Prosperity Trap: Expectation vs Entitlement


When you expect to receive what you want, is that good manifesting or is that entitlement?

I’ve had several clients over the last few weeks really tussle with this question. Their thoughts go something like this: “If I expect to have what I want, then I’m that person, the one who thinks I’m better than everyone else, the one who thinks they should have everything they want. A spoiled brat.”

Hmmm. At what point in our lives did we mix up having wants with being a nasty person?

You are hard wired to want; this is what moves the Universe forward. As you discover a new want, you get into alignment with the vibration required to allow that want into your life. As a result, you expand and so does the Universe.

Expectation is part of the process of getting into alignment. You have a positive belief, an expectation that what you want is on its way.

So how did we get so out of alignment with expectation?

We have all had experiences with people who use their ability to have what they want as a weapon; people who measure their inner worth with their outer “stuff”; people who view material collections as a measure of their perceived power. We see them as selfish and heartless and disconnected from the real world.

We say, “I never want to be like THAT,” and just like that, we’ve created a separation between us and how the Universe delivers our good.

Stepping into expectation doesn’t make you a person who thinks you are entitled.

Stepping into expectation allows you to dance with the Universe. Stepping into expectation requires you to deepen your trust and belief in the Universe. Stepping into expectation allows you to hold a positive belief the Universe has your back.

Stepping into expectation is about expansion — of you, your Divine connection, and your heart.

If this is a conversation that resonates with you, I invite you to ask yourself a couple of questions:

~ In my life, whom do I view as entitled? In other words, who am I trying not to be?
~ How am I like/not like that person?
~ How can shifting into expectation serve me?
