Detachment and Wellness

Most people consider wellness to be a state of being when the body feels good (fit and flexible), the mind is calm (open and relaxed), and the spirit feels aligned with Nature (God). We forget that in life, with all the many twists and turns of daily chores, surprises and uncertainty, it is a mega balancing act to maintain wellness.

Detachment in the face of work pressures, family stress, lack of care (rest, nourishment or movement), political upheaval, war, poverty, the whirlwind of media noise and more, is vital in maintaining wellness.

What is Detachment?

Detachment is the most misunderstood concept of spirituality. Detachment can also be thought of as non-attachment. Non-attachment is when the mind and the senses are not affected by external circumstances, situations, desires and people. It allows us to maintain balance even in the most challenging of situations.

Most times we don’t feel peace because we are either not getting what we want, or we are being triggered by people, circumstances and old conditioned belief systems. Detachment can help us find peace in any situation.

Detachment allows us to live in the present, free to make empowered choices, to focus on harmony and avoid getting entangled in unnecessary drama and stress. It gives us clear vision, so even in the most challenging situations we are able to come from a place of power, inner confidence and peace. The LiberatingTouch® Detachment Process creates an amazing healing space for the mind, so that we can detach from our stories, attitudes and addictions and experience clarity. Detachment is the secret of Infinite Peace. It endows us with the ability to live a life that is saturated with Love and Truth.

Once you teach the mind to detach from the story of fear, suffering and pain, Peace, Love and Bliss become your nature.

Below you will find an exercise to help you cultivate detachment. 

The Infinity Exercise for Detachment

The ‘Infinity Exercise’ is part of the LiberatingTouch® Detachment Process and is a visualisation technique, where you visualise or imagine that you are in one loop of a large ‘Infinity symbol’ and the object, symbol or person that you need to detach from is in the opposite loop of the ‘Infinity symbol’. You then visualise a ‘white serpent of light’ moving along the path of the ‘Infinity symbol’ (clockwise or counter-clockwise), looping around you and then looping around the ‘other’, as illustrated in the diagram below.

As you do this your thoughts will create a vortex of energy spinning around you in one direction and spinning around the loop in front of you in the opposite direction. Physics tells us that objects spinning in opposite directions cannot come together but will pull apart. A vortex will also pull everything to its centre, just like water in a sink which spirals as it drains out. When we do this exercise, we are communicating to the subconscious, in symbolic language, to deprogram our attachment to the object, person or symbol in the loop opposite us. Therefore, the subconscious will free the energy locked in the conditioned process and allow us to reclaim our power. In effect, it is breaking the pattern of control (fear). The mind is extremely powerful and thoughts can manifest energetically (as you think so it becomes).

Create Space for Wellness

This exercise can be used whenever you feel that you are reacting to someone or something, even during a phone call, or when conversing with someone. All you have to do is put yourself in one loop of the Infinity symbol, and the person or object in the other loop and visualise the ‘white serpent of light’ going along the path of the ‘Infinity symbol’, till your reaction stops, or till you experience serenity.

This one visualisation can help you at any time to create space so that you can respond to any situation/person with clarity and strength. We all know how easy it is to get enmeshed in irate conversations, to be triggered by a remark, or to feel pressured. If in that moment, you remember to visualise, think, or even trace the Infinity symbol with your fingers, and imagine that you are in one loop, and the distressing/annoying/confusing issue/person is in the other loop; you can instantly create the breathing space you require to disengage from the story and take inspired action. The use of the Infinity Exercise is colloquially referred to as infinitising.

You can infinitise to detach from someone or something which makes you react negatively, or from that which you are trying to control, or from someone or something you are allowing to control you. This exercise draws all your scattered energy back to you. Similarly all the energy of the person, or challenge, back to itself in the other loop. This weakens the energetic links and allows you to meet any situation, person, addiction, or substance with understanding and compassion.
