Why don’t thoughts manifest desires instantly? How is it that we’re always using the law of attraction to create our reality, yet there always seems to be a time lag between our thoughts and desires and their resultant manifestations?
The following Abraham quote offers a compelling perspective on the issue of wanting to manifest desires instantly;
The buffer of time gives you the opportunity to get it right before it manifests, to take pleasure from the vision and from the molding it into place…Can you imagine if everything was manifesting instantly? You would manifest this, and then you would manifest it away. And then you’d manifest that, and then…It would be a difficult thing if you were instantly manifesting every whim or every misaligned thought. It’s so much better that you have this buffer of time where you can feel it into perfection before it manifests into your experience.
Abraham (As channeled by Esther Hicks)

Part and parcel of the human, physical experience is a time lag between our thoughts and manifest desires. Whenever I’m feeling impatient regarding a particular desire I’m attempting to manifest, and wish I could manifest desires instantly, I remind myself of the necessity for this buffer of time. The nature of the human thought process is such that most of us should be very thankful this time buffer exists. Try and imagine the chaos within our experience that would ensue if every thought had you instantly manifesting your desire.
While a buffer of time between our thoughts and our manifestations undoubtedly exists here on the physical plane, the length of time it takes us to manifest desires can be shortened considerably when we are using the law of attraction to our advantage by choosing positive thoughts.
Most of us offer thought in relation to what we’re experiencing in each present moment. For many of us, there is little to no selection involved. We simply think a thought reflexively in response to any present moment occurrence. Some one cuts us off while driving and we have a knee-jerk response of angry thoughts.
When you make a conscious decision to choose your thoughts, not in accordance with what the moment before you is presenting, but instead, in accordance with what will currently make you feel good and according to the future desires you’d like to manifest, you move into the realm of conscious creation. You are then using the law of attraction to bring the very best to you that the physical experience has to offer and will find yourself manifesting your desire with ease.
When we get into the habit of offering thought consciously, regardless of what our current reality is presenting, we are able to manifest desires much more effortlessly and much more quickly than if we’re offering thought randomly AND we experience much more enjoyment in the present moment.
Sure, a certain time lag exists between the inception of our desires and their manifestation within our reality, but would we really want it any other way? Imagine if every desire that entered your mind became manifest within seconds. There would be no time to mold the desire into one that would be uniquely pleasing to you as a person...no time to savor the inception of the desire..... no time to mull the thoughts over to reach the very best case scenario regarding your future experience.
AND.....When we reach a point where we have conscious control over the thoughts we choose to think on a moment to moment basis, and we therefore have taken control of our the personal vibration we're emitting, THEN we'll naturally find that we are able to manifest desires more quickly.
