Do you pray? Meditate? Ask the universe for signs?

Ask, Believe, Receive

     Do you believe that God, Source intelligence, the universe here’s your thoughts? Do you pray, and are your prayers answered regularly? Do you ever ask the universe for something and get an answer? I talk to the universe everyday and I almost always have a question or request that needs to be addressed. However have you ever asked for something in prayer or meditation, received the answer but missed it, or you didn’t take action when you were given the answer? 

     This morning while going through my morning gratitude and motivational routine, I asked the universe to let me make someone happy today. It’s a request I ask many days, because making someone else smile, makes me smile. Might sound selfish, but why not make two people happy with just one act of kindness. Anyway, I asked, and I believed that an answer would show up because the source always comes through with an answer. Not always the answer you’re looking for, but you will definitely get a response if you’re paying attention. Today I had a simple request, and when the opportunity arrived, I didn’t take action. 

     Here’s what happened; I live near the ocean and on my way to the office I like to drive by the beach and see the sunrise. This morning as I near a crosswalk a couple steps up to the street loaded with chairs and other beach supplies. As I begin to slow down, they hesitate. I then step on the gas and they retreat to the sidewalk. 

     This was my first opportunity to make someone smile and I blew it. I should have stopped and let them cross. Their arms were filled, I was comfortably sitting in my truck and there was no good reason to speed up. As I passed the couple, seeing exasperation on their faces, I realized that this was an answer to my request and I totally messed it up. Ask, believe, receive worked perfectly and then I didn’t take action. Poop! 

    When the universe gives you exactly what you ask for, you should probably gratefully accept the gift, and immediately positively act on it. Once you send out a request to your God, or just to the universe you have to immediately begin looking for clues to the answer, and believe that your request will come true. The universe will always respond to your requests. Maybe not exactly as you intended it to happen, but you will get an answer to your prayer. 

     I assumed I would not have an opportunity to make someone smile until after I got to the office, I wasn’t paying attention, and the answer came as I was daydreaming. Reinforcing the fact that I need to keep my eyes open at all times because the universe has my back, and will always reply. 

     As I  immediately caught my faux pas, I first laughed at my missed opportunity, realizing my request had just been granted and I totally missed it, SORRY! I then apologized for missing the opportunity that I had asked for. I also said thank you for providing me an opportunity to make someone smile, answering my request. I promised to catch it the next time when it comes again, making sure to ask for the experience again. The universe doesn’t know what you want, if you don’t ask. 

     I don’t know exactly what I call it when I talk to source intelligence, or God, or ??. Many people I know would say I’m praying to God. However it’s more of a conversation with the universe for me. I spend a minute or two focusing on my breathing and heart beating, then I just start thinking in a conversational way to something greater than me??? I always begin with gratitude, trying to actually have feelings associated with my thanks. “thank you for my body working for me all night, thank you for the sunshine, thank you for my shower”. I try to spend two minutes at least being thankful for my life and the good day I am going to have. Then if I have a request, and who doesn’t? I gratefully ask for my desire. I have some huge desires that I know won’t happen overnight, and I have some small requests like finding a penny, a feather, or the opportunity to make someone smile. The smaller stuff is almost always answered the same day or within 24 hours. My bigger requests obviously take longer to appear, however when I pay attention, I get clear signs that steps are being taken behind the scenes to bring my dreams to reality. It’s pretty cool when the universe or God responds, and you see your dreams taking shape every day. 

     I know we all have our own beliefs and see spirituality in our own ways. I know that from my life experiences that prayer, meditation with the universe, or talking with source intelligence provides answers to our lives. If you don’t believe or care about spirituality then think about this. Quantum physics is proving that we are all connected by an unknown energy source. Aristotle, Plato, Buhda, Mohammed, Jesus Christ and others have all spoken about thoughts, or prayers, creating things when you believe. So just maybe there is something going on beyond our comprehension. 

     I don’t have all the answers, however I know some crazy things that many of you would call miracles, have happened, and continue to happen in my life. Maybe it’s just some unexplainable synchronicity, however I believe it is something bigger than us. Something we can’t control, yet we can work with. This energy that holds us together will partner with you, and work with you to create your perfectly happy and abundant life.    

     You simply need to keep your eyes and ears open, your heart and mind focused, and the answers you seek will show up in some of the most unexpected ways. Ask, Believe, Receive it works every time. Your job is to ask, and believe an answer will come. Then be patient, open minded, and ready to receive, and act. Then you will see miracles everyday too. ✌️ 💚 😁

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
