The Law of Detachment states, “in order to acquire anything in the physical Universe, you have to  relinquish your attachment to it.”  In other words, “Let Go and Let God.”

To exercise the Law of Detachment, first you need to recognize that Heavenly Father wants what is best for you.  You need to recognize that every situation is an opportunity for growth and development.  Even when things don’t work out the way you would have liked, you have faith that they worked out in a way that will be beneficial for you.

Perhaps you don’t get the promotion that you’d hoped for.  Trust that a better opportunity will come your way.  Perhaps you have car problems.  Trust that there was a good purpose behind the car malfunction.  Perhaps a relationship didn’t work out.  Trust that the right person is yet to come.

That doesn’t mean that you don’t throw out the vibration for the promotion.  That doesn’t mean you don’t work toward the promotion.  It doesn’t mean that you are indifferent to the promotion.  It means you do your best and recognize that Heavenly Father loves you and wants what is best for you in the long run.  You trust that there is enough and that you deserve all great things coming to you.  So, while you may get the promotion, you recognize that if you don’t get the promotion its because something better is coming your way.

When you put out the positive vibration of working toward the promotion and let go of the fear and uncertainty of NEEDING to have the promotion, then the Law of Attraction can begin to work.

Do you see the difference?

Wanting the promotion, doing your best to get the promotion, but letting go of the attachment to the outcome allows you to let go of fear, uncertainty, and ego.  Replacing fear, uncertainty, and ego with trust and faith will naturally bring joy.  When you are sending out vibrations of trust and faith and joy, then you receive positive things in return.  When you put out the vibration of fear, uncertainty, and ego, then you receive negative things in return.

Let’s see how this works in the case of a relationship.  Applying the Law of Detachment in your life means that you recognize that there are good  men out there (or women as the case may be).  You recognize that you are worthy of having a good relationship with a loving and caring person.  You visualize the type of person you are looking for.  You put yourself in situations where you can meet the type of person you visualize yourself being with.  You trust that when the time is right, Heavenly Father will provide the opportunity for you to meet the person who would be best for you.  Then when you begin a relationship you can relax and be comfortable knowing that if this is the person you are supposed to be with, then everything will work out – but if things don’t work out it’s because that wasn’t the person who was best for you.

This doesn’t mean you’re indifferent to the relationship.  Indifference is not caring one way or the other.  The Law of Detachment involves caring and working toward, but giving up the expectation of the outcome.  It means you can relax, be yourself, and enjoy your time together instead of worrying and stressing over whether or not this is “the one”.

Detachment  is another way of saying allowing.  When you combine your intentions and detach from the outcomes then your desires will manifest.

Can you see how freeing the Law of Detachment is?
