You Get What You EXPECT With the LOA, NOT What You Want!
Many people give up on theLaw of Attraction because they believe it operates differently than it really does. It’s important to remember that with the Law of Attraction, you don’t necessarily get what you want. Instead, you get what you expect.
This is why many people react in disbelief when they are first told about the Law of Attraction. It can be challenging to reconcile the idea that you can have anything you want. If you can create anything that you want in life, they say, then why is it impossible for people to do certain things? For example, why can’t you fly or move things telepathically with your mind?
Well, the truth is, it isn’t impossible. Indeed, anything is possible, even the most far-reaching, implausible and half-baked ideas can potentially manifest in our realities.
So yes, you could grow younger rather than older, win the lottery and own a farm of pigs that fly. It is possible, because with the Law of Attraction all things are possible.
In fact, science teaches us that indeed there are no facts, and that you can only disprove a theory, but never prove one. This is why scientific theories are ever-changing and ever-improving; reality and existence are ever-changing and ever-improving. Our understanding of reality is constantly evolving, and things we believe to be impossible today may very well be possible in the future.
To conceptualize this idea, think of life today from the perspective of a person living in the middle ages. Do you think a peasant from medieval times could even fathom driving his own car, receiving vacation pay and meeting women to date online? Probably not, yet as it turns out, these things are 100% a part of our current reality.
So then, if everything is possible, why do some things seem so very impossible?
The answer? Because we expect them to be impossible.
Again, with the Law of Attraction, you don’t necessarily get what you want, instead you get what you expect. This is a confusing factor for many people; they ask for what they want and they visualize what they want, but without the expectation the dream fails to manifest. Then, they often give up on the Law of Attraction, even though the Law of Attraction is working precisely and predictably the way it should.
So, no matter how far-fetched or how believable your dream is, if it isn’t manifesting in your reality, it can mean only one thing: you don’t expect it to manifest, period.
Why haven’t you found your soul mate? You get what you expect and you don’t expect to find him or her.
Why don’t you have your dream job? You get what you expect and you don’t expect to have it.
Seriously-think about it! For everything that you want that hasn’t yet materialize, I guarantee that you simply don’t expect that you will have it.
Ok then, you say, what are we to do when we don’t expect our dreams to manifest? How do we come to expect the impossible?
Well fortunately, expectations are adjustable and we change our expectations all of the time. If you have an expectation that isn’t working for you, know that you can change it.
In fact, truth be told, you have adjusted your expectations countless times in your life!
I guarantee that you have achieved many things that at one time seemed impossible. I know for a fact you have lived to see many things you never expected to see at one point.
How do I know this? Well, that’s just the nature of living. We were born to expand and adjust our expectations; that’s what this journey of life is all about.
So if you are struggling to cultivate expectation in your dream, take heart because developing expectation is something you’ve done subconsciously many times and it’s something you are very skilled at. Further, if you’d like to consciously adjust your expectations about a given dream, know that there are things you can do!
One suggestion is to start small and practice by gently adjusting your expectations daily. This is a low pressure, fun way to work with the Law of Attraction and see your intentions manifesting consistently.
Instead of trying to manifest the soul mate relationship right now, start by asking the universe to simply see more attractive people each day. Instead of trying to manifest the jackpot winnings right this minute, ask to manifest a reality where you find a few quarters on the ground. Instead of trying to manifest the dream job, ask to manifest a good day at work.
When you become good at manifesting your initial requests, move a bit further. Ask the universe to manifest a conversation with someone attractive. Ask the universe to help you find a couple of dollars. As the universe for some recognition at work.
Build slowly, and keep adjusting your practice outward. Start where you believe, and gently reach for more. This is one way to build momentum with the Law of Attraction and change your expectations about what you can manifest.
Of course, if you’d like some assistance in adjusting your expectations, I’m available for one-on-one Law of Attraction mentoring and I also administer a membership website you are more than welcome to join.
