As Above, SEO Below

Ask and ye shall receive.

The more you give, the more you get.

*There’s plenty more where that came from.

You’ve probably heard these sayings, or at least one of them some time or another.  What do they mean?

Sometimes it’s just so hard for us to ask.  Even when we know that people care about us, are willing to help and are probably anxious to give–if we’d only ask for it.

Can’t get anything unless you ask, right?  We can’t expect each other to be mind readers and yet, we are hoping someone will just figure out what we need and pass it along.  It doesn’t work that way, does it?  Everyone is so inside their head that they have no idea what you or I want.  Nor do we know what they want–unless they tell us.  Unless they ask for it. Unless we ask for it.

When you were a little kid, you asked for stuff all the time, right?  It was easier then.  Maybe you parents didn’t always have the money or means for it, but it didn’t stop you from asking, did it? And, if they could, they would try to help you out. It could be you were just asking for the favorite dish your mom cooked, or for your dad to read you your favorite book, sing you your favorite song again.

They were usually more than happy to do it.

Your fans, your tribe, your people, friends, and, yes even family are more than happy to help or to give if you ask them.  But, they can’t read your mind.

You put your intention out into the Universe, hoping that it will be answered. But, is hoping enough?  Danielle LaPorte talks about ‘hope’ almost like it’s a dirty word.

She says…

“Maybe hoping is for sissies. And if that’s true, than intention and faith are for heroes.”

She goes on to say…

• “I hope I’ll get the job.” BZZZZT! Reframe it.
• “I really want to get the job.” (“Point taken,” says the Universe.)
• “I’m praying to get that job.” (Prayer is an action too.)
• “I have done all that I can do to get the job.” (Yes! Stand tall.)
• “I will either get the job, or I won’t.” (Precisely. Now you can get on with your day.)
• “I expect to end up with a job that I love.” (Excellent! Open-ended and affirmative.)

Maybe ‘giving up hope’ isn’t such a bad idea. Turning ‘hope’ into ‘belief’ is even better.  ‘Believing’ that the thing you ask for will come to you creates a whole other vibe, a whole other energy.

You’ve got big ideas.  Really believe in them–as if they’re already there, in the present.  You wonder if everybody asks, will there be enough to go around?  *See Above.

As above, so below.

In accordance with the various levels of reality: physical, emotional, and mental, this relates that what happens on any level happens on every other. This is however more often used in the sense of the microcosm and the macrocosm. The microcosm is oneself, and the macrocosm is the universe. The macrocosm is as the microcosm, and vice versa; within each lies the other, and through understanding one (usually the microcosm) you can understand the other.[42] Wikipedia.

Everything is everything.

Do you think the Universe/God/Dream fairies or whoever are listening to your ‘asks’?  Think about the Universe.  It’s vast.  It’s enormous…it’s bigger than we can even imagine.  Do you think there’s enough out there for you? For me?  I think so.
And then some.

But you gotta ask.

Put your clear intention out there.

If you think about your biggest dreams, desires from the past and then think about how some of those things came true, maybe not immediately, but if it was something you strongly believed it’s probably already happened or is on it’s way.  Not because you hoped but because you asked for it.

Maybe you find it hard to believe in the unseen?  If it was a really big dream for you, you probably saw it in your head, clear as a bell like you could imagine it happening right now and picturing yourself there, with all the sights and sounds to go with it. In the present. Alive and well. Seen.

I am here.

You are there.

Everything is everything.

As deep as the ocean.

High as the sky.

Yeah, just ask.
