That is so true, its what blocks me so much in this process. For at times it just flows out and results happen, but then wonder, are we meant to ask
for us at all! Easier to ask for another than self.
Why would it be easier to ask for another than yourself?
Were you one of these people programmed to constantly self-sacrifice? That's not a healthy thing in my book.
Don't you believe you deserve the good in life?
The problem with asking for others is that it can be invasive.
Unless you know that person well, and know what that person really wants. Asking for someone else can turn into a form of domination.
Or it can interfere with something the person has to go thru.
Maybe the person is ready to leave this incarnation, etc.
If you're going to ask for another, the request should be qualified "If this be the best for this soul and harm none."
But I believe we're supposed to be balanced, and abundance to flow through to others is a happy thought and this world is far to sad and torturous
and suffering, as if its a virtue, when its just being a ritual sacrifice to the mismanagers and archons.
So if one was working on themselves and giving more then havin intentions to not give this to the archons to manifest, but To Love and Goodness only,
and for the good of all, abundance and happiness for all, wonder if that is a freeing thought.
We all have the power to bless. So we shouldn't be afraid to ask for general good fortune ("abundance & happiness") for others.
What I would caution against is ritualizing the request for others (especially when you don't know the person well and the request isn't really
about what's good for the other person, but is about serving your own desires).
As an example, let's say you want your boyfriend to move closer to you. There's nothing wrong with lightly wishing that your boyfriend move closer
But when you ritualize the wish, you start doing specific things (writing the request down repeatedly, creating a sigil, chanting an affirmation
daily, using visualization & lucid dreaming, etc.) to FORCE a particular outcome that involves someone else, I'm not comfortable with that. That's
domination, or forcing someone to do your will. Not good.
Don't get me wrong. I have no qualms about using rituals for oneself, as long as the end doesn't force something on someone else.
I prayed about this a few years ago, worried maybe we're not supposed to even try this, and saw a woman angel in my minds eye, then saw an image of
baby birds being fed by their mother. And I was asked, do you want to be fed always or do you want to grow up (implication, and help us).
If I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying that if you have, you also have the power to give.
That's right. If you've developed your power to get what you need, you have also developed your power to help others.
