Expectation is a useful tool when you are manifesting. You must expect it to happen in order for it to happen. You must have an unwavering belief and expectation followed by a quiet, patient anticipation. That is it.
Be thoughtful and specific about what it is that you want to manifest whether it be a relationship, career goal, more money, better health, etc. Then, be specific as you focus on what you want. Write down your goal and be specific about what it is that you want. Allow the image of already having it materialized permeate in your mind and focus intently as you marinate on the image. Notice every detail in your mind’s eye and notice the feeling that it gives you.
If you feel any emotions like apprehension, insecurity, hopelessness, or feelings that it won’t come true, then pull yourself back from focusing on it so specifically. Only focus as far as the feelings allow you to remain on a higher vibration. Once you feel any bit of resistance, pull back and shift your focus, even if that means shifting to a different subject that makes you happy. When you are ready, you can place your focus back on the subject of what you want to manifest.
It is very likely that you will have to see some results of your manifestation beginning to materialize before you can get to a comfortable and believing spot. That is ok. You can take baby steps. Or, if you are feeling confident, you can take a leap. Follow your emotional vibration and allow that to set the pace. Amen.
