If you haven't already heard Abraham talk about the power of 17 seconds, here's a quick recap from "Ask and It Is Given": "Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated and the Law of Attraction will bring 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 the vibration will become further reaching.  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."

Now 68 seconds might not sound like a big deal, but I've found it's easier said than done.  However, I found something that makes it easier.  Here's is one way to create conscious beliefs that serve you.  Simply offer a handful of answers to each of the following questions:

  • What would I see that shows I've achieved this goal?
  • What would I hear others say that offers proof I've achieved this goal?
  • What would I say to others that shows I've accomplished this?
  • What would I feel once this is mine?

The time it will take you to get through those answers is probably somewhere between 17 and 68 seconds, and virtually all of it will be pure positive pleasant delicious thought.  (It takes a little practice, but it pays off BIG time.)

Below, is any easy chart to see how many seconds of pure focused thought translates into how many action hours and how that converts into the possibility of manifestation.
