Expect the best, the Universe is working in your favour!
The dictionary meaning of the word “anticipation” is “the act of looking forward, visualization of a future event or state”.
If there is one thing that differentiates people who have pleasant experiences in life to those who constantly struggle, is the act of “anticipation”. It may seem to be a very passive act. However, it does have a very significant influence on what shows up in our life.
What am I trying to say here?
Am I saying that people actually anticipate or expect bad things to happen to them. Yes they do! Maybe some of them don’t realise it, but they are doing so all the time. Take an example. You are all excited to attend an event, one that you have been looking forward to for a really long time. You step into the car and utter the words:
“Hope we do not get stuck in traffic!”
Does that mean you want traffic? No, of course not. However, by going to the possibility that there may be traffic and you might get stuck, you are sending your energy in the direction of blockages. Take another example. Have you noticed, that the person who is always concerned about “stains” on their expensive couch ends up staining their most expensive outfit or piece of furniture or clothing without even realising how and when it happened. If you try and recollect, there’s at least one person in your life whom you find stumbling on such blocks all the time. Or maybe you are the one!! Note that the Universe doesn’t understand the word “no” or “don’t want”. It listens to your emotions and feelings.
The emotions and feelings you go through when you are “dreading” something might go wrong become your point of attraction. It is your thoughts, feelings and emotions that make up your energy and you attract what you keep in your energy. So while paying attention to the action you take, it’s crucial that you pay attention to your thoughts, feelings and emotions about the future. What are you anticipating? What are you getting ready for? Does that mean if one anticipates a great outcome, it is guaranteed to happen? Maybe or maybe not. That’s not even the point. The point is about keeping your energies open to receiving by creating a mental and emotional space of anticipating the best possible outcome. So even if a particular event doesn’t go as anticipated, and there will be times when it will not, you are still in the space of creating a great experience. The energy you are embracing leads you to yet another inspired thought or action. This is how life starts becoming joyful and is filled with pleasant surprises.
The Universe is responding to your energy and is wanting to work in your favour. Become aware of this benevolent force and be watchful of what you are “anticipating” to happen in your life.
