There are a few things that you need to know about the presence of Spirit in our lives. Unless we are destined to win the lottery, it will never happen. You would not believe how many people ask for that. Instead of asking for lottery winnings, ask for the money you need to run your business or for you to do your work for Spirit. They will not give you more than you need until you have learned your lessons.
For instance, although I was doing well financially after Maitreya’s presence in my life, it was not until I had passed my graduation by doing what I did at the UN in New York that I was given the money to open my first big center as well as the people I needed to help me run it. You have to give them something first before they will give to you. You cannot expect to have it handed to you on a plate immediately. In my case I had to show them that I would work morning, noon, and night, and even travel in the middle of the night if need be. I had to let go of an enormous amount of fear and show them that I was ready to do it their way, not mine.
You also need to know to ask for what you need, the word need being the correct word, not want. Usually by the time Spirit gives you what you have always wanted, you no longer want it the way you needed it. In my case again, I had wanted money and esteem to, basically, show people that I was worthy, because I never felt worthy. But when I did get what I always wanted, it meant nothing to me because the need for esteem had left me long before I got the money.
So in closing, do know that, if you work with Spirit, they are always with you. Never doubt it, and also note that they are so grateful for what you are doing for them. Just do not expect too much in the beginning!
