If you want something, stop trying to obtain it.
This is the Law of Detachment. This spiritual principle states that in order to manifest something or someone, we must release attachments to the outcome. It’s relative to the Law of Attraction with the belief that you trust the Universe to give you your desires when it’s meant to come. You don’t force anything, you just trust and surrender.
It’s important to use the Law of Detachment when manifesting, and here’s how you can do that:
Clarify your desires.
Be honest with yourself. What do you really want?
A specific person or relationship? A specific car or home? A trip to the place you’ve always wanted to visit? A better-paying, more fulfilling job?
Clearly define what you want to manifest. Be specific about your goals and desires. Set your intentions clearly and positively. With clarity, you can then focus your energy more effectively.
Trust the process.
Detaching means having full faith that the universe, god, or a higher power is giving you everything you desire. It’s all about divine timing. You have to trust and release the worries and need for control. Let go of the obsessive need for a specific outcome. You have to believe that things are unfolding the way they are meant to, even if you can’t see it happening.
Just because something isn’t in the palm of your hands yet doesn’t mean it’s not at your fingertips.
Be present and practice mindfulness.
If you’re one to dwell on the past or harbor too much anxiety toward the future, then you’ll probably have a hard time detaching. But if you want to manifest your deepest desires, you have to focus on the present moment.
Engage fully into what you’re doing now. Try mindfulness and meditative practices like body scans or breath awareness to help you focus on who and where you are in the present moment. Meditation techniques can help you cultivate a sense of detachment and train your brain to observe thoughts without getting attached to them. When you make peace with where and who you are, you can then learn how to let go of worries when they arrive.
Maintain a positive mindset.
According to the Law of Attraction, your thoughts become things. What you think about, you bring about.
When you see, feel, and think negativity, you attract more negativity into your life. By focusing on what you don’t want, you are essentially going to attract that. So if you think about what you do want, you will then attract that. When you see, feel, and think positively, you attract more positivity into your life.
It’s hard to be hopeful and positive when nothing looks or feels that way, but with the Law of Attraction, you have to act As If. This is the idea that by acting as if you have already reached your goal or have already obtained a person or thing, you are aligning yourself with that higher version of yourself, and it brings your manifestations to you. Fostering a positive mindset is difficult, but with these high vibrations, you can detach and manifest your deepest desires.
Release any resistance.
Limiting beliefs keep us from achieving our highest potential.
For example, maybe you feel as if you always have to have a plan because, without one, you feel pressure, anxiety, and uncertainty. Or maybe you feel as if you’re not good enough and that you have to constantly prove yourself and obtain validation.
These limiting beliefs are essentially holding you back from stepping into your highest self and achieving all that you desire and want to manifest. You have to identify your limiting beliefs and release them, that’s the only way you’re going to actually manifest.
