We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
Greetings to you! Happy New Year’s Eve darlings. It’s wonderful to be able to connect with you here like this. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you so much for reading my updates and emails as well, its most appreciated.
As I read over the quote above a great deal of thoughts welled up in me. I was reading while munching on dinner asking myself to review how well I have been using the Law of Attraction to gain what I want in my life. I have to admit that I wrote more than I knew I would about the lessons that came up regarding the quote.
But that’s not all-Then I channeled the next day’s daily reading (which happens to be The New Years Day reading year in review outlook on tomorrow). Here’s the article first though, I promise its not too long!
Begin the New Year with An Abundance Vision In Mind.
What We Receive is based upon what we expect.
One of the most important steps in consciously using the Law of Attraction is learning to flex our expectations. Why? Because the Universe delivers exactly what we expect to see. Our expectations are formed on the foundation of our existing beliefs.
If we believe ourselves to be lacking financially, we will expect to see a bigger proportion of bills than income – and the always universe delivers what we expect. If we hold on to the idea that we are going to get sick, or become overweight or weak, and even if we expect to feel pain and fatigue – that’s right you guessed it, the universe delivers that too! If we believe ourselves to be unworthy of love, we expect not to be loved – then guess what, the universe delivers that exception for certain its just a matter of when.
If you can think back to the experiences you’ve had in your past to recall if you got what you were expecting, what you were thinking, you may notice a pattern. Have you ever noticed this taking place in your life?
Here are some of the statements which become actualized in the person’s life once they hold on to the expectation of these statements:
- I just can’t get ahead!
- I’m so sick of struggling.
- Everything always goes wrong for me.
- Things will never change! Nobody likes me.
- I’m always fussing.
- I just can’t sleep.
- I can’t do this.
- If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.
- This is too good to be true, something’s going to go wrong.
Words like these are actually self-fulfilling prophecies. You are, in effect, placing your order with the universe at the moment you begin feeling the feelings behind the words (yes, even before you SPEAK the words!). It’s the energy behind the thoughts and words which is key here. The universe doesn’t care what words you use, it pays attention to your vibrations – the energetic signal you’re sending out. That signal is formed by your beliefs and expectations. Everything you think then say has your personal cosmic signature on it too. So the universe knows where to send the effects of what you expect at all times.
So how do we change our expectations? Furthermore, is it even possible?
Actually is really is! Yes! Absolutely!
Let me tell you, one of the most powerful things you can begin doing is consciously expecting the best from all situations. Throughout the course of your day, take a few moments to pause to expect something wonderful. Say to yourself, “Today is going to be a great day!” Use all your might to find a positive expectation in every experience. For instance: Even if your boss asks to speak with you privately, rather than expecting him to reprimand or fire you, expect him to praise you and give you a pay raise! Another example is that you can expect money to come instead of bills! So, rather than expecting to see bills in your mailbox when you get home, expect to see a check, how’s that for a new way to think? Some people are already doing this but for others, this is a game a changer!
I can’t stress enough that it matters how much you feel good. The more you can keep this feeling of happy expectation in your heart, the more often you will see results that directly mirror your expectations, this is the truth!
Now, does it sound real or do-able to you? Far-fetched? Well, do this little experiment:
Before leaving your home one morning, say to yourself, “Sometime today I will see the image of a bumblebee, a blue lexus (or any image you choose – it should be something you wouldn’t ordinarily see during your daily activities). I choose to attract this image into my awareness, and it will jump out at me so I don’t miss it. I KNOW I will see this bumblebee, and that will prove to me that my expectations DO affect my experiences.” As you speak these words, infuse them with power and conviction! Believe with all of your heart that you will indeed attract the image you choose to yourself. Then let go of it and continue with your day like usual.
If you don’t see the image you’ve chosen, you know you didn’t put enough power and trust into your expectation!
The first time I worked this experiment, it didn’t work for me. Looking back, I’m aware that I didn’t really BELIEVE I would see a bumblebee. I hoped I would, but I was so doubtful. Still, I decided to try again the next day. That’s when I really energized my expectation with unshakable faith and conviction. I was DETERMINED to see a bee sometime during my day, and I wouldn’t accept any other outcome. Boy did I get what I asked for! All that day off and on, I saw bumblebees in some way wherever I went. Bumblebee logos on passing trucks, references to bees mentioned on the radio, a cashier wearing a bumblebee pin when I did some shopping, and my husband watching a television special on bees when I got home, yes it’s so deep!
You’ll be amazed this year if you haven’t done this at how much power, how much influence you DO have. Once you begin to see that you can influence your experiences even in small ways, imagine the sense of empowerment you’ll feel when you decide to expect something better in the bigger aspects of your life. Give it a whirl, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! This is such neat stuff.
