Balancing Dreams and Expectations

Balancing our dreams with our expectations of reality will end our manifesting journey before it even gets underway.

“I’d love to start my own business, but I could never afford to live without a steady paycheck….” “I’m ready to welcome in a partner, but as a 52 year old single parent, the dating pool is non-existent.”
“I wanted it so much, but I walked away because I knew I wasn’t going to happen.”

Are you seeing the same pattern I’m seeing? Every time someone tells me why they cannot achieve a dearly held goal, I relish the opportunity to unwind that narrative and show them that they can indeed have what they want. Resistance is a tricky thing.

We all juggle the different sides of ourselves, in an attempt to harmonize our spiritual selves with our material growth and worldly status. Sometimes we wobble around like a tight rope walker about to fall. The key to equilibrium, is to embrace the idea that our minds, bodies, emotions and spirits are intimately connected. What affects one affects the others.

When we’re faced with challenges, our ego minds often work overtime to convince us that the impending doom and disaster we imagine is real. That we will fall from our tight rope balancing act and meet an untimely demise. The truth is that the fear (sorrow/disappointment/shame/disillusion) dominating our thoughts will dissipate when we acknowledge and deconstruct it.

To limit ourselves by thinking that we can only wish for what history has shown us is possible, is rubbish. The antidote is to develop a sense of pronoia: the idea that the universe is conspiring to shower us with blessings.

When Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “Once you make a decision the universe conspires to make it happen” he was invoking a basic tenet of the law of attraction. That small shift, that decision, can make enormous waves of change, if only we have the faith that what we need will be provided before we need it. I would like to add that we also need to be careful for what we wish for.

When we find the right balance between the spiritual and material we can blend our conscious and unconscious power. Listening to our intuition and inner knowing helps us manifest whatever we want.

Cut away from limited thinking and know that you have the power to manifest your plans, if you give yourself permission to believe that it’s possible.
