I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION - TO ASK
Welcome to Day 21 of the I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION series on self-love.
Today, I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION TO ASK. I give myself permission to ask for what I need, for what I want and for what I know I deserve.
"YOU GET IN LIFE WHAT YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO ASK FOR" - Oprah Winfrey
"EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS OUT THERE WAITING FOR YOU TO ASK" - Jack Canfield
"ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU"
So, if it's just that easy, why don't we all have what we want?
The simple answer is, we don't all ask.
Asking for what we want can be a scary thing to do. What if we ask and we don't receive? What if we are met with rejection or ridicule?
Or what if we do get everything we say we want; the success, the fame, the fortune, the recognition, the ______...And in getting what we say we want, we lose other things like safety, friendship, community.
Getting what we say we want can be just as daunting as the NOT getting. So, instead of asking, we choose to stay safe in our smallness. But staying small does not serve you. Staying small means that what you have to offer to the world is smaller than it could be. Smaller than it should be. You deserve to have a big, happy life so that you can share your gifts with those you love most.
Take a deep breath in. Breathe in as slowly as you are able, counting as you breathe. Now, just as slowly, try to match that count as you breathe out. Pay attention to your breathing and notice your body soften and relax as you do so. Repeat today's mantra: I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION TO ASK. I GIVE MYSELF PERMISSION TO ASK. My mind is clear and my thoughts are focused. I am open to receiving all good things in my life. I ask for what I need with confidence and with grace. I am grateful for all that I have. I am worthy of all that I want.
Asking is the bridge that carries us from wishing to receiving. Today, allow yourself to step into your worth. Know what you need. Get clear about what you want. Ask for what you deserve. Live an OM SO HAPPY LIFE.
