A subscriber sent us a most interesting question in response to last week’s newsletter.
If you missed last week, you’ll need to read it if you want to make sense of this week’s newsletter. So if you did miss last week, check it out here before you go any farther.
The subscriber’s question, which I’m sure many others also had, was: “Now, how do we keep from turning the computer off?”
And here’s Spirit’s response.
It must be obvious you will never receive an autoresponder’s message if you ask for answers from it, and then immediately turn off your computer.
You’ve got to leave the computer on if you’re going to receive the response you asked for. And if you do leave it on, you always get what you asked for. Do you hear that? Always! You always get what you ask for.
And the same is true–this is an exact parallel–when you ask the Universe for something. Let’s use a specific example we know many of you can relate to.
Let’s say you’re looking for a SoulMate. You’ve spent many long hours and much energy making your list of qualities you’d like in your perfect mate. You’ve spend countless hours visualizing, praying for, your perfect mate.
You have thereby put your request out to the Universe. And the Universe responds instantly. It begins orchestrating all the details, aligning all the energies, getting all the pivotal people and circumstances lined up. The Universe can manage all that in as short a time as it takes you to read this paragraph.
But then think about what often happens with many of you.
You’ve put out your request. The Universe has responded instantly and perfectly. Then you turn off your computer.
And how do you do that? Well, you can do it in many ways.
You could get emotionally caught up in the relationship challenges someone close to you is having. Let’s say that person is so deeply disillusioned all she has to say is “Relationships suck! I’ll never have another.”
If you buy into that, you’ve turned off your computer.
Let’s say you look at your society’s divorce statistics–pretty daunting, aren’t they?
If you buy into the inevitability of that, you’ve turned off your computer.
Do you get the feel of where we’re going with this?
You’ve put your request out to the Universe. The Universe has answered instantly. Then you shut down your computer. And spend your days wondering why you never get what you want.
To get what you want, you must first ask for it. Most of you have no problem with that–you’ve mastered it well.
But then you must leave your computer turned on. By that we mean you must focus only on what you want. And not on what you don’t want.
If the experiences of others are what you don’t want for yourself, don’t think about them. If you must focus on the experiences of others, think about those who have achieved what you want for yourselves.
Focus only on what you want. It is that simple. And you will always know you are allowing the Universe to deliver to you what you want by the amount of joy you feel.
You will always find joy in doing what’s right for you. And you will always know what’s right for you by the joy it brings you.
