"When people ask us how long does it take for something to manifest, we say, "It takes as long as it takes you to release the resistance. Could be 30 years, could be 40 years, could be 50 years, could be a week. Could be tomorrow afternoon." ---Abraham Excerpted from the workshop: Cleveland, OH on July 11, 2000
This is a quickie this week because a) you're probably very busy getting ready for the holiday and b) I want you to pay attention to the Spiritual Law posts that are popping up this week.
There's a difference between manifestation and materialization. I believe that everything is manifested as soon as you ask for it but that materialization may take longer depending on your resistance.
The manifestation is the Universe creating what you've "asked" for and bringing it to your door.
Materialization is when you open the door and receive your gift. This is what takes release and allowing. When you have resistance, you can't get the door open so your "gift" sits on the front porch just waiting for you to let it in.
It is your job to release the resistance and allow the Universe to give you what you want.
As Abraham says "it's all working in the way that it's supposed to be." Just as in your life, everything is being created as you're asking for and if it's not the way you'd like, then you're asking for the wrong thing. And believe me, you are asking for it and the Universe is delivering. You just may not be aware of what you're asking for. The Law of Attraction works whether you're aware or not. And the Universe is delivering regardless of whether you're aware or not. Thus, it behooves you to become aware of what you're thinking and feeling and ultimately what you're asking for.
You are in the place you choose to be in. If you're reading this, then you've progressed to a different level and should be able to manage the Law of Attraction so that you really do receive all you desire.
Enjoy your week and Happy Holidays
