There is always a time delay in manifestation. Things do not just appear because we think of them, and it’s a good thing. Imagine if every thought that popped into everyone’s mind became real. Yikes! That is why manifestation takes long-term focus. The time delay is a built-in safety mechanism for our untrained, distracted minds.
We are so distracted throughout the day, we have very little mental focus. We are relentlessly bombarded with external stimuli every moment we’re not sleeping. It is nearly impossible to follow a train of thought from beginning to end. We are in a constant state of reaction, a permanent defensive posture.
When we start directing our life and not reacting to it, we gain control of our future.
