Understanding the basic concepts of the Law of Attraction is just the first step in carving a new path in your life. Actually taking the steps necessary to begin to see great changes is another. Every journey truly does begin with one step and with living a life based on the Law of Attraction, that first step is making a request to the Universe.

For many people who are just starting to put together how to use the Law of Attraction, this can seem like a daunting task — one that’s much bigger than asking a friend for helping moving or a sibling to borrow some money. With so many things that we want to improve in our lives, it can also seem impossible to narrow down what your request is to one thing.

It’s important to note that you don’t have to start out with a big request. A request can be as large or as small as you would like it to be. You can start off with something as seemingly minor as “I want to feel happy today.” Of course, when you think about it, this isn’t that minor of a request at all: if you could have this request granted every day of your life, you would wind up living a life filled with joy and happiness.

Our initial request is a strong start, but we can make it even stronger by wording it slightly differently. After all, we know that the Universe responds to not just positive thinking but to the belief that you are destined to receive something. So instead of saying “I want to feel happy today,” why not tell the Universe “I am going to be happy today?” Instead of placing your request as something that you want to happen — which means that you aren’t sure that it can happen — you are telling the Universe that you expect to be happy today because you deserve it.

As you get more comfortable using the Law of Attraction you can get more specific with your requests from the Universe. In fact, you will want to do this as quickly as possible as the Universe reacts better to direct and specific requests. Being as clear as possible allows you to channel your positive energy to exactly the right place — which gives you a better chance of making a connection with your energy.
