In the same way that there is not an instant wanted thing manifesting in your experience, there is not instant unwanted thing happening in your experience. It takes some adapting to vibrations. If you’ve managed to hold anything, wanted or unwanted, for 17 seconds — there is a coalescing of thought that takes you a little closer to the vibration of whatever you are turning your attention to.
Those 17 second increments, are not discernable. And that’s why, when you get into that place, it feels like instant manifestation. Just like when you get into that negative place, it feels like instant manifestation. It’s like, “Where did that come from? Seemed like it just sort of snuck up on me,” instead of snuck up over a long time.
