The Illusion of Time
I had been contemplating the idea of both time and force when it comes to consciously manifesting something. Primarily because I am very aware of patterns now as I manifest. You may have heard the phrase “Time is just an illusion.” Well, the way in which most people view time is by hours, days, minutes, months, and years. They look at the past and the future in relation to the present through the construct of time. That is a limited view and not at all accurate. However, that is what we have been conditioned to believe as others through history have attempted to define time. The result has been a more definable way of calculating time, the way in which most of us thought time was determined.
A couple of days after determining that I wanted to dive a bit deeper and write, speak about time and force, Joseph Alai posted a video on his YouTube channel. His definition makes perfect sense. It has now been a couple of weeks and I was led to a show on Gaia called Intuition, A Journey to the Origins of the Universe. So, I now have the answers I have been seeking. At least for now!
If you are consciously manifesting something (health, wealth, love, happiness, etc.) then I want to challenge you to change the way that you view time. Do not allow yourself to feel anxious or constrained by time. Simply know that if you focus on what you want, align your inner speech, your outer speech, and your thoughts with your desire, that it will manifest. Disregard time and simply focus on your desire, have absolute faith and you will experience it within your reality.
Now let’s talk about force. I have learned through observation and feeling that force is counter productive when it comes to manifesting. Neville Goddard spoke of the Law of Reverse Effort. He stated that you must control the direction of the movements of attention. But you must do it with the least effort. If there is effort in the control, and you are compelling it in a certain way you are not going to get the results. You will get the opposite results, whatever they might be.”
I can say from my own experience that this law is true. It is up to you to test it though and form your own assumption. Personally, I find the most joy in thinking of the end of fulfilled desire in a most relaxed way. If I close my eyes to visualize and feel that I am forcing a visualization, then I stop. Oftentimes it is easier for me to get a feeling of what that desire feels like without a vivid picture. I find that I can also see the image of my fulfilled desire in the middle of the day, in a daydream. A lot of the times without closing my eyes but just sitting and recalling the fulfilled desire as though it is a memory. It is done and remembering brings in that feeling of fulfillment and joy.
I have also found that if I attempt to force something, I can feel it. It is an uncomfortable feeling, like salt in a wound or nails on a chalkboard. I then feel an intense desire to just be still, relax, go within, and remember who I AM. The awareness of knowing when I am focusing too much externally is so unbelievably valuable.
Do not force anything. Relax and know that all that you desire exists. Go back to the basics of manifesting that I mentioned in my last podcast, YouTube video, and blog post. Be mindful of your inner speech, your thoughts, and your outer speech so that they align with your desire. Disregard the concept of time, use whatever technique feels good to you if you need one, and do so in a relaxed state of mind. Remember, that everything that you desire exists and is already yours.
