I have been trying to manifest my desires and getting nowhere. I have always believed in positive thinking and last year read the law of attraction and thought that took positive thinking a step further. I can’t get it to work for me. I have tried to keep my thoughts on what I am trying to manifest and not be discouraged because it is not happening. Then I discovered your web site and now one of your books “The Book of Secrets” and you believe in ‘letting go’. I just don’t get this. I am trying to manifest my desires by keeping my intention clear and foremost in my mind. If I let it go and give it up to the Universe, have I not just given up on my desires? I can’t connect this to concepts in my mind and I don’t know how to let go. Can you clarify this for me?
