The Law Of Detachment

detachmentThe sixth essential universal law is The Law of Detachment. The Law of Detachment says in order to acquire anything in the physical universe you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This does not mean that you have to create by default or that you should not desire something or intend to create anything. This means that the law of detachment works in harmony with the other laws including the Law of Attraction. The Law of Detachment is all about trust.

An acronym for TRUST could be: To Rely Unto Spirit Totally

Most of us have a hard time detaching from the timing of how things manifest and that things will come at the perfect time. When we trust that the universe knows what perfect timing is, it happens even faster because we get out of the way. If we stand in the way of the energy creating the outcome or result through our lack of trust, insecurity and fearfulness, we put a barrier in the way, blocking the efficiency of that that flow. It creates resistance.

Loss of attachment simply gives us the power to fully allow. Loss of attachment equals freedom. That freedom is necessary to be open to new things in life. It is as if one were traversing the monkey bars in the playground. You can not hold on tight and expect to move anywhere. You must let go and reach for the next rung with an open hand.

The less attached we are to one thing; the more space is available for everything else. If we are attached to nothing then we are available then to everything. Everything we want does come into our lives.

Focus on what you want but relax about the timing of it. Detachment is another way of saying “allowing.” It is when you combine holding your intention along with detaching from the outcome that you desire will manifest.

The universe responds best when you are detached from your desire. That is, you are not desperate or obsessed. When you think “I must have this” or “if I don’t get this I will be a failure,” you are locking your awareness into a fixed, rigid mode. When you master the Law of Detachment, you are able to maintain presence while being committed to your goal. Detachment is a quality of attention. Your intention is for the future, but your attention is in the present. As long as your attention is focused in the present, then your intention for the future will manifest.

The Law of Detachment is the missing piece for most people because too much energy is given to how something should unfold or conditions are placed upon the outcome.  Relax, detach, and trust that everything that you wish to manifest is on the way and it will arrive at the perfect time.

What specific outcomes do you find yourself attached to that you can apply the Law of Detachment to?
