Un-attachment must come BEFORE the desire. :)
Look at it this way.
Are you perfect right now? Now? Well, I would have to say yes. You have no lack because you vibrate in a place of no lack. All possibilities all at once.
Since you are perfect NOW and we agree upon that, and the "outcome" (future event) has not yet come to fruition, then is it not safe to say if the situation does not come out favorable then you would be in this same place as NOW? Yes. Then if now is perfect without the future event we can safely say that regardless of what happens you will be in the same perfect now.
This is non attachment. Seeing there is no difference in have or have not, with or without and later and now. What we decide to project determines our state of mind. not outside forces.
Enjoy the ride!
I envision what it is that I want, and then tell myself, "This, or something even better!" In that way, I am hoping for the object or situation of my desires, but also in expectation that it could be something even better for me. In this way, I am not attached to the outcome, because I know whatever comes my way will be for my highest good, but it could be a surprise rather that what I "thought I wanted". Not sure I am explaining this correctly, but I guess I am saying that if you are open to other outcomes as well, it's good and keeps you feeling unattached to just one. Usually you will get what you wanted, but sometimes it will be something better or something you needed. Let the Infinite decide and just relax.

I would say that detachment is called for here.
You have already sent your thoughts out into the Mind of God. They are zipping around at the speed of light (actually, it's faster than that). No more action is needed on your part. Try to forget you even thought the thoughts. Now, detach from the outcome...This requires a sort of "release" inside your mind. I actually have just gotten the hang of "releasing", and it works! You have to slip your total desire out of the picture. It is enough that you have sent the message to the Universe. Get busy with other things, and trust.
This should work well. Try it; you'll like it! (LOL!)
Much Love, Jaianniah
