The Law of Attraction Time Delay

By Beth and Lee McCain

Don’t tell us you haven’t thought of it. Why does it seem to take so long to manifest certain desires? Why so easy to manifest a parking spot or a penny on the sidewalk, but so hard to manifest that beautiful home and the financial security you want? And is there a time delay in manifesting and creating your desire into the physical?

Some things do have a time delay involved when it comes to the Law of Attraction but there is a reason for it. Remember that when you focus on something and put energy into it the Universe is going to bring you what you focus on or better.

The Universe must be able to move mountains, situations, and people to bring you your focus. But it isn’t only about your focus, it is about everyone who will be involved with your focus as well. They also are focusing and creating whether they know it or not and the Universe is lining up every vibration to match. We call it the Universal dance.

The Universe is also building a solid foundation to your desire. How does it build? Through your repetitive focus, thoughts, and emotions of the desire that you want.

Think of each thought, emotion, and focus as pieces of lumber. Each piece is another piece in building your desire. The more pieces, the more solid the foundation. Now toss in a couple of pieces of lumber that are gnarled, old, and rotten. These represent your negative thoughts and emotions. If they are directed at your desire as a lack thought then you are taking an old piece of lumber and making it part of your desire, right along with all the beautiful lumber.

Which pieces of lumber will build a house of desire? And which ones will be responsible for the lack of a solid foundation? This is what can cause a time delay as well. When you are mixing your focus from lack to abundant, back and forth, back and forth, the Universe is doing it’s best to follow your focus. Can you see how this can slow down the process?

Something else that causes a time delay in applying the Law of Attraction intentionally is attachment.

When all you think about and focus on it ‘when, when, when is my desire coming to me,’ you have formed an attachment to your desire. And that will keep your desire at arm’s length because you are creating an emotion of when, when, when frustration and impatience that the Universe picks up on and brings right back to you.

Finding pennies or finding a parking spot has no attachment to them. It isn’t a feeling of life or death when you ask for a parking spot, so therefore you ask and look for it just knowing you’ll find one and you aren’t worried about it. The non attachment brings it straight to you. If you are attached, the attachment feeling is like a rock in the pathway. Remove your rocks and just enjoy and know.

Focus on what it is that you want, with joy, and just know and trust that the Universe will bring you what you want or better. Each time you focus on your desire see happiness and see it as if it is already happened and thank the Universe. Build a solid foundation full of wonderful focus upon your desire and let the Universe bring to you what you envision without any time delay.
