Under Spiritual Law, if you want help you must ask for it.
The Law of Request teaches us to ask when our souls are ready, with clarity and intention. It is our personal responsibility to ask for the things we need in our lives.
With the Law of Request, we are NOT to impose ourselves upon others. If you push yourself upon someone who hasn’t asked for your help you help you prevent them from sorting out their own situation for themselves, hindering their own learning process. Also, when you force your help or advice on to someone, you bear the karma if it goes wrong.
It is considered bad manners to rush in uninvited and most likely your help will be ignored or unappreciated. Of course, if someone is drowning you help! You guide the blind and comfort the sick and bereaved. However, if you feel upset by the mess someone has got themselves into, it is your stuff. It is an indication that you need to look at yourself rather than rescue someone else.
If you are involved in a difficult situation at work or in your career, the experience and learning you gain from dealing with the problem and overcoming it may be the perfect stepping stone you need to move you on in your career. It teaches you new skills and prepares you for promotion. You wouldn’t appreciate it if someone leaped in and took over without asking permission as that would be interfering and it would block you from being ready for a better job.
In the spiritual realms, no angel, Spirit Guide or Higher Being is able to interfere with your life choices. Instead, they will stand by with patience and compassion and watch you making a mess of your situation if that is what you need for your spiritual growth. They will though, save you from serious accident if that is not your karma or designated life experience, and even death if it is not your time or right Exit Point. Not only is it spiritual bad manners for them to interfere but it also stops you from learning your life lessons from the experience.
There are times when it is appropriate to ask for help from your Spirit Guides and angels. As soon as you are ready to ask for help, you are ready to receive it. You are ready to accept the wisdom that goes with it. Then the higher powers will align themselves to help you.’ The answer most often lies in the question and the more clarity you have in your question, the fuller the help you will receive.
Some people are constantly crying out, ‘When, what, how, why?’ They want to know the answer to one question after another. But these are demands rather than questions. They come from a place of desperation and neediness, rather than a centered open place. The person who is steadfastly walking the spiritual path goes within to find answers. As soon as you are ready to know something, the ‘teacher’ will appear to provide it. This may be in the form of a book, a person, a television program or a magazine article.
‘The Universe is waiting to help you .... all you have to do is ask.’
