Living with Great Expectations

Does your Life reflect your expectations?

Do the thoughts you send out echo the results you receive?

If you’re unfamiliar with the workings of the Universe, here’s a quick re-cap:

  • You decide what you want,
  • You feel like you’ve already received those things,
  • You take action towards your dreams and wishes and
  • The Law of Attraction responds by bringing experiences or objects that match your wishes into your Life.
  • You express your gratitude and thanks to the Universe for bringing forth your expectations, which will bring more of the same.

‘Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and our expectations.’

~Earl Nightingale

It doesn’t matter how big or small your yearnings are; the Universe will bring your desires to you.

When you understand and trust this you can have lots of fun with it, because the Universe likes to engage in light-hearted playfulness.

Money Magnet

I’ll let you in on a fun, little, quirk of mine…I find money.

I find money nearly every day I’m out.

Coins literally cross my path.

When running errands this sometimes happens two and three times a day.

It’s mostly coins but paper monies, as I call them, show up, too.

The really cool thing is that the monies are usually ‘head’s up’.

When I bend down to pick them up I read ‘In God We Trust’ on the currency.

This makes me smile. I give a knowing giggle and reply, ‘Why, yes…yes, I do.’

Finding monies confirms my belief in the forces of the Universe and the power of the Law of Attraction in my daily Life.

Pennies from Heaven

How does this happen?

I expect it to occur.

Why does it happen?

I trust it will appear.

What do I do with these special monies?

I spend them, because I know the Universe is an abundant place.

I trust in the bounty of the world, therefore I have faith more monies will materialize.

Believe you’ll find money and the Universe will react accordingly.

The Universe will respond to your anticipation.

It’ll answer your expectation to find monies, by liberally placing it in your path, too.

Why Didn’t I See That?

I was walking from the parking lot into the college sports complex for my power yoga class. Heading into the building, I realized I hadn’t found monies that day.

‘Not to worry, it’ll turn up.’, I thought while smiling, confidently.

Moments later, I rounded the corner and noticed a bright shiny penny on the ground.

I smiled again, while saying to the nearby students, ‘It’s my lucky day. I found a penny!’

Bending down to pick it up, I saw another lucky penny, and another lucky penny, and another. There were five coins in all, spread over 20 inches of flooring.

While picking-up each of the coins, I said, ‘Here’s another lucky penny; and another one. Oh look, here’s another one…Thank you, Universe.’

A student was squatting against the wall, texting someone. She looked up at me and said, ‘I’ve been sitting here for a half-hour, 18 inches from the floor. Why didn’t I see that? How come I didn’t find any of those lucky pennies?’

I smiled at her and replied, ‘Because you weren’t supposed to see them. I knew I’d find them. I believed they’d be there, for me.’

She looked at me with wondering eyes, and replied, ‘But, I don’t understand…how could you have seen them from 6 feet away? And I was here. They were right in front of me. I don’t understand.’

To which I knowingly, yet empathetically replied, ‘Yes, I know.’

A Mirror of Attitudes and Expectations

Long ago I absorbed a knowing about the Universe and how it works. It’s a lesson the student who asked me why she didn’t see the coins hasn’t learned…yet.

And that is this:

‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.’

~Henry Ford

In other words, the Universe wants you to have what you desire. It’ll do everything it needs to bring those experiences or objects to you, as long as you believe in them.

This world is a feeling Universe and everything in it is energy; people, thoughts, feelings and things.

Energy attracts like energy.

Positive thoughts and feelings will bring more uplifting experiences your way. Negative thoughts and feelings will produce more challenging situations and events.

These aren’t punishments or rewards meted out by the Universe to you. They’re chances for you to grow and learn.

Most importantly, they’re opportunities for you to connect with others in your Life and feel things more deeply with them. It’s about getting real and sharing who you really are, with who they really are.

So, the next time you see a coin, think of it as the Universe posing this question to you, ’A penny for your thoughts?’

Ask if your thoughts are attracting good, happy, uplifting things into your Life, or not?

There are endless possibilities for your Life, when you choose to meld your powerful, positive thoughts with the limitless wonders of the Universe.

Think about living your Life with great expectations.

How’s that for a novel idea?
