I used to be afraid of telling God/the Universe/Source what I wanted because I didn’t want to be demanding.
When I prayed, I made sure to beg, to plead, and to ask as if I had no power over this prayer.
Then one day, I read “Outwitting the Devil” by Napoleon Hill. In that book, the “devil” (symbolized negative thought, mediocrity, or “average joe” thinking) said that the Universe or God doesn’t respond to begging. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Begging shows that you have no faith in your own power as a co-creator WITH God/the Universe. You were created to create, and you have every right to demand what it is that you want. In fact, because you have control over your reality, you must be in control of how you’re asking for things. It is those who demand who are taken seriously and responded to quickly.
Remember, you are the BOSS of your own destiny. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That day, I changed the way I asked for things. I started to declare my desires. I expected them to show up in my reality. I told the Universe EXACTLY what I needed (also trusting that he/she/it would give it to me in perfect divine timing). I demanded high standards and expected nothing less.
And in turn, my entire life shifted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I didn’t get what I want, I made sure to be even clearer. Still declaring, still demanding, and still strong in my conviction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This isn’t to be confused with entitlement, greed, or lack of gratitude. Declaring for what you want doesn’t mean you’re an asshole and don’t appreciate what you have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It means that you know on a deep soul level, that you were built for manifesting your dreams. And the Universe is your cosmic ordering service. It WANTS to give you everything you want and it always wants to know just how serious you are about asking for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
So get fucking serious. Declare your life exactly as you want it to be, and it will be. Stop begging, and start declaring 🙌🏼 P.S. (an example) BEGGING: “please, please, please, I want it to happen. I hope it happens. Where is it??”
DECLARING: “thank you for _______. I’m so excited and grateful to receive _______. I expect nothing but the best & so it is.
