The sooner you understand the art of surrendering your attachment to a desired outcome, the quicker you will manifest what you desire. You live in a Universe that is governed by laws of mind and Spirit and once you understand the nuances of these laws, you can more easily navigate through what isn’t working for you by learning to work in alignment with these laws. These laws promise all living creatures the potential to experience a life of prosperity and joy.
One of these laws is the law of paradoxical intent. This laws states that the more desperate you are to achieve a certain goal, the more your energy will push it away, creating the paradox (or opposite) of your intention. The more you want something-the more you push it away! Here’s how this works. When you are thinking, believing and feeling you NEED something urgently, like for your business to take off and start producing an income, or for a publisher to pick up your book, or for a new job, or anything that feels desperate, then you are filtering your life through the belief that you can’t be happy without these things. And your lack of joy in the present will make it impossible to attract what you desire in the future.
The solution, then, is in surrendering your attachment to the outcome. Letting go of the NEED, the urgency and the misery of not having the desired outcome and begin instead to live each day being happy regardless of the outcome. Continue to move toward your goals and desires, but enjoy the process knowing the outcome will only enhance an already joy filled life.
Do not let your goals define you or determine your value. You already have intrinsic, unlimited value as a Spiritual being. Change the energy of desperation to determination. Can you feel the energetic difference? Then, take action toward your desired outcome in a relaxed and peaceful resolve. Be patient, let go of worry, hurry, stress and striving. Release your goal to the Universe and live in the energy of a trusting, peaceful heart knowing you are your own source of happiness. Practice living each moment in peace, happiness, worth and abundance and you will naturally, by law, attract more of that into your life.
