“My mother used to say to me, and I had 6 brothers and sisters, and she would send us out the door every morning, saying: Expect good things, and I expect to hear about it at the end of the day”– Sonia Choquette
I’ve promised You yesterday, that today you will practice being the magician of your world. So here it is:
Day 10: Expect Good Things To Happen To You
How To Do This: Today, as You get out of your house, expect only good things to come your way. Throughout the day keep coming back to this state of curiosity and joyful anticipation of the wonderful things that life has prepared for you. And at the end of the day, share them with your loved ones.
My experience with this: Even before seeing the interview with Sonia I have practiced a similar exercise to put myself in a joyful anticipation at the beginning and throughout my day.
It was by asking the question “How does it get any better than this?” You can read the whole article here.
So as you’ve seen there, it is very useful to ask this question especially in those moments when You feel stuck or frustrated that things don’t work out the way You want it.
Asking the question puts us in that state Sonia is talking about. It opens up new ways and doors through which the Universe will bring to us whatever is best in that moment and in a higher plan.
Often we feel stuck in front of a door that is closed. And because we are so close to it we can’t see the window or another door that has just opened.
Asking “How does it get any better than this” gives us:
- the perspective and
- the detachment of the current situation and
- creates the space for the “better version” to appear.
And it also creates that space of presence within ourselves, the one that actually allows us to be in contact with our gut feeling, our inner voice or Divine intuition.
So this is my take on today’s exercise. Check out yesterday’s suggestion in case you missed it.
Like Sonia’s mother expected to hear about the good things at the end of the day, I invite You to share with me in the comments what good things happened to You today.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s exercise.
With all my love,
PS: Check out the interview with Sonia Choquette. The story about her mother and expect good things mantra is around minute 7. But if You have more time, watch the whole video, it’s lovely and inspiring. Enjoy! 🙂
