“The Universe Likes Speed”

by Ellie Walsh

Does the Universe really like speed?

What do you think about that statement?
“The Universe Likes Speed”

It sounds official doesn’t it? Sounds like you ought to make sure you act and you act right now!

Here are some of the messages that statement implies:

  • Here is your opportunity and if you miss this the Universe will not supply you with another one!
  • If you don’t act quick the Universe will not help you!
  • Maybe even … If you don’t act on this the Universe will go against you!

Wow – those are some compelling reasons to act.

You better act now or else – Right?


Unfortunately that statement is most used when someone is trying to sell you something. You are at an event or on a webpage — They give us this great offer – “The package today is only $999.99 – for today only and remember the Universe likes speed!”

That statement is a marketing tactic – it is nowhere near the truth!

  • The Universe does not care if you are a roadrunner bird or a slow tortoise….
  • There is no such thing a missed opportunity as the Universe will always supply you with never ending opportunities…

That statement is trying to get you to listen to someone else’s guidance instead of your own. That statement all by itself can short circuit your own guidance if you are not used to following it.

I am not in anyway saying that some of those $999.99 packages aren’t a good deal. Some of them are.

I personally am leery of people who use that statement. I feel it is too manipulative.

I understand when someone offers a discount if you purchase today or by a certain date. I myself give discounts on early purchases. If I am renting a room I need to know by a certain date if I have enough people to pay for that room. Or if I brought x amount of packages with me – I would rather not travel back with them. So to offer an incentive is great for all involved.

My point in all of this…..

Sometimes we look at people as though they are gurus and they know better for us than we do. That is never the case!

Each of us has our own unique guidance… each of us has our own unique answers. Instead of acting on impulses that were directed by others – take the time to learn how to listen to your inner voice.

Gather the information and feel what resonates with you. Don’t be afraid of missing opportunities – the Universe has a never-ending supply of opportunities for you.

The Universe is responding to your vibrations – which means you get to create opportunities on a daily basis!

Hi Ellie,
I love this post it is so absolutely true, as I have found this out through recent events. I have really made the point of slowing down the rapid fire thoughts that tell me that I have to “Act Now” to a more calmer gentler voice that say “Everything is alright” I like the calmer voice much better and have told the other voice to go take a hike! Thanks for the wonderful reminder that I am on the right track

I agree – it’s a matter of waiting for the right opportunity to come along and then acting on it in the right way. A sailing boat’s crew wil hoist the sail when the wind is right – this is the action which allows the wind to carry the boat. So we can et life carry us by taking action which is ‘with the grain’ of the universe.
