You were taught you should ask to receive. This is perfectly true. And there is an even better way to receive. This is being thankful for life, and for what you already received. This is a very simple distinction, but it makes a powerful difference in your ability to receive.
Because life always gives you more of what you feel thankful for. When you acknowledge that you’re happy with something, you’re expressing your ability to receive, and you receive more. When you complain because you lack something, you simply express your ability to lack and that is what you manifest in your life.
Yes, I know it’s simplistic, but it works. It works for millions of people, why not you? Are you defying the basic laws of the universe?
If it makes sense for you, or if it makes no sense at all, but you want to prove that you can defy the laws of the universe, this is the way to improve your ability to receive:
Every day, take 5 minutes or any time you want and say thank you for what you have. Say thank you for your house, your car, your wife, your children, the good weather anything that you can honestly and sincerely be grateful for. You can do that anywhere, anytime but say it loud.
The more you practice it, the quicker you will acquire this new habit and see amazing things happening in your life.
