In a certain aspect of my life, until a couple of months ago, yes, I had been putting off actually asking for something. I'd always think, "I wish I could have that, but...I'm not ready for it. There's so much other stuff I need to do before I can have it blah blah blah..."
Then finally I just laid my intention out, with a tracer, which I got in less than 24 hours.
Now I'm in the "calm before the storm" period (between alpha and beta reflections).
At some point you just have to figure out what the hell it is you want, and tell the universe that.
Go for it!
