Timing Can Impact Manifestation
How do you feel when you focus on
positive intentions, but they do not manifest? If you have been
manifesting with trust for a long time, you probably feel let down,
unsupported, or even betrayed.
This is a
difficult topic and a difficult experience. I know I have been there
First, ask yourself, “Have I done the
inner work to discover and transform anything within me (old
beliefs, thoughts, fears, etc.) that could be limiting my ability to
manifest what I desire?” If you have done the work to clear your
limiting thoughts and beliefs then it’s time for step two.
Secondly, reassess how you phrase your
intention. If the phrasing is very narrow or specific, you could be
getting in your own way. It is fine to state your desire and why it
is important, but it is equally important to include phrases like “I
intend for this or something even better.” The Universe may have a
different, better, or broader way to meet your intentions instead of
the limited route you have in mind. Create an opening for
alternative solutions, and be open to what comes. My preference is
to add the phrase, ‘thank you for this or something even better,’ to
all of my intention work.
If you are still
unable to manifest your intentions after these two important steps,
then the answer may lie in our limited ability to see outside
Sometimes, despite positive intentions,
the desire of the Universe, and spiritual helpers to make it happen,
it does not happen. There you have it. Not what you want to hear. I
don’t like hearing it either. But it is true.
In the process of co-creation it
is important to intend your desire and
trust that the Universe will
bring it forth into manifestation. Often it is easy to overlook how
in order for something to truly manifest, all the puzzle pieces need
to be aligned just right. You, and other people who need to leave,
arrive, move, sell, etc, need to be in the right place for your
intention to materialize. Why is this important?
We all live in a
world of choice. Everyone is constantly creating their destiny
through their thoughts and emotions, even if they don’t realize it.
So, when you intend and trust, sometimes the answer part of the
equation is still doing something else – which appears to cause a
timing flaw for your situation.
Let me give an
example: You intended for a perfect career position. There was a
need for you to be in this new position by a certain date due to
financial reasons. The date gets closer and closer, yet there is
still isn’t an opportunity that fits.
It would be easy to feel disappointed. “I
trusted and it did not happen. I am a good person, why me?”
What could be the reason? There is a
perfect job, but it did not become available in your time frame, due
to the other people who are involved. For instance, the person who
was planning on leaving the job that was perfect for you, suddenly
decided to buckle down and try to make it work for another month, or
the head of the HR department had an accident and was out of
commission for several weeks.
understanding these details, which we are often not privy to, it is
easy to feel dejected and let down. But when this happens, you are
still taken care of, even when it isn’t how you thought you wanted
it to be.
In this scenario, you might find a less
desirable job that allows you to support yourself, and then a few
months later the job that was always destined for you becomes yours.
Timing also has
to do with your spiritual journey. Maybe it is all coming together
in a certain way to help you master patience and trust. Maybe it is
creating the space to have another important experience that allows
you to grow spiritually. Maybe your higher self is telling you that
this idea is not the best path for you or for the highest good of
all. These concepts should be explored when a situation like this
It is important to focus on your vision
of what you desire to help bring it forward. If it does not seem to
be manifesting, allow the Universe time to work out the kinks. Your
heart’s desire will manifest in physical form, but sometimes it is
on the Universe’s timeframe, and it might be different from what you
expected. Remember that no matter how things turn out, it will
always be perfect for you and your journey!
