Ask and Ye Shall Receive with Ease

Ask and ye shall receive. I have heard it all of my life. You probably have too. What does it mean to you? More importantly do you believe it?

I have been a fan of prayer for as long as I can remember. It wasn't necessarily something I grew up doing but when I did, I found the greatest blessings there. There was something in me that believed there was someone up there listening. In my darkest times, when I left all that I believed, I still prayed.

This is my way of getting the information I need, or want. I ask. I ask before I write and I ask for all of my business tasks. I ask about my family and other things.

We live in a world where it is often taught that things need to be hard and a struggle. This is not truth. It can be easy and gentle. As I have increased in my belief that I will be answered I have had so many amazing experiences.

I wanted to know what belief was causing me struggle. I asked for it to be shown me in gentle ways. Within 24 hours, I had multiple people say to me, “You are being codependent.” The first time I heard it my response was, “No, this isn't codependency. Sure I've been codependent but this problem isn't.” When I heard it again and again from different people I began to see that indeed it was.

I asked and I received with ease.

Recently, I had a pretty stressful situation going on. I wasn't able to let go of some things. It was driving me crazy. I had already cleared them, I was sure of it. Yet, the same things were showing up. I again asked to be shown in gentle and easy ways. I felt inspired to post a question to a group of friends on Facebook. From that question, someone messaged me in private and he had the answer I needed. It was easy and gentle.

I asked and I received with ease.

Sometimes the information comes straight into my conscious awareness, pure knowledge flowing in. Some call this a divine download. Other times he uses others to speak to me. Sometimes it's in a book.

Just before I wrote this, I was chatting with the Lord about whether I was neglecting my children when it comes to homeschool. I was asking for understanding of what each child needs. I asked to be taught about their love languages, their learning styles and more.

As I thought about my little girl after praying, I heard, “Teach her curiosity. Teacher her to say, “Oo how can I learn this?” or “Oo how can I do this?” The “Oo” part needs to be juicy and excited. How wonderful to teach her “How can I?” at such a young age. The possibilities are endless and when you ask and you are open to receive.

I ask and I receive. I pray and listen. I was guided to open my scriptures. I opened to a story that addressed neglect and more importantly a story where someone perceived neglect when in reality the king was not neglecting but rather busy fighting his own battles. I saw so many answers for me in this and feel peace about things with my family.  Sometimes the answer is just a reassurance that things are and will be okay.

I mentioned "How can I?" This is one of the two most powerful things I ask for. When I am in prayer and I say, “How can I?” I get the most amazing answers. Even when I am just going about my life and throughout the day, that question is powerful and I find what I need. I ask; I receive with ease.

The other things I ask is for teachings to be taught to me about whatever I want assistance or knowledge about. Sometimes teachings about my false beliefs. Sometimes teachings bout a subject. Sometimes teachings about a person. It's all there. It is taught to me, but sometimes I can't hear because of what is going on, so He sends others to break through the barrier to my understanding.

It is a beautiful thing. I dare you to try it. Ask. Ask, "How can I?" Ask for understanding. Ask, "What's another way?" Ask and you too shall receive with ease.

In love and light,
