has anybody tried this '17 seconds of pure thought' method by ABRAHAM HICKS?
n if yes does this work?
i am a great follower of the secret but the secret says visualise and feel as if you have already received what you want.
but the 17 seconds theory say imagine something for 17 seconds n keep that thought without changing its form
i tried to focus for about 17 seconds on small numbers but slowly either i see the colour changing or the form.
Abraham says that a thought reaches a combustion point at 17 seconds of pure undiluted focus. It draws another thought to it and it is exponentially more powerful. At the end of another 17 seconds, 34 seconds total, the next thought combusts, and by Law of Attraction, evolves to a higher level of energy. Again another 17 seconds to 51 seconds continues the process, and finally, if you can continue a pure thought for 68 seconds on any given subject, it will be on its way to manifestation. The key word is pure, meaning positive focus, strong energy, no resistance; to not slip into sloppy thinking. how to make this process easier?
n doesnt this contradict the secret ?
There is an old belief found in some meditation circles that maintaining a state of presence in-the-moment, awareness, (or whatever else people refer to it as) with complete absence of thoughts, will result in the practitioner becoming one with God, the universal mind, the Tao, (or whatever people name this All-That-Is-One). This would be like the beginning stage of enlightenment & might only last for an instant or a few seconds. Regular practice of awareness through meditation would lead to longer times (a misnomer, since there is no experience of time in that state) experiencing states of enlightenment.
The idea is that the state is reached through being aware & present, rather than "stopping the thoughts", since "stopping the thoughts" would require thought processes.
It is believed that one can only maintain this state (at a more advanced level of enlightenment) for 21 days. After this period the spirit would be permanently in a different "reality".
Does this work also at the level of maintaining a single thought for 17 seconds as a method of manifesting? I do not have experience with this technique, however it could be considered that you are doing the same process as I suggested, only with a focus on a thought rather than on awareness - presence. If the 17 second awareness process can "manifest" a state of oneness with the "Source", it might be feasible that the 17 second thought process could "manifest" the object of the thought.
Only 60 seconds total?
This video is an hour long, that means watching this once aught to do the trick. According to what Abraham said, watch it once and you'll be a billionaire. My mind in on money and how wonderful money is the full hour. So far I'm waiting for my windfall.
Here is the video, as you said Abraham said keeping your mind only that short time works. This keeps your mind focused on recieving for an hour!
Abraham/Hicks is usually the best metaphysical advice. There has to be something missing to this advice.
