Prayer can work wonders for your personal development, health and abundance, whether you are religious or not.
Sending your prayers to the Universe will help you feel centered, connected to your inner self, and attracts more great things into your experience. And the best thing is that it only takes 5 minutes or less of your time.
A prayer can alter your perceptions, and when your perception change, your life will also change for the better.
Though prayer can take as little as five minutes, most of us often try it when we are in a desperate situation or when we desperately need something. But what you may not know is that when you are in the low, when you are in a state of negativity or desperation you shut off the flow of the energy, which is these prayers are never answered.
A prayer to the Universe needs to be a habit. It should be something that you do on a regular basis.
Sending a prayer to the Universe means you are expressing deep gratitude for what you have in your life. And by the Law of Attraction, more and more good things will be sent your way. Energy follows desire, and so if you set your desires into gratitude and thankfulness, more things to be thankful for will come into your life.
The power behind this – whether you think it is God, the Universe, cosmic energy, the source, or whatever, is not important. What you need to know is that asking for something works.
Steps you should take to ensure your prayer to the Universe is answered.
Step #1: Be Precise
If can’t ask the universe for something that you are not 100% sure and expect it to be granted. You can’t, for example, say stuff like, “I want to find love,” or “I want to a car.” You need to be precise about what type of person you want or the model of the car you want. Otherwise, your request is not going to be granted.
Be sure about what you want. What does love mean to you? Are you pining for love between you and your family, romantic love, or someone to settle down with?
Of course, the Universe will answer, there is no doubt about that. But the problem is that you won’t be able to know what the answer looks like.
If you asked for love when you meant a romantic relationship, but the Universe answered with love between you and your family, you will not know if the Universe has answered you, but it did.
Use your feelings to guide you in deciding precisely what it is that you want. If you get a powerful desire exploding within you when you think and visualize your request that is when you know that it is the right request to make.
Until you can say with certainty what you want the Universe to send your way, how will you tell if you received it or not?
Step #2: Ask and let it go
Once you have sent your prayers to the Universe asking for something, you need to let it go and trust that you will get it. Say your prayer and get on with your life. Have this faith as you would buy in a store. Would you doubt if they give you your Ipod when paying for it? Your prayers will be and are already answered.
Step #3: Be Patient
Your prayers will be answered, but not instantly. Things will start to occur gradually. It may take days or even years for you to start benefiting from the prayer. But it will come when you need it the most. Remember you’re not always get in your life what you want, but you get what you need in life.
Step #4: Watch For Signs
After sending your prayers to the universe, the universe will respond. So you need to keep your eyes peeled for the signs, which will manifest in little things in your life.
The signs will come in many different forms, so it is important that you can identify them. Sometimes it will look like a coincidence, but that is your sign.
Step #5: Trust your prayers are in the safe hands
Most people usually overlook the importance of trusting the Universe. The biggest problem of praying to the universe is that you can’t know for sure if the things you are praying for are best for you. But the universe knows what is best for you. So don’t worry about that my friend..
Step #6: Keep Praying
You need to keep praying even after you begin to receive what you prayed for in the beginning. Don’t be that person who just prays whenever they are down in the dumps. Keep sending reminders to the Universe with a little element of impatient thankfulness. It will inrich your daily life also.
Repeating your prayer can also have an effect of reminding you to be on the lookout for the signs and signals of what you have prayed for.
Step #7: Be Thankful
A prayer is incomplete if you don’t appreciate what the universe has already given to you. Be grateful and better things will be added into your life.
Practise this evening Prayer to the Universe
There are different types of evening prayer to the universe, but there are five most common ones. They include:
1) Prayers of Allowing
This type of prayer is one where you let the Universe work things out for you. It allows the divine flow of the Universe to organize things beyond your own powers and capabilities.
An example of a prayer of allowing would go like this: “Dear Universe please let everything work out for the greatest good involving the situation with my [insert your situation i.e. job, marriage, etc.]”
2) Prayers of Gratitude
This is perhaps the most crucial evening prayer to the Universe. After a long day and all the good things that happened to you, you want to show your gratitude by sending the Universe a prayer. The Law of Attraction states that we attract what we give focus, energy, and attention to.
An evening prayer of gratitude to the Universe will be: “Universe thank you for all the good things [love, friends, family, good health, etc.] I have in my life right now.”
3) Prayers of Confirmation
This type of prayer is similar to the first two prayers above; only that it is confirming the good things that you currently have in your life, are worthy of attention.
This prayer can go like: “Universe thank you so much for bringing this and that into my life which has changed this and that in me.”
4) Prayer of Inquiry
One of the most valuable prayers you can send to the Universe, Prayer of Inquiry is when you are seeking some extra guidance from your inner or outer world. You can say this prayer when you feel a little lost or chaotic in your life.
Many people usually fail to say this prayer and end up in more misery.
Prayer of Inquiry can go like this: “Universe please open my eyes so I can discover the best way of dealing with this situation with my [self, family, job, money].”
5) Prayers of Extension
Prayer of extension is all about other people in your life. It is a prayer you say when sending love to others or resolution to others or healing to others in your life or the world.
For example: “Universe please help so and so see the good in his or her current situation.”
Your evening prayer to the Universe shouldn’t be complicated with lots of words. A short prayer that takes about 5 minutes is enough. Remember to make it a habit of sending your prayers to the universe even when you are not having any troubles.
You can say prayers of gratitude or extension, which does not mean that you are in trouble. Evening prayer to the Universe is important as it gives you a chance to reflect on the day and say thank you for the things that happened to you, your family, your friend, or the world.
