Acclimating to the Desire

Acclimating to Desires: Get Used To ItSometimes we conscious creators think our desire is taking longer to manifest than it should

  • The dream job was ordered up ages ago yet still we sit at the same old desk
  • We described Mr. Right to a T but he’s still just a figment of our imagination
  • We’ve been working on better health for eons and it seems like there’s little progress.

It can be frustrating when we’re not seeing the results we know are possible.

But there’s something to remember about this whole process of manifesting …

Sometimes it takes us a minute to get used to the idea of having what we want.

Whatever it is we desire, it can’t really come into physical fruition until it’s something we’ve come to expect. When it’s something that feels normal and like it belongs in our world – that’s when we’re a true vibrational match to it.

And that doesn’t always happen in the red hot moment we first recognize the desire.

It happened to me when I decided to create a coaching practice. I wanted it long before I believed in it.

Which meant it took a little doing to train myself into the expectation that people would hire me and that I could successfully run my own business.

I was the reason that manifestation took a little while to unfold.

And when I started house hunting … I entertained thoughts of a dream come true place long before it felt like a real possibility. At first it was just a crazy cool thought. A pipe dream.

It wasn’t until further down the line that I expected myself into it.

You can feel the difference between wanting and expecting, right? That’s the gap we’re talking about closing.

Abraham has said that our desire manifests when it feels like an “of course.” As long as it still feels like a crazy cool thing, we’re not fully acclimated to it. We’ve got a ways to go before we’re fully on board with having it.

We create a new normal for ourselves by pre-experiencing it internally. (That just means imagining it into our reality.)

Once we’re familiar with it on the inside it will take shape on the outside.

So the next time you’re thinking that it’s taking a while for your desire to unfold, just remember that you might still be in the process of getting used to the idea, and that’s okay.

If it manifests before you fully believe it, sometimes it goes out the back door just as quickly as it came through the front, and we find ourselves back at square one. So taking the time to learn to expect it is worth the effort.

    Sounds a bit like pre-digesting 🙂 It is definitely something I latched onto from both Abe and Neville Goddard. And it works! There have been things that I’ve imagined myself into that feel so good that I don’t even worry about it any more. Some things I”m still working on, but this is most definitely a valid concept. Thanks for the reminder!

    I really appreciate this blogpost. There’s something about putting it this way that makes much more sense to me than the usual “imagine it and feel it”. I think it’s the word ‘acclimate’. It’s like warming up to something, which I can do!

    Perhaps it’s one of those sensory things – some people see things in their mind, others hear it. I’ve had those experiences before and they just showed up. I found it more difficult to bring them about (eg visualize and then feel). Not impossible, just not as straightforward when it’s something I’ve wanted deeply and may have some resistance flowing too.

    The word ‘acclimate’ seems to allow me to warm up to something, get used to it. It feels like less pressure and I can go at my own speed. That reduces the resistance. It also makes me feel like it’s personal, something I get to be with and choose moment to moment. This brings me into my own experience and the present moment. The other words sometimes make me feel under pressure.

    I love this and am excited to play with it. 🙂

    Thank you for this, but how do I acclimate to something I’ve never experienced? How do I generate the feeling of abundance if I’ve never felt abundant? I have no idea what its like to feel rich, to have enough money, to spend it without guilt or fear.. I cant seem to move forward because of this.

  4. Exactly what I needed to read today! I’m having some trouble getting aligned with a few of my current desires. Felt good to be reminded that it’s all ok 🙂

    Hi Jeanette, I had a fun time reading this blog entry! Thank You! I would like to seek your opinion on something on understanding the connection between PRJ and Law of Detachment.

    I have to serve a 5 day military duty next week, and I would like to have it cancelled as I have other exciting events that I would like to attend (and mostly because I hate serving duty haha:)) I started a prain rain journal for this, starting off how happy I am to receive the news that the duty is cancelled on the first page, and recounting the cancellation in the subsequent days as I attended other events. It has been 28 days since I started journalling and “visualising” this cancellation. I have been thanking the Universe every day and every moment (literally!) for cancelling my duty and thereby enabling me to participate in other events. I also express gratitude for other aspects of my life daily. However, my duty is still going on next week and I dont see signs of its cancellation:(( Honestly, I am really depressed!

    I have been told by another LoA practitioner that I am not allowing my manifestation as I am too attached to the outcome. Pray rain journalling helps me to feel and experience my desires from the point of having it. How then do I use PRJ to detach or allow the physical manifestation, like the cancellation of my duty in my case? Should I stop journalling about this altogether and give up? I am not sure how to respond to this. Really need your advice! Thank you for taking your time to read through this and sorry for the looong post!! Thank You!!

    Hi Jeannette,
    How exactly do we acclimate when what we want still feels big? When we want to be married but haven’t been meeting many men we’re interested in, want to be working on our dream career full time but don’t have the money or contacts to do it, when we want to live in a certain country but can’t see many possible avenues to get a residence visa there, want financial freedom but are only earning some money? Can a coach help accelerate this process of acclimation?

      PS I love your story about how you followed your internal nudge to go out to lunch at work! I’m seeing more and more, even if I don’t have complete trust in the process, that following what sounds fun is how we manifest our desires, even if it seems unrelated!
