I have three answers to your question: 1) Ask One Time 2) It
Depends 3) As Long as It Takes
It's not as cut-and-dry as you were hoping for, is it?!?
The Universe doesn't work on a time-line. It works on an
Therefore, there is not a simple answer to your question
because all of the answers above are correct depending on
your consciousness, your awareness, your vibrational
offering and your physical preparedness.
This is why the question is so often answered with the quiet
assertion of 'you will know when you know.'
Let's address the three answers individually.
"Ask and it is given." - Abraham, with Jerry and Esther
Heed this wisdom.
In essence, if you continue asking, then you don't really
believe; and as long as you don't believe, you cannot
Therefore, you want to only ask one time in order to
exercise your faith and believe more fully.
Then, pay attention. Notice whether or not you've actually
let it go in complete clarity and satiated faith.
I find there are times when pondering the fact that I only
need to ask one time allows me to discern my level of faith,
belief, and commitment to trusting in the Divine.
For example, when my goal is a more general one, I find it
easy to ask once and let it go.
For example: "Thank you God for a nutritious meal."
you Universe, I have had an incredibly harmonious and
"I am so grateful to now feel inspired to
follow my passions; to live life fully and exuberantly; to
pick myself up easily when necessary and to trust that all
desire is now mine."
"I am so grateful that my income far
exceeds all of my wants, needs, and desires."
Now, what happens when you say:
"Thank you, Universe! I am so grateful to now have a net
worth in excess of 60 million dollars."
Do you feel the difference in attachment when we go from
'general' to 'specific'?
You will want to keep a discerning eye on your level of
faith and use this method to remind you that you only HAVE
to ask ONCE.
Still there are other times when the answer is: It Depends.
There are times I ask more than once for the sake of
remembering and inspiring Divine Right action.
For example, one of my goals is simply to be a conscious
parent. This is one of the top 6 goals for life that I
write down every day. Today, this is what I wrote in my
"I intend to be a conscious parent. I am grateful to now be
raising children from a place of loving connection to the
Divine that fills me with patience, compassion, respect,
flexibility and the perfect amount of courage and inspired
direction. I trust that I am spiritually inspired to act
according to a higher order of life inspiring my children to
be conscious, self-regulating, happy co-creators, fully
connected to their life purpose and living in alignment with
their own Divine unlimitedness."
Would I really be able to act according to my highest level
of congruency if I just said it once?
I don't think so. I write this goal (and my other top 5
goals for life) down every day.
When I write it down, the Universe automatically supports my
desire. And, when I hear it, I am reminded of my
intentions. By remembering that I have 6 goals that all of
my other goals should fall in line with, I am inspired to
act according to these intentions. This supports me in
having a value-driven life and acting on a daily basis
according to my highest intentions.
Now, let's examine: As Long As It Takes!
There's another reason to ask for what you want more than
once: for the sake of clarity, refinement, and course
The truth is there will be times when we aren't capable of
believing with pure belief nor are we capable of obtaining
the physical preparedness with just one request.
The fact is that just because I only asked once, doesn't
mean I'm fully engaged in my goal from a mental and physical
After all, will the Universe provide an Olympic Gold medal
just because I asked once?
And, what if I ask for 'a successful business'; do I simply
ask for a successful business then sit around waiting for my
request to be delivered?
When your vision is supported by a pure-vibration and your
mental, physical, and emotional bodies are prepared for the
materialization, your desire will manifest.
Therefore, you want to continue visualizing, asking and
acting, monitoring your results and then course correcting
as long as it takes. This could be just a few seconds for
some goals and a lifetime for others.
If you are truly honest with yourself and listen to your
intuition, you know when you are attached or detached; you
know when you are absolutely certain of your belief; you
know when you can let it go because you trust in the Divine
Order to bring about your desire in perfect timing; and you
know when you have prepared your life physically to receive.
Cast a wide net of dreams. Launch desires of your
ultimate life that include both large and small visions of
an extraordinary existence. Then, follow your guidance to a
place of certainty and physical preparedness.
