When I completely let go and was OK with not having what I wanted, in many cases, unfortunately not all, but in more than I expected, things turned around for me.
I'm not sure how it works, if it fits into anything on this site but I would use all these methods for many things and a lot of them only came when I completely surrendered and told myself I would be OK without them. In one case i got a phone call the same exact moment I was telling myself I am OK with letting go of it.
I have made a list of 5 major things in my life that ended up working out like that...
I thought I would share this, even if it can help one person.
The feeling of wanting only has relevance in the absence of having it.
When you want something it is a declaration that you don't have it yet. In the eternal NOW moment that declaration is a form of asking.
So a continuous NOW moment of wanting and not having is maintained as an equation of balance.
In this equation of balance, as long as you want something it must be balanced with the not having of it.
Once you have it, the wanting of it is meaningless.
The way we approach this is by tricking the equation.
We take the equation where when you want something, it must be balanced by not having it and in our mind we shift to a new balance point of already having what we want.
When you have it, you no longer want it.
So you have it in your mind and you no longer want it, (within your mind).
But the equation is not in balance, because what you already have doesn't exist yet. So the universe moves mountains in your favor to fix this imbalance and the opportunity to participate in the physical counterpart of what exists in your consciousness thrusts itself into your reality.
Yes this is the way the Sedona Method works.
The more we release the better life becomes, even the need or want of things is a hindrance to getting those things, because instead of going for them it is more of a complaint. Complaints achieve nothing.
Here is an example of the difference.
Say for example I want a new car, I have the thought of how I want that car to be, the model and every detail. Now I can say "ohhh I really want to get this new car!" I am in the wanting mode of thinking which is different from the "burning desire to have" mode of thinking. It is like saying "I wish things were different...." Good keep on wishing and wanting and see what that achieves! But when you get a burning desire to have that new car now it is not a want it is not a wish it is a goal! This is what people like Robert Collier and Napoleon Hill talked about it motivates you to move and as well it enacts the law of attraction to pull into your field things you need to fulfill every step toward attaining that new car.
Joe Vitale said in his book The Attractor Factor letting go of the want releases this so it can come back to you. It is sort of like to bounce a ball you have to first throw the ball and it returns but first you need to let it go. If you fail to let it go you keep the want it is yours to keep as long as you want.

Yes ask and you will be given. Just realize and let go! What you want and what you need are not always the same! Yes, I have done that a few times also! Example: When I was a child there was lottery in my class and in my self I said I will win it and after I said it does not matter if I win it! Then I won it!
I know exactly what you mean. I have experienced this on so many occasions myself. Let go and let the universe do its thing is what i was told once. I dont know how that works exactly but it seems to work! Let things come to you without trying to force them to come to you. Blessings!

Letting go is also an empowering feeling. Every time I let go, things always have a way of working out, sometimes even magically. I know for CERTAIN that Universe will NEVER FAIL YOU, once you let go and simply trust the process. Everything is working out for our highest good. It may not appear this way initially, yet circumstance and appearances don't matter, only state of being matters :)

I heard Bashar say that in order to manifest, there are two basic stages, the first being the "wanting/desire" aspect, and the second being "letting go". The letting go aspect , he describes as "letting your higher mind do its job", ie manifest the desire. After we have "asked", if we continue to dwell on the absence/lack of the desired thing, we are opposing our initial request .
