Be Specific With Your Affirmations and PrayersI have learned over the years to pay attention to my affirmations that are in my prayers, thoughts, and sometimes spoken out loud to myself or others. I have listened to and followed the teachings of Abraham-Hicks off and on for the last 10+ years. This collective of spiritual teachers called Abraham lead us through lessons about the Law of Attraction; words equal action. You create with your own thoughts.
A little background to my story... well, I am frustrated with the educational system not only in this country, but also in the state I reside. We are not proudly standing at 48th in the nation for financial support of our school children; the future we are raising, and the salary of the educators. How sad and pathetic is that? I understand some states must be at the bottom, but unfortunately, we are at the bottom by 1000's of dollars difference in our education spending.
Anyway, in my frustration with working a job that does not pay well and struggling on a weekly basis paying bills, putting food on the table, and at the same time trying to afford to send one daughter to college, I sent up some prayers and affirmations on my way to work one morning. Forgetting in the moment that I can co-create with my affirmations, I just blurted out to God and my angelic guides, clouded by my frustrations of having no money once again and blinded by tears, "I just want a million dollars!" That was it, it was released to the Universe.
You can see where this is going. Halfway through my morning with my students, I sat at my teacher desk for a moment and one of my boys handed me something. He was curious if I would like to keep the item he was giving me. It was a fake one million dollar bill! I laughed and laughed and laughed.
I did ask for that, didn't I?
So, when praying, creating affirmations, or meditating be clear with your thoughts. If you are asking the Universe for anything, make sure it is worded exactly how you would like to receive it. We often just throw up our wishes and desires, but forget that the Universe hears every word and tries hard to deliver.
Have you done anything similar? I would love to hear about it.
