Abraham Hicks used to say in their seminars that following the Law of Attraction, every 17 seconds that you give your attention to things you want or don't want, you are bringing it closer and closer to manifesting. And if you give it your attention for 68 seconds, then manifestation is almost definite.

However, in their latest seminars, they have mentioned that this time (17 seconds to bring it closer and 68 seconds to manifest) is gradually getting shorter and shorter which means that less time is required now and even less time will be required in the future for things to manifest in physical reality.

How do you explain this acceleration in the manifestating process?

I am intrigued. Do you have a reference to the Abraham-Hicks teachings that discuss this?

Your question is a little misleading, I think. Abraham actually say that 17 seconds of pure, uncontradicted thought is what matters. Anyone can sit and think about anything in a muddled way for extended periods of time but that achieves little. Offering pure, uncontradicted thought is much more tricky.

Based upon my personal experience, in general, some things takes longer to manifest than others. I had an experience, that was quite amazing recently, and I know the Universe was saying to me to make a choice, of course I did make a choice. But the point that I am trying to make is that it came sooner than later. It is all good, but sometimes you have to wait much longer.

Another point I want to share based upon my experience, is that the Universe will manifest for you your wish when you are ready to handle the responsibility that comes along with it. Example: I had to finish College first, before I was able to manifest the job of a Supervisor working in an office.

I really don't know if manifestations are coming quicker,but it appears that time is shorter than it was before.I borrowed this paragraph out of Shirley MacLaine's wonderful book Sage-ing While Age-ing.

"Time is speeding up.For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse of the earth has been 7.83 cycles per second. The military have used this as a very reliable reference.However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over twelve cycles per second.This means,although it's not confirmed,that everything is happening more quickly-twenty-four hours now occur in the equivalent of what used to be sixteen hours."

I not sure if this has anything to do with your question, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

This is entirely speculative. There is more than one Schumann Resonance frequency; the second overtone is at 14.3 hz, but there are others above that. These frequencies are stable, and probably have been so for millenia. They have nothing whatsoever to do with how fast time passes.
