I was talking to a student today, and we got to talking about telling the universe what we want. But more importantly is what you realistically can ask for, and receive.

We all have hopes and dreams, and we put them out to the universe in many ways. Some do it through prayer, others meditation, others the continual transmission of energy. No matter the method, the result is the same. Each creates energy at a high level of vibration and sends this out to the universe. As long as the energy continues to support this desire, eventually the vibration will slow down until it manifests itself into our reality.

This can work on many levels for any things. For instance if you want a new car, and you can keep up the energy transmission for that desire, some method will manifest itself so you can get one. Now it doesn’t happen overnight, and if you let that transmission waver, well you’ve lost it completely. You have to be continuously putting energy into the thought and not letting negative thoughts enter into it.

But material things are not the only desires you can send out. You might want a better life, a new job, a better outlook. And verbalizing in energy puts you on that path to manifesting these desires. But there are a few things you might need to know.

When you put these desires out to the universe, you need to do it with your whole heart and soul and it needs to be of a positive nature. And you can not wish something that forces your will on someone else. For instance, you would not wish that “Bob stops being a jerk.” Bob has free will, and the universe will not change that. But things could happen around Bob that he might see the light and start behaving better. Of course since the universe seems to answer requests in strange ways, the result could be that you change and Bob stops seeming like such a jerk.

You also would not want to wish that “Darlene would fall in love with me.” That goes against that free will thing again. But you can ask for the right person to come along. And that might not happen right away. After all, “Darlene” may not truly be the right person for you.

If you desire to be a better person, or to improve yourself, opportunities might start making themselves known. For instance, you might start noticing classes that could help (and it could be something you have been seeing for a while, but just now noticing). Maybe some time starts to free up so you can meditate, or do something creative. You might not even recognize these opportunities as answers from the universe, but you will still take advantage of them, and eventually, you will become what you want to be.

Ask the universe. Send you true desires out there, and keep sending them. The answers will come.
