Why to Stop Expecting Miracles
If your desire still feels like a miracle to you, that’s probably why.
Because things don’t manifest that we don’t easily believe in or expect.
Our big dreams unfold when it feels like a logical “of course” next step.
That’s what vibrational alignment is all about. When we’re in the same neighborhood as our desire is. Not on the other side of the globe.
In fact, listen to this story …
… I know a certain 6 year old who decided one day that he’d rather go to work than go to school.
(Those were the options given to him by his mom.)
By the end of that day, I kid you not, that little guy had a job as a speechwriter for the governor.
He got the interview on his own and sat down with the governor by himself. (Although his mom helped with his resume and his nanny accompanied him on the bus for his commute to interviews.)
This kid just expected that someone would hire him.
(Why wouldn’t they? He didn’t know that 6 year olds don’t get hired for work.)
And by day’s end the governor engaged him to write two official speeches.
That’s not a miracle – that’s vibrational alignment.
That’s the power of positive expectation.
So as long as your desire feels like a big deal that will change your life forever, you’re too far away from it vibrationally for it to show up at your door.
Bottom line, if it feels like a miracle, you’re not ready for it yet.
Here’s what Abraham has to say about it:
When things are ready to pop for you in full manifestational view, they feel like the next logical step. It doesn’t feel like bouncing off the walls. It just feels like, ”Yes, but of course. I knew that was coming.”
So how can we learn to expect miracles?
Well, by first of all not thinking of it as such a big deal.
Yes, it’s cool. But it’s not out of our league.
We can reflect regularly on the reasons to believe in it instead of the reasons it seems unlikely – which may include:
- Remembering that others have already experienced it.
- Knowing how the system works – it you can imagine it, you can create it.
- Reflecting on your past successful manifestations.
- Remembering who you are – a powerful conscious creator who is capable of anything you put your mind to.
We can also tell the story of it. See it happening in your mind’s eye. Get used to the idea of it. (You know when it starts to feel “normal” that you’re making good progress!)
What we believe and what we expect is simply a matter of what thoughts and images we’ve practiced.
I’m laughing at the thought of Jesus, before he crossed the sea on foot, saying to himself, “Man, wouldn’t it be freaky if I could walk on this water? Wouldn’t that be the craziest thing ever?!” I don’t know for sure, but I suspect it’s more likely he was quite confident in his ability to walk across the sea.
Abe says, “When it shifts – when you are 51% more expecting it than doubting it, things start showing up that then amplify your belief. Once you make that pivot on the fulcrum now you’re off and running.”
Here’s to getting used to the idea of big dreams come true.
