Whether you are praying, attempting to use the Law of Attraction or making a 'wish upon a star', there is something important you should know;
It is only prayers that ask *to* Love (as opposed to those that ask *for* Love) and followed by "Not my will, but Thine be done" that can be answered.
(That last bit shows that you have respect for your Creator's far greater wisdom in knowing what is good for you and what is not)
This is not some esoteric mumbo-jumbo but plain common sense and logical scientific fact.
Let's say for example, you are wishing for a new partner, but you are doing this because you are frustrated, have just been through a bad relationship or are in financial straits and are hoping to attract someone to look after you - ie. are trying to *escape* your present circumstances.
This amounts to asking *for* Love. You are asking the Universe to send you some Love. You are requesting that the universe does something (eg send you a rich partner) to help bail you out of your situation, relieve your misery, make your life happier, whatever.
You really want the 'ideal' partner, but your thoughts have been self-centered. You are in a hole and expect someone to be attracted to you ? - Why should they be ? Why would anyone want to link up with someone who is potentially going to be a drain and probably not return anything ?
You might have in your mind some image of how you would like things to be, but if you examine it carefully, how much of it is about what YOU can offer this "ideal" partner ? Are your thoughts about all the things you want to do for THEM or all the things you want THEM to do for YOU ?
The plain fact is that the relationship you seek cannot possibly work this way. Relationships only work when both parties *enhance* each others lives by being there. When a partner starts to become a pain in the ass, the relationship breaks down, sooner or later. Both partners cannot remain happy if the relationship is one-sided and remains that way.
So even if a potential partner DID come along, you would succeed in driving them away and then blame the Universe for not granting your wish. You EFFECTIVELY make it IMPOSSIBLE for your wish to be fulfilled.
Let's now contrast this with making the same wish, but from a totally different "mind-space".
You have no financial problems. Everything in your life is going great and there is nothing you really need anyone to help you with. All you want is to find someone to love. You are naturally generous, friendly, have lots of time for people and are great to be around because of your positive outlook on life and you have a LOT to offer a mate.
It now becomes a WHOLE lot more likely that your wish comes true. NATURALLY! You are not coming from a place of neediness but from one of givingness. That "ideal partner" you seek is much more likely now to show up as you are radiating the REALITY that getting together with you will be a good thing - for BOTH of you.
It is much easier for the universe (or world around you) to supply the answer to your prayers when you are coming from a positive space than a negative one.
If you are loving mother, then chances are you have seen how quickly and easily "the universe" responds when you made your wish for a child TO love.
If you are a successful businessman, then you will have probably seen how easy it is to find a wife TO Love.
Being the "Supreme Being", as it were, God (Love, the Universe etc) is aware of everything all of us are aware of. In that sense, God can be seen to be like the "ultimate" parent.
For those who argue that there is no proof that God exists, I have no words... Love exists everywhere and anyone who does not believe or has experienced Love is in a very sorry state...
If you are a parent and had two children - one, a brat, who never listens to you and demands "Gimme a million dollars NOW!". The other one is totally opposite and loves you and their sibling dearly and just prays for ways to love you both more. Which one would YOU help ?
The same thing applies if you are wishing for a job or anything else. The act of "wishing" or making a request is simply the act of making the world around you aware of your desire. The response you get back is totally dependent on the nature of the desire and the motives behind it, which are, generally, obvious to all. If you are a nigerian scammer, for instance, sending out scam emails to suck someone in to send you money, that is a request put out to the universe and, when people see it, they will usually see it for what it is and you will get nothing. You are not coming from a place of Love.
It really is SO simple and OBVIOUS that the law of attraction won't work if you make yourself unattractive to that which you are trying to attract :-)
The motive for writing this blog was simply so that its words may help someone or someones, somewhere. It comes from a place of givingness. Thus, the request, by the writer, for God to assist in creating it, is instantly granted and thus, the blog is created.
Now, to further prove the point, if I was to turn around now and ask you to send me $1 for this information, even thought it might be worth a million times that in terms of how it could change your life, you would probably not consider paying it because the whole motive for writing it has now become one of neediness - ie. I need money and am attempting to sell you something.
Well, I am not. I do not have to. My wish was to be able to do something to help as many as possible of the people I see out there making wishes for things that will, in all likelihood, never eventuate. ALL my wishes and prayers that ask *to* love are always granted - quickly and easily.
And so can yours be.
