How long will it take for a poppyseed to flower or an acorn to grow into a mighty oak tree? Botanists know, for they have studied plants for centuries and have passed down their observations from generation to generation.Were you to ask me, “How long does it take for a demand to manifest?” I would have to answer that it is totally dependent on many factors; some of which you have control over, and others you don’t. When it comes to garage doors where do you start?
The Law of Gestation states that every seed must follow a process of growth, from conception to incubation through maturity to death. A desire is an idea that grew out of a thought, and thoughts are merely seeds of the mind for which not even the fortune teller can predict the length of time it will take to grow to maturity. Nobody can truly know. Taking interest in roller garage doors may not be a bad thing.
But, as described in a previous chapter: Like rain waters and minerals nourish a seed planted in the soil, your attention and emotions feed the seed of your demand. It will take an unknown amount of time for a demand to come to pass—like everything in nature, it must follow a process.Your responsibility as the creator of the demand is to decide on what you want, hold the vision of it materializing in your life, feel the feelings of the demand already being accomplished, and take action toward its attainment. These days electric garage doors can be so complicated.
When a demand takes an extended period of time to materialize, many people become disheartened by a lack of external evidence that it is coming to pass. Don’t rely on evidence from outside your mind as proof that you will one day have your demand! Proof in the physical that your dream has come true is the result you will manifest when you follow the Demand Principle. Holding out for validation is a losing proposition. Instead, return to the screen of your mind through visualization where you will see and feel how good it feels to have your demand. As the brilliant philosopher eloquently said: “Wait as the one who understands.” Are garage door repairs the solution that you are looking for?
Have patience and trust in the process. If you want some aerial repairs then we know a man who can.
When I made the decision that I would put my book, Your Destiny Switch, on the New York Times Best-Seller list, I spent many hours visualizing. One of the greatest things I did was find a shiny gold New York Times Best-Seller sticker, and I glued it on the front cover of my book; and then I made color copies. By placing these mocked-up book covers all over my house and my office, it provided me with a wonderful visual and allowed me to connect to the feeling of my demand’s fulfillment. I was holding tight to that dream and I wasn't letting it go. Starting with aerial installation is not a bad place to begin.
