Desire everything. Fear nothing. But how?
I've listened to a video on the Abraham-Hicks teaching regarding soulmates and things of that nature.
Q: When will I meet my soulmate?
A: When you no longer feel that it is missing in your life.
But how do I get to that point? How do I get to the point of feeling the desire for my soulmate? How do I get to the point of no longer wanting her or needing her so she can participate in all these trips I am planning?

Abraham is a great teacher (the best there is) but there's a point of going from learning from her to the knowing how it works from experience. Every experience is different but there is an underlining relevance. Here's how it goes. You set your attention to something and let it go. That feeling that you manifested (upon yourself) and brought to fruition will bring you what you desire. Take the thought no further than that. For example imagine yourself as an actor you have to conjur an emotion. In this sense you have to conjur that feeling you think you will have if you were to obtain what you're asking for...
One has to realize that once asked for be confident that they will receive it and you do this by mustering up the feeling similar to you having a job. If you're at a job you don't think to yourself "I wander if I'm getting paid today". In general, you know your place of employment is going to pay you on payday so you are in full confidence of knowing what you're going to get.
Don't be ill-reasoned in your expectations either. These thing that you ask for will only manifest to physical if and only if they are asked for in a calm meditative mind state. You ever wonder why rich people get richer? It's because they don't focus on what they don't have only what abundance they do have. Easy, beautiful stuff.

How to detach from your intention? It's one of those things you strain to do, feel it's impossible, then 1 day you find it's effortless. Then the next day you're stumped again!
Well that's how it is for me.
So I read these threads., steves posts, think think think, and eventually started to learn a way to view my problems as essentially trivial. I read stuart wilde 'the trick to money is having some' and he talks about how money is nothing but numbers, and his book Infinite Self puts all our ego related worries in their place. a life manual if ever i read one.
So I'm still straining, thinking "I DONT GET IT!" then today I get up and I see we have less than a tenner to get food this weekend, waiting for people to pay me etc. I could borrow some money, but instead for the first time \i think that I just dont care that we only have a few quid, even though I have 2 young kids, its like 'well, a weekend with beans on toast and an omlette, whats the worst that can happen...boredom??'
Then I check my account and someone has paid me for a job early.
This is detachment in action. It happened as an indirect result of my efforts. Dont give up HTH

You can't continually concentrate on what isn't working, and get to where you want to be. Look for things that you are experiencing right now, that you truly and deeply appreciate. Look for things that make your heart sing to notice them.
Want says to the universe, "I do not yet have." (resistance)
Appreciation says to the universe, "I have it and I love it." (absence of resistance)

I think it happens when you take the fear out of the situation (which is what you just did) like you said `whats the worst that can happen`? then the universe seems to deliver, I do it every time a huge bill (usually electricity bill) comes in I panic at 1st then I forget about it for a while, the money ALWAYS seems to come, becoming more aware of this is the key to it all I reckon, I sometimes feel Ive got it then like you said it goes as quick as it comes.

In my own experience of wanting things, the easiest way for me to let them go is to focus on how I already have what I expect that thing or experience to give me.
If I want to manifest a partner, I'd imagine all the things I'd like to do with that person--and I go out and enjoy them on my own. I'd focus on enjoying myself right then and there, in whatever I was doing. If I wanted to take a trip with my ideal partner, I'd go ahead and take it on my own and have fun. Rather than focus on how I didn't have a partner to share it with, I might imagine how much I was going to enjoy sharing that place with someone new the next time I came back.
Similarly, if I had some sort of lack in my life that I was expecting the partner to help me fill, I'd go ahead and fill it on my own. If I imagined myself being motivated by a partner to be better-dressed, or better-organized, or more outgoing, I'd go ahead and take steps to be those things, rather than wait for them to show up and boost me out of my rut. If I was lonely, I'd go out and start meeting more people who shared my interests, with the intention of making more friends. I'd just go have fun and enjoy their companionship, and maybe one of them would turn out to be my ideal partner, or introduce me to him.
As a result of all this, the partner might show up. Or they might not, but I'd be so happy doing the things I wanted to do, and making positive changes in my life, that it might not matter. It would be nice to have a partner, but I wouldn't need one to be happy. And when he did show up, it would be even better because I was already happy--he'd just add to it.
I haven't done this with a partner, but I did do it with a desired move back to San Francisco a couple of years ago. I wanted to make the move so badly, but it just wasn't happening and I was starting to feel a bit desperate.
So I started taking long walks in my neighborhood, just looking at the trees and the houses and thinking about how much I would miss certain things about my current city if I moved away. I started going out and doing more things, attending the kinds of cultural events I'd planned on doing in SF, paying more attention to the local art scene. I also started volunteering for a couple of local organizations I cared about, as a way to meet more people.
And now? I don't really want to move. Or I do, but if I have to stay here another 10 years that's okay, too; there are advantages to staying where I am. And SF isn't off limits to me; I could always go spend a few days there, enjoy it, and come home. I do think he opportunity to move will present itself eventually, but for now I'm just going to stay focused on how great it is to be where I am. I want to live in SF, but I don't need to in order to be happy and have the kind of life I want.
But as I pulled over to the side of the road, I said to myself, "This is not a big deal. If he writes me a ticket, I'll pay it. I can handle this; nothing bad has happened." I just let it all go.
I calmly gave him my license and explained why I didn't have my insurance card. I wasn't stressed about it at all. He took my license back to his car to check it on the computer, and five minutes later he came back, gave me a verbal warning, didn't even mention the windshield (even though he stood there looking straight at it!), and told me to drive safely and have a good evening. He could have written me $800 or so in tickets, but didn't--and the only reason I can think of why he didn't cite me for anything was because I put up no resistance to the experience of being pulled over. I wanted to get out of there without a ticket, but I didn't need to.

Thank you so mych for that kind of a response Magical Realist!
God knew I needed that. In line of your perspective of what you might be doing if you had a partner. I like how you say that if you want one, you could be imagining all the things you would be doing with them. I always imagine what I would do with my girlfriend if she were in my life. I want to live with her. I'm 21 and still live with my mother and really don't want to anymore. I sincerely hope that I'm out of here prior to my 22 birthday.
So I began shopping around for an apartment that I might want to move into. I had a list of the things and amenities that I want (which you should anyway if you're seeking an apartment, or house for that matter, to live) and so I sat down and asked the Universe for an apartment that matches everything I could want. This was on the Friday night prior to my posting this, which was on a Saturday afternoon. The next morning I went straight to my computer and I decided I should do a little searching for places to live. Within almost no time flat, I found this cool large building in New Jersey to live in. I was shocked as it had everything I asked for.
Then I second-guessed myself and thought "OK! This seems a little too good to be true. There has to be something missing." But there wasn't. EVERYTHING that I asked for was featured in this apartment; elevator, balconies, a pool, EVERYTHING.
Except for ONE thing.
You know how most hospitals and other major building have those large and dark parking garages? Like the one pictured here? I REALLY like parking garages. Please don't ask why and call me a weirdo if you wish but I have a fetish for parking garages. Well, guess what? This apartment doesn't have it. But guess what else? I really don't care. This building has everything else I want and I still want to move into it. The parking garage really doesn't matter anyway. I could just have my girlfriend take me out to see a parking garage.
And I swear on my deathbed that I'm not making a word of this up! Now, this is what I call the Attraction's Law in action. All that's left for me is to make my move and talk to them and that new apartment is as good as mine after I talk to my longtime male friend about moving in with me so he can help me split the expenses as we work together at the same time and I'm saving up for a laptop but this money should be enough to get the apartment.
OH! And get this. Earlier this year, like over the summer or something. I did an apartment search once before! And I couldn't even find anything good back then! See what happens when you get the Universe to help you? I don't recall asking the Universe for an apartment back then.
I really enjoyed the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. Last November (2010), they aired the 1994 motion picture Star Trek: Generations on the CW Philly and little did I know that they had also been airing the television series. It would air at 3am and I would wake up in the middle of the night to watch it. It stopped airing in September because their contract with CBS and Paramount Pictures has expired. I did ask the universe to put the show back on the air but nothing so far. I'm sure they will in the near future, though.
Now tell me this. If I would prefer for my girlfriend's sister to drive us around, might I be taking driving lessons myself?
At this certain school related program that I regularly attend, let's just say there's this little situation that came up a few weeks or so ago with a female student and me. We were joking around back and fourth and it ended up getting blown out of proportion after I did my joking around and she missed the last Friday as well as yesterday (she's a Friday student). There is the possibility that she may not return. This afternoon, my left eye muscle was POUNDING really hard for a second, which means bad luck if you left eye twitches. I just pray and hope the police aren't getting involved. The staff did ask for my side of the story and I calmly told them. Now they will talk to her about it.
I prayed for her return and told myself that I would have a great week next week with this settlement being resolved without me OR her getting in any sort of disciplinary trouble. I just can't wait until Wednesday (I'm a Wednesday student) for my teacher to tell me what the student's mom said as she left several messages and had to wait for the mom to get back to her.
I'm a little amazed after you told yourself "This is NOT a big deal," and "NOTHING BAD has happened." The Universe doesn't understand such negative words. What I said to myself and Universe was "The settlement between Jessica (not her real name) and I is resolved. We get along and we work well together again." and "I am going to have a terrific week!"
I want the CW Channel stations to put Star Trek TNG back on the air, but I don't need them to for me to be happy.
I want to meet Marina Sirtis in Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Convention Center, but I don't need to to be happy.
I don't need to move to New Jersey to be happy, but I would most certainly love to.
