Today I was explaining to a friend how its best to visualize the outcome you desire along with the emotions you would feel when it happens. He told me he was afraid to imagine and get excited about a certain outcome because he didn’t want to feel disappointed if it didn’t work out that way.
What an interesting response, and I wondered how many other people fall into this trap. Have you heard any or all of these adages growing up? “Don’t get your hopes up in case it doesn’t work out”, “Who are you to dream that big?”, “Better to be safe than sorry”.
I have, and I do remember being careful what I wished for. No longer. I dream big dreams and I get excited about them! Being fearful of being let down if it doesn’t work out only keeps us stuck in the cycle of things not working out. It’s the law.
The Law of Attraction says that energies or vibrations we send out into the Universe that are joined by or attracted to energies that are of an equal frequency or an equal vibration that we receive back. When we focus on something, we create more of it, whether it’s good or bad. If we are more focused on the fear of being disappointed, then that is what we attract, more disappointment.
Be careful what you wish for by only wishing for the good things-an exciting, happy outcome, abundance, love, health and joy! Feel how exciting those outcomes will be and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
