Hi Anisa, I am a little confused. I am practicing the Law of Attraction. to get and manifest your desires, you desire it, see it and feel it in your heart. Like a movie in your mind. I am wondering why the Law of Detachment is saying the opposite of what the Law of Attraction says?|
Thank you for your email and questions.
The law of attraction operates on an energetic level - drawing and magnetizing comparable energy; energy and experiences that are vibrationally attuned with our most dominant thoughts. When we desire something, we launch a vibration that begins to bring that experience into our lives. However, desire alone is not enough to complete the vibrational creation. It"s when we take our thoughts to the level of "allowing" that our dreams can solidify and materialize.
The law of detachment says that we must relinquish our attachment to our desire in order to manifest it. Let"s look at what detachment is and what it is not. We are attached when we feel that we will not be satisfied until or unless we get what we want (our desires fulfilled) therefore we are "attached" to the outcome. Desire alone without faith, willingness, confidence, acceptance, expectation and/or certainty yields a vibrationally descending or repelling space. Desire alone is NOT enough to manifest our dreams.
Detachment does not require that we give up our desire. Detachment is not apathy or indifference. Effective detachment never feels negative - ever! Effective detachment feels freeing! When we are successfully detached from the outcome we feel like the Universe has our back; like all is well; like we can trust in our greater good; like we are absolutely certain that all that we desire is already ours.
Seeing and feeling what we want in our hearts absolutely supports the conscious creation of the life we desire. However, if we see it and feel it during our meditation but then later in the day continue to acknowledge "we still don"t have what we want", then we counter-act the very creation we launched earlier. We are STILL applying the law of attraction, but we are attracting the opposite of what we "desire" and the opposite of what we "envisioned" earlier.
For example, I have a friend that owes back taxes. We spoke about her manifesting the money to pay them off and how wonderful it would feel to be financially free. As we were discussing her living vision, it came out that what she wanted was "to not have the pressure of this debt."
Unfortunately, the vibration of "back taxes" and "pressure of debt" is so incredibly negative that it"s a real challenge to get into the space of, "all is well" and "I am financially free."
As you can imagine, even though the desire is strong for financial freedom, as long as the subconscious thoughts are resonating with the fear of the back taxes, then the desire ALONE is not enough to attract resolution.
This is where the law of detachment comes in. It is essential to intentional creation to get into a feeling place of peaceful expectation that what we want is already at hand. As long as we are "attached" we will continue to focus on the negative aspects of what we don"t want and the fears that come up as we doubt our ability to manifest.
Effectively applying the law of attraction requires both desire and acceptance. Practicing the law of detachment is how we can accept and expect what we desire. The two laws work harmoniously to support us in effectively applying the power of our minds and the universal laws of creation.
Using EFT to apply the Law of Detachment
Emotional Freedom Technique is simply awesome at supporting the Law of Detachment in our lives. (This is not an understatement!)
If you feel "attached" to the outcome of whatever you want to create, use EFT to get rid of the attachment.
Here"s a quick way to clarify the attachments and EFT them away:
1 - List what you"re afraid will happen if you don"t get what you want.
2 - Take the reasons on your list that are the most troubling, put them into an "Even though I"m afraid." statement.
3 - EFT the negative - starting with the set-up phrase then one pass on the points with the negative reminder phrase (Set up: Even though I"m afraid.) & (points: ".this fear").
4 - Now implant the positive (the positive opposite of this fear that you want instead). For example, "What if I were at peace." or "What if I trusted in the Divine Order." or "I choose to allow myself to courageously and boldly.."
A few generic set-up examples:
Even though I"m afraid that I can"t have what I want..
Even though I"m afraid that I"ll lose (this thing) if I don"t get what I want.
Even though I"m afraid that even if I get what I want this will happen too.
Even though I"m afraid that it won"t be enough.
Even though I"m afraid that I won"t be able to handle (this) if I get what I want.
Even though I"m afraid that I"m inadequate and don"t possess the (talent, intelligence, skills etc.)..
(Remember, you"ll do three set-up phrases on Karate Chop point or Sore Spot then you"ll use a negative reminder to do one pass on the body points. Then, you"ll complete the EFT round with positive implants. See below.)
A few generic positive implant examples:
What if I were optimistic and trusted in myself to see this through easily?
What if I were hopeful and allowed myself to be happy?
What if I trusted in the Divine Order and knew all was well?
What if I were satisfied with "what is" and still easily allowed myself to reach for me?
What if I courageously and boldly took action now?
What if I were willing to risk failure and risk success?
What if I were at peace now?
I choose to trust in the Divine.
I choose to allow my greatest good to flow effortlessly to me now.
I choose to enjoy this moment and joyously create the next too.
With EFT & LOA, you"ll find that you begin to enjoy an overall sense of wellness that you may have never experienced before. Each round of EFT creates subtle but lasting results. Ask anyone that"s done EFT for an extended period of time. They will tell you that they "don"t know why" but their life is simply more peaceful, joyous, and easy! It must be all that EFT!!!!
