From a LOA point of view, it has been said that whenever you desire something, a launch of desire is rocketed into the universe and the things that you desire are already formed and on your way to you. In term of Abraham-Hicks teachings, it's said that whenever you desire something, you place that something inside the vortex, and all you need to do is get into the vortex and you will be in vicinity of those things.. or somewhere along those lines.
So let's say I desire a huge sum of money(maybe 1 million dollars?) today, or a car. So I have placed this 1 million dollars or a car in my vortex. So all I need to do is to get into my vortex and let the things I put there come to me naturally.
But what if one week later, I decided that I don't want so much money or I dont need a car anymore? Are they in a sense, literally, removed from my vortex? Or will they still come to me eventually even if I dont want them anymore, since I originally placed (or created) them there?

It might surprise you to know that you can never release a desire for something once you've desired it. You can only release the resistance you had to wanting it.
This is why when people finally give up chasing the thing they are after, it suddenly comes to them...and often very quickly.
What they've given up is only the resistance to it coming, not the desire.
In the moment that you wanted something, a part of you has become that thing vibrationally. You are now a person that has projected a part of themselves into that desire...and you can't go back!
Ever noticed how once someone has had a desire for something, then no matter what they do they are now never as satisfied with their life as they were before they had the desire? ("Ignorance is bliss")
Now you know why that happens...the desire has caused them to change who they are...they've expanded as a vibrational being.
Eternal ongoing expansion is the keynote of this universe.
I think a lot of people have the impression that desiring something is a sedate, gentle process akin to sitting down in a warm, cosy armchair in a darkened room with a hot cup of tea and then steadily contemplating what to desire next in some deliberate fashion.
It's not like that at all!
Just in living your everyday life, you are launching desires continually and completely automatically and there is nothing you can do to stop it. In fact, the universe exists to generate desire.
It's true that some people still try to stop themselves feeling desire, but it's like trying to turn back the tide...even the desire to be desireless is still a desire :)
Now if you decide to focus elsewhere in your life from your desire and, through your attention elsewhere, you now launch desires for other things, the universe will incrementally add these new desires into what you originally desired and you will often get, what I call, blended manifestations.
See the introduction to Manifesting Experiment 1 for some explanation of this idea.
With all of what I've said here, bear in mind that the universe is responding to the essence of your desires, not the actual language wording you think represents your desires.
For example, you may be thinking to yourself that you've launched a desire for 1 million dollars but the essence of that desire would be something like "a sense of freedom and independence". And so your vibrational matches and manifestations will usually match that essence...though it is also quite possible also that the essence will coincide with your language wording of that essence, but there's no guarantee of that.
Hope that is clear.
Most of us aren't adept at manifesting instantaneously, so there is a buffer of time before the manifestation actually comes into physical reality. When we focus our attention on what we desire and feel good about it, we are causing that desire to move toward us.
However, when we send out a desire contrary to what we originally wanted, we are Now giving our attention to that new desire and if done consistently the new desire will move towards us if we are feeling good about it.
I think if we send out conflicting desires, we'll end up with the one we have the most feeling about - albeit positive or negative.
