    Is it real?

    Can I INSTANTLY manifest things?

    I want a nice new shiny laptop and phone:D

    Those are persoanlly for me, but i have things i want to do for the world:)


    So, is it real? If I think about something, it will appear?


    Much thanks

    Instantly, erm... not like you think.

    I guess the best way to look at it is...

    When you believe that something is truly available to you, your unconsciousness instantly starts to become more aware of the 'things' that will lead you to obtain that something. It is then up to you to train your consciousness to become more aware of the intuitive signals that your unconscious mind will throw up at you and to recognise that these things will lead you to that something you wish for.

    So, yes, it does start to happen instantly, but as for physically manifesting something like a laptop or phone, I think you may be pushing your luck just a little, although you never know, I'm sure there have been occasions when someone has believed they can "win that prize" or whatever and it did come true straight away. In fact, just the other day we had a staff development day which also involved splitting into teams for a quiz and a practical exercise; with prizes for the winning team. Even though our team presentation was, I felt, not as good as everyone elses, I did truly believe that we would win, and we did. We got the highest score on the quiz and the highest score on the exercise. ;)

    Would you really want to? How many times have you really wanted something and been disappointed, only to realize at a later time how fortunate you were not to have received what you wished for? Ever pay attention to the lyrics of this Garth Brooks song?

    Just the other night a hometown football game
    My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
    And as I introduced them the past came back to me
    And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

    She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
    And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
    And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
    I'd never ask for anything again

    Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
    That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

    She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
    And I could tell that time had changed me
    In her eyes too it seemed
    We tried to talk about the old days
    There wasn't much we could recall
    I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

    And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
    And then and there I thankedd the good Lord
    For the gifts in my life

    Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers

    Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
    That just because he may not answer doesn't mean he don't care
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

    Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers


    Not that we shouldn't strive for those things we think would be to our benefit. But we should be wildly grateful that most desires take time to manifest and don't come to us instantly otherwise we would all end up with a boat load of things we thought we wanted and only later discovered how really bad they were for us.

    As things work now, once we start the process of manifesting we still have time to observe the process, fine tune it, make adjustments, or even abandon our plans if we come to realize they really aren't in our best interest.

    But if things were instant... Think of driving down the road and having some rude driver cut you off and give you the bird for your trouble. In your mind you reflexively think to yourself how you hope that idiot rolls his car around the next corner... Ooops, too late to take it back. His car rolls and maybe he dies because you manifested something on an impulse, before your brain actually kicked in and tempered your desires.

    Instant manifestation would be great if we were intelligent and disciplined enough to always use it properly. Personally, I'm nowhere near being ready for it and I can't think of too many other people who would be, either. Given that instant manifestation would put me at the mercy of every whim anyone had towards me, just or unjust, I'm completely satisfied that manifesting doesn't come instantly.

    I don't think it likes that. Perhaps it changes the way you think. Sometimes, you need a positive mind set to make things happen. Just like doing business. You need to do something right before income starts flowing in. Otherwise you are going to lose money. Wikipedia describes law of attraction has to do something with physics. Well it might be, but to me it is something to do with your psychology. If you are happy, you feel you have more energy so that you can finish some "impossible task".

    If you are that optimistic, it will come. But it's all in the power of one's mind.
