The Art of Letting Go and Allowing Life to FLOW ~~~
Have you ever wanted something so badly that you almost couldn't stand the thought of trying to live without it?
Have you ever been afraid that something bad would happen if you couldn't get circumstances to go your way?
Have you ever lost something or someone, and felt like you didn't know how you could possibly ever be happy again?
These are all examples of EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT.
'Attachment' is an emotional investment in a specific outcome.
For example, maybe you really, really need to get that great job you have been interviewing for.
Maybe you desperately need money and you are worried that your friend won't come through in repaying the money you loaned him.
Maybe you are waiting anxiously to see the results of that pregnancy test, and you desperately hope that you are (or are not) pregnant this time.
These are all great examples of situations where you might feel a strong sense of attachment. You are 'attached' to the outcome being
in your favor...or else!
At its root, attachment is really about CONTROL.
You need to make sure the outcome turns out in a certain way because you fear that bad things will happen if it doesn't.
For example, you really need the money to come through because if it doesn't you won't be able to pay your rent and car payment. You really need that guy or that girl to be attracted to you because you can't see yourself being with anyone else. You really need that job because you just know it would be the perfect fit for you and no other job will do!
Can you sense the desperation...the urgency...in each of these examples?
Attachment is purely about the FEAR that you will not get what you want. Not only what you want, but what you think you NEED in order to be happy.
You don't want to feel like you have no control over the situation. Having no control makes you feel powerless, and no one likes to feel
Attachment vs. Detachment (Or Fear vs. Bliss!)
If you have ever been desperately attached to a certain outcome, object, person, or situation, then you probably already know what it feels like. It's a heart-pounding, jittery, anxious feeling. It's clingy and grasping, constricted and tight. It feels like panic, desperation, emptiness, and dissatisfaction.
In many cases, it can feel like a 'life or death' situation.
On the other hand, detachment feels like a sigh of relief. It feels freeing, open, expansive, and joyful. It feels like relaxation. It feels like ease and flow.
Detachment feels...simply blissful!
How Attachment Can Hold Us Back in Life
The biggest problem with an emotional attachment to something is that we truly believe that we cannot be happy without it. We place the responsibility for our happiness on someone or something else, rather than where it truly belongs, which is inside of us!
We fixate on the object, person, or situation that we think we so desperately need, insisting that nothing else will satisfy us. We say, "If I don't get _______, I will simply DIE!"
It feels that way sometimes, doesn't it?
Not only will we usually not 'die' if we don't get the thing we want so badly, but in many cases, not receiving it can be GOOD because something much better is waiting for us just around the corner!
Our fixation on one thing can block many other great possibilities because we won't let go and open to something better.
Attachment and the Law of Attraction
If you know anything about using the Law of Attraction deliberately, you know the importance of letting go and allowing the universe to work on your behalf in manifesting your desires.
The more desperately you "NEED" something, the more it stays away! You simply CANNOT allow your desires into your life when you are clinging desperately to the idea of having them.
You cannot allow anything into your life that is not a vibrational match to your energy. If you are trying to attract something that would make you feel happy and free, you cannot resonate feelings of desperation and fear. Your energy would not be a match to your desire, so it will stay away.
But when you truly LET GO -- ahh, that's when the magic happens!
That's when universal forces go to work on your behalf, delivering all kinds of wonderful surprises, opportunities, people, circumstances, and resources that will help you get exactly what you want, or even something better than you have imagined.
When you live in a state of blissful detachment, you OPEN to the many wonderful things that life has in store for you. But rather than trying to control every little detail, you simply allow a constant flow of goodness into every area of your life.
Not only do you start receiving things you really wanted, you start receiving things you didn't even know you wanted, but you are absolutely thrilled when they show up.
Manifesting your desires becomes easy, effortless, fun, and fast!
How to Be Detached
Now for the hard part: how on earth do you get and stay detached from those things you really, really want? Are you supposed to just not want anything? Do you have to stop caring about the things that are important to you?
Desire is a natural part of life. It's normal to want things. We see something we like, and we want it. We see a person we are attracted to, and we want to be with them. We see something that we think will make us happy, and it's completely natural for us to want to acquire it or experience it.
Detachment is not about squashing your desires for everything good that life has to offer.
Rather, detachment is about releasing that sense of 'desperate need.' It's about knowing that you are complete as you are, knowing that the world will not end if you don't receive that one specific thing you've got your eye on.
It's about TRUSTING the universe to provide for you and deliver the desires of your heart when the time is right, and knowing that you will be just fine in the meantime.
Most importantly, it's about NOT basing your happiness on any external circumstances. Certainly, there are things in life that can contribute to your sense of happiness, but they are not the CAUSE of your happiness.
When you live in a state of blissful detachment, you are simply OPEN to the good things that life has to offer, and you are no longer crippled by feelings of fear, worry, doubt, or impatience.
You allow life to ebb and flow around you, feeling centered, secure, calm, and serene. Knowing that all is well, knowing that
there is never any cause for fear, knowing that you are okay, despite whatever comes and goes in your life.
The Practice of Detachment
