Ask for Miracles and Receive Them

In their bimonthly Miracle Group gatherings, Naples residents Carisa Jones and Sylvia Lehmann regularly experience the joy of sharing each other’s empowering creation stories. The reason for the meetings is to focus on the good in every moment and experience the power of intentional asking. Jones and Lehmann recently collaborated on writing and editing Ask and You Shall Receive under the pen name Receive Joy to help readers understand the importance of using positive gracious words to create. “We all are the co-authors and co-creators of our lives,” says Jones.  

“After 30 years of studying the power of the quantum world, the power of the human mind, and their combined ability to tap into collective consciousness, I knew that it was time to share on a larger scale how to utilize divine power. With our light and easy nine-step method, everyone can call on the full, ever-expanding, powerful, perfect abundance of God’s divine delivery system. As with gravity, whether we believe it exists or we lack the belief in this universal principle, it constantly works. With every thought we think, we attract, and with every word we speak, we create,” says Jones, “This is why every word we speak or write counts.”

“The human mind is a magnetic force drawing toward it everything we focus on, consciously or subconsciously, positive or negative, of good intention or the lack thereof. Every vibration that radiates out of us in the form of thought, word or deed is a form of asking, and by the law of the universe, comes back answered. This magnetic attraction is our creation power. Let us be conscious about what we ask for in every moment,” advises Receive Joy.

“We are creators, inviters and attractors of all things in our lives. Every good that goes out of us comes right back, as does everything else. Let us choose to radiate what is good, kind, blessed, loving, encouraging and uplifting,” notes Receive Joy.

“Let us connect to the power of the universe, organize our thoughts by writing them down, set clear intentions, ask and be open to receive with gratitude. Coming together in a positive group of likeminded people enhances our asking and creates amazing results. Have faith in the power of intentional asking. Ask, the universe always answers,” enthuses Receive Joy.
