How to let go of attachment

2013 - How to let go of attachment

Being attached to things, people, thoughts happen all the time.  This idea of attachment forms when we are a teeny baby.  As a baby we form an emotional bond between us and our parents.  It’s natural to have this bond.  Without it, we wouldn’t survive.

But at some point, being attached to something or someone no longer serves us – it actually hinders us.  Because nothing else can enter our lives. We only have so much space and time.

Much like physical things, we can get attached to thoughts as well.  This is where we have to be conscious of what thoughts we are keeping and what thoughts are we letting go of.

For example, for many years I’ve always wondered “Am I good enough?”.  This question would pop into my head and my mind would always answer “No”.  I wasn’t always consciously aware of this thought as it was more like background music I could hear but wasn’t really aware of.

However, once I identified this reoccurring thought I was able to let go of the idea of not being good enough.  The thought was no longer serving me and I was given the power to choose whether or not to believe this thought instead of automatically excepting the thought.

Do you have things, people, and/or thoughts that you want to let go of?

If you said yes, this weeks Simple Tips to bring JOY to your Life and Business is just for you!  It’s a special simple tips video where I show you a simple meditation for you to start to detach yourself from those things, people, and thoughts.

Try this meditation for 3 minutes and start to release your attachments.  Notice the difference you feel after the meditation.

Because liberation means that you liberate yourself from all attachments, especially the attachments that keep you small. And liberation will bring more freedom and joy to your life!  It gives you the power to create your own future!

A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”  – Byron Katie (you can tweet this)
