Letting Go of Attachments

Butterfly Hands

Attachments create a resistance to our receiving what we want in our lives.  When we let go of attachments, we let go of the roadblocks that we create.  The only thing that is left is the experience without attachment.  It is our birthright to receive the blessings of the Universe.  All we have to do is be open enough to receive them.  All we have to do is…get out of the way.

When we are emotionally attached to something or someone, it can bring up negative thinking.  It is not the same as doing creative visualization and setting goals in life.  Instead, the energy says, “I want this.  I have to have this.  I must experience it just this way.  I cannot survive if I do not get this.  I cannot live without you.  I am worth nothing without you.  I am not enough; therefore, I have to have this.  If I have this, it will bring me happiness.  I do not have enough.  I must have more.  I must have more so I can feel more fulfilled and complete.”  It is never enough when we think like this.  We create voids within ourselves.  We remain empty.  We hope that someone or something will come along to fill our emptiness.

As long as we remain empty inside, nothing outside of ourselves will every fulfill us.  Nothing will ever be enough.  By loving ourselves first, we fill the void, erase the emptiness and experience love.  When we have this, everything else is a blessing, not an attachment.
