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 51-year-old single parent, the dating pool is non-existent.”
“I wanted it so much, but I walked away because I knew itwasn’t going to happen.”

Are you seeing the same pattern I’m seeing? When someone tells me they cannot achieve a dearly held goal, I love taking the opportunity to smash that narrative and show them they CAN have what they want. Resistance is tricky but can be nipped in the bud.

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 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 must also be careful about what we wish for. We can manifest the negative or positive and should choose our thoughts mindfully. Thoughts create real things!

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. Pivot away from limited thinking and know that you can manifest your plans if you permit yourself to believe that anything is possible.
