The teachings of Abraham speak of “The Emotional Journey” that a person must take before he/she actually receives the object of desire. The emotional journey is when you are getting ready for and aligning with this desire. Some people say, “I’m going to get a new job,” and then they do the steps that lead them to it with ease, and they actually get the job. Others say, “I’m going to get a new job,” and then fill their minds up with self doubt, and spending a large portion of their time talking about how hundreds of people are applying for it, and only one person will actually get this job. This person is unlikely to make progress.
What’s the difference? It’s in the emotional journey from Point A to Point B. The first person is completely aligned about getting the job, so there is little resistance to having it. The second is full of reasons why he won’t get the job, and so he won’t. If a person truly believes that he deserves something good, expects it to happen, and also really desires it, then it will come.
Do this exercise for yourself and you will see where you are about having belief, expectation, and desire. Think about something you want that you really believe you will manifest, maybe even easily. And think about another thing you want that you believe would be more difficult. Track the outcomes of each. I know if you follow your feelings, it will feel good to manifest the easy one, and it will feel slower and it will be more frustrating as you want to manifest the harder one. It’s about focus, and the belief, expectation, and desire though. Really explore what your beliefs are so you can drop the limiting beliefs on each topic that aren’t serving you.
Then focus solely on the good feelings you want from the desire–that is what will drive you to reach the goals you want to achieve. If your desire is to get a new car, feel that feeling of driving it in the now, and spend a few minutes, even just once a day feeling that great feeling, as if it’s already manifested for you. This is what I mean by focus. Do not entertain all of the naysayers that say you can’t have a new car. Do not worry about how you will get the car, or how you will pay for it. Keep the focus on the feeling of having it and how great it feels to be driving it, parking it, washing it, how easy your life is with this car. Once you start practicing this way of thinking (the vibration of a new car) you are on your way to it.
If your desire is just making a little more money, like $100 or $200 more a month, that is easy to ask for. Just think about how good it will be to spend that money in the way you desire, such as allowing the children to do more activities, or putting a few more dollars into savings. Feel how powerful you feel, as you have the ability to use money to your advantage each month. The money is just passing from person to person, spreading abundance to others after you. You are part of this global economy that is always changing and creating more, so there is enough for everyone. It’s easy to feel good for most of the day, receive the good you deserve, and then pass it along to the next person. You can happily receive all the good things you want.
Remember, don’t be wishy washy and go back and forth about your desire. If you really want something, don’t tell yourself you can’t have it.
Much love, Jen C.
