“I’ve read books on manifesting, created affirmations, and even started meditation, but I’m still struggling to manifest the life I want. Am I doing it wrong? How do I ask the Universe for what I want?”
This was a message I received from one of my coaching clients.
Despite all her efforts, she still couldn’t manifest what she wanted in life.
And since you’re reading this article, you’re probably experiencing the same problem. Today we solve that.
In this post, we’ll discuss a 13-step process that you can use to ask the universe for anything you want. We’ll also discuss some techniques that you can use to manifest what you want in life.
Let’s get right into it.
What Does It Mean to Ask the Universe for Something?
When you ask the universe for something, you are essentially sending out a message to the cosmos, God, or Higher Power. This message can be in the form of thoughts, feelings, words, or actions.
The key is to ask for what you want with intention and belief. When you do this, you send a clear signal to the Universe about what you desire.
In return, the universe responds by aligning circumstances and events in your life to help you manifest what you want.
Now that we know what it means to ask the universe for something, let’s discuss the steps you need to take to do it effectively.
The 13 Best Steps to Ask the Universe for Something
#1. Develop a Positive Relationship With the Law of Attraction
The first step to asking the universe for something is to develop a positive relationship with the law of attraction. This means understanding how the law of attraction works and believing that it can work for you.
If you don’t believe that the law of attraction is real or can’t work for you, it will be challenging to ask the universe for what you want.
You need to believe that what you ask for is possible and that the universe can provide it to you. Only then will your manifestation efforts be effective.
One way is to start with small acts of manifestation. Ask for something that you know is possible and watch as the universe responds. This will help build your faith and confidence in the law of attraction.
Another way to develop a positive relationship with the law of attraction is to learn as much about it as possible. Read books, listen to podcasts, and watch videos on the law of attraction. The more you understand how it works, the easier it will be to believe in it.
#2. Make Sure It’s Something You Really Want
This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how often people ask for things they don’t really want.
They might ask for a new job because they’re unhappy with their current one. But if they don’t know what they want in a new job, they’re likely to end up just as unhappy.
Or they might ask for a new relationship because they’re lonely. But if they remain unsure of what they want in a relationship, they’ll likely end up in the same unhealthy and unsatisfying relationships they’ve always had.
So, before you ask the universe for something, make sure it’s something you really want. What do you want in a new job? In a relationship? In your life? Get specific and ask for what you really want.
The more specific you are about what you want, the easier it will be for the universe to provide it to you.
#3. Ask the Universe for What You Want
The third step to asking the universe for something is actually to ask for it. This seems like another no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people never actually ask the universe for what they want.
They might think about what they want or even visualize it, but they never take the final step and ask for it.
Asking the universe for what you want is as simple as stating your intention aloud or in writing. For example, you might say, “I intend to find a new job that I love.” Or “I intend to attract a loving and healthy relationship.”
You can also ask through prayer.
Just ask for what you want in whatever way feels comfortable for you. The key is to be clear and concise about what you want when you ask.
If it’s money, be specific about the exact amount you want. If it’s a specific person you want to be oin a relationship with, ask for someone with their exact characteristics.
The universe answers only if it knows exactly what you want. So, ask for what you wish for with intention and belief, and the universe will respond.
#4. Match The Energy of Your Desire
Now that you’ve already asked, you’ll need to develop positive energy. This means that you need to raise your energy levels to match the vibration of what you’re asking for.
But how do you do this?
You can start by feeling gratitude for what you already have. Be thankful for your current job, even if it’s not your dream job. Be grateful for your current relationship, even if it’s not perfect.
You can also raise your energy levels by practicing visualization. See yourself already in possession of what you desire. Visualize yourself with the perfect job or in the ideal relationship.
And finally, you can raise your energy levels through meditation, affirmations, journaling, and scripting.

#5. Get Rid of Negative Thoughts and Limiting Beliefs
You’ll also need to get rid of negative thoughts and beliefs. This is because negative thoughts and beliefs will block your desires from manifesting.
To get rid of negative thoughts, you can start by identifying them. What are some of the limiting beliefs you have about manifestation or the law of attraction?
Once you’ve identified your negative thoughts, you can then work on refuting them. Ask yourself what the evidence is for and against each negative thought.
You can also work on changing your beliefs by practicing positive affirmations. And finally, you can get rid of negative thoughts and beliefs by releasing them to the universe. You can do this through prayer or meditation.
By getting rid of your negative thoughts and beliefs, you’ll be able to manifest your desires more easily.
#6. Take Intentional Action
Faith without action is dead.
For the universe to answer your request, you’ll have to put in some effort. You can’t just ask for what you want and then sit back and wait for it to happen.
You need to take intentional action towards your goals. This might mean researching the company you want to work for or reaching out to contacts that can help you get a foot in the door.
It might also mean going on dates if you’re looking for a relationship or working on self-improvement to be of value to a particular person. .
The key is to take action that is in alignment with your goals. The more aligned your actions are with your goals, the easier it will be for the universe to help you achieve them.
Also, make sure to be consistent with your efforts. Don’t start acting towards your goals and then give up after a week.
The universe will respond to your request, but only if you’re willing to work. Remember, the universe only helps those who help themselves.
#7. Trust That the Universe Knows Best
The seventh step to asking the universe for something is to trust that the universe knows best. This doesn’t mean that you should give up on your dreams or stop acting towards them.
It simply means that you need to let go of the need to control every outcome. Trust that whatever happens will happen for a reason.
This can be difficult for most people since we often want to control the outcome because we’re afraid of what might happen if we don’t.
But the truth is, you can’t control everything. And trying to do so will only stress you out and prevent you from enjoying the present moment.
So let go of the need to control and trust that the universe knows best and has your back.
#8. It Doesn’t Hurt to Remind the Universe
The eighth step to asking the universe for something is to remind it of your desires. This doesn’t mean that you should constantly ask or nag the universe.
But it does mean that you should periodically remind the universe of what you want. You can do this by meditating on your goals, writing them down, or even just thinking about them.
The key is to keep your desires at the forefront of your conscious mind to take action towards them when opportunities arise.
Reminding the universe of what you want will also help keep your subconscious mind vibration high and attract more of what you want into your life.
#9. Let Go of The Attachment to The Outcome
The ninth step to asking the universe for something is to let go of the attachment to the outcome. This means that you need to be okay with whatever happens, even if it’s not what you exactly want.
This can be a difficult step since we often have a lot of attachment to the outcomes of our goals. We want things to happen a certain way, but we can’t control everything.
You will be much happier and less stressed if you can let go of the attachment to the outcome. Rather than focusing on the outcome, enjoy the journey and know that you’ll be okay no matter what.
By letting go of the attachment to the outcome, you open yourself up to limitless possibilities.
You never know what might happen when you let go and trust the universe.
So let go of your attachment to the outcome and see what happens.
#10. Be Patient
The tenth step to asking the universe for something is to be patient. This doesn’t mean that you should give up on your dreams or stop acting towards them.
It simply means that you need to trust the process and have faith that everything will work out.
Things might not happen as quickly as you want them to, but trust that the universe is working behind the scenes to help you achieve your goals.
So be patient and trust that everything will work out in the end.
The universe always has a plan, even if we can’t see it. Remember, good things come to those who wait.
#11. Be Flexible
The eleventh step to asking the universe for something is to be flexible. This means that you need to be open to change and adapt as needed.
You might have a certain idea of what you want, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. And that’s okay.
Be flexible and open to change, and you’ll find that the universe will start to work in your favor.
You never know what might happen when you let go and trust the universe. So, be flexible and see what happens.
Who knows, you might just get something even better than you could have ever imagined.
#12. Watch Out for Signs From the Universe
While doing all the above, watch out for signs from the universe. The universe will often send you signs to let you know that you’re on the right path.
These signs can come in the form of synchronicities or events that seem to be too coincidental to be just a coincidence.
Pay attention to the things happening around you and see if there is any meaning behind them.
As universe works, it’ll always try to communicate with you, so pay attention to the signs.
#13. Be Thankful
Finally, make sure to be thankful for what you. The universe is always giving us things, even if we don’t realize it.
So, take a moment to be thankful for your present circumstances. Be grateful for the air you breathe, the food you eat, and the roof over your head.
Be thankful for your health, your family, and your friends. Be grateful for everything that you have been given.
The more thankful you are, the more the universe will give you.
So, make sure to show your appreciation for all the good and watch as your life gets better.
Bonus Step: Seek A Professional’s Help
You could also seek professional help to help you ask the universe for something.
To some people, a professional might be a psychic or religious leader. To some, it might be a life coach, who’ll help them learn and implement all the above steps.
Whichever professional you choose, make sure to have faith and put in the necessary work to make your dreams come true.
Techniques You Can Use to Ask the Universe for Something
Create A Vision Board
A vision board is a powerful tool that you can use for asking the universe for something. It’s a visual representation of your dreams and goals.
Creating a vision board is simple. All you need is a piece of poster board and some magazines. Cut out pictures representing your goals and paste them onto the poster board.
For example, if you want a new car, cut out a picture of the vehicle and paste it onto the board.
You can also write down your goals and put them on the board. The more specific you are, the better.
When you look at your vision board, it will remind you of what you want and help you stay focused on your goals.
Scripting is another powerful tool to ask the universe for something. It’s a form of creative visualization.
With scripting, you write down what you want in present tense..
For example, if you want a new car, you would write: “I am so grateful that I now have the car of my dreams. I love my new car, and it’s exactly what I wanted. Thank you, universe, for giving me this gift.”
Writing down what you want as if it has already happened will help to manifest your desires into reality.
Use the 369 Method
The 369 method is a great way to stay focused on your goals, and it can help you manifest your desires into reality.
In most cases, you use this technique together with a journal. To perform the 369 method, you’ll need to write your goals three times in the morning, six times at noon, and nine times in the evening.
Affirmations are a great way to keep your unconscious mind focused on your goals. They are positive statements that you say to yourself daily.
For example, if you want a new job, you would say, “I am worthy of a great job that I love.” When you say affirmations, it will help change your mindset and believe that what you want is possible.
