The Secret Key to Law of Success # 10 Think Accurately
The secret key to the Law of Success #10 is to Think Accurately. All your creations, plans, achievements are begun as thoughts. Your mind is like a garden. It can be groomed and weeded into a cultivation of beauty and productivity. Or it can be left alone to be overrun with weeds carried as seeds on the wind and by passing birds.
To Think Accurately is a skill that is developed over time. Choosing your thoughts, and discerning where your thought come from is very important. Often our thoughts are generated from the beliefs and experiences of our upbringing or those people with whom we hang out. Your thoughts are very powerful. Your thoughts are vibration. What you think about activates the universe. To really understand this from a positive perspective, let’s talk again about the 17 second process.
“You are only 17 seconds Away from 68 Seconds to Fulfillment.”
“With only a few seconds of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation. The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it because you are attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with.
“Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now as that focus become stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.
“When you repeatedly return to a pure thought, maintaining it for at least 68 seconds, in a short period of time (hours in some cases or a few days in others) that thought becomes a dominant thought. And once you achieve a dominant thought, you will experience matching manifestations until you change it. Ask and It Is Given by Hicks
If you haven’t already read the essay about creating your day, please do.
When you visualize something happening that you really want to happen in specific detail as though it is happening at this very moment, it is powerful. When you pray and imagine that your prayer is answered immediately, and you “see” scenes taking place after your prayer is answered, in detail with as many senses as you can, you feel great, you feel gratitude, and you are sending your appreciation to God for your answered prayer.
When I had my home in Minnesota on the market last year, for six months I had no sale. Then my daughter and I decided to do “17 seconds” every day. We would focus on how good it would feel when we received the phone call from our agent. We imagined going to closing and signing all the documents. We imagined seeing the big red SOLD sign being hung on our For Sale sign. We imagined pulling out of our driveway with our Casita travel trailer for the last time, and the sense of freedom we would feel.
There was a lot going on at the time. A lot of worry and fear clouded our emotions. But we carried on doing our “17 seconds” which usually lasted about a minute and a half. We would be exhilarated when we were finished each time. Our fear ebbed the more we did 17 seconds, because we were making the scenario real to our bodies.
Then I got that call. It came three weeks later. It didn’t happen exactly as we imagined. It was better than we imagined. The sale of the home was consummated about seven weeks later. Some very difficult circumstances were navigated very easily and mostly effortlessly. That’s another by-product of 17 seconds.
This weekend I wanted to buy a new mattress. Before I went shopping, My daughter and I did ‘17 seconds’ on finding exactly what we wanted and were specific about how much we wanted to pay. We found that mattress on our first stop for $900 below retail price, and the salesperson told us it was below cost. I know it was because we did our preparation of ‘17 seconds.’
Remember ’17 seconds’ is what it takes to begin aligning your mind. For each increment of 17 seconds that you add of focused thought, visualization, prayer, the power gets amped up. I never time my 17 seconds, because I keep adding to the visualization until I feel it “take.” In my home, we try to do our ’17 seconds’ process together. It helps to do it with someone else. You feel the emotional support of doing it together. And it is wonderful to share the exhilaration of something well imagined together when we have finished. We often give each other a high five.
What you think about is very powerful. Enjoy unleashing the eager Universe by doing ’17 seconds’ on something you want. It gets so that you don’t even have to do 17 seconds. I wanted a very large mirror to put out on my north facing patio. Within four days, my sister walked in carrying a huge door sized mirror that she ‘found’ at the dumpster when taking out my trash. So even 17 seconds can manifest. It works.
