Ask and the universe will provide
That is quite true but what we forget is it can go both ways. Somethings find us, others we actively pursue with our mind or physically, that all emanates energy. Life is full of choices and wishes filling our surroundings with energy. Jung would say feeding the collective unconscious. That is why a positive mindset is paramount to your own happiness. For me it became most prominent coming out of my depression, how much power my mind had and how it had taken possession of my surroundings, moulding it. To evoke change and maintain the good vigour I have decided to try to banish bad thoughts and negative people. With negative people come bad thoughts as they set fleas into your ears. My thoughts when healthy never stem from myself they are always evoked by others. Unfortunately, the negative people are harder to avoid as they can be found at work where they cannot be avoided or at the beginning it may not be apparent that they are a negative person and it only manifests itself over time. The worst thing about negative people is that they influence your mindset to your detriment, evoke stress and mostly treat you badly in the process. So if you want to stay healthy and happy then good riddance to bad people or the unhappy, as they will only drag you down. Obviously, I am not suggesting to through really good friends away that are having a hard time but we all have one or two permanent sourpusses in our circle of friends. Who needs them?

Ask but how?
The other thing is the way you ask for things. The purer, the kinder the wish the higher the chances of receiving. The other factor that should be considered is that what you ask for does not necessarily materlise in that moment and sometimes never. It is a request and not a command. The universe owes you nothing. That is why you should always request something humbly and respectfully. Karma and the universe have a balance that will make sure everybody gets their just derserved.
I have had the best things happen to me when I least expected it and I have had some whishes come true. I have seen some being punished with instant karma. It is all there. I have actually made a wish board that is hanging on my door. Some have come true with a twist which is the way life functions. So always be careful what you wish for and how you phrase it, as even the most accurate version still has pitfalls. However, overally I am happy and trust the universe in its own enterity that it will provide me with what I need and it deems best for me, even if it does not always make sense to me.
