How Long Does It Take For The Law Of Attraction To Work?
When you first start using the Law of Attraction, you might notice that the things you don’t truly care about seem to manifest very quickly—perhaps you forget about them, and then wake up one morning to find you have them!
However, a common complaint is that it seems to take forever to attract the things you really yearn for—even after visualizing, thinking positively, and doing everything you’re meant to do.
So, how long should you expect to wait for the Law of Attraction to work?
Let’s look at six key things that help to determine this.
(And after this you're still not sure what's stopping you from manifesting your dream, take this free test here to get a personalized report on what ‘one thing' is holding you back).
1. It All Depends On Your Attachment
It is your attachment to the outcome of your manifestation attempts that will determine whether you reach your goal within weeks or years.
When you see that you’ve effortlessly manifested something you don’t really care about (like a tasty meal or a gorgeous new shirt), this isn’t because it’s necessarily easier to manifest that thing—rather, it’s because you feel okay about the possibility of never getting that thing.
On the other hand, you likely care a great deal about whether (and when) you get something like a new job, a loving relationship or financial abundance. If you can find effective ways to let go of your attachment to these bigger dreams, the Law of Attraction is likely to work much more quickly.
2. Your Thoughts Create Your Reality
One of the core beliefs you need to accept when working with the Law of Attraction is that your thoughts shape your world—and it’s this truth that will help you understand why it sometimes seems to take a long time to manifest what you desire.
Specifically, if you’re desperate for a thing you don’t have (like a new love), it’s easy to let your mind constantly notice that you don’t have that love. You’ll spend more moments considering that it “seems to be taking a long time” to manifest, and dwelling on that thought actually creates a further lack of the thing you’re trying to manifest.
Basically, The Law Of Attraction is always working. It's just that sometimes you are attracting the wrong things by accident.
3. Your Job Is To Trust The Universe
Perhaps the number one thing you need to do when working with the Law of Attraction is simply trust the universe.
Every time you dwell on worries about not manifesting the thing you desire, and every time you get stressed over the thought that you must be doing something wrong, you send out negative vibrations that tell the universe you don’t trust it to give you what you need.
Aim to ask for what you want and then allow that desire thing to appear—trusting that it will, and that it will do so at the right time.
4. You Need To Look For Signs
Although it’s great for you to have a clear vision of what you want (right down to its smell, feel and vivid details), if you are too narrow-minded about manifestation then you might actually fail to notice that the universe has already sent you what you want!
In other words, if you think it’s taking ages for the Law of Attraction to work, perhaps you need to take a closer look at signs to the contrary. If you’re looking for love, have you turned down certain dates out of pessimism or ignored repeated reminders of an event that you wouldn’t normally attend?
These could all have been avenues to what you want to manifest, even if they don’t look like it on the surface. Be curious and open about signs on the road to success, and you might find you’re closer to your dream life than you ever thought. Keep an eye out on these 7 signs that The Law Of Attraction is working for you already.
5. Anxiety Slows Manifestation
Whenever you get anxious, impatient or angry at the thought that you haven’t yet manifested the thing you desire, you’re actually pushing that very thing away. You’re vibrating on a low frequency that attracts more negativity.
Using the Law of Attraction is about more than thinking positively—it’s about facing your underlying fears head-on, so that you truly get rid of them and don’t leave them simmering under the surface.
6. Detachment Is Possible
As mentioned at the outset, quicker manifestation comes with severing attachments. Work to find ways to accept and enjoy the way things are now—show yourself that you’ll always be okay and find a way towards satisfaction, regardless of whether you ever manifest a specific job, person or amount of money.
However, do so feeling secure in the knowledge that you can get what you want—the vital thing to remember is just that you don’t need to get what you want.
At the end of the day, it’s you who decides how long it takes for the Law of Attraction to work—and you’ll soon see that however long it takes you to manifest will be precisely the right amount of time for you!
