Abstract:  Defining expectation and how to use it wisely. Addressing the possibility of disappointment, anger, shame or guilt when our expectations fail to come in the forms, times or places we were expecting. Understanding the nature of desires being realized and the things to remember as we embrace the process. 

“There is a season for sowing and a season for reaping and they never happen at the same time” Bob Proctor

The word expectation originates from the Latin word expectationem, an awaiting. In modern times we think of expectation as a strong belief that something will happen, a belief that someone will achieve or experience something. We understand that expectation is part of the invocation process for manifesting our dreams. Many fear that their expectations will leave them disappointed. Some feel anger, shame and guilt that their expectations are coming in forms, times or places they were not expecting. What if we use expectation wisely and let go of thinking that our dreams must manifest in a certain form, time and place?

A great example is a young woman named Sandra. Sandra loves reading books, meeting new people and learning what she is passionate about. She cultivates new perspectives and gets excited about exploring  new possibilities. She notices that if she practices staying connected with herself and Source her life keeps revealing the new experiences that ignite and support the next steps in her journey.

Questions we can ask; “Are we allowing the fun and enjoyment of receiving each step in manifesting our full vision?” “Are we bypassing our ability to embrace the multi levels of our consciousness?” “Are we cultivating our wisdom in how we think, feel and take action?”

Bob Proctor, well known author and speaker, reminds us that we can lessen any disappointment if we understand that “There is a season for sowing and a season for reaping and they never happen at the same time”. Our desires are much the same as the seeds we plant in the ground with a gestation and incubation time. Knowing that physical and non physical manifestation is governed by the same laws, we can learn how to tend, nurture and give our expectations attention in the same way that we would tend our seeds. Letting go into the process while taking appropriate action allows our creative power to design our lives without continuous disappointment.

In support of the creative process we can…

  • Connect with self and Source to allow obstacles to get out of the way. 
  • Embrace the wisdom that there is always an abundance of what we want and need. 
  • Keep asking questions about the nature of how to fulfill our expectations.
  • Not be limited by our past. Each moment we are offered a clean slate.
  • Go as far as we can envision while also understanding that we do not need to have all the answers. We will know how much further to go once we get there.
  • Use our thoughts and emotions to set up the vibrational environment for our seeds to grow. 
  • Draw support, ideas and inspiration from others around us while dismissing nay sayers and doubters who are not ready to understand what we are doing.
  • Focus on faith and trust instead of doubt.
  • Be proactive by feeling satisfaction and appreciation for what we are experiencing now, making a fertile environment for our visions to stay on track.

Life is not always the way we expect it to be, and if we keep letting go and staying connected life is better than expected!
