Desire Without Expectation

21 Aug

Desire without expectation is nothing more than wishful thinking.  The vast majority of people wish positive but expect negative.  (Your Name) expect only positive things to flow to you. ~A Born Rich Affirmation

 

Please, let me first define what an affirmation is: According to Scott Armstrong of the Boulder Coaching Academy, “Affirmations, really, are simple. They are you being in conscious control of your thoughts. They are short, powerful statements. When you say them or think them or even hear them, they become the thoughts that create your reality. Affirmations, then, are your conscious thoughts.”

Often when I ask the Universe for what I want to manifest in my life I often use the word desire. For example: If I’m asking for a perfect day I’ll say; Infinite Spirit, my desire is for a perfect day today. A day where everything comes my way and where everything goes my way. Or, Infinite Spirit, I desire to write a magnificent blog. One that touches and inspires every person who reads it.

To just desire this perfect day or magnificent blog is wishful thinking. For a desire to become reality requires that it be backed-up by expectation. Meaning, I must have faith that the day I ask for will indeed be the day I receive, or the blog I wrote will inspire the people I wanted it to. Expectation is that faith.

Now here is where most people trip up. They ask their higher power for what they want, but a little voice in the back of their mind whispers to them, “You can ask for it all you want but you probably won’t get it.” And when they don’t receive what they asked for they believe that the Universe has conspired against them. When in reality they really didn’t fully expect it in the first place.

Here is the formula: Ask + Faith + Expectation = Whatever You Desire

How to Create the Perfect Life in 3 Steps!

26 Feb

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past 10 years you probably have heard of The Secret and its message: The Universal Law of Attraction.

But exactly what is this so-called universal law? And how does it work in your life? Simply put, it says that we attract into our lives that which we think about and give emotion to. In other words, your thoughts become the things in your life.

Now you’re probably thinking that sounds pretty good. I’ll just think about $1,000,000 to miraculously appear in my bank account, and poof there it is. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that.

Basically, the law states that our various thoughts all vibrate at different rates. That those vibrating thoughts go out into the Universe and attract other like thoughts that vibrate at the same frequency. These vibrational thoughts then act as magnets, attracting to you the things you desire in your life.

The challenge we face is that of the 60,000 thoughts scientists tell us each of us think in a day, 90%, or 54,000, are negative. This means that we have a 9 in 10 chance of creating negative things in our lives, the very things we don’t want, as opposed to the things we do want. That’s why we so often hear people say that the law doesn’t work. But it is working, only it is working in reverse.

Considering that our minds generate so many thoughts in a day we must bar the door to negative thoughts, or we will create negative things in our life. And to help us do this, we have been given a very unique tool. We feel our thoughts. What I mean by this is that our thoughts create feelings. Happy creative thoughts generate feelings of joy and happiness. Negative thoughts generate feelings of fear, uncertainty, doubt, worry and sadness. When feeling fear ask yourself, what am I thinking? It will be a negative thought. Now let that thought go and replace it with the positive thought of what you truly desire.

To make the Universal Law of Attraction work for you follow this simple plan. 1) Ask the Universe for what you want (positive thought). Be specific. Try to picture in your mind exactly what you want. If it’s a new car picture yourself driving this new car and feeling how exhilarating it is. 2) Continue to hold the positive thought in your mind. Believe that in time your desire will manifest itself into your life (faith). And, 3) fully expect that what you want will indeed be delivered to you (expectation).

It will take some work, but I can assure you that the law does work. In fact, look around you. Everything you see first started out as a thought in someone’s mind. Your mind is just as fertile. Thus, the next great invention may come from you.

With Love,

Michael

 

Life is More Than a Journey – It is an Adventure

21 Feb

I’m sure you’ve heard this statement before, Life is a Journey. In fact you could even consider it a cliché. But it’s true. Life is a journey. But I like to take it one step further and call it an adventure.

I believe that there are three types of people in the world. Those that live in the past. Those that live in the future. And those who live in the present. We each know people in all three categories, and as you read on, you may even recognize yourself.

For those living in the past their belief is that their best days are behind them. They are either reliving their past glories, experiencing once again those good and positive feelings about themselves. Or, they’re besieged by nightmares of past mistakes, errors and failures. Feeling the shame and the embarrassment over and over again.

For those who live in the future they see glory, wealth and fame just over the next horizon. All they need to do is just slog through another day. Hoping and wishing that they’ll win the lottery, or some other stroke of luck will happen to them. Or, for some, they live in fear of the future constantly worrying about when the next catastrophe will occur. They fear the future because they fear the unknown.

And then there are those who live their lives now, in the present. Here you’ll find the smallest number of people. A very slim minority.

People who live in the present know that their life is a gift from God. That they do not live in a chaotic Universe where things just happen. They know each moment is powerful. For it is in the moment when they create their future by asking their higher power for what they want. Knowing that their asking coupled with their faith and expectation will create in their life all that they desire.

Stop and take five minutes of your present and ask yourself; Where do I live; in the past, in the future, or in the present moment?

Then remember – it is never too late to start creating the life you want. NOW!

With Love,

Michael

Expect and it Will Come!

Expectation is the triggering mechanism which attracts into my life every good I desire. ~Born Rich

The above quote comes from a book I read over 20 years ago called Born Rich. It is out of print and impossible to find, but fortunately I have written down most of the positive affirmations it contained.

I love the above affirmation. All too often we use the Law of Attraction to ask the Universe for what we want, and then leave it at that. And when what we asked for doesn’t manifest in our life, in the time frame we demanded, we blame the law.

Expectation is an emotion. Think of Christmas when you were a kid. Every day, starting after Thanksgiving, you thought about Christmas and all the things you asked Santa for.  You never doubted that Santa Claus would bring them to you. You knew he would and you expected to see them under the tree on Christmas morning.

It’s the same with using the Law of Attraction. You can’t just ask for what you want and forget about it. It’s like planting a flower and never watering it. The flower won’t bloom and neither will your request to the Universe.

Expectation, like water and fertilizer, is the nurturing influence that will bring you all that you desire.

To your expectations,

Michael

Expect and You Shall Receive

16 Jan

Expectation is the triggering mechanism which attracts into my life every good I desire. From the book Born Rich.

I know many people who practice the Law of Attraction. Some are quite good at attracting into their lives all that they desire, while others seem to struggle. Never quite creating what they truly want.

I was one of those people who struggled until I was loaned the book Born Rich (unfortunately out of print). What I learned was that I did a great job of asking for what I wanted (planting the seed) but I did a horrible job of nurturing my desire (watering, fertilizing, weeding, etc.). Because of this I would get frustrated and blamed God and the Universe for preventing me from achieving the results I wanted. But God and the Universe weren’t against me. I was against me.

You see I was missing a very important element to manifesting into my life the things that I wanted. There was a part of me that didn’t always believe I would achieve my goals. Instead of expecting what I asked for to come into my life my delusional thoughts and inner voice would tell me that I would never succeed. Why did I believe this? Most often it was because I didn’t think I deserved it. Or my belief, that good things always happened to other people, but never to me. I allowed my negative thoughts, generated by Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt to dominate my thoughts and expectations until I was doing more pushing away of what I wanted, then attracting it.

So instead of pushing my desires away I learned how to expect them. Here are some tips to help you master the Law of Attraction.

  • Ask for what you want. Be specific and remember you deserve to have everything that you desire.
  • Continue to ask for what you want every day, and expect it to arrive, just as if you purchased it on Amazon and are waiting for UPS to deliver it.
  • Whenever a negative thought comes up in your mind that is the opposite of what you want, say, “thank you for this thought, and now I’m going to let you go.”
  • Then replace the negative thought with the exact opposite. Let me give you an example: Say that you asked for a new car. Then all these nagging doubts come up. What if I can’t afford it? What if I’m refused credit? What if I can’t get enough for my trade-in? These thoughts will not only kill off your ability to attract what you want, but they’ll put you into a depression. When they come just say thank you and once again ask for what you want. Then picture in your mind yourself already in possession of that new car, in the color you want, driving it around the neighborhood to admiring glances and then showing it off to your family and friends.
  • Hold that picture in your mind of you enjoying your new car, and never never give up.

To expecting your dreams,

Michael
