Journey vs. Destination: emotion

I want you to think about something you are wanting to manifest. Think about something you desire.

Maybe it’s a romantic relationship or financial freedom. Maybe it’s a new job or a better relationship with your kids. Maybe it’s success in your business or a new house.

As you think about what you want to manifest, I want you to answer this question: What emotion are you after? What emotion are you really after?

In other words, how will you feel when you are in that amazing romantic relationship or are experiencing the financial freedom you so desire? What’s the emotion you’ll feel when you get that new job or have the success you want in your business?

What emotion will you be feeling when you manifest X, Y, or Z?

  • Will you feel appreciation or happiness?
  • Will you feel empowerment or freedom?
  • Will you feel passion or optimism?

I am inviting you to begin from the end, which means getting clear about the emotion you will feel when you manifest what you want.

Here’s why this is important: Feeling that emotion now—before the manifestation—is how you get in receiving mode for what you want.

Receiving mode is feeling now how you’ll feel when you achieve your goal or acquire the shiny penny. Receiving mode is about closing the vibrational gap between where you now stand and how you’ll feel when you manifest what you want.

Let me say that in a slightly different way because I really want this to land. When you feel now, when you offer the vibration now of how you’ll feel when what you want manifests, then what you want can manifest.

But if the current vibration you are offering is no where near the frequency of the vibration associated with your desire, then you have a vibrational gap. And that vibrational gap means you are not in receiving mode.

Here’s the thing: Too many of us are postponing how we want to feel.

Too many of us genuinely believe we cannot feel how we want to feel until and unless we get what we want.

That we cannot feel good until we manifest X,Y, or Z. Which means…we are not in receiving mode.

That’s often because we are making how we feel dependent on circumstances and conditions. Here are examples of what that might sound like:

  • Once I get the promotion, I’ll feel empowered.
  • I want the relationship so I feel secure.
  • Having the money will make me feel free.

“Everything you want is because you think you will feel better in the having of it.” —Abraham

You want the promotion because you think you will feel better in the having of it. You want the relationship because you think you will feel better in the having of it.

And while manifesting what you desire does feel delicious, the key to using Law of Attraction to your advantage, to being able to manifest with ease, is to go ahead and feel better now. To feel good now. To feel now how it is you want to feel.

Not later. Not only after you get what you want. Now. Feel good now.

It really is quite revolutionary to not make feeling good dependent on circumstances and conditions. It’s revolutionary to feel good no matter what.

When you are able to feel good no matter what, you suddenly have a super power when it comes to Law of Attraction.

“When you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you will hold the key to the achievement of any state of being, any state of health, any state of wealth, or any state of anything you desire.” —Abraham

When you understand the power of feeling good now.

Begin with the end in mind. You want what you want because you think you will feel better in the having of it. So cut to the chase. Feel good now.

“Your emotions are now. The way you feel is now. Your life is now. Direct your thoughts to improve your now moments, and the manifestations will take care of themselves.” —Abraham

I love that!

How you feel now is important.

Life isn’t just happening when you get the promotion or buy the house. Your life is happening right now. It’s not starting when you reach your goal or acquire the shiny penny.

All those wonderful things you are wanting to manifest are, indeed, wonderful. And it will be such a delight to achieve them and acquire them and experience them. In the meantime, it will feel so good to feel good.

Feel good on the way to what you want. If for no other reason than feeling good feels good!

And, from a Law of Attraction perspective, feeling good on the way to what you want is actually the way to what you want. Feeling good now is fuel for manifesting what you want.

“Always, when you feel good, you are in the place of attracting that which you are wanting.” —Abraham

So even though I began by asking you for the specific emotion you will feel when you manifest that you want, let’s get back to basics.

Feel good. The emotion you are after is to feel good.

We have so many names for all the flavors of feeling good. There’s joy and love. There’s positive expectation and excitement. There’s passion and appreciation.

I could go on…but the point is the emotion you are after for all the things you desire is to feel good. Every single manifestation you are after is because you desire to feel good.

So…it’s important to feel good now.

“Keep your focus on how you want to feel and let the Universe fill in the details.” —Abraham

Of course, want what you want. And, of course, enjoy the delicious feeling when what you want does manifest.

This is by no means about diminishing how good it feels to reach a goal or acquire a shiny penny or have a desired experience. The manifestation of your desires is wonderful!

This is simply a reminder to enjoy the journey to all that you are wanting.

This is a reminder to feel good on the way to what you want.

Begin with the end, as in feel the emotion now that you’re after. Don’t wait to feel good. Feel good now.

“To have anything that you desire, all you have to do is find the feeling of your desire and practice it until it is steady within you. Then, it must reveal itself to you.” —Abraham
