“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, expect to grow spiritually.” –Eileen Caddy

Read Eileen Caddy’s’ quote several times and really FEEL yourself shifting from expectations of lack to expectations of abundance in every area, from a sense of overwhelm in your life to a sense of trust in the outcome. Doesn’t that feel comforting? Perhaps you even noticed that your body and mind became more relaxed.

So often our minds are filled with “monkey chatter” that dwells on all the negative expectations we have. We expect (worry) a new love relationship to end, just like all the others. We expect too little money in the checking account at the end of the month, just like always, We focus on a problem, going over and over it in our minds, rather than affirming for a solution.

There is a wonderful story about Edgar Cayce, a world renowned psychic who lived in the last century. He became famous because of his ability to diagnose illnesses at a distance. Cayce didn’t charge for this service, but he always trusted that whatever was needed would be provided. Once the rent was due and his wife was getting anxious about having enough for the payment. Cayce assured her they could trust the Universe. Sure enough, the money came in from a grateful client. But instead of paying the rent, Cayce went out and bought a fishing rod! Imagine the frustration his wife felt! He assured her they could trust. And yes, another donation came in that covered the rent.

Where in you life do you need to expect the solution or expect your needs to be met? The Universal Energy that energizes our cells and is the substance of all there is, from the smallest particle to the largest star, is abundant in every sense of the word. Because you are a part of that energy, YOU are entitled to all abundance.

Begin to EXPECT miracles, EXPECT to be loved and appreciated, EXPECT the answers, EXPECT whatever you want.

Changing your expectations (your way of thinking about life) takes practice. Would you go out on a tennis court and expect to play perfectly the first time? No, but you could expect to learn quickly and play well! Have you ever watched the Olympics and heard the personal stories of the athletes and how they practice and focu?/ Pretend that you are in the mental Olympics, and you are going for the gold in your own life. Your task is to be aware of the meanderings of your own mind and continually correct the course when it begins to go down the train track of old expectations. Ask yourself: What thoughts would I like to choose that are nurturing and inspiring to me? If not, what thoughts could you consciously CHOOSE that do feel better? You are in choice, moment by moment. Choose thoughts that nourish your heart and mind, and you will experience wonderful changes in your life!
