Expectation And Experience
by Natalie Pierson on November 17th, 2016

​“There are things known and there are things unknown, and
in between are the doors of perception.”
― Aldous Huxley



At the end of October I took a 7 day trip down to Key West Florida celebrating the day of my birth, visited one of my brothers and enjoyed a temporary slower pace of life.  It was good to get away from the business and crowded streets of NYC to recenter myself before the grand opening of Modrn Sanctuary Nomad  which is the new healing center that I am operating out of.

I am the resident Energy Specialist and Yoga teacher, offering healing sessions combining; Thai yoga massage, Reiki, Zero Balancing, Polarity Therapy, Shamanic techniques, Yoga and Meditation.  

If you are needing to shift out of emotional/physical pain, anxiety, reconnect to your heart or simply feel good in your body, trusting more in life then click here to
schedule your session.  I’d love to support you through these incredible times of change.

While I was riding my awesome purple bicycle around Key West :) I noticed the same bumper sticker on several people’s vehicles which said “look twice for motorcycles” and It reminded me of something I heard before which said if we aren’t expecting to see something specific then the brain doesn’t always perceive it.  So in the case of someone driving in a car, pulling out into traffic they may look for an oncoming car but if they aren’t expecting to see a motorcycle then this is exactly how these type of accidents are caused.  

If you’re curious about perception and expectation you can read more about it in this article.

The next day I had two private clients where I went to their beautiful home to give them both a massage.  In looking for some massage oil I was told they had some in the top desk drawer in the bedroom.  So there I was looking for it, noticing a few pens, paperclips and a very small box, but no massage oil.  My client came up to the room to look for it herself swearing the massage oil was in that drawer...  And when she looked she opened the drawer and exclaimed “here it is!”  it was in the tiny box right in front of me that I had overlooked.

Again another simple but clear example of expectation and perception.  I was looking for something bigger perhaps with different colors, a bottle more obvious and yet there was oil in that drawer but I couldn’t see the oil as my brain was expecting to see something different.

There are many examples and case studies on this subject, but we must bring attention to the power of programming.  For example If one is constantly exposed to violence, always expecting the worst situations, or thinking critically or negatively then the brain will always find or reinforce these experiences based on ‘priming’ of the brain it
will validate this reality more strongly.  

How can one see the beauty within and all around them if they aren’t even looking or expecting to see it ?  

You see, it’s quite simple..  In order to see beauty, or examples of love and loving people, environments or things, then one should EXPECT TO SEE THEM.  If one wants to experience abundance or miracles then one should expect to see them!  Affirm that it will be so!

One of the secret keys to this is to be open to how these ideals are seen and experienced though.  Be still.  Listen deeply.   Be open and be playful. Day by day, intention by intention the world you are co-creating becomes a wonderful mystery about expecting, perceiving and experiencing the miracles infinite beauty in life !  

Everything is here you just have to retrain your brain to focus on what it is you really want.

I leave you with this story as a reminder and inspiration.

According to an old Hindu legend...
..there was once a time when all human beings were gods, but they so abused their divinity that Brahma, the chief god, decided to take it away from them and hide it where it could never be found.  Where to hide their divinity was the question. So Brahma called a council of the gods to help him decide. "Let's bury it deep in the earth," said the gods. But Brahma answered, "No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it." Then the gods said, "Let's sink it in the deepest ocean." But Brahma said, "No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it." Then the gods said, "Let's take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there." But once again Brahma replied, "No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity." Then the gods gave up and said, "We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach."  Brahma thought for a long time and then said, "Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there."
All the gods agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring--searching for something already within themselves.
