Is There a Correct Way to Ask the Universe for Something?

No. You can wish for anything you desire and the universe will listen. The universe is connected to your life through cosmic energy. It is already aware of what is going on in your life. It knows your dreams, wishes, fears, and feelings.

The answer is that there is no only one right way to connect to higher power.

You need to remove your limiting beliefs and negative energy to realize your desires. This easy-to-follow 5-step guidance helps you take supportive action to do just that.

Step 1 – Be Sure, Be Precise

The first step to right path is to be 100% sure about what you want and why.

Most people say things like that they want to be “rich”, “a new job”, or to “manifest a boyfriend“. This can be too vague. It’s like asking for food but not saying what kind.

To make our wishes clear to the Universe, we need to be specific about what we want. This way, what we get is more likely to match our desires.

Step 2 – Have a Clear intent

I know exactly what I desire. How do we make sure that the request reaches the universe? How do we manifest things?

The process of connecting with the universe is simple. In reality, you need to take intentional action and make it happen.

What Does It Mean to Ask the Universe for Something?

Thinking about your wish is enough. You could also say it out loud. Or write it down on a post-it note… or do the Manifestation Macarena.

Why Is Manifestation so Popular?

Writing the wish down may be a good idea. This is because keeping the desire at the top of your mind can help you realize it.

If you forget about it, the universe may sense that the importance of the wish is not that important to you.

Okay, we have shot the request to the stars. Then what?

Get on with your day. Seriously.

It helps to keep the request at the top of your mind but don’t get obsessed with it. Obsessing will fill your mind with negative and whimsical thoughts, which can confuse the universe about the importance of the manifest.


Is the Universe Listening?

Don’t worry, the universe is always listening. You as a person and the universe are connected through cosmic energy.

If you take intentional action to manifest, the request will reach the intended recipient. Have faith and magic will happen.

Trust That The Universe Knows Best

We don’t always know what’s the best for us. While we may wish for a new job, this may not be the thing that is best for us. Maybe there are better opportunities available down the line.

The universe knows you better than you do. It’s aware of the opportunities that lie ahead. Trust that it will do the the thing that’s right for you.

Be Patient and Trust in the Universe’s Plan

Depending on what you expect to receive, it may take a day or two or year for your wish to realize. Getting frustrated or angry serves no other purpose than undermining your request by filling your mind with negative thoughts.

Practice Spiritual Surrender

Having hard time going with the flow and trusting that the universe takes the right path? Try practicing spiritual surrender.

  1. Try to forget what you think you need

  2. Have gratitude for what you already have in life

  3. Remember that obstacles are only detours

  4. Surrender to your faith and believe that the universe acts in your best interest

  5. Remember to enjoy the journey

Repeating this process daily will give you comfort and relief.

Look Out For Signs

Remember how in previous step we were talking not to be obsessed. It’s the same with watching for signs.

Do not overthink or look for guidance from the universe in every corner. The signs will come to you and not the other way around.

What to do When you Receive a Clear Sign

When you do get a sign from the universe, have belief in yourself.

Do not underestimate yourself and take action. The universe is grateful when people make most of the opportunities they are given.

In case you were offered a dream job.. do not wait until someone else grabs it. Have faith in yourself that you are worthy of it and start acting. The universe will support you in your life.

Don’t Try to Control the Signs the Universe Sends

Asking the universe is all about letting good things happen to you, in allowing the universe be the fairy dust that makes your dreams come true. Trying to control the universe prevents the magic from happening.

Your personal growth depends on whether you will let go of the reins and allow the universe to give you what you deserve.

Keeping the wish clear in your mind helps you connect better with the universe. Repeating your wishes and desires every now and then will strengthen them further. This increases your chances of getting a positive response.

Ask the universe once and then ask the universe again. Reminding yourself and the universe about the things that you want helps you become more comfortable with your dreams. Like you already have it.
