You Won't Be That Excited
Whenever I ask a client how they’ll feel when their big desire manifests, often they say “excited!”
They’ll be so excited when their true love says, “I do”!
Or when their big fortune rolls in, or their business is thriving, or they’re rocking that bikini body … they’ll be so excited!
It seems like that, doesn’t it?
Except you won’t be.
You won’t be nearly as excited as you think.
Here’s why, and why it’s worth knowing how you’ll really feel when your big dream unfolds …
In fact, I already know how you’ll feel when your favorite desire manifests.
Am I psychic? No.
I just know how the system works.
The way you’ll feel then is the way you’ve been feeling all along.
Because law of attraction.
We can only get what we’ve been vibrating.
If you’ve been dialed on mild contentment lately, that’s likely how you’ll feel when you get the big job.
If you’ve been feeling frustration on a dominant basis, guess what? You’ll find a way to even be frustrated even after you’re partnered with your dream lover.
(I swear to you this is truth!)
I know it doesn’t seem like you could be anything other than bouncing-off-the-walls excited when that supercool thing happens!
But those things out there don’t change how we feel in here.
Rather, our feelings in here change things out there.
Our vibration creates our reality.
I’ve got a personal example for you …
Those last years I worked in corporate world were pretty stressful for me. I won’t elaborate, but anyone who’s been in corporate probably doesn’t need me to.
So, “stressed” was what I’d been vibrating in a dominant way for quite a while.
I was stressed on that job. I was stressed thinking about quitting that job. I was stressed when I was unemployed and building my own gig. I was stressed even after that gig was up and running.
(So many people wanting to work with me, not making time for self care, secretly wondering whether this could continue, figuring out how to even run a business, etc.)
Stressed. Through and through.
It’s what I did, it’s what I knew, it’s who I was.
So even when I got what I wanted (just out of sheer commitment to instructing Universe that “clients” filled my world), stressed is how it felt because stressed is what I’d been practicing for so long.
Even my successful thriving business couldn’t change my dominant vibration.
Only I can change my dominant vibration.
Conscious creators know this.
Muggles try to change life circumstances so they can then be happy. But conscious creators know it starts here within us. Everything “out there” just reflects what’s “in here.”
And we know that once we find our way to feeling what we prefer to feel, the external morphs to match those feelings.
I got a little sidetracked, but stick with me …
This is why the key to successful manifesting, as Abraham says, is simply to “get happy now.”
Because the only reason we want anything is because of how we think we’ll feel when we have it. That feeling is usually some sort of happy, or relieved, or satisfied, or something along those lines.
That’s why it’s helpful to know how we’ll feel when we have what we want … so we can practice that vibration now.
That’s how we create alignment to what we want, and that’s what requires our desires to manifest.
Which is why I ask every client, “How will you feel when your big desire has come true?”
And they say, “Excited.”
Except you won’t be.
Because by the time it manifests, you’ll have been expecting it.
That’s the only way it can manifest – through your expectation of it.
And when we expect something, excited isn’t usually how we respond.
Happy, yes. Delighted, sure! Satisfied, in spades.
It might be content, proud, relieved, successful – all sorts of good things we’ll likely feel.
But excited is for things we weren’t expecting. It’s for surprises and “didn’t-see-that-coming” sort of things.
If you didn’t see it coming, it can’t manifest.
When you do see it coming, you aren’t surprised by it. You were expecting it.
So the more aligned vibration to practice is perhaps something more like believing, expecting, happy, satisfied, etc.
I’m just saying that when you think now about your big dream come true, and you think you’ll be excited – it might reveal how far away from it you are vibrationally.
Because you won’t be excited by the time it gets here in its full glory.
You’ll see it coming long before it arrives. You’ll have reasons to believe in it. It will seem sort of obvious and ‘of course’-like.
And we don’t get excited about the “of course” things in life.
We acclimate to our desires.
That’s how they manifest. We align to them.
When Meryl Streep wins another Oscar, do you think she’s excited?
Maybe happy, and appreciative, and rewarded.
But I bet not that excited.
Because that’s what Meryl Streep does. She wins Oscars.
Can you see how imagining that you’ll be so excited when your big thing happens might even keep you from it?
I don’t mean to be a killjoy, and I have nothing against excitement!
(I felt it the other day when I drove a boat on the lake for the first time! I felt it when I said yes to a new rescue dog last month!)
But I am saying that getting up to speed with what we want likely means practicing a different vibration than “excited.”
You’re going to want to dig deeper into what it will feel like when you’ve gotten used to the idea of having won that lottery, or married that prince, or dropped those pounds, or accepted that dream job.
How will it feel when you’ve been living it for a month, or a year, or a decade?
It won’t be excited. It’ll be normal. It could still be delightful and amazing and wonderful!
But excitement is usually overrated for our visualizations.
Because when you really truly believe your big dream is happening, you feel confident and worthy and content. Or something like that. I don’t know for sure what your exact feeling will be.
But I’d like YOU to know. I’d like you to know how you’ll feel when you’re living your dream come true.
And practice that feeling now.
Because nothing else will make you a better match for receiving it.
