Trust. It's one of the most important factors for manifesting your desires into reality.
In the words of Henry David Thoreau:
"... if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
Or as another wise sage once said, "According to your faith is it done to you."
What we expect, we experience.
Of course, everyone has at least one experience where we expected something to happen, but it didn't.
In my book, Choose To Believe, I took a whole chapter to address this apparent flaw in the "Beliefs Become Reality" equation.
The short explanation is that there are multiple levels of belief, and our deeper beliefs are more powerful than our surface beliefs.
When reality seems to contradict our beliefs, it's because there's a deeper belief in conflict with the surface belief, and the deeper belief is what created the unexpected event.
Learning to trust that the things you want will manifest is such a huge topic that we'll need more than a single email to address it.
I plan to give you 3 different ways to develop that trust.
The first has been hinted at already in this blog series.
Allow yourself to indulge in positive experiences.
The more you indulge yourself, the more your emotions naturally shift to the positive, and the easier it is to trust that things will work out the way you want.
I'm sure you've heard this idea before. It's not new. It's one reason why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Rich folks tend to allow themselves more indulgences.
Now, I'm not saying spend the rent money on a big blow-out party and/or vacation. I'm saying take what I've already shared with you, and focus your attention on any sensory pleasure and allow that experience to fill your mind on a regular basis.
Once or twice a day for a few minutes at a time is actually enough to gradually shift your belief system to begin to expect more positive things to happen.
It's even more effective when you're deeply relaxed.
Another option that works on the same principle is to engage in guided meditations. Good ones will help you relax deeply and visualize a series of enjoyable experiences related to what you want to manifest.
Tomorrow, I'll cover an even more powerful way to develop a sense of trust in the Universe.
