The Law of Detachment
As we discussed earlier, the law of attraction works in conjunction with other “laws” in order to manifest the things that you want from life. The law of attraction, the law of deliberate creation and the law of allowing were the first three in our 7 part series. Next up is the law of detachment which states that in order to acquire anything in the physical Universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. In other words, you need to let go of the outcome and detach from expectations.
This does not mean that you have to create by default or that you should not desire or intend for what you want to create. Detachment comes from having an abundance consciousness because you trust and know that everything will fall into the perfect place and time.
Yes, it is one of nature’s best paradoxes. To attract what you want into your life, you need to think positively about it, expect it to happen, and take inspired action steps toward it, but you also need to detach yourself from the outcome. At this point, you may be saying, “What?”
Here’s the thing. You need to hold the why and let the Universe carry the how. Focus on the positive reasons of why you want what you are trying to attract, but trust that the Universe knows best how to make it happen. It’s actually quite beautiful once you understand it because you pretty much delegate it over to the Universe, and then you simply open yourself up to accept the nudges that the Universe sends to you. It is very freeing to let the how go since most of us agonize over that part, and it is also much less stressful because if you pay attention, the Universe will tell you what to do every step of the way. You’ll find yourself meeting the right people, being in the right places at the right times, and feeling inspired to take action.
You’ve probably heard the saying, “If you want something, let it go.” That’s the law of detachment! The reason it works is because when you are struggling to make something happen, you are doing just that – struggling. You get stressed, worn out and frustrated, and in that state, nothing good can come to you. But when you trust in the Universe, you allow it to use all of its Universal knowledge and “magic” to make it happen for you in a joyful way.
