The timing of a manifestation is a frequent coaching topic with my clients.
Why is it taking so long? When will I get what I want?
“Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, ‘Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,’ that is the perfect vibrational stance.” —Abraham
Does this offer you a new way to look at the timing and unfolding of what you want?
Let’s break it down and see how this wisdom can be applied in a practical way to your life. Beginning with… “Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you.”
Before my obsession with all things Law of Attraction, I was always trying to make things happen according to my timelines and deadlines. I want X by the end of the month. I want Y by the end of the year.
Usually these timelines and deadlines were not high vibe. Instead, they were stressful. They created tension and impatience. These timelines and deadlines often meant I postponed feeling good.
There is so much relief to be found in trusting the timing of the Universe.
The Universe knows the perfect timing for what you want. Often we simply cannot see this from our limited vantage point.
“The Universe knows the perfect timing for all those things you want…and will find, through the crack of least resistance, the best way to deliver it to you.” —Abraham
Would you feel a lift in your vibration if you were to trust the timing of the Universe?
Abraham goes on to say… “Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are.”
Are you very aware of where you are?
- I’m very aware of the stack of bills.
- I’m very aware of my relationship status.
- I’m very aware I’m in the old job that I want to leave.
- I’m very aware I’m unhappy with body.
When you are very aware of where you are, your focus is on what-is. This means the vibration you are offering reflects what-is rather than matches the vibration of your desire. Which means you are not in receiving mode.
Let’s take a specific example of being very aware of where you are.
I work with a number of entrepreneurial clients. Let’s say one wants to grow her business. She wants to increase her reach. She wants to expand her offerings. She wants more in her business—more money, more clients, more impact.
Her desire is a beautiful thing. And yet, my client is very aware of where she is currently.
Her thoughts are more about the current state of her business and her current reach and her current revenues than on what she wants. Because she is very aware of where she currently is, her vibration is frustration, impatience, sometimes worry, at times insecurity.
Consider what circumstances and conditions are a vibrational match to frustration and impatience, worry and insecurity. Because my client is very aware of where she is, she’s not vibrationally aligned with her desire and not letting what she wants happen.
What about you? Are you focused on what-is to such an extent that you are vibrationally unaligned with what you actually want to manifest?
So far we’ve talked about “Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are.”
Abraham then says: But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order.
This is a doozy for many of us. As in, many of us simply do not believe this.
We do not trust that things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order.
- Well, then why is my marriage still the way it is?
- Why hasn’t the new house manifested?
- Why is it taking so long to get pregnant?
- Why do I get job interviews, but not offers?
Sometimes, perhaps even often, the way the Universe lines things up for us doesn’t make sense as those things are happening, as they are unfolding.
We can’t understand why this is happening or that isn’t happening. We don’t understand why things are taking “so long”.
We live—and therefore create and attract—from this energy of things not happening as fast as they should, in the order they should, in the way they should.
Let me put that another way. Abraham is saying “all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order.” The opposite of this is things are not happening as they should be happening. Things are not unfolding in the right way or at the right time.
Notice the significant vibrational gap between these two beliefs:
- Things are happening in perfect order
- The right things are not happening or not happening in the right order
Both beliefs have a vibration, but boy are they different!
The first belief—things are happening in perfect order—is downstream and reflects flow and allowing. The second belief—the right things are not happening or not happening in the right order—is upstream and reflects friction and resistance.
In your heart you know you want to create and attract from a downstream vibration, but how are you actually showing up vibrationally?
- Are you in a state of allowing or a state of resisting?
- Are you living in a state of flow or friction?
Abraham goes on to say: “And if you will relax and begin saying, ‘Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,’ that is the perfect vibrational stance.”
There’s a word at the beginning that’s easy to overlook—and that word is “relax”.
The reason that one little word is so important is the energy of relaxing is the energy of allowing. Relax is downstream. Relax is flow. It’s ease vs. stress. It’s calm versus anxious.
When you relax, you invite and align with expansion—which means you align with possibility. In contrast, when you are stressed and anxious and feeling low vibe, that energy absolutely constricts what is possible.
“The timing of manifestation depends on how much practice you give to feeling good versus the time you practice feeling bad. Say to yourself, ‘I’m on the path, it will reveal itself to me at the perfect time.’” —Abraham
And so from the delicious energy of downstream ease, you say, “Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding.”
Let me pause before going on to the very juicy bit that follows.
- When you say and think and believe everything in its perfect time, you are able to enjoy the journey you are on right now.
- When you say and think and believe everything is unfolding, you can appreciate the journey you are on to where you want to go.
You’re not stressed and tense until you get to the destination of the promotion or raise, the new house or baby, the relationship or perfect body. You are not head’s down, nose to the grindstone, feeling gunky, impatient, not happy until some future goal has been achieved or shiny penny acquired.
Instead, this is about trusting the timing, feeling the support of the Universe, and actually appreciating the unfolding.
That, my friends, is a delightful energy to create and attract from.
Which brings us to the jewel in the crown: “‘And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,’ that is the perfect vibrational stance.”
Satisfaction with what-is and eagerness for more is an LoA slogan I often use to guide me. I appreciate being reminded to tap into this energy, this perfect vibrational stance.
When you can enjoy where you are now, even as you have desires that have not yet manifested, when you can enjoy where you are today, even as there are goals you want to achieve and shiny pennies you want to acquire, that is the optimum point of attraction.
How have you been thinking about the timing of your manifestations? Would you feel relief in the belief things have not yet manifested simply because the timing isn’t yet perfect?
Would you feel a lift in your vibration if you were to shift your focus away from what-is?
What if you were to relax? Relax in your life. Relax in relation to your desires. Relaxing is a wonderful energy for attracting what you want. It’s the downstream energy of allowing.
And as you relax, you can say to yourself, “Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding.”
Last but certainly not least, will you tap into the energy of one of the best LoA slogans ever: Satisfaction with what-is and eagerness for more. Enjoy where you are now in relationship to where you’re going. This is the perfect create stance—in other words, the perfect point of attraction.
