Ask and you shall receive, ask and it's given, think positive, set your intention, focus on what you desire, after awhile you might find yourself overwhelmed with techniques of thinking in order to get the magic of the law of attraction to work for you. Today, as well as the next few days I am going to discuss what is called "closing the gap".
Closing the gap is a phrase I use to describe the length of time it takes from when you "ask" for something until it manifest's into reality. Understanding this will certainly help in closing the gap. You see when you ask for something, lets say more money, the Universe creates the "vibrational" version of you with more money instantly. The time it takes for you to become that person with more money (what ever specific amount you requested) is really just the time it takes for you to get in alignment with you. When you ask for more money, you are asking from the lower vibration of not having enough money and in order to manifest that money you have to become a vibrational match to more money. The you with more money is a much higher vibration and all you have to do to receive this is match the vibration. The law of attraction is responsible for this as "that which is alike attracts".
So how do you know what your vibration is? Well, your emotions will tell you this. Your emotions act as your guidance system so you know if your in alignment with what you want or in alignment with what you don't want. Let me explain this in a bit more detail. As human beings we have a full range of emotions ranging from depression and despair (lower frequency vibration) all the way up to joy, bliss and empowerment (higher frequency vibration). Each emotion represents a different frequency. Much like a radio frequency, if you want to listen to alternative rock you must tune into the radio frequency on your receiver to the station that broadcast's alternative rock. If you want to listen to jazz you need to tune your radio dial to a new frequency in order to listen to jazz. Our emotions work much the same way accept that in this case your brain would act as the radio broadcasting a frequency. With that being said, lets go back to the example of manifesting money. So you tuned into the frequency of needing more money and life caused you to ask for more. Now you need to re-tune your frequency to that of abundance or more money (be specific in the amount you ask for, say $10K). What you need to do is get out of the energy of lack and scarcity which caused you to ask for more and in order to do that you just need to feel a better feeling emotion or think a better feeling thought. Take this chart for instance I pasted below this article. This is what is referred to as the emotional ladder. This is a helpful tool to guide you along the range of emotions in order to tune your frequency to what you desire, in this case more money ($10K). So if you were a vibrational match to worry when you asked for more money you would need to get in range of joy or happiness to be at the frequency of your desire. Now much like climbing a ladder, you can't take one giant step up to the top rung, you need to take steps in order to get to the top. In this case, you thinking a better feeling thought would be the equivalent of taking a step. Each better feeling thought will lead you to a better feeling emotion which in turn is how you would go about closing the gap. How long does this take? As long as it takes you to get into a better feeling emotion. This is why you always hear people (including myself) stating that life was meant to feel good. When you feel good the law of attraction assembles all cooperative components in order to manifest that what you asked for. It's law! Ask and it is given is a reality so long as you allow yourself to feel good. So what's your intention of the day? Set your intention to feeling good and watch what happens. Have a great day!
