But many folks, especially Christians, have deep-rooted beliefs that wanting more is “bad” – which makes it extremely difficult for them to focus on what it is they really want.
While this most definitely includes our desire for material possessions, it goes much further – such as – people refusing to dream big dreams for their lives: careers they want to explore; causes they believe in and want to contribute to; and dreams for their families.
This results in apathetic acceptance of the status quo and hidden fear of changing. In other words, a silent acceptance of the negative vibes in our lives as normal and the belief that it is all we can or should expect.
And, this is not what God wants for us. In fact, this way of thinking is proof that the Enemy is alive and well in our minds today! John 10:10 tells us: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Because of this, you may have spent most of your life virtuously suppressing the desire for more in your life, and now step one to God’s law of attraction is telling you to ask for it! Even if you want to, What are you supposed to ask for, anyway?
Keep in mind that you are already asking for things all day long according to the principles of the law of attraction.
Remember, whatever you put your focus, attention and energy into, is what you will attract into your life. So, if you are deliberately focusing on having a satisfying relationship with your teenager, the chances are much greater that you will have a satisfying relationship with him or her than if you continue to focus on what he or she is doing wrong.
And, the law of attraction doesn’t recognize words such as don’t, not, and no as things that you would just as soon stay out of your life.
Consider when you are doing an internet search. If you were to type in “no baseball”, your search results will most definitely contain all kinds of information on baseball. In the same way, by telling yourself “I don’t want to fight with my son all the time”, you are placing your attention on fighting with your son and that is most likely what will happen the next time you see him. To be flip, you are just asking for it…
So in order to identify what we want to ask God for, we need to monitor our thoughts and ask the question: Is this what I want or not? If it is, you now know what to ask for. If it isn’t, ask yourself the question: “What Do I want instead?”
