HJ: The universe will bring to you what you focus on and resonate with — it’s that simple. It works, every time, without fail — however, and this is key, is that it happens on the universe’s terms and not yours. That means it could take 5 days or 5 months and you will get exactly what is perfect for you and what you need — nothing more and nothing less. You still choose what you want to manifest, but you do not dictate the terms in which it appears in your life. And, in fact, the more you try to control the results, the less likely it is to manifest as you want it and the more ‘hands off’ you are — the more your trust that the universe will bring you a more perfect version of what you need than you could have ever imagined — then that is what you will find occurring time and time again.
The truth is that the universe is mind-bogglingly intelligent, structured, complex and perfect. Life and all existence is operating at such a high and intricate level of divine structure that it gives the appearance that everything is completely random. This is a major part of the illusion we are all born into. Take a minute to try and imagine what the actualization of the manifestations of 6 billion people all occurring simultaneously would like… it would seem chaotic and rightly so as the universe balances every last thought — both positive, negative, neurotic and every spectrum in between — of every last person on the planet. Again, it would seem chaotic and random, because understanding that level of complexity is beyond the capability of the mind. However, that is the incredible wisdom and consciousness of the universe — it is NOT random — in the words of Albert Einstein, “God does not play dice with the universe.” Everything is happening in a perfect divine dance and in relation to the law of attraction, you will get exactly what you focus on and resonate with, determined by your personal energetic and emotional vibration. This will manifest out of the framework of 6 billion+ simultaneous manifestation all occurring simultaneously in a perfect, divine dance. Truly amazing.
If the law of attraction has not been working for you, meaning that you have been attracting things you don’t want (because the law of attraction is always in operation, it brings you whatever you focus on, whether you perceive that as good or bad is your choice), then you are not actually aware of your own vibration and focus clearly enough to begin realizing more precise and desired effects. I see so many people struggling with the law of attraction and talking to them for just a few minutes makes it abundantly clear that they really do not have any idea that they are focused on and resonating with things they don’t want. The law of attraction works without fail every time. It goes both ways — attracting what you and what you don’t want (if you have not yet mastered your personal focus and vibration). If it’s not working for you the way you want, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work, it means that you still have inner work to do to get a handle on your own conscious perception. As within, so without.
Got 68 Seconds?
That’s all it takes to get your wish! Keeping your focus on your dreams.
By Esther and Jerry Hicks | Heal Your Life
WITH ONLY A FEW SECONDS of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation. The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it because you are attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with.
Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now, as that focus becomes stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of the vibration will become further reaching.
And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.
When you repeatedly return to a pure thought, maintaining it for at least 68 seconds, in a short period of time (hours in some cases or a few days in others), that thought becomes a dominant thought. And once you achieve a dominant thought, you will experience matching manifestations until you change it.
- The thoughts you think equal your point of attraction.
- You get what you think about, whether you want it or not.
- Your thoughts equal vibration, and that vibration is then answered by the Law of Attraction.
- As your vibration expands and becomes more powerful, it eventually becomes powerful enough for manifestation to occur.
- In other words, what you think (and therefore feel), and what manifests in your experience, is always a vibrational match.
You Have the Ability to Direct Your Own Thoughts
You have the ability to direct your own thoughts; you have the option of observing things as they are, or of imagining them as you want them to be—and whichever option you choose, whether you are imagining or observing, is equally powerful. You have the option of remembering something as it actually occurred or imagining it as you would prefer. You have the option of remembering something that pleased you or remembering something that did not please you.
You have the option of anticipating something you want or anticipating something you do not want. In every case, your thoughts produce a vibration within you that equals your point of attraction, and then circumstances and events line up to match the vibrations that you have offered.
You have the ability to place your attention wherever you decide, so it is possible to distract yourself from something unwanted and put your attention upon something wanted. But when a vibration within you is one you have practiced a great deal, the tendency is to continue to offer the vibration in the way you have been practicing it—no matter how much you wish it to be different.
It is not a difficult thing to change the pattern of your vibration, especially when you understand that you can do it a little bit at a time. Once you have an understanding of how vibrations work, how they affect your experience, and, most important, what your emotions are telling you about your vibrations, now you can make steady, fast progress toward the achievement of anything that you desire.
