Why the first thing you manifest should be time.

How often do you hear or say, “I don’t have time for that.” The world is busy, and we are all getting caught up in a time crunch. When you get a text from work or even a friend, you can almost sense the tapping of fingers at the other end. Sometimes the urgency is real, and sometimes it is imagined. In either case, these distractions now follow us through the day, and in every spare moment, we check our email, news feed, social media accounts and reply to all those texts.

Even smokers don’t seem to have time to go outside and smoke anymore. Our spare time seems to be ours no longer. Our phone is our assistant that works 24 hours. Often it is the last thing we see at night and the first thing we see when we wake up.

Well, there is no going back to rotary phones, answering machines, or the handwritten mail that would take three days or more to travel from point A to point B. People want info, they want it now, and they want it fast.

All this was created to save us time and labor. We get a lot more work done in a few hours now than our grandparents could in sometimes 2 or 3 days. With all this time savings, we should be spending half our week by the pool enjoying life, spending more time with friends and family, and traveling the world.

However, what has happened is we filled in that potential free time with more work. Some have viewed productivity as more valuable than enjoying one’s humanity.

If we can do twice as much in a day as the past generation, why not three times as much, or 4 or 5? The bar moves up and up, lining the pockets of large corporations while draining the life of its employees.

So then you discover a book or a video about manifesting anything you want. YES, you think to yourself, “I can have anything I want. I just need to manifest it!”

You skimmed the book to get the main idea because that is all you really have time for, and then — nothing. Why? Because “I don’t have time to manifest, I barely had time to skim the book.”

So you stay caught up in the same routines, the same shortfalls, the sense of never being free to go anywhere or do anything. I mean, does anyone even have a hobby anymore? Who has time for that?

So forget about the riches, forget about the vacations, forget your hobbies, if you don’t have time for it, what’s the point?

“Wait! That’s it! TIME. I need to manifest more time.” If this was your thought, you are correct. You need time to manifest time; then, you can manifest everything else in that time. The topic of manifesting time first has been missing from the books and videos I have seen.

So open your tight schedule and take some time for yourself. It’s there. I know you can find 15 min in there for you. The first time you do this, just celebrate that you did it. “I took some time for me.” how does that feel?

If this resonated with you, you have already generated a desire for more time. No meditation is required. It’s pretty easy, right?

Go ahead and show the universe you are serious about wanting some time just for you, and schedule in another 15 min somewhere in the week. Don’t check your messages during this time, and don’t answer the phone. Anyone can wait 15 min for a reply. Turn on some inspiring music if you want, light a candle, and create a cozy moment.

This habit will grow effortlessly. “Your time is valuable.” If you hold on to that thought alone, you will begin to manifest more time. Keep at it and celebrate the little victory. You did not need to meet a 10,000 chant requirement. You just needed to want it bad enough to turn on that energetic magnet.

OK, so you got this! You are generating more time for yourself and more time to manifest your dreams and desires. It’s like the saying goes with winning the lottery, You can’t win if you don’t play.

It does not take a lot of time to manifest things, but if you don’t take the time, you can’t win the desire. Manifesting time does two really powerful things for you. The first gift is seeing your first manifestation realized! Yeah! The second gift is you now have the time you manifest more things.

You are a beautiful human living on an amazing planet. Sure we all need to pay the bills, but that is not all there is to this life. Happiness is achieved in many ways, friendships, relationships, travel, looking at the stars, and recognizing that you are part of something vast and spectacular. Life is miraculous if you take the time to play in its magic.

Find the time, make more time, then decide that time is on your side. Now that you have some “spare time,” what will you do next? Is there any limit to what you can do? It’s TIME for you to find out!
