Humanity has much fear of going beyond their own perceived limitations. For each time they look within themselves, they see only what they want to see. To help with their own understanding of themselves, many will often bring other people into their energy that mirror for them either their own likes or dislikes. Many times these mirrors are very bright, but most of the time humanity pretends not to see them in that light. The expectations that most people place on themselves are also the same limitations that they often place upon others.
Conditioning from peers, family and media also plays a part in the human drama. When certain individuals have a specific expectation, that is exactly what they draw into their energy. This continues to keep much of humanity in their own comfort zone. Until humanity is willing to escape the comfort zone they have created for themselves and break through these expectations, they will never be able to change and grow to the fullest degree. It is only when one has the purest of Love for themselves, can one harness that power to break down the walls built up by these expectations.
How in your life are you limiting yourself by your own expectations and conditioning? Do you Judge others? Do you expect a specific type of person to look, act or talk a certain way? Examine your own expectations… Would you go to an overweight nutritionist? Would you take medical advice from a doctor in their twenties? Would you take spiritual advice from a corporate big-wig? These are just some examples of how humanity limits their own experiences by creating a preconceived notion of how things should be before they even experience the event.
How are we in the world of Spirit going to be able to lead and guide you where to go when you already have a specific idea of how that should be happening? You may never know how many times in your life have you missed out on good advice or the help you really needed because you choose to be influenced by your own expectations or the conditioning of another.
Many individuals are skilled in knowledge and gifts that are not always reflected by their outer visage or by their first impression. We in the Spirit world can use any individual at any time to bring you a message you desperately need to hear, but if you are too busy listening to your Ego, then we have a much more difficult time bringing you that help. Think about all of the expectations that you have about specific types of individuals in your life. All of these expectations are judgments that block you from a deeper understanding of yourself and keep you at a distance from others and their own knowledge and expertise.
What about those closest to you, what do you expect from them? What if they choose to live a life that does not match your expectations? Would you honestly love them for all that they are? Or would you try to change them to think and feel and act as you do, or as you would like them to be? Quite simply, if you do not truly appreciate the individual for who they are, then you are not dwelling in unconditional Love.
God, The Ultimate Being, does not judge others as humanity does. God is pure Love and this energy does not have room for any human emotions. When you look within and examine the judgments and expectations in your life, you will be one step closer to fully embodying that true unconditional Love of God.
