Releasing Attachments

release_smYour soul doesn’t worry about getting its own way.  In fact, your soul doesn’t cling to anything.  At a soul level every moment contains potential contentment and ease.  Does this sound out there, impossible to attain?  Try these practical suggestions for moving toward a soul-centered calmness.

Release attachments to evolve from your ego-based “little s” self to your soul-oriented “big S” Self.  Notice your “rules,” what you find acceptable as well as what seems intolerable.  The more intense the attachment, the more tension arises when life doesn’t conform to your wishes.  Ask yourself whether your preferences and attachments matter in the larger scheme of things.  Will it matter tomorrow, next week, next year, or at the end of your life?  Notice how releasing preferences liberates you.

Notice when you perceive anything or anyone as a problem, a way of judging and rejecting the here and now as unacceptable.  What appears as messiness at a human level actually represents perfection from the soul perspective, ideally suited for each person’s evolution.  Recently when I explored what I considered someone’s problematic rigidness, I learned from the Akashic Records rigidity represents calcified attachments.  How amusing to discover I felt intolerant toward someone else’s intolerance!

Remember your soul embodies ease and grace, not tension and anxiety.  You can approach these states when you engage in time-proven approaches such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, and other spiritual practices which help release your mind’s busyness and attachment.  The more you invite your soul rather than your mind to guide your actions, the more joy and satisfaction you experience.

Do you catch yourself wanting situations, experiences, or people to change?  Does it help to remember you don’t have attachments at a soul level?

  1. Wishing for change … All the time in my role as a hospital floor nurse … I get squeezed from all directions. Repeating the mantra I learned from Access Consciousness: “All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory” helps when I can really get into “feeling” it as I repeat it. But usually I am so stressed out trying to keep my head above water that I don’t remember the mantra.
    I believe on a soul level we are getting something from the situations we find ourselves in and that we have free will in choosing how our ego’s will react. When our soul has learned or experienced all it has set out to from a particular situation or type of something it draws in new lessons, new experiences. So now I’m wondering if the fact that I feel so stuck, so paralyzed in getting out of hospital nursing or just plain floor nursing is a sign of a calcified attachment.
    Something to ponder and meditate upon! Perhaps incorporating the Safety Energy Lock Payer into my daily practice will assist me also.

    • Joyce,
      Thanks for your comment and sharing. I love the idea of incorporating my Safety Energy Lock prayer into daily practice! I may have to try that myself. 🙂

      I would guess your nursing career is less about attachment and more about transcending what the mind throws at you. Our minds create stress based on how they react to what happens. In nursing there’s a steady stream of events which could cause anyone’s mind to hit the stress button particularly when others around you are habitually stressed, so staying there *comfortably* would require a great deal of mastery which can be viewed as either an opportunity or a curse!

      Best wishes,
      Christy

  2. Definitely a thought-provoking post. Favorite line ~ What appears as messiness at a human level actually represents perfection from the soul perspective, ideally suited for each person’s evolution. It is so easy to judge others, not realizing that we could be stunting our own emotional growth.

    Thanks Christy!

    • Hi Joanne,
      I enjoy it when you point out your favorite line! Your comment made me realize judgment stunts everyone’s growth, not just our own. Thanks for sharing your perspective as it informed my own!

  3. In this article, you explained, “When I explored what I considered someone’s problematic rigidness, I learned from the Akashic Records rigidity represents calcified attachments. How amusing to discover I felt intolerant toward someone else’s intolerance!” I started to laugh because my next thought was “I don’t feel intolerant of someone else’s intolerance – unless they’re wrong.” So, there you go. In the end, I am responsible for my own thoughts, words, actions, behaviors, and choices. This post is another lovely reminder that nothing and no one is against me (unless I get in my own way). What wonderful power there is in the action of release.

    • Ha Julie, thanks for the laugh! We humans are such funny creatures, aren’t we? You’re so right – we tend to be the obstructions we’re looking to remove. 🙂
