Well, it came from Abraham Hicks and it’s the minimum period you need to hold a thought for it to “activate”. It’s like sending a message to the universe, you need to stay on it long enough for the message to be broadcasted.

And some people say it’s 17 seconds while others say a different amount.

What do I think?

I think if you believe it is 17, then that’s the magic number. If you believe otherwise, then it becomes that one. Your intention matters a lot more. It’s not like a science. It’s not like cooking where you need to put exactly this amount of vanilla for the cake to taste well.

It’s the power of your belief that makes it true. One thing though is universal and that you need to “activate” your thoughts. This means determining what you want, adding emotional vibrancy like joy and desire and passion and having absolute faith it will come to fruition. That it is 17 seconds or 30  seconds, it’s not a rule. But the more you hold it, the better you communicate to the universe you want it.

And it is best that once you’ve decided upon a period, to make a ritual out. This means it can be 13 or 14 or 20 seconds or whatever feels right for you, but once you do this, keep doing it. Activate each thought you have for the same time.

I don’t know why this works but I’ve noticed that once I’ve acted so, manifestation become a lot easier. It was like I’ve discovered a cheat to life, a shortcut” to Law of Attraction.

But why does the 17 second manifestation technique works?

It is the law of vibration.

The law of vibration states that everything around us is energy vibrating at a very high level. You know this from elementary physics, you’ve learned it in school. All matter is just energy moving at a very high speed. When you “activate” a thought by keeping it in your mind, raising its vibration emotionally and having absolute faith it will come true – or better said, that it came true already, you’re sending a “wave link” of vibration to the universe.

Sorry, this may be confusing, so let me exemplify this for you.

When you think positively, you’ll attract some favorable circumstances because like attracts like. You should do it. But it’s like having a flashlight, a poor one. Sure, it provides light, but it’s diffused and all over the place. It will also not travel far nor be seen with ease.

When you hold a thought for 17 seconds, it’s like you’re using a laser beam. All your energy, focus is concentrated in a single point. You send a clear message to the universe about what you want and you’re far more likely to manifest that what you desire.

So affirmations… general positive thinking… day-dreaming… all of them are like flashlights. They’re good to cut through the darkness but not amazing. Activating a thought and other techniques like intense meditation and Law of Attraction rituals are like a laser beam that concentrates all its energy in just one point, instead of spreading it all around.

Now does it make sense?

And there’s another part to the law of vibration.

Vibration happens. It’s not something you make happen. Everything vibrates around you. You vibrate because you’re made of energy just like everything in this universe.

All the circumstances you desire exist in their own form of vibration. Let me repeat this to you. The world you desire is already out there. Love, wealth, health, all that you want exists, and it surrounds you. But you can never connect to it until you operate on the same level of vibration.

Let’s say that you want to manifest love in your life, a worthy goal.

Do you think you’ll create that ideal person out of nothing from your thoughts? Not. He is already out there. He exists, had a past, will have a future. He exists independent of you thinking of him or not.

Therefore, when you decide that this is what you want, when you add passion and joy to this, when you have so much faith you’re looking at this like it already happened, your vibration raises at the level of his vibration and the two of you are brought together. It’s like basic physics – if you put two magnets together, of negative polarity, they’ll attract each other.

As you know, it’s very very hard to keep two magnets from creating a connection, the bigger the magnet, the harder the task. On the other side, two magnets with the same polarity will reject each other. It’s a law of nature. The magnets don’t decide that this is to happen. It simply does.

So is with Law of Attraction and the law of vibration.

You want more money. There are about 15 trillion dollars in circulation in the world right now. That’s a lot of money and there’s a lot more in investments and so on. When you activate your desire, you don’t create money out of thin air. It’s not like a briefcase filled with US dollars will show up out of nowhere. Nope. You match the vibration of wealth and you’ll naturally attract some of that money.

You’ll develop a magnetism for what you want.

You’ll go through life like that magnet I told you earlier pulling things towards you – in this case money.

But here’s the kicker.

You’re already going through life as that magnet. You always had, always will. Because just as you can attract wealth, so you can attract poverty. Just as you can attract love, so you can attract hate.

You are a human magnet or better said, Law of Attraction makes you one and you’re constantly attracting and repelling based on your dominant thoughts and the emotions you associate with them. And if you don’t like what you’re attracting, then your job is simple – change the polarity. Change  our level of vibration and attract something else, something that’s beneficial to you.

It’s simple.

You need not read a 500-page book to understand it.You are like a magnet. You attract what vibrates at the same level as you do. You also reject, push away anything that vibrates higher than you do. And when you do the 17 second activation process, it’s like putting an electrical current through that magnet. You increase its power. You attract even more.

So use this technique.

Determine what you want. Always focus towards where you’d like to be, not what you want to avoid. This is because with intention, there is no negative. Saying “I don’t want to smoke” is the same as “I want to smoke”. So instead say something like “I want to be smoking free”. Always state your request in the positive.

Then get emotional about it. Get excited. Get passionate. Be like a kid having fun. Be like a kid shopping with his parents for his Christmas gift. It’s hard to describe how to add emotions but I think you get me. Don’t be afraid to be silly. What’s important is that you feel strongly about this.

And last but not least, get certain about it. LoA works by attracting in your life what you feel it is already there. Once you become convinced you have something, then it is ready to appear. So if you feel you’ve already achieved your goal, already attract wealth, already attracted your partner,
then that’s the signal for it to come.

Do this often. Do it for 13 or 15 or 30 seconds. It doesn’t matter although I suggest you do it at least ten seconds at a time. Then as you go through life, you’ll notice how you push away the opposite of what you want and how you’ll attract, gently, the circumstances that will make your vision come
true.
