I asked my wife Jennifer to give me her take on “asking.”
Here is what she wrote:
Everyday I ask for my highest good. I ask for the highest good for my family and friends, and I ask for the highest good for my extended family and for every human being on Earth today.
Why do I do this? I do this because my intention is to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilled life. It is as simple as that.
Well, I have to get in first thing on waking up and ask for what I really want. I’m a rogue human being. I can get frustrated and anxious as my day unfolds.
I can worry about my children. I can look in the mirror and see an older me, I can become afraid that world violence is escalating and innocent people are being hurt. I can get confused and distraught if I’m not careful.
Now all these rogue states of my mind are pulling me away from what I really want. They are like old computer programs hidden within my system. And they can take over.
Before I know it I’m asking for what I don’t want.
I’ll say to myself – “I’m stupid,” “I’m getting old,” or “I don’t have enough time.” I’ll worry and get anxious and I’ll focus on the negative and this focus is as good as asking for the negative to come into my life.
This is why I have to get in first and ask for what I want – and not allow all those negativities to put their order in ahead of me!
If I don’t ask, then it allows the other darker energies to slip in their requests.
