Seneca quote luck

To be Ready to Receive you need to be Prepared

Your energy and consciousness has to match your vision before you can receive.

A lot of people say they are ready to receive their dream job or career, the love of their life, or new friends, or wealth and abundance, but being “ready” is not enough.

You have to be ‘prepared’.

Feeling all excited and woo-hoo-ing inside thinking “yeah, I’m ready! Bring it on, Universe!” is not enough in order to receive and attract that which you desire and dream about.

Although that kind of self-talk is very powerful and important, it’s not enough to ‘want’ something.

The question you have to ask yourself if you’re still ‘waiting’ for something in your life is this:

“Have I made myself ready to receive? Am I prepared to receive what I say I want?”


past tense: prepared; past participle: prepared
make (something) ready for use or consideration.
“prepare a brief summary of the article”
synonyms: make ready, get ready, put together, draw up, produce, arrange, develop, assemble, construct, compose, edit, devise, work out, think up, conceive, formulate, concoct, fashion, work up, lay
“I want you to prepare a plan of action for me”
make (someone) ready or able to do or deal with something.
“schools should prepare children for life”
synonyms: get ready, make preparations, arrange things, make provision, get everything set, take the necessary steps, do the necessary, lay the groundwork, do the spadework, gear oneself up, gird up one’s loins, fit oneself out, kit oneself out, rig oneself out, provide, arm oneself;

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” ― Seneca

Anybody can ‘be ready’ (=’feel’ ready) but very few are actually prepared.

If they were given what they said they want they would not know what to do with it and they would lose it very quickly, or they would somehow sabotage for themselves and fall back into their old and most dominant state of consciousness again very quickly as well.

There absolutely has to be an inner transformation before an outer change can happen, it’s not possible to ‘hold’ what you’re not yet ready to hold and have.

You can’t have a great, loving relationship with someone until you have a great, loving relationship with yourself first.

Financial abundance and prosperity can’t come to you until you have worked though your limiting beliefs and scarcity mindset and are no longer “needing it”.

You can’t receive for as long as you’re in a ‘needy’ state of consciousness.

We grow into things, and we simply can’t receive until we’re ready, and you’re not gonna be ready until you’ve done the groundwork and prepared yourself for that which is greater than what you are currently experiencing.

When you let go of neediness (of love, money, etc), that’s when it comes to you.

Your energy and consciousness attracts and draws it to you, along with all kinds of opportunities (that naysayers around you say is pure ‘luck’), because you have PREPARED yourself to receive them.

So if you’re still waiting for something to manifest in your life, then you need to focus on making yourself ready to receive that which you dream of having.

You won’t get it until you have prepared yourself for it.

(And Life is always helping you with that. Listen to your intuition, what are you called/guided to do next?)

An inner transformation is necessary before the outer manifestations can happen.

When you change your inner world (energy and consciousness), your external world, circumstances and situations also change, and they change in perfect harmony and alignment with your inner shifts.

That’s when things will start to shift for you and come into alignment with the new, upgraded version of you that you’ve become.

         Master your mind and energy so that you can live your best life.

  • Get rid of stress, fear and anxiety and overcome self-doubt and limiting beliefs that are holding you back in life.
  • Connect with your life's purpose/live more meaningfully and discover what you are truly capable of mentally and spiritually.
  • Rewire your mind and energy and get in alignment with the flow of Life to live a full, rich, and fulfilling existence.

Learn how to use your mind and energy to alter and modify your life as you please and achieve whatever results you want in life.
