Hang onto a balloon, when you would prefer to see it in the sky, and it's obvious that you are not going to get what you want. However, recognizing that you need to release your intentions to the universe in order to receive results might not be easy to understand.
The law of attraction involves focusing on your goals, but doing so is not the end of the exercise. You need to liberate your dreams if you want them to come true.
For a moment, think of the universe as an enormous brain. The wishes that you want to transpire are bright sparks of energy that, once released, travel across neurons, creating electrical impulses that fly through the body of genius that masterminds all occurrences.
Eventually, the energy becomes one with the brain and events occur corresponding to the wishes that have been received.
If you don't discharge your wants, they will not travel, even if you've spent a great deal of time getting them to ignite.
Countless people are disappointed when they imagine that they've done everything in their power to make their dreams a reality.
Perhaps, they've focused on appropriate affirmations and given their visual clarity, but they've still not experienced results.
They undergo an inner-struggle between desperately wanting developments to occur and the reality of not achieving success.
In truth, what's happened is that they've laid all the groundwork that will help them reach their aim, but they've become stuck in the focusing stage of attraction.
Interestingly, the action of making wishes come true is similar to what happens in the human brain when people have fantastic bursts of creativity and aha moments.
Excellent ideas burst into life after periods of intense focus that are followed by absolute release.
Have you ever wondered why great artists often have their best ideas when they are carrying out mundane tasks?
Achievements flow after bouts of thinking hard when people are relaxed. In other words, they let go of the exertion involved in attempting to formulate ideas manually.
Likewise, release your messages to the universe and they will be free to travel and burst into life.
When you release something, it is no longer in your grasp. When you've thrown a ball, you expect it to travel in the direction in which it was propelled.
Furthermore, you are aware that there is nothing more that you can do to help its journey toward its destination.
How well you formulate your intention can be likened to how well you throw a ball; if you do so well, it is likely to go exactly where you want.
Nonetheless, it will not go anywhere if you continue to hold it in your hand.
You might wonder how to let go of an intention, or message. Releasing involves relaxing after intensely focusing on your goal, followed by believing that the universal brain has taken over the job at hand. You cannot guide your intention with inner struggle.
Struggling is a sign that you are holding on too tightly. You only need to fire up your dreams with energy and allow them to fly if you want to help them to become a reality.
