“You get what you expect in life.Expect great things in life. Live your best life.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita

I received this from a reader:

"Good morning Taylor,


Just got in from work. I work til midnight. My last few nights at work I have been feeling some strange vibes from coworkers. Subordinates and fellow supervisors. Don't like what I am feeling. Tons of negative stuff. Back stabbing gossip. Bad stuff. I find the deeper I explore myself and work on mindfulness  the more I am feeling it. I feel like I am becoming  overly lucid. Maybe ignorance is bliss?  Do you find that  to be the case?"

And here's how I responded:


I should have warned you. And now you can't go back....

Yes I too felt this way and here is what I learned.  As always, take what you want and leave the rest.

An unexamined and unaware life is a life unlived. So you are on the path.

You don't want to go back to ignorance, believe me.

And this may take a moment to take in but hear me out. In one of my new inspiration card decks a card reads, "My thoughts determine which people come into my life and how they behave once they get there."

Re – read your email to me. You say that you often say "XYZ" about people who work as officers. So of course this is what you are attracting.  The Universe can only give you what you expect. And it is.

I know I know that this belief came from "the truth." And what you have observed. But you are ready to take it to a new level. Stop looking at the "what is" and create what you want. Start talking about what you want, or don't talk about it at all.

I'm not advocating denial. Or repression. If you must talk about it, do it in less than 17 seconds and then let it go. Don't dwell. What you focus on is what you create more of.

And this on my part will take less than 17 seconds: that sucks what they are doing --so ignore it and be your sparkly shiny self and watch what happens.

Ps look for the magic. You sent your email to me at 1234. You are in alignment."

And my reader's response:


"Thanks as always. Only you will believe this. I have reread your email a bunch of times and it makes sense. I just went to my box of your inspiration cards to retrieve  the one you suggested. I open the box look at the first one it is, " What I expect is what happens". I flip it over and bang," My thought determines which people come into my life and how they behave once they get there."  CRAZY!

The mindful path may not be the easiest however I believe it is best!"

Have the best day ever!
