When working with the Law of Attraction the idea is to set an intention, then let it go. The idea is not to continue to focus on the intention we set.
Why do we need to release our intention? According to the Law of Attraction, where attention goes energy flows. The state of wanting is synonymous to the state of not having. When we continue to focus on what we want – in other words what we do not have – we are setting our intention on the state of what is absent in our life.
When we are truly out of balance, the feeling of wanting creates an insatiable appetite for us. Our desire cannot be satisfied, even when we receive that which we desire. The flames of wanting consume what we receive before we can truly appreciate what we have. As a result, continuing to be in a state of wanting creates a void that continues to consume our sense of peace, expanding like a black hole.
A state of continuous wanting will eclipse a state of appreciation for what we actually have. To manifest the things in our life that bring us peace, we need to step away from a perpetual state of desire. The act of continuously focusing on that which we do not have in our life multiplies into a greater deficit, feeding on its own energy. Therefore, a regular and consistent act of taking inventory of the positive aspects of our lives reduces the feeling of persistent lack. Appreciation for what we already have removes
the cravings of constant desire that creates an impediment to obtaining peace.
