Don’t Hogtie the Universe

It's getting on abundance cheque time again. The new moon is on the 17th, and that's the day before Chinese New Year.
Last month's post on abundance cheques raised a question (thanks Talia) about asking for a specific amount. If you do ask for specific amount, should it be the same amount every month?
The short answer is: Yes.
Ask for what you want until you get it.
The long answer is a bit different.
Don’t hogtie the Universe.
I prefer to leave the amount open. This lets our heavenly helpers give even more to us. If we are to live in abundance, as I believe we are, then we have no business putting a limit on what we receive.

If you must ask for a specific amount, then leave room at the end of your request for more.
Dr. Doreen Virtue, (http://www.angeltherapy.com/) in her book Angel Medicine, wrote about what to do if you’re not clear about what to ask for. She suggests picturing the best possible outcome for meeting your needs, then adding, “This, or something better, God” at the end of the request.

This is easily adapted for monetary requests. Use this or similar wording to let the Universe know that you are ready and willing to receive all the plenty that's due, not just the teeny bit you need at the moment. And it lets our heavenly helpers know that we understand that we deserve to live in abundance and that the bounty of the Universe is for us, too.
It’s the method I use when I ask and it’s very effective. I always get more than I need.
Are you being greedy when you do this?
No. You are acknowledging your worthiness.

If you’re more comfortable dealing with specifics, then go ahead and detail exactly how much you want. And take it further. Detail the amount, when you need it, why you need it, and what you’ll be using it for.
This method is set out by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer in their books Creating Money, Keys To Abundance and Spiritual Growth, Being Your Higher Self.
Those methods work, too. Find out your style for petitioning the Universe and go with it. But remember this, no matter which method you use, always be careful what you ask for.

A last bit about abundance cheques.
If you don’t have a chequebook, or don’t want to use your own cheques, then make one. Get a piece of paper and a pen, or fire up the drawing program on your computer, and put in all the appropriate lines you'd find on a regular cheque.
Fill out the cheque or its facsimilie like this:

Date: Leave Blank
Pay To The Order Of: Your Full Name Here
Write "Paid In Full" in the box following the name space.
Next line: Write "Paid In Full" ------------------xx/100 Dollars
Memo: "Thank You"
Signature: "The Law Of Abundance"
Write your cheque within 24 hours of the new moon. Check http://skytonight.com/ for new moon times in your area.
Put the cheque away and forget about it.
Happy Abundance, everyone!
