I’m talking about how frustrated we get when we change our vibe but don’t get immediate results. That makes a lot of aspiring manifestors throw in the towel when they don’t see change happening.
This insight from Bashar is one of the most powerful I’ve heard on this subject. Stay with me here …
You know how on facebook when you start a status update, but then try to click off the page before you finish you get a message that asks if you really want to leave the page? And you have to confirm yes or no before you can proceed?
Conscious creation is kind of like that, it turns out.
We have to repeat our new instruction in order to create change in physical reality. One time doesn’t cut it.
Here’s how Bashar explains it:
The physical mind will assume that if it doesn’t see an exact one-to-one reflection in the circumstances that surround you with what it is you believe you’re giving off, you will think that something has failed.
This is where you get caught in your own paradoxical trap. Even though it is true that ‘what you put out is what you get back’ and that choosing a certain state of being determines the circumstances that surround you; the first stage or first reflection of that manifestation will usually look the same as it used to.
This gives you the opportunity to reinforce the new state of being by responding to the circumstances that look the same differently than you did before. And that is where you demonstrate that you truly have changed by responding to the circumstances differently even if they look the same as they used to.
That’s how it works.
The first reflection will usually be an echo of how it used to look. You must not respond to the echo as if that’s the representation of your new state.
You must respond to it as if you know it’s just an echo, and what you are putting out NOW – the NEW RESPONSE to the old circumstances – that will solidify the vibration of your preferred state of being and truly allow the circumstances to change themselves and take their cue from the new vibrations you’re putting out.
So don’t be fooled by the echo into thinking you’ve done something wrong or something’s not working. That’s the self-reinforcing mechanism that gives you a chance to decide whether you really want to change that circumstance or not.
Circumstances don’t matter; only state of being matters.
For me this is a much more satisfying explanation than the old “buffer of time” reply we usually get when asking why we don’t always see immediate manifestation after we adjust our vibe.
Think about it … how silly would it be if on facebook when I tried to click away with an unfinished status update, and saw the “are you sure you want to leave?” message, I just threw my hands up in the air in frustration and declared facebook won’t work for me. “It’s not listening!” or “I’m doing something wrong!”
The system clearly is working – all I have to do is understand how it’s set up. All I gotta do is click this box that says “yes, I really meant that.”
Same with manifesting. Rather than get frustrated that Universe isn’t responding to my new instruction, I just realize Universe needs to hear it from me consistently before it does its thing.
“Yes, I really meant financial abundance.” (I don’t let an ’empty-bank-account’ echo sway me from my new vibrational instruction.)
Or maybe if I was ordering up “raining men” I could actually think twice about whether I really want to juggle several at once. (That one’s worth being sure about, before you order that reality up!) Or I could make an important edit to my instruction: “raining fabulous men.”
This echo thing could really work in our favor to help us get our instruction right!
I know it’s easy to get frustrated when it seems our new vibration isn’t being matched – but just remember how it really works. You’ve got to be consistent in your new vibration regardless of what reality appears to be. Don’t be fooled by the echo.
You’re not doing something wrong; you’re not being ignored; you just need to be consistent in the new vibration you’re choosing.
