Being Detached…

Hey guys,

I got a Facebook post the other day that really resonated with me, and I thought I’d share with you the essence of that post…

‘Detachment is experiencing our feelings, without letting them control us.

Detachment is where we can step back and look at things objectively.

Detachment is where we can let go and accept the things we cannot change.

Freedom is when we detach from others choices, knowing it is THEIR spiritual work to do.’

If we can let ourselves stand back from situations and observe rather than react, we can then stay balanced and in our power.

When we react and get caught up in what is going on around us, we become unbalanced.

When we are unbalanced, we can’t help and we become ineffectual.

For example, if someone panics and we panic with them, can we help them?

If someone is stuck in the mud and we jump in there with them, can we help them?

And, what if that mud was quicksand?

Being detached can be very freeing, WHEN we are coming from the place of KNOWING that everything is exactly as it is SUPPOSED to be…

Being detached from the outcome and needing things to be a certain way, allows us to enjoy the journey on the way to the destination.

Being detached can be very healing for the people around us as well as we become that lighthouse for them when they are caught on their rollercoasters.

When we join them on their rollercoaster, we lose the ability to help them as keeping them company while we are unbalanced only makes the situation worse.

Being detached only becomes a problem when we are using it to protect ourselves from hurt, disappointment, fear etc

Then we become cold, and we disconnect from ourselves, and that is not good for us at all!

When we walk in that place of knowing, living and breathing that Louise Hay saying, which is a Universal Truth in itself…

‘Everything is working out for my highest good!’

We walk in balance!

We need to also trust that everything is also working out for EVERYONE ELSE’S highest good as well!

Observe and see what lessons they have chosen, and instead of feeling sorry for them, applaud them for their bravery for choosing that lesson in the first place!!!

We are ALL Spiritual Beings having this Human Experience, honour yourself and those around you by observing from that balanced, detached space where you can offer strength, wisdom, comfort and assistance when required…

And, while you are at it, why not see Yourself and the lessons that you have chosen, from that detached place, so that you can realise that you were doing the best you could with what you knew…

And then applaud YOURSELF for the bravery it took to choose those lessons in the first place!

And remember…


Play and see where it takes you 🙂

Many blessings for this moment, this day, this week, this month, this year and always…
