How to Have that Pre-Vacation Feeling Every Day

I am about to leave on a cruise, and I can’t wait! It’s one of my favorite vacations because it provides something that we all love, and we get to spend time together as a family. No worries, no chores, no cooking, no cleaning; just enjoying each other’s company. And, of course, dolphins!

You know that pre-vacation feeling, right? That feeling when something wonderful is right around the corner, and you wait with eager anticipation.

That pre-vacation feeling is actually the final stage of any manifestation. Your vacation isn’t actually here yet, but you know that it’s right around the corner, so you can take pleasure in it before it fully manifests. This sense of eager anticipation comes from KNOWING that your desire is about to manifest.

Your doubt and uncertainty are a thing of the past. The tickets are booked, you’ve taken the time off work, and all that’s left is to pack your bags. It’s this certainty that allows you to take so much pleasure in your desire before it manifests. When you KNOW that what you want is going to happen, you can just sit back and enjoy.

It’s easy to enjoy your goals when they are about to manifest, because the evidence of them is all around you: It’s easy to believe you’re going on vacation once the tickets are booked.

But most of the manifestation process happens before you can see any physical evidence of it. It’s harder to believe when you don’t yet know how you’re going to pay for those tickets. If you can believe that your vacation IS a reality even before you know where the money to buy the tickets is coming from, you speed up the process of manifestation; you can have that same sense of eager anticipation throughout the entire manifestation process, instead of just waiting for the final stages.

What if you could find the same level of belief in the early stages of your desire manifesting? What if you could enjoy your goals with the same eager anticipation right from the very beginning?

When we first have a goal or a desire, we don’t know how it will manifest, and that causes doubt and uncertainty.

If we follow the teaching of Neville, and remember that “every desire comes with its own perfect plan for self-expression”, we take the pressure off ourselves to figure out the how. Just as I trust the ship will arrive in the Bahamas without knowing how it happens, I can trust that there is a path to my desires, even though I can’t see them yet. This allows me to have the same sense of eager anticipation through every stage of manifestation.
