What if we made an effort
to be happy while we waited
for our abundance to show up?

I am absolutely terrible at waiting for anything! I am incredibly impatient, constantly check on how my seeds are “growing” and in general, can’t stand to wait!  But when Law of Attraction teachers suggested I could feel happy while I waited, my energy totally shifted,  and I started to practice this new way of being.

So why should we try to be happy while we wait for anything in our lives? Because we have to wait anyway, being happy is a lot of fun, and being happy will speed up the manifestations of what we’ve asked for… It’s a simple formula to follow, but of course, it’s not easy to do.

If you could be happy while you waited for all the abundance you have asked for, your vibration would improve, and when your vibration improves, you attract more abundance into your life.

But… I’m anything BUT happy when
I am waiting for something…

I know, but it’s worth an experiment!  Waiting in and of itself makes a lot of people unhappy, impatient, cranky etc. so let’s move that vibration out of our lives and replace it with something better.  The vibration of being unhappy or impatient does not match the vibration of abundance, so it’s important to start feeling and vibrating in a place that actually “matches” what you are asking for, or else “it” (abundance) stays away.  This is the simple explanation of Law of Attraction.

Here’s what I know…
People who are”happy while they wait”
attract more success and abundance!

So it’s time for the yes, but section of my newsletter to help us identify what we need to clear out of our energy systems with EFT/Meridian Tapping. Here are some typical yes, buts that surface when I suggest in workshops that participants feel happy while they are waiting for their abundance to show up…

(1) Yes, but… waiting actually makes me unhappy, so how can I possibly be happy while I wait?

Waiting by itself shouldn’t necessarily make us unhappy.  More importantly, this feeling of “unhappiness” is a tappable issue with EFT.  When you get that itchy feeling of waiting and being impatient, you could use EFT and tap on the sequence of points to relieve these emotions.  “Even though waiting makes me unhappy…”

(2) Yes, but… I don’t trust that being happy ahead of time will do anything for my abundance manifestations.

If our focus is on getting the abundance, we actually slow down the manifestation process.  So try not to see the point of this exercise as to “get” what you want, but rather to feel better while you wait.  A lot of surprises might show up along the way, I know they have for me.

(3) Yes, but… what if it doesn’t feel “right” or normal if I try to feel happy while I’m waiting — I’d rather worry!

Is worry a habit?  A necessity?  Do you feel unsafe if you are feeling happy?  Scared unless you are worrying? All great tappable issues.  “Even though I’m a worrier and don’t know how to stop it…”

(4) Yes, but… trying to feel happy isn’t “true” if I have to wait, so aren’t I just pretending or lying to myself?

Pretending is not a bad thing, in fact it’s a primary piece of visualization exercises.  We are talking about looking for things to make you happy since you have to wait anyway!  When you look for reasons to be happy, you usually find them… try it.

I am sure that at least one of the above yes, buts resonates with you.  Are you holding yourself back in your life because of any of these yes, buts or layers of resistance?  If so, the yes, buts can all be formed into tappable issues with EFT/Meridian Tapping.

The question I invite you to ask yourself is:

Why are you still allowing yourself to wallow
in unhappiness while you wait for your
abundance to come into your life?

Sometimes it is challenging to read the above statements and uncover your blocks, so see if any of the questions below help you uncover what’s blocking you from making the effort to be happy while you wait…

(1) What’s the “downside” to being happy while you wait?

(2) Does it feel “unsafe” to be happy while you wait?

(3) Are you more comfortable/ familiar with being unhappy?

(4) Are you afraid of happiness?

(5) What is the “upside” of being unhappy every time you’re waiting for something?

These are all powerful questions that I recommend you answer as best you are able… once we know the upside of being unhappy and impatient, we can make healthier changes and choices.  So try and figure out,

How does remaining unhappy
every time you have to wait
for something “serve” you?

Maybe you don’t believe that staying “the same” is serving you, but it must be, or else you would be committed, even inspired to change.

It’s your choice… Choose to
be happy while you wait, and
enjoy the vibration of abundance!

In my newsletters, I like to include the benefits I have found to what I am proposing to my readers.  Below are my favorite benefits of being happy while you wait:

(1) Being happy while you wait for your abundance will create energetic space in your life to have more creative ideas, personally and professionally.

(2) Being happy while you wait for your abundance will raise your vibration immediately!  And when your vibration is higher, you attract other things matching this high vibration… you know the cycle.

(3) Being happy while you wait for your abundance will allow you to  make better decisions for yourself since you’ll be in a more relaxed place to start with.

(4) Being happy while you wait for your abundance to show up will speed up the manifestation process, even though that’s not the “point” of this exercise!

As Law of Attraction teachers say — it’s all energy. So change your energy by being inspired to look for things that make you happy, even while you are waiting for your abundance to show up. It will automatically invite the Universe to help you create more abundance right now.

Raise your vibration by choosing to
be happy while you wait for your abundance
and watch the Universe join your efforts to succeed!

Remember, the Law of Attraction sends you situations that have the same energy of the vibration you are putting out… so when you are intending to focus on things that make you happy while you have to wait for whatever is going to show up in your life,  the Universe will bring you additional experiences that will make you happy.

Below you will find EFT/ Meridian Tapping setup phrases to help you feel happy while you wait.

When you change your vibration,
you will change your life.
Go ahead, be happy while you wait…!


The EFT SETUP Phrases for this topic are as follows:

While tapping the karate chop spot on either hand, repeat these phrases out loud, (or change the words to fit your exact situation).

“Even though I hate to wait for anything, I accept my feelings about this issue.”

“Even though I’m afraid to be happy while I wait for my abundance to come in, I accept how I feel and who I am.”

“Even though it doesn’t feel safe to feel happy ahead of time, I accept all of me now.”
