There are only two reasons why you would experience a delay in the manifestation of what you desire. Either the frequencies of the dominant thoughts that you are practicing are not a match to the frequency of your desire. Or, what you think you want is not actually what you do want. If this is the case, the universe becomes the vibration of your ACTUAL desires; and you, in your temporary confusion will wonder why nothing you achieve, causes you to feel joy. It is because you are lining up with what you THINK you want. Not what you actually want. When this is the case, we are not in alignment with our eternal selves and thus, we are not in alignment with the universe at large.
