I cannot bring into my experience that which I desire while I remain focused on the fact I don’t have it. Those two states of mind are fundamentally opposed. They place me at cross-purposes with myself.
Source energy responds to my thoughts and resulting feelings as if everything is a request. When I am thinking of my desire, it is immediately on the way to me. But when I think about how my desire is not here, perhaps with resulting frustration and discontent, it is as if I am asking for more of the same. I put the brakes on, and that which I yearn for is stopped in its tracks.
A secret to manifesting what I want is to savor my desire from time-to-time while living in peace and appreciation until it arrives.
