We must be very careful what we tell the Universe. God takes us very literally. Therefore, it is very important that you understand what you are asking for when you tell God that you want something. Let's say you have been sending messages out to the Universe saying "I want to be healthy."

Here's what Conversations with God says about wanting:

"You will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack, and your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience--wanting--in your reality.

The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude.

When you thank God in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect, acknowledge that it is already there...in effect. Thankfulness is thus the most powerful statement to God; an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered.
Therefore never supplicate. Appreciate."

This theory goes back to the principle that everything we need has already been given to us; God knows what you know, and what you know is what appears as your reality. You must know these things, and if you do not know them to be true, please use the affirmations I have sent you (or any other positive affirmation). Say them over and over again until you know them to be true.

You can change your mind.
