“So happy and excited” - that’s what many of think we’ll feel when our big thing manifests.

But I don’t think that’s necessarily the case much of the time.

Because by the time our big thing is happening, we’re not usually bouncing off the walls with excitement. We saw it coming, we got used to the idea, we came to feel the inevitability of it - which is of course what vibrational alignment feels like.

"Of course. I’ve been expecting you.”

So, if that’s how we feel right before it happens - that “of course” kind of expectation, it makes me wonder what would it take for us to feel that “of course”-ness about our current desire right now? Because we know once we get there, we’re home free.

    Abraham is quoted from their Caribbean cruise March of last year: “Whatever is manifesting in your experience is a perfect reflection of what you’re expecting.” So our expectations are critical.

A fellow coach spoke with me as I was writing this post about how excited she’d be to have her group teleclass fill up. I remember thinking I’d be excited about filling my first class too, but that’s not what it ended up feeling like.

By the time it got there, it felt more like, “okay, that’s cool, makes sense … next up!”

When I moved into a beautiful home with a great guy, it didn’t feel like ‘YAY!! All my romantic dreams have come true!” It more felt like, “ahhhh. This is it. Nicely done.” It felt very natural and had an “of course”-ness about it.

(Isn’t it funny how our miracles don’t always feel so miraculous by the time they happen?)

All this leads me to ask how can we best leverage and implement the power of positive expectation?

With current manifestation projects, I ask myself if they have an “of course” feeling about it. And the answer is … uh … well, not really. Not yet.

What would it take to make it feel like an “of course” situation? What would help me feel complete and confident knowing that it’s happening?

I suspect the answer to those questions provides us good material for our manifestations. That’s where we may very well find some newly inspired action, or new aligned thoughts, or even more discernment about what’s standing in our vibrational way.

I invite you to ask yourself these questions:

  • What would it take to make your dream come true seem like an inevitable outcome?
  • What would you have to do different?
  • What would you have to feel different?
  • What would you have to believe different?

Would you need a new sense of confidence? Some tweaking of a belief or two? Or maybe there’s a bold action calling you.

I know this much: when we get to the place of feeling “Of course” about our desire coming to fruition, that’s where we’ll see big things happening!

As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this subject! See you in the comments …
