“Hold a thought for just 17 seconds and the Law of Attraction kicks in. Hold a thought for 68 seconds and things move; manifestation has begun.” Abraham-Hicks, “Ask and it is Given”
The Magic of 68 Seconds
We are vibrational beings. We and everything else on this planet emit our own unique vibrations out to the Universe every day. In fact, our brains are actually transmitters and receivers of vibration or energy. There are particles flowing from our brain and out to the Universe. Thoughts are Things!
Focused attention on a thought or feeling (negative or positive) for more than 17 seconds is long enough to attract like thoughts; thoughts that prove you “right,” thoughts that agree with the original thought or feeling.  It is not necessary to “police” your thoughts at all times, but beware of sending out vibrations that are not in line with your thoughts and desires. When you do, try to shift the vibration of the thought a bit higher to avoid giving attention to the unwanted thought.
When a thought is held, with feeling and belief that the desired result has already occurred, for at least 68 Seconds, the Universe has no recourse except to bring back, through the Law of Attraction, things, events and people with that same vibration.
The Law of Attraction says that what we put out to the Universe is returned to us. This has been stated in many ways: karma,
what goes around comes around, what you sow so shall you reap. It is a Law. The vibration that you emit attracts people, events, and circumstances of the same vibration. In this way, each of us has the power to manifest our goals and desires by paying attention to the thoughts we think or the words we speak.
Think about what you want. Talk about what you want. Don’t spend much time on things you don’t want. Shift your thoughts back to what you want!
How Does It Work?
Think about your goal or desire. Does the thought of it make you smile? Good! Then you are in the Sweet Spot. This is a goal that resonates with you, something that Excites you and that you can Believe in.
Once you are in that high vibration, focus on the feelings of having what you desire. Use all five senses! Feel, Smell, Taste, Hear and See the future, just the way you want it. Use your imagination!
Turn the timer over and maintain focused attention on your goals and desires until the sand runs out. You have just started the process of manifesting things from thoughts!
