Be Specific With Your Affirmations and Prayers

I have learned over the years to pay attention to my affirmations that are in my prayers, thoughts, and sometimes spoken out loud to myself or others.  I have listened to and followed the teachings of Abraham-Hicks off and on for the last 10+ years.  This collective of spiritual teachers called Abraham lead us through lessons about the Law of Attraction; words equal action.  You create with your own thoughts.

A little background to my story… well, I am frustrated with the educational system not only in this country, but also in the state I reside.  We are not proudly standing at 48th in the nation for financial support of our school children; the future we are raising, and the salary of the educators.  How sad and pathetic is that?  I understand some states must be at the bottom, but unfortunately, we are at the bottom by 1000’s of dollars difference in our education spending.

Anyway, in my frustration with working a job that does not pay well and struggling on a weekly basis paying bills, putting food on the table, and at the same time trying to afford to send one daughter to college, I sent up some prayers and affirmations on my way to work one morning.  Forgetting in the moment that I can co-create with my affirmations, I just blurted out to God and my angelic guides, clouded by my frustrations of having no money once again and blinded by tears, “I just want a million dollars!”  That was it, it was released to the Universe.

You can see where this is going.  Halfway through my morning with my students, I sat at my teacher desk for a moment and one of my boys handed me something.  He was curious if I would like to keep the item he was giving me.  It was a fake one million dollar bill!  I laughed and laughed and laughed.

I did ask for that, didn’t I?

So, when praying, creating affirmations, or meditating be clear with your thoughts.  If you are asking the Universe for anything, make sure it is worded exactly how you would like to receive it.  We often just throw up our wishes and desires, but forget that the Universe hears every word and tries hard to deliver.

Have you done anything similar?  I would love to hear about it.

  1. Nice explanation on affirmations, the way we think definitely impact our quality of life and it is all about becoming more aware of what we are telling ourselves so we can consciously change for the better of our health and others. I enjoyed this and it was a good read thankyou for the helpful information

  2. I and can admit that it is very true. What we say will come to pass. So it’s best to put your energy and efforts into asking or putting positive Ives in the atmosphere so it will boomerang back to you. I will be sure to share this article with my friends on Twitter. Keep up the good work.

  3. I love your story! That is a perfect example of being specific when it comes to putting your thoughts/wants out there to the Universe. I like the idea of being very clear, because this can also help you understand exactly what you need or want. For many people, they just say, I need money! But what they maybe mean is that they need a better way of making money, or more dedication to a current job. Nice article 🙂

  4. Haha, that is really a cool story with the 1 Million Dollars 🙂

    You’re right, it is funny how this works… but when you really try to “connect” with the universe; you can receive what you ask of it. I think the key it to believe it with you heart.

    Often I wish for things, and talk about how I want certain things… but I am only wanting it with my words. I have realized now, that I need to want it with my heart! I need to desire it! And I need to give my desires the passion they require to become reality…. The universe is always looking over us, and it has the power to help us; if only we trust in it! 🙂

    1. Yes, Mei Scarlet! Even with how connected I feel with the Universe, it always amazes me when these synchronicities show up in my life.  Trust is a huge key to the Universe delivering your affirmations.

  5. Hi Kerri thanks for the post!

    I really liked what you said about affirmation. And I can completely understand where you’re coming from in regards to not having money you need to pay for the things you want to.

    It just so happens that I’ve written a review of one the best books ever written on the subject of getting rich. It is 100% based on the principle of affirmation and was written in the early 1900s. It’s called Think and Grow Rich and I’m not sure whether you’ve heard of it?

    Hope it helps out like it’s help me and the millions of others that it has also helped in the time since it was written.

    All the best,


    1. Yes, thank you, I have heard of the book and read it. I do believe we have the power to create a reality of our own choosing. Positive vibes increases positive actions.
