I recently discussed how to get answers from the Universe. However, I know that speaking to the Universe in this way might be something that's quite new to people. You might be used to prayer itself, but how often have you prayed, and never actually gotten answers?
Yet, if you learn how to really communicate with the Universe, you can get answers in a matter of hours, or days at the most. I've tried it myself, with near 100% success, and I've taught this method to clients, who have also had success using it.
It just requires a bit of a shift in paradigm. But, once you take on the new perspective, then the Universe will feel closer than your best friend. You'll have the confidence that you can put forth any request, and receive the response in a very short amount of time.
What Is a Request?
First, what exactly do I mean by a request?
Well, I'm leaving it purposely vague, because it could mean literally anything.
A request is anything you send out to the Universe, hoping to get some response. A manifestation is a request, because you're putting your intention out there, and desiring a response from the Universe.
But it goes so much further than just physical manifestations.
Just yesterday, we were at a wedding reception. I was getting tired and wanted to get home, but because Christine and I are both visually impaired, we had to rely on someone else to take us home. I put out the request, and within a few minutes, we easily found someone who was about to leave and was willing to take us.
Christine was surprised at my confidence, as I told her we'd be leaving soon. But, I know from experience that all requests are answered.
Sometimes I don't know what post to write next for the blog, so I will put a request out there, and get a great idea within a day or so, or sometimes almost instantly.
Quite often, I will desire clarity on some point of the law of attraction. So, I will simply ask. Within a couple of days, I'll just happen to read an article that will answer my question. Other times, a thought will simply occur to me that fits into place perfectly.
My favorite thing to do is to ask for a good dinner option. Sometimes I can't think of anything that sounds good. So I'll think, “I intend to find the best dinner option for me.” And, before it's time for dinner, I'll think of something I hadn't previously considered.
A client of mine, to whom I had taught the technique you'll learn in this post, asked the Universe to show her whether to take on a certain task or not. She expected to be paid for it, but also had to spend a small amount of money to get the resources she'd need to carry it out.
She reported to me later that she had a dream that very night, where she was buying what she needed for the project. She took that as her sign, and went forward with it.
There's honestly no limit to this. Any question is a suitable request. The Universe doesn't have limited time or resources.
All Requests Are Answered
I think that through the practice of prayer, we've gotten used to the idea that the Universe may or may not answer.
However, this couldn't be further from the truth. In my experience, the Universe always answers, often in the most unexpected of ways.
So the first thing to look at is, are you expecting the answer? Or, are you simply asking with the vague hope that an answer might come sooner or later?
I've been reading the book, Happiness is Free: And It's Easier Than You Think, by Hale Dwoskin, and in the book there was this great quote from Lester Levenson:
It takes more than faith. It takes knowledge. You start with faith, but you must convert it to knowledge. You must test it out, and then you know it. (Session 3)
You must have faith that the answer will come. In time and experience, you will have knowledge, and that knowledge will enable you to get your answers even faster.
But for now, be open to the idea that all requests are answered. The Universe is not personal, able to reject some particular request for being beneath its notice. Nothing is too small or insignificant for the Universe.
I consider it our birthright. We are intimately connected with the Universe, but too many of us don't take advantage of this connection to truly live life to the fullest. It's like having access to a powerful supercomputer 24 hours a day, but only ever using it to browse the web. It could do so much more.
And similarly, you could do so much more with the resources available to you. Are you living life disconnected from your universal connection? Are you making all your decisions on the surface, without consulting the Universe to see the best path ahead? Are you stumbling into life as one blind, or are you creating your life moment-by-moment, by choosing what intentions you put out there?
The Universal Search Engine
I think a good analogy is a search engine.
When you type something into Google, you don't wonder whether your search query is worth Google's time. That'd be silly, because Google has thousands of servers all dedicated to finding the best results matching your query. That's literally what Google was designed to do. No matter what you search for, it's going to put forth the same effort to bring you back the results you're looking for.
Actually, maybe not all people realize this. 🙂
When you search Google, you expect to get an answer every time. You don't hope you'll get an answer, or wonder when it will come. You type your query, hit “Search”, and wait for the results.
And you realize that if the results aren't quite what you wanted, it's not Google's fault. It doesn't mean it doesn't want to answer you. It simply means that you didn't enter the proper search criteria.
Seeing the Universe in this way can help to demystify the process a bit. It's not complicated, or even esoteric, in the least. It should be a normal part of everyday life.
Yet, if you went back just a few decades, people would think you were crazy if you said you could find anything in just a few seconds of searching. It just wasn't part of reality at that time.
So, if you have any disbelief about this whatsoever, consider it in the same way. This Universal search engine hasn't been part of your reality yet. But, just as there are technological advances, so there can be spiritual advances. In truth, the search engine has been waiting for you to use it, so all you need to do is to enter your query and send it out.
How to Search
Now, how do you actually use the Universal search engine?
Well, if you're at all familiar with my writing, you're likely not going to be very surprised by the process. It's really no different than my usual manifestation process. But, in my opinion, it is faster, because we run into very little resistance with most requests.
Just as Google brings you back results that match your search query, so the Universe will bring you back results that match your vibration.
And this is where things get a bit tricky. Usually when people ask a question of God, they deeply feel the lack of their answer. And truthfully, this is why most prayers aren't answered. When you hold the question state, you cannot receive the answer, because it exists at a different vibrational level than the question.
Really, the Universal search engine is always at work, bringing you the best results that match the vibration you hold. If you hold “lack of money”, it happily brings results that match “lack of money”.
Look around at your life, and see what kind of search queries you've been sending out there.
Perhaps you want to change some of them? That is okay. Having awareness of your unintentional intentions, as it were, is the first step to changing them.
Are You in the Answer State?
What you must realize is that there are two general states, when it comes to these requests:
- The question state
- The answer state
This is like the difference between wanting and having that I've discussed previously.
When you are in the question state, you can only get more of that question. You are not in a place to receive the answer.
Only if you are in the answer state can you possibly receive an answer.
So, if you've been asking your question, entering your search query as it were, and not getting an answer, the only reason could possibly be that you're simply not in the answer state.
Let's take a very simple request. Remember that this applies for any request or manifestation. Let's say you are looking for a job, and have two possible openings. So you ask, “Should I take job A or job B?”
Now, notice that immediately when you ask this question, you feel the lack of the answer. You are aware that you don't know the answer yet.
This is the question state. As long as you remain in the question state, you can only ever notice the lack of the answer.
To get your answer, you must immediately switch to the answer state.
How do you do this? Simply by feeling what it would feel like to have the answer.
Remember the Universe operates largely by emotions. So, even though you don't know the answer yet, you know the feeling of having that answer.
Simply ask your question, then enter the answer state for a few seconds. Even just 5 or 10 seconds of the pure state of having the answer will be sufficient.
Then, let it go.
Every time you think of it again, just switch back to the answer state. Never allow yourself to worry about it or obsess about it, as this just brings you into the question state again. To the best of your ability, just remain in the answer state whenever this topic arises.
However, when you do it in this very general way, without trying to visualize the answer, but just feeling the having of it, most resistance is circumvented pretty easily.
Receiving the Answer
Then, just wait for it to come. Don't think about it obsessively, but just allow the Universal search engine to bring back the results of your search in its own time.
It won't take long, if you were able to enter the answer state purely, without resistance. I've never had a request take longer than a few days.
Just remain effortlessly open to the answer, and it will come.
It will generally come in a way that you can't miss. It may be an intuitive feeling that is unmistakable. It may come through a conversation you have with someone else. It may come through something you read. Or, circumstances may simply change to make the answer obvious.
Don't question yourself once you do receive the answer. Don't worry about whether this is actually the answer or not. Usually the Universe makes it pretty clear, so there's no doubt about it.
If you do worry, then just enter back into the answer state. Either the current answer will get stronger, in which case you know that it was the right one, or the real answer will arise in a stronger way than what you believed to be the answer.
Just try to let go of any wanting to figure it out, or move this process along. Once you enter the answer state, your part in all this is done. Now it is up to the Universe to answer your request. Let it do its job.
The Possibilities Are Endless
As I've already said, the possibilities are endless. You are now plugged in to the most powerful search engine out there. Before now, you've not realized all the ways you could use it. But now, hopefully you have a better idea of the power of this Universal search engine.
You are not meant to live a disconnected life. The answers to all your questions are out there. The only reason you don't have those answers is that you haven't submitted the right search query yet, and then entered the answer state, in order to receive the proper results.
Try to play around with this technique, much as a child would. Let yourself open to the infinite possibilities offered by such a power.
Then, for any request that comes to mind, just ask your question and enter the answer state.
In the beginning, I recommend only asking one or two questions at a time. Trying to keep it all straight can take a lot of energy, and especially so when you're not quite confident with this technique yet.
But in time, you'll be using it all day, every day.
Here are some of the possible use cases:
- Do you want to have a productive day? Intend a productive day, then enter the answer state.
- Do you want to make a lot of sales at work today? Intend such, then enter the answer state.
- Do you need the money to pay a particular bill? Intend it, and enter the answer state.
- Do you want to know the best action to take towards your goal? Intend it, and enter the answer state.
- Do you want your commute to be easy? Intend it, and enter the answer state.
- Do you want to have fun this weekend, but don't know what to do? Intend it, and enter the answer state.
- Do you want to get better at Chess? (My current intention.) Intend it, and enter the answer state.
You get the point. No matter the area of life, no matter how big or how small the intention, this simple process will work for anything. Try it out for yourself.
