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.

Part 5 is coming in a two days!

Does your faith shake?

Do you find it difficult to stand in full trust that all will be well when gripped by fear?

Does life feel unsafe?

Do you long for inner stability and peace to know that, no matter what is happening, you will be ok?

How Easily Do You Give Up?

When you want something do you really go for it or do you come up with reasons why you can’t have it?

Do you convince yourself that something is impossible before taking one step to find out whether that is true?

And if you do take that first step do you take the next one and then the next?

Working with thousands of people over the past 25+ years I have learned quite a bit about why people do what they do.  And I have learned a lot about my own excuses, fears, and self-sabotage behaviors.

This is the journey we are all on; a journey of liberation from the mind and emotional suffering to align with our soul , our higher self, and the Divine presence within us.

I know some folks never even take that first step because they have already talked themselves into impossibility thinking or feel they are undeserving.

And some people will take that first step and never follow though if they receive no response or think they haven’t heard back.

Follow up is critical. If you want something, you have to be willing to go the distance and do things even if it is uncomfortable.

When I want something badly enough and feel that intuitive guidance to take that next step , I can still get caught up in those old emotional entanglements that can hold me back in fear and questions of self-worth

That a signal for me to stop, take a few deep breaths, bring myself back into the present moment, and call out to the Divine Presence to be with me.

Within a short time, sometimes a few seconds or minutes, I can feel the heaviness lift, my mind clears,  and I feel more connected inside.  Doing the inner work has shown me how to shift from inner chaos to a calm inner center.

Taking action with God by your side is pretty powerfull! Miracles begin to happen that is not solely dependent on your hard work!

When you want something badly enough you have to be willing to put consistent energy into following through. You must be willing to do whatever it takes to have what you are yearning for.

You must be willing to see life though a different lens; one that shows you that perceived obstacles are stepping stones and pathways to your dreams.

You have to be willing to be vulnerable, look and feel silly, make mistakes, or feel scared to create the life of your dreams. It also takes commitment, passion, and tenacity to persevere.

And you must be willing to let go of the thought patterns and beliefs generated by your EGO that keep your separated from the deeper truth of who you really are and the Presence living in you and through you that wants your life to be abundant and happy.

Life is a journey of faith, trust, and courage to boldly go where you have never dared to go before when you know in your heart you must take that next step.

If you have a quick “impossibility’ response and you allow that belief to rule your life, you will continue to miss windows of opportunities that open and close that may end up as regrets.

I know life can get busy, distractions happen, and all sorts of other reasons contribute to things falling through the cracks. We are human!

For example: I schedule reminders into my Outlook email program so I don’t have to keep things in my head. I usually respond to requests within 48 hours so they are off my plate. And when something is really important to me, I am very persistent.

When I was applying for a loan modification for my townhouse, I must have made 25 calls over a 3 month period to get the ball rolling and did everything needed to complete the process. And believe me - some of the actions I needed to take were not fun!

The real question is, “How badly do you want something and what are you willing to do or be to have it?”

Do you believe everything you think?

Do you make assumptions and accept them as truth without challenging your beliefs and conclusions? If you said yes, how often are you wrong?

If you had a negative experience in the past, do you expect the next situation to be a repeat? Watch those self-fulfilling prophecies – you powerfull Creator!

Life calls you to show up and claim what is yours.

Do you hear your call?

Are you listening and following your guidance?

My friend Brent says many people give up 5 minutes before the miracle happens.

Some give up waaay before those five minutes.

Life is meant to be experienced and lived, not witnessed as a spectator.

In the US today, July 4, we celebrate Independence Day, a day of liberation and freedom in America’s history.

2012 is your year to begin living an extraordinary life filled with love. And the most powerfull ally you have to liberate you from the false beliefs that run your life lies within the relationship you have with God (whoever you believe that to be - Jesus, Buddha, Creator…) and the commitment to your healing inner work.

With God… all things are possible…

Are you in or are you out?


Believe it, See it, Be it, Know it, Feel it and you WILL Create IT!

By Anita Pathik Law

Recently, during a workshop I was teaching, I shared an important statement that felt as if I should be speaking it to you directly.
I am imagining I am looking directly into your eyes, taking in a deep breath and then saying,  
This one little sentence holds many keys to manifesting your greatest desires.
And, it is all about alignment.
When you align, the Universe responds in kind.
And, the first thing you really need to believe in is yourself-you need to believe and see yourself as worthy of creating and enjoying the life and relationships of your dreams.
I’d like to ask you to think of one thing-one thing that if you were able to BELIEVE IT consistently, without doubt or fear, it would have the potential to completely alter your entire existence, and open you to Live the Power of Your Way.
You need to believe in more than the possibility…
More than the probability…
And, you need to see yourself as worthy of receiving, being loved, respected and trusted.
This is a HUGELY important reminder when attending to the legacy of a soul that was born to evolve and serve.
Today, I ask permission to speak to your soul. Not your personality, who may have forgotten how brilliant and magnificent you are.

Not the identities you’ve established through both hardships and disappointments.

I want to reach out to the part of you that is ready to step up and be bolder in its expression.

An invite you to align with a destiny that is asking to be revealed in your life.
I just posted a new inspirational movie and audio at www.aligningwithdestiny.com  and http://powerofourway.blogs.com
I invite you to open your eyes to be your guide, your heart to be your propellant, and your mind to partner with you in achieving the desires that were born of your soul.
Open your mind to new wisdom and listen to the movie and audio that is posted at www.aligningwithdestiny.com and make sure to sign up to receive three fr*e*e downloads at www.powerofmyway.com/aligningwithdestiny.html 
Do the energy clearing meditation and let it do it’s thing.
Then, if you have not already done so, sign up for this incredible 12 session teleclass with me and Lorraine Cohen at www.aligningwithdestiny.com and as soon as you download and print your preparation guide and assessment, get started.
Immerse yourself for a few hours in what we have put together for you (you will get 8 more action guides as we move through this program.)
Receive it. Soak it in. Feel it. See it. Know it. Be it. Believe it.
Then, share the gifts that come into your awareness. Sharing creates BIG energy.
Energy moves mountains when partnered with faith, trust and love.
You are all of these things - You are energy, faith, love, and trust.
These are not things to get, to seek, or to grow. They are qualities that make up who you are at your essence.
These are aspects of you that exist and are just asking to be embraced and shared.
Be love today…Be faith today, Be of SERVICE today and watch what happens.
Namasté, Anita

Compelling Conversation For Powerfull Living: Fear & Faith

When we come to the edge of all the light we have
And must take a step into the darkness of the unknown
We must believe one of two things
Either we will find something firm to stand on
Or, we will be taught to fly.”

by Patrick Overton Copyright © 1975 The Leaning Tree

We’ll talk about:

1. How to maintain a positive prosperity outlook during times of uncertainty

2. How to access the power of courage, faith, and trust

3. How to diffuse negative and fearfull thinking

Do You Have The Courage To Let Go Of Control?

“As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because He was my friend
But then instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone
I hung around and tried to help
In ways that were my own
At last I snatched them back and cried
How could You be so slow?
My child,
He said, What could I do?
You never did let go?” - Anon

In the 12-step program, you’ll find the philosophy of “letting go and letting God”. New thought leaders repeatedly affirm the importance of allowing the “how” of our dreams and desires to be handled by God/The Universe/Higher Power. Our role is to have a clear vision, see it, feel the emotion of joyfully and gratefully having/being what we desire, eliminating the beliefs that block receiving what we want and then letting go of the unfolding of that vision to manifest for our best and highest.

Being the creator of our destiny isn’t a passive state. When we partner with the Universe we are listening to the inner guidance that flows to us in moments of meditation or inspiration to nudge us into action.

Sounds simple right?

So, are you letting go? I mean really letting go, expecting and trusting your dreams and desires to manifest?

You might say, “I’m a control freak. Letting go is very tough for me.”You’ve probably  collected lots of evidence to back up your position - painful past experiences that have taught you that the only way you can stay safe and protect yourself is being in control. And you may have grown up with, ” The only one you can really depend on is YOU. You have to look out for yourself because no one else will.”

Aren’t we supposed to set goals, develop strategies, and take action to  make them happen? Isn’t it up to us to take 100% responsibility for what we do to grow our business, cultivate relationships, raise children, make money….? Don’t we have to do things to have what we want?

Yes and no.

Fear is a powerful energy that can inhibit receiving the full scope of what is possible and we end up with slices of what we dream and desire. It’s like holding up your hand and yelling “stop.” while asking for more at the same time.  Keeping a tight grasp on control may seem to be the answer of holding fear at bay that often results in keeping the people and things we desire at arms length. Our natural state is to connect with others. Fear of loss of control can isolate us from others, creating more pain and loneliness.

It’s a double bind and an illusion.

We can get so caught up in the stories and dramas we imagine that we hold the reins tighter. What we truly control is how we see things and how we respond to what we see. We choose to believe our stories or challenge their authenticity by looking at the facts rather than what our mind is saying as truth. Whatever we give the most attention and juice to is what we will manifest.

There are times that I’m great at standing firmly in faith and trust, tapping into my intuition and instincts to guide my thoughts and actions.  And then there are those times when my reality doesn’t seem to match up with what I desire. It’s easy to step into, “What am I doing wrong? When are things going to get easier? What am I blocking that I need to clear?” Self-judgments, anger, frustration, blame…. Blah, blah, blah.

And then I have this clarity… have I actually let go for the “how” to unfold or am I hanging around putting my 2 cents in?  Am I really allowing what I wish to create or going  through the motions. Do I really know how to let go and let God? Am I coming from love (expansion) or fear (constriction)? Being the powerfull creator that I am, is my life experience a reflection of who I am and what is desired, or the opposite of it?

Hmmm…. lots of nos

So, what needs to shift?

Where I’m placing my attention and shifting from fear to faith

Faith is believing and knowing that all needs, wants, and desires are already fulfilled. That every prayer request has been answered the moment it is asked. Remembering that every soul is part of The Divine and we are here to experience creation. - our creation, both individually and collectively. And learning how to dance with creation so that what we do is in alignment with who we are.

7 things that help me to reconnect with my faith:

1. Meditation - silent or guided

2. Reading something inspirational

3. Feeling gratitude and appreciation for all the gifts and blessing in my life

4. Doing something loving and generous for someone else

5. Connecting with nature and my cats

6. Connecting with one of my close spiritual friends like Anita Pathik Law

7. Stopping, taking some breaths and getting present

This weekend, I began reading Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God, Book 1″. It’s been around for years and I never read it. In the book, the dialogue includes:

  • Life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation (pg. 20)
  • Praying for something actually pushes it away from us because the request is a statement of lack. The correct prayer is one of gratitude, a thank you in advance in appreciation for all that you wish to experience in your reality. To be truly grateful for something that isn’t there requires faith. (pg. 11)
  • Judgment is an error in thinking and results in pain. Remove the judgment and the pain disappears (pg 37)
  • The first step in changing anything is to know and accept you have chosen it to be what it is (pg 36).  This can be a tough one for folks because it means letting go of blame and taking 100% responsibility for your creation.
  • The process of creation begins with thought. The second level is word and the third level is action. (pg 74). Are your thoughts, words, and action creating what is desired or undesired?

Personally, I’m focusing on cultivating my faith and trust by keeping my attention of love, gratitude, and being of service to others while staying true to ‘Who I am ” as I know myself to be in every moment of every day. And I’m staying open to recognize the subtle and obvious ways my fear comes out as control that causes constriction rather than expansion. All the energy going into needing to be in control is exhausting!

This is my journey of remembering and re-creation. Neale writes, “Feeling is the language of the soul,” and I want to feel it all. That what being alive is!

How about you? Join me?

30 Abundance & Positive Thinking Quotes


People have always shown great resiliency and drive despite the headlines or world conditions.  Here are just a few examples from past Time magazine covers in the US:

  • July 14, 2020 – “Can Capitalism Survive?”
  • October 31, 2020 – “War on Terrorism”
  • April 21, 2020 – “Is Capitalism Working?”
  • December 3, 2020 – “America’s Banks: Awash in Troubles”
  • October 15, 2020 – “High Anxiety: Recession . . . Paralysis . . . War”
  • April 11, 2020 – “Risky Business on Wall Street”
  • September 14, 2020 – “Is the Boom Over?

Wherever you are in the world, it is during times of uncertainty, negativity, and fear that our faith and best selves can become stronger and our ability to manifest abundance in all forms can flourish.

With the tension and fear-based messages we read and hear about daily, I thought a good dose of empowered positivity would be a welcome topic for today and remind us again that we are more powerfull than we think! Things are not always what they appear….

Keep the faith….one minute, one day at a time

1. Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else. Your completeness must be understood by you and experienced in your thoughts as your own personal reality. ~ Wayne Dyer

9. People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality, the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to…rather than detracts from…our lives. ~ Stephen R. Covey

10. Life is a field of unlimited possibilities. ~ Deepak Chopra

~ Mary Kay Ash

19. People who have drawn wealth into their lives used The Secret, whether consciously or unconsciously. They think thoughts of abundance and wealth, and they do allow any contradictory thoughts to take root in their minds. ~ Rhonda Byrne

20. Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined. ~ Deepak Chopra

21. Decide what you want .. believe you can have it, believe you deserve it, believe it’s possible for you.

Are Your Beliefs Creating The Reality You Desire?

Are your beliefs shaped by your past experiences, or do you experience what you believe in, thus creating your own reality?

Beliefs are comprised of attitudes, assumptions, and myths (false perceptions we hold about ourselves). Beliefs fuel behaviors; behaviors validate beliefs! Your self-talk gives voices to your beliefs inside your head and what you verbally repeat to others.

I see clients repeatedly feeling frustrated and beating themselves up because they are stuck in behavior patterns that aren’t bringing them the results they desire. They come to me looking for tips and strategies and often fail to see the connection between what they believe as truth and the reality they are creating! Helloooooooooooooooooooo.

Examining your beliefs is essential in understanding who you are and why you do what you do. The result is greater clarity in making choices and taking actions that are in alignment with who you are!

Beliefs that arise resulting from past experiences (situations and influential people) affect the way we approach each new situations- either being open and flowing with the experience or living defensively (survival) with preconceived expectations. Accepting the viewpoint that our life experience is the source of our beliefs causes us to see life full of challenges and limitations we need to survive and overcome. Changing behavior starts with changing beliefs, shifting attitudes and assumptions.

Your individual viewpoint consists of observations, attitude and conclusions:

1. What you first see as an observer or as a participant.

2. The attitudes (beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and assumptions) you assign to what you have observed.

3. The conclusions you reach from what you have observed. How you consciously and unconsciously interpreted what you have observed based on what’s factual and what you have imagined (combined with influence from friends, family, colleagues, etc).

Awareness = choice.

The one power you always retain in any situation is how you choose to see that situation. You are in total control of your attitude at all times. Whether you realize it or not, you choose to either react or respond to situations positively or negatively.

Bottom line:

• Your attitude affects your decisions.
• Your decisions direct your actions.
• Your actions affect what you manifest

Don’t like what you’re creating and attracting? The key to changing your reality is looking at your beliefs.

See how this works?

Attitude exercise:

Over the next 24 hours, notice when you are feeling irritated, anxious or upset with someone or a specific situation. Observe your attitude. See if you can discover where your attitude is contributing to your irritation, anxiety, or upset and what underlying belief might be driving your attitude.

Tip: Suspend self-criticism and judgments when doing self-discovery work. Stay compassionate and curious to learn something you might not realize yourself. You cannot change something you are unaware of! Once revealed, you can choose to modify, transform, or replace any non-serving belief with one that is more empowering and authentic.

Have a great week!
