Five Spiritual Laws That Strengthen Or Shake Faith and Trust, Part 4
The Law of Expectation
(Adapted excerpt from Aligning With Destiny program with co-leader Anita Pathik Law)
“You are perfectly aligned to get the results you get.”~Dr. Stephen Covey
The Law of Expectation works in harmony with The Law of Attraction.
Energy always follows our thoughts.
What you believe, assume, anticipate, expect or even dread or fear, consciously and subconsciously, forms the creative energy towards manifestation, and has a direct impact on the experience you create.
Expectation is an energized thought form that is highly creative in nature and may be in competition with what you want (or think you want) to create in your life.
If you believe and expect something negative to happen, you will manifest a negative outcome.
If you believe and expect good things to happen, you will attract positive experiences.
The core energies of The Law of Expectation are anticipation, faith and fear.
We become so attached to seeing things in certain ways—ways we see ourselves and our life experiences as they relate to our current reality—that we unconsciously limit a new reality from being experienced in our lives.
The trap is becoming so aligned with that story that it becomes your way of being. We inadvertently reinforce our “stories” into permanence and become a “victim” in a reality that we have actively helped to create over and over and over.
Your thoughts and beliefs shape your experiences and expectations.
If your expectation is more aligned with the undesirable, you will continue to create the undesirable.
Let’s say you desire financial prosperity and abundance in your business and life.
If what you expect is not a match to your intention – you will more likely manifest your expectation.
How you view what you attract can positively or negatively influence your faith and trust.
What you really EXPECT is:
- You will have to work extra hard to market and increase sales, which is something you hate doing, and may feel a lack of competence, or confidence
- You’ll be working so hard you won’t have time to have a life
- You will lose your freedom to…
- You will have to make sacrifices that are undesirable
- It will only be temporary and soon you will find yourself in the same mess…. again
- Miracles only happen to other people
- There will always be an ebb and flow, rather than a steady stream
- You can’t really make money doing what you love
- People won’t pay for what you have to offer
Which ones do you relate to?
Which will ultimately win – Desire or Expectation?More often then not, expectation wins. Even if the manifestation of the desire occurs, because the expectation clouds everything you see and experience, odds are you might miss it.
Why? Because it is so different from your picture or expectation of what you wanted or intended.
“You’re always getting a perfect vibrational match to what you predominantly give your attention to. But you’ve got to make the best of it. You’ve got to vibrate slightly different from where you are if you are going to improve where you are. You can’t keep taking score of where your business is or your relationship is, or your body is without continuing to create it as it is. To make improvement, you’ve got to reach for a different thought.” - Abraham-Hicks, Tampa, FL 12/6/03
When focusing on what you wish to create and attract in your life, what expectations do you have?
Working with the Law of Attraction (LOA), remember that your beliefs, thoughts, emotions desires, and attachment to what happens are all connected with your expectations and intentions!
If your desires, intentions and expectations do not match, it’s time to look within and take responsibility for what you are creating as your reality.
Explore your positive and negative expectations with an open heart and curious mind. Suspend any judgments.
If you feel a loss of faith and trust in yourself, others, and The Divine in how your prayers and dreams are manifesting, get honest.
What were your real expectations?
Where does your faith and trust need to be strengthened?
What thought patterns do you need to shift, transform, and release?
Be willing to shine a light on any vibrational inconsistencies between your mind and your soul. By mining down to your expectations, you can see if they are a match to your desires and support them or counter them.
