Expectation vs. Reality | 6 Ways to Deal with Expectation in the Real Life

Let’s talk about expectation, hermetic laws and life growth because we want to master it!!!

Hello again. 

Reality versus expectation was, is, and will be an addiction to see online. Even though all these media are in our faces all the time, we still have difficulty dealing with them in life. Have you noticed it? Just me? 

The worst part for me is when you know you expected something bad to happen and you still get upset or med. Why you do this with us? (That is the question of the time). 

So, let’s recap a few things to do or not so we can break as much as we can of those expectations, then we will make a pact. (By the way, I am listening to Alanis Morissette writing it and I highly recommend you to listen to it while reading. Because you will love or hate it and you will be able to see what do you expected of the indication). 

Expectation brings all the funny feelings that don’t help us. Stress, anxiety, sadness, and others, depending on if you pass the moment the expectation was waiting or you are before it. 

So, maybe the romance becomes a necessity, intelligence becomes overpowering, calm becomes stillness. And I will need to prepare you here for the perspective we will take. I will talk more about hermetic laws in another post, but here I will talk about the perspective of the law of vibration, the third law of hermeticism. 

But what is it? There are more laws involved, but being practical, everything is in movement, this includes you, the music that plays to you, the news on your mobile phone… And what you are will bring to you things that vibrate the same. Let’s think that everything that happens, happens because of you. That the reality you notice is yours, and yours only. We will need to take this as true here, you can and must disagree, but to this post let’s go with it ok? 

So, everything that happens is a reflex of what we are. And maybe won’t be easy for to you access everything you are, everything you received once as information. Because millions of things happen every second and our conscious mind won’t be able to show everything, so many things will be under the carpet. So, Am I saying we need self-knowledge? Yes. It is one step because if you look into learning about your beliefs and fears and all that may be in the shadows you may be able to change what you are and your reflection as consequence. Be conscious is hard, but will be the biggest step, it is a clear job of change the vibration. (I am not a fan of those exoterical words like vibration either, but let’s put the ego away to keep going). 

So we know that even if you already felt disappointed you can learn about yourself. You can stop and ask yourself why am I feeling this way? Ow, it is because of that. But I wanted this, or something similar. Maybe I don’t, maybe I fear it and this is happening. You will find your narrative with the past event and luckily learn about yourself. Am I saying that secondly, you should use every moment we feel something to understand more about what we are? Yep!

Well, but how can I avoid expectation without letting myself in complete indifference of the world? Because I know if I go here or there I am being impacted by the world and if I and doing the jog I will impact and probably get what I work for. But how to not fall into expectation before something, mainly something I want. How to want without expecting? (And that is the million-dollar question). 

Imagine this scenario:

  1. You will wake up on the new moon day and work with this energy to ask what I want. Go for it, you may imagine a crazy scene. You do your magic at the right time, with the right amount of energy. You felt assertive and happy, you enjoy the practice because you feel focused and complete. You used water or a plant, or fire or wind or all elements. Or maybe, you don’t think about all those symbols, you just set and put intention. You felt good!
  2. You wait for a sign in that same day, you look everywhere. Maybe the time will be with repeated numbers. But you looked so many times that even if it happened you doubt if the sign was real. It is night and nothing, you sleep and the dream is crazy, no clue. Maybe I should do it again. Maybe I need to ask harder. 
  3. I did, I asked harder. But I feel weird. But it will work. Nothing happens and without you realize, the expectation threw the bait on step 2 and you are still obeying it. 
  4. It doesn’t work. 

No see the scenario without expectation: 

  1. You will wake up on the new moon day and work with this energy to ask what I want. Go for it, you may imagine a crazy scene. You do your magic at the right time, with the right amount of energy. You felt assertive and happy, you enjoy the practice because you feel focused and complete. You used water or a plant, or fire or wind or all elements. Or maybe, you don’t think about all those symbols, you just set and put intention. You felt good!
  2. You feel good!
  3. You feel good!
  4. You got it!

It is the simplicity of living life that makes life worth living. I listened on the movie The Way the quote “you don’t choose a life, you live it”. When you try to be something is when you lose your life, the power of being lays in the present and can not be ignored if you want to become a master in manifestation. And, when I talk about the hermetic laws you will understand more about it. 

The anchor you find to the present moment will help you get deep in the power of being a master and not a follower, don’t get me wrong, you will still be an apprentice and this is different to be a follower. Even if you find a master out of yourself, a guru, it will keep you as a follower until you discover your power. It will keep putting you on tests until you understand recognize the master inside you, then it will be able to treat you as an apprentice.

How to be present, you asked?

  1. Music
  2. Write
  3. Breath
  4. Meditate
  5. Watch a movie
  6. Read

All those actions must be followed by attention, if you watch a movie without attention on you and in the movie change the action. You can be present brushing teeth because it has so many different sensations in this action. The freshness of the toothpaste, the temperature of the water, the brush bristles in your teeth, your tongue, and your gum, the sound of the water or in the brushing. When a simple moment like this is a moment of anchor, man, you went far! I am happy for you! 

Well, I hope this post helps you understand more what you should study and that we will only use expectations to laugh at memes online. I will recommend this book so you can learn more about this philosophy: hermeticism

Much love,
