Hey there guys/gals. What’s going on? Welcome back to my 30-day personal development challenge/case study! Before starting Day 18, you may have a look at my Day 17 activities and findings (if any). Below you will find more of my thoughts/musings as I listened to Abraham Hicks. I’ll elaborate on the key points from her videos, using my own words and based on my understanding.
17 Seconds to Manifestation???
There are only two choices we have at any moment in life. Feel better, or feel worse.
Abraham’s teaching include this: If we can hold a thought for only 17 seconds, another thought similar in vibration (feels as good) to the first thought will come to us. So that thought now becomes more powerful and ‘sticky’. If we could take that first step, doesn’t matter how we managed it, law of attraction will bring more like thoughts. This is what we learn not just from Abraham, but many, many law of attraction materials.
After 68 seconds of doing this, we’ll generate enough momentum to shift our vibration. But we have to ‘do the work’. And we have to do it now. If we wait, we may never get to it.
How to Hold a Thought
I’m not sure how the interval of 17 seconds came about, but when you try to hold a thought deliberately for the first time, you’ll realize how difficult it is.
We can start by thinking: Now I know about the law of attraction, I can have anything I want. I do have quite a few things on my list and oh… it’s going to be great! Having all the things I’ve ever wanted. Experiencing the coming of them, one after another. Life is going to be delicious from now on.
I feel so grateful sitting here full of beans. No sickness of any kind, no rustiness. I feel good! My training has gone well, if I do say so myself. I felt great yesterday, I felt great during the warm-up just now, and I feel great now, really warmed up. I think the match is going to go really, really well.
You don’t need to know all the details. The key is the feeling. If the details come at you while you’re in the middle of your thoughts, great. But you’d stress yourself out if you try to come up with the details. If you picture yourself in a quaint little café, you don’t need to know the name of the café, you just need to experience the excitement of meeting the person you’re waiting for, or reveling in the anticipation of what you’ll be doing after lunch or where you’re going. You don’t need to know the name of what you’re eating (some French-sounding food?) just that it is incredible. It looks delicious, it tastes delicious, oh it just fills your senses with every bite.
So Long! See You Again!
Thanks for being here. Remember that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, or 17 seconds in this case. Stay tuned for more chapters, and meanwhile, stay healthy and remember to feel good. Let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks a lot!
