Your Prayers Aren’t Always Answered   2 comments

I know, I know what you’re saying… prayers aren’t always answered?  Yuh huh!!!  Yes they are!  Okay then, you’re right.  They are always answered.  So why is it then that we’ve all had moments in our lives when we’ve prayed and prayed and prayed for something and got nothing?  We’ve meditated on and visualized our desires and still… crickets.  The Bible says, “…ask and you shall receive.”  Simple, right?  Sure, as long as you’re asking for what you actually want.  And therein lies the issue.  Many times in life we are asking for things we don’t actually want.  We think we know what we want, but do we really?

One thing most people pray for in life is money!  If I were to offer you $10M right now, I bet you would take it, right?  Of course!  Now, what if as I were sliding the briefcase over to you I informed you that you couldn’t spend any of it… EVER.  What now?  Would you still want the $10M?  I’m sure the answer would be no.  What’s the point of having all that money if you can’t spend it?  So then, it’s really not the money you want is it?  Then what do you want?

You want what the money can get you.  And what can money get you?  Well there’s cars and big houses and trips and clothes and shoes and ummmm… oh!  Now you can quit the job you hate and finally pursue your passion for gardening.  Basically, now you can be free!  That’s why little pieces of green paper with men’s faces on them are so valuable… they can buy you freedom.  Freedom to do what you want, have what you want, go where you want, etc.  So really, it’s freedom that you want, but you’ve been praying for green pieces of paper!

The reality is your prayers are always answered.  The Universe, God, The Source, Consciousness whatever you call it always gives us exactly what we want.  The problem is, many times we are asking for things we don’t actually want.

Underneath every desire is a core desire; the real desire.  For money, the core desire is usually freedom.  For other desires in your life, there are other core desires.  The key is to dig beneath the surface of your superficial wish and discover what you really want when you’re asking The Universe for something.  A great way to do so is just what we did with the money example.  Ask yourself if whatever you’re desiring was all you could have, no perks, no bonuses, just the desire, would you still want it?  Would you be satisfied?  If the answer is no, then you can be sure there is a core desire underneath that must be discovered.  Usually the core desires fall into general, universal categories like:  I want to be happy.  I want to be free.  I want to have peace of mind, etc.  The Universe doesn’t work well with mixed messages.  When you are clear about what you really want it will manifest much more quickly than when your desires are clouded by confusion.

The next time you decide you want something; make sure you do a little digging first and find out what your core desire is; what is it you really want?  Then ask for that.    If you want freedom in your life, ask for freedom; not money to get you freedom.  Cut out the middle man.  Let go of the picture of how you think it should be and just ask for your core desire.  It will absolutely manifest.  God will absolutely give you what you ask for.  It may not look the way you imagined it would, but trust it will be exactly what you want!
