When you use the Law of Attraction, the things you don’t really care about manifest almost immediately. You simply think about them once, forget about them, and then suddenly you have them.
But when it comes to the things you really want to attract, it takes forever.
You make list after list of what you want, getting as clear as possible.
You think positively.
You do everything you’re supposed to…and still nothing.
So how long does it take for the Law of Attraction to work?
Is it even possible to know how long it will take for the Law of Attraction to work?
Well, yes, in a sense.
You see, it all depends on you.
Whether something appears instantly or takes years to come into your life, depends on how attached you are to the outcome.
The things that appear quickly in your life do so because you don’t care about the outcome.
It’s not because they are easier to manifest…
…but it is because if you never get them, it’s okay.
Sometimes it might be a shirt or a favorite food that will appear quickly. All you did was think about how nice it would be to have it and then went on about your life as if it wasn’t a big deal, as if everything was already okay exactly as it was.
And then before you knew it, what you wanted was there…everywhere, in fact. People were talking about it, sales ads for it appeared all over the place, you received dozens of e-mails related to it, and then, suddenly, you actually had it. The whole process was effortless… like the entire world conspired to give it to you. You even had little clues – the overheard conversations, the e-mails – to let you know it was on its way.
But the new job, the relationship, the things you really want and care about, they still haven’t appeared.
You’ve done everything the gurus say you should do…asked…visualized…imagined it as being so real, you could taste it…
But you’re still looking around and not seeing what you want.
Why is it taking forever for the Law of Attraction to work?
Well, there are four important things to remember here:
1. Because your thoughts create your reality, when you notice you don’t have what you want or that it is taking a long time for it to manifest, you’re creating more moments in your life where you don’t have what you want.
You think you don’t have the new house or new job… you create not having them.
You think it’s taking forever to manifest your soulmate… you create it taking forever.
2. Every time you think the Law of Attraction is not working and start to look for ways to make it work… every time you tell others you need help manifesting because you can’t do it… every time you think you’re not doing something right…
…you’re telling the Universe you don’t trust it to bring you your desire.
Your job is to trust the Universe.
You’re supposed to ask for what you want and allow your desires to appear, trusting that they will.
3. What you want to attract is not really taking forever to manifest.
Sometimes there are factors involved in creating your desires that you’re not aware of when you ask for them.
These factors can prevent you from instantly receiving what you want.
For example, if you desire a new car, you want more than a certain make and model. You also want it to run well, to be affordable, to have a great time purchasing it, and so forth. These elements also have to be created. And no matter how badly you want your car right now, however long it takes for everything to come together is exactly the right amount of time needed.
4. When you feel nervous, anxious, impatient, or scared, you are pushing away the very thing you want.
That is why it is so important to detach from the outcome.
Detachment is not caring whether you’ll get your desire.
Detachment is being okay with things being exactly as they are now.
Detachment is feeling hope that you will get what you want, but still enjoying the process that takes you from where you are now to where you want to be.
When you enjoy where you are now and live as if you already have you desire, the sooner your desire will manifest.
So, ultimately, you decide how long it will take for the Law of Attraction to work and however long it takes is exactly the right amount of time for you.
