- Florence Scovel Shinn
When we do not appear to get something that we want, instead of dwelling on the loss, or focusing on what you think you should have gotten, or how a situation should have been played out-
replace those thoughts with the knowledge that you will receive what is yours by divine right, for If something is truly yours, than you cannot lose it.
This is one of those situations where there is the caution to be careful what you wish for. If you ask for something very specific, it may not be to your advantage no matter how much you may believe it is. The thing or situation may come with a lot more than you originally bargained for. To receive the “right” thing for you and so that it may be enjoyed and received in the right way under ideal circumstances- ask for your ideal in the following manor:
If this (your wish) is mine, I cannot lose it. If it is not mine, I ask for its equivalent.
