Manifesting More Time
Many folks are good at creating a shortage of time, by speaking these sorts of things into being:
- “I’m so crazy busy.”
- “There isn’t enough time for that.”
- “Where did the time go?!”
- “I don’t know if I can get this done in time.”
And sometimes we make time the fall guy to get out of things we don’t really want to do:
- “I’d love to … but I’m too busy.”
- “My schedule is so packed I simply can’t fit it in.”
Which just exacerbates our shortage of it.
We also manifest a rigid experience of time by buying into limiting thoughts like: “Well, there are only 24 hours in a day” and “You can only do so much.”
No one would argue with you on that, but if it’s not the vibration you want to activate – you’re going to need to choose something else.
I’ve been playing with a more fluid experience of time.
That has included divorcing my constant attention from the clock and the schedule as much as possible. And being aware when I’m speaking into being something I don’t want.
It has also included creating a more satisfying relationship with time – the same way we create one with money:
- I get friendly with it
- I appreciate it
- I trust it and expect good things from it.
- I affirm that Time and I are on good terms!
The point is that how we feel is what we create. Are you willing to experiment with a way to feel more abundant with time? Even just imagining what that might be like shifts your time vibe.
In Marney Makridakis‘ book Creating Time she invites us to imagine who we would be if we didn’t worry about time. And to examine what our payoffs are for experiencing a shortage of it. (Does it make us feel important? Keep us safe from engaging a risky new venture? Keep us distracted from issues we don’t want to address?)
A powerful tip from Mike Dooley last week is to speak it so. ”I have sooooooo much free time,” he affirms. Say it even when you don’t. Especially when you don’t!
When Mike said that it was music to my ears! (Because I’d been feeling rather busy.) I’ve been playing with that declaration ever since – when I feel pressured for time, and just when I want to recall the deliciousness of that thought.
As a result, several times this week – despite having a very full schedule – I’ve had experiences where I felt absolutely abundant with time. Yesterday at lunch I asked dad what time it was. (I don’t wear a watch or carry a cell phone – it’s part of how I feel loose and free with time).
Anyway, I was planning a stop at the vet’s office before heading home for an afternoon client call, and when he said, “two o’clock” I felt the delicious richness of having plenty of time! I literally laughed out loud as yet again Universe proved me true, no matter what I’m willing to declare. Including, “I have sooooo much extra time!”
You don’t really want more time, you want less resistance.
Time is a perceptual thing. When you’re up to speed with who you are, time not only stands still, it becomes irrelevant.
You’re looking for the leverage of being in the vortex. (Any shortage consciousness is always out of the vortex.)
You don’t need more time. You need more alignment.
You only need time when you’re not in the vortex. When you’re out of the vortex it takes lots of time and manpower and wrestling with uncontrollable things. When you’re in the vortex you have everything at your fingertips.
We don’t want more time, we want more alignment. That makes sense!
It’s very popular to blame time (and money) as the reason we don’t feel better or live happier. But the truth is the entire world is just responding to what we think.
The bottom line is that when we change our thoughts about time we’ll change our experience of it. It’s how it works.
Here’s to becoming RICH with time!
