re choosing to not give people a chance to help you.

When we try to do everything ourselves, the Law of Attraction hears that we don’t want or expect support, and therefore we don’t attract any.

The ANTIDOTE? Let the Universe help you! Use the Law of Attraction to change the dynamics so you can ask for and get the support you need. As I said in my post, Law of Attraction in Action: Holding onto Faith, if you convince yourself you deserve the help and keep your eye on the goal, support comes when you ask. Expecting a positive response helps you get it. Expecting to be turned down gets you turned down.

The bible says, “Ask, and it shall be given you.” Asking tells the Universe you’re making an effort and you’re more likely to get support.

So begin by asking for spiritual support. I’ve worked with people who even have trouble with this. I finally learned that God wants us to ASK for what we need. So when I’m finding it hard to ask people for favors or other stuff, I first turn inward, look up, and say, “it’s hard for me to ask for this but I really want to. Please help me to do it.” Remarkable things have happened when I did that. Once I wanted to get in touch with someone who is very well known and asked for help in doing that. Before I could ask, I heard from the person about something else. Coincidence? I don’t think so! That was part of the help I got when I asked. And I did get what I wanted!

Doing spiritual asking first can change the dynamic between you and the person you want something from and make it easier to ask.

Harness the power of the Law of Attraction by asking for what you need with conviction. The more you ask, the more likely you are to get what you need. I know it’s hard to do but it does get easier as you keep going. The stronger your faith becomes, the easier it is to believe it’s okay to ask. And, the more you love yourself, the more you know you deserve to ask for what you want, whatever it is. On Friday I’ll have tips for asking for what you want in ways that get results. Stay tuned!

    The only person we’re ever trying to convince is ourselves.

    And the Lord said,”Fear not…”. He also said, “Believe and not doubt..”. Good advice if hard to follow for us mere humans. Keep focused on this and other timeless advice to achieve your goal. I like your path.

    Interestingly,

    Law of Attraction is all about ‘Universal Gravitation’ as postulated by Newton, Einstein, Joie, and others. It works silently, invisibly, and in co-creation with all – just like the air we breathe.
