How to Wait with LOVE for the Things You Want

"Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety."

- A Course in Miracles

Sometime the Veruca Salt in all of us takes over:

“I want the world. I want the whole world. I want to lock it all up in my pocket. It’s my bar of chocolate. Give it to me now.”

No, it's not always easy when we want something and aren't getting it right away. The good news is that if we can wait with LOVE we

can

manifest anything and everything our heart desires (even a goose that lays golden eggs). Here's how ...

STEP 1: Be really clear about what it is that you actually want. Have you asked yourself: What is it that I want (and be specific)? Why do I want it? How will I feel when I have it? 

STEP 2: Believe your desire is on its way. It is. Really. I promise. This is where you need to flex your FAITH muscles. " Try saying to yourself "I know that ________ is on its way" or "I am in the process of attracting ____________." Even if you don't believe those words yet, "faith it before you make it." Say those mantras even if they don't feel real. Eventually they will, and this will bring your desires to you faster. We learn in the law of attraction that the belief, or KNOWING, that our desire is on its way will either speed up the manifestation or slow it down. BELIEVE it. Then, when we are in a place of knowing our desires are on their way, we can be open to receiving.

STEP 3: Relax. Feel good knowing your desire is on its way (remember, it is!). We can let the universe dream with us. We know that we are exactly where we need to be, and that - yes, cliched as it sounds - everything happens for a reason. While you are waiting, the BEST thing you can do (besides relax and have faith) is to find the feeling place that you are trying to attract. Let's say you want to attract money. What will it feel like when you have themoney you want? Abundant? What can you do RIGHT NOW to feel abundant? Want to attract better health? How will it feel when you are healthier, stronger and more full of energy? What can you do RIGHT NOW to feel that way? The more you get into the feeling place of where you want to be, the more the universe will respond and give you more of that energy back. Hello desires!!! 

A big part of achieving our desires is going with the flow. Abraham-Hicks (super leader in Law of Attraction teaching) use the analogy of a stream: Life is a stream and we are in it. When we deny our inner guide or try to control life too much, it is like we are trying to swim upstream. When we let life be easy, we can ALLOW life take us to some amazing places. Yes, it's important to keep your head out of the water, your eyes and ears open. But enjoy. ACCEPT where you are in the stream. Feel good NOW and feel good knowing all your desires are all waiting for you downstream. Let the forces of life take you gently to your desires. No need to fight it.

STEP 4: While knowing and dreaming are important, we do live in a physical universe, which means we need to take INSPIRED ACTION to lead us to our desire destination. It is awesome and necessary to get clear about what you want to achieve/have/be/do. You then have to help the universe help you. What does that mean? It means listening to your intuition, your inner guide, inner spirit, angels, god, that inner voice inside you that is love (whatever you feel good calling it). That voice will let you know what to do - return that phone call, go for a walk, talk to a stranger, read some blogs, send out your resumé, agree to that blind date ... 

A beautiful friend reminded me that often our greatest strengths come from our greatest challenges. Trust that the universe has a far greater plan for you then you have. Smile. You are in good hands.

I am holding space for all of you and your desires. If I can be of any help with your manifesting journey, please be in touch.

Love and Miracles,
