Use What Works For You: Faith or Experimentation Involving Manifestation Of Prayers, Petitions and Requests To The Universe

Patience And The Manifestation Delay

You're probably intimately familiar with that little concept called the "manifestation delay." The manifestation delay is the gap in time that occurs between asking the Universe for something and the Universe delivering. That delay is also when most people panic and decide that the Universe isn't going to deliver.

So what can you do if you find yourself mashing that panic button repeatedly because you think the Universe isn't going to deliver what you really, really want? The first step is to take your finger off the panic button and take a deep breath. Next, have a little faith. "A little what?" you say. Faith.

Herein lays the problem. A lot of people have difficulty with the word faith. Faith seems to imply sitting around, twiddling your thumbs, doing nothing, and hoping that the Universe is in a good mood and will deliver today. Faith makes some people feel powerless and at the mercy of some unknown higher force. Faith can even seem foolish because it asks you to believe in something that you can't see and hasn't yet happened.

If you have difficulty having faith in the Universe's ability to deliver, try a different approach. Instead of leaving it all up to faith, what if you treated the whole process as an experiment? When you treat a situation as an experiment rather than a life-or-death affair, you give yourself permission to welcome any outcome. No matter what happens you win. But what do you win? You win valuable information.

If you remain peaceful and calm during the whole process and the Universe fails to deliver, then you know that simply sitting back and letting the Universe work isn't a good approach for you. You can go right back to mashing that panic button as hard and fast as you want. On the other hand, if the Universe does deliver (and it will!) then you've learned something valuable about the manifestation process.

The good news is that you can't get a bad outcome from this experiment. If treating your situation as an experiment allows you to relax and breathe, then you automatically give the Universe the room it needs to deliver what you want. You simply can't lose but you have to discover that for yourself. Most of all, enjoy, enjoy!
