“Expectancy: Your attitude toward the present builds your experience of the future.” I read Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now repeatedly before I deeply absorbed the reality of now as the only moment you can take any action. Now-moments strung together become your life and create the rolling threshold between your past and your future. Recently an Akashic Records client came wanting to know where she would land based on her current path. The records encouraged her to respect the power of gestation, to stop opening the oven while baking the cake. It can take time for enough energy to build for your next leap. Patience and peace support each other.
“Hold a positive outlook.” Byron Katie says, “When you know whatever you get is what you need, life becomes paradise.” While paradise may seem out of reach at times, knowing you always get what you need invites relaxing into now. Expectancy dedicates itself to joyful anticipation, to full aliveness and as much positivity as you can bring to each now moment. You can even practice expectancy of expectancy, the idea of life evolving and expanding along with you.
“Stay miracle-minded and open to surprises.” Expectancy stems from positive curiosity, wondering what wonderful surprise life might bring you each day. Your wildest imaginings may pale in comparison to what the universe could bring you. Part of expectancy involves trust, aligning yourself to whatever occurs, knowing each moment leads to the next perfect experience. Miraculous surprises and synchronicity await you.
Expectancy differs from expectation. Expecting a specific outcome often leads to disappointment. Years ago when I asked the universe for a change which led to my intuitive healing abilities I serendipitously left everything unspecified. Before my request, I never considered doing healing work and yet now I can’t imagine anything more aligned to my soul’s purposes. Receptivity and openness partner with expectancy whereas expectation insists the universe must kowtow to its demands.
How do you release expectations and shift into expectancy? How do you make peace with extended gestation times?
