The Art of Detachment
You may have heard this word detachment of something being in negative terms.
My use of the word detachment or detaching oneself from the equation has a more useful meaning.
You see most of the time when we make a decision whether it’s what food we should eat or how to react to someone else’s stupidity, we act on pure emotion. That however could get us in trouble and lead to more problems.
What I would like to share with you is what I think to be a better and safe way of making immediate decisions. That is to detach yourself for a moment, pretend for a minute you are a friend to yourself and advise yourself.
Detach and remove yourself from any emotion. It’s our emotions that usually take over immediately and cause us to react. These emotions are powerful and should be watched.
It’s way too easy for those negative feelings to take over. That’s why it’s so important to watch what you are surrounded by at all times. If you listen to or surround yourself around negativity, your decision making becomes harder and harder due to your self-conscious mind planting seeds of fear, doubt and scarcity.
But…if you pay attention to your surroundings, protect what you take in on a daily basis and surround yourself with positive reinforcement, you then begin to create an inner force of clarity, focus and abundance. Then detachment becomes something more easily practiced and you can begin to make sound and clear decisions that will begin to bring your life in a better place, allowing you to achieve better health, relationships and life.
