It only takes 17 seconds of positive general thought to start the foundation of an emotional grid that the law of attraction will help to fill in with thoughts, people and circumstances. 17 seconds isn’t that long at all 🙂 Can you joyously feel your way through?

Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now, as that focus becomes stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibra­tion will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of the vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.
