All my life I have been hearing the phrase "things take time". There is a certain part of me that wonders about the truthfulness of this statement. Particularly now since I know time is more illusory than "real".

Yes, in this world we do observe cycles and regular natural occurring phenomenon like the seasons, etc. But when we want to manifest a something in our there a pre-determined amount of time it must take to manifest ...and is this "time" absolute or relative to our expectation (alignment) of it ?

You manifest what you are in alignment to vibrationally. When your vibration matches your desire, it manifests. So sometimes your manifestations match your desires and when they don't, look at your vibration. EFT can help change your vibration so that you attract better things as you stop attracting the negative things. So the length of time your desires take to manifest depends on the time it takes you to come into vibrational alignment with it.

thank you fairy princess ...i have just started to use eft... i already see the benefit

I am glad to hear that. EFT is awesome!

the meaning of manifest is; to be clearly apparent to the sight or understanding.

if we are correctly aligned, the manifestation is always immediate - for the manifestation to become clearly apparent to the sight usually takes longer, there are no time limits.

when we ask ourselves a question and have an immediate hunch, gut feeling, intuition of the answer then that is an immediate manifestation. when we think of a future event and immediately feel the answer, that is a manifestation sometimes named precognition.

when you attach an expectation of time on the manifestation, you begin putting limmits and expectations on them, then they will be in more of an anxious and frusterated energy. Even at the beggining of the fourth density, you still learn manifestations. it takes a little while to get used to the new freedoms and it is quiker,,much ,much quicker, but you at the end of the fourth and the evolution into the fith density, become complete and utter masters of what we will think of as an instant manifestation. what limits us here is our filters . If you are interested in the exact diffrences in et densitys and the mannefestations in each, this is a series that i did in channeling that my source explains much much better . obviously start at 4th and go through. here is the list.

love n light,

The answer to your question is a positive “Yes.” Although, based upon what you are creating, the manifestation will appear to be longer, but in essence the totality of the creation is already made, and you will have to wait to receive it in its' proper time.

Bible Scripture (King James Version): Matthew 17:20

For verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

There is no pre-determined time to manifest but it certainly does take time to do it. How much time is up to you for how badly do you want that which you want. Are you prepared to do the mental as well as physical work to manifet it.

Most people think that you just think about something and it will apear as if by magic. Not so even though it does sometimes hapen to some people, it is an extremly rare phenomenon, as they were already vibrationaly aligned with that which they wanted. To manifest anything you first have to have a burning desire for it and than to be prepared to work for it.

Mental work of visualisation and afirmation as well as geting of your bed or chaqir and actualy gowing towards that which you want. Do reaserch on what you want and beleive it is already yours.

Only when you have convinced your subconscious of that truth will you manifet that which you want providing you did the mental and physical work to acheive it.

Does that take time? Yes it does but how much time is entirely up to you.

No is the simple answer. Why ? because there is no time as we understand it.

There are an infinte number of life tracks or states in existence. They contain every possible scenario, thing , situation and storyline. They are infinite and are in their finished state.

They need no adjustment, fettling or improvement. They need no justification, and are constant .

They contain every crappy scenario and every joyfull one.

They arnt growing,maturing or developing.They ARE.

They dont get manifested the instant you ask or desire them. THERE ALREADY THERE.

There not moving away from you or towards you. There static.

You move between these states or lifetracks. You move onto them and animate them.

The flashlight of your consciousness illuimnates them.

Yes good things do take time, for example when you make Spaghetti you cook the sauce all day long for many hours before it is ready to serve. Now imagine manifesting something if it takes that long for a jar or can of sauce to taste good or a Pot Roast to cook takes many hours, how long do you think it may take to manifest something?

Some things can come quickly like Florance Scovell Shinn is a prefect example of quick manifestations of money and other things, but she also shows examples of things that took time to come as well.

There is a funny example of how we do not want instant manifestation on the movie the Secret. Ester Hicks (Abraham) just got done saying "The time buffer is a good thing" then it showed this guy get a post card with an elephant on it, he thought about the elephant and next it was in his living room! lol

That was the example they used in The Secret not my example.

(23 Jul '11, 17:45) Wade Casaldi

@wade-a manifestation is a materialisation. materialisation means to come into being. a being is something, such as an object, an idea, a symbol,that exists, is thought to exist or is represented as existing. a real live elephant and the representation of an elephant (in this case a drawing or photo of an elephant) are both manifestations.

(23 Jul '11, 17:56) blubird two

@ Blubird You are making this too complex. You are saying he must have been thinking about an elephant postcard to receive the post card to then think of the real elephant and receive the real elephant.

(23 Jul '11, 18:13) Wade Casaldi

@wade-in our physical reality no one can instantly manifest a real live elephant or a post card for that matter. how does a good painter paint? he first manifests it virtually (a clear image of the painting in his imagination) then manifests it on a sheet of paper. if the virtual image and the painting on the paper are perfectly aligned they possess identical characteristics. from an energy point of view they are interchangeable.

(23 Jul '11, 18:48) blubird two

This is exactly the point I was trying to make. Also exactly the point the movie was trying to make, watch the movie The Secret, I am not sure that scene is in the expanded version without Ester Hicks though.

(23 Jul '11, 19:30) Wade Casaldi

@bluebird you said "no one can instantly manifest a real live elephant or a postcard ". My question is Why Not ? Abraham Hicks says "Argue for your limitations and you'll get them "
