This step is a normal thing to do. But sometimes people don't dare to do it. If you were raised under the image of a negative universe, you may walk around with a constant sense of guilt and fear that the universe is just waiting for a chance to zap you for doing something wrong. This fear is quite intense in some people, so much so that they are afraid to even ask for what they want because the universe might deem them greedy or selfish.
Me and my friend went to a temple with my friend to said a pray. I'm Buddhist actually. We start to praying, he just follow what I did. After we finished, we have a little chat.
He: "When people praying, they just asking for wealthy, healthy and happiness, am I wrong?"
Me: (I stared at him for a moment) "I don't know with other people, but yes, I asked for that.
He: "I couldn't see how people will got what they want just with pray." (he smile cynically)
Looking at him and at the moment I smiled. We change to another topic while we walk to the car park.
“Ask and ye shall receive.” It’s a true enough statement, that’s for sure. In order to get what we want, we have to know what we want. To know what we want, we have to think about it, feel about it, make determinations about it (okay, this is what I want), and then, once we know what we want, we have to focus on it.
This step strongly related with faith. But I have to be honest. Sometimes conscious mind couldn't accept this step easily. If you think it was hard to applied, remember 'Believe to see or see to believe." Let see how Wright Brothers created plane. Did they ever see that thing before? No one ever see flying thing which is created by human on that time. But they believe and created it.
Final step of creative process is to receive. You already ask in the first step. Then you fully believe in the second step and with this last step you are ready to received it. Receive in this case is strongly connected with our feeling. After you ask and believe, all you have to do is to feel good. Surely you have asked a good things to received. Consider you have received it. How do you feel? You must feel very good for it, is that true?
According to the book, you should fill in your desire when you applying this step beside feel good. When you feel as though you have it now, and the feeling is so real that it is like you have it already, you are believing that you have received, and you will receive. Easy to said that this step is more likely a vision. So what is a vision? If something have not yet happen, but you could see and feel it already happened. Thats a vision.
Here is another useful tips to applying this step. You can imagine your life as a fast-moving river. When you are acting to make something happen, feel as if you are going against the river flow. It will feel hard. But when you feel as if you are flowing with the current of the river. It will feel effortless. The current of the river will carry and make you more easily to received what you have been asked and this is the meaning of the Law of attraction.
"Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process."
