Life is Good to You- All You Have to do is Ask!

Asking for help or speaking our needs can be a challenge for many of us. Before we can do this, we have to feel comfortable with being vulnerable enough to vocalize our need for support. It’s when we open ourselves up to support that we find that we receive exactly what we need. True strength is in our ability to get vulnerable and simply ask. When we think about asking for help, we typically think about asking friends, family or perhaps coworkers. Have you ever thought about asking LIFE for what you need/want? Louise L. Hay says, “As I say yes to life, life says yes to me!” I agree with Louise. The Universe will always rise up to meet you to give you exactly what you need.

There is likely a part of you that is resistant to trusting fully in this. So, let me break it down further. There is a difference between attaching to the way that your need/desire is satisfied, and focusing your intention on the energy that you’d like to manifest in your life. For example, rather that attaching to winning the lottery, focus your intention on creating more financial abundance in your life. Through this, you connect to the way that you will FEEL when this blessing comes into your life. Through releasing any attachment to the way it happens, we open ourselves up to the limitless possibilities for how our need/desire will manifest. What you decree will be, which means that energy follows intention. The practice of asking life for what you desire is just as much about trust in this process as it is about vulnerability.

“As I say yes to life, life says yes to me!” -Louise L. Hay

My yoga practice recently has been focused on mantra and connecting words to breath and breath to body/mind. I inhale what I want to draw in/what I need more of in my life, and I exhale what I can clear out to make more space for what I’m calling in. I feel the way the energy of the words shift the vibration in my body. Earlier this week I was feeling like I was on a bit of a roller coaster, so my mantra was (Inhale) I AM grounded, (Exhale) I AM FREE FROM uncertainty. Placing the “I AM” before the words helps me own the words as a part of me.

I invite you to give yourself permission to ask life for what you need/desire. You may be surprised by what you receive!

Mindful Exploration:
Sit comfortably and deepen your breath. Follow your breath as it flows in and out of the body. Ask yourself, what do I need right now (in body/life)? And what can I release to create more space for my intention to flow in? Connect to the energy that you would like to invite in, rather that the way you want it to happen (ask for financial abundance vs. asking to win the lottery). Inhale, I AM…; exhale, I AM FREE FROM…

I AM financially abundant; I AM FREE FROM financial worry
I AM grounded; I AM FREE FROM uncertainty
I AM compassionate; I AM FREE FROM criticism
I AM joyful; I AM FREE FROM heaviness
I AM at peace; I AM FREE FROM chaos
