Working with the Universe

“The Universe is change, our life is what are thoughts make it.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
Have you ever been working hard to find the answer to an important question and randomly stumbled upon the answer when you least expected it?
Have you ever been knee-deep in the struggle to follow your dreams, felt like quitting, and then received the small boost you needed to continue on the journey?
If this has happened to you, you’re not alone.
Millions of people all over the world have discovered they can ask the universe for what they want and receive the help they need through the principles of The Law of Attraction.
The good news is you can too. Here are some thoughts on how you can team up with the Universe, from an article by the Abundance Project.
You can Shape Your Life if you Have a Vision
If you’re like me and you have a vision of what you want your life to look like, it’s only natural to ask the universe to help you find the life you seek. That’s what the Law of Attraction and the Law of Deliberate Creation are all about.
The universe is perfectly capable of delivering abundance, success and happiness to your very doorstep, but to get to that point requires consistent effort on your part.
Those who pursue their dreams as if their lives depend on it are usually the people who receive the help they need along the way. Commitment and practice gets you to where you want to go.
Some call it random luck, but others believe it’s the universe doing its part to help an individual succeed.
That person may receive money from a stranger when they need to pay their mortgage, they may stumble upon an inspirational quote that helps them get through a challenging day, or they may get an invitation to a party when they need the boost of social interaction.
These people are not simply lucky, but they have learned they are powerful beyond measure.
They’ve also learned that if they truly desire something the universe can grant it to them if they put in the initial effort. Not only can the universe reward them with what they ask for, but they will also receive help in other ways, like the ways mentioned above.
This principle applies to you; this principle applies to me; this principle applies to everyone living in our world.
How do I Prepare to Ask the Universe for What I Want?
To truly gain access to all that the universe has to offer, you need to understand what it is you truly want out of life. If you have no idea what you want your life to be, how will you know when you’ve received what it is you’re seeking?
When you ask the universe for something, you are activating The Law of Attraction, and The Law of Attraction requires strong mental focus to work effectively.
If you’re having a difficult time pinpointing what you want your life to be, try reflecting deeply on your most significant life experiences.
Ask yourself questions like: What natural preferences have come about because of my life experiences?
What would I consider my greatest achievement up until this point?
Is there anyone in my life that I want to emulate, because I feel they embody the definition of success and abundance?
Once you outline your goals, your dreams and your aspirations, you need to make a plan for yourself.
The plan should cover everything that you are going to do to make great things happen in your life.
The other part should include everything you’re going to ask the universe for. Keep in mind that one part of the plan will not work without the other part. You need do to work and ask to achieve your dreams.
How Thoughts and Actions Work Together
Following the path to your dreams of abundance is simple in nature, but it also requires great mental strength.
Though you’ve planned out what you will do and what you will ask for, negative thoughts will undoubtedly come your way eventually, as they do to all of us.
However, your newly achieved manifestation of your life goals and dreams comes with an evolved perspective on negative thinking.
The harder you work and the more you ask the universe to help you become what you are meant to become, the greater power you’ll have against criticism and negative thinking.
Your desire to achieve your dreams will grow with time and you’ll remain aligned with the positive thoughts that you know will help you reach those dreams.
As you achieve the goals and dreams you’ve outlined, you’ll begin to think of new goals and dreams you want to reach, and your ability to reach those new levels will be heightened because of your past experience.
Don’t be afraid to ask the universe for what you want, and don’t be afraid to do the work once you know what you want out of life.
There are great things waiting for you down the road. All you need to do is ask and be prepared to put in the time.
The Universe is Totally Abundant.
