Starting your day with a positive expectation is the foundation for the rest of your life.
Your first thoughts after waking set in motion what you are attracting to you right at that moment and what you attract at that moment sets out more intentions to God/universe to receive more of what you just experienced.
It’s like this… if you wake up to a loud alarm clock and think or actually do throw it across the room, mumble a couple expletives, then you have put out the request to receive more to curse about. You may now get up and smack your knee or toe into the bed post, find no toilet paper in the bathroom, run out of coffee, can’t find your keys, car won’t start, late for work, boss chews you out, you tell the boss off, lose your job, lose your spouse and on and on! Now that was a little extreme, especially if it happened all in a day, but it does happen all the time — it’s just spread out over months and years.
So starting your day with positive expectations is extremely important, unless you don’t like your job and spouse! Assuming that you do want to keep both and even enhance your experiences with them, setting the positive expectation for the day starts before you fall asleep the night before. It is difficult for most of us to wake up all bright eyed and bushy-tailed, instantly expecting great things to happen. The key is setting that intention just before falling asleep.
While lying in bed, review the positives of your day with gratefulness, then intend to wake up refreshed with the expectation of something unexpectedly positive happening to you in the new day. The key to that powerful bedtime ritual is having the feeling of gratefulness and combining that with the intention of something unexpected. The gratefulness will attract more to be grateful for. The unexpectedness leaves it open for God/universe to give you what you “really need” and not what you may think will do the trick.
It is powerful and works extremely well, but don’t take my word for it! Prove it to yourself; you will be glad you did and so will everyone else in your life!
