Ask The Universe For What You Need: A Purple Kangaroo Moment

Lissa Rankin's picture

The other day, I was hiking with Owning Pink blogger Shana James and we started talking about the purple kangaroo. Say what, you might ask? A purple kangaroo? Let me fill you in first.

A while back, former Editor-in-Pink Joy Mazzola and I were having our weekly meeting, during which we identified what it is we needed and spoke it out loud, serving as witnesses for each other. We try to do this often -- getting clear on exactly what we need and setting the intention that the Universe will meet our needs in a timely fashion, if our need aligns with the Master Plan.

I said, “Owning Pink needs a graphic designer.” And a graphic designer showed up.

I said, “I need someone to sponsor my book tour,” and I got an e-mail about becoming a spokesperson for a company.

I said, “I need Dr. Christiane Northrup to write the foreword for my book.” And @DanielleVieth on Twitter tweeted, “I’ve got to introduce you to Dr. Christiane Northrup. You’re two peas in a pod!”

Joy said over the phone, “Damn, girl. You’re this close to saying something out loud and having it just magically appear right in front of you. Say Purple Kangaroo!”

So I said it. “Purple kangaroo.”

Joy said, “Did it work? Is there a purple kangaroo standing in front of you?”

I said, “No, but there’s a deer staring at me from the other side of my window!”

Joy said, “But he’s eating purple flowers! He’s wearing a purple bow around his neck. He’s got purple eyes. Right?”

I giggled.

I shared this story with Pink Goddess Dana, and she said, “You’re not going to believe what I just got as a gag gift. It’s a calendar of toilets. And guess what September is?”

Yup. You guessed it. September 2010 is a Purple Kangaroo toilet. We named him Sebastian Murphy. (And incidentally, September 2010 is when my book What’s Up Down There comes out. Hmmm….sneaky, Universe!)

What do I need?

So Shana and I were talking about Sebastian Murphy, the Purple Kangaroo, and I asked her to speak out loud what she needed. She told me. And then she returned the question. What do I need? Now that I had a sponsor paying a boatload of money to send me on a 30-college book tour, I need someone who can actually book me to do speaking engagements at 30 colleges. I don’t know how to do this! And my publicist, editor, and agent have no clue how to make this happen. Am I just supposed to start calling colleges? Is anyone even there over the summer? If I get someone, will they just say, “Sure! Here’s a lecture hall - go to it.” Or will they need to send it through committee?

I have no idea, and it’s freaking me out. I’ve promised to get 200 butts in seats at 30 events, and time is running out. I’m supposed to do my first event at the end of September.

So when Shana asked me what I needed from the Universe, I said, “Help booking my college tour.” That was 12:32pm.

When Shana and I got back to my house at 2:00pm after our hike, the phone rang just as I opened the door. It was Owning Pink blogger Lakenda Wallace.

She said, “You’re not going to believe this, but I just spoke to a woman who works for Bacchus Network, a nonprofit that’s all about educating college students about health and safety. They have a network of 900 campuses and would love to try to help you book your college tour.”

My heart was beating fast when I asked, “What time did you speak to her?”

Lakenda said, “12:45pm. Why?”

I just had to laugh. Damn, Universe. You’re getting speedy. It was a classic Purple Kangaroo moment.

What do YOU need?

What about you? What do you need? Have you gotten very clear on how the Universe can serve you? Have you asked for exactly what you need? Have you said it out loud in front of a witness?

Don’t just say “I need money.” Say, “I need $430 so I can go to this retreat that will help me grow my business.” Or say, “I need help paying the rent” or “I need help paying tuition so I can go back to school.” Get ridiculously specific about exactly what you need and how the Universe can help. Then put it out there. Tell people. Employ disciplined action if you need to. Then BELIEVE. Trust. Have faith. Let go. Surrender. Set goals, but release attachment to outcomes. Remember that the Universe knows better than you what will best serve you.

Tell the Universe what you need. Let us be your witnesses! Share what you need in the comments, and let’s all collectively lift up your request, with Sebastian Murphy as our guide. Now sit back, let go, pay attention to signs, and watch the magic happen. Make sure to report back! Did The Universe provide for you?

Trusting the Universe- and YOU,

Lissa

Enjoyment and fun

I feel really funny asking the universe for what I want. I feel greedy and have the wrong attitude.

But I am going to give it a good try. So here goes.
I need to have fun and enjoy my life with myself and others. I need guidance to find a sole mate who is honest, loyal, caring, has a good job, and attitude to life, who can love me unconditionally, who is supportive, and will love my son also. I need colleagues that will respect me and look up to me as a mentor. I need 200000 dollars to pay my debts, and to do up my parents homestead. I need another place to live that is warm, happy, by the sea, and has everything I need to be happy. I need to let go of my doubts so that I can receive all these blessings from the universe.

I am very grateful and thankful to the universe for making this so. With love, peace and light.

Money

I need $100000 nz dollars to pay for my loan, credit card and my masters degree. I need guidance to find my path to my true soul mate. I need friends that are supportive, fun and loyal. I need guidance to look at life from a brighter perspective. I need to get a job at my sons school. I need the strength to lose 3 stones and the energy to do it. I need the strength to give up smoking. I need friends that will spend time with me whenever I need them.

I thank the universe and am very grateful for the gifts I have asked for. Thank so much. With love and gratitude always.

Feeling Big Gratitude!

Dear Universe-

In a metered way, the you are fulfilling everything I asked for. With each thing that happens to get me closer to my goal, what I need from you becomes clearer and clearer.

Today I was contacted by someone at a magazine who is considering featuring me in an upcoming issue. This is the last thing I expected although I think it's starting to make sense why. It is getting me closer to the goal of supporting myself using my own creativity as I tread lightly on the earth.

I've learned so much in the past few weeks about wholesale, retail and what a huge impact tiny acts of kindness truly make!

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings! :)

Thank you, universe!

I feel greedy, but this is a true need

Three years ago my son and I brought a photography studio from our previous employer. We couldn't get a business loan because of the way he kept his books, so we mortgaged my son's house for the down payment. Our previous employer is holding the balance of the mortgage on the building.

Business was good but then the economy crashed and photography was something that wasn't a necessity. Our weddings are down and the high school are getting fewer and fewer. We had several weddings cancel with the brides saying they have a relative or friend with a good digital camera and they are going to take the pictures.

I work for my son and haven't been able to have a paycheck for the past 9 months. (I have a part-time job that helps me pay my bills).

We are struggling to pay the mortgage on my son's house and the mortgage on the business. I am asking the universe for $250,000.00 so we can pay off my son's house and the mortgage on the studio. I have been praying about this and asking the universe, but I could use all the help I can get to send this request out into the universe.

I am a diabetic and have been trying to lose weight, but haven't been very successful so I am also asking the universe for help and strength to change my life style so that I can loose this weight and be healthy for my two grandchildren.

I know I am asking for a lot but I also know you Pinkies can help me.

Blessings to each and every one of you,
Becky

Thank you for you

Just €200, Universe, please

I am thanking the Universe for ensuring that I manifest €200 to buy a new laptop so I can work and manifest more for myself and my children.

I ask this knowing that it is what I deserve, that it will come to me from Infinite Source, and cause harm to no one.

I need a Purple Kangaroo moment

Lissa,

Thanks so much for this site and all the great ideas, creativity prompts, and support you shower to all who read it. I've got a couple of needs myself that I'm declaring to the universe and the posse:

I need a home for this little cat that we rescued from a neglectful home. She's sweet, but I can't keep her.

I need healing for my feet, which have been dealing with psoriatic arthritis for six months. I need my mobility back!!!

I need to finish this essay on bodymind healing that I've procrastinating about for months.

And I need a job. We've both been unemployed since March and we need income now.

As a side note, it does not escape my notice that all of these issues, except for the cat, have been in place for the same amount of time. With that in mind, I have one additional need: I need to understand what these issues have in common and what beliefs I have been carrying around that relate to them.

Purple Kangaroo... I need....

I need a literary agent and publisher for my first book. I need $25K to payoff my student loans. I need the University of Marburg to host my research project in Germany.

FYI My student loans are my only debt. I am proud of that.

I love this project - thank

I love this project - thank you to Lissa for starting it and to Maya for telling me about it.

I am thanking the Universe for ensuring that my current legal negotiations are concluded by the end of October, and that, as a result of which, I will be financially independent for the rest of my life.

I ask this knowing that it is what I deserve, that it will come to me from Infinite Source, and cause harm to no one.

I love how this post has evolved

I love how this post has evolved into a place where we can publicly state our intentions! May everyone's wishes come true!

I am respectfully asking that I continue to grow as an astrologer and get a consistent 2-3 new clients a week. I am respectfully asking that "phase 2" of FemCentral be profitable and valuable for everyone involved, and that I will be able to make a comfortable living through a combo of my online teaching, my chart readings, FemCentral and my writing.

From the infinite source with harm to no one.

Thanks!

Thank you Lissa!

I have to add one more specific request to the Universe and that is for the money, about £1000, to manifest so I can go to Morocco to divorce my (ex)husband, in mid Sept. :)I need to be clear of him to feel clean in my new relationship. Thanks and blessings. Maya

WOW

I finally got back onto Owning Pink after a month or more of moving about and now I have settled with my new love in a big old rambling Victorian Hunting Lodge in Dartmoor, Devon, UK. I am in awe of all the goings on and the Purple Kangaroo story. WOW. I missed the amazing power of Owning Pink and what you have created Lissa and am so happy to be back online and in one place where I can focus on healing and my relationship.
I am about to start studying to be a Master Herbalist and my requests to the Universe are as follows:

I request £5000 to pay for my course in Herbalism and to become a Natural Physician. This would pay for the entire course.

I request 5 creative, fun and interesting clients (preferably artists and healers) for my business, Maya Marketing (website coming soon) who I will help with their social media and marketing needs.

I request that I become healthier than I have ever been and all the niggling health issues I have are healed up over the coming months.

I request that my darling partner, Mark, and I create a gorgeous living space at our new home, Eggworthy House and that we have abundance in money and love.

I request that I get a book contract for my memoir when it is completed and that the completion process goes smoothly over the coming months.

I request that my memoir gets optioned as a movie and that is gets made and is hugely successful and financially lucrative.

That's it for now. Thank you Universe and thank you Lissa and all the wonderful and inspiring Pinkies out there.

Love and blessings,
Maya

Telling the universe what I need.

Dear Universe,

I need two medium sized (100-150 pieces) wholesale orders for my earth friendly frills business to meet it's growth goals by the end of this month, August 2010.

I'm officially putting it out to the universe. I've been working toward this goal all month and will continue to do so with open eyes and an open heart.

Sincerely,

The Benefactory

Thanks, Lissa! Your point is astute: We are strongest when we admit we are weak. We have to declare our needs from and for one another in order to get those needs answered.

Wendy Weinhold's picture

My big-time-meta idea

I would like to finish my PhD this semester and launch a project called "The Benefactory." The idea behind the project is to link women artists, activists and educators with progressive people and companies that could fund our projects.
We all need benefactors. I need to make The Benefactory happen. And I want to do this, too.

Purple Kangaroo follow up

By the way, for anyone reading this post now, here's a bit of follow up. That phone call DID turn into a relationship with the nonprofit Bacchus Network, and they ARE booking our college tour for us! We've got 8 colleges in the works and more to come. Thank you Universe!!!

It does work. Dreams do come true. The Universe DOES listen. And you already have all that you need to have all that you want. Really. I promise.

Lissa Rankin's picture

a new Purple Kangaroo request

Megan and I have decided this deserves an official Sebastian Murphy call to the Universe. So here we go.

It would be a dream come true for both Meg and I to bring to real life the Yoni Summit- a gathering of the great minds and hearts of women's empowerment- Christiane Northrup, Mama Gena, Tama Kieves, Marianne Williamson, Byron Katie, Alice Walker, Caroline Muir, Caroline Myss, Marla Maples, Jory DesJardines- and more.

It will be our first chance to gather the Pinkies (and the audiences of all these other women) together in one place with the intention of healing, love, and growing. As Anne Davin says, "We are all little puddles, but as we evolve, our puddles will coalesce and we will become one great ocean."

May we move forward with the highest intention to bring this dream to reality in San Francisco in Spring 2011. May we (no biggie) help change the world, one woman at a time.

And so it shall be...
Amen.

(I really really want this! Okay- intention set. Outcome surrendered.)

What do you think Pinkies? Can you help us set the intention?

See Meg, the Universe listens!

Of course it doesn't hurt to tell the Universe what you want. But how can we expect to meet our dreams if we don't put them out there. Yeah for you!!!!

Self-Discovery is SO in

Love Love LOVE this!! Thank you Lissa for so sweetly cracking things open!

As for me? I need more people to visit my advice column- www.soapboxtherapy.com, make comments, give me feedback, truly-madly-deeply understand my mission, and reach out and join me!

I need the world to shift just enough to open a juicy space for sexy self-esteem and soapbox therapy to land, get grounded, and change the world.

I need every pinky to throw on your favorite pair of heels, step up on your mindful, humble, and sparkle encrusted soapbox, and love yourselves out-loud for exactly who you are in this moment until it is proclaimed clearly and crisply...Self-discovery is SO in.

I need GQ magazine to come to realize that they NEED the Soapbox Therapy Men's advice column in their magazine monthly, like now.

OH, and I need an amazing graphic designer, a savvy web programmer, a social media guru, and a photographer who is beyond inspired by the combination of red dresses and big brains.

Is that asking too much??

...I didn't think so.

LOVE you pinkies!!

home repair

Had to pop over here and make a request for someone who can do random home repair...for free! My 8yo son is suddenly becoming inadvertently destructive and I don't know how to properly repair anything. Bonus if this home repair person can be bundled into a romantic interest! Ok, a romantic partner who enjoys doing home repair. : D

Wow! Great stuff, Pinkies

Do you feel it? The shift?
I do already. Stacey gifted me with this beautiful grounding e-course and I did the first part of it last night and can SO see how this will benefit me when I"m on the road. Thank you Universe!

And for all the rest of you- I'm lifting you up, hearing your prayers, believing in you, and trusting that the Universe has got it all handled. You don't have to worry about the HOW.

So I have to Share

Last night, when I went home, I had one of those moments. I was holding baby JJ(my new nephew) while everyone else was having dinner. Have you ever noticed how ALL your troubles and anything else that is bothering you just floats away when you can hold a sleeping new born? I did. Everything just floated away and I felt myself being asked.

"Why just ask for something that isn't really all of what you need?"

And I felt it. So here I am again Universe and I humbly am asking for all that I really need.

I am asking for a path in life that will let me afford to live where I want to live and not struggle or live with my inlaws.

I am asking for the help that I need to make this lifestyle change a success

I am asking for the clarity I need as I go through this journey..

Amy's picture

Beautiful

Pinkies,
I feel such support already - you're making things happen. The Universe is shifting and bending to accomodate us. Thank you, and a huge bowing thank you to the Universe.

I want to add my voice here because of what I feel in my body right now.

For me, I want my business to thrive. To do that, I want many more subscribers to my newsletter, so that when the timing is right the right person will see an offering she absolutely NEEDS at that moment.

Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/Mamamorphosis?v=app_4949752878&ref=ts

I also want clients headed my way who are ready to do some deep heart-soothing work. I am so ready to welcome them. Now.

And, I want support in the personal transition I'm making, from married to single; from trapped to free; from small to waaaaaay big.

That's all. :)

Love to you all-
Amy

Carry a piece of hematite with you or wear it as a piece of jewelry. It is used for grounding.

This was a great post and a wonderful reminder to allow myself to step into the natural flow of life.

This is awesome!

Lissa, this is brilliant! I've been asking the Universe for things for a while now, but I haven't been specific. I've been much more general with my request (and private) because if it doesn't happen I wont be disappointed. So now, here on in this comment I'll be specific:

I want a job working as a media buyer for a large agency.
I want to save an extra $100 per month.
I want enough money to go to BlogWorld in October.
I want a partner in life who will love me for all that I am.
I want to travel the world.
I want to meet other Pinkies in Chicago (are you out there?)
I REALLY want a winning lottery ticket. ;) (am I asking too much here?)

Asking away

Clarity said Lissa. That is a great word. As my talks have slowed down because of the economy,(I am a speaker), I have gotten back into composing music. I am becoming clear that this is more and more important to me. Some of this composing ties into my helping people make better choices. One big piece I want to see choreography for is called "A Day In Darfur." The main thing is that I want to work with people using my music and make a living at it. Here is what I am asking. I would like people to listen to it. It really is good. One piece is on my latest post "Something Missing." Also, if you go on you tube and put sctshep in the search box you will see a lot of pieces I have done. (I have slides that I downloaded off of free stock photo websites.) If you go to http://gallery.me.com/sctshep/100034 you can see my DVD "Why Crawl When You Can Soar." I do sell the DVD but you can watch it or parts of it for free. I don't care. Or you can go on my website www.rekindleyourheart.com and go to the Why Crawl page and just listen to the music without the narration.
I really believe in this music. It is really diverse; gospel, rock, blues, classical, ballads and the messages are good too.
When you can- listen and tell people to listen.
Thanks

no reason to feel selfish

What's wrong with expressing desire Caren?
Set goals- release attachment to outcomes.
But without setting goals, how can you achieve them?
There's nothing selfish about setting goals! It's just clarity.
The Universe hears you. As do we. Thank you for sharing. We lift you up!

Asking but feeling selfish.....

I have never been this specific, so here goes.

I want 3 months rent extra in the bank.
I want to lose 30 pounds by September 15th.
I want to have 4 pleasure parties a month for the next 3 months.

I feel greedy asking, so I am having faith in all of you, faith in Lissa, and of course, deep faith in the Universe. It feels selfish. But I do believe, how could I not? How do you refute what has happened for you Lissa? So I don't and I am certain the Universe is hearing me ask for these things.

Great Post

It is late here, and I just read this and all the other replies. It made me realize I just need to start small: I need the space to even think about what I need and want from the universe.

So I am going to ask for space.

Smiles and Gratitude

I am loving this post so so much, thank you Lissa for pointing it out! I am so in awe of Lissa that I don't know where to begin, of her ability to allow the Universe to be born through her and how in tune she is with that, to allow what wants to be born create itself, as she just nurtures her life and others around her to say "yes!". Lissa, I think a blog post about how you felt your way into it would be helpful for your readers so they themselves can navigate their own manifesting path. My bet is you were willing to let go of all resistance to receiving. Yes?

I would LOVE to hold a Purple Kangaroo party for Pinkies and we can hold space for eachother to speak our truth aloud and step into our creations with mojo in tact. What do you say, your place? =)

As far as the wonderful Pinkies in here, I am in awe of all you all too. It is not for the faint of heart to wish for something from a place of "thank you" instead of a place of lack. Thank you will get us so much farther...as if it is already here...

My personal list to the universe?

To feel joy and success and worthy to receive my creations, now, in this moment while I await the divine plan to unfold in its own time. I am ready, God!

Find me an Agent and/or Publisher to take ME on a journey to say "we want YOUR Book, Conscious Conception: Birthing a Better Human, Birthing a Better Future or some thing like that title,

A masterful helper like Joy Mazzola who can take me to the next level, to organize and "manage" me so I am freed up to expand (organization on promoting myself not my strong suit) Someone who sees the vision like I do and says here is a list of potential 2011/2012 speaking engagements, you need to go work on your film now, I will take care of that blog post. Ellen DeGeneres just called and I told her you're on for lunch at noon tomorrow."

I ask for the physical needs to be met: sponsorships, all those interested in the work to show up and be eager to become their best self, money to show up easily for me and my executive producer who is creating a documentary with me, as well as masses of people who wish to see the film once it comes out. Of course conscious conception is a part of this, but it is bigger than me and bigger than CC, and still evolving. I just want to do it justice whatever it will be.

I want to tap into Lissa's vibration in how uninhibited she is with allowing help to show up. As in, the Universe. You put on your seatbelt and sunglasses and let go. I am in awe of this.

I ask for someone who sees the ultimate impact of this work, someone like Wayne Dyer and Oprah and perhaps a celebrity who wants to try it for themselves, who can bring light to this hidden treasure, and they say "you need to be SEEN! I will do what I can to help you and here is a publicist to tell you what to do, you just keep being the visionary, and I will sponsor you. Oh you need a house in Hawaii to finish your book? No problem, take mine for three months!

ha, that felt really good.

What I really want? Is to be the absolute right person worthy of the job. Make me a pure vessel...

in the flow

Jennifer, remember that being "in the flow" is a natural state for us all. It's not some magical thing that happens- although it certainly feels like it. It's all about letting go of the handle, realizing we can't control our lives, and letting the flow happen. It took me 40 years to realize that, but thank God I finally have!

It's there for all of you- that flow. Just drop into it- and float!

And to the rest of you- YES. And so it shall be. We hear you, and we lift you up.

What Amy needs

I'm so glad I saw this posting today, thank you. Now I have a memorable icon (purple kangaroo) to remind me to ask the Universe for what I need!

I need guidance in my daily actions that will lead me to my soul mate. I need $18k to wipe out my debt. I need like minded women to be my friends. I need clarity what path to take to create a fulfilling line of work that will provide me with good income. I need guidance as to where I should move to, if anywhere. I need energy to help me lose the 30+ lbs I need to lose for my well being.

"Purple kangaroo!"

Pinkly Yours,
Amy
