How to Unlock Your Power with the Law of Detachment

How to Unlock Your Power with the Law of Detachment

With endless trends on our self-care and self-improvement radars, it can be hard to know what to trust. But despite what you might think, the philosophy behind the Law of Detachment is not all that new—it's centuries old! In life, we have two choices: we can attach ourselves firmly to thoughts, actions, behaviors, feelings, and outcomes, or we can learn how to let them go. So, take a risk on the Law of Detachment as you tread a new personal path, and feel the weight of what's holding you back start to lift!

What Is the Law of Detachment

Having complete control can be one of the most gratifying and one the most nerve-wracking experiences. Using the Law of Detachment, you will learn how to rewire your brain to embrace the chaos of uncertainty and loosen your grip on control. Sounds scary, right? However, this philosophy has found a home in religions like Buddhism and Taoism. When you learn to implement the Law of Detachment in your daily life, you free up energy you can supply to other areas of your life. Instead of fighting for control of actions, behaviors, feelings, and outcomes, let go to invite spontaneity and newness into your life. You will be surprised by what surprises await you.

The Law of Detachment and Goal-Setting

If the Law of Detachment asks you to relinquish control, how does this affect your ability to make and achieve your goals? The answer lies in understanding a fundamental distinction: this philosophy doesn't ask you to stop desiring, wishing, or dreaming; it's only asking us to give up preconceived notions about how our goals and dreams manifest. Traditionally, when we brainstorm our goals, we tend to make very clear steps to achieve the final product. With the Law of Detachment, our goals remain the same; however, we release the pressure surrounding the steps and timelines it takes to get there. Not only can our dreams remain the same, but they can also shift and transform according to how life organically unfolds. Having a firm grip of control on every aspect of our dreams limits other opportunities and options that could be life-changing.

The Law of Detachment and Relationships

Detached and in love? That doesn't seem right. However, with the Law of Detachment, get ready to embrace what true love is all about. When you make the Law of Detachment the center of your relationships, you will find that your love is no longer defined by coercion or manipulation to make your friend or partner act or feel in specific ways. Letting go of control in a relationship invites you and those you love to make mistakes, learn from them, and grow more organically in the process. Remember to set boundaries, respect the boundaries of your friend and partner, honor feelings, and let go of your need to control every aspect of your relationships.

Control is an illusion. When you learn to embrace detachment, you will find that opportunities and options you never dreamed of are now a part of your exciting new reality!
