Q&A: Okay to Set Deadlines?
Yesterday I listened to Jerry Hicks and Abraham suggest that very often we don’t consciously realize when our desires have manifested.
Jerry gave the example of putting together his “vision board,” tucking it away in the back of a closet, then discovering it five years later to realize every single thing on the board had come to fruition. !!
(Sounds a lot like John Assaraf’s experience with his dream house as told in The Secret, doesn’t it?)
I wondered how often that happens to the rest of us. Looking at my “board” to see if anything had unfolded I hadn’t given credit for, sure enough, there was a money affirmation with my “big fat cash” monthly income goal, which I hit last year.
Huh. Must have eased my way into that so gradually I didn’t even realize it!
In trying to remember when I created the affirmation, I knew this wouldn’t be a puzzle if I used dates in my manifesting.
Which made me think of Tiffany’s question last week:
I was wondering if it was okay to set deadlines. I know, when used improperly, deadlines can be discouraging; however, I feel so great that I know the deadlines would work out. Thanks for any insight!
Since I’ve missed my share of deadlines (the manifestation often seems to unfold just after the deadline passes), I rarely use them. (Probably works that way for me because the self-imposed date feels like “pressure” and as soon as the pressure’s off, Universe escorts the manifestation right in.)
So I wondered what YOUR experiences with time frames and deadlines regarding manifesting with the law of attraction are.
Would love to hear your input on Tiffany’s question!
